Kagura leads Sesshoumaru to the Land of Fire, where she'd previously found the gate that would lead them to the Next World. Again, blocking their path are the two stone guardians, Gozu and Mezu.

The episode starts out with a recap about what happened in the episodes before. And then you see Sesshomaru and Jaken infront of the cave in Fire Country that leads to the Gate to the other world. The Tenseiga is glowing and rattling. It turns out Kagura told Sesshomaru about this and the whole other world thing. So Sesshomaru goes to the gate and says he wants to go in to Gozu and Mezu. Gozu and Mezu attack him and he uses Tokajin and there's no effect so he decides to attack them with the Tenseiga. When he pulls out the Tenseiga it glows and the gate to the other world opens and Gozu and Mezu knell to the Sesshomaru because the Tenseiga can kill things from the other world. Sesshomaru enters the gate and goes to find Naraku.

Meanwhile Inuyasha and the others are trying to stop Housenki with the corrupted shard then Kagome shoots the shard with a sacred arrow and it ends up with no effect then Inuyasha tells Kagome to shoot another and when she does he attacks with the Kaze no Kizu and some of the diamonds on Housenki are damaged then Housenki knocks Inuyasha to the ground and he doesn't come up. Then Naraku arrives on the seem and tries to steal the shard in Housenki. He thanks Kagome and the others for help. Then when reaching outside his barrier for the shard a Kaze no Kizu rips his arm off. Then Inuyasha appears and he tries a red Tessiaga Kaze no Kizu then a red Tessiaga Bakuryuuha and nothing works. Then Housenki's head appears and attacks Inuyasha and takes him to Naraku and Naraku takes the shard and says I have no use for you anymore and throws Housenki's head and Inuyasha threw Inuyasha's father's tomb.

Then Sesshomaru appears and on the spot jumps through the hole Naraku made and punches Inuyasha in the face and Inuyasha says What's your problem? and Sesshomaru responds Worthless hanyou, defacing our father's tomb. And then Sesshomaru goes to attack Naraku and the episodes ends.

The scene descends upon a fiery mountainside as we see Kagura leading Sesshoumaru and Jaken towards the alternative entrance to the undead land. Jaken relays his doubts on Kagura's intentions. Tenseiga vibrates as if to warn Sesshoumaru of events to come. He is agitated by the sword's restlessness which Jaken mistakens as he being the source of irritation. Cautiously, he journey's onward into the cave led by Kagura.

In the meantime, Kagome calls out to Inuyasha through the dense fog and we see Housenki sensing Naraku's presence through his black jewel. In the distance we see the rest of the team riding on Kirara approaching Kagome with an audible warning of Naraku's presence. Naraku prematurely claims Inuyasha's demise as he materializes. Kagome shoots one of her arrows on Naraku's bubble which clearly has no effect on it. As they get over their initial shock on how powerful Naraku's becoming, Naraku approaches Housenki to claim the Shikon he is guarding.

Kagura is still leading Sesshoumaru and Jaken towards the gates, but before she gets in sight of the guardians, she reluctantly backs off. She mentions how she will not get involved any further and the 2 are on their own. Jaken is noticably upset and once again, Tenseiga pulses as if to warn it's master. Sesshoumaru proceeds towards the gates leading to the undead world. Kagura knows of the dangers, but her curiosity keeps her close by to see if her faith in Sesshoumaru is justified. Sesshoumaru is greeted by the guardians:Gozu and Mezu. The statues question their intentions and Jaken disturbingly claims that they want to pass through. The statues proceed to attack Sesshoumaru as they claim the only way to pass through is to be deceased. Sesshoumaru swipes at the statues and easily dodges their attack. As he lands near the gates, Tenseiga glows once again. The statues claim that nothing in this world could cut them, so when they felt Tenseiga's presence, the attack was promptly halted. They felt the power and knew it could harm them. Instead, they knelt in reverence of the power Sesshoumaru held within Tenseiga as they let him pass through. Kagura was impressed and realizes how Sesshoumaru might just be her way to freedom from Naraku's hold.

Inuyasha has finally awaken and realizes how Naraku has appeared to claim the Shikon from Housenki. Naraku explains that the Shikon turned black because of Inuyasha's interference making it sound like he planned it all. As Naraku reaches for the shard, Inuyasha cuts his stretching tentacles before it reaches the Shikon. Inuyasha warns Naraku about his premature victory and proceeds to use the Red Tessaiga to attempt to knock Naraku out of his bubble. Kagome reflects on a time when that same technique was unable to cut through Hakudoushi's barrier. It fails to cut through. As Inuyasha was getting over the shock, he does another Kaze No Kizu. Naraku absorbs it again. Inuyasha does a Bakuryuuha in hopes of cutting through the bubble. As he wonders if it hits, he is impaled by Housenki's remains thrown at him by Naraku's tentacle. Inuyasha senses the tentacle reaching for the Shikon so he slices the tentacle therefore spilling Naraku's deadly poison gas.

