Note: From here on out there are specific plot spoilers for Goodbye My Princess: Episode 38.
Li Chengyin tells Yong Niang to get Crown Princess to have a rest. He asks Pei Zhao if Zhao Shixuan is looking into the case. Pei Zhao reveals Zhao Shixuan is going to arrest Gao Zhen in Lin state after he got the evidence. But he worries that Zhao Shixuan will make Li Chengyin offend Empress and Gao Yuming because he didn’t report to him what he’s doing.
Li Chengyin thinks Zhao Shixuan thinks he and Gao Yuming are friends. He adds that he worried that he will help Gao Zhen, so he didn’t come to report it. He thinks he won’t get involved if he pretends not to know everything. Because Zhao Shixuan likes to get credit on his own.
Shi En reports to Li Chengyin that Se Se wants to see him. So Li Chengyin tells Pei Zhao to leave. Se Se brings the orange pastries to Li Chengyin. But he coughs when she opens the food box. She asks him where he went last night. He reveals he and her older brother looked into the case at Dali temple. He thinks he caught a cold there.
Se Se is surprised. Li Chengyin praises Zhao Shixuan for finding the murderer who killed Zhang San. But she thinks he helped his older brother. He thinks he should use Zhao Shixuan because he’s her older brother. She thanks him and leaves.
Se Se trips. Jin Er thinks Se Se worries about Li Chengyin’s illness, and offers to cook ginger soup for him. Se Se tells Jin Er that Li Chengyin lied because her older brother has looked into the case out of the city. She points out that he couldn’t encounter her older brother because he went to Dali temple.
Jin Er tells Se Se not to ask Li Chengyin about it because he’s crown prince. Se Se agrees to it and tells Jin Er to go to kitchen to cook a ginger soup for Li Chengyin. Jin Er walks in the kitchen and notes that A Zi is cooking ginger soup. A Zi tells Jin Er that Li Chengyin asked her to cook ginger soup for Crown Princess. Se Se hears it. She’s furious to leave.
