King Rouge: Episode 13 recap (Updated)

Editor: This post was originally published on May 15, 2015. I updated the post to include explanation of many scenes which I did not understand. The explanations for those scenes were contributed by Tonyee. Thank you very much!
Towards the end of Episode 12 Aunt Gui caught Mad Chopper wandering inside the Xinyi office. I think Mad Chopper knows that Aunt Gui is asleep inside the office, he is also aware when Aunt Gui woke up. I do not know yet his reasons for pretending not to be aware. Maybe he wants to make Aunt Gui underestimate his abilities?
In any case, after Aunt Gui assured herself that Mad Chopper seems to be looking (with his hands) for something inside the office, she got up and accused Mad Chopper of trying to steal something. She was about to bring Mad Chopper to Ding Bang when Lei-er arrived and convinced Aunt Gui that Mad Chopper just got lost on his way back from the latrine to the kitchen.

Lei-er asks Mad Chopper how he manages to cook when he is blind. Mad Chopper says cooking does not require eyes, it rather depends on the feeling with your hands, listening with your ears, smelling with your nose and tasting with your mouth. He proceeds to show Lei-er how he does all that. Lei-er is impressed by his skill. He did not really teach Lei-er how to cook, he just showed her his cooking skill.

King Rouge Ep 13-2

When Mad Chopper finishes cooking the dish, Lei-er tastes it. The boy who arrived with Mad Chopper watches the 2 adults forlornly from the kitchen doorway.

King Rouge Ep 13-3

Lei-er brings food to Wu Kui, but Wu Kui is not in the mood for anything. Wu Kui is looking up at the sky, wondering why it doesn’t rain. If it rains then there may be thunder, and then… Lei-er reminds him of the incident yesterday, saying that it is lucky that she was there. Wu Kui replies that he would have preferred that she wasn’t there at that time.

King Rouge Ep 13-4

Lei-er senses that Wu Kui is worried about something, and asks if it’s about the tournament tomorrow. Wu Kui says he really doesn’t want to go to the tournament, and he can’t imagine how he will fare on the stage. Lei-er says that he has nothing to worry about since he is very intelligent, knows everything and can do everything. When she was still practicing how to do the basic stuff, he can already fly onto walls. Even if he does not have his strong martial arts skills, he is already so much better than those people who only know how to fight because of his mouth (speaking skills) and his brain. Something clicks in Wu Kui’s mind on hearing her speech, and he rewards Lei-er by feeding her.

King Rouge Ep 13-5 King Rouge Ep 13-6

 The tournament finally begins.
King Rouge Ep 13-7 King Rouge Ep 13-8
The tournament is already underway when Moya and her father arrive. Ding Bang and Wu Kui welcome father and daughter. Moya says Xinyi has saved them many times, even clearing her name in the opium matter, so they need not be overly courteous. She is just curious about the tournament, thus she asked her father, the Prince, to bring her to tournament. The Xiaos invite father and daughter to the VIP seats. Chuzi calls out to Moya and her father but they both ignore him.

King Rouge Ep 13-9

As Ding Bang and Wu Kui escort Moya and her father to their seat, Lei-er sees Dumb Wolf among the crowd. She tries to catch him but fails.

King Rouge Ep 13-10

The tournament resumes once the newly-arrived visitors are seated. Ding Bang and Wu Kui watch the fighters from the sidelines. Wu Kui listens intently to his father’s words. Ding Bang tells Wu Kui that one of the fighters on stage at that moment is Zhao Zhanggui, the head of Tongsheng Escort Agency. Ding Bang tells Wu Kui not to look down on Tongsheng Escort just because it is of small size because Zhao is one of the best from Qingcheng School (a famous martial arts school). Ding Bang thinks that Zhao’s skills are about the same as Hu Da Cheng’s, and Ding Bang surmises that Wu Kui will be facing off with either Zhao or Da Cheng in the final round.

King Rouge Ep 13-11

Da Cheng is called on to the platform for his turn to face-off with another fighter. Da Cheng defeats his opponent. Next, Wu Kui is called on to the platform to face-off with Da Cheng. As Wu Kui is about to go up the platform, Dumb Wolf returns to watch.

King Rouge Ep 13-1

Before they could begin their face-off, Wu Kui said some polite words to Dacheng, then launch into his own intricate martial arts moves.

