The Emperor wants Ling Buyi, his foster son, to wrap up the armament case. However, Ling Buyi is too invested to stop.

Ling Buyi passes by his father’s residence without going inside to see his father, Ling Yi, Marquis Chengyang.

Cheng Shaoshang continues to pretend to be sick, fooling her father but not her mother.

While Cheng Shaoshang’s parents were away, the Cheng family punished Cheng Shaoshang by banishing her to the countryside. They didn’t give her money, clothes, or food and wouldn’t pay for a physician when she fell sick. 

Cheng Shaoshang’s mother returned home earlier to see how the Cheng family treats her daughter. She intends to be strict in disciplining Cheng Shaoshang to curb her from being rebellious.

Cheng Shaoshang sends Ling Buyi a bundle of hay and fabric pieces.

Acting on the tip, Ling Buyi investigates a fabric store owned by Second Aunt. The ledger shows a large amount of money laundered by Granduncle Dong.

Cheng Shaoshang doesn’t want to take bitter medicine. Her father allows her to add sugar but not her mother.

Old Madam Cheng threatens suicide. Acting just as melodramatic, Cheng Shaoshang’s father doesn’t see how he can save Granduncle Dong. If she wants to report him for being unfilial because he doesn’t do what she wants, just know that conviction means he could be executed and his assets seized.

Cheng Shaoshang’s mother catches Cheng Shaoshang watching the theatrical battle with glee.

Afraid of torture, Granduncle Dong confesses to Ling Buyi.

Cheng Shaoshang’s father convinces Old Madam Cheng to put their family first instead of siding with relatives.

Cheng Shaoshang’s father tells his wife to not scold Cheng Shaoshang while they are eating.

Old Madam Cheng adores Cheng Shaoshang’s father and Third Uncle as much as she disapproves of their wives. 

Cheng Shaoshang’s mother hits Cheng Shaoshang’s hand with a ruler for gossiping about her elders. Cheng Shaoshang has been looking forward to going to the Lantern Festival for the first time, but now she has to stay in her room and copy the Book of Rites.

[Smoke didn’t come out of the chimney, so Old Madam Cheng panicked. It turns out Cheng Shaoshang modified the chimney to scare her superstitious grandmother. 

Cheng Shaoshang’s mother had a ruler because she wanted to take Cheng Shaoshang’s measurements to make new clothes for her.]

News of victory reaches the capital, followed by the return of Ling Buyi and his troops. For his accomplishments on the battlefield, he is awarded more titles, authority, and privileges by the Emperor.

Servants from the Cheng family have to bring Cheng Shaoshang back to the capital, dead or alive.

The Cheng family abandoned Cheng Shaoshang in the countryside, not caring that she fell ill and almost died. Her parents are away fighting in a war and send her sporadic letters over the years.

Ling Buyi monitors Cheng Shaoshang’s house.

Falling for Cheng Shaoshang’s prank, Head Housemaid Li calls her a troublemaker.

Head Housemaid Li will use force if Cheng Shaoshang refuses to go with them.

Cheng Shaoshang, haggard and dressed shabbily, looks old to Ling Buyi’s lieutenants, Liang Qiufei and Liang Qiuqi.

Cheng Shaoshang notices footsteps from the carriage going to a haystack.

Lianfang, Cheng Shaoshang’s maid, doesn’t like how the carriage smells. Cheng Shaoshang says it’s the smell of a man who hasn’t bathed for some time.

Unlike Lianfang, Cheng Shaoshang isn’t as optimistic in thinking her life will improve if her parents return home.

Ling Buyi’s group demands to search the Cheng family’s carriage. Head Housemaid Li protests, citing impropriety because Cheng Shaoshang is unmarried. Cheng Shaoshang urges Ling Buyi to burn the haystack next to her house first, and he might find what he is looking for. Ling Buyi doesn’t see Cheng Shaoshang’s face, just her hand pointing to the haystack.

After the haystack is set on fire, Cheng Shaoshang’s Granduncle Dong crawls out and is arrested.

Cheng Shaoshang would rather betray her granduncle than have the Cheng family get in trouble for hiding a criminal. Her parents will return home soon, but her future is uncertain. If her parents love her, why did they abandon her when she was born?

Ling Buyi looks at the procession of the Cheng household and repeats the name he heard: Cheng Shaoshang.

Cheng Shaoshang meets her parents for the first time. Her grandmother, Old Madam Cheng, and Second Aunt claim they tried their best to raise Cheng Shaoshang, but her parents see that isn’t true. Old Madam Cheng pretends to be sick and faints, but she loses to Cheng Shaoshang, who appears sicker and faints more dramatically.

