Nevertheless, Xin Yue Hu surprises with a sudden bout of altruism and instead, gives away every ounce of his energy until he disintegrates in a swift but heartfelt farewell among the unlikely brothers.
Realizing that the woman he loved had stopped loving him long ago, an enraged Baili Han deals a fatal blow to Bin Yi, leaving Fu Er devastated while he exclaims, “how come, when he was alive you didn’t care, now that he is dead, he’s important?”
To add insult to injury, Baili Han comes clean that the day Fu Er turned against Su Mo was a result of his scheming.
While I feel for Fu Er, I do think that she takes the cake for most hated character so her comeuppance is welcome, more so because Baili Han is right in rubbing it in that her path to evilness would not have been so had she not been such a willing participant.
More deaths followed as Shangguan Jin (Kenny Kwan) and Ah Su (Liu Chang De) also die in the hands of Baili Han. Chi Yu might have too if not for Su Mo who makes a wish to rid the bad, destroying Baili Han in the process.
Then comes the clean slate wherein everybody survives.
Nonetheless, Classic of Mountains and Seas has a good concept and at the heart of the adventure are its endearing ensemble of characters. I could watch Team Phoenix just for their tireless banter and their back stories while tragic, make good TV.
Yet it is so far from perfect. In fact, I was throwing chairs against the wall when Chi Yu died and Xin Yue Hu appeared because it was such a ludicrous change that came just when the sweet moments between real-life couple Gu Li Na Zha and Zhang Han were getting good but I grew accustomed to the idea, thanks for the most part to a mellowed down Xin Yue Hu who had redeeming qualities of his own.
As for Su Mo’s wish for world peace, it negates the events of the entire series, which is a reality that I neither loved nor hated though I suppose it’s better that everyone is alive than dead, putting a bittersweet finality to the saga where only Su Mo and Chi Yu retain their memories so we can take consolation in the fact that they’ll always have each other.
But whatever became of Bin Yi, the scroll lady, her loyal wolf boy and even the face-stealing prick?

Zhang Han died in this drama? hmmm….I just reach episode 6 and when heard this, I feel that I don't watch it anymore 🙁 but I should I watch it for Zhang Han.
Since this whole post is a spoiler I'll just type away:) Chi Yu dies but he becomes Xin Yue Hu, still played by Zhang Han. And at the end everyone kind of lives again so I guess it's a happy ending.
I'm a bit confused at the ending. Did they re-born or just kind of medicine that make Mo Er live in her dream forever? Her last word made me confused.
Hi Malyza – From what I understand, everyone is alive again in a world where there is no red phoenix and green dragon. And Su Mo is the only one who remembers what happened plus Chi Yu too maybe because he didn't die before Su Mo made the wish.
Just curious what was her last word that made it confusing coz i can't remember 🙂
Is su mo and xin yu hue end up as a couple at last?
Nope Su Mo ends up with Chi Yu. Xin Yue Hu is just alone I think but since he forgot the past I think he is happy.
This is her word at the ending "The old blood lineage will sleep for a long time within body, no matter in which world as long as you can be next to the one you love, the one you trust then it will forever remain asleep" I don't understand. Anyway I'm happy that they make Xin Yue Hu has his only life. I really enjoyed watching this drama, most of people said Su Mo's acting is bad but still good for me, maybe I'm gonna watch it again one day cuz I really like Chi Yu and Su Mo, i'm a fan of Zhang Han anyway 🙂
You do realize that Heart Moon Fox at the end does have his memories from before Su Mo made her wish right? he is stood there watching her leave at the end, he smiles as if to thank her.
So the only ones who remember are Su Mo, Chi Yu and Xin Yue Hu (heart moon Fox).
And because they where brothers but Chi Yu never knew his other brother existed when his young brother is meantioned he meant Heart Moon Fox.
As for the very ending, the words she said were simple saying, she gave up everything she loved so that peace could rule and kindness would win over evil. And in the end it did.
