Yan Dan is the only descendant of an ancient tribe, the four-leaf scorpion. Since ancient times, her whole body is a treasure of medicine. She and her twin sister Zhi Xi were able to cultivate into human form at the Queen Mother's Feast a hundred years in advance, and encountered the biggest trial in her life - the love trial. She fell in love with Lord Ying Yuan but had to spend the next eight hundred years forgetting him. However at this time, Yu Mo suddenly entered her life, and become her great support. Everyday, Yu Mo takes Yan Dan out to do good deeds. One day while they were punishing evil, they meet Lord Ying Yuan's current reincarnation, Tang Zhou, who is currently a demon hunter. They help Tang Zhou search for the four ancient artifacts, and also discover a mysterious secret.
Bai Ling hurriedly comes forward to report to Yu Mo. The Mountain Realm is in trouble. Zi Lin and Lin Lang have gone missing and their lives are at stake. At the same time, Tang Zhou receives a secret message from a mysterious man through the Invisible Beast. According to his message, Tang Zhou is required to bring the three divine artifacts to Fengquan Valley to give them to him in exchange for the hostage. Otherwise, not long Zi Lin and Lin Lang will be killed, the whole Mountain Realm will be destroyed too.
Yan Dan and the other three leave the capital of Andu. Ying Deng's plot worked. She pretends to be weak and clings to Tang Zhou. She tried to be on good terms with Yan Dan to inquire about Tang Zhou. Yu Mo is suspicious of Ying Deng's identity.
In order to save Zhao Lan, Tang Zhou and his companions sneaked into the East Sea. They find out that the Aqua Clan is being oppressed by the Dragon Clan of the East Sea. Together, all three of them help a lot of the weaker Aqua Clans. While doing that, the elder of the Aqua Clan recognizes his power as the Nine Fins. The Nine Fins Clan used to be the ruler of the Four Seas. So, the other Aqua Clans start to seek refuge with Yu Mo as well.
Yan Dan and the other two reveal their plan to assassinate Ao Xuan during the wedding banquet in front of Ying Deng deliberately. Ying Deng tells Ao Xuan about their plan. He stations his troops in the hall in order to capture Yu Mo and the rest.
After the East Sea is in peace again, the Aqua Clan elects Yu Mo to become the Dragon King of the Four Seas. But they are turned down by Yu Mo. Zhao Lan musters her courage to confess to Yu Mo and is rejected by Yu Mo too.
Yan Dan realizes that Liu Wei Yang is trying to make her talk and starts to get suspicious of him. After Yu Mo's investigation, they realize that the Yang family was non-existant. And, Liu Wei Yang wasn't as frivolous as he seemed. They suspect him of faking his identity for another purpose.
Yan Dan deduces that the Illusion of Demons contains clues regarding the third divine artifact. The trio decides to work together with Liu Wei Yang and assist him in retrieving his memories in the Illusion of Demons. Liu Wei Yang assists them in searching for the divine artifact.
The four of them travel to the Demon King's palace. They found the third divine artifact, which could resurrect the dead. Just when Tang Zhou was about to take it, a mysterious figure suddenly appeared and attacked them.
The three of them, including Yan Dan, reach Bone Mountain in the Life and Death Arena. They find Liu Wei Yang there. He admits that he was once the Demon King, Xuan Xiang. He regains his memories as Xuan Xiang after seeing an exact copy of his face under the veil in the Illusions of Demons.
Yan Dan recovers her memories, remembering that she was a lotus fairy in the Heavenly Court and that her fate was entertwined with Sovereign Lord Ying Yuan. Yan Dan stares at Tang Zhou, who was embracing her tightly. She finally understands that Tang Zhou is Ying Yuan of the Nine Heavens. He's the man who broke her heart before. The pain in her heart is unexpressable.
Yu Mo writes a letter to Yelan Mountain, summoning Yan Dan's friends from the mountain realm to come and help. Zi Lin, Lin Lang, Bai Ling, Dan Shu and Zi Yan arrive in a rush and decide to work together to help Yu Mo keep Yan Dan.
Yan Dan and Yu Mo goes to the temple festival with all the little demons to help match Zi Lin and Lin Lang together. Yan Dan notices the wish on Tang Zhou's flower lantern hoping for "Peace to the world". She remembers Ying Yuan's wish for the peace of six realms and knows that Tang Zhou is actually still Ying Yuan deep inside.
Many little demons of Yelan Mountain are missing and the clues point to Lingxiao Sect. After Yu Mo's investigation, he finds Cang Hong, the Sect Leader to not be as honest as he seems because he makes pills from killing demons. Tang Zhou doesn't believe him and sneaks inside Lingxiao Sect with Yan Dan and Yu Mo to investigate. He gets angry after seeing the Sect Leader making pills and killing demons.
