The inner and outers senshi finally ally– kind of. When Pluto’s Dead Scream stops the enemy attack, Neptune and Uranus show up. Sailor Moon transforms into Princess Serenity before their eyes, and the three outer senshi bow down before her. It’s not that they’re ready to join the inners, but at least we know they’re all on the same team.
Side note: I was totally wrong about Pluto. She still remembers her Small Lady, reborn and everything.
Speaking of Chibiusa, she goes to hang out with her friend Hotaru only to discover the secret of Hotaru’s science-ified body. She runs away in fear, but immediately regrets it, knowing she’s hurt her friend. Hotaru’s father is revealed to be the bad guy, if you couldn’t tell already.
Kaorinite calls on Cyprine to do what the other Witches 5 could not. When hit by a Moon Spiral Heat Attack, she splits into herself and Ptiol. Prepare for trouble; make it double.
We know that the outer senshi have greater power than the inner, and it’s definitely time for some upgrades. While all the senshi are brainwashed, Sailor Moon, Chibi Moon, and Tuxedo Mask remain. Sailor Moon asks them to lend her their power, and the holy grail appears. It’s time for something major!
