It’s raining. Ban Huai thinks Shen Yu wouldn’t come. But Madam Yin doesn’t think so, and tells her husband to go to take a look.
Madam Yin sees Shen Yu’s looks and lets him in. He asks her to marry Ban Hua to him. Ban Heng reminds Shen Yu that Ban Hua likes to beat people. He wants to introduce another girl to him. Shen Yu gets on knees and tells Ban Heng that he cannot accept his good intention. He adds that she loves everything about Ban Hua, and tells him not to wrong her.
Shen Yu tries to confesses his feelings again. But Ban Heng stops him. Madam Yin walks to Shen Yu and tells him that Emperor won’t marry Ban Hua to a normal person because he favors her so much. She tells him that she will marry her daughter to him if he gets first place in the palace examination. She gives the jade pendant to him as a keepsake.
Du Jiu tells Rong Xia that Ban family promised the proposal of Shen Yu. Ban Hua asks Madam Yin what she will do if Shen Yu gets the first place. Madam Yin thinks it’s a good thing and Shen Yu will help them block the disaster. Ban Huai laughs and thinks his wife is very smart. But Ban Hua is against it, and claims that she cannot flee alone.
Ban Hua wonders why everyone knows it. Ban Heng shows up while taking a drumstick. She chases him and makes him trip. She asks him if it was him. He admits it, and tells her that Rong Xia will be nervous after knowing it. She thinks he’s like Rong Xia who is hypocritical. She complains that he pretends to be sick.
Ban Heng tells Ban Hua that Rong Xia had feelings on her in the skating day. But he thought he isn’t match for her so that he refused to see her. Ban Hua thinks Ban Heng talked nonsense and he read too many novels. He gives her the latest novel. She tells him that she will study the novel, and robs his drumstick.
Rong Xia thinks Madam Yin gave Shen Yu a soft nail. Du Jiu disagrees and thinks Ban family doesn’t want to marry Ban Hua to Shen Yu because it’s very hard to get the first place.
