The battle on the eastern front results in the defeat of Fiore's defensive line as well as God Serena's death at Acnologia's hands; however, the remaining Shields of Spriggan and Acnologia do not engage each other in combat and proceed towards their own objectives. Meanwhile, Fairy Tail's forces rest for the night, and arrive at the battlefield the next day, Laxus heading right for Wall to exact vengeance for his friends.
The Mages incapacitated on the eastern front include the strongest four Wizard Saints, defeated by God Serena, and the Shield of Spriggan himself, killed by Acnologia, who seems to be on a mission to wipe out all Dragon Slayers. Acnologia shows no interest in August and Jacob, while they decide to proceed to Fairy Tail in order to get Fairy Heart to Zeref. Meanwhile, in their target's infirmary, an unconscious Natsu is watched over by Happy, Freed and Lucy as the three discuss their comrades' condition as well as the deployment of Fairy Tail's forces.
With the onset of night, Laxus' party pitches camp and rests in order to rejuvenate themselves for the upcoming battle. As they eat, Laxus' absence is noticed and Carla mentions that the man left some time ago. While the others sleep soundly, Gray goes in search of their missing guildmate and soon finds him sitting alone, holding his chest in pain, a result of the Magical Barrier Particles he had consumed in the battle against Tartaros. However, he brushes off Gray's concern and states that he will protect his family, his friend merely smiling in response. Concurrently, Gajeel's party is also resting for the night, although the Dragon Slayer himself is unable to go to bed. He is approached by a nervous Levy, who expresses her anxieties regarding the inevitable battle, but Gajeel reassures her by promising that they will make it back home safe and sound.
The new day dawns with Kagura's forces renewing their attempt to capture Hargeon. Dimaria also joins the fray and soon targets Sherria, deciding to kill the healer as soon as possible, but her plan is foiled due to Wendy's intervention. As Fairy Tail's members reinforce their allies, Gray and Juvia help Lyon while Erza teams up with Kagura. Wall calmly observes the battle from afar; however, Laxus takes the fight to the Machias, swearing to avenge the Thunder God Tribe.
