Female Prime Minister: Legend of Lu Zhen Episode 35 Recap


Okay, so this episode builds up to the next two, which happen to be very good. That being said, there is slight character movement as one of our evil people is slowly learning to MOVE ON with her life. Yes ladies and gentlemen, the Royal Concubine is finally, finally developing some semblance of affection toward the Emperor.  Also, Elizaphantrex, you are the best for being my editor. I would never replace you when you leave for the East Coast (US) in the coming weeks.

That being said, I’m currently looking for a new editor.

Elizaphantrex: >= l]

Female Prime Minister: Legend of Lu Zhen Episode 34 Recap


So, after some teasing and good advice from my dear Elizaphantrex, who incidentally will be moving far far away from me in a week (I will write you a proper goodbye on actual paper… and then forget to mail it to you, trust me, my intention was good, the execution will suck), I have decided to pick up where I left off recap wise. I am emotionally and mentally ready to be at the reins of this run away horse again.

Elizaphantrex: Awwww, you gave me the feels. I’ll be home for Christmas. Besides, the East Coast is only a facetime away! Although, I’m foreseeing the time difference may be problematic, since we already do our best work by dwindling candlelight. And dwindling candlelight on the West Coast is early morning on the East.

Also: This post was a lot longer. But because wordpress deleted EVERYTHING I wrote…. all two episodes of it… and I’ve tried to restore it to no avail, I’ll just post the episode I wrote again. I apologize to all my readers, I know how frustrating it can be to wait  for a new post,  and I promise that I’ll try to be more punctual.

Lu Zhen is like crack. It has some great moments and then terrible ones, you get a hit of the good stuff and it can last you until the next one, most of the time. Dear show, don’t make people wait too long. But in other news – this is the cutest picture ever.

Here is a completely gratuitous picture of Chen Xiao. If you watch any of the episodes from 20 to 30, watch episode 25. Dear Elizaphantrex, I promise that it gets better after episode 3o. But I am grateful for all your help, without you I would have never gotten this far, grammatically.

Female Prime Minister: Legend of Lu Zhen Episode 30 Recap

Screen Shot 2013-07-23 at 1.13.32 AM

It takes Dan Niang to knock some sense into a despondent Lu Zhen. Sometimes I think the side characters have the hardest job in this show. They have to herd the main character to the right conclusions. I raise my glass to Dan Niang, without you, this show might have stretched to 85 episodes, 70 of which focus on the numerous misunderstandings between Gao Zhan and Lu Zhen.

*Side note: Please welcome back my editor, Elizaphantrex!
