Firstly, we see Weiyang’s mother helping the servants to pack Weiyang’s clothes for a hunting expedition, as she worriedly makes sure that her daughter has enough clothes to keep her warm and plenty to change into. Then we see TBJ, in a bad mood, walking with his servant. To cheer TBJ up, the servant says “I’ll tell you good news, Weiyang is going to come along to this hunting trip”. That surely cheered TBJ up. Straightaway, the princess comes and asks whether LMD will go as well. TBJ then teased her about LMD which made her flustered and quickly changed the subject.Afterwards, we see the princess begging for her father’s (the Emperor) permission to let her join the hunting expedition. The father initially refuses as its a dangerous place but after the princess throws a mini tantrum, he then concedes and lets her go.Then, we see everyone outside the palace as they’re finally on their hunting expedition. TBY calls out to Weiyang who then greets the prince. TBY then casually says that he might ask the Emperor for her hand in marriage who will probably agree to it, even if Weiyang doesn’t want to marry him.Meanwhile, we see Changle and Changru chatting. We see Changru acting like a perfect sister who was worried about Changle’s wellbeing when she was sent to the countryside. Changle wasn’t fooled and tries to call out her act. Soon, we have a group of girls walking past Changle, gossiping about her situation. Changle became frustrated while Changru smirks. Then, Changle was then sent to see the Crown Princess.Once Changle left, Changru’s maid praises Changru for planning this as the Crown Princess will never allow her son to associate with Changle if her reputation gets ruined. Then, TBY comes in sarcastingly clapping after hearing their conversation.Afterwards, we see the Crown Princess saying to her servant that if the gossips were true, Changle will never become her daughter-in-law. Then Changle arrives, greeting the Crown Princess who states that Changle’s complexion has worsened. Changle explains that it was due to looking after her ill mother. The Crown Princess then says that that wasn’t what she heard, as apparently Changle was unfilial to her father and hence was sent to the countryside. Changle quickly dismisses the gossip saying that she was looking after her mother the whole time.
The Crown Princess soon dismiss the topic and asks about her mother. Changle says that her mother’s health has been worsening due to Weiyang. She then says that after her argument with Weiyang she accidently hurt her father and faked gasped saying that that must be what the rumours were about. The Crown Princess then asks whether it was Weiyang’s fault but Changle quickly denies saying that she wouldn’t hurt her because they’re sisters (SUCH FAKENESS!). Now the Crown Princess believes her and suspects Weiyang.Meanwhile, we see TBY scolding Changru for her actions. Changru defends herself saying that it was to help him attain his wish, this peaks his interest. As Changru continues talking, she says that she will help him with his ambitions and that she will die for him. As TBY continues to show his approval, Changru smiles with glee.Then, we see Changle walking with happiness as she has the Crown Princess on her side. The older prince quickly goes to her and asks what happened to her. Changle signals her maid to talk who says that Weiyang has been bullying Changle and implores the prince to help Changle release her anger. The Prince agrees but only if Changle marries him but Changle quickly walks away saying that she’s not suitable. But the Prince remains unfazed, saying that he will ask her father for her hand in marriage.Meanwhile, we see TBJ calling out to Weiyang before running to her and putting on a bracelet on her wrist. Weiyang tries to flee saying that it won’t be good for anyone to see this in public. He quickly stops her and tells her to be careful around here. (AWWWWW) Weiyang also tells him to be careful which makes him happy, and makes my heart flutter LOL.Then, we see Juntao meeting with her father who is disguised as a soldier. Looks like this meeting is a secret from Weiyang as he tells Juntao to make sure Weiyang doesn’t go anywhere by herself since its dangerous.Meanwhile, we see Weiyang being summoned by the Crown Princess. Once Weiyang arrived, the Crown Princess then begins to complain to Weiyang about her status and how she isn’t suited for her son. Weiyang then asserts that there’s no relationship between TBJ and her, but the Crown Princess doesn’t believe her, “TBJ’s wife can never be you”. Weiyang then leaves but not before she’s spotted by TBJ who smiles and runs at her. Weiyang quickly leaves which puzzles TBJ because she seemed happier with him earlier. So he quickly went to ask his mother who makes her hatred towards Weiyang known.Afterwards, we see Juntao’s father suspiciously going around tents but doesn’t know that he’s being followed by CYN’s men. CYN’s man then relays what he knows to CYN who then asks if he heard the conversation between Juntao and her father. However, CYN’s man didn’t dare to venture close to eavesdrop but says that he heard the word “Princess”.The next day, we see Weiyang coming out of her tent dressed in armoury – looks like she’s hunting! After Weiyang shoots her first catch of the day, we see CYN grabbing his bow and arrow, ready to aim it at Weiyang. However, Weiyang already moved away from her position so he failed. CYN tries again even when TBY is with Weiyang, but TBY saves her as he heard the sound of the arrow coming at them. Looks like TBY knows who wants to kill her! Then we see TBJ secretly