Her one-night visit turned into three years of martial arts practice, and Nicky finally felt right at home.
While admiring the stunning scenery, Pei-Ling encouraged Nicky to try to make peace with her family, which she hadn̵7;t seen in three years. Nicky, however, was determined to stay at the monastery. That night, their monastery was attacked by a group of assassins searching for the mystical sword, which is said to give its owners tremendous power. During the fight, Bei Lei was seriously injured by an assassin named Zhilan (Yvonne Chapman), who stole the sword and acted.
Following Bei Ling’s last suggestion, Nickki chases after Zi Lan in an attempt to retrieve the sword and get rid of her adviser killer. During the fight, Nicky picked up a sword that glows and scorched her hand, leaving a mysterious mark on her palm.Still, Zhilan fled, and Nicky returned home to San Francisco.
She received mixed reactions from her family: her father Jin (Tzi Ma) and her sister Althea (Shannon Dang) were glad to have her back as her brother Ryan (Jon Prasida) and mother Mei. -Li (Kheng Hua Tan) is not enthusiastic, Mei-Li is especially disappointed, stating that her daughter “died three years ago” There was a lot of tensions on the mother-child – Nicky was not happy with her mother trying to control it. She and Mei Li were upset that she had disappeared, and they seemed unable to get past their grievances with each other. Jin encourages Nicky not to run away, and later meets at the family restaurant.
In the meantime, Nicky visits her ex-boyfriend Ivan. (Gavin Stenhouse), now an assistant district attorney, to examine Zhilan’s sword and assassin from the sketch she drew. Later that night, she saw the spirit of her late mentor, Pei-Ling, who demanded that she maintain her relationship with her family again before setting out to find the sword. Nicky heads to her father’s restaurant to discover that her father has been severely beaten. It turns out her parents borrowed $ 50,000 from Tony Khan, a member of the local trio, who now receives twice the interest. If they don’t pay within 72 hours, Khan’s people will kill Jin and take over his restaurant.
Nicky goes to university to visit her brother, who still regrets her not being there for him when he goes out to see her parents. Nicky apologized for leaving him dry and they shared their first heartfelt hug in more than three years. Nicky also meets with Henry.

She and her siblings were soon attacked by members of the local trio, suggesting they were approaching something. Nicky, with astounding help from Henry, can get them down. Her mother, though, was upset that Nicky might have made their family more endangered. But Nicky’s show of strength did well too.
