Ruler of the Galaxy, Galaxia's Threat
Tuxedo Mask tells her that no-one can rule the galaxia and then leaps towards her. Galaxia fires a golden bracelet blast at him which removes his Star Seed. As he kneels in front of Galaxia dying, he tells her that she will be stopped because this planet is protected by the Sailor Soldiers. His body then begins to glow, he whispers Serena's name and then his disappears in a burst of golden energy.
Sailor Moon and Sailor Star Fighter are both speechless.
Sailor Galaxia raises her arms and then fires a blast at Sailor Moon. Star Fighter leaps in front of her but just as she's about to be hit Sailor Chibi Chibi Moon teleports everyone to Galaxy TV's headquarters.
Sailor Galaxia wonders who exactly these people are with the ability to come and go as they please.
Moments later Sailor Moon wakes up. She asks where Darien and the others are but quickly realises that it actually happened and that they are dead.
Sailor Pluto, Saturn, Neptune, Uranus, Star Fighter, Star Healer, Star Maker and Chibi Chibi Moon are with her. Chibi Chibi Moon is sleeping, exhausted.
Sailor Uranus and Neptune leave to defeat Galaxia once and for all. Sailor Pluto and Saturn move to follow them but before they go Saturn asks Star Fighter if she loves Sailor Moon. She then asks her to believe in her.
After they've gone Chibi Chibi Moon awakens and asks the Starlights if they have nothing to protect. Sailor Moon and the Starlights remember the dying words of Venus, Mercury, Jupiter and Mars who asked the Starlights to protect Sailor Moon and for Sailor Moon to be strong. Sailor Moon and the Starlights stand up and move to join the Outers and defeat Galaxia.
In Galaxia's throne room Sailor Neptune attacks with Neptune Deep Submerge but it simply falls apart in front of Galaxia. Sailor Uranus summons her Space Sword and runs towards Galaxia but she simply grabs a hold of it's blade and cracks it before picking up her whip and knocking Uranus and Neptune to the floor. Galaxia is about to steal their Star Seeds when Sailor Pluto and Saturn arrive and save them with Silent Wall
Sailor Saturn announces that she will kill Sailor Galaxia even if it means sacrificing her own life. Galaxia simply laughs and explains to Saturn and the others that she was the one responsible for reviving Queen Nehelenia in Episode 167 which in turn forced the reawakening of Sailor Saturn. Galaxia tells them that she wants to collect all the Star Seeds and collecting one that isn't mature yet can cause some problems.
Galaxia the blasts Saturn and Pluto, destroying both Saturn's Silence Glaive and Pluto's Garnet Rod.
Galaxia tells them that they shall die but she will make them an offer to survive by wearing her bracelets and serving her. Sailor Uranus stands up and tells Neptune that if she's by her side she will not hesitate to join Galaxia. Pluto and Saturn scream for them to remember their mission but Neptune and Uranus accept Galaxia's offer. Galaxia removes their Star Seeds and attaches her bracelets to their wrists.
Huge power enters them.
Galaxia then tells them to steal the Star Seeds of Pluto and Saturn and thinks how time and again she has seen Solar System Sailor Soldiers turn on each other in the final days and how friendship is a illusion.
Uranus and Neptune attack Pluto and Neptune. Pluto and Saturn realise they're serious. Having no attacks to use though without their items they simply accept their fate and stand still as their Star Seeds are removed.
Sailor Moon, Sailor Chibi Chibi Moon and the Starlights enter and are horrified to see Pluto and Saturn glowing and near death. They whisper for Sailor Moon not to give up and then disappear the same as Princess Kakyu, Tuxedo Mask and the Inners had done before them.
Sailor Uranus and Neptune stand ready to attack.
This episodes saw the death of Sailor Saturn and Sailor Pluto and also have us a look at the death of Tuxedo Mask which happened offscreen in Episode 173.
Many fans wonder why Sailor Saturn didn't kill Sailor Galaxia or Sailor Pluto didn't freeze time. If you look closely during Sailor Galaxia's attack you can see that both the Silence Glaive and the Garnet Rod were destroyed leaving both Saturn and Pluto pretty much powerless. All of their attacks required the use of both items.
Tuxedo Mask's Star Seed looks a lot like the Golden Crystal featured in the Sailor Moon SuperS season and there's a reason for this; in the manga the Golden Crystal is Tuxedo Mask's Star Seed much like how the Silver Crystal is Sailor Moon's Star Seed. The Golden Crystal's origins were changed for the anime though and was never seen after the Sailor Moon SuperS finale. The most plausible reason for the change is probably the fact that the anime had to be written before the SuperS had completed in the manga.
