When I kept thinking of my dislike of Xuan I asked myself how would he reconcile with his team if he lives after all this. I mean, no matter the reason to trick the enemy Xuan faked his death in front of his entire Team. I feel like no one would be able to trust Xuan in any way again, or they would go along with him but the spirit of the team would be broken. And when I tired to imagine a reason why Xuan would go so far to hide things, an unbelievable idea popped into my head. HaoTian is a spy for Team Celestial sent by Adam.
My reasons for this conclusion.
With the appearance of HaoTian, Adam’s former partner, Xuan immediately realized Adam’s plot. Adam for the sake of killing the original demon Zheng went as far as to send a double agent into Team China to obstruct them from the inside. Clone Xuan escaped with Team Devil from Team Celestial, so Adam sent HaoTian to hinder original Xuan. Perhaps the one who told, no confirmed the death notification was HaoTian, who spoke to Adam mentally. Adam will in the end give HaoTian an item to transfer into Team Celestial, or survive a wipe. In case of a wipe HaoTian who is probably at the first stage (drug), will be tested to become the new leader and advance to the Second Stage, and will then join Team Celestial to reunit with Adam.
Xuan spoke to Zero in a way that can be considered a plan to kill HaoTian as they discussed his abilities.
Xuan knows of this plot and faked his death to allow HaoTian to take his place within the team for the sake of tricking Adam. The way Xuan never speaks of Adam and that he is trusting Adam’s partner to lead such a important mission, is all down right suspicious. Would you normally allow perhaps your mortal enemy’s best friend/partner to hold such power in your own organization? Even if HaoTian isn’t a spy, would Xuan not consider the possibility that he wouldn’t be able to fight Adam’s Team Celestial and betray the team? Xuan is doing his best to make sure Adam believes he can wipe Team China at anytime long as HaoTian is calling the shots.
That’s my theory, but there is something off with this deception as well. Adam must have considered sending HaoTian was like saying he’s in this dimension and that HaoTian is a spy. HaoTian could have also told a better story to trick Xuan like he and Adam heard of God’s Dimension from rumors and tired to enter together, but Adam was invited a bit before him when he was overseas, and HaoTian in China, not knowing they wouldn’t end up in the same place/team. So my belief is that Adam, if he is not stupid or falls for the stupid way Xuan died, is just playing around as he wants to win a battle of wits against Xuan after losing to Clone Xuan. Xuan might also have realized that Adam is just messing around. When the cultivator guy was about to fight Team China, and would have probably won, Adam ever so convincingly called him off. Adam’s name was revealed thanks to this and it was hinted they were all under surveillance.
So this all basically a battle of wits between these two, and for Adam using actual brute force to deal with Team China would be equivalent of his loss in the battle of wits.
