Sensing the events of battle from Earth, Sasami chants a spell which opens up a portal into space. Meanwhile, Ryoko, Ayeka, and Mihoshi break into the Soja. While Kagato is playing his pipe organ, Azaka and Kamidake are preserving Tenchi's crippled body until Tsunami appears and takes the three of them away. Mihoshi accidentally transports herself into the Soja's reverse world and later frees Washu from her prison after using her causality-bending in a panic against two giant stone snakes.
Back on the real world, Ayeka and Ryoko attack Kagato but he knocks out Ayeka and turns Ryoko into stone. However, Washu reverses Kagato's attack giving Ryoko a second chance at crushing Kagato who uses an illusion to try getting information on Tsunami from Ayeka. Meanwhile, Tenchi is fully healed by Tsunami and is told that she couldn't leave her ship. Ryoko is overpowered in her battle with Kagato and Washu transports Ayeka to the reverse world. Furious, Kagato launches an energy attack to destroy Earth, but it's stopped by Tsunami who proceeds to damage the Soja's defense systems. Tenchi then appears to stop Kagato, but he absorbs the energy of Ryoko, Tenchi's sword, and Tsunami. Tenchi thinks he has failed in battle. But a flashback of him from Tsunami gives Tenchi the confidence to continue his battle. Kagato launches an energy blast at Tenchi which is blocked by Tenchi generating 3 Lighthawk Wings which he converts into a sword and kills Kagato with. With Kagato dead, the girls are freed from the reverse world. However, Tenchi's sword attack splits the Soja in half forcing everyone on the ship to flee.
