Chong's slight reservations as being the head of a group of nuns, Ren Yingying
comforts him. Linghu Chong is aware that that it is all because of him that Ren
Yingying orders her subordinates to join Hengshan Sect. Ren Yingying has a heart-to-heart
talk with him. Before going back to Black Wood Cliff to assist her father in exacting
revenge on Dongfang Bubai, she requests Linghu Chong to play the tune 'You Suo
Si' for her.
On her way home,
she encounters Yi Lin who asks, "Miss Ren, are you really going to leave
Hengshan?" Ren Yingying merely smiles and leaves without replying.
It is the wedding
night of Lin Pingzhi and Yue Lingshan. Lin Pingzhi wakes up abruptly. After
making sure that Yue Lingshan is sound asleep, he picks up his sword. Before
leaving, he casts a last glance at Yue Lingshan. "Shan mei. Beloved wife.
I, Lin Pingzhi, shall repay you in my next life."
In the wild. Throwing
the cassock into the air. With determined resolution, Lin Pingzhi finally makes
the ultimate sacrifice (castration) necessary to master the invincible Pixie
Early in the morning,
Yue Lingshan frantically rushes to Ning Zhongze's room, after finding Lin Pingzhi
missing. Ning Zongze intends to order a search but is stopped by Yue Buqun who
deems this (disappearance of the groom on the wedding day) a disgrace. "Who
knows", he mutters in a feminine manner. "That Lin Pingzhi has even
got hold of Pixie Swordplay and might be practising it somewhere. The next time
Lin Pingzhi appears, he will not be the same anymore." To Yue Buqun, the
most pressing task now, is for Yue Lingshan to concentrate on learning the skills
at Repentance Cliff. The date for the merger of the 5 sects is approaching.
Yue Lingshan weeps uncontrollably.
Back at Hengshan
Sect, Linghu Chong is torn as to whether to assist Ren Yingying in killing Dongfang
Bubai since now he is the leader of Hengshan. Yi Lin advises, "As long
it's not against one's conscience, there's nothing one can't do." This
sentence jolts Linghu Chong to enlightenment and he decides to look for Ren
Ren Yingying reunites
with Ren Woxing and Xiang Wentian. She is feeling down till the sudden arrival
of Linghu Chong. She is happy to see him again.
The 4 of them and
Shangguan enter Black Wood Cliff. All of them proceed to pay respects to Dongfang
Bubai. Lu Baixiong (member of Sun Moon Sect) is tied up. He defends himself
against the accusations of colluding with Ren Woxing. However, Yang Lianting
insists that he owe up to his misdeeds. Lu Baixiong refuses to bulge and is
being carried away. He laments and wishes to hear Dongfang Bubai speak personally,
instead of the indirect orders of Yang Lianting. He breaks free of the rope.
Simultaneously, Ren Yingying, Linghu Chong, Ren Woxing and Xiang Wentian spring
into action too. At once, the place is in chaos. Both Yang Lianting and Dongfang
Bubai are caught. It is soon revealed that this Dongfang Bubai is an imposter.
A subordinate comes
along, reporting the whereabouts of the real Dongfang Bubai. Yang Lianting is
forced to lead the way there.
As they further
approach their destination, a demure voice is heard. "Brother Lian, who
have you brought along?
Ren Woxing laughs
hysterically. "Have you really mastered Kuihua Baodian?" Dongfang
Bubai replies nonchalantly, "Well, come in and you will know."
They enter the
room. Dongfang Bubai is fondling with his hair and admiring himself in the mirror.
Ren Woxing laughs at the great difference in Dongfang Bubai's looks between
12 years ago and the present. In his view, this is retribution.
swiftly snatches his beloved Yang Lianting and is alarmed that his legs are
broken now. Yang Lianting orders him to get rid of all them first, before getting
intimate. Every wish of Yang Lianting is Dongfang Bubai's command. Lu Baixiong
is utterly disappointed in this new Dongfang Bubai, one who is totally infatuated
with Yang Lianting, and leaves sect matters unmanaged. Dongfang Bubai suddenly
kills him. Blood spurts out. Dongfang Bubai then carries Yang Lianting and flew
out of the room.
Ren Woxing interrogates
Dongfang Bubai as to whether it is because of Kuihua Baodian that causes him
to betray and harm himself. All this, Dongfang Bubai readily admits. He then
praises Xiang Wentian for being a man of great caliber and envy Ren Yingying
for being a woman, and such a beautiful one, somemore. Upon hearing all these
'confessions', Ren Woxing breaks into laugher again. Dongfang Bubai further
claims if Linghu Chong were to die at his hands today, it would be a pity. All
4 instinctively draw out their swords, in full gear for the commencement of
a great battle.
