The Imperial Age 山河月明 Episode 17 Recap
It was raining heavily, Miaoyun came to see Queen Ma in the rain, Haibei went to hold an umbrella in the rain and asked her if it was worth doing for Zhu Di. Miaoyun just said that she was not herself, she did not understand. Queen Ma went out and saw that her daughter-in-law was kneeling in the rain, she felt extremely distressed.
Finally seeing Empress Ma, Miao Yun fainted and fainted. After diagnosis and treatment, the imperial physician told Queen Ma that Princess Yan was happy, but she was weak and contracted the cold. Queen Ma told him to take good care of Miaoyun, regardless of King Yan’s decline, but if anyone dared to neglect Princess Yan, she would not be able to spare him.
Empress Ma called Zhu Yuanzhang and sent back the palace servants. She angrily beat Zhu Yuanzhang with a feather duster. After she calmed down, she told Miaoyun’s experience during this period of time. Zhu Gaochi fell ill in Peiping, and Miaoyun took him to travel between Peiping and the capital. Zhu Gaochi’s body became weak and he could no longer ride horses to practice martial arts.
Now even Miaoyun is ill. Queen Ma was very angry, thinking that it was Zhu Yuanzhang’s fault, and he ignored the lives of his sons, daughters-in-law and grandchildren. In the palace, the prince’s concubines also came to intercede with Zhu Yuanzhang, hoping that he would be merciful and treat King Yan lightly.
After Miao Yun woke up, she knelt down in front of Zhu Yuanzhang and Queen Ma together, and begged His Majesty for mercy. Zhu Yuanzhang finally issued an edict to escort Zhu Di to Huiji Temple and let him listen to Buddhist scriptures. When Zhu Liangzu heard about it, he hurriedly went to Hu Weiyong. Hu Weiyong asked him to write down the memorial form, and asked His Majesty to declare the canonical punishment. Hu Weiyong and others signed it.
His Majesty treats King Yan like this, and Hu Weiyong sees that he treats Zhu Di very differently. Hu Weiyong asked his officials to pay the previous year’s tax well this year, and be careful in everything. Zhu Di was taken to Huiji Temple, where he accidentally discovered Daoyan.
Daoyan is bold and daring to speak, and he dares to do it. Counting the time, the tax officials in previous years are going to the capital. Daoyan said that it was time for King Yan to wait. Miaoyun proposed to go to Huiji Temple to pray for the queen. Queen Ma agreed, and Zhu Yuanzhang also agreed, but before going, he asked Miaoyun to meet him.
King Yan learned that Miaoyun came to the temple to pray for blessings, and hurried to see her, and the two embraced tightly. Tu Jie’s eyeliner told Tu Jie about this, and he wrote a roll of paper overnight. Zhu Yuanzhang found a new job for the Twelfth Prince, and he was actually the deputy commander of the commander of the pro-army commander, that is, the deputy commander of Jinyiwei. When he saw the prince, the prince was very surprised and a little angry at the same time.
At this time, things have gradually revealed clues. The emperor and Zhu Di played a big game of chess, waiting for those officials who went to the capital to pay official rations to enter the capital. Li Jinglong and Xu Yungong ordered the entire city to be sealed off, and Miao Yun also knew everything and gently helped Zhu Di put on his official hat and belt. Afterwards, Zhu Di ordered the blockade of post houses and inns throughout the city, and all officials who entered the city to pay official rations were arrested.
Tu Jie hurried to the Hu residence to inform him of this. Hu Weiyong is not in a mess. He has told everyone to pay taxes this year, and there will be no mistakes. Unexpectedly, Tu Jie told him that his subordinates did not do as required, and this time they came with an empty printed form. Hu Weiyong was shocked, then furious, and his emotions were almost crazy.
Tu Jie ran out of Hu Mansion like a bereaved dog, and Zhu Bo then brought Jin Yiwei to arrest Hu Weiyong. Seeing that the evidence was conclusive, Tu Jie turned his back on the battlefield and knelt down to Zhu Di and said that he wanted to expose Hu Weiyong. The officials came up with empty printed statements in order to falsify accounts. This time, they brought evidence and were arrested. Zhu Yuanzhang asked Zhu Di and Zhu Biao to have dinner with him.
Noticing that they were winking, Zhu Yuanzhang said that he did not give Zhu Bo an official seal. When this matter was over, he would be less involved in Jin Yiwei’s affairs. Zhu Yuanzhang also asked the crown prince not to complain that Zhu Di kept the matter from him. In this matter, Zhu Di made progress by retreating, and even Zhu Yuanzhang did not expect that it was a full harvest.
Zhu Biao has a lot of things on his mind. Miao Yun has only been married to Zhu Di for a few years. She believes in Zhu Di’s character, but she doesn’t believe in the younger brother she brought up. He can’t help feeling ashamed.
