Jin Guangyao and Lan Xichen discuss about the connection between the mysterious hand and Ghost General. Back in the abandoned residence, Wei Wuxian regains Wen Ning’s consciousness and asks about what happened. However, Wen Ning cannot remember much about his days of being locked up, except the presence of Jin Guangshan and two other people. Wei Wuxian then faints from the effects of the cursed marks and remembers his time in Yiling 15 years ago. Wei Wuxian finds Wen Yuan with Lan Wangji and decides to enjoy a meal with the latter. Although Lan Wangji tries to warn him of the consequences of demonic cultivation, Wei Wuxian reassures that he will not be harmed. Suddenly, trouble arises in the Burial Mound and they rush back to find Wen Ning going berserk. They work together to suppress Wen Ning and successfully regain his consciousness. Wei Wuxian then sends Lan Wangji off and the two share another conversation about Wei Wuxian’s decisions. The latter is unwilling to give up on the Wen Remnants but is determined not to lose control, and hence the two part ways. One year later, Jin Zixun ambushes Wei Wuxian and Wen Ning on Qiongqi Way while they are on their way to Jin Ling’s one-month anniversary.
