Kyouka appears in front of Mard Geer, asking him to awaken Master E.N.D., but it can't be done because of insufficient amount of Curse Power. Meanwhile, Warren uses his Telepathy to communicate with all of Fairy Tail and everyone finds the current status of the situation. However, Mard Geer interrupts and proceeds to using Alegria, which transforms Cube into Plutogrim while absorbing all Fairy Tail members into the land—all except Lucy Heartfilia.Mard promises the extinction of Magic
Appearing before Demon King Mard Geer, Kyoukatells him of Face's destruction, as well as of the demises of Ezel andFranmalth; Mard tells Kyouka that Sayla andHell's Core have suffered the same fate as them, which leaves her stunned. After hearing this, Kyouka begins to ask Mard to revive E.N.D., but the man refuses, citing that they don't have enough Curse Power due to the ever-present Magic Power interfering. When Kyouka says that Face's destruction has felled their attempt at destroying Magic Power, Mard merely laughs and tells Kyouka to look at the bigger picture: Face's destruction was a mere snag in their plan and that one day soon, Magic Power will be eradicated.

Upon hearing Kyouka say that she doesn't understand what he means, Mard asks her what they are, and she states that they are the Etherious: Zeref's Demons, and that their goal is revive E.N.D. and return to Zeref, as well as that humans are lower than insects. At that moment, however, Mard creates a number of rose vines that ensnare Kyouka, cutting deep into her flesh; not understanding what is happening, Mard tells Kyouka that she's grown too fond of humans, as she merely tortured one that was in her grasp instead of killing it, though she states that it was to gather information on Face. After saying that Kyouka has grown too fond of humans (which she rebuts), Mard tells her that her punishment is not for toying with lesser creatures, it is for inconveniencing him; she humbly accepts the punishment. As he continues torturing Kyouka, Mard states that the humans have irked him, and wonders aloud if he should use Alegria to pay them back for mucking up his "garden".Mard uses Alegria
Concurrently, as Natsu and Lucy wonder where Gray and Mirajane are, Warrenreaches out to all of Fairy Tail with his Telepathy and tells them all that Mirajane is safe, and that so are Elfman and Lisanna; using Warren's Telepathy, Lucy goes on to tell everyone that Wendy and Carla destroyed Face; Happy does the same thing, but directs Hades' words of "releasing the light" at Makarov, which prompts the man to think about Lumen Histoire and question the reason as to why he would say something like that. However, at that moment, Mard Geer hi-jacks Warren's telepathy and tells Fairy Tail his name and status before saying that they won't live to see another day. With that, Mard makes use of Alegria, which causes the whole of Cube to turn into a gigantic prison monster called Plutogrim. During the process, many of Tartarus' soldiers, as well as nearly all of Fairy Tail, are frozen in a mysterious substance. In his throne room, Mard is questioned by Kyouka in regards to his recklessness, but Mard merely states that humans are foolish and that none can escape Plutogrim.
Meanwhile, in his room, Silver makes note of Mard using Plutogrim and calls his Curse "boring" as well as mentioning that he and a certain somone will most likely never meet again. However, Kyouka, Mard and Silver all sense that Lucy has escaped the clutches of Alegria; Mard makes note of this, calling the odds at one in a billion. He calls Lucy's feat dumb luck, but quickly corrects himself by stating that she is instead rather unfortunate, as she has been left all alone at the gates of Hell.
