    OK, the White Viper is "Maya," Jade's daughter. But who is Maya's father? It can't be Fu, can it? I thought Jade and Fu were married. But Maya is White; with her light blond hair and Occidental features, Maya doesn't look even half Asian. So who is Maya's father? Why isn't Maya asking that question?Jade has known Maya was her daughter for twelve, fifteen, eighteen years? How old is Maya anyway? Jade hasn't said anything until now. Why? Nobody else recognized the baby or even suspected. An occidental baby born in a remote Asian village and no one but the mother suspects that the the occidental orphan that comes into town a few months later might be the same child? There is something about Maya's birth that Jade hasn't let on yet. And Maya doesn't seem even a little angry that she's been living with her mother for years and Jade has kept her ignorant and at a distance this whole time. Hmm.The boy says that his mother was also forced to give up his baby sister. Was that the other basket that was thrown down the mountain back in the first episode of White Viper? I had assumed that it was twins. And so it must be the midwife that was eaten by wolves way back then. I had been expecting a reunion with Maya's long separated twin either raised by wolves or raised by the bandits up in the mountains. Shows to go ya what I know! The whole petroleum-free plastics thing came as a big surprise to me as well.How long was infanticide practiced by this remote village? Is it still being practiced? There don't seem to be ANY children younger than Maya. Then again, it's had to procreate when there aren't any women.
