On the way,he asks how she?s able to keep her consciousness & she explains it?s coz of the robe made by Wu Han. They enter a room & Sanzo is shocked that Master Wu Han is just a dead body. However,the she-youkai?s robe starts glowing & Wu Han speaks to Sanzo,telling him he has reached his final moments & implores Sanzo to save his people.But Sanzo retorts that that the people have to be saved from Wu Han,who is reigning them even from his grave. The she-youkai falls then & the castle begins to break up with the last of Wu Han?s energy gone.Sanzo says they have to bring everyone out,but she insists on staying to protect Wu Han.Sanzo slaps her,telling her to see he?s just a dead body.As they start running,she says bringing the others out would turn them to stone & he says what they?d be facing is much worse than that.The statues had all changed to youkai & started attacking when they stepped out.The she-youkai is shocked by the chaos & Sanzo tells her this is what was happening all over Togenkyo.Suddenly,she shout that Tofugai?s peace will be kept & tells her people to come to her to be saved.As their life-force flow towards her,her robe glows & she seals Tofugai within a bubble to wait for better times.
