Cold open[edit | edit source]

Flashback to Rigaldo fighting Clare in Pieta. In the distance, Isley and Priscilla sense the death of Rigardo.

But Priscilla detects Teresa's presence to the point where she envisions Teresa killing Rigaldo. She gallops off to Pieta.

Clare awakened[edit | edit source]

No turning back[edit | edit source]

Unable to revert back to human form, Clare asks Helen to use her extensible arm to kill her. This request angers Helen so much she tells Clare that she will never forgive Clare for making her do this.

Remembrance[edit | edit source]

Elsewhere in town, Priscilla makes her way though the wreckage. She finds bodies and a sword. She flashbacks to her childhood, when she used a ax to kill a Yoma disguised as her father. Also flashback to Priscilla sword-fighting Teresa. And her awakening as winged, one-horned being.

Awakening[edit | edit source]

In a violent discharge of Yoma energy, Priscilla returns to her awakened form. The discharge interrupts Helen's execution of Clare. But Clare detects Priscilla and fly skyward to fight her.

Observer[edit | edit source]

In a Sutare desert, Rubel orders Galatea to Alfons as an observer of the fighting. She grudgingly complies.

Pursuit[edit | edit source]

Paburo Hunt redux[edit | edit source]

Meanwhile, back at the Pieta inn, Cynthia and Tabitha are healing the wounded strewn about the lobby. Miria, Helen and Deneve all decide to find Clare. But before leaving, Deneve takes up Undine's sword in her memory.

On their journey north they come across Galatea atop a snowy hill. They instinctively position themselves to fight their way past Galatea. In a surprise move, Galatea directs them to the volcano, where Clare and Priscilla are engaged in combat.

Challenging Galatea

Miria thanks Galatea and the three warriors head for the volcano.

Pieta[edit | edit source]

Jean finds Raki crying in an alley. After speaking with Jean, Raki decides to accompany her as she sets out to find Clare.

Volcano[edit | edit source]
