I’m working on the other recap/review but the Episode 90 trailer came out and I am so unimpressed with the Emperor. I am so furious. It has nothing to do with 86-89 so I’m going to cover this trailer first. I can’t even. I’m so mad already. The Emperor isn’t even my husband.
So from what it looks like, Ming Yue, a girl that looks around 14 is introduced into the picture because Empress Wu wants her to be Tai Zi Fei, the wife of the future Crown Prince.
BUT NOPE her target is the Emperor, not the Crown Prince. Come on, seriously? Finding someone that’s 40 years older than you, just so he can fulfill your wishes better? #unimpressed
And, and, the Emperor has taken a great liking to her.
They have so much fun together, apparently in the trailer he’s in nearly tears.
So it just hit me. This is how it is. Patriarchy. Mei Niang has done so much for him, within the palace courts politically, raise two children, and physically take care of him as a wife. And it’s perfectly reasonable for him to find someone that’s 40 years younger and forget about Mei Niang after all she’s done. Obviously he’s not going to do that, we know because, history. But he is treating this girl with strange favouritism. And the way he looked at her when she initially walked into the room…
UGH. I’m ranting like a neurotic jealous girlfriend but it’s true. I hope Mei Niang gets rid of her soon. I know this is a Chinese historical drama but this is ruining my OTP need.

Isn’t this similar to li shi min meeting mei niang? He was old and she was 14? Only difference was he didn’t have a living, lovely wife.
And yes I’m angry too lol I’m jealous on mei niang behalf. Men eh?!
I know!!! And Mei Niang protects him so much by dealing with his political sh*t while he goes to drink, tries out medicine for him, and more. I guess this is how it is to be an Emperor and Empress, but I can’t get over how unfair it is for Mei Niang, after she’s given so much.
From history, every emperor is quite mad about women, they have a lot.
But Li Zhi is not clever and should respect Mei Niang so I am quite mad too.
Now is episode 90, when will this series end?
Di Renjie be still not introduced yet, he is the important one.
I googled it… it says that it will have 96 episodes! I am not sure the validity of this information though 🙂
Thanks for info.
I still wait for your recap ep30-59.
May the force be with you
Emperor makes Ming yue his later on. I saw 93 trailer. Oh my god, why?!!!!! Sure emperor did a lot for mei niang but this?!!! I can’t watch this, it’s ruining my OTP!
I KNOW!!!!!11!! I’m so mad! I’m writing about it now. I can’t believe through so much, he still suspects her, and treats her like this! and it’s her niece, no less!
In history this is 敏月 right? 賀蘭敏之?
Hi, may I ask where you can watch the uncut Episodes? I can only find the cut episodes online. So there is not 96 episode but 75. Which is annoying the story makes me confused as they removed scene with character and mixed scene too. Thanks for the info!
