In this brief scene, Pan lunhui and the monk discuss the situation at hand. The monk tells Pan that he has been drinking too much medicine and that he is in danger because he provoked the emperor too quickly. He apologizes for his rashness and says that he should have stayed away from the palace. He says that before they went there, he gnawed the divination sticks so that the monk could not tell the fortune and promised to protect him. He is amazed at the monk's pitiful and expressionless behavior and wonders why the monk is so dependent on him for protection. He tells the monk that he would not have been so miserable if the monk had used only a tenth of his power to control the spell that he cast on him. Pan says that ghost mastery depends on one's power and that if he were strong enough to summon the monk, why would he summon him? The monk advises Pan to go to the watanabe and take the blessing fish with him.
