Ye Hua approaches Zhe Yan about Bai Qian's past again. Zhe Yan comes clean that he lied last time. Bai Qian wasn't in a coma 300 year ago. She went missing. She suddenly reappeared again one day, injured and heart broken.
"So that's when you gave her the forgetting potion?" Ye Hua asked eagerly.
"No, she asked for it specifically" Zhe Yan said, making it clear it was Bai Qian's decision to forget.
Xuan Nu knocks out a prison guard and makes her escape. After all she's done, she still decides to go back to Qing Qiu first to find her mother. But she overhears her mother saying she regretted giving birth to Xuan Nu because of all the bad things she's done.
Li Jing personally goes to find Bai Qian. Ye Hua is present and tries to give off the "I trust you" vibe but can't help and also give her a few words of advice on breaking it off the Li Jing. Bai Qian says " Sounds like you have a lot of experience in aspect." lol.
Li Jing tries to ask Bai Qian for forgiveness but she clearly tells him their relationship is over. She did have feelings for him all those years ago but when she needed him the most, he let her down in the cruellest way.
Ye Hua takes Bai Qian to his palace so she can use Jiu Chong Tian, a pool with healing properties so she can heal her wounds quicker. Bai Qian comments on how dim his entire palace is. Ye Hua tells her it's because her eyes are sensitive so he purposely dimmed the place.
Su Jin is in a fit again when she hears Bai Qian is allowed to live in "Ye Lan Fang Hua," the palace wing that Su Su used to live in. Ever since Su Su died, Ye Hua hasn't let anyone step one foot near it.
Little Dough is ecstatic to see his mom home and asks for a hug. But with her wounds she can't, so Bai Qian tells him she's not feeling to well. Little Dough automatically thinks she's pregnant. He read it in a book, when a woman is pregnant she can't play with little children or else it will be bad for the fetus. And he's really glad she's going to give him a sibling, then he won't be the youngest anymore. Riding the wave his son started, Ye Hua take the opportunity to convince Bai Qian they should immediately try hard for one after their wedding. "Only if you bear the child" Bai Qian responds, easily stopping the father and son from getting ahead of themselves lol.
Alone, Ye Hua promises that even if she loves Mo Yuan, he will love her all the same and try to convince Bai Qian he is the man for her.
Su Jin, deeply jealous, convinces Miao Qing, (the princess from Dong Hai who fell in love with Ye Hua's handsome face and became a maid in Dong Hua's palace) to drug Ye Hua's soup. But Ye Hua easily sees through it and demands to know where she got the drugs from. Crying, Miao Qing is about to tell Ye Hua everything. Su Jin, realizing she's about to be found out, jumps in to change the subject and "plead" for Miao Qing.
Bai Qian, walks by outside of Ye Hua's study, hears Miao Qing crying and thinks that Ye Hua is cheating with a maid. Even though he is stoic and proper in front of everyone, he does so much paper work by himself. And all the maids here are exceptionally beautiful. (She's probably still scarred from that time she walked in on Li Jing). She turns around and decides it best to walk away but Ye Hua hears her and tells her to come into the study.
Su Jin almost has a heart attack when she sees Bai Qian and recognizes her as Su Su. Bai Qian doesn't know her but comments that she has a beautiful set of eyes. Desperately, Miao Qing even asks Bai Qian for help. Bai Qian reasons that the situation isn't all Miao Qing's fault. Ye Hua knew Miao Qing liked him, and still let her into his palace. But as a word of advice, she tells Miao Qing it's best for her to return to Dong Hai. Ye Hua takes the chance to tell both Miao Qing and Su Jin, "Bai Qian is his one and only wife, if she said Miao Qing should leave then it will be so."
Su Jin, after seeing Bai Qian has a minor freak out moment. Bai Qian looks exactly like Su Su, the "horrid" woman she thought was finally gone is back.
Ye Hua realizes Bai Qian made her decision from rational thinking and nothing else. He called her into his study with hopes that Bai Qian would get jealous but that wasn't the case and he gets upset. Perhaps she won't have room in her heart for anyone else besides Mo Yuan.
