Jin Ling wakes up in the inn and vaguely recalls last night's events. On the other hand, Jiang Cheng and Wei Wuxian argue about the latter's misdeeds. However, Wen Ning suddenly appears to protect Wei Wuxian and the three fight outside. Wei Wuxian chases Wen Ning away to prevent him from losing control and runs away too. He gets chased by Fairy and enters an abandoned residence to hide from it. Jin Ling shows up and the two talk for a bit. When he says that Jiang Cheng hates Wei Wuxian to the bones, Wei Wuxian reminiscences about his childhood with Jiang Cheng and Jiang Yanli. He also apologises to Jin Ling about his actions on Mt. Dafan before Jin Ling leaves. Wen Ning returns to meet Wei Wuxian and the latter starts to remember the time when he protected the Wen sect remnants from everyone else and how he was constantly forced to hand over the Stygian Tiger Seal. Wei WuXian also looks into Wen Ning's memories and discovers that the Jin Sect and Lan Sect had worked together during the past years.
