Hotaru, Trista, Amara and Michelle are watching a news report about a massive illness that's sweeping the nation that involves a lack of energy and involves mirrors. Hotaru senses something evil is coming and Michelle sees a quick vision of Nehelenia holding Darien in her mirror (though doesn't realise what it is).

Sailor Moon Sailor Stars: The Cursed Mirror! Mamoru (Darien) Trapped in a Nightmare At school, Mina and Serena are running late for their first class. As they reach their homeroom door Serena stops to tell a male student who's staring at his own reflection to hurry up but Mina drags Serena away.

Lita and Amy greet the two girls but tell them their first period is "homeroom" as all the teachers are in a meeting to discuss this new "illness". The girls then see a girl standing in the hallway looking at her compact.

Serena decides to investigate and borrows her mirror to see what's so interesting about it. Suddenly a black energy begins to form and leaps out at Serena's face! Lita runs up to her and knocks the mirror out of her hand, breaking it. The girl becomes depressed andSailor Moon Sailor Stars: The Cursed Mirror! Mamoru (Darien) Trapped in a Nightmare kneels on the floor with a vacant look on her face.

Serena realises that Darien had the same look and wonders if he has this "illness" as well and decides to go check on him.

At Darien's apartment one of Darien's friends is knocking on his door but walks away, assuming he's not home. Serena walks up to the door and reveals her own key to his apartment. She enters and is shocked to see all the mirrors scattered about the place.

She finds Darien admiring his reflection and walks up to him accidentally stepping on another mirror and breaking it. Darien kneels by it and touches the cracks, cutting himself.

Serena holds his finger but Darien yells at her and pulls his hand away. He suddenly apologises and tells her that he hasn'tSailor Moon Sailor Stars: The Cursed Mirror! Mamoru (Darien) Trapped in a Nightmare been himself lately and tells her that he needs rest. Serena leaves, concerned.

She meets up with Amy, Raye, Lita, Rini and Mina at Raye's temple at sunset and tells them what she saw. Rini begins to panic as she thinks Darien has the illness all the other people have. Raye realises that everything that's happened recently is related to mirrors.

Hotaru and Trista then arrive. Hotaru tells them of her vision that the princess will be covered in darkness. Trista tells them that Darien is in danger and that they all need to go save him. They all transform and go to meet Uranus and Neptune who are outside Darien's Sailor Moon Sailor Stars: The Cursed Mirror!

Saturn, Pluto, Neptune and Uranus now join them.
