|Episode 9 - The Magic Knights' Greatest Crisis|
Umi has a dream about being in the fencing tournament, and then wakes up and wishes that was real... You can tell this is probably gonna be the episode where Umi's sword evolves.
Alcyone wishes she could get another chance to challenge the Magic Knights, and then she sees Ascot and Caldina behind a waterfall and overhears their conversation.
Don't ya worry about a thing. I'll make sure to put in a good word, so don't ya fret none. I'm headin' back to my post. All right? You just worry about defeatin' them. Got that? Now go on.
Easy for her to say. Caldina doesn't get it 'cause she hasn't fought them.
Then Alcyone talks to Ascot through the waterfall.
You're right. Only those who've fought the Magic Knights know how strong they are. I can be of assistance to you. Unlike Caldina.
Liar! You screwed up so many times!
I can do it. I have a wonderful medicine.
My medicine can make your beasts many times... No, tens of times more powerful. Your beasts will be invincible after having this medicine. You'll defeat the Magic Knights easily.
If you let me out of here, I can give you this medicine.
I can't! If I did that, Zagato would kill me. We're going to defeat the Magic Knights. He'll probably praise us.
Ascot summons some insects and uses them to free Alcyone from her waterfall prison.
Umi is getting mad at Mokona for fooling around and not focusing on leading them to the Rune-God. She's starting to miss Tokyo a lot and the others feel bad for her, saying they'll help to wish for her to make it to the fencing tournament.
Ascot and Alcyone are lurking near the field where the Magic Knights are. Ascot summons a giant snail monster, named Deucy, and Alcyone gets him to feed it some medicine. It turns out Alcyone tricked him into sacrificing Deucy to strengthen her own powers.
I didn't trick you. That medicine will make Deucy tens of times stronger. However, it uses Deucy's body as the source of its power.
Deucy's explosion makes the entire area around them turn to ice. Umi sees the explosion coming for them and thinks that they're done for, and then has another flashback where she's back in Tokyo. Now Hikaru and Fuu are trying to look for her. Not only that, but Mokona is frozen now as well. They can't use fire magic to free Mokona without hurting him, so now they're going back to town to get some tools.
Wow, this is an interesting turn. Alcyone has come back around to becoming an actual threat again, and she's become way more competent than Ascot suddenly.
Umi thinks this Tokyo she's in might be one of Zagato's traps... but then starts to think it might be real, and she actually came back to Tokyo by wishing for it hard enough when she though she was done for.
Hikaru and Fuu just keep walking in circles, and then they conclude that the magic that is causing this blizzard is keeping them trapped in this area. They can't do anything, and they both collapse in the cold, while Hikaru calls out for Umi's help... Alcyone shows up, and is worried when she sees that only 2 of the Magic Knights were caught in her trap.
As Alcyone is about to kill Hikaru and Fuu, Umi starts to sense them being in danger.
I wonder what happened to Hikaru and Fuu. They're not here...
Could that light have... That can't be. Hikaru and Fuu can use such amazing magic. They must be... They must be alive somewhere in Cephiro.
Then she actually hears Hikaru cry out for help, and realizes this isn't Tokyo, this is just a fake world that she created. She uses the same will that created this fake Tokyo to bring her back to where Hikaru is. She appears before Alcyone, and the pair face off in a sword fight. Alcyone overpowers her, but Umi is determined not to lose. She wishes to win, and her sword evolves in the process. Umi uses her upgraded sword against Alcyone, which sends her running off. The sword manages to break the ice storm, as well as killing the monster. After Hikaru and Fuu finally regain consciousness, they are relieved Umi is unharmed. Umi then reminds them until they save Cephiro, they cannot return home.
Zagato learns that Ascot freed Alcyone, but decides to forgive him this time, for Caldina's sake.
