Gilliam is shown recuperating at Castle Des La Teste and recovers quickly in a plot to take revenge on Zola. Delphinium allows Gilliam to take the type-three models of the Black Shadow robots with him. Kluke and Bouquet argue where to go next when Zola tells them that they have to refuel the Mechat. Meanwhile, Nene is informed that the drilling beam on his flying fortress is almost up to power. The groups Mechat lands at a nearby Gran Kingdom strategic refueling base. While Shu and Jiro protect Kluke while she refuels the Mechat, Zola and Marumaro take on the soldiers positioned there. Zola encounters Homeron the Legitimate in the guise of a Gran Kingdom soldier. Gilliam receives word from Delphinium that the Gran Kingdom strategic refueling base was attacked and heads over to that area. Kluke is told by Zola to head to the Hippopotamus Ruins since Nene's flying fortress is heading there. Gilliam attacks and Zola engages him while the others fight his Black Shadows. Kluke solves Chapter Seven of the Extra Seven and uses the crystal on her necklace to power up Phoenix when the Black Shadows charge up their attack. Kluke uses this new ability to block the attack and send it back toward the Black Shadows. Zola uses Killer Bat's Hornet Assassin attack on Euphoria which annihilates Gilliam.
