Dao Wu Xia asks his sister whether she still has Lei Jing Hong in her heart. He continues to say that she’s his only blood relation left on this earth and that if she can only live for Lei Jing Hong and die for him, there’s no point in him killing her love, “I can let him go…but he must agree to my condition…submit to World Swordless City”. Hearing this condition, Lei Xiang knows that Lei Jing Hong will not agree to it and Dao Wu Xia says that if that’s the case, he has no choice in his future actions.
Meanwhile, Huang Cong tells Lei Jing Hong of her arrangements who tells her that he wishes to go to Ping’an Town. She tells him that its dangerous since its close to World Swordless City but he is adamant in going.
Later, Dao Liexiang is informed by her servant that Lei Jing Hong is soon to arrive at Ping’an Town and she then goes to see him, “You purposely came here to see me right?”. Seeing her, he quickly hugs her and begs her to leave with him. She pushes him away and he confesses his love for her. Hearing this, she asks him to go to World Swordless City with her, telling him to give up on his plans to return with her. However, he says that he can’t especially after what happened to her second eldest brother and she uses this fact to her advantage to try to persuade him.
Next, Feng Huang goes inside with Huang Cong after waiting for Lei Jing Hong impatiently. They go in to find that he has disappeared and find a jewellery left on the ground which indicates that he has been taken by someone from the World Swordless City. Huang Cong persuades Feng Huang not to run into World Swordless City without a plan especially since she has no skills in fighting.
Afterwards, we see that Lei Jing Hong has regained his consciousness but is feeling weak. He realised that Dao Lie Xiang has done something to him and she says that she did it to protect him. She tells him what her brother said and that they can marry as long as long as he fulfils the condition. She tells him how her sect is currently number 1 and that if he’s with them, no one would dare to harm him. She then leaves him to think it through.
Meanwhile, Zhan Feng is still drinking in broad daylight. Brother Ji walks past and Zhan Feng quickly helps him to sit down. Seems like Zhan Feng is still full of regrets towards his master’s death and Brother Ji is trying his best to comfort him. Zhan Feng tells Brother Ji that he will justify himself in front of Ru Ge. He then grabs his sword and heads over to the prison cell where Brother Yi is located. Brother Yi is afraid of Zhan Feng who is pointing his sword at him and tries to persuade him from killing him. He tells him that Zhan Feng that he knows a secret about his parents and that he would want to hear about it. Brother Yi reveals that although the Old Sect Leader knew about Zhan Feng’s evil deeds, he didn’t do anything because he loves him…and because Zhan Feng is his biological son.
Zhan Feng does not believe him but Brother Yi continues to talk and mentions his biological mother. After hearing everything, Zhan Feng walks about angrily, “Why did master do this?”. The soldier that was guarding Brother Yi’s cell is soon stabbed by Brother Yi who uses the sword Zhan Feng accidentally left behind. He successfully escapes from Flaming Hills and vows that he will come back one day.
Zhan Feng runs towards his master’s memorial tablet and recalls all of Brother Yi’s words about him being his biological father. He recalls all of his past memories with his master and remembers his last words, “Leave An Yeluo…I don’t want you to regret it”. He kneels in front of his master’s tablet and we can see the regret on his face.
Later, Ru Ge is informed of Brother Yi’s escape by Qinglong Hall’s Chief and that his men are chasing after him. He also tells her about Zhan Feng and she goes to see him. She angrily asks why he let Brother Yi go when their matter is not finished yet. Seeing him so down, she asks him whether he can now finally tell her about her dad’s situation. He reveals what happened to her father that night and how he met his demise. Hearing this, Ru Ge cries out loud and Yin Xue runs in to comfort her. He reveals to her that Zhan Feng is the Old Sect Leader’s biological son and that he didn’t reveal this to them because he wanted to protect Ru Ge from An Yeluo. Hence, Ru Ge is the daughter of Zhan Fei Tian and An Yeming. Yin Xue explains what happened that fateful night when her parents died because of An Yeluo. And how Yin Xue saved Zhan Feng from An Yeluo when he was a baby.
Hearing all of this, Zhan Feng gets up to go to kill An Yeluo but Yin Xue stops him saying that if he does go, he will fail and die as well as harming Ru Ge in the process as An Yeluo will discover the truth. Ru Ge says that she’s not afraid of An Yeluo but Zhan Feng should not go on this suicidal mission. Yin Xue tells him to be calm and to ensure that An Yeluo will not discover this truth. He also instructs Zhan Feng to find him at his Li Courtyard in three days.
An Yejue and Xun Yi meets up with Brother Yi who tells them that he has escaped. Xun Yi rushes to kill him as An Yejue says that it is Anhe Palace’s will to kill him. However, he escaped again and there’s nothing they can do.
