Includes spoilers until episode 30.
You gotta love c-dramas and their concentrated broadcasts because two new episodes every evening is certainly something to look forward to after a long day. I wonder whether last night’s episodes of Eternal Love 三生三世十里桃花 were meant for Valentine’s Day because the timing couldn’t have been better.
Interestingly, one of the subway stations in Beijing was even transformed into ten miles of peach blossoms just to celebrate the occasion.
After boatloads of heartaches that left our heroine (Yang Mi) broken and utterly defeated, I was willing for her to jump to her death which is something I have never wished on anyone before.
Part of me wished that she trusted Ye Hua (Mark Chao) a little more or that they communicated a little better but trust is a difficult word when your lover literally gouges out your eyes with his own hands. Did I say that I hate Su Jin (Maggie Huang) to the core? Then again, I hate Tian Jun more.
I was concerned that amnesia the second time around would become another plot device but it seems to be a heaven sent opportunity instead. Bai Qian is freed from the past to become immortal once again and she meets Ye Hua for the first time as herself and as equals (okay, it was one drunken encounter but not any less moving).
I am liking the new balance of power and now that we’ve moved on to the honeymoon phase, I think it is time to bring on an extra large dose of the warm and fuzzies that is so long overdue.
The v-day episode was a sweet surprise and the start of the chase to win over Bai Qian. I highly doubt that she can resist, what with Ye Hua being the ever-attentive husband and little Ah Li being simply adorable. They are even engaged to be married so it’s gotta be smooth sailing from hereon, right?
