Everything is ready. Also, we're prepared two large water tanks in case there's a fire. So this is Auspicious? Yes, Your Highness. More than a dozen craftsmen spent nearly two months making it. Several craftsmen couldn't stand it and have fallen sick. You must be exhausted. After the banquet, I'll give everyone a handsome reward. Thank you, Your Highness. Zhang, I'll leave it to you then. Don't worry. Your Highness. Are you all right? Take it easy. Get a physician to check up on them. Don't let them get too exhausted. Yes. Farewell, Your Highness. How's the preparation of food coming along for the banquet? I have checked. The food and utensils have been checked several times. So far, there is no problem. Good. Verify it once more with the Imperial Household Bureau. If there's anything, you can ask for Eunuch Liu's help. Don't worry, Young Master. From now on, I'll protect you in Brother Jiang's stead. Little Fei Yuan has grown up now. (Mingjing Office) Come on in. Su Ci. Here. Take a seat. How was the investigation? (Case File) (Case File) What's with the transportation of the poison? This poison is so lethal that a small amount can be fatal. But the most worrying thing now is that the whereabouts of the poison is unknown. The Empress Dowager's birthday banquet is around the corner. I'm afraid this is not that simple. Investigate it at once. If you want any help, come to me at any time. All right. My Lord. Have you been feeling unwell lately? When I just came in, I smelled sulphur from you. Are you on medication? It's no big deal. Perhaps, I've been too tired lately. I've gotten some scabies. So I applied some medicine. Perhaps, it's the smell of the medicine. Take good care of yourself. Don't worry. Get to your work. All right. Su Ci. About the poison. There is nothing definite at the moment. Keep a lid on it. We haven't got to the bottom of it. If this gets out, it will cause unnecessary panic. Yes. The Ministry of Rites and I have agreed on the arrangements for tomorrow. Your Majesty, Your Highness, please have a look. How long will the fireworks last? If it lasts too long, I might feel tired. Your Highness. There are 600 fireworks this time around. The last one called Auspicious is specially made for your birthday banquet. But if Your Highness thinks it takes too long, I can cut down some of it. Mother's birthday is a national celebration. Since the fireworks have been made, just go with the plan then. All right. How's the guard arrangement? All the ministers will be attending the banquet. There are some invited officials and craftsmen who will be setting off the fireworks. There will be many people in and out. Don't let anything go wrong. Don't worry, Your Highness. Commander Fu and I have made the arrangements. We'll make sure everything is in order. At that time, there'll be strict inspection at all the entry and exit points of the palace. We'll make sure it's absolutely safe. That's great then. (Zhaoyang Stage) Young Master, look. The weather is so good today. I was worried it would rain. Your Highness. Well, do you have any further instructions? Have you checked inside and outside the palace? The palace is as secure as an iron bucket. Nothing will go wrong. Thank you, Ziyou. Come on in. My Lord. Why did you ask to see me early in the morning? The villagers in Zhushui Village outside the capital got poisoned from the drinking water. Poisoned? When did this happen? What are the symptoms? Since last night, many people have had vomiting, diarrhea, and breathing difficulty. Do you think it has anything to do with that poison? Today is the Empress Dowager's birthday banquet. That batch of stolen poison and Tian Yong's murder. Is someone trying to start a rebellion? It's indeed suspicious. But why did they release poison outside the city? Look. The river in Zhushui Village leads directly to the capital. In other words, it is the source of drinking water for the capital. Could it really be that batch of poison? If they poisoned the water source, the people in the capital... It's too early to jump to conclusion now. How about this? Take a few men with you to investigate the matter. I'll examine the water in the capital. Yes. I'll get to it now. Hold on. My Lord. Today is the Empress Dowager's birthday banquet. Don't bother too many people. Bring only a few men with you. Dress up as ordinary men. Yes. Remember. Don't get too engrossed in the investigation. Be careful. Don't worry. I'll be careful. You're working too hard on investigation. Just like me when I first came to the capital. But it's cruel and unpredictable working in the government. Remember. Don't trust anyone easily. My Lord. You, on the other hand, have been busy with work lately. Take good care of yourself. I'm fine. Be careful in everything you do. Don't worry. I shall take my leave. Be careful. Detective Su. Zhushui Village should be right there. We're half way through the journey now. Why don't we take a break here? We'd better not get exhausted before we get there. All right. Let's