The Sword of a Loyal Family

Meng Kui colludes with pirates in a plot to attack Huainan. Xun Ru wants to borrow Lord Long the sword with a hidden blade to assassinate Meng. Lord Long agrees and even sends his son Jialie to be the assassin.  

Unfortunately Jialie is driven off a cliff in the end. On Lord Long’s birthday, Meng Kui announces his visit and presents him with a silk box – inside is a human head. Lord Long decides to mobilise the entire family to fight the villain and die for an honourable cause. 

At this point an injured Jialie appears. He has learnt of Meng Kui’s return route via the treacherous Bolang Cliff. Lord Long picks up his arms and leads his men to lay an ambush. Meng Kui’s army is duly trapped and Meng Kui is killed. The story of the sword of the loyal Long family is passed down the generations.

Later the two meet Jingniang, daughter of Ge Daxiong, a minister who holds sway at the imperial court. Ge recognizing Tianbao's talent, offers him his daughter's hand.

Deru by chance learns of Ge's plan to usurp the throne by assassinating the emperor. In order to protect Tianbao, Jingniang pretends to be having an affair with Deru. In a rage, Tianbao writes a letter of divorce, and Jingniang is expelled from home.

Ge’s plot to assassinate the Song emperor and his empress is thwarted by Tianbao. He is rewarded with a high position in the imperial court.
