Just as the Princess is about to set off, Mei Shouquan’s niece, Jiujin, falls ill, and someone dies at the Wei’s herbal drink shop.   (Source: 8 Days)


擂台主持人宣布了斗智的考题,吴福气径傻看住余双喜,没有任何举动,搞得众人不安,接着吴福气向余双喜耳语一番,余双喜急急跑去,原来吴福气明白了其中的玄机,结果,吴福气终于以萤火虫成功的赢了这场比赛 。吴福气赢了比赛,众人大乐之余,开始担心梅寿全的安危。

姐夫赵财刻薄的要他先写遗嘱,瑞宁公主甚至要梅寿全放弃。梅寿全坚持上场,结果被打得鼻青脸肿,吴福气开始做白旗准备投降,梅寿全却不肯投降,外甥女九斤到来鼓励,提醒了梅寿全,终于悟出了以柔克刚,凭借顽强的意志,竟然把号称铁臂神君的对手击败,大出众人意料之外。

擂台比赛结束,瑞宁公主得意的向欧阳啸天示威,表示不想再谈彼此之间的亲事,并准备动身回返京城。瑞宁公主要走了,由于失去麻如意作为护卫,怕路途有凶险,魏得禄灵机一动,与吴福气商量,找来余双喜假扮金燕子,护送瑞宁公主出城去。

吴福气好不容易才说服余双喜答应,要她假冒麻如意。于是,余双喜果然假扮麻如意披着面纱来到瑞宁公主面前,结果,瑞宁公主喜出望外,以为是麻如意回来了,根本看不出她是余双喜假扮的。吴福气,魏得禄都感到得意,认为此计可通。

瑞宁公主拜别梅家,梅大姐拉着九斤要拜公主为干姐姐,极力巴结,九斤不肯,说已经认了麻如意,搞得场面甚僵。瑞宁公主拜别魏父,魏父提议魏得禄这次护送公主回京,干脆继续在那里考到功名再回来。

瑞宁公主离去时,有人在魏家凉茶铺喝凉茶时,突然暴毙,九斤也在这时突然病倒
