The five girls gather around the motionless bodies of Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune, whose talismans are still floating in the air above them. Sailor Mars checks Sailor Uranus' pulse and concludes that she is still alive. Suddenly, they get hit by a large wave of flame; as the wave passes them, Eudial runs behind it and grabs the talismans before the Senshi can react. Upon seeing her, Usagi transforms into Sailor Moon.

Eudial uses her new and powered up flamethrower, the Fire Buster II, to knock down Sailor Moon and surround the Senshi with a circle of fire. Sailor Mercury uses Shine Aqua Illusion on the fire wall, but to no effect. Then Sailor Mars uses Burning Mandala, but it only makes the problem worse. Eudial runs away.

The situation seems hopeless, but then Tuxedo Mask breaks through a window from the outside, with Sailor Chibi Moon holding him. She throws Luna P at the fire, it explodes, and the fire disappears.

Leaving Tuxedo Mask behind to watch over Sailor Uranus and Neptune, the girls run after Eudial. They almost catch up with her, but Eudial uses some round-shaped device to spill sticky liquid on the floor, trapping everyone but Sailor Moon (who arrived a bit later). Sailor Moon is thus forced to jump on the others, one by one, to pass the sticky pool. As she runs through a dark hallway, Setsuna observes her from a ledge above.

Sailor Moon eventually catches up with Eudial, but her Moon Spiral Heart Attack is outmatched by the Fire Buster II. Eudial then prepares to fire at Sailor Moon again, but is interrupted by Setsuna, who orders her to give back the talismans. The other Inner Senshi (and Sailor Chibi Moon) run in, having somehow escaped the sticky trap. Setsuna transforms into Sailor Pluto in front of them, and they recognize her from their previous encounter at the Space-Time Door.

Sailor Pluto then reveals, to everyone's shock (including Eudial), that the third and last talisman is at the top of her staff, but she will never let Eudial have it. The talisman then begins to glow, disconnects from the staff and flies into Sailor Pluto's right hand. Eudial then watches in disbelief as the other two talismans leave her and fly towards the third one, forming a triangle.

Sailor Pluto's tiara disappears and becomes the Pluto symbol on her forehead. Back in the room where Sailor Uranus and Neptune were left, Tuxedo Mask watches in astonishment as the Uranus and Neptune symbols appear on their foreheads; after that, they disappear and reappear right in front of their talismans. Their Heart Crystals separate from the talismans and fly back into their bodies, awakening them as their tiaras reappear.

The Outer Senshi then grab the talismans: Sailor Uranus takes the Space Sword and Sailor Neptune takes the Deep Aqua Mirror. With Sailor Pluto still holding the Garnet Orb. As the talismans release energy, Professor Tomoe's lab shakes. The talismans form a triangle of energy beams, and each one shoots an additional beam upwards to form a pyramid of beams; at its fourth vertex, the Holy Grail appears.

Eudial and Sailor Moon then race to the Holy Grail. Despite Eudial's attempts to stop Sailor Moon with the Fire Buster II, she still gets to the Grail first. As Sailor Moon touches it, a lot of purple beams are emitted, stopping the fire caused by Eudial and changing the appearance of Sailor Moon's uniform.

Eudial fires at the changed Sailor Moon, but to the surprise of both of them, the fire is deflected back at Eudial (making Sailor Uranus think for a moment that Sailor Moon is the Messiah) and pushes her outdoors through a window. With burns all over her body, Eudial gets into her car and drives away.

As Eudial is driving, she receives a radio call from Mimete, who informs her that her duty is over. A dangerous road turn appears ahead, but as Eudial tries to brake, she notices that the brake pedal is missing, replaced by several snails and a sarcastic written note from Mimete. The car, with Eudial still inside, breaks the fence surrounding the road and falls into water from a great height.

Back inside the cathedral, Sailor Moon reverts to her usual uniform and falls unconscious, apparently worn down by the power-up experience. Sailor Uranus then concludes that she cannot be the Messiah, who is supposed to have infinite power, and declares that they have a new mission: to find the real Messiah.

There is a brief glimpse of a black-haired girl in a black dress, struggling to stand on all fours in a dark bedroom...

At Professor Tomoe's lab, Mimete informs him that the Holy Grail is now in the possession of the Sailor Senshi. However, the professor just laughs. He says that, despite having the Holy Grail, they have nobody who can use its power; otherwise, the Death Busters' hideout and all the daimon eggs would have been immediately obliterated. Mimete suggests that there may be someone who could use Holy Grail to aid the Death Busters, and Professor Tomoe enthusiastically agrees.

The episode ends with a close-up on the mysterious girl.