Old Madam Cheng and Second Aunt lament how they sacrificed, dealing with a rebel like Cheng Shaoshang. Cheng Shaoshang’s parents see through the lies, but they can’t criticize Old Madam Cheng. Assessing the situation, Cheng Shaoshang acts contrite to gain sympathy for her suffering.

Cheng Shaoshang’s parents learn that Ling Buyi arrested Granduncle Dong for stealing armament. Their shock seems genuine to Ling Buyi.

Ling Buyi praises Cheng Shaoshang for putting country before family. Moreover, he compares her to officials in the Ministry of Justice because she upheld justice by turning in a relative.

But to Cheng Shaoshang, it sounds like Ling Buyi is mocking her.

Baijue is shocked when he sees falling stars in the sky.

Shanggu also sees the falling stars and refuses to believe that Yuemi died.

Wuhuan, the sole eyewitness, says Tianqi killed Yuemi. Zihan is certain Tianqi would never do that. Baijue orders Hongri to keep both sides from fighting each other.

It’s time for Baijue to talk to Tianqi.

Baijue gives Tianqi a chance to explain what happened to Yuemi. Tianqi says some things, like the realms, are replaceable while some things are not. Baijue and Tianqi fight.

Muguang disobeys Baijue’s order and attacks Tianqi. With the integration of the Instruction Feather, the Destruction Formation begins to obliterate troops on both sides. Baijue pierces Tianqi’s chest with the Taicang Spear. Tianqi says Baijue will regret this.

Baijue retrieves the Instruction Feather and grieves for Tianqi.

Shocked to see more falling stars, Shanggu leaves Gujun at the South Sea while she rushes to find Baijue.

Hongri says Zihan returned to the Demon Realm. Shanggu sees a statue resembling Yuemi. Baijue doesn’t think Zihan will talk to them, so they won’t know why Tianqi tried to create the Destruction Formation.

Shanggu drinks wine and cries, remembering her times with Tianqi and Yuemi.

Relaying a message left by Yuemi for Shanggu, Muguang says his teacher felt guilty because she helped Baijue and Shanggu to be together for her benefit since she was in love with Tianqi. Shanggu issues a decree, allowing Yuemi to be the owner of the Taoyuan Forest forever and promoting Muguang to be God of Moon and Stars. Baijue asks Shanggu to come with him.

Baijue needs Shanggu’s help to seal the Purple Moon Whip so it can be put away in the Hidden Pavilion. Feeling uneasy, Shanggu accepts the Instruction Feather from Baijue.

Shanggu realizes there must be a reason why Baijue pushed her to become Chief God of Chaos, Xuanyi rebelled when he could have been Chief God of Chaos, and lastly, Tianqi wanted to become Chief God of Chaos.

Baijue checks Tianqi’s natal chart.

[Flashback: The barrier of the Demon Realm is broken, so Tianqi thinks there is a link between the Power of Chaos and the Tribulation of Chaos.]

Baijue delves into Tianqi’s natal chart.

[Flashback: At the Heaven and Earth Platform, Tianqi finds out the Tribulation of Chaos will destroy the God Realm and all living beings unless the Chief God of Chaos sacrifices herself.]

Shanggu saves Baijue, and holding his hand, she promises to be with him forever.

Reviewing what Zihan stole from the Hidden Pavilion, Baijue suspects Tianqi wants to create the Destruction Formation, which destroys the realms and enables the creator to become God of Chaos. Shanggu doesn’t believe that Tianqi is doing this to be Chief God.

Shanggu borrows the Immortal-seeking Bell from Yuemi. Yuemi is in love with Tianqi, so she begs Shanggu to help him.

Baijue searches books for a way to stop the Destruction Formation.

At the Abyssal Ridge Swamp, Shanggu offers to let Tianqi be Chief God, so there is no need for the Destruction Formation. Tianqi refuses to surrender and attacks Shanggu with the Purple Moon Whip.

Wuhuan asks Shanggu about her injury. Shanggu orders Wuhuan not to tell anyone, especially Baijue.

Baijue knows that Shanggu is injured the moment he sees her. Shanggu cries, devastated by Tianqi’s betrayal.

Shanggu says even gods are powerless against destiny. Before Baijue knew Shanggu, he stuck to his principles, but now, he would give her the benefit of the doubt if she did something wrong and is willing to be punished with her.

Shanggu convenes a meeting.

Shanggu assigns Baijue to lead troops to stop Tianqi. Zhiyang and other gods will guard the Heaven and Earth Platform, the base of the God Realm. Lastly, Shanggu and Gujun will be at the South Sea to protect the lower realm. Yuemi begs Shanggu to let her go with Baijue.

Shanggu tells Yuemi not to be lenient with Tianqi.

Muguang lets Wuhuan come along with the troops, not knowing that she intends to kill Tianqi with a weapon from the Devil Tribe called the Sky Bow. Baijue, flanked by Yuemi and Hongri, leads the troops to the Abyssal Ridge Swamp to stop Tianqi.

