    Episode 20 - Monkey fights the Fox Demons


    Venerable Monk! I come to harm you yet you treat me so well. You must leave, you are no match for the Thousand Year old Fox Demon!

    The Lesser Fox Demon goes to find the head priest and is shocked to find Sandy, she urges him to gamble with her. Tang suddenly hears the scream of a woman and goes outside to find So So. She tries to seduce him, but fails and accidentally twists her ankle, when she finds Tang carefully helps her to massage her wound, she cannot resist telling him that he must run away to avoid the thousand-year-old Fox Demon from harming him. So So unwillingly returns to the Elder Fox Demon’s lair and says that she met a handsome and outstanding priest and that the Demon must go herself. When the Fox Demon arrives at Fat Wah Temple and sees this “priest” she cannot resist seducing him. Sandy finally overcomes the Lesser Fox and Monkey causes the Elder demon to show her true self, but she manages to escape. So So takes Monkey and co to the secret lair and Monkey finds his way deep into the den to fight with the demon, the Fox is no match for him and burns to death, but as she dies she uses a part of her tail to enter Piggy’s body. After praying for all the innocent souls at the Fat Wah temple, Tang asks So So why she does not return to her home to be reunited with her family, So So tells that since she was very young, she has been captured by the Foxes and she has no friends or family, she pleads with him to let her travel with them to seek the scriptures and learn the ways of Buddhism, Tang agrees. Monkey finds that Piggy has been possessed by a demon, but cannot exorcise him no matter how hard they try, Monkey can only go to the underworld to consult the King of Hell. However, the underworld has been shaken up greatly by the Sun’s black spot and the King of Hell is having a major headache, he can only say that this has something to do with the Black Wind Demon who was once defeated by the Yellow King but has since been recruiting his troops, Monkey can but pray for help from the Buddha of the underworlds. The four arrive at a small village and see and an old lady who for the sake of some dog hairs is repeatedly bitten by the dog, it turns out she has been told to collect the hair from forty-nine dogs to give to a Taoist Priest in exchange for an exorcism for her son, Monkey uses a plan to reveal that the priest is a con. They all follow the old lady home and see that her son has the appearance of a vampire, but her daughter in law is very beautiful. They decide to use a magic powder to make the daughter in law show her real self.



    Damn! She won again - to be hit by the two dog teeth clubs will really hurt!!

    Episode 21 - Piggy has even worse luck and is affected by Zombie Poison


    Painted Face Ghost - just look in the mirror and you will see why your husband is so afraid of you!

    Monkey finds out that the daughter in law is a Painted Face Ghost and hatches a plan to show her true image, when her husband sees this he is terrified. The ghost weeps that there is no wrong to truly love a person. Tang points out that humans and ghosts are different and that this is not true love but a wrong love. Sandy discovers a sand clock which can cause time to stand still or go backwards, everyone is a little doubtful of him, saying that they are hungry and they should go and ask for food, Sandy is annoyed. Sandy knows of a kind-hearted lady who is giving out food and returns to the old temple with some rice porridge and buns. Monkey suddenly kicks away the bowl of porridge which So So is handing to Tang, saying there is a problem with the food, unfortunately Piggy has already eaten his portion. At this time the lady arrives and shakes a bell, Monkey uses his demon seeking eyes to see that she is a ten-thousand year old Zombie and is using the rice porridge to control the villagers. As Monkey is about to fight the zombie, he is intercepted by Piggy and she escapes. Monkey is angry at Piggy for firstly succumbing to the demon’s magic, then being possessed by the fox demon and now being affected by the zombie poison, saying how unlucky he really is. Monkey enters the village to investigate and meets a young boy called Kwong Jai who is peering at the zombie who is giving out blood porridge to the villagers – it turns out that Kwong’s parents are also being controlled by the zombie and he hopes to defeat her and rescue his parents, Monkey agrees to help him all the way. Monkey is pleased to find Na Ja’s appearance on the scene, Na Ja points out that there is some chaos in the Heavenly Palace so he has come down to the Earth for some fun, Monkey asks him to look after Tang whilst he goes to fight the Zombie. Sandy finds that Piggy is not right and as he tells Tang to recite a chant to control him, he is shocked to find that Na Ja is aiming a sword straight at Tang’s heart, he immediately uses his time reversal device to save his master, but he makes some mistakes and causes Tang to be stabbed ten times over. Monkey rescues his master and uses magic messaging to contact Siu Bat to find out what is happening, he finds out that Na Ja has killed his father for the sake of a female demon and is on the run. At this time, the Zombie arrives with her army and Kwong uses his catapult to send Sandy’s Soul Mixing Thunderball straight into the mouth of the Zombie, who disintegrates into a pile of ashes and dust.

