Erza blocks Kagura's attack when she remembers her resolve. Meanwhile, Natsu and the others try to figure out how to escape and let everyone in their guild that they are safe. Hisui wants to wait and observe the situation before taking anymore actions. Lucy's group progress underground toward the castle above ground. In the Grand Magic Games, Erza quickly requips into her Fight Robes and mentions she is alive because of Rob, Simon, and her comrades. She outmaneuvers Kagura and defeats her. However, Kagura isn't defeated yet. Before a stone slab can fall on Kagura, Erza pushes Kagura out of the way. She remembers Simon's little sister and informs her she is from Rosemary Village.

As she explains her past, young Kagura is looking for her brother. Erza pulls her away during the attack on their home village. After hiding Kagura, Erza runs from the child hunters to allow Kagura to escape. In the present, Kagura finally remembers Erza's valiant efforts. She helps Erza get out from under the rubble. Suddenly, Minerva stabs Kagura in the back and claim points for her victory. Kagura cries and begs Erza to save Millianna. Minerva summons Millianna who is exhausted from being beaten and tortured. Minerva gains more points. Elsewhere in the game, Gajeel manages to counter and knock back Rogue. When Gajeel walks away, Rogue insults Gajeel's pride by mentioning Natsu was stronger.

Meanwhile, Laxus and Orga meet each other. Orga demonstrates his power by destroying some buildings behind Laxus. Laxus returns the favor. The two mages exchange fists of thunder. Then, Jura arrives to the scene. While Chelia and Juvia fight each other, both Gray and Lyon arrive on scene to join tag team battle. Natsu and his group arrive at the castle. Lucy is still worried over Future Lucy. Future Lucy wakes up and starts explaining what happened in her future. At the same time, Hisui explains the same story to Darton. 10,000 dragons destroy and ravage the countryside.
