Ashes of Love (Heavy Sweetness, Ash-Like Frost): Episode 63 Final Summary

JM = Jinmi ; XF = Xufeng ; RY = Runyu ; LY = Liuying ; SH = Suihe ; QY = Qiyuan

XF: I used the sword and the fire technique to remove Qiong Qi. You won’t die. I threw away the herb. RY, live for thousands of years in loneliness. Try your best to compensate for your mistakes.

RY turns on his waterworks again 😛

XF keeps thinking about what Lord Doumu said, but the poor guy still can’t understand and keeps asking “JM, where are you?”

At JM and XF’s house in the Human Ream.
RY: The flowers at your place are very pretty.
XF: Just wildflowers and can’t compare to the flowers at your place.
RY: After she’s gone, my flowers disappeared. Still no news? Three years. Has the freezing effect become more serious?
XF: Hasn’t happened again.
RY: This is the last wine bottle made by JM.

XF wants to have a toast, but RY doesn’t do that anymore 😛

RY: I don’t drink now. I’ve been drunk in a dream for too long. I need to wake up. I’ve realized that conquering the Heaven Realm means I need to be a good Heavenly Emperor. Happiness and sadness aren’t meant for Heavenly Emperors. XF, we’ll live for a long time and it’s lonely. If we have someone, that’s good. She always had you in her heart.
XF: What’s the use of saying this? She’s gone and can never return.
RY: Have you opened the box?
XF: Looking at it reminds me of her. It just makes me sadder.
RY: Whatever doesn’t belong to us, we can’t wish for it. Whatever is yours won’t escape.

RY leaves after speaking like Lord Doumu 😛

XF remembers while looking at the pictures JM drew.

He knew that the rabbit was JM. He pretended to be drunk and called for SH to remind himself of how much he should hate her. When she told him she loved him, he threatened to kill her, but if she says it again he would forgive her.

XF hears JM calling him.

In the Flower Realm, flowers bloom again, which means JM’s spirit is coming together. But the flowers die, meaning that JM’s spirit is disappearing. The Flower Chiefs activate the Flower Hall of Time to save JM.

Time freezes and JM appears before XF.
XF: Is it really you?
JM: It’s me, Phoenix. I’ve returned.
XF: Where did you go for three years?
JM: I’ve always been with you. I saw everything you saw, heard everything you heard.
XF: I thought you’d never return. I was wrong. Can you forgive me? Don’t leave me again.
JM: I won’t ever leave you again, Phoenix!!

JM begins to fade.
XF: I’m begging you not to leave me.
JM: So I’m a tear in your eye. It’s fated we would separate.
XF: JM, you promised we’ll always be together.

JM kisses his eye where she lived for 3 years. As time returns, JM disappears.

[Note: I’m kind of disappointed JM’s hilarious monologue when she’s a teardrop in the novel isn’t in the drama. However, this part is very sad, so it’s understandable for the drama to expand the sad moments. Including funny moments would ruin the flow of the story, I suppose.]

XF visits Chief Mudan in the Flower Realm.
XF: So that’s what Lord Doumu meant. I couldn’t find her throughout the 6 realms. Who’d think she lived in my eye. It’s hard for us to meet again, but we’ve separated again. Is this Heaven’s will?
Chief Mudan: When I opened the Flower Hall of Time, I felt that her spirit wasn’t weak, but she was just a flash of light.
XF: When she lived in my eye, the freezing effect never occurred. She absorbed the cold in my body and helped to cure me.
Chief Mudan: And she slowly condensed into a drop of tear and cultivated a true form to save herself. Maybe you two will meet again at another place and another time.
XF: JM, I’ll wait for you. I’ll definitely find you.

It’s the day Tang Yue Shop’s young miss will marry into the Prime Minister’s family. Strangely, she’s been obsessed with demons ever since she was little. When she grew up, she began to cultivate, but while people strive to be immortal, she wants to be a demon.

[Note: Woot woot, JM’s father has been reincarnated as her father in the Human Realm. Hopefully, Lord Liaoyuan is alive somewhere in the Human Realm, too!!!]

As the bridal party makes its way through a forest, a phoenix appears and scares everyone away. Oh look, who else could it be but our beloved arrogant Phoenix!!! 😛
Lord Doumu: JM was protected by the ash. In the Heaven-Demon war, she used her body to save the 6 realms from war, earning immense merit. Her fated calamity has been resolved. She’s waiting for you where you first fell in love.

[Note: At first I was disappointed because where’s the sea of flowers as described in the book? But having them meet again in the forest where she first saved him and they fell in love while living in a hut nearby is very meaningful.]

XF: I’ve arrived.
JM: But I’ve accepted wedding gifts from the Prime Minister. What to do?
XF: Too bad. I’ve prepared 6,000 years of divine strength.
JM: Then I’ll reluctantly obey.

XF holds JM.
XF: In this life in this lifetime, forever, you can only be my wife.

Tangyue: That’s the story of my parents. Two years after my father stole the bride, I was born. It’s been 7 years. Our family of three lives peacefully and happily in the Human Realm.

As TY fishes for a wife, LY’s daughter drops by. She met a handsome disciple from Mount Kunlun and will go to Kunlun to convince him to marry her.

In the Demon Realm, LY has become a great ruler. She forbids demons from fighting each other and aims to unite all the demons so the realm will be strong.

The Flower Realm brings a new flower that’s been created by JM. LY gets to name it.

SH has gone crazy. She thinks she’s the Heavenly Empress and runs into the sons of the late Demon Lord.

Tangyue continues fishing for a wife, and RY appears.
RY: Did you mother teach you to fish for a wife?
Tangyue: You can fish with me. Mom said there are many pretty wives in the lake.

JM appears.
JM: I wondered why there’s a Heavenly energy in the area.
RY: I had some business and passed by.
JM: You have to care about humans fighting too?
RY: Are you happy? Of course, you are happy.

RY leaves.
JM: Let’s go home.
Tangyue: But I haven’t fished for a wife yet.
JM: I’ll tell you a secret. That year, your dad threw a big tantrum and demanded my hook.

XF appears. The three of them talk about what they’ll eat.

[Note: Tangyue’s true form is a white egret, a water bird, as in the novel.]

In the Heaven Realm.
RY: I’ve got my revenge. My fate is in my hands. I became the untouchable Heavenly Emperor. Got everything I wanted, but I still have nothing.
Kuanglu: It’s not like you don’t have anything. I and the Nightmare Beast will always be with you.

The End.
JM: Even though I still can’t see colors, Phoenix’s gaze and my son’s smile are the most beautiful scene in my heart, far more beautiful than any scenes in the world.

  1. Ugh my heart!!! 😭

    I’ve finished watching it all but since I still can’t move on yet, I’m binge watching it all over again and again!!

    I didn’t know you’d still do the recaps!! Thank you for your time!!

    1. My understanding is JM was born human and through cultivation became immortal. In the scene which first showed JM’s reincarnation as she was about to marry into the Prime Minster’s family, the villagers talked about how obsessed she was with cultivation. The wrap up of the drama shows what happened to everyone after 500 years. JM/XF were still living happily in the Human Realm with their son, so by that point, JM had to be immortal or she’d die a long time ago.

      Another reason I think JM is immortal is the Flower Realm sent a new flower creation to the Demon Realm as a gift. As we’ve seen in the drama, JM is the only person who can create flowers because she’s the sole successor of the late Flower Diety. And JM cannot create flowers if she’s human.