King Rouge Ep 13-12

Moya tells her father: “See? Wu Kui’s martial arts skills are really good.” Ding Bang tells himself that Wu Kui’s moves can only deceive the layman, although Wu Kui’s moves look good, there’s no power in it at all. He wonders what Wu Kui is up to. Wu Kui ends his moves by showing people the flies he caught with his bare hand.
King Rouge Ep 13-13In flashback we are shown Wu Kui capturing flies with his bare hands in the kitchen prior to the tournament. Of course it is easier to capture the flies in the kitchen since there are raw meat hanging there which attracted the flies.

King Rouge Ep 13-14 King Rouge Ep 13-15

The audience are amazed, saying that the moves did not look strong, but no one thought that he could have caught flies with it, saying that Wu Kui deserves his reputation. Da Cheng is about to begin their face-off but Wu Kui stops him.

King Rouge Ep 13-16

Wu Kui analyzes what Da Cheng’s moves will be and then predicts how he will respond to Da Cheng’s moves. So it becomes a verbal martial arts fight. Da Cheng cannot win over Wu Kui’s analysis and concedes defeat.
So the strategy Wu Kui developed after hearing Lei-er’s words earlier is to play to his strengths. Wu Kui is very intelligent, a good strategist and is a very good talker, so he used his brains and his speaking skills to win over his opponent.

King Rouge Ep 13-17 King Rouge Ep 13-18 King Rouge Ep 13-19 King Rouge Ep 13-20 King Rouge Ep 13-21 King Rouge Ep 13-22 King Rouge Ep 13-23

Lei-er keeps cheering for Wu Kui which seems to piss off Dumb Wolf. Chuzi does not understand what happened at all. He thus said mockingly that Wu Kui has the best martial arts skills of all, and can win even without fighting. Those who can win by talking alone is really the best of the best fighters. He challenges the crowd, asking if there is anyone there who would not accept such a result.
One fighter comes up. He is Zhao Zhanggui from Tongsheng (the one Ding Bang talked about to Wu Kui earlier.) Zhao tells Wu Kui that Da Cheng admitted defeat without even a fight because Wu Kui is Da Cheng’s boss, thus the result was unfair. Wu Kui says that everyone has seen the competition, there’s nothing unfair about it, and asks Zhao to explain himself more clearly.  Zhao declines to explain further, he just dares Wu Kui to an actual fight rather than just mere talk. The crowd is itching for a real fight too, and Wu Kui is forced to fight him.
King Rouge Ep 13-24 King Rouge Ep 13-25 King Rouge Ep 13-26
They begin to fight. Wu Kui wonders to himself if his 3 moves can save him. He is determined not to lose in front of Moya, and puts in his all. Wu Kui manages to knock Zhao off his feet on his third move.

King Rouge Ep 13-30

Zhao is able to stand up again, albeit a bit wobbly on his feet. Wu Kui is feeling doomed because he has already spent his energy on his third move. Zhao rushes at Wu Kui, but Wu Kui is able to evade him. Zhao falls from the platform, but Lei-er helps him to get back on the platform. Zhao gets up and faces Wu Kui again. Wu Kui prepares for the worst.
Ding Bang wonders to himself why Wu Kui is not retaliating.Wu Kui and Zhao are about to resume fighting again when Ding Bang intervenes.
Ding Bang tells Zhao that he better stop fighting or else he would suffer grave injury. Ding Bang tells Zhao he finally understands Wu Kui’s thinking, saying that Wu Kui does not wish to fight with Zhao further because Wu Kui doesn’t want to harm anyone.
Ding Bang says that as escorts the most important thing is not about competing to see who is the best, but about maintaining a harmonious relationship with people so that they can have safe trips. The tournament is just a practice among colleagues, not a fight to the death.
King Rouge Ep 13-27 Wu Kui says that he knows that Zhao is from Qingcheng School, so his skills are more suitable for fighting in water, which is not how the tournament is set today. What Wu Kui means is that Zhao’s martial arts skills are not inferior, just that today’s setting is adverse to him. If they continue to fight, Zhao would definitely be harmed, which Wu Kui would feel sorry about, and it’s also against the spirit of the tournament since it is a friendship-building event. King Rouge Ep 13-28
Zhao is impressed by how considerate Wu Kui is, and concedes defeat. (Therefore, Wu Kui wins by talking again. 😀 )King Rouge Ep 13-31 King Rouge Ep 13-32
The half-bald man praises Wu Kui, saying that he is not only skilled in martial arts, but can gain people’s hearts with his good virtue, which is more difficult.

