Feeling thirsty, Ji Bai starts to pour himself a cup of coffee until Xu Xu pops up behind him and begins to list off all the reasons why drinking coffee right before going to bed is not good idea. A bit stunned even as Xu Xu takes the coffee from him and hands him a cup of milk, Ji Bai silently picks up his coffee again after his apprentice walks away but at least he did add a good amount of milk to it.
Watching the procession of girls that had been found locked up in the compound, Xu Xu's attention is caught when one particular scared woman started screaming hysterically. Putting a hand on the frightened woman, Xu Xu calms the woman down and sends her off with the rest of girls to be put on a bus heading for the hospital.
Walking around the now empty compound, Xu Xu enters into the room where the hysterical woman was found and belatedly discover evidences that send her running out of the room in a panic. Dismayed when he hears from a breathless Xu Xu that the hysterical woman was most likely Lu Ge, Ji Bai jumps into the car and race towards the hospital with Xu Xu.
By the time our two leads arrive on the scene, Lu Ge has already got away leaving both Zhao Han and Yao Meng unconscious on the ground. (Yao Meng was stabbed with a knife by Lu Ge.)
Filled with guilt especially after hearing a few nurses lamenting how the police could've let a killer into the hospital that resulted in the death of a nurse that was only 22 years of age, Xu Xu doesn't have time to dwell on her own emotions but becomes immediately concerned when she sees a pale faced Ji Bai. A bit unsteady after donating an unwisely large amount of blood for Zhao Han, Ji Bai tells Xu Xu to not lecture him since he already got plenty from the nurse.
Sitting down next to Ji Bai, Xu Xu listens quietly as he recounts how Zhao Han and his mother had come to live in Ji Bai's house after Zhao Han's dad, Detective Zhao had disappeared during a police assignment. Having considered Detective Zhao like his own father, Ji Bai decides to enter the police training academy but was unwilling to let Zhao Han follow him in such a dangerous profession. Despite Ji Bai's attempt to change Zhao Han's mind, Ji Bai finally relents when Mama Zhao declares that if Ji Bai was going to be a policeman then she would rather her son be one as well so they could take care of each other. Understanding clearly of the guilt Ji Bai must be feeling, Xu Xu softly lays her hand on Ji Bai's.
Tightening his hand around Xu Xu's, Ji Bai keeps hold of our heroine's hand even as he lowers his head to his hands.
While we have had plenty of clues that Ji Bai is quickly getting used to our heroine habit of taking care of him, this is the first time he opens himself to her and actively seek her comfort. Melt...
Thanks to Ji Bai and his immediate superior's fierce defense of the two girls, Yao Meng and Xu Xu ended up not getting reprimanded for the incident. (Ji Bai and his boss weren't so lucky though.) Already surprised to learn that the "higher ups" were so reasonable for once, Ji Bai is stunned when his boss Zhan Dui reveals that not only has he always known Ji Bai's attempts to find the real villain behind Detective Zhao's disappearance but he has actually been secretly providing our hero help along the way. All fired up when Zhan Dui hands him a mission to go deep into Myanmar to catch the big bad for good, Ji Bai's excitement turns to dismay once his boss orders him to take Xu Xu as well. Ji Bai tries to protest that the mission would be too dangerous for someone so physically unprepared as Xu Xu but finally relents once Zhan Dui tells him that Xu Xu's participation is an order from the higher ups.
(Zhan Han's father disappeared while on a human trafficking case in Myanmar. Which is also the same case that killed Ye Zi's father as well. So in short, everything (including the cases involving Ye Zi's death and Lu Ge) goes back to a mysterious big villain that operates in Myanmar.)
Yao Meng was a pretty tragic character in the novel but since the script writer has changed her character so dramatically I am hoping she will get a happy ending here.
Watching Yao Meng runs off, Ji Bai turns to the now crying Xu Xu and says "The hardest thing about being a detective, is not outsmarting the criminals but is to not fall apart after the criminal escapes, the hostage killed and your comrade wounded. Xu Xu, for the rest of your life as a detective, you will face guns or knifes in front while leaving flowers (graves) behind you. You can't choose. The one thing you can do is to pick up the gun and try your best to stop them."
Grabbing the gun from Ji Bai's hand, our heroine aims it firmly towards the target and shoots with a fierce determination. Looking away from the target that shows clearly that Xu Xu has learned well under his tutelage, Ji Bai declares "Xu Xu, from now on you are officially a member of the Myanmar mission."
