In JTTW, the Demon Revealing Mirror is used to try to determine who the real Monkey King is, but it doesn't work on the Six Eared Macaque, who looks like Monkey King. It is not explicitly said why it doesn't work on him, but, apparently, it is heavily implied in JTTW (though it is not noticeable in the English translations) that Macaque is the evil side of Monkey King and is representative of his evil, dark inner thoughts - it seems this is the mainstream view in China. So, it can be inferred that the reason the Six Eared Macaque had the appearance of Monkey King, even in the Demon Revealing Mirror, was because that was his true form.

MAJOR Monkie Kid season 2 spoilers for episodes YET TO BE AIRED///

These are so pretty! I love your style and how you made each monkey different and unique :)
Always thinking about how there were two other monkey kings in the Seven Sages gang

What is Spider Queen's role in White Bone Spirit's plan? WBS keeps talking about Spider Queen's destiny, but she's merely a pawn of WBS. What if Spider Queen is the final ingredient? The final magical item to be added to the cauldron?

Hmmmm... So, what exactly is White Bone Spirit's plan?
I'm pretty sure the Guide and WBS are connected. Why? There are a lot of parallels between the crypt WBS was kept in and the box the Guide was kept in.
Both the crypt and the box have a navy blue and gold colour scheme:
The explosions they create when unlocked look very similar and have the same gravity-altering effect on the surrounding objects.
Their locks look very similar, and both locks are clearly made for the key (or vice versa). The key may be able to unlock anything, but it's natural shape clearly looks like the shape of the locks.
The symbols of the Guide, the symbols of the key, and the symbols of the crypt are clearly all the same language.
Anyway, WBS has 3/7 items so far. The three being: the Guide, the furnace, and the Demon Revealing Mirror.
She clearly needs the cauldron to forge or make something, and the Demon Revealing Mirror is one of the ingredients (as we saw when she put it in the cauldron).
In Sleep Bug, it seems that the Guide will not be used to find any of the magical items - it's for something else, likely to be used in conjunction with what she make in the cauldron.
The Demon Revealing Mirror is used in JTTW to identify the true Monkey King from the Six Eared Macaque, however, it doesn't work as both monkeys' reflections have the appearance of Monkey King. It's widely accepted (in China) that Macaque is the evil side of Wukong and represents his evil thoughts, which explains this.
The fact that WBS is using the Demon Revealing Mirror, and that her entire plan is to defeat Monkey King, hints that Macaque might be part of her plan. Since, in JTTW at least, he's made from Monkey King, it's likely that he's the key to defeating Monkey King. The Guide could be used to find him, and whatever WBS is making might be used to subdue/use him.
But what of Spider Queen? WBS keeps talking about Spider Queen's destiny, but she's merely a pawn of WBS. What if Spider Queen is the final ingredient? The final magical item to be added to the cauldron?

Monkie Kid Season 2 spoilers///
Some notes on the new episodes:
Pig Pong Panic
Monkey King sends MK a package, with a note telling him not to open it, and Monkey King did cute little drawings on the note!
Just look at the bottom doodle of Monkey King on vacation!!! ^^^
Anyway, the package gets opened, but MK doesn't notice. It's full of little baby plant people??? (who are kind of low-key evil?) Mo spends the rest of the episode putting them back in the box
We see Monkey King's Cop TV Show!
Is Monkey King acting as himself? Is it another actor? Is it an animated series? (in-universe)
But most of the episode is Pigsy getting addicted to Ping Pong (apparently this has happened before) and MK learning how to listen to people
Sweet n' Sour
The owners of Speedy Panda are: Jin and Yin
They challenge Pigsy to a food war, one part which has three judges. The judges were Princess Iron Fan (who was only there because of a blood oath she took which meant she was in debt to Jin and Yin), Tang, and... Monkey King!!! Except it was a cardboard cut out...
Jin and Yin also have an accountant who is pretty cool, although I don't think we get her name
There's this battle scene:
And we see a bunch of pictures with Pigsy's family (and friends)
But what is this????
Anyway, these episodes weren't as plot orientated. We didn't see Spider Queen or any of her hench people. Next week's episodes are probably going to get pretty serious (MK will probably find out at least part of Spider Queen's plan)

I'm loving the purple highlighted features in the Six Eared Macaque - and how he's like a shadow :O
kind of like how your shadow always follows you wherever you go, even if it's not always that noticeable
Thinking about the information that @ar-blackshaw and others have provided on how the Six-Eared Macaque functions in Journey to the West as a manifestation of Sun Wukong’s inner evil (hence why he’s less prone to violence after killing the multi-eared simian), and wondering if he might end up serving a similar purpose in Monkie Kid…

Okay, I have a theory about the Monkie Kid episode Game On.
It's a VR game of Monkey King's life right? But it can't possibly be that accurate unless someone who knew first hand helped make it.
We know Monkey King is very involved in merch of himself (see his collection of limited edition action figures of himself, and his watching of his own TV show), so what if he helped make it?
Or, alternatively, what if Macaque made it. Since in China, it's widely regarded that he's the evil side of Macaque and was literally born of/made from Monkey King (there's lines in the original/Chinese JTTW heavily implying this), it would make sense he would have knowledge of Monkey King's life (up to a certain point, at least). So the game would be accurate, and it would be a trap. Maybe he's trying to convince MK to turn against him by showing him Wukong's past (which is admittedly pretty violent and sometimes horrifying). We might even learn more about Macaque and his past. What if Macaque plays himself in the game?
However, the game could also involve either someone else making it accurate, and/or magic. Either way we might learn more about Macaque (which isn't as likely if Monkey King made the game).
MK finds a VR video game that emulates the Monkey King’s battles. MK jumps in, hoping to “live” Monkey King’s life in order to be a better hero.

The wind wrapped around Alice Quik's locks, cold fingers of frost grasping his ice blond hair. False tears fell from his eyes, which were cesspools of liquid mercury. His clean-cut fingernails glistened in the crisp air. His clear-cut ebony-black jacket a stark contrast to his colourless skin. An air of silence emanated from his presence as he stood over the oakwood coffin.
He was alone at the funeral, yet he was surrounded by people. These people did not know him, but he knew them. Alice Quik knew everyone, and yet, somehow, he knew no one.
Alabaster pillars supported and surrounded the marble courtyard's roof, with intricate designs carefully carved into them – the twists and twirls almost moving in the wind. Alice Quik remained unmoving as one of the pillars came falling down. He did not even flinch when the foundations of the courtyard plummeted onto the guests of the funeral of Dali Jane. The guests were hysterical and in a wild panic, yet their screams and shouts were muffled by the air of silence emanating from Alice Quik. Soon, there were no more sounds to be muffled.
Alice Quik nonchalantly walked past the crushed remains the guests of the funeral of Dali Jane, weighed down by jagged stones and broken roof tiles. The cold evening air seemed to become even colder, and frost composed itself upon the surfaces of the courtyard.
It was a nice day to be Death.
