Wenwu thinks that her village’s people are trapping Ying Li, and he wants to go there and destroy the whole town to release Ying Li. But Shang and Xialing are not ready to do it, so they decide to go to the village by themselves to warn the village about the coming ambush.
The village tells them that one day some dark creatures attacked the village, and their ancestors fought very bravely against those dark creatures, but they were no match against the powers of those dark creatures.
Then a Magical angel arrives, which saves the village from those dark creatures and traps them in a tunnel. That magical angel is the one who gave the village those magical powers. They reveal that Xu Wenwu is not the only person who is coming to open that closed tunnel.