Urgently, a little maid, Nai Nai carries Little Dough to Bai Qian. Little Dough hasn't woken up since yesterday, he's still drunk (from drinking too much wine at the healing pool). Bai Qian simply tells her to not worry, he'll just sleep it off and will be fine later.
Bai Qian stays in Ye Hua's palace for a few days. She over hears a pair of Su Jin's maids talk her about her saying she was going to bully Su Jin and that she was an old fox that used her powers to make Ye Hua so madly in love with her. Bai Qian doesn't confront them but does admit that it's not nice to hear. She comments that their jobs must be too easy for them to have time to gossip, perhaps it's better to have them do something that requires more effort. Understanding her meaning, Bai Qian's maids quickly go to take care of the gossipy maids.
Ye Hua finds Little dough still asleep from drinking too much wine. Bai Qian tells him to calm down, when she was young, she would sleep for 4 or 5 days straight after a liquor binge. Worriedly he tells Bai Qian that she's only saying that because Little Dough isn't her real son. if he was, she would be more worried. Still burnt from the gossipy two maids, Bai Qian says Little Dough isn't her son, he should let Su Jin take care of Little Dough since she's so good and nice.
Overly drunk one night, Bai Qian finally remembers her mortal life as Su Su. From the time she was framed into losing her eyes to the time she jumped into Ju Xian Tai.
At first Bai Qian wallows over her mortal life which was filled with sadness and suffering but then she remembers, first things first, she's going to get her back her eyes.
Feng Jiu (her niece) adorably follows after her. If her aunt is going for a fight, she needs to go as back up.
When going into a fight, one needs to have the correct weapon. Bai Qian makes a quick stop to summon her fan out of the pond she dropped it into (she dropped the fan in a while back because she was worried Ye Hua would find out she hid Mo Yuan in her fox cave).
She charges into Feng Jiu Chong Tian (the sky Ye Hua is crown prince of and where Su Jin lives). The guards stop her but upon hearing she's the empress of Qing Que, they immediately let her in. Feng Jiu arrives a few minutes later to support her aunt but is stopped because they think she's an impostor.
Broiling with anger on the inside but maintaining a calm and collected look on the outside, Bai Qian enters the Su Jin's ward.
She's here to collect her eyes back, three hundred years ago in her mortal life she was to undergo a romantic tragedy. In all the tussle and bustle, she forgot she left her eyes here, but it's time for her to retrieve them.
Shocked silly, Su Jin cries and begs Bai Qian to take pity on her. But Bai Qian isn't buying it, Three hundred years ago, Su Jin relied on acting weak and gaining others pity to get what she wanted. Three hundred years later, she's pulling the same act. Doesn't she have something else up her sleeve? Both her and Bai Qian know exactly what happened all those years ago, how Su Jin lost her eyes, how Su Su lost her eyes, just because Su Jin held onto her eyes for three hundred years doesn't mean its automatically hers.
Bai Qian gauges her eyes out of Su Jin and takes them back for herself. Now they are even over the eyes but the Ju Xian Tai situation isn't over yet. Bai Qian gives Su Jin two options. Either Su Jin can throw herself into Ju Xian Tai and they will call it even or she has to confess her sins to Tian Jun (the emperor of Jiu Chong Tian and get banished out of the heavens, never to return.
Bai Qian leaves and Su Jin immediately goes to Tian Jun but it's not to confess her sins. She cries to Tian Jun saying Bai Qian cruelly took her eyes away and that she's been wronged. She brings her uncles along and they back her up saying just because Bai Qian is a Shang Shen (higher ranking god) she can't just do whatever she wants, this is outright bullying and shouldn't be tolerated. Feng Jiu finally got allowance to enter Jiu Chong Tian and brings Di Jun with her to back up her aunt. She argues that her aunt was just getting back what was hers. When she was a mortal she was bullied and no one helped her.
If she was in the right why did she leave so quickly after taking the eyes/ Obviously she has something to hide, the uncles argued.
Feng Jiu reasons, that's because Bai Qian didn't want to make a big deal of it. Imagine the uproar if everyone found out the heavenly gods of Jiu Chong Tian bullied a mere mortal and took her eyes.
