Chagot (or Shagotte) explains why she sent 100 Exceed eggs and why Charle has that mission to kill Wendy in her mind. As Chagot hugs Charle, the Exceeds search for the children while Gajeel and Pantherlily become partners. Soon after, Natsu and his friends reunite with Lisanna who explains how she got into Edolas. She embraces Mirajane and Elfman as they both cry happily together upon reuniting after two years.
The gang is back!
Everyone crash on top of Natsu as they arrive home. Natsu and his gang stare at Magnolia which looks the same. The Exceeds arrive before Natsu's gang, and they explain that the people did not realize that they have turned into lacrima.
Charle angrily tells the Exceeds to go back to Edolas since they are dangerous, but the Exceeds apologizes to Charle for hurting her. Charle yells at them for ingraining the mission to kill the Dragon Slayers in her mind, and Lucky yells at the Queen for taking his child away from him. However, the elder Exceeds explain their story that goes back six years ago.
Because of Chagot's visions of seeing Extalia falling, the elder Exceeds think the humans are at fault before today's events. As Happy ponders why the Exceeds are telling a different story, the elders explain that the Queen has lied about sending the children to kill the Dragon Slayers in Earthland because they cannot say that Extalia is going to fall. It will cause everyone to panic if they say the truth. Somehow, Charle's powers save the world. According to Chagot, Charle's power to see into the future has made her confuse it with her memory.
As Charle's flashbacks occur (her birth and the map of the underground), Chagot tells Charle that she has place the burden of the mission on herself, and Nichiya and Nady apologize to her for taking advantage of her confusion. Out of the bad things that had occurred, the Exceeds find their new goal is to search the children. Yet, Charle asks Chagot why she has the same power as her. Unfortunately, Chagot and the elders evade her question. Happy tells Lucky that Charle and Chagot look alike and move alike.
Chagot embraces Charle

She hugs Charle who feels warm while Marl tells Happy to visit her and her husband anytime much to Lucky's annoyance. Suddenly, Happy notices that he likes the scent of Lucky and Marl, but Lucky chases Happy for smelling him while Marl cries.
When the Exceeds leave and bid farewell, Lucky asks why Chagot has not tell Charle that she is her mother. Chagot replies that until she finds every child sent from Edolas, she will find out if Charle is truly her daughter. Then Chagot asks Lucky about Happy, but Lucky gets frustrated a bit.
Erza, Natsu, Lucy, and Gray wave their arms as they wonder if they should explain what happened in Edolas to their guild and Erza thinks they should inform the guild about Mystogan's resignation. Gajeel asks where his partner, Pantherlily. is. Somehow, Pantherlily appears as a small Exceed because his constitution did not match Earthland's. Pantherlily tells them that he will join the guild that helps his prince; he asks Gajeel if he going to keep his promise. Gajeel hugs Pantherlily with tears of joy.
Pantherlily has also catch a suspicious person, and after Lisanna lands in a puddle, she justifies that she is a Fairy Tail member. As everyone wonders why Lisanna has come with them, Lisanna tackles Natsu with a loving embrace, and then she hugs Happy. As Lisanna gets happy that she gets talk with Gray and Erza, she glances at the new members of Fairy Tail, Lucy and Wendy. When Gray realizes that she is their Lisanna, Natsu and Happy rejoice that Lisanna has come back from the dead. Erza refuses to believe that.
