Lingyi scolds Lianfang for what happened with Shiyi and hints that he knows this was her doing.
Lianfang brings back a contaminated puppy and Xu Zhun gets infected with ringworms by playing with the puppy. She also told Xu Zhun to keep it a secret that he’s playing with the puppy. So everytime he gets better, he gets worse right away, because he keeps going back to the puppy and no one else knows this.
Madame Xu claims that Shiyi doesn’t know how to take care of children, because Xu Zhun got sick and banned her from taking care of him, effectively grounding her within her courtyard. Then she lets Lianfang take care of Xu Zhun.