King Rouge Ep 13-33

At the feast afterwards, Ding Bang announces that he is retiring and will pass on his leadership to Wu Kui. Everyone applauds except for Chuzi.
King Rouge Ep 13-29
Later, Moya waits for Wu Kui in the  courtyard. However, Chuzi is the one who shows up. Chuzi tries to strike up a conversation with Moya. He asks if she is annoyed by the attitude of Xinyi’s people as well, and invites her out for food. He tries to take her hand but Moya is offended by his presumptuousness. Chuzi says Moya’s mum has already promised to marry her to him, to which Moya replies that her mum died 10 years ago. 😀

King Rouge Ep 13-34

Wu Kui arrives and sees them. Wu Kui asks why Chuzi outside, and invites him back to the feast. Moya is happy to find an excuse to escape from Chuzi and holds Wu Kui’s hand.

King Rouge Ep 13-58

Chuzi tells Wu Kui that he shouldn’t feel so full of himself just because he has good martial arts skills. Chuzi says he has guns which are more powerful than any martial arts. Chuzi’s words triggered something in Wu Kui’s mind.

King Rouge Ep 13-60

Wu Kui tells himself that as long as he has guns he need not worry about his martial arts skills.

King Rouge Ep 13-61

Moya says that guns are slow. With the time needed to load the bullet and light the gunpowder Wu Kui would already be able to finish off Chuzi. After Wu Kui and Moya left, Chuzi vows to kill Wu Kui someday for taking his woman and making him lose face.
Wu Kui and Moya go to Wu Kui’s quarters. While Moya is looking around with interest, Wu Kui’s mind is still preoccupied.

King Rouge Ep 13-35 King Rouge Ep 13-36

Moya asks Wu Kui if he is still thinking about what Chuzi said earlier. Wu Kui says of course not, not after she told off Chuzi about the disadvantages of guns. Wu Kui praises Moya, saying that although she’s not a fighter herself, she has good insights. However, Wu Kui goes on to say that guns are not as bad as she thinks, the guns he saw in Guangzhou…
Moya is annoyed, she asks Wu Kui if he took her to his quarters just to tell her how she was wrong about things. Wu kui apologizes immediately and repeatedly, making Moya smile. (Awww, Wu Kui is so cute.)
Moya teases him, saying how could the hero of the tournament become like this (acting childishly and begging for forgiveness). Wu Kui says only Moya can see this side of him.

King Rouge Ep 13-37

Then Wu Kui shows off to Moya the treasures he accumulated during his time in Foshan, Guangzhou.  He shows her some colored bowls. He also shows her the coffee beans and the coffee grinder, he offers to make her coffee but Moya declines.

King Rouge Ep 13-38

Wu Kui notices Moya fanning herself with her handkerchief. He sits her down, then shows her his mechanical fan and operates it for her. Moya asks how come he has so many interesting things, and says it’s good to be with him, since she need not think about anything and there’s only happiness. The fan handle breaks, and Moya offers him her handkerchief. Wu Kui hesitates to use it.

King Rouge Ep 13-39

Moya notices the gramophone. Wu Kui puts on a record. When the music begins to play, Moya becomes sad. Moya says the last time she listened to a gramophone was when she was in Beijing (when she was still a real princess.) In the blink of an eye, everything was gone. Wu Kui says: “Didn’t you just say that when you are with me, you don’t need to think of anything, and there is only happiness? I won’t allow you to think of those unhappy things.”
Wu Kui invites Moya to dance with him. Moya says she does not know how to dance western dances. Wu Kui teaches her.
King Rouge Ep 13-41King Rouge Ep 13-59King Rouge Ep 13-62
Dumb Wolf returns to the lair. Feng Lang asks where Dumb Wolf has gone. He says that Dumb Wolf is just like his dad, disappearing without a word. If not for him noticing, they would not even be able to find his body. Feng Lang guesses that Dumb Wolf has gone to the tournament, and says that there’s no need to keep that a secret, unless he went there to find the girl (referring to Lei-er.) Dumb Wolf is embarrassed. Feng Lang asks Dumb Wolf about Wu Kui’s martial arts skills. Dumb Wolf says it’s unfathomable (meaning he still does not know whether Wu Kui is good or not).

