I think the new version of Three Kingdoms TV play is not bad. It did not mainly focus on the big scenes, but is on the strategies. Maybe it is because of my growing age, I have a different understanding of some well-known episodes in the famous Three Kingdoms.
The most interesting episode is the Empty-town Plan of Mr. ZhuGeLiang who is regarded as the most intelligent man in that time. After losing their food path, Mr. ZhuGeLiang wanted to protect the whole army of Shu Dynasty. So he went to a small town to save the remaining food with only about 2,000 soldiers. And Mr. SiMaYi who was a senior commander in Wei Dynasty also knew about this. I doubt that Mr. SiMaYi wouldn’t know exactly how many soldiers there were in that small town, but one thing is very clear that the number of the soldiers which Mr. SiMaYi brought to fight with Mr. ZhuGeLiang must not have been a small one. But when Mr. SiMaYi arrived at that town, he found that Mr. ZhuGeLiang was playing his Chinese zither on the gate tower comfortably, and the gates of the town was open, and there were only several farmers cleaning the ground near the gates. This was not a battle array. Obviously, it was a trick and I think everyone should know about it. This is the only one time that Mr. ZhuGeLiang played his zither on a gate tower during a war. And if it was a real trick, army of Shu Dynasty should rush out when army of Wei Dynasty arrived. But it was not the case. When the army of Wei Dynasty fled, nothing happened!
Mr. ZhuGeLiang could play zither, and Mr. SiMaYi could also play it. Maybe he got some information through the sound of Mr. ZhuGeLiang’s playing. When Mr. SiMaYi saw Mr. ZhuGeLiang was playing, and listened to the sound, and faced the opened gates, he knew everything. Then he told his generals on purpose that there was an ambush, and we must go back right now.
Mr. SiMaYi knew everything. Mr. ZhuGeLiang must not die if only Cao relatives were still alive. He needed Mr. ZhuGeLiang’s help to kill his political enemies, and I think this is the reason why Mr. SiMaYi chased Mr. ZhuGeLiang by himself. He wanted to find a chance to let Mr. ZhuGeLiang go and Mr. ZhuGeLiang created a chance himself to give an excuse to Mr. SiMaYi to let him go. And No one knew about it except the two men!
Interesting analysis! I see you are trying to use complex sentences to express idea. You know you used “MR” ahead of all the names. That’s so funny!
