The Fairy Tail and Grimoire Heart members continue to battle. Gildartz fights Bluenote while Natsu's gang go back to the camp. Bixlow and Fried Justine jump in and defend the camp from Rustyrose. In Erza's battle, Azuma uses his magic to destroy the Tenrou tree. With the tree fallen, will Erza be able to defeat Azuma with everyone's lives on her shoulders?
Gildartz arrive in the nick of time to protect Cana from Bluenote, and he tells Natsu and the gang to get away from here. Both Gildartz and Bluenote power up their aura, and the two start exchanging blows. The shock wave blows away Natsu and the gang. Wendy, Lucy, and Cana decide to leave, but Natsu refuses as he wants to see the whole fight. Gildartz tells Bluenote that he is ruining the dreams of the young mages in the exam. Meanwhile in the forest, Natsu and the gang continue forward to the camp.
At the camp, Rustyrose tells the Fairy Tail guild that he will devour them; Pantherlily, Levy, and Lisanna get ready to protect the injured. Levy yells at Rustyrose for picking on the weak. With the last statements exchanged, Rustyrose rampages through Pantherlily, Levy, and Lisanna. Then, Rustyrose gets hit, and Bixlow and Freed appear to their guild's side. Bixlow attacks Rustyrose first; Freed shoots at Rustyrose who flies up; Rustyrose counters with his winged beast. However, Bixlow uses his eyes' ability to blow up Rustyrose's beast; then Freed finishes Rustyrose with his Darkness form. Everyone gaze in awe of Freed and Bixlow. Rustyrose starts to feel fear in his heart.
Elsewhere in the forest, Erza tries to figure out if Azuma is lying about defeating Mirajane. By the rocks, Ultear tells Gray that they are almost like brother and sister, but Gray cannot believe she is saying. Ultear's words continue to remind Gray of Ur. As the battles continue, a scene of a boy wearing clothes similar to Natsu's attire is seen. Back to Rustyrose, he gains his composure and uses his fear to create a nightmarish spell that grabs both Freed and Bixlow. He recalls Freed and Bixlow's leader, Laxus, which angers Freed. At the same time, Gildartz and Bluenote butt heads while Erza and Azuma duke it out. Erza quickly changes into her Morning Star armor and blasts Azuma with her magic. Yet, Azuma smiles and tells her that she and him are searching to fight the strong. Erza denies his statement and talks about how she only needs her power to protect her friends. Azuma prepares to take over the island's magic as he goes inside the tree. He tells Erza that he arrive to this island to take over the land's magic. Mest and the other soldiers see the great Tenrou tree beginning to fall over. Back to Natsu's group, Natsu and the others collapse on the ground while others are experiencing great exhaustion and power. At Hades's ship, Hades remark that Gildartz is a fine chess piece and that Fairy Tail has lost their chance at victory.
Azuma explains to Erza that the Tenrou Tree enhances Fairy Tail members' magic and gives them divine protection due to their stamps. The tree has fallen into the ocean; Azuma tells Erza that he has left her with magic power. He wants to test Erza's will to protect her friends.