King Rouge Ep 13-63

At Xinyi, Wu Kui is making plans for the company in his quarters. Aunt Gui arrives bearing soup, saying that Wu Kui has gotten thinner after all those exhausting days practicing in private without having her soup. Wu Kui says that practicing was not too bad, the really bad thing was how he missed her soup. Aunt Gui teases him for having such a sweet mouth.
Aunt Gui asks Wu Kui what he’s doing. Wu Kui replies that time has changed and Xinyi must change too. He is writing a new proposal for the operation of Xinyi. Aunt Gui says he is now really looking the part of the leader of Xinyi, and says she will definitely support his plan (but only if she knows how much it will cost… 😀 )
King Rouge Ep 13-64King Rouge Ep 13-42
Aunt Gui leaves Wu Kui’s room and sees Ding Bang in the courtyard.  She tells him that Wu Kui is serious about his upcoming appointment as leader of Xinyi, and is spending the night making a proposal. She encourages him to go inside Wu Kui’s room to see it for himself. Ding Bang says that Wui Kui will never grow up if he keeps watching his back, and refuses to go inside Wu Kui’s room. But after Aunt Gui has left, his curiosity got the better of him and he eavesdrops outside Wu Kui’s room.
King Rouge Ep 13-43 King Rouge Ep 13-44
Wu Kui is writing a proposal for the use of guns at Xinyi. He says to himself that once they have guns, then his martial arts skill won’t be a problem anymore.
King Rouge Ep 13-45
Chuzi asks Concubine to get him some guns, saying that’s the way they can overpower Xinyi. Concubine says she does not have the money. But she points to the people outside, saying aren’t those all moving money bags? (Basically, she is telling Chuzi to threaten people with his gun and get money from them.) Chuzi is too embarrassed to tell her that he has lost his gun (during the encounter with the Wolf bandits at Hero’s Cliff in an earlier episode.)
King Rouge Ep 13-46
It is the beginning of another day. Lei-er arrives at Xinyi. While looking at the Xinyi flag Lei-er says loudly to herself that she will be a proper escort someday. Wu Kui surprises her by tapping her on the shoulder, teasing her that she cannot be an escort if she is so unaware of her surroundings.
Lei-er notes how bright Wu Kui is, saying he indeed deserves to be the winner of the tournament. Wu Kui says of course, and that he learnt something from the tournament – if he thinks earnestly for a solution, there is nothing in the world that cannot be solved.
Lei-er asks if it is like saying that if she really wants to be an escort, she will become one someday. Wu Kui concurs, saying that after the tournament yesterday, he realized that he was born to run an escort agency. He thought hard throughtout the night to come up with the perfect way to revolutionize Xinyi. Once the reform goes through, Xinyi will be completely different from how it is at present. Under his management, Xinyi will definitely become the top escort agency in the country. Lei-er tells him to discuss it with his father quickly then.
King Rouge Ep 13-47
An escort arrives, and cheekily praises Wu Kui for his martial arts skills, saying that even people from outside Xinyi are saying how good he is. This unnerves Wu Kui, and he scolds the escort for arriving late and being unkempt. He orders him to go in and start practicing immediately. After the escort goes in, Lei-er says she has never seen Wu Kui talking like that to an escort. Wu Kui explains that since he’s going to become the leader of Xinyi, he has to impose discipline. Lei-er says in that case she better also go practice then, and goes in. After Lei-er has gone in, Wu Kui tells  himself that he should properly reorganize Xinyi and make it into a famous escort agency.
King Rouge Ep 13-48
Lei-er reaches the courtyard, and is dumbfounded to see Aunt Gui talking to Dumb Wolf.

