Shana and Yūji begin to fight while Kazumi is watching them. During the fight, Wilhelmina and Shana try to reach the World Egg, but they are blocked by Yūji and Sydonay. Yūji and the Snake of the Festival further explain their motivations for creating Xanadu while fighting Shana. Their fighting ceases for a while when Shana becomes saddened by Yūji's words, saying that he cannot stand by her side as long as she treats the Denizens as things to be exterminated. Thinking back to the Statue of Pride incident, Shana wonders why Yūji cannot believe in the feelings they shared back then. Shana resumes fighting a surprised Yūji, who must be rescued from Shana's flames by Sydonay.
Shana tries to utilize the chance brought by forcing Yūji on the defensive to use Chorde on the World Egg, however the Treasure Tool is successfully intercepted by Yūji, who managed to arrive just in time thanks to Sydonay throwing him. When Shana tries to use Chorde on the World Egg again, Yūji is forced to order Sydonay to attack Shana, however this causes Wilhelmina to act, and she successfully restrains both of them. However, when Chorde is about to hit the World Egg it gains a silver shell, which successfully blocks the Treasure Tool from interacting with it.
Elsewhere, Dantalion unleashes his newest invention on a bewildered Seere. Below in the deepest depths of the Star of Darkness Castle, Margery, and Khamsin have successfully infiltrated the structure. Khamsin begins his work of trying to destabilize the structure. This development forces Sydonay to utilize his Shintetsu Nyoi not as a weapon, but as a tool to keep the Castle upright when it is about to fall over.
After the dust clears, Kazumi recovers after being thrown about by the impact of Shintetsu Nyoi, clearly shocked by her near-death experience. This gives her the determination to act, so she calls Shana to break Bel Peol's Tartaros so she can activate the Giralda. Pheles appears and awakens Johann from inside the Midnight Lost Child.
Johann pulls the Midnight Lost Child from Yūji's body, however Yūji quickly begins pulling back, counteracting Johannn. Yūji, and the Snake of the Festival are shocked at him doing this as he should know the plans of Bal Masqué's due to being within the Midnight Lost Child all this time.

Powers and Abilities UsedEdit
- Kazumi's quote before activating the Giralda regarding her life, "I'm not throwing it away. I'm making use of it." (「捨てるんじゃない。生かすんだ」 Suterunjanai. Ikasunda ), was originally said by Yūji after the fight with Friagne at Misaki Municipal High School, where Shana uses Yūji's existence instead of his friends' to fix the damage. The quote is absent from Shakugan no Shana Episode 03, but is in the first light novel volume, the first manga volume, and in the movie. This is significant as in the movie and manga, Yūji had prevented Shana from using Kazumi's existence. In the light novel and anime, Shana was going to use Hayato Ike.
