The episode begin in Bailu Village, Shenhua walking while talking the prophecy poem, Mingyang Lei tried to talk with Shenhua but Shenhua was so distant in her own thoughts that didn't noticed Mingyang there.

Welcome back. Our third episode this season is titled Yin-yang and dives deep into the mystery of these two mirrors seemingly so valuable they are worth killing over. Mirror, Mirror, on the Letter We open to Bailu Village and Shenhua is going about her chore routine while the Prophecy poem remains high on her mind.

Ryo demands Lan Di answer why he would commit this atrocity against his innocent father, and the man’s answer implies there is a darker side to Iwao’s past. Lan Di promises Ryo his father’s fate if he pursues the matter further, which causes an enraged Ryo to charge Lan Di and get put down by the villain once more. Of course, this extra...
