Insurrection is ongoing against the King Jom Rachan (พระองค์) but this latter eliminates all his opponents (Choomporn Theppitak). On the execution day, Tien is saved at last minute and sent to Ayutthaya. Bad omens are seen by the King. To try to influence the future, he sends some ninjas to kill Tien in Ayutthaya. They fail thanks to some courageous Ayutthaya soldiers. Thanks to Buddhist prayers, offerings, casting of a Buddha statue, dances and Buddhist monk's (Nirut Sirijanya) healing skills, Tien is cured. But full recovery is difficult. He considers suicide as he is almost infirmed. Through inner peace, meditation and efforts (ฝึก), he starts to recover management of his limbs. A new fighter take over the King Jom Rachan looking for power only (อำนาจ). Aware of Tien recovery, the new King sends soldiers to catch him and burns his village.
