As Rin coughs more blood, Ernest tells Yukio that Rin will die as a martyr who saves Assiah. Ernest explains that they needed demon blood and that Rin’s blood can increase the purity. After a plane takes off, Ernest states that they are in a point of no return. Yukio decides to become the sacrifice to save Rin’s life. In the air, Mephisto tells Amaimon about how the two brothers are like two mirrors. Once Yukio slits his wrists to let the blood drip on the ritual circle, he starts to have elongated ears and to have his body twist and burn in blue flames. The priests who chant suddenly become inflamed in blue flames due to increased demon blood. Shiemi tries to help Rin, but Yukio sends a wave of fire to keep Shiemi away. Suddenly, the Gehenna gate emerges from the ritual circle with the demons laughing.

While the plane drops the bomb, Messiah, Takara narrates from afar about how Ernest’s Messiah is like the fifth angel. When the demons start sprouting out after the explosion, Takara calls the king, the angel from the bottomless pit. The names for that king are Abaddon (in Hebrew) and Apollyon the Destroyer (in Greek). Yukio wonders why the Messiah fails, and Satan speaks in Shiro’s voice. Yukio shouts that Satan killed his mother and father. Satan replies that Ernest killed Yuri, Yukio’s mother. Satan reveals the truth through Yukio’s eyes.


Long ago, Shiro is smoking while he waits for Yuri who has firewood. Despite Shiro’s urge to have Yuri go to the Vatican, Yuri is cuddling with the demons. Shiro states that everyone is calling Yuri, the witch of the black forest. After remembering what Ernest tells him, Shiro starts killing the demons. Yuri tries to stop him, and her blue flames erupt. Later, Yuri wakes up and tells Shiro about what happened a year ago. In the forest, Yuri walks with some people, and the blue flames hit her and her group, but she survives. Yuri finds a blue flaming wolf who tells her to stay away. Yuri insists which Satan bites her leg. Yuri lets Satan inside her. Throughout Yuri’s life, Yuri tells Satan what life is.

Yuri: They will prove that demons and humans can exist together

After the Yuri tells Shiro about her story, she explains to Shiro that she has Satan’s children. Ernest and the exorcists capture Yuri and try to execute her. Satan attempts to save Yuri by possessing the exorcists one by one, but each one dies. Only Ernest’s body survives long enough to cut Yuri free. In the prison, Mephisto frees Shiro and leads Shiro to a cave where Yuri reveals her twin boys. She explains the names of her twin children and states that they will show that demons and humans can understand each other. Yuri dies afterwards. Before Shiro can carry out his order to kill Satan’s children, he sees Rin fussing. He stops and tells Mephisto that he will raise the children as human children. Mephisto has Shiro accepting his wager. If Shiro raises the children as humans, he wins. Then Mephisto transfers the blue flames from Rin to the the demon slayer, Kurikara. As Shiro takes out a cigarette, he sees one of babies fuss, and he quickly throws his cigarette away.

As the flashback is over, Yukio sees Ernest calling him for help. Yukio grabs Ernest and asks Ernest if he orders Yuri to be burn. Ernest confesses and calls Yuri and her children filth. Yukio loses his cool and the flames burn Ernest’s clothes enough that Yukio lets Ernest drown in the Gehenna gate. Satan takes over Yukio’s body after realizing Yukio is the perfect vessel. As Satan laughs, Rin wakes and asks if the flaming boy with the elongated ears is Yukio.
