Ep 34: Juntao begins to anxiously wait till half an incense stick burns before giving the map to TBJ. Meanwhile, we see Weiyang trying to find the location. Once she found it, she begins to dig at the ground to find a box. Inside the box, there was a message but then the scene cuts to TBJ who’s on his way to find Weiyang. Then we see Weiyang arriving at the Crown Princess’ place who’s excited to see Weiyang. She quickly asks her servant to grab her box of jewelleries as she wants to gift her future daughter-in-law her personal jewellery. Then Weiyang comes in (but I need to say…she a bit different?).Next, TBJ with Chengde and Juntao arrive at the location of the map but don’t see Weiyang. They then decided to separate in order to find Weiyang who should be here somewhere.Back at the Crown Princess’ place, she presents Weiyang a box of jewelleries. Weiyang really looks like a different person here! Her attitude, facial expression…everything! Then Weiyang tells the Crown Princess that she has something to tell her. Once alone, Weiyang quickly grabs one of her hairpins and stabs the Crown Princess in the chest before quickly fleeing. Then the Crown Princess’ servant comes in and quickly asks for help. The Crown Princess tells her that it was Weiyang’s doing.Afterwards, TBJ comes back home but not before being notified that his mother was stabbed. She then tells TBJ that it was Weiyang’s doing which shocks TBJ who tries to deny everything. The Crown Princess then tells him to quickly leave the Capital so that he can live his days happily, before passing away 😦 They then quickly grab hold of Juntao, so that she won’t flee.Then, we see Weiyang walking before being quickly surrounded by soldiers. She is then brought before TBJ and his dead mother by the soldiers. She seems shock to see the Crown Princess dead and tries to get to her before TBJ shouts STOP! He then asks her whether the hairpin in the Crown Princess’ chest is hers, and Weiyang affirms. He then looks at her with hate as did everyone else, except Juntao who tells her that apparently she killed the Crown Princess. Weiyang quickly says that its not her and that she hasn’t even stepped into the Crown Princess’ residence. However, with so many eyewitnesses and evidence against her, Weiyang does look guilty and TBJ has no choice but to accept it. Weiyang tries to secure her alibi but the letter was missing. She then asks him to go with her to her room where she can give evidence. She then asks Baizhi to open her locked chest only to find a message of instructions to kill the Crown Princess.TBJ then comes into the conclusion that Weiyang was tricking him all along. He then says that she’s the Northern Liang’s Princess, of course she will kill her enemy in order to avenge her family. Weiyang denies everything saying that her feelings for him are true. But he doesn’t believe her…then he brings out the scroll he found and was about to rip it apart. She quickly shouts at him to stop which makes him think that she cares more about the scroll then him. As Juntao defends Weiyang and tells TBJ that Weiyang really cares for him, Weiyang tells her to stop since he’s not going to believe anything she says now. Then soldiers comes in to arrest her for murdering the Crown Princess, and TBJ lets them take her away.In prison, Weiyang sits alone in the dark thinking why isn’t TBJ believing her and how he must be hurt right now since his mother abruptly died in front of him. The princess then comes in with LMD who both says that they don’t believe that it was her. LMD then tells her that he will think of a way to free Weiyang. Weiyang then says that there must be a clue to prove that she’s innocent.Then we see TBJ grieving for his mother. Also, we see him in pain because of the evidence stacked against Weiyang shows that she’s the guilty one.Meanwhile, Changle praise Changru for her plan and asks her when will Changru plan something like this against her. Changru tells her that she wouldn’t dare to go up against the Chiyun family and besides, they have a common enemy.Then CYN asks why would Weiyang murder the Crown Princess, since it’s unlike her character. But CYN’s man says that there’s clear evidence she’s guilty. CYN then says that with Weiyang’s arrest, it’s not good for him since she can say something unfavourable about him. His man then says that the evidence is with TBY so Weiyang doesn’t have any evidence to back up her claims. CYN says that TBY has saved Weiyang before and that now he’s on his way to the Capital, probably going to save Weiyang again. So CYN orders his men to go and assassinate TBY before he arrives here.Next, we see Weiyang retracing her steps trying to find something to clear her name. She then guesses that it might be Changle’s doing to find someone who can create a mask to replicate her face, similar to the previous Weiyang’s true identity situation.
