Episode Summary

Jackie, Jade, and an old man are looking in a bamboo forest for the Lotus Temple. Jade wanders off and gets lost. While looking for shelter, she finds the Lotus Temple that only appears at the full moon. Jade enters and is chased by a great beast. When Jade steps out of the temple, the beast stops and cannot leave. The beast then suddenly changes into a little girl who explains that she got lost and spent the night here. In the morning when she woke, the Temple began to disappear and so did she. She was trapped and changed into a beast when there is an intruder. Then, Jeu-Lin invites Jade in so she will not change into the beast. Jeu-Lin explains she read every scroll and was looking for a certain scroll to tell of how a real sorceror escaped long ago. Meanwhile, Jackie and the old man find the Lotus Temple. Shu Len transforms and chases Jackie. The old man goes on ... Jade comes and tells Jeu-Lin to invite Jackie, so she does and they go after the man. The old man was just using Jackie to get the scroll Jeu-Lin was searching for. It granted him great power. He empowered a suit of armour to attack Jackie, while Jackie thought it too could not leave the temple, but it could. While fighting some of the scroll inscriptions rubbed onto Jackies hand, he used this power to defeat the man. Then using the armour, he freed Jeu-Lin from the Temple's curse.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • It appears that if a temple guard wears magic armor, he/she can leave the temple. This is likely how the guard before Xu-Lin escaped.

      • If Xu-Lin was trapped within the Lotus Temple for four years, then she would have aged four years older when she finally got to leave the temple.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Jade: (referring to the temple) Are you saying this place only exists at night?
        Xu-Lin: Yes, and only under a full moon. Anyone trapped within when the sun rises becomes a temple guardian and may never leave again.
        Jade: Pretty good fairy tale, but there's one hole in your story; why weren't you attacked by a temple guardian?
        Xu-Lin: The previous guardian found the means to escape. I've searched five years for that secret and have not found it. I miss my family so much.

      • Jackie: (restricting magic from the monk's hands) No more palm-blasting!

      • Jade: Have you learned nothing from the movies?! Whoever gets the firewood is always the creeping terror's first victim!
        Jackie: So that's what happened to the other little girl I sent out for firewood ...
        Jade: (sarcastic) Very funny.

      • Jade: Jackie! The sun is rising!
        Jackie: Good.
        Jade: You don't understand. The temple vanishes at dawn, and anyone inside goes with it!
        Jackie: How many crazy rules does this temple have!?

    • NOTES (1)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Jade: (to Jeu-Lin) C'mon! Go Hulk already!
        Jade is referring to the Incredible Hulk from Marvel Comics. The term to "go Hulk" comes from when Bruce Banner transforms into the Hulk after being enraged. This applies here since Jeu-Lin also has a muscular alter ego she can't control.
