The members of the Jin clan are not so happy when the trio try to barge into Meng Yao’s chambers. Finally seeing there’s no way out Meng Yao lets them into his chambers. He knows that he was spied upon as he had a feeling that Wei Wuxian’s puppet was in the room. Within the room they see that his wife is unconscious. As they take in the room his wife commits suicide by stabbing herself.
In the scuffle that follows, Wei Wuxian ends up pulling out the Subian, his old sword. Do note that only the person who owns the sword can pull it out. It’s like how the wand responds to the wizard in Harry Potter. Now that his identity is revealed he is cornered by everyone as the villian. Where have we seen this before? As Wei Wuxian takes in the situation and the blame Lan Wangji sides with him. He initially asks him not to, but he is firm in his resolve and the duo escape. As they make their escape Wei Wuxian is injured by Jin Ling who now knows his real identity. As Wei Wuxian collapsed from his injuries, the next time he wakes up is at Gusu where he has been tended to by the Lan clan. They explain everything to Lan Xi Chen who wants to find out more about this, but also feels Meng Yao might be innocent after all due to brotherhood promise between them.
Takeaways from the episode
I’m worried that the Lan clan leader might support Meng Yao due to all this brotherhood stuff. I hope he sees into his evil side soon!
Also the bonds and chemistry between Lan Wangji and Wei Wuxian just skyrocketed here! I guess Lan Wangji was not going to lose his friend again like how he already experienced one time! Let’s go on to the next episode and see what is in store!