Meanwhile, Changle gets a nightmare of the Crown Princess saying, “It’s you. It’s you who killed me”. Then the Crown Princess grabs her neck while Changle explains that by killing her, she can get TBJ as his relationship with Weiyang will become no more. Changle then wakes up just as soon as she gets stabbed with the hairpin by the Crown Princess. What an amazing dream!Then, we see Changle praying with TBJ for the Crown Princess. Changle says that she’s worried about him and that she will stay by his side forever. TBJ then tells her to leave and then the flame in front of the Crown Princess’ plaque gets bigger for a second which scares Changle since she’s the real murderer.Afterwards, Changru visits TBY’s mother to relay her congratulations on TBY’s success. The mother straightaway tells Changru that she won’t be able to save Weiyang since it was the Emperor who personally ordered Weiyang’s arrest and that no one can save her now. Changru says that she’s not here to plead for Weiyang but to congratulate TBY’s mother. Changru then tells her that she has something to show her about Weiyang. Her servant then hands her the portrait of the Northern Liang’s Princess.Next, a suspicious guard comes in and knocks the other two guards out. He grabs the keys and opens Weiyang’s cell. He then gets out his dagger, ready to stab Weiyang but Weiyang got to him instead and proceeded to hit him with sheath. Oh it was CYN who sent him. Weiyang then says that she can’t die and that there’s so much stuff for her to do. She then proceeded to dress herself in the dead man’s clothes before setting her prison cell on fire. As she escapes, LMD helps her hide from the guards who realise that Weiyang was not in her cell. She tells LMD that she must see the Emperor to plea her case, but LMD tells her that she’s just walking to her death. He then says that he has evidence of her whereabouts and got a witness account. She then asks LMD to turn her in to the guards so that she can meet with the Emperor.
The Emperor gets furious at Weiyang for her crimes but Weiyang quickly tells him that she has an alibi to clear her from her crimes. The Emperor doesn’t believe her since there were so many servants who saw her at the Crown Princess’ residence but Weiyang tells him that someone disguised themself as her. She then hands him the evidence for her alibi to show that she wasn’t at the Crown Princess’ place at that time of her death. The Emperor tells her that he will send his men to investigate her alibi but even then she can’t escape death since she fled from her cell. The Emperor then asks his men to reveal her left arm which shows her birthmark. He then throws the Northern Liang’s Princess’ portrait at her, showing that he knows her true identity. Weiyang then admits that she is the Northern Liang’s Princess and explains that her father was framed by CYN. She says that she has evidence of CYN’s treachery and that it is now in TBJ’s hands. TBJ then arrives and hands his grandfather the scroll. The Emperor then dismisses TBJ since he’s still grieving for his mother. Weiyang then asks the Emperor to clear her father’s name and to bring justice to her family. But the Emperor refuses saying that he won’t kill his General (aka CYN) just for a girl but he will promise that her people will be able to live and become his people. Also, he tells Weiyang that since she’s the Northern Liang’s Princess, he won’t accept her as TBJ’s wife.Later, TBJ tells Chengde to investigate every single place carefully. Chengde tells TBJ that even he believes its not Weiyang’s doing but since the Crown Princess personally said that it was Weiyang, he could not refute it. TBJ tells Chengde that he doesn’t believe that Weiyang will trick him so Chengde quickly goes to follow the order.Meanwhile, Changru runs after LMD to ask about Weiyang’s wellbeing. LMD then tells her to not worry and that this case will probably have a new turnaround. Oh no! Now she’s going to plan something else against Weiyang!Later, believing he’s about to get promoted, we see his arrogant face ready to attain a new title. However, he was ordered to remove the ‘Tiger’ character from his name and to temporarily take over the military division at 幽州 (You State). This shocks everyone as he’s actually demoted being demoted.Weiyang then gets news of CYN being canonised as the protector of the country but that he was ordered to go to the You State for duty and that he had to hand over the tiger character. This means that CYN won’t have his own army now. Then LMD tells Baizhi that he has found evidence to prove Weiyang’s innocence and that after they find the real assassin, Weiyang will be freed. Baizhi then tells LMD that Juntao has been missing after hearing a wind sound about protecting the country.