King Rouge Ep 13-49

Aunt Gui is telling Dumb Wolf about the rules in Xinyi, also about meals, pay, sick leave and so forth. Lei-er approaches and tells Aunt Gui that the guy cannot do it (implying that he cannot withstand Aunt Gui’s harsh conditions.)
Aunt Gui loudly tells Lei-er that Dumb Wolf is strong and obedient. Then in a whisper, she adds that most importantly this guy does not mind how much he is being paid, and it’s a bargain that they cannot miss. Lei-er keeps protesting but Aunt Gui says it’s settled. Aunt Gui tells Dumb Wolf to start work immediately. She asks his name, and Dumb Wolf says his name is Ah Liang (sounds similar to “Ya Lang” the Chinese for Dumb Wolf.) After Dumb Wolf has left, Aunt Gui tells Lei-er off, saying that she never treats her workmen badly.
Lei-er follows Dumb Wolf. Lei-er asks Dumb Wolf what he is doing at Xinyi. He replies that he came to Xinyi to work. She doesn’t believe him. Dumb Wolf says that he’s there to see her. Lei-er is surprised, saying that she does not believe him, and asks if he is planning something bad against Xinyi.
Dumb Wolf says no. Lei-er tells him to go back to his lair immediately. Dumb Wolf asks “then you are telling me to go back to being a bandit? You once told me to be a good person, and now you are stopping me from walking the righteous way?”
Lei-er does not know how to respond to that, and asks him again if he really has no bad intentions towards Xinyi. Dumb Wolf swears that he has none. Lei-er says she will believe him this time, and says it’s a good thing that he can go back to the right path. Dumb Wolf asks if she will keep his identity. Lei-er says that since Dumb Wolf really wants to be a good person, she will not tell anyone about his identity. But if he does anything bad, she will be the first person to catch him out.
Da Cheng calls her. Lei-er pretends to give instructions to Dumb Wolf. Da Cheng tells her off for being lazy since Wu Kui told him that Lei-er went practicing. Lei-er explains that she is just greeting the new worker. Da Cheng takes Lei-er away to practice.
King Rouge Ep 13-50
Wu Kui presents his proposal to his father. Ding Bang says that however times may have changed, guns are not as practical as martial arts skills especially for the escorting business. Ding Bang explains that whenever escorts sense something wrong, they would have to act without any delay. They won’t have the time to put in bullets, light the gunpowder and so forth. He says that Wu Kui will understand what he is saying once he goes on a few more escorting missions, and will realize that guns are just not practical.

King Rouge Ep 13-51

One thought on “King Rouge: Episode 13 recap (Updated)

  1. Mad Chopper teaching Leier
    Leier ask how he manages to cook when he’s blind. Mad Chopper said cooking do no require eyes, it rather depend on the touching of the hands, listening with your ears, smelling with your nose and tasting with your mouth. He proceeds to show Leier how he does all that. Leier is impressed by his skill. (He did not really teach Leier how to cook, just showing her his skill)

    When Leier brings food to Wu Kui
    Wu Kui was looking up at the sky, wondering why it doesn’t rain. If it rain then there may be thunder, and then… Leier reminds him of the incident yesterday, saying that it’s lucky that she was there. Wu Kui replies that he would rather her not be there then.

    Leier senses that Wu Kui is worried about something, and asks if it’s about the tournament tomorrow. Wu Kui said he really doesn’t want to go to the tournament, and he can’t imagine how he will fare on the stage. Leier said that he has nothing to worry about, since he’s so intelligent, know everything and can do everything. When she was still practicing how to do the basic stuff, he can already fly onto walls. Even if he doesn’t have his strong martial arts skills, he is already so much better than those people who only knowing how to fight, because of his mouth (speaking skills) and his brain. Something clicks in Wu Kui on hearing her speech, and he rewards Leier by feeding her.

    Moya speech
    Moya said Xinyi has save them many times, even clearing her name in the opium matter, and they need not be overly courteous. She is just curious about the tournament, thus she asked the Prince to bring her here. They are invited to the VIP seats.

    Dingbang talking to Wu Kui
    Dingbang said that the person on stage is the head from Tongsheng Escort Zhao Zhanggui, telling him not to look down on Tongsheng Escort just because it is of small size, as Zhao is one of the best from Qingcheng School (a famous martial arts school). His skill is about the same as Hu Dacheng, and Dinging surmise that the final combatants for Wu Kui will be either him or Da Cheng.

    Fight with Dacheng
    Wu Kui just said some polite words to Dacheng, then launch into his own moves. Moya tells her father that see, Wu Kui’s martial arts skill is really good. Dingbang said his moves can only deceive the layman, although it looks good but there’s no power in it at all. He wonders what’s Wu Kui is up to. Then Wu Kui stops to show people the flies he caught. The Audience are amazed, saying that the moves did not look strong, but no one thought that he could have caught flies with it, saying that Wu Kui deserve his reputation.

    Dating wants to start the face off, but Wu Kui stops him, analyzes his moves and tell him how he would respond. So it becomes a verbal martial arts fight. Dacheng cannot win Wu Kui’s analysis and concedes defeat.

    Chuzi
    Chuzi does not understand what happened at all. He thus said mockingly that Wu Kui has the best martial arts skills of all, and can win without even fighting. Those who can win by talking alone is really the best of the best fighters. He challenged the crowd asking if anyone dare not to accept such result.

