Plot Summary

Opening Theme

"Fiesta" by Plus

Wendy tries to defend Jellal by saying that he has no memories of his crimes, but Lahar says that it is an invalid defense. Jellal apologizes to Wendy for not remembering her, and says that he has no intention of resisting arrest. Lahar then says that Jellal will probably be executed or be in prison for life without parole, never seeing another human face again. Erza trembles, and Natsu abruptly attacks them. After Natsu throws the first punch, Gray joins in along with Jura, Ichiya, Happy, and Lucy to stop council from taking Jellal. Since they are exhausted and can't use their magic they resort to using their fists. However, Erza stops her friends' protest and takes full responsibility for disturbing the council. As Jellal walks into the wagon, he remembers something, turns to Erza, smiling, as he says one last thing before farewell.

Erza then remembers a moment in her past when Jellal was first introducing himself in the Tower of Heaven. When asked about her name, Erza replies that she's just "Erza, just plain Erza". Jellal frowns because he thinks it's sad to not have a last name. He touches her hair and comments how beautiful the color is. He then decides to give her the last name, "Scarlet", to match her hair color. Lucy comments on how the red sky matched Erza's hair while Wendy hides behind a rock and watches Erza cry.

After that, everyone goes back to Wendy's guild to celebrate and get a change of Nirvit-style clothes except Gray, who opts to wear his white coat. Ichiya shows off and his fellow guild members, Eve, Hibiki, and Ren, start dancing comically. Natsu, Gray, Lucy, and Happy then join in the dancing. However, Roubaul's frown instantly kills the mood. He reveals that he is only a ghost and then starts to tell the story of the Nirvit. In his story, Roubaul is the only survivor of Nirvit's civil war 400 years ago due to Nirvana becoming consumed in darkness after it was consumed in light. He explains that the people of the guild are only illusions that he made to make Wendy happy when "Jellal" first brought her to the "guild". As the guild members start disappearing, Wendy cries as she realizes that they were only illusions in the first place. Robaul says one last thing as he points to the friends she's made before he disappears, bidding her farewell. Soon enough, Wendy's guild stamp starts to fade away as well. She collapses and cries as the others watch unsure what to do. Erza puts a hand on the sobbing Wendy's shoulder and consoles her. Then, she says that they will go to the Fairy Tail guild.