As it was Tian Jun who made the decision to take the eyes all those years ago, he immediately stops Feng Jiu with a "Fang Si" (basically means rude and ridiculous, old people with higher rankings tend to say it when a younger generation says something out of hand).
Di Jun ingeniously cuts in and agrees that it is "Fang Si". Tian Jun is too invested into this case, instead, he, Di Jun will take the case. He doesn't have any ties to either parties and can come to a fair decision on the situation.
Ye Hua arrives back in the heavenly lands. Hearing that Bai Qian took Su Jin's eyes, he figures out that Bai Qian remembers. He wants to immediately see Bai Qian and explain himself but decides to resolve the issue first.
He calls on his second and third uncle to join him. The second uncle used to be engaged to Bai Qian but he fell in love with Bai Qian's underling, he ended up marrying her instead of Bai Qian. Coincidentally their son (Ye Hua's cousin) was wrongly framed for molesting Su Jin a few years back, Ye Hua calls them over so they can finally tell their story and get even with Su Jin. The uncle at first wants to let it go and let bygones be bygones. But Ye Hua warns him, letting it go once means it can happen again, this time it was his older son, next time it can be one of his other children.
At the trial, first, Ye Hua exposes that Su Jin used a spell to try and make him fall in love with her. She drops a doll from her clothes, it's proof of the spell. Putting a spell on the crown prince is punishable with banishment.
Secondly, Ye Hua's cousin explained how he was framed. It was Su Jin who told him to follow her then put him under a spell, doused him in alcohol and ripped his clothes apart. When he awoke from the spell he found himself in Su Jin's room and Tian Jun was walking in, he didn't even know what was going on till afterwards.
Su Jin pleads that he is lying, She's the victim here. Di Jun smartly asks the cousin how often he visits Jiu Chong Tian. The cousin answers that time was his first time ever in Jiu Chong Tian.
If it's his first time then how can he know to sneak away from everyone (that day was Tian Jun's birthday so everyone was there for his party) and get into Ye Hua's palace, specifically Su Jin's ward.
Left with nothing else to say, Su Jin sputters as she tries to formulate another lie.
"If you have nothing else to say, then just shut up" Di Jun says elegantly. Purposely he asks Ye Hua's mother "What is the punishment for framing a Chong Tian Prince?" Ye Hua's mother has always really liked Su Jin and has always been biased towards her).
"Banishment from the heavenly lands" She grudgingly says.
Di Jun calmly comments, they haven't even gotten to the situation with Bai Qian and Su Jin, there's already so many punishments waiting for her.
Su Jin crawls pitifully to Tian Jun. They were all lying and bullying her. Everything they said wasn't true.
Ye Hua steps up, "Then you mean I'm lying as well? What is the punishment for slandering the crown prince?"
The crime for slandering the crown prince is even more severe than the previous two added together. Di Jun concludes based on Bai Qian's reputation in comparison to this woman's, it's obvious who to trust. If they continued further, it will be a smear to Qing Que.
Tian Jun agrees and send Su Jin away to guard a seal that's been keeping the dark lord trapped.
Ye Hua rushes back to Bai Qian but she refuses to see him. She tells Migu she's going to Tian Jun to break off her engagement with Ye Hua but never leaves her cave to actually do it. Ye Hua at the same time stays outside of her cave waiting for her to come out but doesn't charge in as she said she didn't want to see him. They remain at a stand off for 7 days and 7 nights.
The evil lord breaks free and Bai Qian gets called to seal him back as she was there all those years ago with they first sealed him away.
Ye Hua sees this and rushes after her. He binds her with a magical spell so she can't interfere and battles the evil lord himself. But as he lost a lot of power already, he ultimately sacrifices himself and kills the evil lord along with himself.
She takes his dead body back to her cave. She stays with his dead body day and night until his parents show up to take his body back. At first Bai Qian refuses, Ye Hua wanted to come back to the cave, it was the last thing he said before he died. But it's also Jiu Chong Tian law for the family to take back the body so Di Jun finally takes the body away.
Bai Qian reluctantly parts with Ye Hua's body. She relinquishes her title as empress to her niece and spends the next few years wallowing in sadness and traveling the mortal world.
