Tsang Chou jail.
With the approach of the attackers at dusk, in Ch'ung emerges from the farm house with a number of local's standing ready to defend their homestead.
In a bloody fight in which many on both sides are killed, Lin Ch'ung is knocked to the ground by a cunning billman who stuck him in the back while he faced off against the Army Officer.
As it looked like our heroes journey would end the soldiers morale crumbled as the last torch was snuffed out and they fled into the darkness.
The Soldiers flee having seen over half their number fall. Leaving the farm in the hands of the locals and our two bruised heroes.
Had fate intervened for Lin Ch'ung?
