In this chapter, we learn that the Heavenly Demon sect has not made much progress on its array, and that the land immortals are not convinced that they can defeat them. They need to fight slowly and steadily. Worried that the fourth elder has refused to take him with him to the city, the heavenly demon master asks him to stay and help him. He tells the elder that he has been practicing this skill and that he is going to meet the speck zen master of the sect. The two men discuss the strange spiritual energy that has been swirling in a village on the south hill kingdom. They do not know why it is swirling, but they do know that many known magical powers can accomplish this effect. They wonder if there is any other discovery they need to make.
