Sailor Mercury has been taken by Kunzite. Black petals fly around the pavement where they had both been standing. Back at the karaoke room, Luna wakes up and is surprised to see Ami had left already. She then becomes concerned over what Ami had said earlier, about how all the girls had been drifting apart.
Elsewhere, Makoto is walking home, thinking about her confrontation with Tuxedo Mask who she now knows to be Mamoru, Motoki's friend and the man Usagi had fallen in love with.
Rei, meanwhile is confused as to what all of the Youma illusions meant and heads back to her temple. Minako and Artemis are also concerned as to what the enemy may be up to.
Makoto drops by Ami's place after school and finds Ami unconscious on her bed. She immediately gets to work and cooks Ami up a huge meal and nurses her back to health. Almost immediately, Ami becomes overly enthusiastic and energetic and begs Makoto to take her to a theme park. The both go and have a blast on lots of high speed rides. Makoto is wondering if Ami is okay as she's acting like a completely different person.
Motoki drives them both to the hospital in his car (which is green and full of turtle toys and misc items). Ami is immediately placed in a room under care while Makoto and Motoki wait outside her room. Motoki tells Makoto that he has to go but gives her some coffee and loads of candy and snacks for her to eat while she waits. She thanks him. Unknown to her, black petals begin to fall from the air vent above her.
In the Dark Kingdom, Kunzite is holding a black flower that is now in full bloom. He grasps his hand around it, sending the petals floating to the floor.
At the hospital, Makoto hears a nurse scream from Ami's room. She runs in and finds the nurse in shock on the floor and the room full of black petals.
Sailor Jupiter yells at Ami to run but to her horror, Ami stands up and announces that she never asked for her help.
Dark Sailor Mercury tells them that she is ready to fight them all and that there is now use in running. She smiles.
This is the first appearance of Dark Sailor Mercury who has been known in English and Japanese fan groups as "Darkury"!