    Episode 22 - The Dream Demon enters dreams to kill Tang


    Tang - I am the Dream Demon and I will send you to hell!

    Tang and his companions continue on their way arrive at the Black Wind Mountain. Tang suddenly finds that he cannot find anyone and the Dream Demon appears, saying that he must take him to the underworld; Monkey, Sandy and So So also see the Dream Demon in each of their dreams and know that he wants to kill Tang, Monkey warns them all not to wake up. The Black Wind Demon scolds Dream Demon for failing his task and the Nine Child Demon Mother takes the chance to make things worse. Sandy tries to make Tang open his eyes, but even though his eyes are open, he is still sleeping, Monkey takes Tang for a ride on a cloud, but returns to find that Sandy and Piggy are injured and So So has been captured by the Demon Mother. Sandy has improved the Lover’s magic pillow and they all join together in their sleep to fight the Dream Demon. Monkey heads to the Heavenly Palace to seek the help of Tai Pak, Tai Pak gives him a pouch and instructs him to use the Magic Mirror to shine a path of light into the Black Wind Mountain. Inside the pouch is a piece of paper with some words written on it, Tang and Monkey ponder over its meaning and are suddenly enlightened. Monkey consults the oracle to find out where the Magic Mirror is kept and heads to the Eastern Sea, however the Eastern Dragon King points out that the mirror is kept with General Guen Lim (Sandy) for repairs. Monkey rushes to question Sandy about the mirror and Sandy doesn’t realise that his Pa Kua mirror is the Magic Mirror. Tang, Monkey and the Dream Demon meet again in their dreams and Dream Demon cannot believe that he can be injured by Monkey, it turns out that it is not he who has entered their dreams, but that they have entered into his dream. After Monkey has destroyed the Dream Demon, he takes the Magic Mirror to Er Mei Mountain and successfully shines a path of light to the Black Wind Mountain, also causing the blessing of the Fox demon spirit which is inside Piggy. Buddha appears and points out that Black Wind Mountain is the home of the Great Demon, instructing them that they must retrieve the scriptures and also collect he two extra-terrestrial rocks before they can control the Great Demon. On the other hand, the Black Wind Demon has called together a hundred thousand spirits to prepare his vengeance against the defeat by the Yellow King so many years ago.

    Episode 23 - Purple Orchid is struck by the Icy Poison


    For me to stay with you will just be a hindrance. I will go to the temple and study the Buddhist ways.

Tang is pleased to see that So So has escaped from danger, but when Monkey sees her he uses his staff to beat her. Sandy is disappointed that his inventions cannot even overcome small ghosts, Monkey consoles him, saying that he must learn to stand up after his falls and most important is to improve himself.

The hunter points out that the Gate of the Northern Extremes will close in an hour and urges Monkey to give up, Monkey insists that he must go and find Snow Soul, but is once again overcome by the cold. It turns out that the hunter is Snow Soul in disguise, and wants to play games with Monkey , Monkey doesn’t know what to make of this. Monkey suddenly has an idea and lays on a bet with Snow Soul.

    Episode 24 - Monkey is tested by the Nine Heaven Fairy


    I have stolen your begging place and I am not going to give it back. What are you going to do about that?

