Yi Xiu and Zhen Huan are equal in means, and even in the second half, Yi Xiu has an advantage, but why did she fall behind in this confrontation drama and be turned around by Zhen Huan?
This should analyze the causes and consequences of this situation from three aspects, so that we can better understand the fall of a generation of queens.
The vanity of appearance, the deep thoughts, the illusion of friendliness, and the mastermind behind the dormant are all what we see as "bystanders", and we can't help but feel Yi Xiu's viciousness.
But a person has come to this point, which is inseparable from her own personality and growth environment.
Her core is still inferiority, and even causes her inner burden to envy and harm others, and the insecurity of being in a high position makes her unable to self-control all kinds of means to protect herself and soothe the emptiness in her heart.
Her identity is still something she can't mind, since she was a child, she has been in the shadow of her sister, Queen Chunyuan, and the asymmetry of her status makes her get less correspondingly.
When I was a child, I couldn't be satisfied, so that these little bits and pieces of disappointment and sadness accumulated in my heart, but after getting Yongzheng's love and losing it again, and the death of my child, it reached its peak.
The "blackened" Yi Xiu was blinded
It was difficult to restrain herself, Yi Xiu was "blackened" at this moment, after Queen Chunyuan became pregnant, her sister Yi Xiu was jealous and steamed food with banana leaves, so that the unsuspecting Queen Chunyuan ate it.
even replaced the almond tea that Queen Chunyuan drank with peach kernels, and banana leaves and peach kernels were very hurtful things, so Queen Chunyuan had a difficult birth, and both mother and child died.
This is just the beginning, after she killed Chunyuan's mother and son, she tasted the sweetness, and then ascended to the position of the successor and gained greater power.
However, she has come to this point by murder, and in order to maintain her position, she will inevitably adopt more cruel methods.
killed many concubines one after another, and even the sinister and suspicious An Lingrong died in her conspiracy.
Starting from the palace, in addition to Chunyuan's children, there should be Concubine Hua's children, Duanfei's children, and the children of Fang Guiren, Fucha's family, Zhen Huan, Xin Concubine, Ning Concubine, An Lingrong, and Qi Concubine, so there are seven.
Neither adults nor children can escape her methods, and they all dedicate themselves to her ambitions.
She is also gradually confused, these so-called achievements make her proud, and she feels complacent that she still has some ability.
So when she thought that she had caught Zhen Huan's fatal handle, she lost a little caution in ecstasy and picked up a little innocence of a child, but this is the last thing she should have in a high position.
Loss of perception
Yi Xiu is not only the niece of the Queen Mother, but also the sister of the former Empress Chunyuan, and her father is also the Minister of First Rank in charge of the military in the capital, these identities give her a certain confidence to make trouble.
She clearly knows where her advantages are, how to pinch and suppress others, and how to use these identities to invisibly set traps for her own purposes.
Yi Xiu fell into an illusory dream that she had woven for herself, making her forget about herself, ignoring the importance of her allies and ignoring the emperor's arrogant self-esteem.
When she framed An Lingrong, she did not consider leaving a way back for herself, and even buried hidden dangers for herself.
When the Qi nobles informed her, they did not deal with it reasonably, but let her be arrogant in front of the emperor and apply for a blood test.
This is undoubtedly a slap in the face of the emperor, pointing out that the emperor may have been cuckolded, and the emperor's dignity and face were violated, so although the slap was on the face of the nobles, it was even more on Yi Xiu's heart.
The emperor indirectly said that Yi Xiu's approach was presumptuous and unreasonable, but Yi Xiu still failed to understand this meaning, and insisted on driving the emperor to the high platform and starting this doomed drama.
From this point of view, the cruel achievements that have fallen behind along the way have made her forget the crisis that is dormant around her.
Her contradictory character of pride and inferiority, and the loss of her sense of her own danger, made her exhaustive calculations come to naught, and a momentary omission made her not know even in the end, and that slap was the wake-up call and beginning of failure.