Hongri tried, but he couldn’t convince Zihan and the Demon Tribe to surrender. Senjian, Chief of Tiger Demons and made a demigod by Tianqi, arrives to help the Demon Tribe.

Baijue allows Yuemi to talk to Tianqi even though the Destruction Formation is nearing completion.

Full of ambition, Wuhuan hopes to discover evidence of Yuemi colluding with Tianqi and stop the Destruction Formation.

Baijue orders both sides to stop fighting.

Meanwhile, Shanggu and Gujun must seal the South Sea or it will flood the lower realm.

The power of the Destruction Formation seems to be weakening, but Shanggu and Gujun can’t leave until they finish sealing the South Sea.

After killing Qiongqi beasts, Shanggu transfers her power to Baijue to help him feel better.

Shanggu has researched the Inheritance Ceremony, so she is prepared for tomorrow when she receives the Instruction Feather. After the Inheritance Ceremony, Baijue wants to meet Shanggu in the Taoyuan Forest to tell her a secret.

The next morning, Shanggu wakes up late, shocked to see Baijue by her bed.

[Flashback: Wuhuan can’t persuade Shanggu to wake up to get ready for the Inheritance Ceremony.]

Shanggu accepts a dress made of Divine Brocade from Baijue. Many years ago, Baijue read the writing of a young lady born with blocked vessels who deeply felt the sufferings in the realms, so he understands her efforts more than anyone.

At the Heaven and Earth Platform, Shanggu becomes Chief God. Xueying is a spy for Xuanyi, helping him to witness the Inheritance Ceremony. Tianqi steals the Instruction Feather.

Tianqi won’t explain why he needs the Instruction Feather. Shanggu lets Tianqi go, not wanting him to be punished like Xuanyi.

Using Tianqi’s weapon, the Purple Moon Whip, Zihan leads demons to rebel against the God Realm. Baijue, still unwell, can’t capture Zihan.

Like Shanggu, Baijue knows that Tianqi didn’t steal the Instruction Feather to be Chief God. Shanggu has to go to the Phoenix Clan to get the Pith of the Plane Tree to save Baijue, who has fallen into a coma.

While Shanggu is away, Yuemi will help Wuhuan take care of Pilgrimage Hall. Wuhuan panics when Yuemi tells Shanggu to return with Fengyan.

Fengyun gives the Pith of the Plane Tree to Shanggu. Although Wuhuan isn’t comparable to Fengyan, Shanggu won’t replace her.

Shanggu returns to Changyuan Hall.

Baijue motions to Tianqi not to help Shanggu. With the Ancestral Sword, Shanggu vanquishes Moyu and the Qiongqi beasts. Gods, led by Baijue, Zhiyang and Tianqi, welcome Shanggu back to the God Realm.

Shanggu asks Baijue if he helped her in the Nether World. Baijue pretends not to know what Shanggu is talking about. Unlike Baijue, Zhiyang doesn’t pressure Shanggu to cultivate with the Instruction Feather immediately. Tianqi tells Baijue to leave if he isn’t feeling well.

Hongri worries about Baijue.

Shanggu thanks Wuhuan for taking care of Pilgrimage Hall and encourages her to improve her cultivation.

Allowed to return to the God Realm, Xueying is still in love with Baijue. Baijue never wants to see Xueying again.

Shanggu organizes a banquet to celebrate Yuemi’s birthday.

Yuemi rarely sees Baijue, who seems sick all the time. Shanggu suspects Baijue split his spirit from his body because the voice helping her in the Nether World sounded like him.

Shanggu’s toys, including her kite, are stored in Baijue’s study at Changyuan Hall. Hongri tells Shanggu what Baijue did for her.

Shanggu wants to marry Baijue, so she will prepare betrothal gifts befitting a True God.

Yuemi tells Baijue that Shanggu went to the lower realm to fight Qiongqi beasts.

Baijue rushes to help Shanggu.

Baijue sees Shanggu buying valuables from immortals. Teasing Baijue, Shanggu says he didn’t like her when she was in love with him, but after 1,000 years, he is stalking her and begging her to give him a chance. The crowd cheers for Baijue and Shanggu to be together.

In a room full of valuables for Baijue, Shanggu needs him to be honest with her. Mimicking Shanggu, Baijue backs her up against an etagere, and he leans down to kiss her, but she moves away.

A vendor thinks Baijue and Shanggu are siblings. It’s Valentine’s Day, so Baijue buys all the lanterns from the vendor for Shanggu.

Shanggu seals Water God’s lips before he reveals what she wrote about Baijue on a lantern. Seeing Qiongqi beasts, Baijue worries about the barrier in the Demon Realm, and he tells Shanggu to just use the Ancestral Sword because her power is destructive in the lower realm.