    Monkey says that if he can manage to borrow the Demon Frightening Weave then Snow Soul must also lend him the Snow Soul Pearl, Snow Soul agrees, but he must go to the Desert City and become a beggar and not use magic to move the Nine Heaven Fairy within three days. Monkey puts away his dignity and becomes a beggar, he is chased away by traders and mocked by children but is defenceless against them. Piggy goes to get water from the stream and meets with White Spider who is being chased and beaten by the Lizard Demon, who Piggy chases away. White Spider showers him with praises about his masculinity and personality and Piggy is very flattered, he pleads with Tang to let her travel with them. White Spider knows of Tang’s identity and makes a decision. Monkey asks the beggar who has taken his space to move away, the beggar tells monky to sing, dance and do somersaults, and tells him to crawl before him, where there is a puddle of urine on the ground, Monkey grits his teeth and crawls through. Monkey gives the rice he begged so hard for to a girl and carries her home, when her finds out that she has a pregnant mother Yeung Hak Leung, he gives the only money he has to her. Piggy clings to White Spider and she finds him disgusting, but she still praises him. On Monkey’s last day of being a beggar, the guards do everything they can to send him away, at this time, the young girl once again begs him to help her mother who is about to give birth, Monkey follows her home and carries her to find a midwife. After Little Hak has been born, Monkey returns to the market but is stricken to find that the Nine Heaven Fairy disappears before his eyes. Monkey bids farewell to Hak Leung and she asks him if he regrets helping her out, Monkey honestly says that it has all been worthwhile, Hak Leung gives him Little Hak to take away with him, Monkey is very shocked. (It turns out that Little Hak is the weaving tool he has been seeking.) Monkey takes the Demon Frightening Weave to show Snow Soul and she spits out the pearl, telling him to remember the anniversary of her death, Monkey is shocked to find that the pearl is her inner spirit and to lose this spirit will cause her to disintegrate.


    I am the Monkey King - must I really crawl through this puddle of horse pee?

    Episode 25 - Piggy is in love with the White Spider


    Purple Orchid - you must wait for me!

    Monkey is willing to use his own inner spirit to save Snow Soul and she is overjoyed, Monkey then find out that he has been tricked again. Monkey goes to check on Tang before he heads for the centre of the earth and warns Piggy to be wary of the White Spider, Piggy gives him some lucky goad mud. Monkey also goes to visit Purple Orchid and tells her to wait for him to return. White Spider gives Piggy her picture and he is moved but Tang warns him to be careful of being seduced by her charms, but Piggy misunderstands his words. Monkey successfully retrieves the fire from the Centre of the Earth and feeds the pill by mouth to Orchid. She wakes and asks him how he felt when he kissed her, Monkey tells her of his feelings and kisses her again. Orchid notices that another of Monkey’s golden hairs has fallen and Monkey realises that he has reached the “With Love” stage of his life. Monkey rejoins the troupe in the quest for the scriptures and is shocked to find that Piggy has changed his image for the sake of White Spider, Tang sighs that people must learn a lesson before they realise their wrongs. They soon arrive at the Western Realms and find that the villagers are sacrificing children to the gods. Monkey and Piggy change into offerings and find that the so-called “gods” are just the steeds and treasures of the gods who are taking advantage of the chaos in the heavens to cause some trouble on the earth. Just as White Spider wants to seduce Piggy, the Nine Dragon Son in Law rushes in and accuses Piggy of having an affair with his wife and wants the flesh of Tang in return, Monkey realises this is a trick and threatens him until he leaves and also sends White Spider away, Piggy says he would rather leave the band and be with her, Tang tries to stop him. Monkey and Sandy decide that they will make White Spider unable to tell lies and ask Tang to lend his beads and make a wish, together with a soup made from Tiger’s tooth and Carp eyes, they trick her into drinking this whilst the three smile secretly. When Piggy hears that White Spider has been tricking his feelings and playing tricks on him and says that he should have more self evaluation, he is very hurt and White Spider knows her own pains.

