After Minerva and Yukino reconvene with their allies after their victory over Larcade, Erza continues to battle Irene, who reveals that she is the girl's mother. Desiring to inform her daughter of her past before she kills her, Irene begins her tale by claiming that she was the Queen of Dragons.
As the battle between Sting and Larcade ends, Minerva and Yukino arrive at the scene. After Rogue and Sting greet them, Frosch and Lector take the opportunity to celebrate with their respective Dragon Slayer partners. Minerva quickly takes notice of Kagura and apologizes for her actions during the Grand Magic Game, but Kagura brushes her apology off, claiming that she has no reason to hold any grudges any longer. The swordswoman does notice Sorano lying on the ground after her proclamation and asks who she is, which flusters Yukino. Now lying down, Sting tells Rogue that he's out of energy, with both Dragon Slayers noting that it's up to Fairy Tail to win the war. Kagura also offers up her own prayers, hoping that Erza stays alive.
Elsewhere, Erza and Wendy continue their fight against Irene, but despite multiple techniques and maneuvers, Irene manages to repeatedly parry and counter her every move. Even Blumenblatt is ineffective, with Irene condescendingly constructing a hanamaru out of the many swords. Irene mocks Erza's inability to do more even with Wendy's enchantments helping her and dispels the swords. Erza asks Irene who she is, and with Wendy taking note of their physical and olfactory similarities, the Spriggan 12 member reveals that she is Erza's mother. This shocks both girls, but Erza vehemently denies that she has a mother, claiming that Makarov was the only one worthy of being called a parent. Hearing this, Irene says that having a daughter means nothing to her, citing that she assumed Erza would be long-since dead. However, Erza mentions that even if the notion is true, anyone who attack the guild is her enemy; Irene says that she feels the same about Alvarez, but says that it would be unfortunate if Erza never learned the secret of her birth before she dies. Despite Erza's strong desire to not listen any further, Irene cuts her advance of, revealing to her daughter her full name, and that once, she was called the Queen of Dragons.
