Day 20: If /when do you think Zhao Yunlan and Shen Wei get together?
This is probably the most disccussed topic of the show!
I wrote a very long reply to a very interesting meta-post that jo_lasalle
wrote a few months ago, discussing exaclty this point.
There are so many moments and little details in the show that leave the viewer with no doubt that their relationship is much more than that of good friends. There's intimacy and understanding each other without words.
Unfortunatly the showrunner couldn't make it more clear and definite, which is a blessing for the many talendted writers who could fill in the blanks (and much more).
After Zhao Yunlan found out about Shen Wei being the Black Cloak Envoy their relationship changed: they are always together and so at ease with each other, it's like something else has being cleared between them beside Shen Wei's double identity.
I think they are a couple after that, with yet too many secrets between them that makes their relationship a bit bumpy (but which isn't).
if the question implies when they did it for the first time, that is even less clear. My take is that Shen Wei, with his integrity and martyr complex, wouldn't be able to take that last step in the relationship while hiding the past - Kunlun's story - to Zhao Yunlan. But that would be to sad because it would mean that they were together "together" only for one night. T_T
This would be acceptable with a happy ending but not that ending. T_T
So, I'm pretty much in favor of Shen Wei's thirst winning over his integrity. Also, it can't be that easy resisting Zhao Yunlan and his lollipops...
