A recap of Lisanna's past and her homecoming from Edolas begins the show. Zancrow shakes and trembles at his disbelief of a dragon slayer beating him. Makarov wonders what kind of man is Natsu; Natsu tells Makarov to fight because of Gildartz' words. He tells them that they must make Grimoire Heart realize that they should underestimate Fairy Tail's fighting soul. Back at the camp, Lisanna and Mirajane get blasted by Azuma. Lisanna urges Mirajane to use her Satan Soul. When Azuma hears this, he figures out that his enemies are the Fairy sister and that Mirajane is Demon Mirajane. Once Lisanna tells Azuma that Mirajane is strong when she is serious, Azuma decides to raise the stakes by trapping Lisanna with roots in a timed bomb. Mirajane cannot free Lisanna, so she uses her Satan Soul and charges at him. Azuma feels great and blasts Mirajane who looks at Lisanna. Azuma takes advantage and blasts Mirajane with his Chain Burst. Mirajane soars back to Azuma and parries him with fists and kicks, yet Azuma blocks and evades her attacks as the time goes down. In an instance that Mirajane looks at Lisanna, Azuma blasts Mirajane with Burst Claw.
On the rebound, Mirajane delivers an Evil Explosion attack at Azuma who emerges unscathes due to his roots protecting him. Azuma asks Mirajane to fight him some more. Yet, Mirajane thinks about her sister and goes to embrace her. Azuma tells Mirajane that the only way to free Lisanna is to defeat him. Mirajane tells Lisanna that she has faith in her guild, so she tells her sister that she is giving up. She tells Lisanna that she refuses to let Lisanna die. When the roots explode, Lisanna wakes up to see her sister on top of her. She desperately tries to wake her big sister, yet she gets no response. She cries out her sister's name while Azuma leaves with an unsatisfied feeling.
Elsewhere on the island, Zeref finds Ultear and tells her that he is enraged. Back to Natsu, Wendy struggles to heal Natsu, but she cannot. Charle talks about how deep the master's wounds are while Happy is worry about the two. Makarov wakes up and tells Wendy to restore Natsu's scarf to normal. He explains that the dark magic is impeding his recovery. Happy informs his fellow Exceeds that the black haired man did it. Near the waterfall, Ultear tells Zeref that they want his existence, but Zeref states that he does not want to cause strife or anyone to die. He wants Ultear and her group to go much to Ultear's shock.
At the ruins on the island, Rustyrose's Thunderclap Belcusas. Elfman tells Rustyrose to fight him like a man, and Evergreen uses her Leprechaun attack on Rustyrose's beast but it has no effect. Elfman tells her to turn Rustyrose to stone, but Evergreen replies that he has glasses on him. While Elfman has the giant occupied, Evergreen charges to attack Rustyrose. However, Rustyrose attacks her with his dark arm. Rustyrose talks about Zeref and how a new age of magic would come true. Their new world will only have mages living in it. Meanwhile, Capricorn states that their world would be governed by chaos and darkness; Meldy tells Erza and Juvia the same thing.
Back at the waterfall, Zeref tosses an dense, dark ball at Ultear. Ultear dodges it, and the energy ball eats through the rock. Zeref launches another ball at Ultear who defends herself by using Time Ark to shoot rocks at it. Ultear uses her magic to cause the roots to grow rapidly and encase Zeref. Inside, Zeref's predator of death magic wakes up and destroys every thing in its path. Ultear uses her glass orb to absorb the magic. Her glass orb breaks and she uses her Time Ark ability to restore her glas orb. She throws her orb at Zeref and uses Luminous Nimitz to knock out Zeref.
