Summary

Opening Theme- 
"Monochrome no Kiss"  by SID

Ciel appears in a limbo world, surrounded by clips from a cinematic record. Angela's voice is heard and she tells him that it is his past. He reaches out to one and it opens up on the time he found his father, sitting dead in a chair surrounded by fire. Angela appears, and reveals that she adjusted Vincent's head to contain part of Rachel's face as well. Sebastian and Grell appear in the Shinigami's world and proceed to the library. Once inside, they are greeted by William, and he takes note that the angel is not leaving

Ciel wakes up in the library, and comments that the priest's hand that touched him was his father's and asks if she killed him. She was able to create the twisted Rachel/Vincent man who acted as the priest by changing the magic play she stole.William, Grell, and Sebastian burst in, and show Angela holding Ciel while his cinematic record surrounds him. She tells them that she is currently rewriting his past to "purify" him. Sebastian tries to interfere, but William tells him that he cannot, as Ciel's past will not be fixed by doing that.

In his memory Ciel approaches his parents, but when they speak in a similar manner to Angela, he refuses to abandon the hate he feels for his parents' killers. This ruins the mirage Angela created and they disappear. Grell, William, and Sebastian prepare to face her when Undertaker appears pushing a book cart, and William reveals that he is a legendary Shinigami. Angela takes the opportunity to escape back to the convent in her angel form.   

 In the library, a book falls out of the bookcase and turns to a page out of its own accord. William identifies it as the magic play of the humans in the convent and it states that an angel is there to kill them. Ciel asks Undertaker to stop her, and he pulls out a pink bookmark called the Death Bookmark, which can temporarily stop the development of the story. They can also use a pen to rewrite the story, and he sends Sebastian there to stop her. 

Grell and William appear to help, with William giving Grell a loaner death scythe. Angela continues the assault anyway, and Grell and William retreat, but leave their death scythes behind to continue to hold her against the wall. The convent collapses, killing those who did not retreat. Ciel offers his soul up to Sebastian, but he does not take it, as all of those responsible for Rachel and Vincent's death are not dead. Back at Undertaker's shop, Undertaker offers to show Ciel his parents' magic plays, but he turns the offer down.

Ending Theme-  "Lacrimosa" by Kalafina