Next, we see Changru delicately painting a rock. Her servant then comes in saying that Juntao has left after receiving a message from CYN, as predicted by Changru. Changru then says that if Juntao makes a big deal about Weiyang’s arrest then Weiyang will be even more in danger. As she says this, she draws the bird being trapped in a cage.Meanwhile, CYN tells his family members that he has been assigned to the You State for duty. Da Furen tells him that the Emperor did this in order to cut off his military power. CYN blames Weiyang for this as now the Emperor must know of his treachery since she’s the Northern Liang’s Princess. This family really knows how to blame Weiyang for everything.. As CYN leaves for his new post, his assassin (red) tells him to bring her with him. He refuses saying that he has an important task for her to do; protect his family. On his way, his soldiers get caught in a trap and were quickly killed by assassins. Then hundreds of arrows come flying towards CYN who remains composed and survives because he was secretly wearing a metal vest. Then assassins runs towards CYN who fights them off with his bare fists. However, there were too many of them as some of them grabbed a tree and pushed it against CYN. But he then pushes them away before fleeing the scene.We see CYN running towards a boat where Juntao is. Once alone in the middle of the river, Juntao stops the boat and tries to kill CYN to avenge her father and her masters. But they both get seriously injured and pushed each other into the water while the assassins runs away to report the situation to their master.Looks like it was the Emperor who ordered the assassins to murder CYN as they report to him that it was Weiyang’s bodyguard who also tried to kill CYN. Now the Emperor believes that Weiyang went against her word and is not giving up on revenge. His servant then says that this might be good as he now has an excuse to get rid of Weiyang.Meanwhile, LMD tells Weiyang that Juntao is missing. Weiyang doesn’t blame LMD and says that Juntao is just doing what she wants to do as well. Then an order comes from the Emperor saying that she will be executed in 3 days at noon. When Weiyang asks the Emperor’s men what happened to Juntao, he says that she has already died. LMD doesn’t accept this and tries to plea for Weiyang’s innocence. Weiyang doesn’t mind since her revenge against CYN is done and he’s dead. Weiyang then asks LMD to go and find Juntao as she won’t die so easily. LMD promises to find her and that he won’t allow Weiyang to die.Next, LMD barges into TBJ’s residence to blame him for not doing anything for Weiyang. He then tells TBJ that the Emperor has decided to execute Weiyang in 3 days. He then begs TBJ to save Weiyang since he’s the only one who can save her now. Then Changle comes in to interrupt to say that Weiyang is guilty for murdering the Crown Princess and her cousin. However, TBJ is still in a difficult situation since evidence points out that the person he loved the most killed his mother. TBJ then runs out somewhere while Changle and his men shout for him.Looks like TBJ ran straight to the Emperor to say that the person who killed CYN is Juntao not Weiyang. The Emperor then says that Weiyang was the one who killed his mother. TBJ replies that because of his mother’s death, his head has been muddled but in his heart, he knows that Weiyang is not that type of person and that the assassin has to be someone else. The Emperor refuses and says that if he says she’s guilty then she’s guilty, because he’s the Emperor.Afterwards, we see Weiyang alone in the dark cell again thinking about her biological family and saying that she will be with them soon. But she’s only sad that she won’t be able to be with TBJ anymore as she reminisces her memories with him. She then wishes that TBJ won’t hate her anymore and that she hope she can see him one more time before she leaves this world. Then TBJ comes in and dismisses her guards. He sees her writing his name on the table and crying at his name before leaving the prison.
Poor Weiyang!!! Why is she always framed and how can Changle bear to murder the Crown Princess just because she wants to be with TBJ? I swear…jealousy is a scary emotion.
