Xiao Qing says that the rooster chased Su Zhen when he saw her. She says that they were intent to look for Xu Xian but they were treated as thieves.
Jiao Rong thinks it’s a misunderstanding, and asks Su Zhen if they have eaten breakfast. Xiao Qing offers to help Jiao Rong prepare breakfast. Jiao Rong tells Xu Xian to lead Su Zhen walking around. Su Zhen thinks the painting on the wall is outstanding. Xu Xian says that it’s painted by him, and reveals Chang Sheng mocked at it.
Xu Xian tells Su Zhen that he will find a way to save Chang Sheng. But she tells him not to get involved, and thinks it’s handled by the government office. He tells her that his brother-in-law works for the government, and she gives him the powder. The power hurts his eyes, and he recognizes it’s Mugwort powder, which can deal with centipedes.
She asks him how he knew about centipedes, and he says that he will hand over the powder to Gong Fu. They go to have breakfast, and she is excited that it’s as tasty as when he made it last time. Jiao Rong realizes Su Zhen has eaten food that Xu Xian cooked, and Su Zhen mentions Xu Xian promised to cook it again for her.

But Xu Xian thinks she should’ve gotten off the boat at the pier if she came from Shu State. Xiao Qing explains that they traveled on land. Su Zhen adds that she felt the horse carriages are faster, so she didn’t come by boat. Xu Xian thinks Su Zhen must have seen and learned many things on the way, and asks her to talk about it.

Su Zhen asks Jing Song how he found them since they only moved there today.
Jing Song says that all rodents in the world are his eyes and ears, so Su Zhen asks him to find the centipede spirit. But Jing Song thinks they’re not its opponent, and asks her why she must risk her life since the world is so harsh towards demon kind. But she says that the cultivating is nothing if it cannot help people.
Xiao Qing agrees and tells Su Zhen to ignore Jing Song. Su Zhen flatters Jing Song that he really values loyalty, and thinks he absolutely won’t ignore the case. He promises to find the centipede spirit, but asks her to follow his lead after that. She gives Chang Sheng’s pearl to him, and asks him to find its owner.
Ms. Wu remembers she thought it would’ve been great if her daughter is a prince, and the kind wouldn’t ignore her like this. Her daughter wished to be with Ms. Wu forever. Ms. Wu asks her how she accomplished it. The girl said that she would keep the mermaid pearl with her always, and she would know it was her if she saw a child with the pearl.

Xiao Qing decides to make Fa Hai join them. The green snake climbs to Fa Hai’s staff and thinks he only knows lazing around and hiding. Fa Hai thinks Xiao Qing provokes him and wants to catch her.
Xu Xian thinks the killer raises many centipedes, and asks Gong Fu to take the powder. Gong Fu visits the embroidery workshop, and thinks the owner is the most suspicious. Ms. Wu tells the officers to stay and be centipede feed. Gong Fu wants to flee, but she catches him.

Su Zhen tells Ms. Wu that the pearl belongs to the kid she just killed. Ms. Wu tears up and wonders why she didn’t feel the pearl’s power. Su Zhen explains that the power of pearl was all used up to nurture a living soul so that it’s dark and not shining.
Ms. Wu opens the road of rebirth, and Jing Song tells Su Zhen that Chang Sheng cannot even enter the spirit lamp. Ms. Wu opens the Three Lives Rock, and read Chang Sheng’s past and present lives.
