The White Snake and the Green Snake practiced Taoism in the fairy mountains for thousands of years, looking down at the world and moving the hearts of the mortals, so they turned into Bai Suzhen and Qing'er to play in the mortal world. Suzhen meets scholar Xu Xian by chance in West Lake, Hangzhou. During the epidemic season, Suzhen used the law to save all sentient beings, and blocked the incense burning in Jinshan Temple, which made the monk Fahai in the temple feel resentful, so he instigated Xu Xian to use realgar wine to make Bai Suzhen show her original shape, but Xu Xian was frightened to death. Suzhen rescued Xu Xian with the Ganoderma lucidum elixir that she stole desperately. Xu Xian was coaxed by Fa Hai to stay in Jinshan Temple. Suzhen and Qing'er begged Fahai to release Xu Xian, but they were suppressed by the heavenly soldiers and generals. Suzhen stood up and resisted, flooding Jinshan, but failed to win because of her poor pregnancy; Xu Xian escaped from Jinshan Temple taking advantage of the chaos. Suzhen fled to Broken Bridge and met Xu Xian. After several explanations, the two finally settled their suspicions. Suzhen gave birth to a boy, but soon Fahai subdued her with gold and put her under the Leifeng Pagoda. His son Shilin grew up, and when he learned about his mother, he went to Leifeng Pagoda to cry and sacrifice. Suzhen cried to his son about the past.
