Ep 30:

TBJ faints from kneeling overnight. He immediately gets checked by the royal physician who says that since TBJ has been exposed to rain, his health is very weak and will be difficult to heal. His mother gets anxious for TBJ’s health but doesn’t want to give in to him and Weiyang’s relationship.Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 12.57.11 pm.pngDuring the night, TBJ suddenly wakes up from a nightmare about Weiyang so his servant quickly goes to get a doctor to check on his health. It looks like this was a ploy so that TBJ can leave the palace in the doctor’s attire without arousing suspicion. TBJ then quickly goes to save Weiyang while the Emperor realises his grandson has secretly left the palace. The Emperor then orders that TBJ is not allowed to come back to the Capital while his mother tries to plead for him.Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 1.04.08 pm.pngMeanwhile, Changle gets the news of the Emperor’s orders and wants to go and plead for TBJ. However, CYN tells her that there’s no point and that he won’t help her plead. CYN then tries to make her think rationally and to persuade her that she shouldn’t help TBJ by telling her that TBJ escaped only to save Weiyang and to marry her.Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 1.07.58 pm.pngThen, we see TBY and her servant talking how the Ling Song’s advisor keeps on delaying their trip for a few days already and that there might be a hidden agenda. He then goes to see Weiyang who keeps on wondering why isn’t TBJ here yet to save her. TBY tells Weiyang that if she had accepted his offer to become his wife, she wouldn’t be in this dire situation but Weiyang just tells him that she doesn’t regret it.Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 1.11.21 pm.pngThen its nightfall, and we see the guards drinking and chatting with each other while TBY and the advisor have a meal together. After drinking a cup of wine, both TBY and his servant lose consciousness – they were drugged. However, we note that TBY was awake the whole time and has heard the advisor’s plan.Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 1.13.53 pm.pngMeanwhile, Weiyang, Baizhi and Juntao seems to be drugged as well by the advisor as he tells them that this was their plan all along. As they tried to capture Weiyang, TBY remains outside eavesdropping on the situation. He tells his servant to wait a bit longer, despite the advisor forcing himself on Weiyang. Just as he was about to go in, TBJ comes in and kills the advisor, saving Weiyang again.Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 1.16.58 pm.pngAfterwards, TBJ and his servant goes to ‘wake up’ TBY and his men. TBY pretends to not know anything while TBJ explains the situation. He then asks for time alone with Weiyang, so everyone left. We see the couple back in their little bubble as they both relay their worries and promises to each other. TBJ then left as his servant called on him, but not before complimenting Weiyang, “beautiful”.Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 1.24.06 pm.pngNext, TBJ requests his uncle, TBY, to bring Weiyang back to the Capital safely. TBY becomes confused as he thought that TBJ will come with them. But TBJ says that he has to settle some matters first with Liu Song.Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 1.29.12 pm.pngMeanwhile, TBY’s servant requests them to stop and rest since they’ve been travelling non-stop. As Weiyang worries about TBJ and wants to find him, TBY tells her that he’s not here and he doesn’t know where he is. Then, arrows start killing TBY’s soldiers and fighting ensues. TBY quickly gets on a horse and brings Weiyang with him as they escape the fighting despite getting injured by an arrow. Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 1.32.03 pm.pngThey then arrive at a dilapidated house but not before sending their horse away to divert the enemy’s attention. They find a secret hideout inside the house to hide away from the soldiers, which was a success. However, we see TBJ getting anxious and shaking as he’s stuck in a dark room which reminded him of his dark childhood where he was locked away and separated from his mother. But then it seems that he has calmed down when Weiyang puts a hand on his shoulder to stop him from making a sound.Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 1.33.46 pm.pngMeanwhile, TBJ arrives at one of the towns and notices that he was too late. The soldiers tell him that the General who was in charge of this town has died and that they don’t have many soldiers left to protect the town.

Then, we see that Weiyang has decided to not abandon TBY since he saved her life. TBY then wakes up and takes the medicine Weiyang gives him. As she was about to leave to get food for them, TBY quickly tells her not to go and grabs her arm. Seems like he’s still traumatised as he doesn’t want to be left alone in this foreign place.