    Angry

    I'm furious about this serie. I hardly ever rant on this forum or anywhere at all. But this time this serie has really pushed all my buttons. <IMG SRC="smilies/rant.gif" border="0">
    How could they destroy such a literary masterpiece? Are those people insane that wrote the script? Have they no respect at all for the deceased author Wu ChengEng? Can't they bring up the decency to respect the religion and gods of other people?
    <IMG SRC="smilies/scold.gif" border="0">
    Changing the plot a bit for the sake of the serie is allowed, in my opinion. However the core and the essence of the original story line has to be preserved. This is not the case in this serie.
    Also the people here have hardly done any background research on Chinese mythology. Even if they did it was just perhaps a glance through a book or 2. <IMG SRC="smilies/mad.gif" border="0">
    They gave Sun WuKong (Dicky) all the mythological encounters of the other (Chinese) deities.
    The Supreme Demon in this serie did exist in Chinese Mythology. But the Jade Emperor dealt with him personally and destroyed him completely after an intense battle that lasted for days. And out of awe all the other Chinese deities, immortals proclaimed the Jade Emperor to be the supreme ruler of the 3 worlds.
    So Sun WuKong, Tang Monk had nothing to do with this Supreme Demon.
    <IMG SRC="smilies/lecture.gif" border="0">
    Chinese immortals, deities were not supposed to fall in love. When these gods, immortals attain immortality they rid themselves from all wordly desires and feelings. That is how the achieve enlightment and become immortals or gods. This is common knowledge in all books concerning Chinese mythology, if the producers even took the time to read they would know it. <IMG SRC="smilies/angrystick.gif" border="0">
    That's why Zhu BaJie was banned from the Celestial court, because he wasn't ready for immortality. Also that's why one of the famous 8 Immortals had to endure so many trials. Lu DongBin had to follow a serie of trials as punishment for breaking the laws of heaven for falling in love.
    Also I feel that the people have crossed over the line between innocent mockery to plain blasphemy. I mean shouldn't the producers at least try to respect the religions of other people. Or is it because they believe in a different religion, that they think theyhave the right to mock the gods of other people?
    Also they are giving the next generation an entire faulty image of a classical novel. This novel survived the ravages of time, but will it now survive the attacks of philistines of HK showbusiness? Only time will tell.
    Thanks for reading this rant of mine.

    Episode 26 – A man’s greatest pain is that of love


    Oh no! I even said the part I didn't want to say - how did that happen?

    Piggy is distraught and Monkey and Sandy do their best to console him, White Spider begs with Piggy not to leave her, but she cannot control herself from speaking more criticisms of Piggy and her reasons for getting close to him, Piggy is both devastated and angry, showing that a man’s greatest pain is that of love. Tang reckons that Piggy should be grateful to White Spider for showing him clearly his own bad points, Piggy misunderstands Tang’s words and thinks that White Spider’s actions are to force him to change his ways, Tang doesn’t know whether to laugh or cry. Piggy happily goes to find White Spider, Monkey sighs at his pig-headedness. Tang and the others pass by the Three Star Temple and meet with the Fake Tai Sheung, they are all sucked into his Eight Treasures Bag. Only the Pure Faith Royal Urn at the bottom of the lake can surpass the power of the bag. Monkey takes his chance as the demons poke at the bag with their swords to pass into the swords and escape to seek the Royal Urn. It turns out that the fake Tai Sheung is one of the Great Demon’s disciples and the Great Demon instructs him to destroy all of them to prevent them from getting in the way of his plans to take over the universe. The demons decide to use poison juice to poison them all and Piggy and the others are terrified. Monkey brings back a little dragon , Sandy points out that he has to read the scriptures on the dragon’s back before it can return to its true form. At this time, the demons start to pour the poison juice into the bag, but they all jump into the Royal Urn and save themselves from this fate. Tang reads out the scripture on the scriptures on the Urn and sends out the Buddhist Light to destroy the demons and the fake Tai Sheung. Piggy and co go to ask for food, White Spider says the wrong thing and nearly leaves them without food, Monkey and Sandy decide to let her go back to normal so they give her diarrhoea. White Spider finds that she can lie again and is very happy. Piggy is hungry and sneakily goes to steal some yams, when he finds that someone else has stolen his stolen yams, he decides to set a trap to find that person.


