After Legion makes off with Lucy's key, the only thing the members of Fairy Tail can do is search for clues to figure out Legion's objective and the purpose of the memento from Lucy's father. They head to Lucy's old family mansion, but as soon as they discover a hint, two more Legionnaires crash the party... and one of them is an Exceed.
His name is Jackpot
Gildartz explains that Legion from Zentopia attacked the guild. Natsu swears that he will get back Lucy's memento. Lucy tells Michelle that it is not her fault but hers. Makarov begins piecing information; Erza explains that Warren has lost track of the groups who were tracking down Byro's group. Elsewhere in Fiore, Carla gets a vision about the quote found in Lucy's book and a priest staring at the clock hand. Lucy wonders if the quote has to deal with the crusade. Michelle thinks that they are looking for another clock hand. Cana does a divination to narrow down the places that Lucy's group will investigate. In other parts of Fiore, Lahar and his men do a stake out for a church where a lone priest pray. Suddenly, a strange intruder attacks a priest, and before Lahar's men could attack, the church gets struck by lightning. The intruder's name is Jackpot. His belly has a slot machine, and he plays it. With three washtubs, it drops out of thin air and hit Lahar's men. Jackpot spins the slots again and get a lightning bonus. Yet, he gets shock instead. With three flames, he causes himself to get burn. Jackpot disappears somewhere else. Back at Fairy Tail guild, Gildartz asks his daughter to go with him on a mission, but Cana declines his offer. Gildartz leaves with a sad face. Cana says her father is cool when he is serious. In Zentopia, the same priest from Carla's vision wakes up from his nightmare. His fellow clergymen urge him to sleep, but he tells them to have the Cardinals as replacement for him if something happens to him. It is reveal that the priest is the Archbishop of Zentopia.
Gray and Natsu's wildest imaginations
Over at the Heartfilia mansion, Natsu's group, Wendy, and Carla arrive. They gaze upon the statue, and Michelle thinks about her fond memories with Lucy. When Lucy asks her if she had visited here before, Michelle cries that Lucy had forgotten everything. Michelle explains that Lucy made clothes for her. These clothes are made from construction paper and flowers. While Erza, Wendy, and Carla find it cute, Natsu and Gray picture something a little naughtier. Lucy kicks them for their naughty thoughts. Inside the mansion, Erza tells them to look for anything suspicious. Somewhere inside the mansion, Lucy finds an old and torn portrait of her family. Despite how rough Lucy's life is, she decides to buy this mansion back and restore it someday. When Michelle brings up Lucy's father, Lucy decides to search her father's library.
Another exceed appears; Samuel
Michelle finds a blank book that is titled, To My Daughter. Lucy summons Crux to find out any information on the book. He suggests that the title might be an anagram. Moments later, Natsu stumbles upon the group trying to decipher the anagram. Suddenly, Natsu sneezes, and Erza attacks Natsu. Then, Carla finds the letters made up the word, "Myth." The group piece together a phrase: "Duo Great Myth." Lucy realizes that this points to two books referred as "The Two Great Myths." The first book is Life of the Clockwork while the other is Key of the Starry Heavens. The others think there's a hint in the book, and Carla gets a creepy vision of a girl. Behind Lucy, Happy holds a book about the Tortoise and the Hare. Then, the door breaks, and Samuel the Exceed appears and demands Lucy's group to hand over the book. Samuel state that he knew that Lucy's group will come here and find the clue. Erza, Gray, and Natsu attack Samuel only to get their attacks bounced off Dan's shield. Lucy yells at them to be careful. After Dan explains how his shield works, Natsu attacks with a close range Wing Slash attack only to get reflected back at himself. Lucy runs off when Samuel tells Dan to go after her.
Dan falls in love with Lucy
Suddenly, Dan throws his lance in Lucy's direction and almost hits her. He goes "Throb!" and asks for Lucy's name. Dan goes over how her body is marvelous and spells "LOVE" out with his postures, and makes a heart shape with his hands. Then, Erza attacks him, and she urges Lucy to retreat and asks her teammates to protect Lucy. Gray and Natsu attack Dan, and Happy and Carla carry Happy and Michelle, respectively. During Erza's fight, Dan shrinks her swords with his lance and slams her to the wall with a pillar of earth. He throws at Erza, her sword that is now, enormous. She makes a cute scream which Dan remarks that Erza is cute but not cuter than Lucy. Dan makes a shelf of books fall on top of Erza while making them large. Natsu attacks Samuel only to get stabbed by Dan's Lance.
Happy holds lil Natsu
From above, a rain of huge books fall upon Gray and Wendy with Erza in it. Outside, Happy steps over Natsu who has shrunk. Samuel and Dan catch up with Lucy and Michelle. Lucy throws the book at Happy who flies off with it. Yet, Samuel figures out the real book is in Michelle's skirt after flipping it her skirt. He reads and memorize the book's contents with a special pair of glasses. When Gray, Wendy, and Erza attack Dan, Dan reflects their attacks, and Samuel grabs him and soars into the sky. Natsu demands Dan to turn him back to normal.