    One fighter came up , who is Zhao Zhanggui from Tongsheng. He said that Dacheng admitted defeat without even a fight because he is Dacheng’s boss, and the result was unfair. Wu Kui said everyone has seen the competition, there’s nothing unfair about it, and asked him to explain more clearly. Zhao decline, daring him to an actual fight rather than just mere talk. The crowd is itching for a real fight too, and Wu Kui is forced to fight him. Wu Kui wonder to himself if his 3 moves can safe him. He is determined not to lose before Moya, and put in his all. Yet after Zhao stands up again after pushed down by his third move. Wu Kui is feeling doomed, and Dingbang wonders why wasn’t Wu Kui retaliating. He thus interfered, telling Zhao that he better stops fighting or else he would suffered grave injury. He said he finally understands Wu Kui’s thinking, saying that he doesn’t not wish to fight further because he doesn’t want to harm anyone. He said as escorts, the most important thing is not about competing to see who is the best, but about maintaining a harmonious relationship with people so that they can have safe trips. The tournament is just a practice among colleagues, not a fight to the death.

    Wu Kui said Zhao is from Qingcheng, his skills is more suitable for fighting in water, which is not how the tournament is set today. (Thus it’s not that his martial arts is inferior, just that today’s setting is adverse to him) If they continue to fight, Zhao would definitely be harmed, which Wu Kui would feel sorry about, and it’s also against the spirit of the tournament as a friendship building event. Zhao was impressed by how considerate Wu Kui is, and concedes defeat. (So Wu Kui won by talking again XP)

    The half-bald man praise Wu Kui, saying that he is not only skilled in martial arts, but can gain people hearts with his good virtue, which is more difficult.

    At the feast
    Dinging announces that he is retiring and will pass on his leadership to Wu Kui.

    At the courtyard
    Chuzi tries to strike up conversation with Moya, asking if she is annoyed by the attitude of the Xinyi’s people as well, and invite her out for food. He tries to take her hand but Moya was offended. Chuzi said her mum has already promised to marry her to him, to which Moya replies that her mum has died 10 years ago (lol).

    Wu Kui saw them and asks why is Chuzi here, and inviting him back to the feast. Moya is happy to find an excuse to escape from Chuzi and hold Wu Kui’s hand. Choose said that Wu Kui shouldn’t feel so full of himself just because he has good martial arts. Choose said he has guns. which is much stronger than any martial arts. This reminds Wu Kui that as long as he get some guns, he need not worry about his martial art skill. Moya said that guns are slow with the time needed for him to load bullet and light the gunpowder, Wu Kui would already be able to finish him. After they left, Chuzi vows to kill Wu Kui someday for taking his woman and making him lose face.

    At Wu Kui’s quarter
    Moya asks if Wu Kui is still thinking about what Chuzi said. Wu Kui said of course not, not after you told him off about the disadvantages of guns. He praises Moya, saying that although she’s not a fighter herself, she has good insights. However He went on to say that guns are not as bad as she think, the guns he saw in Guangzhou… then Moya was annoyed, asking if he took her here just to tell her how she was wrong about things. Wu kui apologize immediately and repeatedly, making Moya smile. Moya tease him, saying how could the hero at the tournament become like this (acting childishly and begging for forgiveness).

    Wu Kui then shows Moya his treasure, offering to make her coffee but Moya declines. Seeing that Moya feels hot, he shows her the mechanical fan and operates it for her. Moya asks how come he has so many interesting things, and says it’s good to be with him, since she need not think about anything and there’s only happiness. The fan handle breaks, and Moya offers him her handkerchief.

Wu Kui says that didn’t you just said that when you are with me, you don’t need to think of anything, and there is only happiness? I won’t allow you to think of those unhappy things. May I invite you for a dance? Moya says she does not know how to dance western dance. Wu Kui teaches her.

    Dumb Wolf lair
    Feng Lang ask where Dumb wolf has gone. He says that Dumb wolf is just like his dad, disappearing without a word. If not for him noticing, they would not even be able to find his body. Feng Lang guess that he has gone to the tournament, and say that there’s no need to keep that a secret, unless he’s there to find the girl. Dumb wolf is embarrassed. Feng Lang asks about the martial arts skill of Wu Kui, Dumb Wolf says it’s unfathomable (he still don’t know whether Wu Kui is good or not).

