** The troper figured that Leo and Mei were both staging a fight so that the Flying Daggers members hidden in the Peony Pavilion as its' implied the showgirls are Flying Daggers members and don't seem to reveal themselves at the beginning to help Mei. If so, it's not explained quite well. The Pavilion lady does commend Mei for setting a trap for the government officials in the end.

** It seemed to be part of the plan as it did not bode well for the Flying Daggers when government officials were swamming the Pavilion. As it appears the showgirls were Flying Daggers Members and Mei's and Leo's swordfight allow them to escape and run to the hidden base in the forest as they were at the end.

* Why does Mei still pretends to be blind while facing some poor mooks which she's going to turn into mincemeat anyway?!
** In case someone shows up who she ''can't'' kill without breaking cover.

* The much bigger question is why Mei tries to kill Leo. Keeping up the charade that he's not with the Flying Daggers? Who would even suspect it? And breaking her own cover? Who gains from that? ''And'' it's not like she doesn't know she's going to lose the moment she grabs his sword. Is it some pathological S&M fetish that overrides both honor and reason? From a trained assassin so committed to her craft and her cause she gives up her personal life to be a blind sex worker?

** It got her into custody, which gave Jin a reason to rescue her. Leo, as far as most know, is a talented guard who helped save the Emperor. Wanting to kill him out of revenge is not out of the question.

** Leo, apparently.

* Said Flyng Daggers (the weapons) apparently can do anything when tossed. Including attempt three times to hit a target, going around a shield while in midair and requires at least four shields to be blocked. So, what keeps their leader from tossing one of said daggers to the Emperor (or whoever they wanted to assassinate) and kill him in one shot!?

** With the insane physics-defying they do, simply dropping one straight down should have done it.
