Ep 32: The doctor tells the Crown Princess of her son’s ill health and that he will try his best to help TBJ. Changle then arrives and shows the Crown Princess her caring nature towards TBJ as she begs the Crown Princess to let her personally help TBJ. This pleases the Crown Princess who gives permission to Changle. Then both Changle and the Crown Princess go outside to welcome the Emperor who has come to see his grandson. Just as he was about to go in, Weiyang comes begging him to allow her to see TBJ. He allows Weiyang to go in, despite the Crown Princess’ protest, explaining that TBJ was able to survive and be back at home is due to Weiyang. We still see TBJ being unconscious even when the Emperor is here. Weiyang tries to go and help the doctor but the Crown Princess keeps on denying Weiyang permission to get closer to TBJ. After a few attempts, the Crown Princess finally concedes and Weiyang quickly goes to warm up TBJ. Then we see TBJ’s complexion getting better as he’s warming up. The doctor compliments Weiyang and tells the Emperor that it will be better for Weiyang to look after TBJ. The Emperor then asks Weiyang if she’s willing and she quickly agreed.Later, we see both Changle and Weiyang looking after TBJ. Just as Weiyang was about to feed him medicine, Changle stops her and asks her to let her do it. Changle then tells her that she’s in charge and that the Crown Princess will not want Weiyang to do it. Weiyang just gives her the medicine as she doesn’t want to argue with them anymore and tells her that she wishes Changle will genuinely help TBJ regain his health before retiring to her bedchamber. The Crown Princess then arrives and asks Changle where is Weiyang since she’s by herself. Changle then lies by saying that Weiyang said she was tired which annoyed the Crown Princess. The doctor then arrives to check on TBJ’s health and tells them that TBJ has gotten worse, “Didn’t you guys look after him well?”, and that they should summon Weiyang back saying that she has the experience to help him look after TBJ.When the Crown Princess’ servant goes into Weiyang’s bedchamber to wake her up, she finds out that Weiyang is feverish (there’s camera shots of the food, so she probably has food poisoning). Then we see the doctor performing acupuncture on her hand as the Crown Princess and Changle oversee the procedure. Weiyang then wakes up and the Crown Princess immediately asks her to save TBJ who’s gotten worse.
OMG please give the girl a break! She’s clearly unwell yet the Crown Princess only begs Weiyang when she needs her and will then cast her aside once she’s no longer useful…Then we see Weiyang looking after TBJ, feeding him medicine, wiping his face and warming him up. The next day, the doctor tells the Crown Princess that TBJ’s health has turned for the better. YAY! But the next 2 days will be very important so Weiyang says that she will be looking after TBJ these next 2 days. Changle also requests to look after TBJ but was soon dismissed by the Crown Princess after the doctor says that it won’t be too good to have too many people with him.Afterwards, Changle asks her servant, “Did you not give her enough poison? How did she just wake up from one needle?”. The servant quickly kneels saying that she did give her enough poison but the doctor was just too good. Changle quickly tells her servant to get up before someone sees. However, unknowingly to Changle, the Crown Princess heard their whole conversation as did Changru.Meanwhile, Weiyang keeps on wishing for TBJ to wake up quickly from his deep slumber. Her wish was soon granted as he gains consciousness while Weiyang cries out loud. He then comes into realisation that Weiyang has been caring and looking after his these past few days and believed that the person who saved him when he was deeply poison was also Weiyang, not Changle. Weiyang admits to everything which pleases TBJ immensely. She then slowly dozes off and TBJ lightly puts her head on his pillow. He also quickly shushes the servant so as to not wake up Weiyang before kissing Weiyang on her forehead. Then, we see the Crown Princess quietly coming in seeing them together and smiling before leaving them in peace.The next morning, the doctor checks TBJ’s health once again and tells the Crown Princess that he’s already better. TBJ then wakes up and looks around for Weiyang. His mother tells him that she has already sent her home which disappointed TBJ as he thinks that Weiyang was forcefully removed. But his mother says that she only sent Weiyang back to allow her to rest comfortably and that she’s free to come and see TBj anytime she wants.Meanwhile, Changru arrives at TBY’s place and looks around. She smiles as she reminisces the memories she had with TBY but not before seeing the belt she made for TBY on a desk. She then becomes angry that TBY tricked her into believing that he has feelings for her since he did not uphold his promise to always wear the belt. And we see that she blames Weiyang for this.Afterwards, Weiyang comes and see Changru who is disheartened. When TBY comes up in their conversation, Changru subtly hints that TBY is treating Weiyang so well since he sends messages to him (and not to her). Weiyang says that he’s not a bad person and that he’s always wearing Weiyang’s protection charm. This infuriates Changru who quickly leaves.Back in her own room, Changru cries while asking herself, “Am I not as important as Weiyang? I waited for so long…till I can be by your side…”. Then she makes up her mind and says that TBY is hers and that she will be his only woman. Also, while clutching the belt, she exclaims that she won’t let anyone else steal him away from her.Then we see Changru personally giving a letter to TBY’s servant to give to TBY who tells her that she didn’t have to personally come. Changru then fakes a headache while her servant takes this chance to ask TBY’s servant to prepare a room for her to rest for a while. He then says that he will arrange a room when Changru faints.
