Plot Summary

Nova and Liberta's man to man talk
Nova and Liberta's man to man talk

Dante arrives to see Mondo trying to wake up Felicità. Luca rushes past Nova and Libertà, and the rest of the family appear. Felicità starts to wake up, but when everyone is glad, it seems that Felicità has forgotten who her father is. As Jolly walks by, Mondo shouts in pain due to the burden. Nova asks Sumire what has happened to Felicità, and meanwhile, Elmo goes over to greet Felicità. Sumire tells Nova that they will solve this problem. Later that night, Libertà finds Nova moping in front of the fountain and asks him what has happened to the princess. Nova explains that Felicità has two Tarocco powers and that her Wheel of Fortune caused her loss of memory. When Nova mentions that Felicità had those powers from birth, Libertà states he had powers since birth, too. Nova informs Libertà that his mother made a contract, but Tarocco chose him as the host while he was inside his mother's womb. He believes that people who are related to Mondo could have powers from birth. Libertà tells Nova that they had those powers which allow them become a family. None of that is a coincidence.

Next day, Nova and Libertà take Felicità to her old home to jog her memory. Nova finds his engagement ring with Felicità which shocks Libertà. Nova states that he was supposed to hold on to it due to Mondo's request. He walks over to Felicità and explains that he has no right since he has lost control over his Arcana Powers. In Jolly's study, Elmo's words give Jolly a hint about finding Felicità's memories that is sealed somewhere in her heart. Back at the mansion, Dante yells at Nova and Libertà for not informing them about their location. Jolly comes by and states that he told Felicità to use her Wheel of Fortune without the consequences being told. The rest of the gang learn that Mondo bears a heavy burden in providing energy to the Tarocco. Luca sympathizes with Jolly's concern to help Mondo, but he and Pace are angry that Jolly use Felicità. Debito points his gun at Jolly, and Jolly states that he can save Felicità using his Arcana Powers. Mondo appears and tells them that he cannot forgive Jolly. Libertà begs Mondo to allow Jolly to help Felicità. Nova convinces Mondo that he does not want to lose anyone, and Mondo agrees to let Jolly do as he pleases. Outside, Mondo suffers from his pain while Sumire tries to assist him.

As Dante and the others wait in another room, Jolly prepares to use his Arcana Powers on Felicità. He enters the young girl's memories where he is in a pitch black world. Jolly struggles to find it until Mondo assists Jolly by using his Arcana Powers to make the world bright and visible. They find Felicità located in a tower of thorny vines, and both Mondo and Jolly struggle to free Felicità. With Mondo suffering blood loss due to his pain, Jolly finds out the vines are regenerating. Arriving in the nick of time, Nova and Libertà free Felicità with their swords. Mondo thanks Jolly, but Jolly points out that Nova and Libertà save Felicità due to their strong emotions and feelings for their family member. Sumire apologizes to Nova, and Nova states that they have Arcana Powers to protect those dear to them. Libertà blushes at Felicità, and everyone except Debito are smiling at Jolly. Moments later, Felicità overhears Jolly and Dante's conversation about Mondo, and she wonders why she could not save her father. Her Gli Amanti card explains that she does not have heart, a strong desire, and someone else to complete the love to negate Wheel of Fortune's flaws.
