Ji Yao Hua, the head of the female deputies and who everyone know is in love with Coldblood finds out that Coldblood carries the responsibility of seeking vengeance for his clan's killings and tries to get Coldblood to open his heart to her. After listening to Yao Hua's pleas to let her share his burden, Coldblood does tell her about his tragic past but refuses to involve her in his life long goal of revenge.
Li Mo successfully proves that she can communicate with the wolves when she gets them to not attack her and Sheriff Zhuge tells her about her mother who has been missing since Li Mo was young. Vowing to find her mother no matter what, Li Mo decides to start learning the art of reading people's heart. (Meaning she can read their true intent and thoughts)
Despite her effort to help the Nine Tailed Fox with getting Coldblood's blood, Li Mo gets caught every time... which doesn't improve her relationship with Coldblood at all.
However, in spite of his cold attitude towards Li Mo, Coldblood still ends up willingly giving the Nine Tailed Fox his blood when she threatens to kill Li Mo if she doesn't get his blood.
With Coldblood's blood in hand, Prince An freely admits his lies of making the Nine Tailed Fox believe her husband can be saved. Furious, the Nine Tailed Fox in turn tricks Prince An into believing the bottled blood in his hand is fake. Tossing the bottled blood aside, Prince An fights with the Nine Tailed Fox until she is mortally injured. Li Mo and Coldblood arrives in time for the Nine Tailed Fox to apologize to Li Mo for using their friendship. Holding each other, the Nine Tailed Fox and her husband dies together.
Li Mo becoming Coldblood's personal maid creates a huge commotion within the deputy department especially with the female deputies who sees Coldblood as their leader's (Yao Hua) man already. Huffing at the female deputies' assertion that she would seduce Coldblood, Li Mo only has eyes for Deputy Heartless who is always extra kind to her.
Nervously holding the target in front of her, Li Mo couldn't help it but drops the wooden shield in pain when the two female deputies shoot small rocks at her feet.
Frozen by the sight of the princess's arrow coming right at her throat, Li Mo narrowly escape death when Coldblood catches the arrow just in the nick of time.
Furious by how closely Li Mo avoided death, Coldblood says through gritted teeth "don't leave my place without my permission ever again." After shooting laser beams at the two female deputies, Coldblood throws the arrow on the floor and yells at the Princess for being spoiled.
Prince An sends his man into Coldblood's place to spread around specialty powders that would trigger Coldblood's transformation into a wolfman. (He usually only transform in the beginning and middle of each month, but the powder can trigger the transformation right away.)
Jumping out to push Heartless away from harm when a crazed Coldblood swipes at the deputy, Li Mo is hopeless when Coldblood wraps his hand around her throat.
Swelling with sympathy for Coldblood, Li Mo tells him to let his hatred go or else he will be consumed by his need for revenge. Li Mo's heart reading and words work it's magic on a transformed Coldblood and he releases Li Mo from his grip.
Already uncomfortable how Li Mo's presence seems to be everywhere Yao Huo is even more dismayed when Sheriff Zhuge asks her to take on Li Mo as one of her team.
Not crack drama material by any means, but REALLY easy to just keep watching for some reason. This drama is actually kinda hard for me to write about because every time I have to type the deputies' names such as Heartless and Coldblood I feel so cheesy. The name doesn't sound too bad in Chinese but they sound really bad once you translate it into English. Oh, well, that's Chinese wuxia for you.
So far I am liking the relationship development between the two leads. Not too fast but I can definitely see progress. I am not as impressed with the romance story line with the other deputies though... they just all seems kinda well... cheesy. It's like EVERY guy in this show has to have an EPIC TRAGIC love story. Heck, even the villains all have to have them as well. This particular writer seems to be rather found of creating villains that are bad but their story makes you feel bad for them while some of the "good" guys are purely incompetent and do things that makes them almost worse than the villains.
Case in point, the two female deputies seemed to have no qualms that they almost killed Li Mo and other than several pointed glares from our hero and Yao Hua, the two deputies suffered no consequences for plotting murder?!
Still, despite some obvious pit falls which you really just have to ignore when one watches Chinese Wuxia dramas, this one is keeping my interest so far and I breeze through the weekly four episodes often without realizing it.
