Startling by Each Step Episode 31

Description: Episodes:

Zhang Xiao, a contemporary, ethnically Han Chinese young woman from the 21st century, accidentally travels back in time to the Qing Dynasty period during the reign of Kangxi Emperor after experiencing a deadly combination of traffic collision and electrocution, resulting her somehow reliving the life of one of her previous incarnations and forcing her to assumes the identity belongs to her past avatar: Maertai Rexi, teenage daughter of a Manchu nobleman, who also had a near-fatal incident in her own time which Zhang awakes from.

Being stranded in the past, in the body of a centuries earlier incarnation of herself, and believe by many of Maertai’s family and friends that the sudden change of her behavior and memory loss is resulted of her head injury, Zhang Xiao awares that there will be a dangerous power struggle known to history between the scheming princes for the throne, which will results Aisin-Gioro Yinzhen to succeed as the Yongzheng Emperor after his father’s death. Zhang Xiao tries to change the future outcomes for the better, hoping to prevents any casualty as written in the future without interfering a man’s destiny, while trying to find a way to return to her time period. However, Zhang ultimately realizes that, not only she fails to alter the course of the approaching events, but also, under a predestination paradox, she is fated to become an instigator of the tragedy she tries to prevent resulted by her actions in the past and the princess’ romantic affections towards her.

  • jj22

    太监在 06:10 时用了‘立马’ 这个词。。。这词从古代就有了啊?!

    How come their book was bind by metal? Thought they don’t have the technology yet…

    I don think Ruoxi care too much for everyone is wrong. In her position, all is her best buddies from young and 8 is the guy she love and 8 have done so much for her, 10, 13, 14 also did so much for her. Given all this, Can she not Care for everyone?
    If u all was to be in this situation and knowing wat will happen to them, i think sure will also do something to stop it from happening.
    She once love 8 n couldnt be with him all because he is not willing to give up fighting,  no matter what in her heart there is still care. 4 was nice to her, he wasn’t wrong to protect her but he did things too extreme that make her feel suffocated.
    She is a “modern” person that go back to the past suddenly. We were brought up knowing that Man should just have 1 woman, how can expect that its normal to have so many woman sharing ur man?
    if in today world, ur man fall for another woman, i believe alot of ppl will nv say its ok already.

  • 其实上若曦真的管太多了! 这是因为她知道未来会发生什么事情。她想阻止悲剧但到头来还是不能…. 说要改变历史就能吗?毕竟已经是历史,她要改变也不能。若曦爱每一个人,尤其是四爷(她爱人),所以她想救每一个人但是她无能为力啊!如今,她只能眼睁睁的看着她所爱的人受到伤害。真悲哀!

  • guest

    從頭到尾都是若熙自己莫名其妙!

  • 好想念以前的四爺, 那個還沒有當皇上的四爺.

  • Dianesieh

    安得與君相決絕, 一句一傷,多言多傷!

    最是無情帝王家, 但願長醉不復醒, 相惜方可相守!還未分別,就已想念

    贏得了天下輸了她,樹欲靜而風不止.

    九王奪嫡 絕對的悲情時代
    君生我未生,我生君已老
    人生只若初見
    洵有情兮,而無望兮
    花落人亡餘空恨
    曾經的恩怨情仇,在人生的暮年終究都化作了嘴角一抹淡淡的淺笑
    人生無常,人世無奈,孰是孰非又有幾人能說清?

    Well, the whole problem is that Ruoxi cannot change history regardless of what she knows. If she could change history then that would alter everything afterwards and possibly make everything worse. Even if the 8th prince became the king or the 14th, there`s no guarantee that they would have been good and righteous kings. Like the 13th prince says, everything changes after a person becomes the king.

  • 宫锁心玉  is definitely different from this story.. the storyline of her coming over to this time era is different that Bu Bu Jing Xin.. but both are equally great shows.. ^___^

  • Vicky

    Yup. I also don’t understand why RX couldn’t steer events to minimize, well, at least her pain. She’s supposed to be the luckiest girl in the world:

    She survived the freak accident she had in her modern time, other people could’ve been crippled or disabled by that kind of accident, yet her body & mind remained intact.
    When she travelled time to the past, she turned out to be a gege, much better than just a poor commoner or worse – a convict or slave.
    With her knowledge of history & modern education that none else had, she could outsmart the others. She’s lucky to have a caring sister & could befriend many of the princes.
    Yet with all this lucks, her life’s still full of doom & gloom. Many steps she’d taken, she chose them herself & given her knowledge, she should’ve known the consequences.
    Happiness is not a gift nor fated, it’s a state of mind. I dont want to be mean, but I think RX kept focusing of what she wanted to see/have but couldn’t, and thus she ‘chose’ to be unhappy… 
    So, don’t keep focusing of what we lack of & forget to count our blessings 🙂 Nice story tho, kudos to the writer 🙂

