Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3 Episode 2 Recap
Previously on Mo Dao Zu Shi Season 3, we opened up with Wei Wuxian, Xiao Xingchen, and Jin Ling on the run. Wuxian wants to save Jin Ling, but at the moment, Ling just wants to be away from him. That is until they see Xingchen, who is severely infected. Instead of taking their help, Xingchen ends up warning them about the coming corpses. They should leave even if Wuxian is pretty skilled, and most importantly, he is with a younger one. But Jin Ling decides to go all out on the corpses, which then presents one of the strongest.
The corpse gives Wuxian a hard time until he takes him down at the end. Amidst the fight, Wuxian realized that someone else was controlling the corpse. Upon defeating him, Wuxian notices a skull piercer around the corpse’s neck. Then Jin Ling identifies him as Song Zichen. Furthermore, the frost mark on him sees Wuxian worrying more as Xingchen is the only one who can use the Frost Fall technique.
As Wuxian and Ling get closer to the truth until Xue Yang decides to reveal himself. Yang knows Wuxian’s real identity and has a deal for him. He wants Wuxian to restore a spirit, or else he may continue to use individuals as his test subjects. As Yang makes his move, Lan Zhan makes his presence known. Yang retreats for now, and Wuxian focuses on curing the kids and some glutinous rice.
While the recipe is cooked, Wexian’s group finds it hard living in a scary mansion that was actually built to store the corpses. Jin Ling wakes up, and everything is lovey-dovey until the sound of someone else’s presence calls in. This, in turn, also sees Wuxian and Zhan teaching they’re younger to muster courage and guts. A female ghost shows up uncalled for and asks the group to open a coffin. They see Xiao Xingchen’s corpse as we move 11 years into the past when the female ghost first met him and how the Yi City’s turn into a ghostly town began.
