its a lovely night with the full moon and stars in the sky. Ryu getting
ready to do some caligraphy. He thinks that the mess in the current

- Drinking the tea she brew was the
thing that calms him down. Its CL! She has finally woken from that
- So Ryu tells her that all this is
fault. And he wonders whether he should uh... you know. And CL being
type of person she is. Supports his decision that he should take back

- Because of that we get a
To the time when Ryu helped Gill to evolve. And Gill kept his word and
handed Ryu a ball of qi that could bring the dead back to life. But

no dealings with Ryu. End flashback
- But to help Shen-Wu evolve is
the balance of destiny and nature. Everything goes haywire. And Ryu

- The permonition that Ryu sees. He
Ken, Gouki and himself. the worst of all is that he sees CL sitting on
top of a huge pile of skeletons. A very bad omen indeed. Shen-Wu then
what is Ryu going to do since he's suppose to be the saviour of this
and that his wife will be the one who ends it (*laughs!!*)!
- And then scene shifts to CL.
Huh?! How the!!? Is that an omen or is that CL worrying too much for

between two powerhouses
- While Ryu is so far away

fights and meeting up with his semi-dead disciple who tells him that
might be another way to save CL and Kairi is the key
- Back to CL, who trying to keep

qi. baffling the two powerhouses and herself. Shen-Wu wants to kill her
before that thing within CL matures when who would have known Gouki
to bail her out as he wants to fight that thing. Ordering CL to go find
Ryu and shoves her off in a headstart while he fends off
- And as fate would have it. CL
Kairi who has Ryu's headband (Ken took it in SF3 big fight). CL tries
be polite but ends up getting into a fight with Kairi over it. And
comes along to break up the fight.
- Making sure that neither killed

CL that she's expecting a boy

luck would have it Kairi shows up and since Kairi is key to saving CL.
Ryu had to fight him and keep him around. Hopefully CL would show up at
- CL is in some little town and had
run-in with a fortune teller (not Rose). Who told her the usual stuff.
That CL is the daughter of a mighty general who rules part of the

he starts a fight with such intense anger. Sat Mo Sai!!!
- Fight, talk, fight, talk, a series
subterfuges, SnH Ryu and SnH Ken working together against Shen-Wu, more
talks and more fights later. That thing within CL was born and Shen-Wu

product). And that earn him a major beating and left him in search of

name of Wu-Tian( aka Vulcana Russo) by Shen-Wu. And the kid grew up
and is quite taken with Shen-Wu
* Hope you
are not confuse. Because Wu Tian / Vulcana Russo (the way the comic
okay) is who the child looks like when he grows up( Him or Dan judging
by the weird fringe). Rapid growth
- As for CL driven by mildly
maternal instincts and disrupted qi, went as far as to steal someone's
kid. Killing people who dares stop her. But the mother's bid to take
her child sparks a moment of sanity but deepens the need to find her

- Back at Ryu. Shen-Wu is more
over the injured Wu-Tian than Ryu (can't blame him) could be. As it
out that Wu-Tian does not recognise Ryu as his father (!!) That sent
temporarily out of action. While everybody else gets into another fight
at which Gouki kills Shen-Wu.