take a break. All right. Brother Su. Drink some water. Thank you. Rushuang, here. Brother Xie. When will we get there? I guess we'll only get there afternoon. It's too late. We have to check the villagers who have got poisoned. Even if there is nothing serious, we can't go back to the palace to watch the fireworks. Let's investigate the poisoning at the village. Nothing else matters compared to the safety of the people. Rushuang. If you want to watch it, I'll get my men to find all the best craftsmen to make you the largest and most beautiful firework. That's good. Let's hit the road. All right. Let's go. This way. What's wrong? Nothing. Let's go. Let's go. Detective Su. There is the only river near this village. It should be the source. Let's get some water. Rushuang, be careful. Rushuang, check this out. This powder is... Someone really did pour poison into the river. Hope things go well in the capital. Sister Su, I'm done. Let's go and see the patients. All right. Indeed, it's not Udumbara. It should be the thunder duke vine. Thank goodness. Sirs. I'm the village chief of Zhushui Village. I'm Su Ci of Mingjing Office. I'm here to investigate the water sources and villagers' poisoning. That's great. I just came back from filing a report. I thought all of you would only be here in the evening. I didn't expect you to come so quickly. It's so great! -Thank you so much. -Chief. Please get up. Chief. When did you say you went to file a report? I set out before dawn. I reached the government office around 9 o'clock in the morning. Besides you, is there anyone else has been to the capital to report? No. Only me. Miss, please take a look. His pulse is different. He's been poisoned with Udumbara. Look. There's a red line. This means he was poisoned at least five days ago. This is weird. We can't find the poison in the capital. Why would this man come in contact with it? Sir. What do you work as? I'm a craftsman from the Directorate for the Palace Buildings. Recently, I have been making fireworks for the Empress Dowager's birthday banquet. When did your condition worsen? Just a few days ago. We've been busy working on the fireworks for the Empress Dowager's birthday banquet. Take it easy. No. What's wrong? This is a trap. Someone lured us here on purpose. Something is going to happen in the capital. Today is the Empress Dowager's birthday banquet. What could possibly happen? Rushuang. How bad it will be if the two jars of poison are mixed in the fireworks? Sister Su, are you kidding me? How is that possible? Answer me first. This... I... I'm not sure either. But no one in the palace would survive. Also, the powder will be deadly if it's inhaled. Sister Su. I've prepared a huge surprise for them. Detective Su! If we continue to ride at this speed, the horses may not make it for us to go back. The city gate will be closed in an hour. It will be too late then. Let's go. After tailing us for so long, you have finally showed up. Brother Su. You go first. It's urgent. Be careful. Your Majesty. Your Highness. Shall we begin? Mother. Brother. Let's begin. (Anhua Gate) Stop! Who are you? Su Ci of Mingjing Office! Urgent mater. I need to enter the city. Yes! It has already begun. I hope it's not too late. (Zhaoyang Stage) Mother. Today's fireworks are carefully designed by brother. It's very creative. Prince Qi, that's thoughtful of you. It's what I should do. But I'm getting old now. I'm afraid I'd be too tired. Your Highness. I heard that the last two fireworks tonight are very special. One of them is called Gorgeous Peony, whose name is extremely graceful and elegant. As for the last one, it's one of a kind. It's called Auspicious. It is said that there are over 100 shots which can reach the sky, like a phoenix soaring in the sky. It's spectacular. What a pity that my wife does not feel well and is unable to enjoy such spectacular scenery with us. Aunt has always loved to enjoy the fun. She was here this afternoon. But I heard she's not feeling well and uncle sent her home. That's right. Health comes first. All of us are getting old already. We can't act willfully now. Your Highness is right. Mother, what are you talking about? You're not old at all. Here, to your health. Wishing you many happy returns of the day. To Her Highness! May Your Highness be blessed with happiness and longevity. Who's that? Su Ci of Mingjing Office. I have the invitation card from Prince Qi. You may go in. Yes. It's so beautiful. The Gorgeous Peony is really awesome. What a rare sighting. That's right. Your Highness, something happened in your residence. Your Majesty, Your Highness. I have been informed that my wife's condition has worsened. I'm very worried. I would like to take my leave. That's not good. Go back now. Uncle, go home at once. Thank you, Your Majesty. Your Highness. I shall take my leave. Officer Liu. Here. Rushuang. Listen to me. Go home earlier. Why? Don't just use poisonous powder whenever you encounter any danger. You can still run away if you can't beat them. Rushuang. When