getting more arrows from his servant before rushing off to hunt. He then shoots an arroow, but scares Changle who falls down to the ground. He then goes to her saying that she should leave this place as its too dangerous and was about to leave her until she faked her pain, “I can’t get up”. Being a gentleman, he grabs an arrow for her to hold to get her up and proceeded to help her get on the horse.Weiyang then comes along and sees them together on the horse. Changle then fakes a fall to make him hold her harder, while Weiyang sees this. Weiyang quickly leaves with TBJ calling and running after her while instructing his servant to bring Changle back to safety. hahas! But, Changle then throws herself on the floor to grab his attention and says “Don’t ignore me just to chase after Weiyang”. Seeing as Weiyang is far away and he can’t catch up to her, he tells Changle that he already has someone in his heart and that he has no feelings for Changle. While this was happening, the older prince was watching in fury but quickly leaves.Meanwhile, Weiyang hunts in anger and impulsively shoots her arrow. TBJ catches up to her and holds onto her reins in order to not let her run away. He quickly explains that he doesn’t have any relationship with Changle but Weiyang just remains composed saying that its not her business. TBJ then points out that she’s definitely angry with him but Weiyang denies. She hits his hand with her bow but we see her being worried at him being hurt. TBJ still doesn’t let go saying that she’s still angry with him and tries to act cute. LMD then interrupts then, saving Weiyang from this situation who then makes her escape.Looks like the hunting is over as Weiyang returns back to her room but then realises that she’s missing something. Juntao peeks and sees the scrolls Weiyang was searching for before leaving Baizhi outside.We see Juntao meeting her father who tells him that Weiyang will never let go of her revenge. The father then plans to kill CYN himself so that Weiyang won’t have to do it and get in trouble. Juntao tells her father that it will be impossible as he has guards and he’s strong. Looks like the father has something up his sleeve as he tells his daughter to rest early and to remember to protect Weiyang at all cost.Afterwards, dressed in black, Juntao’s father sneaks into CYN’s tent. He first throws a small dagger at CYN before getting into a close sword fight with him. Juntao’s father’s mask was quickly removed and CYN’s soldiers immediately surround him. Then they engaged in another sword fight and unfortunately the father failed and was promptly tortured. CYN finds a tattoo on his body which shows that Juntao’s father was from Northern Liang. CYN then interrogates Juntao’s father for information about the Princess. However, he remains silent while CYN realises that Weiyang is not what she seems, and is the Princess of Northern Liang. He then orders his guards to torture Juntao’s father till he speaks.
Ep 25: We see Weiyang getting ready for another hunting day as Baizhi tells her that today is an important day and that she should be careful not to make a mistake. Juntao then hands Weiyang a small bottle of antidote as she won’t always be by Weiyang’s side protecting her.Next, we see a group of soldiers laying a trap as ordered by the older prince. Looks like this trap is for TBJ – why so evil?!?!?!Then, we see the Emperor compliment CYN for killing the most in the hunt. Then TBJ comes with a huge cart of dead animals saying that Weiyang hunted them and asked the Emperor’s servant to count them as they’re the ones . Looks like Weiyang was unaware of this fact (remember how TBJ got extra arrows from his servant in the previous ep?). The servant then tells the Emperor that Weiyang killed the most. The older prince says that TBJ is cheating if he passes of his killed animals to Weiyang but TBJ provides evidence by saying that the arrows that shot the birds are Weiyang’s as it has her name on it.
Looks like TBJ is helping Weiyang to get in the Emperor’s good graces so that she will have the opportunity to request something from the Emperor.Meanwhile, we see Changle throwing a tantrum out in the woods thinking about TBJ’s words about how he doesn’t have her in his heart. Her servant nearly falls into a trap set by the older prince but was quickly saved by Changle. Curiously, Changle observes the trap and sees snakes at the bootom. As her servant complains that they should leave, Changle quickly orders her servant to hide the trap as she plans to lure Weiyang into this trap.Then, we see someone knock out Baizhi before seeing TBJ and the older prince hunting. The older prince tells TBJ to stop tricking the Emperor as he finds Weiyang’s arrows with TBJ. He then says that he will help TBJ to find the arctic fox before leading TBJ to the trap.Meantime, we see TBY hunting for the arctic fox as LMD watches him. As TBY makes a shot, LMD quickly interrupts it, ruining TBY’s hunt. Just as TBY was about to catch LMD, the princess (still disguised as a prince) quickly comes and saves him and diverts TBY’s attention from LMD. Later, when the princess gets attacked by a hawk, LMD tries to help her and in the midst of helping her, finds out that that she was a girl the whole time. The princess then faints from seeing her blood and LMD has no choice but to piggyback her back to camp.Meanwhile, we see TBJ and the older prince still on the hunt for the arctic fox. The older prince keeps trying to lure TBJ to his trap and then suggests that they separate to find the arctic fox. TBJ agrees and goes along a road where the trap is laid.
