Affected by the poison, Hak is driven off the edge of a cliff and hangs perilously by one arm. Yona runs towards him but is caught by the hair by Tae-Jun. She grabs Tae-Jun's sword and frees herself by cutting her hair. She tries to assist Hak by pulling him up, but instead falls into the valley below with Hak. Assuming them dead, Tae-Jun reports to Soo-won, giving him Yona's hair. The next day, Soo-Won is crowned king. Yona wakes up to meet Yun, who found and brought them to his hut, and Ik-su, the priest Yona and Hak were looking for. Hak, who protected Yona as they fell, is unconscious and badly injured. Yun, however, is treating him.