    How can we kill them so we can still eat Tang flesh? With fire or with water?

    Episode 27 – Piggy elopes with White Spider


    You want me to tempt Piggy away - what do I get in return?

    Piggy tempts the thief with roasted yams, but he ends up eating them all himself so he is unsuccessful; Monkey changes the plan and uses fruit as bait but this is ruined by Piggy; finally, they use buns to tempt out the thieves. Monkey follows them to the hill and finds out that they are the stone guardians to the royal tomb, after absorbing the energy from the sun and moon, they became demons but they have no skills and can only steal to feed themselves. In a stroke of inspiration, Monkey suggests that they take Piggy as a master and learn to farm for their own food. When Lee Ching is clearing out some odd things, they find Madame Lee’s will and a stone, it turns out that this stone is related to Na Ja’s birth.

    Monkey and Sandy are relentless to White Spider and she becomes very frustrated, she comes between the brotherhood of Piggy and the others and urges him to elope with her. Piggy is torn between his quest and the beauty but finally agrees to leave with her. Monkey sees that White Spider is leaving and is overjoyed, Piggy pretends to be unhappy and quietly leaves in the evening. The Nine Dragon Son-in-law comes to seek White Spider and it becomes apparent that they were just acting last time so that they could eat Tang flesh. At this time, Piggy arrives and he is quickly captured as they announce that if they can’t eat Tang flesh, they will eat Piggy flesh instead, Piggy is totally shocked. Sandy finds that Piggy has left, leaving a note, but no-one can understand what he has written. Piggy struggles free from the spider web and points at the couple saying that only one of them can survive, for the sake of her own life, White Spider throws herself at Piggy once more, Piggy is totally disappointed. Everyone sees that Piggy has returned and are overjoyed, Piggy forces a smile, but Monkey knows that he cannot let go of his love for White Spider. On their way, Piggy finds a lonely beetle and cannot help but pour out his feelings, Monkey and Sandy try to comfort him as Piggy announces he will never love women again because he hates women.

    Wow! We finally get to see a man!!

    Tang and his disciples arrive at the All Lady Valley and meet with a girl who falls from her horse, the girl points out that someone is chasing her, when she realises that Dragon Horse is a horse, she excitedly strokes him. A group of women from the Nu-er Country arrives and accuse Tang and his band of kidnapping their princess. It turns out that this girl is the princess and she wants to leave the country and see what life is like outside, but the ladies warn her that the country is cursed and if she was to leave the boundaries of Nu-er then she would die of old age, with that they recapture the princess and take her away.

    Tang and his companions enter the Nu-er country and all the women are very excited at the sight of the men, the four males are crazily kissed and harassed and are frightened into running away. At this time, one girl brings out an old lady and asks that they fulfil her one last wish to be able to touch a man, Tang agrees and after the granny strokes his face, she peacefully passes away. The women warn Tang not to drink from the Mother and Child River, otherwise they will become pregnant. Monkey and the others arrive at the palace and are shocked to find out that Piggy has drunk from the river, the Queen tells of the story of how the country was formed and the curse. Piggy tries all sorts of methods to get rid of the baby, but Tang says that if it is the will of the heavens then he should give birth to it; Sandy points out that he will be the first man to give birth to a child and is of much experimental worth, Piggy says he hates women and he will not give birth to one.

