Usagi runs into school late again, and crashes into Umino just as she is about to enter the classroom. Naru arrives and says that Sakurada-sensei will be there later, which prompts Usagi to complain about how she could've eaten more breakfast. Naru and Umino start talking about something called "promise rings," which puzzles Usagi; they explain these are handmade bracelets that supposedly grant you wishes, and start showing her how to make them.
After school and a brief conversation with Ami and Makoto, Usagi bumps into Mamoru on her way to the store to look at promise rings. Usagi tries calling out to him but he ignores her until she trips and falls to the ground, at which point he stops to help her. Usagi asks why is he mad at her, but Mamoru says it's no one's fault but his own, and leaves her alone and crying.
In the meantime, Esmeraude has found another Negative Point located on the roof of the store above where the promise ring class is being held. She summons a Droid named Udering to keep surveillance and leaves, dreaming about Prince Dimande.
Ami and Makoto decide to cheer her Usagi up by helping her make promise rings. After getting the supplies they need, they go to class and meet up with Naru and Umino. Despite all the help from the young woman teaching the class, Usagi simply doesn't understand the instructions and can't make a promise ring. She leaves with the others once the class is over, and once the room is empty the teacher is revealed to be Udering in disguise. She reports in to Esmeraude on her progress, saying that the promise rings people are making will taint their wearers with Dark Power.
Back at her house, Usagi tries to make a promise ring by herself and falls asleep on her table, while Luna and Chibiusa watch her with concern. While she sleeps she has a dream about her and Mamoru's wedding, but the dream turns into a nightmare in which an explosion separates them, then she hears a voice ordering Mamoru to get away from the Princess. Usagi wakes with a start and picks up a framed photo of Mamoru and herself, but to her horror the glass cracks.
Usagi goes to Mamoru's apartment while Chibiusa and Luna wait for her outside. She pounds in vain on Mamoru's door while he tries to get her to leave, but when she finally mentions her nightmare he allows her inside. Downstairs, Chibiusa observes that Usagi has been in there for a while, and although even Chibiusa is wearing one of the promise rings, she notes that Usagi still hasn't finished the one she was making.
Usagi tells Mamoru that now that she knows about the dream, she's sure it doesn't matter as long as he doesn't push her away. However, Mamoru explains that he's had the dream so often that he's sure it is in truth not just a dream, but a premonition of the future. Usagi keeps insisting that as long as they're together, she doesn't care about danger, but Mamoru insists they can't be together and pushes her back out the door. He leans against the door, obviously upset, listening to her sobbing and pounding on the door from outside.
When Usagi finally goes downstairs, she sees that the promise ring Chibiusa is wearing is acting up. Luna quickly tears it off with her teeth and throws it to the ground. Usagi approaches them and Luna explains what happened. Just then Ami calls on the communicator and informs them that the other students in the promise ring class are showing similar symptoms.
When Usagi, Chibiusa, and Luna arrive at the building, they can see the Dark Henge on the roof, which has by now grown considerably. Usagi transforms into Sailor Moon and confronts Udering on the roof. The Droid attacks her with its rings, but Sailor Moon avoids the attack, and Tuxedo Mask arrives to distract it. As the Dark Power amplifies the Droid's power, though, Tuxedo Mask is trapped by one of its energy rings.
Sailor Mercury arrives and freezes the rings, and the other Sailor Senshi deflect the attacks. Sailor Moon then takes the chance to destroy Udering, which in turn destroys the Dark Henge and removes the Dark Power's influence on the other students in the promise ring class. Esmeraude greets them and mentions how all of this doesn't matter, since she will still open the Dark Gate and destroy Crystal Tokyo with the power of the Evil Black Crystal.
Tuxedo Mask tells Sailor Moon that they will protect their city and Crystal Tokyo, and promises to fight alongside them before disappearing. Sailor Moon wants to follow him, but she doesn't until the other Senshi, especially Sailor Mars, encourage her to go after him anyway.
Usagi rushes through the streets in search of Mamoru, and finds him waiting for her, apparently having come to terms with the situation. They embrace and Usagi thinks that, even if they can't get married, she doesn't care as long as they can be together right now. Mamoru nods, and they kiss.
