Su-won tells Yona that he is in Awa to investigate Yan Kumji. Su-won's guards approach, Su-won conceals Yona underneath his cloak and tells them that the matter with Kumji is taken care of. Yona attempts to draw Su-won's sword, but he gently stops her. After his guards leave, he tells her that while he understands that she wants to kill him, he cannot die yet and he leaves to return to Hiryuu-castle. Yona, who hadn't spoken a word, falls to her knees and cries. Hak hears her and runs to her. After the encounter, Yona pretends she is fine although visibly shaken to Hak. Yona and her companions leave Awa, and Jae-ha says that he will join them.
