ROCH 2006 Episode 1 Synopsis
The story starts out with "Scarlett Immortal" Li Mo Chou attacking and leaving 9 palm prints on the wall of the Lu Manorhouse. Mistress Lu and a servant attempt to clean it up, but Master Lu stops them. Master Lu tells his wife and the servants that Li Mo Chou is coming to take her revenge and that that she normally leaves 'x' amount of palm prints for the amount of people in the house she will kill.
Mistress Lu tells her husband there are only 7 people in the household.
Master Lu responds by saying she is also counting his brother and his wife who are both deceased and that she will not spared the children lives either.
Li Mo Chou is taking her revenge because in the past, Li Mo Chou used to be interested in Master Lu's brother but because of her cruel nature, he lost interest in her and marry someone else. Li Mo Chou swore revenge on them.
Later, inside the manor, Master Lu attempts to give his niece, Cheng Ying, a hankerchief that Li Mo Chou once gave his brother, Cheng Ying's dad, as protection for her. Husband and wife argue concerning why he didn't give this to his own daughter, Lu Wu Shuang. The hankerchief ends up being torn and given to each of the 2 girls. Master Lu then sends his servant to take the 2 girls away from the manor house leaving him and his wife alone to face Li Mo Chou.
Li Mo Chou arrives and light up all the candles in the room. You can clearly see that she is now a Taoist nun. Master Lu and his wife attacks Li Mo Chou. Li Mo Chou is clearly superior in her martial arts skills and easily defeats and kill Master and Mistress Lu. The husband and wife try to hold each other hands as they lay dying, but Li Mo Chou, cruelly, steps on their hands preventing them from doing this. She then proceeds to burn down their mansion with Master Lu telling her that her brother have never loved her and that burning down the mansion will not changed that fact. Li Mo Chou quickly leaves the mansion and chased after the girls.
A young boy, Yang Guo, is walking thru the forest singing and holding the chicken that he just stole. The scene shifts to show the servant holding the 2 girls running thru the forest. Li Mo Chou quickly catches up to the servants and the 2 girls. The servant sought to defend the 2 girls by attacking Li Mo Chou, but she quickly kill the servant with her whisk. Li Mo Chou then swept her whisk at one of the girls and capture the little girl to her side. Li Mo Chou sees the hankerchief on the little girl neck and remininsce about the old days when she was knitting it for her old lover. The little girl run away to her cousin, but Li Mo Chou swept her whisk out and capture the other girl. She saw the other part of the hankerchief and say Lu Li Ding, you are too greedy to use one hankerchief to save 2 lives.The 2 girls took advantage of the situation and ran off. Yang Guo runs in and encourage the 2 girls to run some more. Li Mo Chou gives chase and is now determined to kill both girls, but she is stopped by Eastern Heretic Huang Yaoshi's attack.
Huang YaoShi using his vast kung fu sends Cheng Ying over to give Li Mo Chou 2 slaps. Li Mo Chou retaliated by attacking with her poisonous needles that she is tossing like darts. Huang Yaoshi quickly avoided the lethal attack. Li Mo Chou notice the children and attack again, this time aiming one of the needles at Cheng Ying. Cheng Ying is poisoned and Li Mou Chou escapes, taking Lu Wu Shuang as her prisoner.
In the distance, a loud voice can be heard yelling Yang Guo's name in the forest, and Yang Guo runs off in response to that voice, calling out uncle. Huang YaoShi realizes it is his son in law, Guo Jing, and does not want to meet up with him, so he leaves taking Cheng Ying with him and attempts to cure her of Li Mo chou's poison.
Some months later, Guo Jing is seen taking Yang Guo to Quanzhen Sect up on top of Mt Zhong Nan. Guo Jing explains to Yang Guo that because he knows the kung fu "Toad Stance", he is exiled from Peach Blossom Island. This is due to the fact that Ou Yang Fang is the only expert alive who knows that martial arts, and his grandmaster's 5 sworns companions were killed by Ou Yang Fang. Since his grandmaster is very old and also blind, it is Yang Guo who must leave Peach Blossom Island.
The scenes shift to show that Quanzhen is under attack.
