Pei-Ling is back on The CW kung fu…or is it?

That’s the question on Nicky’s mind after watching footage of her Shifu fight in Wednesday’s Season 3 premiere. Although it saw Like Pei-Ling, Nicky noted that she used some of Shao’s moves, suggesting there is far more to the story.

“The mystery of how much of it is Pei-Ling and how much of it is Shao is the central mystery of the first half of the season,” co-showrunner Robert Berens tells TVLine. “It’s very burdensome for Nikki because all she wants is her Shifu back, but there may be some dark consequences or dark forces behind Pei-Ling’s return.”

According to series creator and co-showrunner Christina M. Kim, Pei-Ling’s return is also throwing Nicky off. “A lot of Nicky’s journey as a person began with her relationship with her shifu in China,” explains Kim. Witnessing Pei-Ling’s assassination at the hands of Zhilan was a huge motivation for the first two seasons, so this unexpected second chance with her shifu “is going to have a really big impact on her character in a good way, but also in a way, that it may not be good and could affect your future judgement. It gets really interesting, very complicated though [also] juicy and curvaceous because it’s such an unusual story.”

The episode also caught us with Henry, who has traveled widely in search of answers about his father’s past. He even gambled away the ring he got for Nicky, but later stole it again. That was a clue to fans that despite his radio silence and his search without Nicky, Henry “still sees.” [her] than those for him,” notes Berens. “He has yet to complete his personal journey and get answers about his past and his father, so we’re going to tell that story in the first few episodes of the season.” But don’t worry, Henry and Nicky “will eventually clash.”

In the meantime, he needs to find out a few things about himself. “Henry has matured and developed as a person,” adds Berens. However, coming back “when everyone else has moved on” will be a challenge. Fans can expect “some very exciting dynamics to play out with Henry and the entire cast when the time comes.”

As for Nicky, with Pei-Ling making a comeback and the arrival of a new guy named Bo (played by legacies“Ben Levin). Season 3 is “everything preoccupied with what she wants — her craving for a second chance with a woman who means so much to her; her own desires for maybe a different kind of relationship now that there’s this new guy,” teases Berens.

“The focus really gets Nicky closer and closer as a character to what she wants under the armor that she has to put on. It’s going to take us to some really dark and complex and juicy and dramatic places with Nicky’s character,” he adds.