Next, we see an assassin going into TBY’s room searching for an item before fleeing when people outside shouted “fire fire!”. Meanwhile, Changru’s servant tells Changru that their plan has succeeded since most of the guards are busy fighting with the fire thief. Changru then leaves her room and quickly heads into TBY’s room. She quickly goes to the secret compartment and attains the hidden scroll before heading back to her room. TBY’s servant comes into check on Changru who says that she’s feeling better and will head back home. Back home in her own room, Changru finds out the secret in the scroll and praised her servant for finding a guy to be the fire thief. However, during their conversation, they realised that there was another guy involved who wanted to look for the scroll. Changru believes that the guy must be CYN’s men who wanted to get the scroll. Looks like she guessed right as CYN’s men tells CYN that they were unable to find the scroll. He then throws his stuff in anger since their plan failed.Later, we see Weiyang with Changru together asking her about her health. They then talk about marriage while Changru piques Weiyang’s interest as to who she’s interested in. Changru tells Weiyang that she actually don’t know who it is but he was there when she was young. She remembers that when she was crying she came across a young prince getting hit by the eunuchs for punishment. Looks like they both shared the same pain of being belittled by someone else. Also, when the young prince walked away, he accidently left his item which the young Changru picked up and returned to him. She remembered this item and saw this many years later with TBY whom she believes was the young prince she saw when she was young. Changru then tells Weiyoung that she will find that prince and will marry him at all cost. Then, she silently thinks, “Weiyang, from now on you will be my biggest enemy”.
Ep 33: We see Changru visiting Changle saying that since TBJ’s health is better, Changle’s upcoming marriage with TBJ should be no problem. Changru then pretends to be concerned about Changle’s feelings and then brings up how she must be feeling sad especially since her plan to poison Weiyang and to not let her look after TBJ failed. Changle pretends to not know anything but Changru tells her to stop faking as she heard everything. And that the Crown Princess also heard it as well. Changle becomes suspicious with Changru’s purpose, “Why are you telling me this?”. Changru then tells Changle that they have a common enemy, Li Weiyang.Later, we see Princess running excitingly to LMD who’s glad that he hasn’t left the state yet. LMD then tells her that he thinks of her as a friend which pleases the Princess who tells him that he should promise to not go anywhere.Then, Weiyang goes to her room and Juntao hurriedly comes to greet Weiyang. Weiyang claims that she’s glad to see her again and that she knew that nothing bad would have happened to her. Weiyang then begins to check whether Juntao has any injuries, such a mother hen 🙂 Then she asks Juntao why did she wear a dress? Juntao remains quiet and we see a flashback of her wearing this dress in front of TBJ’s servant who compliments her. However, Weiyang doesn’t give up and keeps on questioning her who tries to avoid the topic.Then we see TBJ and Weiyang walking closely together around the palace. We see Weiyang getting suspicious at how TBJ got injured at Hua Tai, and that there were assassins on their way back to the Capital. She then says how TBY escorted her to Hua Tai, helped TBJ with the battles and is now fighting triumpantly. TBJ quickly stops her from getting deeper since he doesn’t want to suspect his uncle.Next, TBJ gets mothered by his mother who stops his from reading books to give him medicine. She then asks, “Weiyang already left?”. TBJ quickly defends Weiyang and tells her that Weiyang does care for him. His mother says that she might be faking but tells him that she saw Changle wrongly. TBJ then tells his mother that Changle didn’t even save him previously but Weiyang. She then becomes disappointed that Changle has lied to them both. But the mother then tells that disregarding Changle, he still must find a girl with status not Weiyang. TBJ tells his mother that he doesn’t care for these things and that he plans to ask the Emperor to allow him, Weiyang and the Crown Princess to live together away from the Capital. Looks like the mother likes the sound of that but tries to play hard to get hahas.Meanwhile, Weiyang goes to find LMD who was staring at Weiyang’s hairpin. She came to congratulate LMD for getting a promotion but LMD tells her that he didn’t accept it. He then tells her to not worry about him but Weiyang replies, “If I don’t care about you who will?”. He then asks Weiyang, “If I don’t go and don’t come back, will you miss me?”. Weiyang then threatens LMD that if he dares to not come back, she will get TBJ to get his armies to bring him back. LMD ends it with a joke and tells her that he won’t leave her.Later, we see the Princess telling LMD why must he go to Rouran and accept the Emperor’s orders? She begs him to let her beg her father to let him stay at the Capital but LMD tells her that he must go. As he leaves, he accidently drops Weiyang’s hairpin. The Princess picks it up and asks him why does he keep Weiyang’s hairpin with him. She then realises that LMD has always worried about Weiyang instead of her while LMD denies and says that he only cares about her as his sister. The Princess tells him that she hates him and runs away in sadness.Then, we see the Princess crying by herself, upset at LMD. She shouts at her servants to get out despite them trying to get her to eat. Then another servant comes in saying that LMD is requesting to meet with her. The Princess refuses and even stops her servant from suggesting to get LMD punished for upsetting her.
