Sanzang comes to the same restaurant, this time apparently filled with people but he sees dead bodies instead. Miss Duan appears and destroys them all but the pig demon chases them out. Duan wants Sanzang to kiss her but he flees from her.
Sanzang's teacher asks him to find Monkey King (trapped by Buddha) to subdue the pig demon, but on his way he is ambushed by a gang. However, Sanzang eventually finds out that the ambush was staged by Duan, who admits to Sanzang that she is smitten by him. Sanzang refuses her but she orders her gang members to lock him up. After a series of mishaps, the pig demon catches up on them. Three other demon hunters appear, competing among themselves who is the best, but the pig demon escapes. Sanzang goes his way and so does Duan.
After days of traveling, Sanzang finally discovers the hole where Monkey was trapped in for 500 years. Sanzang asks for a way to defeat the pig demon. Monkey tries to trick him to free himself but also tells him how to subdue the Pig Demon. Duan appears and agrees to dance in moonlight for the Pig Demon to lure him into the hole, where he is transformed into a little pig by Monkey. She proposes to Sanzang but he rejects her again and she leaves.
Monkey tries to trick Sanzang again, and succeeds in escaping. The three demon hunters appear to catch Monkey but he kills them. Monkey mocks buddhism and tortures Sanzang but Duan saves him from death. Monkey kills her too but before she dies, she asks Sanzang if he loves her, and Sanzang finally declares his love. After that he is enlightened and Buddha crushes Monkey.
Instead of dying, Monkey finds out that his evil form has dissolved, and an enlightened Sanzang is there to welcome him. Sanzang's master instructs him to go on his journey to the west for the sutras, accompanied by the three former demons – Sandy (former Water Demon), Pigsy (formerly the Pig Demon) and Sun Wukong, Monkey. As they begin their Journey, Sanzang sees the image of his loved one, Miss Duan, and realises that she will always be there but will never be his.