Later in the night, Ru Ge is unable to go to sleep. She is still going over Yin Xue’s words and the fact that her father was not her biological father. Yin Xue comforts her saying that they did this because they love her and want to protect her from harm. She tells him that she will make sure one day everyone will know this truth and stop misunderstanding the Old Sect Leader. Chief of Qinglong Hall comes in to tell them that finding Brother Yi’s location is difficult and about Lei Jing Hong’s whereabouts. Knowing that they don’t have his current whereabouts, Ru Ge requests Qinglong Hall to find out where is Lei Jing Hong.
Meanwhile, Brother Yi is hungry, tired and lethargic from his escape. He walks towards a noodle stall where the kind auntie who’s in charge of the stall tells him that she will treat him to a meal after he told her that he has no money. Seems like he hasn’t experienced such kindness in such a long time. But in actual fact, we realise that that auntie was his biological mother whom she accidentally lost when she was in shock at seeing her dead husband.
Feng Huang is drinking tea by herself at a restaurant. Dao Lie Xiang soon comes in and waits for her takeaway food. Feng Huang goes to greet her and Dao Lie Xiang does not reveal anything about Lei Jing Hong’s whereabouts. Instead, she tells her to leave this city. Feng Huang asks the waiter about the dish Lie Xiang ordered and through their conversation, she believes that Lei Jing Hong is with Dao Lie Xiang.
Back to Lei Jing Hong, Dao Lie Xiang pours him wine from his home country. She still tries to persuade him to marry her. Dao Wu Xia is informed about a lady who wishes to see him and he becomes intrigued. That lady is Feng Huang. He goes to meet with her and she begins to seduce him. He brings her back to his residence but they are soon interrupted by his soldier who tells him that Brother Yi is here. Dao Wu Xia goes to meet Brother Yi but not before telling her to wait for him as he will be back soon.
Dao Wu Xia goes to see Brother Yi and tells him that he can’t help him as he’s no use to him. Brother Yi tells him that he still has use and tries to persuade him. He succeeded as Dao Wu Xia compliments him. Then, Dao Lie Xiang arrives and Dao Wu Xia uses this chance to tell her that Brother Yi will now be their steward from now on. He dismisses him and talks to her alone. However, Brother Yi eavesdrop on their conversation and finds out about Feng Huang. She warns him about her saying that she’s not so simple but he dismisses her words.
The next morning, Zhan Feng battles with Yin Xue. We see that Zhan Feng’s eyes becomes red when he’s in anger – Yin Xue explains that he will help Zhan Feng learn all of the martial skills from Anhe Palace as he used to be a disciple from there. Meanwhile, Ru Ge is reading up information on how to defeat the winter curse for Yin Xue. Zhan Feng walks in and omgsh…his smile! I haven’t seen that in such a long time!!!!! He proceeds to help her find out information although she says that he doesn’t need to since it will waste his time. But he tells her that he has nothing else to do so its fine.
She then says sorry to him for everything – how they were swapped when they were babies and that he had to suffer in her place. He tells her that it was not her fault and he doesn’t blame her. He asks her whether she hates him but she shakes her head, “The person I hate is An Yeluo”.
Later, Third Chief pours tea for Brother Ji and informs him about Ru Ge and Zhan Feng spending a day together at the library. This news makes him happy as he hopes they can be together. But then he remembers that Zhan Feng is married to Dao Lie Xiang and that Ru Ge can’t possibly become his 2nd wife!
The next day, Zhan Feng is practising his martial arts near the lake. Brother Ji arrives and compliments Zhan Feng on his skills. They talk about his childhood and later, Brother Ji tells him about Ying Yi’s death. Zhan Feng becomes sad saying that she could’ve had a better life if she didn’t follow him. Brother Ji then changes the subject and asks about what he will do with his relationship with Ru Ge. Zhan Feng tells him that they’re over but Brother Ji doesn’t want to believe it and tries to persuade him. Zhan sees Bi’er (Third Chief) heading over and asks Brother Ji about her. Brother Ji reveals that she’s a great lady but because of his disability, he couldn’t dare to marry her. She hears this and slowly walks up to him as Zhan Feng watches. Bi’er walks up to them and playfully makes fun of Brother Ji.
Next, Ru Ge is still looking for solutions to cure Yin Xue. Her maid brings her warm tea and leaves her alone. She walks out to find Zhan Feng standing outside the door who tells him that Ru Ge is now sleeping. He dismisses the maid and stands outside her door but then leaves.
The next day, Ru Ge awakes and her maid tells her about Zhan Feng who came to see her last night. We then see Zhan Feng giving his answer to Yin Xue which is to accept Yin Xue’s teachings. Yin Xue tells him that there’s not much time and he wants Zhan Feng to quickly finish learning the 9th Level of the Anhe Palace’s martial arts skill. It took An Yeluo 6 months to learn it and that when he was at level 8, he killed his own master. Zhan Feng has doubts in his own abilities to learn it quickly and Yin Xue says that while he can’t he does have a plan on how they can battle against An Yeluo. But for now, he wants Zhan Feng to cultivate his inner energy and power.
I like these episodes especially since Zhan Feng seems like he’s at peace! He is no longer cold and emotionless – it was weird to see him with a smile on his face but my heart melts all the same!
