This episode opens with the swordsmith attempting to repair Rin's sword. The scene then cuts to Rin who has been imprisoned inside some kind of crystal. It does not look like he's going to be able to defend himself at his own hearing. Though he's unconscious, he twitches slightly, which causes some alarm from the council members, who demand that Mephisto do something. Mephisto however states that he can't, since he is simply a defendant in this case. His big plan for dealing with this case seems to be centered on the council giving him permission to go ahead with his plans. The council is tempted, but other parties object strongly to the proposal.
Meanwhile, various members of the Order are fighting Amaimon's forces. Shura and Arthur Angel try to hold him off, but he eventually manages to make it to the courtroom where Rin is being tried. Amaimon attacks the barrier, which destroys the crystal holding Rin. Mephisto is of course completely calm and tells the council that the "polls will be closing soon." Angel is not happy about this development and tries to argue against letting Mephisto have his way. A council member however overrules him, telling Mephisto to do whatever it takes to get rid of Amaimon.
Just as Mephisto gets ready to wake Rin up, Ryuji turns up with the sword, and yells at Rin for being asleep at a time like this. Amaimon makes a grab for Ryuji and the sword, but Ryuji is able to toss the sword to Shima who in turn tosses it to Izumo.
She is not happy about having been included in this game of keep-away, but tosses the sword to Yukio who is able to get the sword to Rin, and wake him up.
