Derek thinks that the only one who can help them is Scully. Scully agrees to help them as well and he found something to break the spell. He needed Blood of a dragon. So Derek tries to use an arrow and some blood left Chen's body. As he drinks his own blood, he's still a dragon.

Alise wanted Li to explain about his father and when he tells her that his father loves him, but he can be very strict and that his twin sister defied his wishes and he broke her heart in return. Alise and Li were wrong about each other and as he is about to leave, he takes Alise's hand and bids her goodnight.

The next day, Prince Li and Alise are horse riding together and Alise is impressed by his riding tricks and when both are stopping near a bridge, they wanted to try the first kiss but Lucas, who is still jealous, he interrupts their romantic moment. Alise found out that Lucas was the one who interrupted them. Alise said that she now liked Prince Li which left Lucas heartbroken because he thought that he and Alise had something more. Back at the castle, Li tells Ru, that he's in love with Alise. He says at first she was insufferable, but Ru uses the correct word to help his master, suffer-able. Ru reminds Li of the promise he had given to his father and Li is certain of it that he will the competition and also the heart of Alise.

Soon the competition is about to start but Chen is still a dragon and Mei Li is unhappy. They tried everything to break the spell. Mei Li screams that she will surrender her love for Chen which saddens him and says that Mei Li must find someone else to love and leaves. Mei Li collapses and Odette and Derek take her to the castle.

Prince Li is very pleased and very happy to fulfill the promise that he made to his father and, Alise runs to him giving him a big hug and tells him she knew he would win. Mei Li is happy but sad at the same time. Prince Li is now the winner and so he will sing at Alise's birthday.

Alise showed Prince Li to Lord Rogers Secret Lair where he took Alise and Lucas there as a spy team and Alise remembers those good old times. Prince Li realizes that while they were in the spy room as Alise kept talking about Lucas.

It was then time for Princess Alise's ball. As the first dance was about to start with Prince Derek and Alise, Li sees Lucas walking away in defeat and decided to make the ultimate sacrifice of losing his love.
