Episode Summary

After the adventure of The Cigars of the Pharaoh, while Tintin spends some time with Maharaja of Gaipajama, a messanger comes from Shanghai, and before he could deliver his message, he gets effected by Rajaijah juice, the poison of madness. Only thing Tintin could get out of him is the name of the person, Mitsuhirato, who sent this messanger. Tintin leaves at once for Shanghai and there he meets Mr. Mitsuhirato. Mitsuhirato tells Tintin to go back to India because the Maharaja is in danger. Meantime someone keeps on saving Tintin from getting killed by some unknown person. Later Tintin finds this friend, who has been trying to save him, has been affected by the poison of madness. With a lot of unanswered questions Tintin leaves Sanghai. But on his way to Bombay he is kidnapped by Wang Chen-yee to explain the incidents. Here Tintin learns, the person who has been trying to save Tintin's life is Mr. Wang's son. Tintin also learns that Mitsuhirato is a Japanese secret agent in China who has joined force with opium smugglers. Because Tintin stayed back in China, Mitsuhirato is the one who has been trying to kill him. Together Tintin and Mr. Wang decrypts a message that Tintin picked up earlier by short-wave radio, it states "Blue Lotus ten tonight" which is a opium den in Shanghai. Tintin dresses up as a Chinese and goes to Blue Lotus that night and finds Mitsuhirato there. He follows them and gets captured. Mitsuhirato gives him the poison of madness and then lets him go. But fortunately the person who injected the poison works with Mr. Wang and replaced the poison with colored water and brings the real poison to Mr. Wang.moreless
