The end of the battle is drawing near and relationships between Masters and Servants are changing. Many players have dropped off the field, and a very special one is next to go.
Weaver arrives at his home to see Glen on the roof, and Glen asks him to chat with him on the roof. Rider tells Weaver to talk with Glen as he keeps an eye out for enemies. Glen tells Weaver that this spot is the best place to see the sunrise as he hands Weaver a beverage. He talks about how they built their house on Miyama Hill due to their dream of stargazing with their grandchildren. Somehow, Glen knows his real grandchildren did not do this with him as Weaver realizes that Glen knows the truth. He and Martha notices how Weaver is too nice, and Glen notes how Martha has been smiling a lot. Glen tells Weaver that the boy has done no harm and how he wish that Weaver can stick around. Waver states that he may not be alive for long, and Glen tells Weaver some of his philosophy. Meanwhile, Kiritisugu goes over the possible locations that Kirei could be at and realizes he is alone again. Though, he still has Saber who reports that she has found nothing.
In Caster's lair, Kirei wakes up Iris and tells her that Kiritsugu will never find them. Iris states that she will never relinquish the Grail to Kirei. Kirei relishes at the opportunity to fight Kiritsugu, and when Iris talks about Kiritsugu and Kirei are different, Kirei begins to strangle Iris and lets go of her. He asks Iris what is Kiritsugu's desires for the Grail, and Iris explains that Kiritsugu wishes for an end to war and bloodshed. Kirei finds that dream hopeless because of human nature while Iris comments that Kiritsugu is too kind for her ideals. Kirei chokes Iris to death after he understands who Kiritsugu is. Also, he knows what his desires are. At Glen's home, Weaver wakes up to see Rider reading books, and Rider tells him that they should prepared for the future. Then, the two notices Mana bursts in the sky, and Weaver deciphers as victory achieved. Rider summons his steed, and Weaver uses all of his Command Seal to make Rider do these three tasks: to be victorious in battle, to obtain the Holy Grail, and to conquer the world. Weaver states that he is no longer Rider's master and that Rider can do what he pleases. Rider picks up Weaver and places him on his steed. He tells Weaver that he is his friend. Weaver begins to cry a bit.
The two have a moment before they take off to the sky. Glen notices them leaving his house, and Saber notices the signals. Kiritsugu knows that Kirei is luring all the masters to a trap. Gilgamesh asks Kirei what he will do. Kirei instructs him to welcome the masters without attacking the ceremony. Gilgamesh notices Kirei has found his reason to fight but not a wish for the Grail. He tells Kirei to use Berserker to stall Saber and he asks Kirei about Iris's status. Kirei informs him that he has killed Iris. In Iris's flashback, she sees a mountain of dead, naked, homunculi that looked like Iris. Her daughter, Illyaviel, tells her about a nightmare she has. Iris comforts her daughter while crying. She tells her daughter that she will be free from the bonds of fate. Suddenly, Iris finds herself inside of the Holy Grail as the black goo with white arms begin pulling her in. She smiles evilly as she knows her answers.
