The power of the Holy Grail breaks the Senshi free from Cyprine and Ptilol's spell and they lend their power to Sailor Moon, who transforms into Super Sailor Moon and defeats the witches.
As the Talismans reacted at Sailor Moon's request, the Outer Senshi reveal their fate during the destruction of the Silver Millennium and that they must prevent the awakening of the Guardian of Silence, Sailor Saturn, by killing her reincarnation: Hotaru.
As Usagi and her friends disagree, Chibiusa rushes to Hotaru's house to check on her. But Mistress 9, the Daimon entity within Hotaru emerges, after finally gaining enough strength from being exposed to the Silver Crystal. Mistress 9 takes control of Hotaru's body then steals Chibiusa's Silver Crystal, leaving her unconscious.
