This ain’t no parlor trick, jack. Cao Cao’s hubris has come home to roost in the form of a Taoist endowed with the power of black magic. No feat seems beyond this sorcerer, so naturally Cao Cao antagonizes him. Seriously, I get that y’all don’t trust magic, but at least don’t piss mages off! Seems pretty basic to me. Meanwhile, Ling Tong and Gan Ning become friends. Isn’t that nice?
