"Carry Tiger to Mountain" is the fifth episode of the third season of Into the Badlands. It aired on May 20, 2018.


Sunny and Bajie seek help from a reclusive former Master; The Widow must confront a spectre from her past as Chau’s slave.[1]


As Nathaniel Moon returns to The Widow, MK wakes up and finds Nix next to him. MK feels himself drained when Pilgrim takes away his dark powers. Knowing he needs his wound to heal first, MK tells Pilgrim he has to move on and kill the man who murdered his mother.

Locked in a cage, Gaius reminds the Widow they knew each other when they were kids. They share a special bond with each other. He helped her escape the pig pen and left his father’s dagger for her to find. Lydia advises the Widow to use Gaius in the war against his sister.

Out in the snowy fields, Bajie and Sunny have finally arrived to find the Mad Witch. Sunny and Bajie watch as she drowns his son deep into the hot bath, releasing the hot energy. The Mad Witch was only able to find a temporary solution for Sunny’s baby.

The Mad Witch reveals the only person who can save Sunny’s child is Pilgrim. She also mentions Bajie had sent out a message to Pilgrim. Bajie’s message will bring about chaos and disorder for years to come.

Feeling unwanted by Pilgrim, Castor almost starts a fight with MK. To prove himself, Castor takes up the cause to round up 1,0000 workers at the refugee camp. Leading the raid, Castor and Otto are just miles away when the Widow gets word about the upcoming attack.

When Tilda and Odessa kiss, that’s when the raid starts at the refugee camp. Tilda suddenly finds herself outmatched by Castor. Luckily, Odessa teams up with Nathaniel and Gaius as the Widow takes up the battle with Castor.

In an unexpected turn of events, Otto makes a run for it. After being captured, Castor warns everyone that Pilgrim will come for him. The Widow then knocks him out unconscious with her boot.

Bajie feels responsible for sending out the signal. He’s not fond of the whole “bringing disorder and chaos thing.” He will continue to stay with Sunny as they make their way back to the badlands.

Foreseeing a prophecy, Cressida starts marking a wall with blood. Realizing Sunny is on the way, MK is forbidden by Pilgrim to go near him. Pilgrim and Sunny are destined to meet.

The Catalyst is coming.[2]
