Satan's Descent is the 45th episode of Fairy Tail anime. It first aired on September 6, 2010.
Lucy, with the help of Loke, defeats Bickslow. Freed, after fighting Cana, fights and tortures Elfman in front of Mirajane's eyes. With her brother facing death, Mirajane unleashes her dormant Magic Power and with it, she fights Freed.
Loke and Lucy are fighting together to defeat Bickslow. Lucy gets close to Bickslow and attacks him with her whip. Seeing this Bickslow uses his Figure Eyes. Happy orders everyone to close their eyes, and explains its effects. Loke and Lucy keep their eyes closed, but by doing so they are unable to dodge Bickslow’s attacks. Loke suggests Lucy to close his gate and take shelter into Horologium, but Lucy,who is unable to do so due to the loss of her keys, trusts Loke and asks him to find a solution. And so he does. He wants Lucy to charge in when he hears his signal. Loke uses Lion Brilliance to illuminate the whole area, forcing Bickslow to close his eyes and Lucy attacks and traps him with her whip. Bickslow states that Lucy shouldn't take order from her spirits and cries that Loke cannot defeat him, but Loke responds that he is not what he used to be. He explains that now that he has Lucy, he has regained all his Magic Power with her as his Master and has even become more powerful. He shouts that Love makes Spirits stronger, unlike his dolls, and attacks him with Regulus Impact, defeating Bickslow. Loke gives Lucy her keys (once more), but not before showing her an “I Love Lucy” sign. Seconds later Happy rolls his tongue to say He liiiiiikes you, much to Lucy's annoyance.
At the guild, Gajeel, Levy and Natsu learn of Lucy’s victory. Gajeel is incredulous of this, but Natsu affirms that Lucy is strong. While they bicker, Levy finally cracks Freed’s code, and is able to release them. Elsewhere, Mirajane finds a wounded Elfman on the ground. She apologizes to him, feeling that during Fairy Tail’s crises she was unable to help, and is reduced to tears. Elfman tries to calm her down by telling her to smile at everyone when the battle is over, but is ineffective and Mirajane sobs, feeling guilt-ridden.
Meanwhile, Cana and Juvia are looking for Laxus, when they encounter Freed. He traps them inside his Jutsu Shiki, and forces them to fight each-other, if they want to leave. Juvia sacrifices herself by attacking one of the Lacrimas in the air, releasing the Jutsu Shiki. In her last conscious words, she expresses that she just wanted people to accept her as a member of Fairy Tail, but Cana says they already have. She cries that she is her friend and an amazing Fairy Tail Mage, which makes Juvia happy, as she faints, and makes Cana furious and attacks Freed.
Meanwhile, Natsu and Gajeel have split up and are looking for Laxus. Gajeel talks through a Shikigami to Master Ivan Dreyar, and he responds that for the time being his mission is to gain the Fairy Tail members' trust, and to not be discovered. He orders him to act as a full fledged Fairy Tail member, and adds that Fairy Tail's punishment will soon come.
Mirajane and Elfman unknowingly enter Cana’s and Freed’s battlefield, and watch as Cana gets defeated. Elfman intervenes, but Freed, deeming him defeated and out of the game, attacks him with Dark Écriture, torturing him . Mirajane watches, feeling useless, and begs Freed to stop. He doesn’t and prepares to use his final spell, Dark Écriture: Death. This sends Mirajane into a state of shock, in which she remembers the final moments of Lisanna's life and the pain she went through, imagining the death of her only living sibling.
Mirajane’s Magic Power awakens in a blast of light and she uses Satan Soul. She jumps at Freed, who is forced to use his Dark Écriture: Wings to try and evade her, but to no end. Mirajane releases her wings too, and follows him, and attacks with many Darkness Magic Spells. Freed, in response, performs a spell he claims to be forbidden: Dark Écriture: Darkness.
This turns Freed into a Demon too, but Mirajane still has the upper hand. While fighting, she uses various Elemental Magics, before finally managing to incapacitate Freed. When she approaches to deliver the final blow, Lisanna’s face and last smile flash through her mind, and Mirajane deactivates Satan Soul. She loses the will to fight, and reminds Freed of their relationship as nakama and that they are from the same Guild, meaning that they are family. Freed, realizing that he dearly treasured the bonds his Guild has given him, begins to cry, admitting that he never wanted to take part in Laxus' plan.

- Master Ivan was shown in the anime, but he remained unseen in the manga.
- Cana was shown attacking Freed with her Magic Card in the anime, but in the manga it only showed Freed defeating her.
- Mirajane's flashback of Lisanna in the anime showed both Lisanna's grave and how she died; but in the manga it only showed Lisanna lying on the ground.
- In the Manga, Freed and Mirajane are fighting with hand-to-hand combat in the air, Freed was able to punch Mirajane, however, this was omitted in the Anime.
- In the Manga, Freed grabbed Mirajane's tail to send her to the water, yet in the Anime, he used Darkness Magic.