      I believe she tried to minimize things by telling 8th prince to be aware of 4th at that time, and look what happened. After that, everything is out of her hand.  She’s not God, and she’s not psychic.  She can only know what was written in history.  She tried everything she can to change this course of tragedy first by asking 8th to give up the throne.  If 8th had given up the throne, I don’t think that he would suffer like he did in the end. He might of have a peaceful life with his wives, including RX. He wasn’t wrong to pick ambition because he doesn’t know the future.  At that time, 4th didn’t hate 8th, and he wasn’t in love with RX yet, just merely interested. RX wasn’t being miserable because of herself.  You are right that she was very lucky in the way that all the princes loved her one way or another (except 9th), and was very good to her. But because of those bonds and friendships, it was torture to see them being destroyed like that by the man she loved.  I think if she was selfish and just only concerned about hers and 4th’s relationship and ignored everyone else, yeah, I think she can be content.  But that’s not possible.  Those other men are her friends who she had spent many meaningful years with, and was there for her all the times. It’s not possible to ignore her conscience.  So as long as she has a conscience and 4th are still torturing, it’s impossible to be happy. I think if she can trade off, I think she would trade everything she has for these men to be safe.

      • Vicky

        What I meant is: with her knowledge of what would happen, she chose to get involved in the very beginning. She chose to have a relationship with the 8th prince. For me, love or not, it’s a huge mistake, because once we make a mistake, we have to clean it up, and the bigger the mistake, the harder it is to get out.
        Imagine you met this great guy, but you KNEW he’s a drug dealer. You fell in love to him, but would you take it to the next level to have a relationship with him? You knew what the ending could be.Yet, you chose to be with him. Then you introduced him to your friends & families. Then he started introducing drugs to all of them. All miserable. Whether or not you would turn a blind eye of what he’s doing, unless you also shared the same passion to whatever he’s doing, then you wouldn’t be happy.
        She chose to be with the 8th (big mistake), then with the 4th (even bigger mistake), considered what she warned 8th about 4th. She tangled herself in such a complicated life, no wonder she came out of the hole black & blue.
        If RX hadn’t had any knowledge of what their future held, I’d have spared her 🙂

        • amy

          but can you imagine yourself in her position? how can you not care for a guy thats been there for u for many many years. she ended up falling for 8th and wanted to change history with him by telling him to give up the throne. she thought that with the love 8th has for her, he willing be willing to give up the power. but she was wrong, so the best thing she can do .. was to warn him..

  • Lixiyan

    8th prince very pity.. huhu..

  • 皇帝真的很會選時間讓人罰跪.都是在雨天…

    • Guest

      lol

  • sundae

    argh i hate the 8th wife! why does she have to say those words to rouxi  >:( now the baby is gone!

    • what words? i want to know what she said. i don’t understand chinese, this drama is so good that i can’t wait for subtitles.. so what did she told her?

      • sundae

        the 8th wife said to Rouxi that the whole reason why things are happening was because she told the 8th prince to be aware of nian gen yao and long ke duo ( that was when Rouxi & 8th prince were still together) If she didn’t warn the 8th prince, then the 8th prince wouldn’t have been able to set a trap for the 4th prince. After hearing those words, Rouxi was shocked, she felt like she was the one that should be blamed for making the 13th prince get lock up for 10 years and all the conflicts that are going on.

    • Vicky

      Well, what the 8th wife did, logically made sense to me. Imagine you in her place – devoted 100% to your husband, yet you saw your husband went astray because he was being advised by another woman. That woman used to love your husband, and now you know that woman had changed side as she fell in love to the ‘enemy’. And you had seen your husband was quite in deep shit now thanks to her advice. Would you be afraid that woman would now give advice to the enemy against your husband?

      I admire the 8th wife still, for after all the catastrophe, she still stood by his side.

      • Jus amazed

        Which is the episode that shows that ruo xi told 8 those names?

  • 8th’s wife : b$tch!

    • Southpaw

      To be fair, she didn’t know ruoxi was pregnant. She’s angry, jealous but she merely want to protect her husband and family.

  • Vongenia

    所有的特技都太雷了!

  • Sun_tan5

    這就是若曦多管閒事的結果。

    • cher

      是啊 她管太多了。其實男人的事女人不應該管那麼多。

      • Guest

        你凭什么歧视女人? 什么叫男人的事女人不应该管!? 什么东西!

      • Dreamiie

        不该说女人不该管男人的事。男人不见得会比女人更会妥当的处理事情。大家各凭本领!

        若曦明显是局外人,是她硬要把自己卷入战争之中。阿哥们的争斗根本与他无关,她仗着自己知道历史和每一个人的结局硬是要插上一脚,才会造成今天的结局。真是多管闲事!!
