Lin Shixian locates the original coroner for Shiyi’s mother and they find out that she was killed by an arrow and not actually a blade. Shiyi goes to the scene of the crime again and they bump into a hunter who tells them that he saw the leader of a troop of men shoot a woman being held hostage in that area. He was too far away to confirm details, but the evidence is starting to point to Lingyi.
Lingyi personally makes a duplicate of the burned lantern for Shiyi, but she can’t enjoy it with her heart full of doubt.
Shiyi refuses to believe that Lingyi killed her mother, so she gets him drunk to ask him about her mother’s death. He only got out the sentence that he was at fault and then faints, so Shiyi misunderstands him.
Lingyi volunteers to go to Shandong to investigate a disaster area that the Ou family might be involved with.
