A young girl uncovers a statue of the legendary Monkey King, but in order to release this ancient God from his stone prison she must first find his golden crown, a crown that has fallen into the hands of Demons.
Whilst waitressing in a tavern in Palawa, the girl sees the reflection in a man's cup of the very same Font Demon that stole the crown. Then she notices the crown in his bag.
It is the Font Demon in disguise. She waits until the main starts dozing, then she chooses her moment and swipes the crown. The man realizes the crown is missing and transforms into the Font Demon, pursuing the girl. She heads into the forest towards the Monkey King's statue. Just as she reaches the statue, grappling to put the golden crown on its head, she is yanked back by the demonic power of the Font Demon. But it's too late. The Monkey King has been released. He appears, and parries with the Font Demon, eventually overpowering him.
Having released the Monkey King, Tripitaka is shocked to find him indifferent to the Scholar's mission. Struggling to keep him on side, and still being pursued by Demons, she finds help in the unlikeliest of places.
