Mystery in the Palace..... and so the story continues.........

Beile Ge Tai returns to the palace bruised but otherwise fine. Han Xiang recuperates in Empress Dowager's palace and resumes investigations with the Crown Prince and also Beile Ge Tai on the side lines. Concubine Xuan gets worried and poisons Mr An, after Han Xiang and Beile paid him a visit. She had been hiding behind his rooms but Han Xiang suspected and spied to see her. On further investigations, she gets found out and arrested and confesses to her dastardly deeds and sentenced to death. However she made a break for freedom and was caught by the masked man instead and hung .
Imperial Concubine gets worried and tries to keep the Crown Prince from the investigations.
The Crown Princess starts picking on Chun Zhu and accuses her of stealing her vase, a supposed heirloom. Han Xiang rushes to Chun Zhu's rescue and pleads for time to investigate it. The Crown Princess agrees with the condition by the end of  3 days, if they could not find out where the vase was, Han Xiang would be exiled along with Chun Zhu.
Meanwhile, the mask man starts attention to Han Xiang as well and almost hangs her except for some intervention from Beile Ge Tai.
Her investigations bring Han Xiang to the doors of Concubine Jing. She became suspicious of concubine Jing and set watch on what was going on and learned that Concubine Jing had been stealing rare royal antiques and smuggling them out via the Buddha Matreya statue which comes by the palace once a year for her worship. Long ago, Princess Yidan found that out too and had quarreled with the concubine Jing and another princess  before she was murdered.
Concubine Jing was sentenced to stay in a far more deserted palace and her accomplice, the abbot of the Buddha Matreya was sentenced to prison for 10 years.
Han Xiang asks Concubine Jing about her knowledge of her mother and concubine Jing explained that she only got a letter from Princess Yidan after a while from when she disappeared saying she was in the temple and that the Imperial Concubine knew about it too.
She then went to ask the Imperial Concubine and got slapped. However, the Crown Prince told her to stop asking the Imperial Concubine.
Meanwhile, in King Lie's household, a guest appears. She is a nun and King Lie treats her with much respect and care, making Beile Ge Tai suspicious. It turns out that she could be his mother and he finds out that he is actually adopted, as per his so called brothers' teasing and becomes pretty much upset. He runs off but comes across Han Xiang delivering some medication for him., and tells her. When Han Xiang finds out he is adopted and a nun was involved, her worse fears come true and she begins keeping her distance again, declaring that she only cared for Beile Ge Tai as a good friend and nothing more. Beile Ge Tai kisses her in frustration trying to proof to both of them that she has feelings for him and she slaps him and runs off back to the palace in search of Ms Tong to cry. Beile returns home and vents his frustrations in the martial arts room.
King Lie looks for Beile Ge Tai and explains the truth to him. The nun, Mah Guo Er is in fact his real sister, who was once a Princess . She had fallen in love with a wrong person, and tried to hang herself when the Emperor forced her to marry someone else. She then was imprisoned and King Lie had helped her escape. She then disappeared and the Emperor to cover it up announced that the Princess was dead. She only appeared a year or so later with a baby that she gave to King Lie , making him promise to raise the child like his own. That baby was Ge Tai .
Ge Tai then accepted it and apologised to both King Lie and his mother. However when he asked his mother about who his real father really was, she refused to tell him.
Knowing of the conflicts between Ge Tai and Han Xiang, Mah Guo Er, sets out towards the palace to try to meet Han Xiang to set things right.
Han Xiang then learns from both  the Empress Dowager and Mah Guo Er later on that Ge Tai shares the same birthday as her but he is one year older then her.
Meanwhile, Crown Princess stills tries to get Crown Prince's attention but fails, making her more embittered. Crown Prince gets into a drunken spree with Babu and Bo Hai , King Lie's sons and into an argument with Han Xiang which was reported back to the Crown Princess by Chun Zhu!!!
When Ge Tai learns that Mah Guo Er, his mother has set off to the palace, he panicks and goes in search for her.. The Crown Prince, Tuo He Gi (his aide), Ba bu and Bo Hai sees Ge Tai and proceeds to beat him up, out of spite and jealousy...
Mah Guo Er and Han Xiang set out to look for Ge Tai and brought him to the embroidery shop to recuperate on finding him badly injured. Han Xiang then begs for forgiveness and admits it has been difficult for her too and that she wants badly to be with him. Ge Tai tells her the truth that Mah Guo Er is actually his mother and King Lie's sister, and swore her to secrecy.
However they made the fact that they were officially seeing each other public and Chun Zhu went to report to the Crown Princess  along with the fact that Ms Tong was still looking at the jade seal belonging to Yi Dan. Crown Princess tried to cooked up a plan and demanded that she tell the Crown Prince who threw a hissy fit. Even Tuo He Gi scolded Chun Zhu saying that she was betraying her best friend but Chun Zhu selfishly said she only looked out for herself.
Meantime the Emperor disappears and was taken by bandits . He pretended to be a prince/Beile instead. However the bandits wanted to kill him, knowing his real identity, hoping to raise the spirit of Concubine Huan, who was actually the bandit leader's girl friend.
At the same time, Ge Tai and Han Xiang acted out a charade in front of the empress saying that Concubine Jing and Imperial Concubine knew where Yi Dan was but did not want to say much. Empress Dowager got upset and summoned the Imperial Concubine to question her. Imperial Concubine then admitted that the Emperor was the one who ordered her not to tell the Empress Dowager. In their stress, both the Imperial Concubine and Empress Dowager fell ill.
The Emperor returned to the palace and finally admitted everything to his mother, including the part that Yi Dan was carrying his baby and he just knew about it.
Waking up in a fever, Empress Dowager called for Yi Dan, mistaking Han Xiang for Yi Dan and Han Xiang just held on to the Empress Dowager, comforting her. She then went to the kitchen to get some asthma soup for the Empress Dowager but got trapped in one of the rooms by the man in black/masked man, who proceeded to locked the doors and tried to burn down the place as he did Yi Dan. This incited nightmares in the Empress Dowager as well.
Han Xiang inhaled a lot of poisonous fumes and fainted into a coma. A kitchen staff went in seach of something saw it and went to get help, almost knocking into Beile Ge Tai. Ge Tai then knocked the doors down and found Han Xiang in the corner and took her to the Empress Dowager's palace for medical attention. The physicians however found her too weak and asked for her to be transfered to the hospital.
Chun Zhu again went to report to the Crown Princess who was delighted at the news, as well as stealing the jade seal report to pass it to the Crown Princess.
Meantime, Ge Tai went to the Shuangdong (or something like that)temple and pleaded for Han Xiang's life, willingly cutting his life shorter. The abbot told him nothing can be done, but if he wanted to try, he had to bow and walk down a street. The news reached Aunt Rong and the other embroderers in the town and they agreed to follow Ge Tai to do it too, if it meant being able to help Han Xiang live.....
