Why are they dead?

Postby Chibi Jennifer » Mon Sep 20, 2010 9:26 am

haha I just finished re-watching the entire CP3 again (the second time) and got a bit confused by the end. When all the main characters transferred their powers into Jing Tian, they did they faint from over using their powers? Cause I thought that was the case, but then after Jing Tian defeats the Evil Sword Immortal, and all the characters (Xue Jian, Chong Lou, Zixuan..etc) wake up from their beds and wonder why they're not dead. They were like "Why aren't we dead?"

Jing Tian gave up part of his life so Tian Di could revive those who died, I think thats how it went anyways

I understood that part, but when did they actually die in the first place? :/

They passed their strength to Jing Tian, so they were out of breath themselves. I think it had something to do with Qing Wei saving them, not after Jing Tian defeats Xie Jian Xian. Xue Jianm said something like "I died once already"

But that totally doesn't make sense :/ If them passing their strength to Jing Tian kills them, I doubt Jing Tian would offer to do it at all. Plus, Qing Wei also passed his energy to Jing Tian, so it doesn't make sense he was still alive and revived everyone?

in the game it's either Xue Jian or Long Kui sacrificed her life to forge the sword and save Jing Tian and others are not "dead" (depends on choices in previous dialogs)... looks like they changed the stuff here so not sure about what's going on :P

hahha yes this is definitely changed from the game xDD I don't think it really makes much sense..

Here it's either Long Kui or Xue Jian who will sacrifice themselves to forge the sword to beat Xue Jian Xian..except, Xue Jian was no where near as "sacrificial" as Long Kui, who seemed to just throw her life away without a second thought XD And it's kinda dumb since, even after Long Kui sacrificed herself, all the other characters still had to "die" (or whatever happened) in order to make Jing Tian strong enough to wield the sword ^^;;

The big picture (I think) is saving the world, rather than just their own little circle of friends. The so-called 'greater good'. I repeat: I think anyway lol.
I need more wuxia in my life.

:P :P :P

Jen I didn't get that either. Of course, like you I could understand in retrospect what happened, etc but when I first saw it and heard the "Why aren't we dead?" line my reaction was.... "OH! You DIED?!? It just looked like you fainted!".

Simply bad execution on the director's part.

... or maybe it's because we're so used to watching Sailor Moon where character lend the main character their powers every other episode with no repercussions at all. :wink:

What's weirder is that when they "died" after giving their power to Jing Tian, Jing Tian went to see Zi Xuan instead of Xue Jian...I love Jing Tian and Xue Jian as a couple and I was jut wondering WHY he just didn't cry or at least react to Xue Jian's "death".

Oh I was very amused when Jing Tian went to see Zixuan instead of Xue Jian XD (Only because along the whole way I never felt Jing Tian really loved Xue Jian that much, lol)