TBJ’s servant tells TBJ that it’s dangerous and to be careful, “You are going to lose your life because of Weiyang”, hahas. Someone then releases the arctic fox who then lures TBJ to the trap. As TBJ runs through a trigger, numerous arrows shot towards him but he escapes them unscathed. Unfortunately, he falls into the trap where snakes come out to him. He quickly fights the snakes and kills them all but not before getting bitten by one of them.Then we see the Older Prince’s men quickly laying the trap again, with TBJ underneath so that no one will know he’s there.Afterwards, we see everyone except TBJ gathering before the Emperor. The Emperor’s servant tells the Emperor that Weiyang has killed the most out of everyone. The Emperor then praises Weiyang and says that she can request something from him since she’s the winner, “Any request is fine and I can promise you that”. As Weiyang gets ready to speak of her request, we see CYN’s man getting ready to shoot her. Weiyang quickly says that she requests the Emperor to graciously grant her pardon in the future if she does anything wrong as well as not punishing her family members. The Emperor accepts her request as Weiyang says that she hopes the Emperor won’t contradict his words later. The Emperor chuckles saying that if he said it, he will do it.
Then Weiyang tells the Emperor that she has something to report to him. As she proceeds to get the scroll out from behind her armour, CYN’s man gets ready to shoot at her. But she was suddenly interrupted as TBJ’s servant tells the Emperor that TBJ is missing. The Emperor then quickly orders everyone to find his grandson.As Weiyang was about to leave to search for TBJ, Juntao quickly runs out to Weiyang telling her that she needn’t do this. Weiyang refuses saying that he saved her life numerous times so she shouldn’t not do anything. We also see the Crown Princess weeps as she shouts out that her son must come back safely.
Afterwards, we see soldiers and Weiyang searching for TBJ. Then one of the soldiers on horseback throws an item behind Weiyang who notices it and went to get it. Looks like its from Changle who says that Weiyang must go to this place or else Baizhi will die. Weiyang then suspects that TBJ’s disappearance and Baizhi’s kidnapping is related, so she decided to look for Baizhi in order to get news of TBJ.Then we see Juntao looking for Weiyang who is following the directions on a map. As Weiyang continues walking, she spots Baizhi (who is just Changle’s servant posing as Baizhi) and runs towards her. As Changle watches, Weiyang looks at Baizhi suspiciously. Then Changle’s guard flicks a rock at Weiyang which makes her loses her stance and falls straight into the trap. Changle praises her guard then tells her servant to go down and check whether Weiyang has died. The servant goes down and quickly nudges Weiyang’s foot without looking back. She then quickly climbs up…If only she looked at Weiyang, then she could see TBJ as well! As the servant tells Changle that Weiyang is dead, she then hides the trap so that no one else will notice. Changle smirks and then leaves but not before accidently dropping one of her hairpins to the ground. Changle also instructed her maid to hide the footprints and block the entry so that no one else can find Weiyang’s dead body…so cruel!Then Weiyang regains her consciousness and spots TBJ next to her. When she sees the dead snakes, she realised that he has been bitten and thus poisoned. Weiyang then quickly sucks out the poison and gives TBJ the antidote to save him. Of course, since he’s unconscious, she had to give the pill to him using mouth-mouth. She then faints on his chest before wishing that he lives.Next, we see Baizhi waking up from being knocked unconscious. She then becomes worried seeing that Weiyang and Juntao are not back yet.Meanwhile, Juntao spots the rocks Weiyang made to make an arrow to show where she went before she fell down the trap. As she shouts Weiyang’s name, Weiyang was clueless because she already lost consciousness.Then we see CYN worried about the scroll Weiyang was about to reveal to the Emperor. He then orders his servant to find her in order to find the scroll.Next, we see TBY with her servant asserting his assumptions that TBJ’s disappearance is because of the older prince. But TBY is not going to do anything about it.
Meanwhile, we see that the princess has returned back to her camp thanks to LMD. The princess’ servant was surprised that her identity has been revealed. As she tried to get more information out of LMD, he quickly leaves saying that she can ask her princess instead.Then Weiyang soon wakes up as TBJ coughs. However, he does not gain consciousness which worries Weiyang especially since he seems feverish. We see her removing his armour and fanning him to cool his temperature down. Then, TBJ complains of being cold and Weiyang then tries to warm him up by removing her cape. Meanwhile, Juntao, Baizhi and LMD look for Weiyang together before they split up. LMD notices the broken roots and realised that someone purposely planted a barrier there. He goes through the bushes and finds Weiyang’s footprints.Meanwhile, Changle’s servant discovers that Changle is missing a hair pin. Changle quickly runs out to find it.Then, we see LMD following the footprints and shouts out Weiyang’s name. Weiyang hears LMD’s voice and shouts for help. He then discovers the trap and quickly goes to save Weiyang. Weiyang proceeds to go up first while Changle watches her. She then hears that TBJ is trapped underneath – I think I know where this is heading lol.
As with a lot of other dramas, Changle is probably going to fake being TBJ’s hero and maybe this is how she will become his wife? But seriously…how can she be so ok with wanting someone else dead? Honestly…if this happens, I’m not going to enjoy watching the next ep.