After the sect leader's death, Lingxiao Sect was left without a leader. Each disciple established their own rules, causing the sect to fall into ruins. It was hard for them to make a living. They were teased as they failed to subdue a cat spirit. Tang Zhou felt guilty. He intends to assist them. However, he was seen as a traitor, and was hated by his juniors and seniors. Yan Dan and Yu Mo assist Tang Zhou in his training. They subdued the cat spirit with their wits and saved the reputation of Lingxiao Sect. Tang Zhou reconciled with his fellow disicples, and his trouble was resolved.
Yan Dan finds out that Yu Mo was dead drunk, Yu Mo talked about the tragic fate of his parents when he was drunk. Only then, Yan Dan understands that Yu Mo is from the Nine Fins Clan. However, no matter what Yu Mo had experienced, the current him will always be her follower. Yan Dan's decision to remain quiet about it consoles Yu Mo's grief and insecurity.
Due to the Palm of Withering, Tang Zhou is unable to absorb any spirit power. His wound was unable to heal. They have no choice but to seek out the fourth divine artifact to protect him. Yan Dan feels guilty about it. No matter what she does, it doesn't work. She feels anxious as she cannot find a cure. Tang Zhou feels nonchalant about it. He consoles Yan Dan instead and tells her not to feel guilty. He says that even if he shall die after several decades, he won't have any regrets as long as he spends his time with Yan Dan.
In the Nine Heavens, The Heavenly Emperor receives a report that the lost divine artifact, Dizhi, was in Yelan Mountain. However, its exact location was unknown. The Heavenly Emperor orders Zhi Xi, the handler of divine artifacts, to search for it in the Mortal Realm. Zhi Xi heads to Yelan Mountain and bumps into Tang Zhou, who was lying unconsciously. Zhi Xi stabilizes Tang Zhou's celestial spirit with some celestial medicine. She also discovers that Yan Dan was in Yelan Mountain by accident.
Yan Dan dispels Zhi Xi's magic circle and rushes to find Tang Zhou. Coincidentally, she saw the scene where Tang Zhou saw through Zhi Xi's disguise. She was touched by him. She understood that Tang Zhou was no longer the Ying Yuan who mistook Zhi Xi for her.
The Heavenly Realm finds out that the Sovereign Lord has regained his power. They urge him to return to the Heavenly Realm. Yu Mo also advises Ying Yuan to get on with the investigation at once. Ying Yuan has no choice but to leave the unconscious Yan Dan to Yu Mo and Zhi Xi. Then, he hardens his heart and leaves her.
Ying Yuan finds Yan Dan and wants to crush his own celestial spirit to show his resolve to spend the rest of his life with Yan Dan. Yan Dan stops him and tells him how much she knows about the importance of the responsibility of a Sovereign Lord. Yan Dan says they each have their own responsibilities and urges Ying Yuan to solve the conspiracy and protect the Three Realms. She tells Ying Yuan their fate has ended and won't start all over again before turning around and leaving ruthlessly.
Both of them return to the Heavenly Realm to visit Lu Ming in an attempt to investigate the case. Yan Dan discovers that Lu Ming has left behind many books related to belts. She was confused. When night comes, both of them were planning to leave as they found nothing. Yan Dan realizes that several candles in the pavilion cannot be put out. She realizes that Lu Ming used his blood to create the Eternal Candles and hid them inside the Pavilion of Books as clues. Ying Yuan discovers that the positions of the Eternal Candles had formed the Nine-star Alignment.
Yan Dan finds out that the Heavenly Emperor has gathered the deities and summoned Ying Yuan. She transforms into Zhi Xi and heads to Lingxiao Hall as she's worried about him. The Heavenly Emperor exposes her in front of everyone and points out that Ying Yuan has fallen for Yan Dan, breaking the love abstinence. He tests them with the Severing Cord. The Severing Cord stays intact and forms a know instead. Ying Yuan and Yan Dan look at each other, knowing that it's hard to hide their feelings for each other.
Ying Yuan remembers the moment when he nearly went berserk when he was repairing the Celestial-Demon Barrier. The Heavenly Emperor gave him a sliver of his primordial spirit. Ying Yuan intends to use that to revive the Heavenly Emperor. However, the primordial spirit turns into the Heavenly Emperor's phantom and stops him. The phantom explains the secret of Ying Yuan's background.
Ying Yuan was shocked when he found out about his identity. The Heavenly Emperor points out that Ying Yuan has the blood of Asura, and only his primordial spirit can suppress that power. If Ying Yuan goes berserk, the Three Realms will face a calamity. Therefore, the Heavenly Emperor forbids Ying Yuan from extracting his primordial spirit. He would rather give up on his chance of being revived so that Ying Yuan could investigate the truth and rid the world of a great evil.
Ying Yuan exposes all of Huan Qin's crimes in front of the deities and reveals that he's from the Asura Clan. The deities are furious. They want to seek justice for the Heavenly Emperor and the Sovereign Lords for their unjust death. They want to take back their own celestial power too. Huan Qin fears nothing because he has the power of the Sovereign Lords and the Demon Clan. He discards his facade at the banquet and absorbs all the deities' celestial power.
