Cold open[edit | edit source]

As Priscilla clings to Raki, Isley brings horses. Refugees from Pieta tell Isley and Raki that Claymore warriors are in town, fighting.

Since Raki is also heading to Pieta, Isley invites him to accompany them south.

Camp[edit | edit source]

Raki tells Isley about Clare. After seeing Isley's sword moves, Raki ask Isley to teach him how to sword-fight.

Undine's secret[edit | edit source]

Back in Pieta, Deneve goes to the storeroom. There she discovers Undine's true form—a slender body, opposite of the one everyone thinks is real.

Test match[edit | edit source]

Flora asks Clare to accompany her.

Meanwhile, Deneve guesses the truth of Undine's friend. But Deneve tells Undine about how Deneve's older sister sacrificed her life for Deneve.

When Deneve became a warrior, she fought recklessly, till Helen told her to forget the past and her guilt over her sister's death. Deneve promises to help Undine do whatever she cannot do for herself.

Undine's friend

On the outskirts of the village, Jean interferes with the sword-match between Flora and Clare. Clare then admits to Flora and Jean that the right arm belongs to Ilena. Clare summarizes her story from the death of Teresa to her seeking the head of Priscilla.

Isley[edit | edit source]

At Isley's camp, Raki collapses exhausted from sword practice. As Isley speaks to Priscilla, he detects the presence of a visitor.

Beyond the camp, a man waits for Isley—Rigaldo. He reports the news from Pieta. Isley orders the Northern Army, 27 Awakened Beings, to destroy all life in Pieta.

Later in Pieta, the Claymore warriors sense the Army's approach.

Manga versus anime[edit | edit source]

  • With Isley's party traveling to Pieta, the anime storyline further diverges from the manga
  • In the manga, Isley's party heads south to Mucha after the Battle of the North
  • The sequence where Undine stands over her friend does not appear in the manga
  • In the manga, Clare only reveals the story of her life in Scene 130
