Knights of the Ashen Flame, Yana and Haumea, met up and watched the confrontation between Sho and Shinra. Shinra found himself in a colorless land with black flames rising from the ground and Sho explained that it is the Adolla Burst, a place formerly called "Hell". Shinra then saw the Evangelist appear behind his brother. Sho and Shinra returned to the real world and Licht explained that Sho can effect the thermal expansion of the universe, appearing to alter the passage of time. Sho mounted a number of lightening fast attacks against Shinra who appeared helpless against them, but Shinra nevertheless kept trying to reach Sho. Eventually, Shinra moved fast enough by utilizing the Adolla Burst to break into Sho's "motionless world" and strike him. However, it took a heavy physical toll and Shinra began to dangerously overheat. Licht warned Shinra that at the speed of light, Shinra's body breaks apart and reassembles itself risking atomizing himself and dying, but Shira insisted that he will reconnect with his little brother and ignored the warning.
Shinra revisits his childhood to share his memories with Sho, to try to forge a deeper connection. Meanwhile, the members of the 8th rally to rescue one of their own who is critically injured and turn to Captain Huang of the 6th for assistance.