    Sandy finds out from the women that there is a well in the gardens of the palace which will abort the child if you drink from it and is pleased. The Queen calls for Piggy and asks him his feelings about bearing a child, Piggy tells of his reasons for hating women and the Queen is surprised to see that even men have a delicate side, explaining to him how lucky it is to have a daughter, Piggy is moved. Sandy steals some water from the well and passes it to Piggy, then he finds out that Piggy is determined to give birth to his daughter, Sandy is so shocked that he faints. Everyone asks Sandy why he has fainted. Sandy says that the Buddha has appeared to him in his dreams saying that he will take away Piggy’s daughter and return her to him after he has changed his ways for the better, at this time, Piggy suddenly feels a pain in his abdomen and rushes for the lavatory. After much interrogation from Monkey, Sandy tells all and they are very shocked. When Sandy sees Piggy holding a doll and mourning his daughter he feels very guilty.


    Miss - you are too excitable!

    Your Majesty - sleep well. I have the authority and will be leaving now.

    The Princess hears Monkey describing the world outside and she is more and more intrigued and wants to go out and look around, the Queen is frightened and stops her, Monkey agrees that after their quest he will help them to stop the curse. Sandy knows that Piggy misses his daughter and causes him to lose his appetite for several days and he is very upset. Tang bids farewell to the Queen, but she doesn’t want him to leave so she lays a bet with Tang. Tang can only tell her stories from the Buddhist scriptures and finally he convinces her to give them the authority to leave. The Princess is not afraid of the curse and is insistent on following Tang and his disciples on their journey, as soon as she leaves the country, her hair turns white and the further she goes the older she becomes, but she has no regrets and believes that this is the happiest time of her life.

    Tang and his companions arrive at the Che Chi Country and see that the guards are whipping the monks and are curious. Tang offers himself to be beaten in order to overcome their hatred, Monkey can do nothing, but secretly uses magic to protect his master from the pain whilst Sandy uses the Thunderball to rescue the monks. It turns out that after the citizens started to worship Buddha, they had all become ill or died, then three Taoist priests had cured them with some charmed water and said that the monks were bad luck and they must destroy the Buddhists. Monkey feels that something is not right and decides to go to Chi On Temple to investigate, he finds that there is poison in the well. In the palace, the King takes the ailment from the Taoists and feels much revived, they encourage the King to continue taking their medicine to extend his life and health.

At this time, a young Taoist comes forward to challenge him, Ox Demon decides to play along with him, when he finds out that his Taoist is a female demon in disguise, he stops fighting, the demon suggests he goes for a drink with her, but afterwards Ox Demon feels a little unwell and realises he has fallen for her trick. Tang and his disciples go and see the King and Monkey sees with his Magic Eyes that the three Taoist priests are the Tiger Demon, Deer Demon and Goat Demon, he agrees to fight against them in open battle. The three demons are defeated and drink Monkey’s “Each Word from the Heart” potion and tell the truth that they are demons. The demons find themselves in trouble and Monkey is about to get rid of them, but then Ox Demon and the lady demon arrive and Ox Demon’s fist flies straight towards Monkey.

    Episode 30 – Sandy steps out to rescue the Seven Treasures


    Lady Demon - why did you have to use me?

    Monkey allows Ox Demon to attack him without reacting as he continually reminds him of their brotherhood, his family ties to Iron Fan and Red Boy to try and revive him, Ox Demon responds. Tang says that this is because he still has ties in his heart and it is this which the demon is using to control him, after struggling for a while, Ox Demon wakes up. He understands that the female demon is only using him to rescue her three demon brothers and lets her go free.

    Monkey and Sandy see that Piggy is still not eating and are very worried, when they see the method that an old lady is using to feed her ducks, they get a flash of inspiration. Monkey follow this method to force feed Piggy, but fail. Monkey finally uses Piggy’s love for his daughter to successfully convince him to eat. White Bone follows the instruction of practising from the Great Demon and improves greatly, the Great Demon gives her the “Fire Spirit Pearl” to eat and sends her to the North Mongshan to rescue the Blood Demon. The Blood Demon successfully breaks through the mountain and joyously thanks the Great Demon.

