    • Summary version 1.0 by Alan Takahashi, 1993.06.12
      This the third of a 3 episode block which ends the "Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon" series.

    Sailor Moon had reached the entrance to the Dark Kingdom. She was being watched by Queen Beryl who created an energy ball and snatched Sailor Moon from the entrance and brought her to the heart of the Dark Kingdom. The disoriented Sailor Moon watched as a light revealed the presence of Queen Beryl. Beryl welcomed the "Princess" to her kingdom and introduced her to Beryl's loyal servant...Endymion.

    Endymion attacked and Sailor Moon dodged, then she used the "Moon Healing Escalation" to restore Mamoru's memory...except it didn't work. Queen Beryl gloated that Queen Metallia had completely cleansed Mamoru's memory. Endymion tossed Sailor Moon a black rose with a comment: "Sailor Moon...die.". The rose stem expanded and tied up Sailor Moon and tried to fry her. Sailor Moon screamed and called out for Mamoru-san. The rose disintegrated and Endymion picked Sailor Moon up by the neck and proceeded to blast her with energy.

    Queen Beryl finally called a halt to the torture and Endymion tossed Sailor Moon aside. She landed next to the Moon Stick, but didn't have the strength or will to grab it. Queen Beryl ordered Endymion to deliver the final blow, but Sailor Moon had one more weapon...

    The Moon Tiara caught Endymion in his midsection and he collapsed. Queen Metallia's power forced Endymion to his feet, sword upraised. He was presented with the sight of the kneeling Sailor Moon holding the music box out to him. Unwillingly, he touched it and a backlash flooded him with energy. Memories flooded him, including a vision of the young Mamoru-san being conforted by Usagi-chan.

    Mamoru-san said "Usagi...". Sailor Moon realized that he got his memory back and Queen Beryl sent a rock spear to destroy them both. A red rose flashed and the rock spear shattered...the rose hit Queen Beryl and a rock fragment ended up in Mamoru's back. Queen Beryl tried to shrug off the attack, but realized that Mamoru's power was tearing her apart. She retreated.

    Mamoru-san told Sailor Moon to leave before the cavern started falling apart. Then the rose fell apart. Sailor Moon realized that Mamoru-san was dead and she started sobbing over his body...

    [Commercial break]

    Queen Beryl was before Queen Metallia. Queen Metallia was ready to emerge and the cocoon shattered. The essence of Queen Metallia absorbed the body of Queen Beryl and she departed.

    Sailor Moon was going to kiss Mamoru-san, but didn't in the end. She felt that it wasn't right, since the other girls had died without kissing their boyfriends. Sailor Moon left the collapsing cavern...

    Queen Metallia formed a copy of Queen Beryl for her new body, only this body was 10 times larger. As she exulted in her power, she noticed the arrival of the only other living person here. Outside of the entrance to the Dark Kingdom, Queen Metallia and Sailor Moon got ready for their final confrontation...

    Queen Metallia attacked with a wave of dark energy and caught Sailor Moon head on. The attack formed an ice mound like those serving as markers for the other Sailor Senshi. The top of the ice tower burst open and Queen Metallia was confronted with Princess Serenity and the ginzuishou.

    In Japan, the weather became turbulent and power was draining away. Artemis knew that Queen Metallia had awakened. Luna tried to go to where the Sailor Senshi were, but Artemis stopped her. Luna knew that only the Princess could stop Queen Metallia, but only by using the full power of the ginzuishou. If she did, the Princess would die as her mother did, and Luna didn't want Usagi-chan to die. Crying, Luna begged the distant Usagi-chan not to do it... (BTW, Usagi-chan knows this as well...)

    The two combatants faced each other. Then the Princess activated the power of the ginzuishou. Queen Metallia attacked, and the power of the ginzuishou held her off. Queen Metallia intensified her attack and the protective bubble started shrinking. Princess Serenity couldn't hold on by herself, but she got help...

    The spirits of the 4 Sailor Senshi joined Princess Serenity and each invoked their power: "Mercury Power!...Mars Power!...Jupiter Power!...Venus Power!...Moon Prism Power!". The ginzuishou threw an energy ball at Queen Metallia completely consuming her. Serenity faded away and Sailor Moon collapsed. Sailor Moon stared up at the sky and whispered her thanks...then she died...

    [I should leave it at that, shouldn't I? Oh well...I guess I'm not THAT cruel... :-)]

    The energy ball thrown off by the ginzuishou kept expanding. It engulfed Sailor Moon's body and the Moon Stick and kept growing. It absorbed the ice tombs and bodies of the 4 Sailor Senshi and still kept growing. All of the underground Dark Kingdom and Mamoru-san was absorbed...and it STILL grew. It encompassed the entire North Pole region and was easily visible from space and the Moon. Usagi's voice-over says that all she wants is her old life back...free of youma and power-crystals and destinies...

    In Japan, power was back on, and life was rapidly becoming normal...

    Morning. At the Tsukino house, an alarm clock was cheeping. Usagi tried to get back to sleep...then she realized that she was going to be LATE. The family looked up at the mild earthquake and Usagi zoomed out the door.

    As she was running to school, Mako-chan raced past her on her longer legs...she was late too. Rei-chan ignored the crazy schoolgirl racing by the temple and Minako-chan waited for her bus. At school, the scores for the latest test were posted, and Ami Mizuno was #1 (again). Usagi-chan and Naru-chan glared enviously as the quiet girl walked past them. On her way home, a frustrated Usagi threw her test paper over her shoulder, hitting Mamoru-san. Embarrassed (she got 30/100), she grabs it back and glares at him. Walking home, she tells Naru-chan about a dream...she met her prince and won him...but it was only a dream...

    The Sailor Senshi are dead...but 5 girls have a chance at a normal life...

    [The End...for one week anyway... :-)]