    At Xinyi
    Aunt Gui bring Wu Kui soup, saying that he has gotten thinner after all those exhausting days practicing in private, without having her soup.

Aunt Gui said he is now really looking the part of the leader of Xinyi, and says she would definitely support his plan (but only if she know how expensive it will be…)

    Aunt Gui met Dingbang outside, and tell him about how Wu Kui is serious about his upcoming appointment as leader of Xinyi, and is spending the night making a proposal. She ask him to go to his room to see it for himself. Dingbang said that Wui Kui will never grow up if he keeps watch his back, and refuse. But after Aunt Gui left his curiosity got the better of him and he go eavesdropping.

    Wu Kui is writing a proposal for the use of guns at the escort. He says to himself that once they have guns, then his martial arts skill won’t be a problem anymore.

    Chuzi and Concubine
    Chuzi is asking concubine to get him some guns, saying that’s the way how they can overpower Xinyi. Concubine said she does not have the money. But she points to the people outside, saying aren’t those all moving money bags. Basically she tells Chuzi to threaten people with his only gun and get money from them. Choose was too embarrassed to tell her that he has lost his gun.

    Outside Xinyi
    Leier says to herself that she will be a proper escort someday. Wu Kui surprises her by tapping her on the shoulder, teasing her that she cannot be an escort if she is so unaware of her surroundings. Leier notes how bright Wu Kui is, saying he indeed deserve to be the winner of the tournament. Wu Kui says of course, and that he learnt something from the tournament – if he think earnestly for solution, there is nothing in the world that cannot be solved. Leier say is it like if she really want to be an escort, she will become one someday. Wu Kui concurs, saying that after the tournament yesterday, he realizes that he is born to run an escort agency. He think hard thoughtout the night, and think of a perfect way to revolutionize Xinyi. Once the reform goes thorough, Xinyi will be completely different from now. Under his management, Xinyi will definitely become the top escort agency in the country. Leier tell him to discuss it with Dingbang quickly about it then.

    An escort arrive, and cheekily praise Wu Kui for his martial arts skill, saying that even people from outside Xinyi are saying how good he is.

Leier said in that case she better also go practise then, and goes in. Leier goes in. Wu Kui said to himself that he should properly reorganize Xinyi and make it into a famous escort agency.

    Inside Xinyu
    Aunt Gui tells Dumb wolf about the rules in Xinyi, about meals, pay, sick leave and so forth. Leier saw them and tells Aunt Gui that they he cannot do it (implying that he cannot withstand Aunt Gui’s harsh condition). Aunt Gui tells Leier that Dumb wolf is strong, obedient, (in a whisper) and most importantly does not mind how much he’s paid, and it’s a bargain that they cannot miss. Leier keeps protesting but Aunt Gui says it’s settled, telling Dumb Wolf to start work immediately. She asks his name, and Dumb wolf said his name is Ah Liang (sounds similar to Dumb wolf “Ya Lang”) Aunt Gui tells Leier off, saying that she never treats her workman badly.

    Leier talk with Dumb wolf
    Leier asks Dumb Wolf why he is here. He said he came here to work, she says who you are trying to deceive. Dumb Wolf then says he’s here to see her. Leier is shocked, saying that she does not believe him, and ask if he is planning something bad against Xinyi. Dumb Wolf denies. Leier tells him to go back to his lair immediately. Dumb Wolf says then you are telling me to go back to be a bandit? You once told me to be a good person, and now you are stopping me from walking the righteous way? Leier does not know how to respond to that, and ask him again if he really has no bad intention towards Xinyi. Dumb Wolf swear that he has none. Leier says she will believe him for this once, and says it’s a good thing that he can go back to the right path. Dumb wolf ask then what about my identity. Leier says that since Dumb wolf really want to be a good person, she would not tell anyone about his identity. But if he does anything bad, she will be the first person to catch him out.

    Da Cheng calls her. Leier pretends to give instruction to Dumb wolf. Da Cheng tells her off for being lazy, since Wu Kui told him that Leier went practicing. Leier explains that she is just greeting the new worker. Da Cheng takes Leier away to practise.

    At Dingbang office
    Ding bang says that however times change, guns are anyhow not as practical as the martial arts skill in their own hands. Especially for escorts, whenever they sense something wrong, they would have to act without any delay. They won’t have the time to put in bullets, light the gunpowder and so forth. He says that Wu Kui will understand once he go on a few more mission, and will realize that guns are just not practical.
