Shao Jun informed Wang Yangming, the Jiangxi governor and leader the Neo-Confucian school of mind, that she had discovered his secret identity as leader of the Assassins. Alas, she was not the only one who had unraveled his secret identity. The Tigers had acquired the certainty that Wang Yangming was their mortal enemy.
They had started to spy on him and identified many of his allies. They were ready to strike, to purge the Assassins from Beijing and the confusion that reigned in court, due to the absence of a declared Emperor, was perfect for the Tigers to eliminate the opponents. They planned a massive operation to get rid of the Assassins, but this time, they were the ones making mistakes. Word of the plot leaked to the Concubines, and Shao Jun could warn Yangming in time.
