Tomb raiding keeps going as we see all the characters still facing their demons. Chen Pi remembers the first time Ya Tou made noodles for him. Er Ye thinks about dying old with Ya Tou. The White-Japanese dude imagines himself getting old and this makes him extremely scarred (yes, his character became even more one dimensional now). From this point on, I think he goes insane.
While all this happens, the cave crumbles down in small pieces. Everyone successfully gets out of the cave. The White guy goes insane and is brought back to the Japanese lady. Chen Pi is still in an hallucination as he imagines he is the one saving and getting married to Ya Tou. Er Ye tells him to come back to his senses to no avail. Chen Pi wants to find Ya Tou back and runs to the White guy, but is rushed outside by the American embassy. He is then caught by Captain Lu.
A lot of diplomatic talks in this episode. Captain Lu gets visited by Fo Ye who gives him a precious object he found in the cave in exchange for his army back. Captain Lu of course plays the petty game and refuses. However, no worries because it was all a scheme prepared by Fo Ye!
One after the other, everyone goes to visit Ms.Huo. Lieutenant Zhang goes to tell her Fo Ye forgave her for her wrong doings. Captain Lu goes to make sure their alliance is still strong. Ba Ye goes to remind her of the power of Fo Ye and The Mystic Nine. After analyzing her life, he recommends her to go back to the Mystic Nine troop. After seeing member of the Zhang family in the street (thought they all died years ago?!), Ms.Huo tells her maid she will not help Captain Lu since that is a suicidal option.
Later, Captain Lu is examining the new treasure when the men from Zhang family comes to kill him since it does not belong in his hands. Afterward, all the good people write letters to the Chinese government to force them to grant back the power to Captain Lu, which they did. The Huo family’s elders are mad at Ms.Huo and strips her from her title. Fo Ye talks for her and she can still keep her title a bit longer.
At the Mystic Nine family reunion (finally!!), everyone talks casually. After thanking everyone for their hardwork, Fo Ye talks about his worries. First, the Japanese people must be mad that the cave is destroyed so they must stay careful. Next, they are not sure what to do with Chen Pi as he can legitimately become Lao Si (aka No. 4 in the Mystic Nine family), but because of his identity as a murderer and the role he played previously. Er Ye says he is sorry for his disciple. Ms.Huo also announced her retirement as she is sorry for what she did during the past episodes.
Back at home, Fo Ye cooks for Xinyue.
Which makes Xinyue wonder what for. She is suspicious and eats cautiously. Fo Ye is super happy to hear she likes the food and brings out a bouquet of flower. He proposes to her.
She first hesitates in disbelieves. Fo Ye says that ever since the first day they met, he felt for her and started thinking of her everyday (OMG!!! CUTE!). Also, she asks him if he loves her which he says yes! Then, she cries and says she has finally successfully waited for this day. She accepts by offering her lips. They kiss once.
And another time more in depth
At the wedding night, Fo Ye fakes to be drunk so his friends will stop offering him shots. Fo Ye wonders why Er Ye didn’t come to accompany him to the bedroom (and we all know from the novel spoilers, it is because he is sad his Fo Ye got taken away hihi).
Fo Ye enters the room.
Xinyue sees him.
She tries to play games by taking control by getting out her gun. Of course, Fo Ye easily of plays her. They joke around about traditions at her hotel and she says she must know how to use/control a gun since her husband is a military man. To which, Fo Ye tells her it is all good as long as she can control her husband!! Fo Ye also says he is lucky to have gained her at the auction at the beginning to which Xinyue fully agrees.
On the bed, Xinyue puts Fo Ye down and asks him if he loves her. He says it is the first time she called him “husband” aka in the train when Pu San Pian was trying to take her away. Satisfied, Xinyue says that it is also at that moment she decided he is hers.
Fo Ye takes control on the bed by saying she doesn’t know how to manipulate the gun.
Slow motion? Here are the stills version!
He approaches to give her a kiss, but she reminds him to close the light. Then, we hear them giggle around in bed~
Now, we move on to Er Ye who drinks alone thinking about Ya Tou. Ya Tou must be happy to know Fo Ye and Xinyue are getting married. He starts singing opera.
Later, at home, Xinyue is daydreaming (nightdreaming?) in the living room. Fo Ye joins her and they strike for their iconic pose.
Xinyue says she cannot believe this moment.
Fo Ye tells her that he is well alive next to her. Xinyue says she is not done getting married (she loves the feeling!) and they agree to do it again at her hometown. Yes please! *_*
One year later, there seems to be an epidemic in town that makes everyone especially itchy on the body. Xinyue worries about Fo Ye going to work like a married couple.
Er Ye is getting treated by Dr. Mu (the cousin). Xinyue comes to bring food to them and they both tells Er Ye to take better care of his body. Xinyue wants to ship her cousin with Er Ye. However, it is pretty easy to see that Er Ye still cannot forget Ya Tou.
Dr.Mu gets back home to notice that the document from the epidemy looks weird. She shares her thoughts with her supervisor who tells her to not worry. However, she decides to investigate by herself.
At the Japanese camp, White dude is finally awake and is ready to plot again. He decides he need to find Chen Pi next to keep going with his plans.
Chen Pi forgot all his memories and is working at a farm with a young girl whom he thinks is Ya Tou. The Japanese lady comes to get them and Chen Pi decides to follow her back to re-awake his memories. The girl cries for him to come back. Back at the Japanese place, they try to treat Chen Pi back to his old self. Turns out that the girl in the country house is a little girl whose parents are dead and her name is also Ya Tou.
Fo Ye is working hard and gets back to see Xinyue sleeping on the sofa. Xinyue tells him her worries about her cousin as she disappeared for two days already. She wants him to ask Er Ye to go find her. Fo Ye agrees while laughing at her plan.
However, turns out that Er Ye can’t so Fo Ye investigates for her. He finds the hospital people suspicious and investigates more.
At the same time, a parcel with a bloody message asking for help is send back home.
From this, Fo Ye discovers that she may be in a small village close to where Japanese people are. Fo Ye leaves with Lieutenant to investigate more.
