Yes I remember JN describing the blurry black and white thing that ‘killed the Hukui mom’ - like a hit and run :( 

 

Ep 23 - I dislike the misogynistic subplot of elder sis. Mr. Liu is typical trash of a man; he even knocked out his wife - poor lady being duped. Why these wives of cheaters always blame the other women before realizing it’s the guy that step out of the marriage first?! Ambition at the expense of one’s family is a clear theme here….
 

One thing I do love about the show is the story - it’s quite complex with lots of schemings and everyone def not what they seem.

Yes, I was quite confused with Miss Hehe, too. She just appeared out of nowhere! I was like... da-fuq? Then When XFN said she was a beef noodle seller and he often ate at her stall, I kinda got this feeling she wasn't evil after all? Then she pierced thru his body with her bare hand... I was like... maybe she is a great undercover assassinator waiting to do her job? This show is so unpredictable. The only thing that is predictable is XFN won't die that easily. LOL! You know, since he's the ML. LOL!

 

The plot is good, the schemes by all the parties are complex. If most shows have a 2-3 step plot this show has a 6-7 step plot, as viewers we all know what XFN and XX are capable of but imagine being one of those supporting characters. Your life will be so messed up if you messed with the Xu family. 

 

I have re-watched a second time and yes, you catch more and understand more during the second watch. Maybe I'll give it a third watch when I'm cleaning my house. LOL!

Update: Finished.
 

Another thing about this drama that I love is the exploration of ‘family’ and the thin line between what people do for their family vs in the name of family and all the grey zones. A key point of XFN was that he would never be like XX to take advantage of family for the greater good but how in some circumstances, XFN can do better than his father and yet still end up having to act like XX when there’s no other way e.g. sending Human’er away or leaving big sis as she wished. Also, we see other side characters all face this too - Scholar Lin destroyed his family by being manipulated to think he was acting for the greater good in plotting to kill XFN. Or now the Xuanyang family sacrificing the only girl offspring just to have access to the Celestial Realm. 
 

ep 31 I cried a little bit - Xuanyang father’s story arc was a great father- daughter story. I’m thinking where have I seen Qingfeng actress before hmmm. I keep on laughing at Zhao Kai’s attempt to get everyone to kill XFN and failing miserably. LMAO at the grandmaster being trapped in a little boy heheheh

 

When they were on the Wudi City Walls, Zhao Kai’s comment re how lucky XFN is was funny but true. He has good parents with great of foresight and allies. These flashback of Old Huang is making me emo.

 

What a great way to send season 1 - satisfying and also leaving you with enough to look forward to for season 2. I hope we won’t have to wait for too long.

Nope, but she's following them around! :lol: Jiang Ni would remember seeing her where they found the Hukui cubs.

She (Miss HeHe) was also mentioned (but as a description only) as the messenger who brought the note about the World No.11 Swordsman to the hotel they were at in Qing Zhou.

I was happy to see more scenes of Old Huang, and was also very emo too. Especially framed in XFN's perspective, it made me miss him as like the prince. Even when they had his hat, drinking bottle and salt shaker hung up by the wall as XFN came to the top level where the other 6 swordsman were waiting, and said, [Old Huang] you're here as well'. 

 

If Season 2 happens, I'm afraid its going to be a long while...even after filming, it seems to be at least a year to broadcast.

 

And... B) don't you all think in these jiang hu stories - it seems like (one of) the best thing you can do for your children is to give some food, give some money, or  kindness to a less fortunate person/people - the more the better - because maybe in the future, one day when they have become a great martial artists, or a person in power - they will repay the debt and help or save your child.:)

Its like XFN amassed so many debts repayments from his parents that saved his life aplenty or received great blessings and good fortune ..he is indeed lucky (reincarnarted well as Zhou Kai said). Zhou Kai also got his master due to the same kindness from his mother too.

@lilviolet I’ve had to wait a long long time for some Cdramas so a year or two is not much for me lol. There will be other things to enjoy as we wait!

Yes, it is a common element of Jiang Hu and Wuxia stories that people should be treated with kindness and moral righteousness to form meaningful relationships and it’s base on these strong bonds that leads to blessings. But I have seen plenty of stories where sometimes goodness doesn’t guarantee anything too.

 

I guess now that I am thinking on it are there guesses on who is Miss Hehe’s Shifu/master?? I am still not sold on her character - even if in the end she saves him from the bad curse. I guess her bits were choppy because of the editing down of the drama to fit 38 episodes.

Will there be a second season?

Viewers infer there is because of the manner in which it ended but I think there has been no formal announcements yet. Let's see!

I wonder if people that read the novel could like give us a ran down on the fate of some the characters. I know from the internet that in the novel he married White Fox, Pei Nanwei, Jia Ni, and someone name Sweet Potato. But I’m like truly curious who else he marries or have kids with. It’s quite sad that China be clamping down on harem stories. I feel like for characters like this the harem actually makes sense. And I truly hope that a kind soul would take it upon themselves to translate the novel. Actually it would even be better if a publishing company took upon themselves to translate the novel.