    The foursome finally arrive at the Thunder Sound Temple and the Buddha gives them the Shell-leaf Sutra, instructing Monkey to unite with the other extra-terrestrial meteor to seal in the Great Demon. Tang and his disciples celebrate their successful quest and return to the Heavenly Palace to receive their rewards from the Jade Emperor. Monkey meets with Yee Long San and Siu Bat again and is puzzled at their sudden change of attitude against him, he feels there is something wrong and Tang and Sandy also feel a little uneasy and think that the Thunder Sound Temple and the Palace are fakes. At this time, Piggy comes in with his daughter Chu Yuen and Sandy admits that the the baby had been aborted a long time ago and that Chu Yuen is a fake, it turns out that this is an elaborate trick by the Seven Treasures Umbrella. Sandy points out that Seven Treasures is a precious treasure belonging to the Buddha himself and is the peak of the magical items, but is under the control of the Great Demon, he pleads with Tang to capture the Seven Treasures Sprite. When Lee Ching is meditating, he feels the vibration of the stone left by his wife and sees it is glowing, what is more astounding is that the stone allows him to have a telepathy with Monkey. Seven Treasures holds Monkey and Sandy captive inside her umbrella and wants to eat the flesh of Tang, Tang starts to recite a chant and Seven Treasures disappears, becoming a sacred bead. Monkey wants to destroy the bead, but Sandy attempts to protect her and becomes injured in the process, the bead becomes human again and turns to Sandy gratefully.


    Chu Yuen! Daddy really misses you!

    Episode 31 – Na Ja is the Extra-terrestrial Rock


    If you don't learn to love yourself - how can you expect others to love you?

    Tang congratulates Sandy for rescuing Seven Treasures with his loving heart. Piggy is still wary of her but Tang says that he should be more forgiving. Sandy works day and night to repair Seven Treasure’s parasol and after he has completed it, he collapses with exhaustion, Seven Treasure is very moved. Lee Ching and his son suddenly arrives saying that the rock which is related to Na Ja has telepathy with Monkey, after tests from Sandy, he concludes that Na Ja is the other rock from space. Lee Ching and his son goes to find Na Ja to stop him from falling into the hands of the demons. Tang and co see that life is chaotic for the people and are angry that they have been tricked by the fake Western Heaven, wasting their time on the real quest.

    The Tang Chief Astronomer goes to see the Tang Emperor and points out that his time is nearing an end, but with the danger comes a glimmer of hope, the Emperor sighs that even though he is the emperor he still cannot rescue his people. With the pestilence of insect storms, thieving of their food stores, he can only sigh at the broken buildings and the endless rainstorms. The Blood Demon wreaks havoc in the heavens and sucks the blood of the immortals, Orchid and the Jade Emperor take refuge in the Heaven Protecting Jade Seal and the Emperor blames himself for being unable to protect the Palace. Orchid pleads with him to let her go down to the Earth to seek Tang and the others to prevent them from falling victim to the Blood Demon. Na Ja is still held in a fight against the demonic ways, the Great Demon changes into Madame Lee to try and convince him and finally he succumbs and pledges his allegiance to the Great Demon, who passes onto him the greatest skill of the “Demonic Curse Sutra”.

    Purple Orchid finds Monkey and tells him that Blood Demon is looking for them. Tang faces a rock and recites the scriptures to try and rid Na Ja of his evil and pull him from the demons. Meanwhile, whilst Na Ja is meditating, he hears the chants of Buddhist scripts and feels very uncomfortable and re-enters the conflict between heaven and hell. The Blood Demon sees that one minute Na Ja is vowing to kill Tang and then next minute he is calling for his mother and is puzzled. Blood Demon reports this to the Great Demon and says that Na Ja cannot be depended upon, but the Great Demon takes no notice. The time to retrieve the scriptures has only one month remaining , Tang worries this is not enough, but his disciples remind him that no-one can break their confidence and determination in reaching their goal, nor can they come between their allegiance, Tang is comforted in hearing this. The four finally arrive at the real Thunder Sound Temple and Tang puts on his robes to enter the Temple.