Guo Jing and Yang Guo stop to rest and eat. Discussing things further, Yang Guo ask why does everyone including Guo Jing's wife, Huang Rong, hates his father, Yang Kang. Yang Guo also then accuse Guo Jing and Huang Rong of killing his father. Guo Jing angrily responded by saying no and asking Yang Guo who told him this nonsense and hitting the stone slab that one of the Quanzhen Sect's 7 Master wrote, causing it to break. Guo Jing tells Yang Guo that he will tell him the real story when he grows up, but that he and Huang Rong did not killed his father. He then tells Yang Guo to drink up and get ready to continue their journy up to Chong Yang Palace.
Meanwhile, 2 Quanzhen Taoist priests, hiding nearby in the wood, saw this and attemps to run back to the school to report this incident.
Guo Jing chase after them and inform them that he wants to go up to Quanzhen School, but the taoist priest called him a pervert and attack him. Guo Jing easily defeat them but let them go. Guo Jing and Yang Guo continue their ascent up the mountain to Quanzhen School. Upon arriving near Chang Yong Palace, Guo Jing notice that the schol is under attack. He tells Yang Guo to hide and he heads up alone to help. He is stopped by 7 Taoist priest using a special martial arts formation called "The Big Dipper Formation." Guo Jing defeats the first group but quickly reinforcement arrives. Guo Jing tries to reason with their leader, Zhao Zhi Jing, telling them he is Guo Jing and that he is a friend, but Zhao Zhi Jing refuses to listen. Guo Jing fights against the 7 squadrons of Taoist Priests.
While Guo Jing is fighting against the many squadrons of Quanzhen Taoist monks, Yang Guo is captured by a young Taoist priest. Yang Guo however tricks the young Taoist priest and tied him up instead and heads toward Chang Yong Palace.
Guo Jing is still seen fighting against the 7 squadrons. However, a horn to signify that something major is happenning up
at Chang Yong Palace alarms all involves in the fight. Guo JIng quickly ends the fight and fly toward Chang Yong Palace. He quickly defeats the invaders and greet the 7 Masters of Quanzhen. However, the invaders were still not done, and their leader arrive. They are Mongolians and one of them is a nobleman, Prince Huo Dou. The 2 engage in dialogue with Guo Jing demanding to know who he is. Guo Jing say he is just a disciple of Quanzhen and demands why they are attacking Quanzhen. Guo Jing and Huo Dou fights and Guo Jing easily defeats Huo Dou. Huo Dou left with his entourage.
Qiu Chu Ji, one of the 7 Quanzhen master, leads Guo Jing to the outskirt of where the old tomb is and explain to him why they were under attack. Basically, Li Mo Chou announce to the martials world that her martial sister, Xiao Long Nu, when she
turns 18, will married whoever can defeat her in martial arts. Many men lusted after Li Mo Chou, but due to her cruel nature no one dared approached her. Hearing that she have a younger martial sister who is prettier than her, they all agreed to come up her birthday and claim Xiao Long Nu and the treasures within the tomb for their own.
The scenes then shift to the invaders outside of the ancient tomb. Li Mo Chou and her disciples are also there hidden to the side. Prince Hou Dou announce his intention to marry Xiao Long Nu. From the tomb, a hive of bee flies out and attack the invader. Li Mo Chou and her disciple decides not to go into the tomb and leaves.
The scene shift back to Chang Yong Palace where Guo Jing makes Yang Guo joins Quanzhen Sect and become their disciple. Yang Guo relunctantly do so. Guo Jing leaves Yang Guo there at Quanzhen. Yang Guo cries out for Guo Jing, but his new Quanzhen master, Zhao Zhi Jing, stops him.
Yang Guo is sitting in class with a bunch of other Quanzhen’s students in a class listening to a lecture by his master Zhao Zhi Jing. Yang Guo basically smart mouth off to his teacher and pisses his teacher off.
Yang Guo is then seen working various chores around Quanzhen School. The young Taoist priest, Lu Qing Du, that originally capture Yang Guo when Yang Guo first went up the mountain with Guo Jing is seen bossing him around. Yang Guo is treated roughly but he is also seen doing mean stuff to this Taoist priest as well. In one instance, he pees on the guy while the guy is sleeping making it seems like the guy peed in his own pants while he was sleeping.