you get home, don't ever come out. Are you not coming back with me? I might not be coming back today. Don't wait up for me. I'll get going. Why should I listen to that nerd? I'll go. Fei Yuan! Sister Su? Fei Yuan. Sister Su. It's great that you're here. Where will the fireworks be set off? On the south side of the square. Fei Yuan. Something is wrong with the fireworks. They're mixed with poison. What? There's no time to explain. Inform His Highness at once. Lead the way for Detective Su. I'll inform His Highness. Hurry. Yes. Hurry. Young Master. Here. The next one should be the Auspicious. That's right. I bet it will be even more beautiful. Mother, the fireworks are really nice. Your Majesty. Your Highness. The fireworks feast is about to end. Things will easily go wrong at times like this. I'll check on the security matters for safety. Father. Ming. You came just in time. The show is about to begin. Detective Su, here it is. Stop! Miss, please stay away. Stop at once. This is where fireworks are set off. Please leave at once. Stop! Arrest them! Little Su. Little Su. Come on. Your Highness. I'll leave the rest to you. Yes. Why did the fireworks stop? Why did the fireworks stop? This is... Why did it stop? Your Majesty. It looks like Auspicious hasn't been set off. Your Majesty, Your Highness. Assassins broke into the south side where fireworks were set off. They have been subdued. What? To ensure safety, Prince Qi advises everyone to move to the main hall in case there are assassins nearby. Why it's so quiet? Could they have discovered it? Father. Shall we take any actions or... The Auspicious is just part of my plan. My ultimate move is yet to come. No matter what happens tonight, I'm going to take the throne! Li Yu. Return to the banquet and check up on the suicide squads. If they fall into Xiao Yanzhi's hands, kill them all. Yes, my Lord. Ming. Prince Qi is conspiring to rebel. You come with me leading troops to rescue His Majesty! Yes. Young Master. Young Master. Let me carry her. We need to find a room at once. Brother Pei! Brother Pei, what happened to Sister Su? Her head got hit hard and she passed out. Come with me. Come inside. Wait for me. I'll leave her to you. There's poison in the fireworks? This is an attempt to wipe out His Majesty and all the officials. How vicious is that. It's my negligence. Your Majesty, please punish me. Brother, you... You're in charge. Do you think you can just muddle through it by saying that? Your Majesty! Your Highness! Uncle. Why are you here? Your Majesty. Your Highness. I heard there were assassins at the fireworks feast. So I rushed over. Your Majesty, Your Highness. Forgive me for coming late. Prince Yun, please rise. Thank you, Your Highness. This isn't just about the assassins. Someone had added poison to the fireworks. What? How could it happen? Your Majesty. Your Highness. Please investigate this matter thoroughly. Your Highness is right. Please give me a chance to redeem myself and make up for my mistakes by finding out the truth. Your Majesty. Your Highness. The fireworks feast was supervised by him. If he led the investigation on this matter, I'm afraid he'd cover up for himself. So, I hope Your Majesty to hand this matter over to Mingjing Office. Prince Qi. You were responsible for my birthday banquet. Now, something like this happened at the birthday banquet. You should sit this one out. Do it as suggested by Prince Yun. Hand it to Officer Liu of Mingjing Office to investigate the matter. You're right, Your Highness. Yes, Your Highness. Since I'm a suspect I shall take my leave and return to my residence waiting for the result. Hold on. Before we get to the bottom of things, please stay in the palace. What do you mean? Nothing. Your Highness, I'm sorry. Please stay in the palace. Confining and keeping me grounded? Very well. I shall wait here then. Thank you, Your Highness. After this is over I'll pay Your Highness a visit and extend my apologies. Your Highness. The fireworks feast is planned and prepared by you. I have some questions for you. All right. I'll give you my full cooperation. Please come with me. This is the order from the Lord. Your Majesty. Your Highness. Bad news. The craftsmen in charge of fireworks who had been caught earlier just died in prison! What? What happened? According to the coroner, all of them died of poisoning. Perhaps, they were killed to silent them. Who did this? How bold of him! Summon Liu Xuan! Those who are related to the case, bring them here. Have a face-to-face confrontation here! Sister Su. How do you feel? Don't get up in a hurry. How do you feel? The fireworks. How did it go? Don't worry. The fireworks weren't set off. No one's hurt. That's great. But... No. No. Young Master is in trouble! Young Master, look. The weather is so good today. I was worried it would rain. Your Highness. Do you have any further instructions? Have you checked inside and outside the palace? Don't worry. The palace is as secure as an iron bucket. Nothing will go wrong.