Later, they both dozed off from tiredness but TBY soon wakes up and realised that Weiyang didn’t leave him alone. Then, Weiyang quickly wakes up when she hears Juntao’s voice who has come to save them.Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 1.50.09 pm.pngMeanwhile, TBJ gets ready for battle with his life on the line. He makes a powerful speech to empower his soldiers and give them confidence to beat the Liu Song’s army. They then win the battle and TBJ returns triumphantly. TBJ then says that the enemy will come back soon and that they need to prepare well.Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 1.54.47 pm.pngThen, we see a messenger relaying positive news of TBJ’s victory to TBY. Weiyang overhears TBJ’s location and proceeds to go there despite the dangers. TBY tries to stop her but it seems like she made up her mind, so he let her go.Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 1.56.47 pm.png

Ep 31: We see TBY on his way back to the Capital with his servant when he then thinks about Weiyang and how she cared for him. He then makes a U-turn, probably to go to Weiyang who’s on her way to TBJ. We then see a suspicious figure walking towards Weiyang so they quickly went to hide while Juntao goes to confront him. We then realise that it’s TBY’s servant and TBY then comes into the scene. Looks like they will be going to meet with TBJ together.screen-shot-2016-11-28-at-2-04-08-pmMeanwhile, LMD realised that something must have happened to Weiyang since she’s missing. LMD asks his men (Khan) why haven’t they received any news about Weiyang since they’re been following her. He then came to a conclusion that they have deceived him since they don’t want to save Weiyang. Then one of the men says that Weiyang is safe with TBY and that they have escaped safely.Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 2.08.16 pm.pngOh no! It seems like TBY does have ulterior motives as he sent his servant back to the Capital with a message to CYN. Weiyang however still believes that TBY is only accompanying her because he’s worried about his nephew..

Then TBY’s men comes in saying that they can’t go to TBJ since Hua Tai has been surrounded by the enemy. Weiyang becomes disheartened but then thinks of a way to get in.Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 2.10.47 pm.pngMeanwhile, TBY’s servant returns to the Capital without TBY which worries Changru. He then updates Changru on the situation as Changru becomes agitated that TBY is with Weiyang.Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 2.15.42 pm.pngBack to TBY, he is puzzled as to why Weiyang is catching birds. She tells him that he will know later. She then accidently falls from the tree and TBY quickly catches her before she falls. Weiyang then proceeds to gather the birds.Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 2.18.18 pm.pngMeanwhile, CYN burns TBY’s letter as to hide evidence of their liason and tells TBY’s servant to tell TBY that he won’t disappoint him. CYN then gives orders that 24 people will need to help TBY.

