Plot Summary

As the clock key glows with Natsu's group and all of Fairy Tail groups, the Archbishop of Zentopia starts going insane as he notices the eternal midnight is coming. Inside of Fairy Tail guild, Kinana hears Cobra's voice. In the underground desert ruins, Byro cheers up Kanaloa for a job well done, and Michelle disgusts him by commenting how Kanaloa is bite sized. Natsu uses his flame dragon slayer attacks, yet it gets nullified; as he gets close, Byro kicks him in his stomach. Lucy tries using her Gate Keys only to have the magic nullified. After Natsu gets several beatings, Dan wakes up and talks about how Titania confessed to him a dream. Calling Happy, Natsu attempts to a do an aerial attack, but the results are the same with Happy's Aera nullified. Despite how the situation is grim, Natsu declares he will beat Byro which is the same as beating Gildarts. Meanwhile, Jackpot observes the battle between Natsu and Byro.

Over at the Fairy Tail guild, Macao tries to comfort Kinana who is wondering what would happen to her if she does remember the times that she was Cuberos. Macao remembers when Kinana was first brought to the guild, and Kinana explains that her friend would come to her. Makarov tells Macao and Wakaba that the snake is under a curse, and he explains that they have to watch her in case her memories come back. Macao reassures her that he will protect her. Back in Natsu's fight, he tells Byro that friends are not tools or to be tossed like garbage. Even though Natsu stumbles, he manages to land a hit, but it is a weak attack. Byro stomps on Natsu's head, and despite what Fairy Tail says their purpose is bad, he states that guild members do it for money, rent, and food. On the rebound, Natsu replenishes his magic with the flames of candles, and he eggs on Byro much to Lucy's disappointment. In Zentopia, the Archbishop starts laughing maniacally. The bishops are all worried, and Cardinal Rapowant announces that they have a traitor within Zentopia who is attacking their churches and spreading rumors.

Back to Natsu's location, Dan tells Coco that Byro is one of five strongest in Fiore. As Byro beats Natsu to the ground, he explains that people have to rely on Zentopia for survival. Lucy and Happy yell at Byro about sacrificing people for their mission. To counter that, Byro states that the world is full of contradiction and that they have to make sacrifices. Michelle remarks that anyone can easily make choices if they just following their missions. Byro throws Natsu to Dan, and Happy explains what he saw in Edolas and how a path that makes sacrifices can create strife and sorrow. He states that Fairy Tail will not beat by fake righteous causes. Lucy and Romeo adds that their guild is build on honor. Byro prepares to use Divine Arrow against the guild members, but Coco pushes the staff, so the arrow misses. Coco pleads with Byro and that she cannot accept that contradiction. Byro tells her that their righteousness is like an arrow, and when Coco states that their doctrine is not everything, Byro deems Coco as a traitor and prepares to pass judgement on Coco.

In the nick of time, Erza uses her Adamantine shield to protect Coco, and every Fairy Tail group arrive with their clock pieces. When Byro states that he cannot let anyone leave here alive, Erza and the rest of the Fairy Tail attack Byro simultaneously, but Byro nullifies all their attacks. Byro tells them that he can handle 50 people in a physical match. Then, all the clock pieces start to glow, and Lucy sees her father and a mysterious girl. Meanwhile, Kinana starts laughing hysterically, and Makarov feels a disturbance in the force. The clock pieces assemble to create the Infinity Clock. At Zentopia, the bishops are in confusion, and the Archbishop notices the omnimous feeling. Back to Natsu's location, the Oracion Seis makes their appearance under the Infinity Clock.
