Before Ying Yong can do anything, Bai intervenes and punches violently Kitty. Kitty becomes half paralyzed due his fall. Ngam Sai as doctor treats him. Ying Yong realises the kindness of Ngam Sai. The grandmother now wants to have Ying Yong to marry Ngam Sai. Urai cannot support this and tells the truth about Ying Yong to her son Kittikorn. She then quits Kitty and goes back to Bangkok. With the help of Kittikorn and Thep, the ruffians wish to storm Thorasok domain and gets the 200 000 baht stored there. Kittikorn wants them to kill Ying Yong also.

As it turns badly, Kittikorn escapes and wishes to flee with Dao. Dao shots Kittikorn and becomes crazy. Peace can finally happens in Srai Sok domain. Some mute sequences lasting 16 minutes haven't been released on the DVD. Maybe because the dubbing was missing for those parts? Maybe the VCD and DVD versions had to last the same time? Those sequences show the baby found by Adinan, Kitty having heated discussion with his mother and Adinan, Yen treated as a domestic helper by Kitty and Urai, Bai carrying big jar, Urai and Kitty showing their son to the mother, Kitty and her mother in front of the father’s corpse, Kittikorn punching Ying Yong.
