Bai Qian, the Qingqiu empress, has an engagement with Heavenly Clan's crown prince, Ye Hua, but they have never met.
It is not until the banquet at the East Sea that Ye Hua discovers that Bai Qian looks just like his late wife Su Su, and he decides to live in Bai Qian's Qingqiu, in order to solve the mystery of Bai Qian and Su Su.
However, his concubine Su Jin becomes jealous and secretly helps the Queen of the Ghost Tribe, Xuan Nu steal Mo Yuan's immortal body.
Bai Qian gets angry and fights in a bloody battle against the Ghost Clan in Daziming Palace, and is seriously injured. She is finally saved by Ye Hua.
