Having incurred the wrath of Queen Beryl, Jadeite is told to kill the Sailor Senshi or face death, so he challenges them to a final showdown.

Summary[edit]

Jadeite is called before Queen Beryl and given an ultimatum. He must kill the Sailor Senshi or be placed into Eternal Sleep.

Usagi is stargazing, thinking about Motoki and Tuxedo Mask. Suddenly, Jadeite's image appears in the sky. He demads that Sailor Moon, Sailor Mercury, and Sailor Mars come to Haneda Airport the following night, or he will burn Tokyo to the ground. Ami and Rei acknowledge that it is a trap, but see that they have no choice but to comply. Usagi is much less keen.

Jadeite's appearance causes a stir across Tokyo. While it is widely believed to be a prank, the police are alerted just in case. Usagi's classmates are curious, and want to go to the airport to see what happens. Aware of the genuine danger, Usagi warns them not to go, stunning everyone with her uncharacteristically responsible outburst.

Usagi visits the Game Center Crown on the way home, and is ecstatic after Motoki compliments her. Outside, her shoe flies off and hits Mamoru. They get into another argument, and Usagi starts crying, thoroughly embarrassing Mamoru.

The strong police presence at the airport is wasted when Jadeite instantly puts them to sleep. Usagi, Ami, Rei, and Luna arrive at the deserted subway station to find a train waiting to take them to the airport. As they arrive, they are attacked by a swarm of police officers under Jadeite's control.

The Senshi transform, and Mercury discovers that the police are actually fake automatons created by Jadeite. Sailor Mars destroys them, and Jadeite himself appears, claiming he saw the Senshi transforming and thus knows their true identities. He uses his powers to send two airplanes after them, chasing them to the edge of the runway. He is distracted by the timely appearance of Tuxedo Mask. Jadeite tackles Tuxedo Mask and knocks him into the sea, apparently drowning him. As he emerges from the water he mocks the Senshi, saying that they're useless and unable to do anything without a man, and his attitude angers them.

Jadeite continues to send the jets after the Senshi, but Luna advises them to ignore them and concentrate on the real enemy. With Sailor Moon and Sailor Mercury acting as a distraction, Sailor Mars attaches an ofuda to Jadeite's back. The planes change direction and head towards him. Cornered by the Senshi, and with one final distraction from Sailor Moon's tiara, he barely manages to dematerialize before the planes catch him.

Appearing before Beryl, Jadeite pleads for mercy, claiming to know the true identities of the Sailor Senshi. Beryl refuses to listen, however, and seals him into Eternal Sleep. She appoints Nephrite as his replacement.

Meanwhile, the Senshi are relieved to discover that Tuxedo Mask is still alive. He advises the Senshi to treasure their friendship, then leaves.

Episode trivia[edit]

  • This episode marked the first appearance of Nephrite, as well as Jadeite's final appearance.
  • When Sailor Mercury was analyzing the policemen made of clay, the words "DIRECTIVE - HANIWA" appeared on her supercomputer. Haniwa are ancient Japanese burial markers made of clay, used in the style of a tombstone.
