Lina and Gourry stuff their faces with their three-portioned meal. As they continue to fight over their food, a real fight breaks out, and one man is slammed into Lina's table, breaking it, and thus, spilling all of the food. Angry, Lina casts a Dill Brand, and together Lina and Gourry end up fighting a couple of thugs that didn't like how she handled the situation.
Amelia, traveling to Zoana as well, wonders what Lina is up to before she ends up actually seeing Lina. In the middle of battle, Lina casts a magic spell, which allows her control of a statue nearby. After handling those guys, Lina notices Amelia, and a very dramatic hugging scene between the pair occurs.
Meanwhile Lina figures out that Amelia is up to something and talks it over with Gourry, ending in her blasting him when he doesn't pay attention.
At the castle, Amelia tries unsuccessfully to give the message to Zoana to stop any further military buildup or risk Saillune as an enemy. Martina laughs it off, calling in Zelgadis, who according to Amelia uses psychological warfare when she finds herself tied up. Really though, as she was pondering why Zel was an enemy, she got herself captured without noticing.
Lina blasts the tower where Amelia is being held. After introducing themselves and after King Moros stupidly reminds her of all of her nicknames, Martina calls for Zel. Amelia warns Lina that he is a bad guy, and he reveals he is only helping them so that in return, his reward would be the Zoana book. He thinks the book might be able to cure his curse, and for that cure he says he is willing to kill Lina.