    It is ironic that I am the one chosen by the heavens but I cannot rescue my own people.

    Episode 32 – The Foursome meet their final challenge


    How can a scripture have no words??

    As Tang and his disciples enter the Temple, they find that the Shell-leaf Sutra is a wordless script, Monkey scorns the motives of the high priests and they point out that to gain the real scripture they must enter the stone tablet and receive the final challenges of Greed, Hatred and Lust, as Piggy says that this is impossible, Tang has already led the way into the tablet. Firstly as Tang enters the tablet, he is met with Buddha who reminds him he is entering into a demonic fantasy world and he will only pass through the challenges with a true heart. Tang meets the Queen of Nu-er again, she is scorning him for being unable to keep his promise of breaking their curse and she forces him to become her consort, otherwise she will murder all the nuns in her country, for the sake of the innocents, Tang agrees to this. Some years later, Tang has a large family with many sons and daughters, but he is unhappy and becomes terminally ill…

    As for Piggy, he pleads with Buddha to return him to being General Tin Fung and vows that he will only love White Spider and wants to be married to her, Buddha agrees. Piggy is returned to his handsome and charming self and searches high and low for White Spider, but when they are reunited, it is Piggy who turns and runs away. When Piggy hears that White Spider has died with regret, his affections turn to her niece the Red Spider and placed the truth magic into her drink to see if her affections are the same…

    Seven Treasures admits to Tang that she has fallen in love with Sandy, Tang indicates that Sandy has given his life to Buddha, but Seven Treasures is willing to sacrifice herself in the hope that she will one day move him, Tang says she must leave this to fate. For Sandy’s turn to be tested: his former life was the only son of the Tsang family, Sandy gained success in his education but he was prevented from associating with their enemies the Lo family, Sandy keeps asking the reason why. Meanwhile, Piggy sees from outside the tablet that the daughter of the Lo family is no other than Seven Treasures.


    If you don't agree to be my consort, I will kill all the nuns in my country.

    Yuet Lo says our love will last three lifetimes, and moreover your wish is also my wish!

As Monkey and the others head out to look for the Great Demon, they are stopped by Fire Wing and is sucked into the stomach of Fire Wing, Purple Orchid protects them with her Heavenly Robe whilst Monkey looks around for an exit. Tai Sheung, Guanyin and Buddha force their souls into Sandy, Piggy and Tang and help them to hold back the Great Demon from emerging from his cell. White Bone starts to remember excerpts of her times with Monkey and feels moved, she doesn’t know what to do about Na Ja’s love for her.

    Monkey and Buddha-Tang arrive at the Great Demon’s cave but are afraid to enter without care. Meanwhile, Purple Orchid decides to sacrifice herself to take the power of her Heavenly Robe to its limits, destroying Fire Wing in the process to rescue the world from evil. Lee Ching persuades Na Ja to let go of the demonic ways, admitting that in the past he pushed him so hard because he just wanted to see his son successful in life, but now he just wants for Na Ja to continue to live with his life. Na Ja regains a shred of morals , but he hears the Great Demon trying to come between him and his father, finally he convinces Na Ja to send the spear towards his father. Buddha says that the two rocks must join and couple this with the Sutra, Tang’s belief that good will defeat evil and Seven Treasure’s determination will beat the Demon, however their work is still in vain and Seven Treasures loses her last strength and dies.

    Monkey is sucked into a dark cavern and White Bone follows her instruction to destroy him, Monkey reckons her demonic side has taken over completely and decides to sacrifice her.

When they find out that Monkey and Na Ja have died, everyone is devastated and vow to fight to the death, Tang, Piggy and Sandy are beaten into mortality by the Demon but then two rocks fall from the skies.


    If by sacrificing myself I can help save the world, I am willing.
