Plot Summary Edit
As Jackie falls to the ground, darklings appear and carry him away to safety. Yuen sends his men with Kuo to find and execute Jackie before nightfall.
Meanwhile, darklings carry Jackie to a dark alleyway and put back his dislocated shoulders. Jackie then gets up and sets off to find a gun. He goes to a nearest bar and confronts the mobsters inside, asking for a gun. When they refuse to give what he wants, Jackie turns of the lights and kills the mobsters, taking their guns.
Elsewhere, Yuen men are looking for Jackie in a market. One of them spots him and calls Kuo, but before he can finish his sentence, he's shot by Jackie. A gunfight erupts in the market. Jackie manages to kill few of Yuen men before Kuo appears. Kuo summons his spectral dragons and sets loose them on Jackie. Jackie manages to reach a dark alleyway and escape, but not before darklings capture one of the Yuen for interrogation. To be continued...