Then, we see Weiyang’s plan in the works. She explains the plan’s success to TBY who looks at her in amazement. Juntao and Baizhi then comes in, happy that their plan was a success. TBY then thinks to himself that Weiyang is not a person to be underestimated and that if he has her, he will be able to accomplish his ambitions.Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 2.21.47 pm.png Because of Weiyang’s plan, she diverted the enemy’s attention and now Hua Tao is no longer surrounded by them. TBJ and his soldiers become curious as to who thought out of this plan. Then, the gate opens and we see Weiyang. TBY and Weiyang then run to each other as they reunite again.Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 2.24.46 pm.pngThen we see the soldiers all praising Weiyang for her plan to divert the enemy. The soldiers and TBJ then toast to each other for their victories before TBY toasts to TBY for protecting Weiyang. Meanwhile, TBJ’s servant is drunk and begins to annoy Juntao. Then, he accidently pulls Juntao into him and they both KISSED which shocks the both of them lol.Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 2.26.23 pm.pngLater, when they’re alone, TBJ keeps on praising Weiyang and thanks her for saving him and their country. He then tells Weiyang that he will arrange for her to go back to the Capital. Weiyang refuses saying that she will wait till reinforcement arrives and that she wants to be with him. He tells her that this place is dangerous but she reminds his of their promise of being together forever. She then gifts him with a charm to wish his protection.Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 2.30.27 pm.pngAfter talking strategies with TBJ and the soldiers, we see TBJ ordering his men to prepare for the upcoming battle. Then Weiyang comes along and gifts him with a protection charm. TBY says, “Shouldn’t you give this to TBJ?”. Weiyang then says that she already gave one to him and that she made these charms herself. He then thanks her and walks away to his room. At first he threw the charm away but then grabs it back, looking at it in more detail, “I want to see whether you protective charm can even protect him (TBJ)”.Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 2.36.54 pm.pngThen its nightfall and it seems like TBJ and his soldiers are going to battle soon. Weiyang comes in but he abruptly tells her that she can’t come. She tells him that she might be of help to him but he says that she’s a girl. She then tells him that he’s underestimating females and that previously he praised her. But he explains that this will be a face-face battle and the situation is different. He also says that he has a treasured object and brings out her protective charm, saying that he will come back safely.Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 2.40.01 pm.pngAfterwards, we see the soldiers with TBJ and TBY out in the field. Then suddenly, an arrow shoots straight at TBJ, injuring him badly. Meanwhile, the Emperor praises TBJ for his actions against Liu Song – looks like he’s no longer mad at his grandson.Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 2.43.32 pm.pngThen, we see that TBJ has returned to the base camp where the soldiers say that TBJ must return to the Capital to get treatment. Weiyang, looking worried, promises that she will bring him safely there. Then we see TBY returning triumphantly as the soldiers shout out praises to him. TBY then comes in to see his nephew, saying that he has arranged for TBJ to be brought back to the Capital. Then, he leaves and tell his servant to tell CYN the route TBJ will take, “He will know what to do”.Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 2.45.48 pm.pngOn their way back to the Capital,  we see assassins killing their guards and ambushing the carriage. Looks like it was a diversion as there was no one but Baizhi (who escapes) inside the carriage. As Baizhi runs away, she gets followed by an assassin who then gets shot by LMD’s arrow. YAY he’s here! Baizhi then brings LMD with her to meet with Weiyang, unknowingly that there’s another group of assassins watching them.Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 2.49.49 pm.pngMeanwhile, we see TBY being brought back to his room after a drinking sesh with the soldiers. When he wakes up a while later, he gets scared because he’s alone in a dark room (remember how he’s traumatised from childhood), and accidently kills a fellow soldier. He then remembers how the doctors could not cure him but Weiyang could…he then calls his servant and orders him to make sure that Weiyang’s life must be protected.Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 2.54.22 pm.pngAfterwards, we see Weiyang bringing TBJ to a hidden cave to rest. She tries to warm him up before hiding up the entrance to the cave. Then LMD and Baizhi comes into the cave, surprising Weiyang. Outside, we see LMD’s men guarding the cave while the assassins get ready to kill them. However, TBY’s servant comes along and tells them not to as he’s here to bring them back to the Capital safely.Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 3.01.21 pm.pngNext, we see them back at the Capital as the Crown Princess hurries to look at her son. She then blames Weiyang for everything bad that has happened to her son and tells her not to get close with TBJ again. Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 3.02.02 pm.pngWeiyang then gets escorted back to her house by TBY’s servant and is met with Changru. She then pries for more information from Weiyang and finds out that TBY has saved Weiyang’s life numerous times. She gets jealous after hearing Weiyang saying good things about TBY but remains composed. Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 3.04.25 pm.pngWeiyang then meets up with the rest of her family as Granny Li and her mother couldn’t contain their happiness and excitement at Weiyang’s return.Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 9.18.45 pm.png

Then, Changru gets upset when she realised that TBY didn’t leave any messages for her and that he has time to protect Weiyang. She then worries that TBY doesn’t have her in his heart. Her servant then suggests Changru to personally go and send a letter to TBY who agrees and says that she will write a letter and personally go to his house so that they can relay the message to TBY.Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 9.22.38 pm.png

Thoughts:

Aren’t we glad that Weiyang is now back home and doesn’t need to be married to the enemy anymore? Although it is sad that the Crown Princess still hates Weiyang for having her son’s love but…she doesn’t even give Weiyang a chance to explain herself and clear her misunderstanding.

Then we have TBY..now this guy is a puzzle. From watching these eps, it seems that he is starting to care for Weiyang especially since he had his servant stop CYN’s assassins from killing Weiyang in ep 31. But then, why is he using Changru? For what purpose? He’s basically deluding her into thinking he has feelings for her and honestly, Changru’s jealousy has no bounds.

  1. Omg this is getting so much more intense tbh. Yikes Chang ru is gonna do something against weiyoung i think and i wish weiyoung would tell TBJ that she saved him from that trap.
    I think this drama is gonna have a sad ending.

  2. Thanks for the recap!

    I missed something. Who is LMD again? I thought he was a foster child, adopted by the Li house hold. Who are those men who always show up when he calls for them? Why do they keep bugging him to leave the palace? Does LMD have royal blood from a far away land?

    1. LMD is Weiyang’s cousin who was adopted by his mother [wife of the third brother (Weiyang’s dad’s younger brother) in the Li Household], but back in the old days, they refer to each other as brother and sister. Those men are from Khan and LMD is actually a Khan Prince who they have been trying to find for years. Hence, they are trying to get LMD to go back with them to Khan.