Surprisingly, we see Sesshoumaru throw an attack on Naraku which catches him off guard. Sesshoumaru then precedes towards Inuyasha who is recovering from bad gas. He punches Inuyasha for desecrating their father's grave, then promptly returns to Naraku's presence. The team along with Jaken joins Inuyasha by his father's grave. Shockingly, Housekin speaks to Inuyasha and questions if he still has some fight left in him even after the beating he took...

The demon graveyard turns battlefield in the clash between Sesshomaru and Naraku. However, the powerful demon lord is no match for his nefarious opponent: the power of Tokijin bounces off Narakuís barrier and he mocks Sesshomaruís attack. Inside the cavernous remains of the Dog General, Hosenski invites Inuyasha to ďcutĒ him and gain the power necessary for shattering Narakuís barrier. Kagome recalls how Tetsusaiga gained intensity when Inuyasha conquered the powerful demons, Ryuukossei and Taigokumaru. Inuyasha thinks the same thing and asks Hosenki what would happen to him if he succeeds. Hosenski chides him, and encourages Inuyasha to try. One small catch: if Inuyasha is not worthy of the power, he may lose his life. With Kagome and the others safely out of the way, Inuyasha slams Tetsusaiga down on Hosenkiís head, the resulting blow pelting him with razor sharp diamond shrapnel. While Inuyasha suffers at his attempt to Ďcutí Hosenki, outside Sesshomaru endures Narakuís onslaught. The archfiend strikes at Sesshomaru with vicious, dragon-headed tentacles. Sesshomaru deftly decapitates the beasts, but miasma spews from the headless bodies engulfing everything. Meanwhile, Inuyasha relentlessly hacks at Hosenski despite his increasing wounds from the diamond fragments. The cloud of approaching miasma forces a change of plan for the team. While Inuyasha is busy with Hosenki, Kagome attempts to purify the encroaching poison, quickly running out of arrows. The only remaining arrow is Kikyoís arrow, which rejected her. Outside, Naraku threatens to poison every living thing. Sesshomaru replies the lives of Inuyasha and the others mean nothing to him. Heís out to destroy Naraku at all cost. The menacing miasma draws closer and Inuyasha is forced to abandon attempts on Hosenki to save his friends from danger. Hosenki provokes Inuyasha, telling him he couldnít use his power even if he received it! Inuyasha replies he doesnít need Housenkiís power if it means sacrificing his friends. To punctuate his point, Inuyasha slams Tetsusaiga down releasing Kaze no Kizu attempting to push back the poison vapors. Naraku watches the approaching Kaze no Kizu; confident the attack is futile. Suddenly, Narakuís barrier is shredded by dozens of diamond spears, and Narakuís smirk is replaced by fear. Below the stunned monstrosity, Inuyasha watches in amazement as Tetsusaigaís blade transforms into diamond. Inuyasha turns towards Hosenki and watches the old demonís skull crack. Hosenki tells the boy because he cared more for his friends than for gaining power, Inuyasha earned his special power - Kongosoha. Inuyasha attacks with renewed determination, strength, and a sword radiating with new power. The mighty Kongosoha attack pierces Naraku with lethal diamond spears. As the stunned villain hangs in mid-air, Sessho-maru deals the final blow with Tokijin and Naraku is shredded to bits. In the wreckage of Narakuís shattered body, Kagome spots the final shard. Kikyoís arrow beckons her, finally allowing her to use it. Kagome takes aim and fires into the cloud of Narakuís body parts, purifying the fragment, but opening up a hole into which Naraku vanishes. Back in the real world, Kagura secretly hopes for Narakuís destruction as she travels back to Hakudoshiís hide out. Recovering inside his barrier, Hakudoshi greets Kagura with a cross-examination but is rudely interrupted by the untimely arrival of Narakuís remains inside his own protective barrier. Taking shape inside the barrier, Naraku sees Hakudoshi - Kikyoís arrow struck him in his heart In the boundary world, Inuyasha takes possession of the Shikon fragment with Housenkiís approval. Inuyasha is more determined than ever to fight those who would seek the jewel and finish Naraku once and for all. The gang leaves, following Sesshomaru, but their victory is somber. Inuyasha seems distracted and Sango suffers renewed worries about Kohakuís fate. The end of the Shikon Jewel means certain death for her younger brother.
