Phra Lam not only lifts the magical bow, but strings it and releases a powerful arrow, endangering everbody. The frustrated Hapkanasouane, unawares that Sita was his own daughter, came also from the Demon Island Lanka —of which he was now Demon King— to seek her hand. Having himself failed the bow ordeal, but still in love with Sida, witnesses the success of Phra Lam with a mixture of awe and rage.
