Sailor Moon refuses to accept that Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune have joined Sailor Galaxia, and says that she still believes in them. Sailor Galaxia laughs at her and orders her new minions to show Sailor Moon reality, then leaves. Sailor Uranus attacks with World Shaking and Sailor Star Fighter attempts to block it with Star Serious Laser, causing a large explosion.

Usagi opens her eyes to find herself in a grassy meadow with all her friends. They tell her that everything was just an act to defeat Sailor Galaxia, and apologize for deceiving her. Usagi laughs at herself for being so gullible, then turns to see Mamoru and Chibiusa, who also reassure her. Usagi wipes tears from her eyes, and when she looks up again, finds herself alone.

Sailor Moon opens her eyes and finds herself alone with Sailor Chibi Chibi Moon. Sailor Uranus appears and Sailor Moon rushes to her, asking about their plan, but Sailor Uranus only slaps her and says this is reality. The Sailor Starlights appear and protect Sailor Moon, and Sailor Neptune joins Sailor Uranus. The Outer Senshi mock the Sailor Starlights for not being able to protect their Princess, which enrages Sailor Star Fighter and causes her to attack Sailor Uranus. Sailor Uranus just knocks her back, and then the two Senshi use Deep Submerge and World Shaking, which throws their targets through the building and outside. As Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune stand nearby and laugh mockingly, Sailor Galaxia rejoins them and asks if Sailor Moon has given up hope yet. Sailor Moon declares that she will not give up, but then notices the extreme destruction around her.

Sailor Galaxia gloats over her power, but the Sailor Starlights still defy her. Sailor Galaxia orders Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune to take their Star Seeds, but instead, they abruptly turn and use the bolts from their bracelets to attack Sailor Galaxia. When she is struck, however, no Star Seed appears, and the two Senshi are stunned. Sailor Galaxia observes that she has never seen Senshi able to resist her control, and congratulates them on their plan, but then takes their bracelets away. Sailor Uranus glances toward the sobbing Sailor Moon and tells Sailor Star Fighter to protect her, then she and Sailor Neptune slowly fade away, reaching for each others' hands as they die.

Sailor Galaxia then turns her attention to the remaining Senshi, and the Sailor Starlights protect Sailor Moon. As they hide, Sailor Moon considers giving up, but Sailor Star Fighter encourages her, telling her that her friends all believed in her, and she does as well; they are not truly gone until Sailor Moon gives up. Sailor Moon's spirit is renewed, and she rises to continue the fight.

Sailor Galaxia begins blasting at the rooftop, searching for them, and mocking them for hiding. The Senshi emerge from their hiding place and confront her, declaring that they will never give up. The Sailor Starlights wonder if Sailor Moon is the Light of Hope left by the legendary strongest Sailor Senshi. Sailor Galaxia hears this and, recalling the story of the Sailor Wars and the legendary Senshi, declares that Senshi to be her. She begins to laugh mockingly, as the Sailor Starlights stare at her in shock.
