* Wei Wuxian wanted to meet with Jiang Cheng after the core transfer. He never had a chance do so because he was caught, tortured, then thrown into the Burial Mounds. But once they finally reunite after three months, his face stays empty at Jiang Cheng's hug and tears. He's consumed by his hunger for revenge on the Wen Sect.

** The last we see of the two is when they peacefully walk up the staircase of the Jin sect, with Wen Qing turning to her brother, smiling and gently taking his hand. This was the last moment the two of them shared before Wen Qing was KilledOffscreen and Wen Ning was experimented on for years.

Added DiffLines:

* One day, Jiang Cheng and Jiang Yanli visit Wei Wuxian in Yiling so that they could show Jiang Yanli in her wedding robes as well as give Wei Wuxian the honor of choosing Jin Ling's courtesy name. At first, the reunion is sweet since they act casual with each other and eat soup like they used to in the past. But then the bitter seeps in when it gradually becomes clear to Wei Wuxian that they're not just visiting, but also attempting to convince him to return to Lotus Pier. While Wei Wuxian wants to be with them again, he refuses to leave the Wens alone and defenseless, even if it means he would have to keep his distance for a long time.
** Wei Wuxian even indirectly mentions that while Jiang Cheng and Jiang Yanli are both precious to him, so are the Wen refugees, and he will not abandon them. However, while he trusts that the Jiang siblings are in good hands and capable of looking after themselves, the two are crestfallen with the belief that Wei Wuxian chose to abandon them, even when that's clearly not the case.

Added DiffLines:

* After waking up on the boat and looking around at the lotus pods he hasn't seen in years, Wei Wuxian hallucinates Jiang Yanli smiling and overing him a lotus pod so he could eat the seeds. The scene gets more heart-wrenching as Wei Wuxian continues to stare into open space and Wen Ning gently asks him what he was doing. This was likely the moment Wei Wuxian realized although he may be back at Yunmeng, it's no longer home, and all that's left for him is haunting memories.

Added DiffLines:

* After meeting at the Burial Mounds again, Jiang Cheng asks why Wen Qing didn't take his offer to help if she ever needed it. She solemnly asks him if she had come to him around that time [[ArmorPiercingQuestion would he have immediately helped her without prejudice or question the way Wei Wuxian did]]? Jiang Cheng falls silent to those words. Wen Qing then returns the comb he gave her as a gift, quietly letting him down as she knows he has a crush on her. As Jiang Cheng leaves, he looks like he could've crushed the comb in his hands.

* Jiang Cheng uses Fairy to scare Wei Wuxian, Wei Wuxian covers his arms over his face as he screams "shijie". As children, Jiang Cheng had once promised Wei Wuxian he'd protect him from any dogs that come near, is now exploiting that fear and using it against the man he once saw as a brother.

Added DiffLines:

* As a child, Wei Wuxian roamed the streets begging for food and had to sort through trash or rotted vegetables to find something to eat. This may be the reason he dislikes radishes, since they were likely the more rotten food that was thrown away.

** After Jiang Cheng reflects on the time he drew the Wens' attention to himself so that Wei Wuxian wouldn't get caught, he has a wistful, sorrowful, and resigned expression on his face. He still cares for Wei Wuxian, doesn't hate him anymore, and wishes him well; but he's still left with mixed feelings. After all, he knows that they'll never be like how they were before and their promise of becoming the Twin Heroes of Yunmeng will remain unfulfilled. In the end, he still loses a brother.