Afterwards, we see the Princess ignoring LMD when they walk past each other. LMD tries to tell the Princess something who then dismisses her servants to let them speak privately. LMD then explains that the hairpin is indeed Weiyang’s but that they only have a brother-sister relationship. He then says that only Weiyang looked after him when his mother passed away. Hence, he only thinks of Weiyang as his close family member. This calms down the Princess who believe his words and says that he is her good friend in this world.Meanwhile, Juntao comes in saying that there’s a message for Weiyang but she doesn’t know who’s the sender. Weiyang reads the message but can’t figure out who would send this to her. The next day, she lets TBJ read the message who says that the person who sent his has motives. Weiyang agrees and says that the person who wrote this letter has the scroll and definitely knows Weiyang’s true identity. Later, we see Chengde and Juntao together. Looks like they are having a sweet moment! Then we see Weiyang teasing Juntao about Chengde who quickly tells Weiyang that there’s nothing going on between them. Next, we see the Crown Princess shouting for help as her legs hurt. Weiyang then asks Juntao to help the Crown Princess back to her palace, but the Crown Princess stops her and says that she wants Weiyang to carry her instead. Weiyang then piggybacked the Crown Princess all the way back to her room before personally pouring tea for her. Then Weiyang proceeded to leave but is quickly stopped as the Crown Princess asks Weiyang to help her massage her legs which still hurts. Looks like Weiyang knows what the Crown Princess is up to while Juntao complains that its not Weiyang’s job. The Crown Princess then tells Weiyang to massage it lighter, then harder, then lighter before complaining that she massaged it too hard. Weiyang then tells the Crown Princess outright that she knows that she’s faking her pain who quickly denies it but then admits it. Weiyang then says that she played along because she’s TBJ’s mother and is an important person to TBJ. This pleases the mother who then still continues to play hard to get.Meanwhile, we see Changle being sad and despondent. Looks like she’s anxious since she’s losing the Crown Princess’ support. CYN then walks in and tells off Changle for not already becoming TBJ’s wife. She then begs her cousin to help her but CYN just says a sentence “明强融多，暗箭难防” – False friends are worse than bitter enemies.Then, CYN’s man asks CYN why does he support TBY and also support Changle’s desire to marry TBJ. He then says that once he gets his hand on the scroll, he won’t be TBY’s underdog anymore.Later, Changle tells her mother of her failings. The mother tries to console her but Changle tells Da Furen that she’s getting tired of this. Then a servant comes in saying that Changru sent this message to Changle. Then we see Changle telling Changru that she can’t do what she’s asking of her. Changru scoffs and tries to persuade Changle. Looks like Changru is revealing her true nature in front of Changle. Remembering her cousin’s earlier words, Changle then agrees to work with Changru to get rid of their common enemy, Weiyang.Later, Changle asks Chunming about her mother’s eating habits. Chunming tells her that Da Furen has been eating less and less and is not awake for long. Seems like there’s not too long to go till Da Furen’s death…
Once alone, Changle tells her mother how she regrets bringing disappointment to her mother but today she made a clear decision [to get rid of Weiyang with Changru].
Meanwhile, we see Changru looking at the hairpin Weiyang got for her in anger as she scarily says Weiyang’s and Changle’s name.Next, we see Weiyang anxiously waiting for another letter from the anonymous person. Weiyang then tells Juntao that this person must want her to be anxious so that she will lose her calmness in order to make careless mistakes. Baizhi then comes in saying that she received a message that TBY is coming back and the Emperor is throwing a banquet for his return.Then, we see the Emperor with the Crown Princess and TBJ happily having a meal together. Soon the Emperor begins to experience headaches which worries the other two. He tells them that he saw a doctor recently and realised that it must be due to old age.Later, the Crown Princess tells TBJ that she’s considering to spend her days happily outside of the palace. This pleases TBJ and his mother continues to say that she only wants her son’s happiness and that she won’t be against him and Weiyang together. Afterwards, Juntao comes running to Weiyang saying that there’s another letter for her. Weiyang quickly opens it to find a map saying that she must go to this place alone in order to get the scroll. Juntao says that she will secretly follow Weiyang but Weiyang tells her that there might be people following their every move. Juntao then asks Weiyang if she will tell TBJ about this. Seems like she’s in a dilemma because if she tells him, he won’t allow her to go alone and if she doesn’t, she will feel guilty since she will be breaking their promise.She then tells Juntao to get her ink and paper. Weiyang then copies the map and instructs Juntao to deliver the map to TBJ only after half a stick of incense burns after she leaves.
I’m so happy that the Crown Princess is liking Weiyang now! Isn’t it adorable that she faked leg pain just to test Weiyang’s patience??
But oh no! Changru and Changle are teaming up together… 😦
