It's been a long time since they've been in the middle of a battle, but they finally make it to the end. The tree monster is dead, but the emerald bird has returned to its second soul ring, which seems to have reproduced itself. Dong gets back into the gates of summoning. He realizes something's happened to him, but he doesn't know what it is. He wakes up to find a little monkey. He's not sure what's going on, but it's clear that he's in a bad mood. The staff of the spirit-transferring pagoda has left, and bing wants to talk to him. bing tells him that they're giving him six tickets to the "spirit-rising platform" , which means he can enter the platform through any pagoda six months from now. This is a big deal, since he was supposed to meet the monster in the first place. But bing says that he needs to report this to the authorities, so he'll get an invitation to join the pagoda or study at the academy. Wow, that's a lot of money for a guy who didn't even know he had to meet a monster. Aww, thanks. The golden rings on feng's ring and the purple rings on bing's are still there, but bing still has a problem. He needs to figure out if the golden ring is a soul or a spirit. He wants to call it "the golden demon" .
