Kabwe Carillon's team of Devil Banishers returns to Bow Nocde's house in Tiulyu with an unconscious Secre Swallowtail in tow. They report to the other team about their failure to capture Asta, but that he would not wake up for a long time.
Gordon Agrippa and Noelle Silva take Asta to Owen, who confirms that Asta is still alive just sleeping. Noelle asks why Asta has not woken up yet and worries that the Devil Banishers might have used a spell that makes him sleep forever. Owen confirms that Asta actually is not under a spell. Yami Sukehiro drags Marx Francois into the room. Marx expresses annoyance at Yami's actions, stating that he would have come anyway and did not need to be dragged. Noelle asks Owen about what he meant when he said that Asta was not under a spell. Yami demands that Owen not say some stupid cliché about it being a sleeping potion, but Owen confirms that it is a sleeping potion and a very strong one. Owen states that Asta would wake up soon and Yami deduced that the enemies did not want to kill him, since the just tried to put him to sleep. Marx begins to search through Asta's memory of the attack.
Meanwhile, in Nairn, Gauche Adlai threatens Sister Theresa for allowing Marie Adlai to fall into danger a third time; the time she had been taken by Neige and Baro, the time she had been taken to trial by the Magic Parliament, and now being taken by the Devil Banishers. Finral Roulacase tries to talk Gauche down from hurting the nun, but Gauche just shouts at him to shut up. Theresa apologizes for being away and points out that Gauche could be doing something more productive to find his sister than strangling an old lady. Neige wakes up and Gauche questions him about what happened. Neige tells him about the Devil Banishers and repeats their message about the scales tipping toward darkness.
Back with Owen, Marx, and the other Black Bulls, they are viewing the last of Asta's memory from before he lost consciousness. Noelle noted that the spells the Devil Banishers used did not seem very powerful. She assumed that they were trying to keep a low profile so that the rest of the Black Bull squad did not come help. Yami breaks a hole in the wall and announces that the Devil Banishers have made the biggest mistake of their lives.
In Clover Castle, Gauche and Finral barge into the office of the Magic Parliament chairman Damnatio Kira, blasting a hole in the wall, thinking he was behind the Devil Banishers due to their reference to the scales of justice. When Damnatio shrinks Gauche's mirror, Gauche's Real Double flies in from outside and forces Damnatio's hand off the scale. Damnatio then forces Gauche and Finral to their knees and orders his guards to seize them, but Yami barges into the office, breaking another wall.
Yami scolds Gauche for going rogue and for taking Finral. Gauche accuses Damnatio of being responsible for the Devil Banishers and Damnatio asks Marx to search his memories to prove his innocence. Marx's magic shows that Damnatio had nothing to do with the kidnappings and Damnatio wishes to punish Gauche for accusing him of a serious crime he did not commit. Gauche is fine with being punished but demands that it wait until after he saves his little sister. Yami notes that the guard from Damnatio's memories is absent, believing that all the ruckus should have brought him there. A call comes in from Julius Novachrono on Marx's communication device, saying that he had something important being delivered to them and that it should be arriving at any moment. Nozel Silva enters the office with a magic tool that shows the signal from Asta's monitor bracelet, which had appeared in Tiulyu in the Common Realm. Yami quickly figures out that Secre removed it from Asta so that she could be tracked. Yami and Gauche tell Finral to open a portal, but Finral has never been to Tiulyu and therefore cannot open a portal to that town.
Julius over the communication device states that the Black Bulls are still on a mission to monitor Secre and that they cannot do so until she is rescued, convincing Damnatio that Gauche's punishment should be delayed. Julius reminds them to be careful due to all the unknowns involved in the situation. Nozel agrees to go with the Black Bulls to rescue Secre and Marie. They fly through the sky toward Tiulyu on Nozel's giant mercury eagle. Noelle asks her brother why he came with them when he could be training with the rest of his squad. He states that they need every able body they can get in the upcoming war and that he does not want to lose anyone until then. Yami claims that Nozel was just worried about Noelle and that he should stop trying to act cool. Nozel angrily threatens to let Yami fall to his death.
Once they arrive near Tiulyu, the signal from the bracelet starts to fail, due to the Banishers placing anti-tracking cuffs on Secre's wrists. Finral complains about how far away they landed. Noelle scolds him for not considering that they do not fully know what they are up against. Yami asks Gauche if he has a picture of Marie that they can show to the towns people, of which he has many. They split up into teams of two: Gauche with Gordon, Nozel with Noelle, and Yami with Finral, and they all head into town. They wonder why nobody has come to help the village in its reconstruction efforts.