Baijue’s spirit helps Shanggu when she fights devils. Shanggu looks around, wondering who helped her when she was in danger.

Searching for herbs to treat her injuries, Shanggu is about to eat Ganoderma. Baijue’s spirit directs the Ancestral Sword to guide Shanggu to another herb nearby and destroys the Ganoderma.

Shanggu hopes Baijue ignores his fans while she is striving to become good enough for him. Baijue’s spirit turns the Ancestral Sword into a blanket to cover Shanggu and kisses her forehead, planning to let her know how he feels after she takes control of the Chief God’s Instruction Feather.

Baijue’s condition worsens as his spirit protects Shanggu year after year. Meanwhile, Shanggu cultivates diligently and visits Xuanyi in her spare time.

Moyu tells Shanggu to give up because she has suffered a lot in 1,000 years. Shanggu masters the Origin of God-defending and obtains the Power of Chaos, realizing that the Power of Chaos creates but also destroys, and with it, she controls everything in the realms.

Hongri blocks Zhiyang from entering Baijue’s room. Zhiyang says Shanggu will return tomorrow. In his room, Baijue smiles.

Xuanyi congratulates Shanggu. Before leaving, Shanggu says goodbye to Xuanyi.

Seeing a streak of light in the sky, Tianqi rushes to the Nether World to beat Baijue.

Baijue says his spirit was damaged during cultivation, but he can’t fool Tianqi.

A guard tells Baijue and Tianqi that Shanggu already left the Nether World.

Led by Moyu, Qiongqi beasts from the Demon Realm attack the God Realm. The Ancestral Sword appears, followed by Shanggu.

Tianqi yells at Baijue for not apologizing to him, the victim, but to Shanggu. To help Gujun become a god, Baijue will let him borrow the Dark Abyss and made a pill to unblock his cold veins. Shanggu asks what happens if Gujun wins, but Baijue’s silence disappoints her.

Shanggu loves Tianqi, but not romantically because he is like her brother. Tianqi intends to keep loving Shanggu and stay by her side, unfazed by her rejection.

Baijue tells Xueying to leave the God Realm after fighting Gujun or he will reveal her crime.

Tianqi wants to talk to Baijue about Shanggu.

Shanggu is worried, not knowing why Baijue hasn’t shown up for their meeting. Gujun doesn’t mind if Baijue won’t let them borrow the Dark Abyss.

Unlike Baijue, Tianqi dared to tell Shanggu how he feels about her. Baijue says love isn’t important to Shanggu, whose destiny is to be Chief God.

Baijue won’t force Shanggu to go to the Nether World if Gujun wins. Smiling with happiness, Shanggu accepts the key of the Dark Abyss. Xueying is determined to defeat Gujun.

In the Dark Abyss, a thunderstorm forms for Gujun’s trial.

Baijue monitors what is happening in the Dark Abyss.

Shanggu helps Gujun with the thunder strikes in his trial, and she takes the last thunder strike to save him.

Hongri is alarmed. However, Baijue doesn’t intervene because he believes in Shanggu.

Baijue becomes a god and thanks Shanggu. Not expecting thunder strikes in trials to be so devastating, Shanggu thinks about Baijue, who took all 49 thunder strikes for her in her trial.

Baijue is proud of Shanggu.

Shanggu shares Gujun’s news with Yuemi. Receiving a report about immortals dying mysteriously, Yuemi finally understands why Baijue pressures Shanggu to become Chief God of Chaos.

Zhiyang is busy in a meeting. Shanggu finds out the Power of Chaos is dissipating, causing an imbalance in the distribution of power in the realms.

Shanggu puts away her dice, toys and romance stories.

Xueying cheats by using spells, but Gujun defeats her. Zhongli and Xiahui confess, blaming Xueying for manipulating them into stealing a Nine-Clawed Lotus from Baijue’s pond and framing Gujun. Baijue banishes Xueying from the God Realm and demotes her to guard the barrier of the Nether World. Shanggu announces her decision to go to the Nether World.

As soon as Shanggu enters the Nether World, she has to fight devils. Moyu signals to his followers to refrain from attacking Shanggu.

Shanggu asks Xuanyi to create another barrier covering the Nether World, preventing her from leaving until she obtains the Power of Chaos. Xuanyi agrees on two conditions: his devils won’t go easy on her and she visits him often.

Ignoring Baijue, Tianqi asks Zhiyang to help him break Xuanyi’s barrier. Zhiyang says they need to stop spoiling Shanggu.

Baijue’s spirit leaves his body to go into the Nether World, even though doing so decreases his cultivation and lifespan. Hongri begs Baijue to be careful because whatever happens to the spirit affects the body, including death.

Baijue’s spirit guards Shanggu as she trains in the Nether World.
