Enemies? Allies? The Starlights and the Sailor Soldiers
Amara and Michelle who also happen to be there say hi to Serena. They ask her how Darien's doing but Serena doesn't know how to answer as she hasn't heard back from Darien this whole time. Amara comments to Michelle about how Serena hasn't been acting like herself lately.
Elsewhere the Three Lights, Seiya, Yaten and Taiki are rehearsing a song. Seiya begins thinking about Sailor Moon and stops playing. He wonders aloud if Sailor Moon and the others are their allies or enemies. Yaten agrees that they may be useful but Taiki finds the very idea insulting as they have no idea what they've all been through. Seiya mentions that she has a power that they don't and that she reminds him of their princess. This makes Taiki really furious.
The next day at school Serena and Lita are in the school greenhouse. Lita is collecting strawberries to make a strawberry shortcake for the girls but Serena is eating as man as she can.
Lita suddenly senses someone else in the next room. She mentions to Serena that recently there's been a flower thief and that if it's him they should catch him.
They slowly sneak up to the door but Lita trips and falls right into the next room and collapses at Taiki's feet. Taiki is surprised as he thought he had the place to himself. He then holds a red rose and quotes some poetry by Blake. Serena, not having a grasp on English, thinks he said "break" and suggests they all go have some coffee and cake together. Taiki begins laughing at her.
He then recognises Lita as being in the cooking club and asks if she would like to join him on a cooking show as he had been told to find someone to be on air with him.
Sailor Iron Mouse meanwhile is on a lunch break outside with all the other office workers in Tokyo. She begins thinking how she's recently begun to feel as if she doesn't matter and that she's just part of a much larger plan. Suddenly her phone rings. Sailor Galaxia summons her to her throne room.
Iron Mouse teleports there and is confronted by two new mysterious shadowy figures. Sailor Galaxia puts the pressure on to find a true Star Seed and blasts her with a warning blast, knocking her off her feet.
The two mysterious figures laugh.
The following day Mina, Amy, Luna and Artemis are at Raye's watching Lita on tv and are very excited for her to be on a live show with Taiki, though Mina is a little jealous. As soon as it's revealed that they're cooking strawberry shortcake though Raye and Mina become furious as that cake was meant for them.
At the studio the show starts well, even though Lita is obviously nervous. Things go hilariously bad though when Lita can't find the eggs. Serena sees them and grabs them then begins to cook the cake by herself live on tv. She accidentally makes the cake out of baking soda instead of flour and casuses the oven to blow up, covering everyone in the studio with cake mix.
Taiki begins to laugh hysterically. Taiki thinks to himself how he hasn't laughed in so long. Yaten and Seiya watch from the rear door and are happy to see him laugh.
After the show, the cook sees Serena and Lita in the hall and tells them that the show ended well and that he had fun. As he walks around the corner though he's attacked by Sailor Iron Mouse and has his Star Seed removed.
Serena and Lita transform and run to his aid. As his Star Seed turns black, Iron Mouse retreats, worried about what Galaxia will do to her now. The chef transforms into Sailor Chef and attacks them with flying frying pan attacks. Sailor Moon begins to heal him but Sailor Chef magically creates a chocolate cake and gives it to Moon as a peace offering. Sailor Moon begins eating it. Sailor Chef pulls out a knife and goes to cut Sailor Moon.
Sailor Star Maker as well as Fight and Healer who had been watching, walk away.
Later that evening Serena treats Raye, Mina and Amy to shortcake at Crown Fruits Parlor as she had given all her strawberries to Taiki.
Meanwhile on the coast, Michelle and Amara discuss how they sense that a bigger wave is coming and that it may be the biggest threat they've ever faced. Amara tells Michelle that she doesn't care as long as they're together.
Monster of the Day
Sailor Chef was an obvious "Iron Chef" pun being made out of iron. He had flying frying (possible Japanese "r" and "l" related pun) and could magically create cakes as well as possess a huge collection of knives.
He was defeated by Eternal Sailor Moon's Starlight Honeymoon Therapy Kiss.
This was the first time that Sailor Aluminum Siren and Sailor Lead Crow appeared in the anime though their true identities were hidden in shadows and all they did was giggle.
This episode featured the first time another Sailor had transformed simultaneously with Eternal Sailor Moon. Result? Cool editing of the transformation sequences.
