Added DiffLines:

* TheOner: After the escape from the Demon-Locking Pagoda, Drunken Sword Immortal wakes Xiao Yiao to tell him [[spoiler: of Yue'Ru's death]]. The scene begins by cutting back and forth between their faces as they talk, but then after the truth sinks in, the camera follows the two of them around the room in a ''five-minute-fourteen-second'' tracking shot as they begin to process the consequences of everything that's happened to far. Coincides with Xiao Yiao's second MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment (the first was when [[spoiler: his amnesia]] abruptly ended).
