Three streaks of light cut thru the night sky, piercing the silhouette of a gigantic creature. The stricken creature howls in pain and collapses. A group of villagers tells Inuyasha and the others how a demon the size of a mountain died after being hit by a strange light. Only one demon matches that description - the former owner of the Fuyouheki, Gakusanjin! The team rushes to location to investigate and sadly, their suspicions are confirmed. Gakusanjin is dead. Though Naraku is suspected, Inuyasha's sense of smell yields a different clue to the culprits - humans. Who are these people; are they linked to Naraku? Again, strange light slices the sky as panicked villagers beg for deliverance from a horrible demon. The beams blast a hole through the marauding demon - it’s source, a trio of small, masked warriors armed with odd, pot-shaped weapons. Grateful villagers reward the trio with their requested payment -- the carcass of the dead demon and a cart to transport the load. Impressed villagers watch them depart, amazed by their prowess; after all these warriors, the Gyoja, are mere children. The Gyoja return home to a sinister mountain temple ringed by creepy Rakan (Buddhist) statues. Their leader, named Goryomaru, greets them from the shadows, congratulating them on a job well done. Hot on the trail, Inuyasha and company gathers more information about the Gyoja. People are eager to tell them about their odd weapons and where to find them - a holy mountain in the east. As the team ponders a possible connection between the Gyoja and Naraku, a chance encounter with Gyoja scouts leaves little room for doubt. The youngsters open fire on Inuyasha. Realizing their 'prey' travels with humans, the youngsters desist long enough to allow Inuyasha to disarm the children and interrogate them. The rude boys squirm from Inuyasha's grasp and escape, threatening childishly as they run away. After the encounter, the team doubts the scruffy brats have a connection with Naraku. However, just to be sure, they decide to follow the boys to their headquarters. During her solitary search for the Fuyouheki, Kagura discovers Gakusanjin’s corpse. His body confirms her growing suspicions about the baby. Inuyasha and the gang locate the Gyoja temple. The first thing they notice is a nasty blanket of demonic aura wrapped around the place. The second thing they notice is a powerful light blast headed their way. Inuyasha repels the assault with his Wind Scar, and defuses the Gyoja’s powerful weapons. The boys run crying to their leader, Goryomaru, who angrily confronts the team, demanding a reason for the assault. Goryomaru’s appearance is shocking, although he appears to be human; his right arm is a demonic configuration from another world. While Kagura snoops, Naraku and Hakudoshi conspire against her. Suddenly, Kagura encounters a horde of demons swarming towards an unknown destination. Kagura decides to follow them. The demons flock to the Gyoja temple, but hesitate to attack. They linger on the perimeter taking no action. Goryomaru orders the boys to arm themselves, but the Gyoja pots are empty. Goryomaru still has energy left in his demon arm and releases a lethal beam of light, cutting down the fist wave of demons. Inuyasha’s team springs into action, destroying the remaining threat. Inuyasha and the gang mistake Goryomaru for a demon, offending him, and he explains how his appearance came to be. During a battle with a demon, the creature attempted to possess and devour him. Using his Buddhist powers, Goryomaru killed the demon, replacing his lost arm with a demon’s. After questions, Miroku is convinced of Goryomaru’s innocence. The Gyoja killed Gakusanjin as part of their regular slayer duty, case closed. However, Inuyasha is suspicious of Goryomaru’s story. The team is grudgingly invited to stay at the temple for their safety and they join the boys for food while Goryomaru refills the Gyoja pots from his demonic arm. Kagura observes the sinister temple, deducing it’s the perfect place to hide Naraku’s heart. Using her wind blades to slaughter the lurking demons, she forms them into an army of the dead and orders them to attack the temple. The commotion alarms the Gyoja and the gang. And the defenseless boys scramble to reclaim their weapons and discover Goryomaru lying exhausted on the floor, having refilled the precious pots. Inuyasha, Miroku, Sango and Kagome engage the enemy again, joined by the Gyoja. Spotting Kagura, Inuyasha chases and catches her, demanding to know why she attacked the temple. Kagura’s response is enigmatic. Meanwhile, Kagome spots the injured Goryomaru just as Kagura and her minions resume their attack. Turning her back to check on the fight, Kagome suddenly finds herself locked in Goryomaru’s embrace. It isn’t Kagome he’s interested in, it’s the strength of her Shikon fragment Kagura watches the demon crystal clear just as a huge blast of light from Goryomaru’s demonic arm rams a huge hole in her chest. Kagura’s spell breaks, along with her body and she flys off. Inuyasha returns to witness Kagome trapped in Goryomaru’s clutches. Now Kagome is uncertain about Goryomaru’s true nature and unsure if he meant to protect her from the demons, or if he had a darker motivation in mind. … Elsewhere, Sesshomaru's travels are interrupted by an odd event: Kagura falling out of the sky and into a nearby river. Rin attempts a rescue but is caught in the current. Jaken attempts to rescue Rin and is likewise trapped. A quick cut later reveals the trio high and dry on the riverbank. Rin inspects the gaping wound in Kagura's torso and Jaken comments she's a goner. Suddenly, Kagura’s wound closes and she regains consciousness. While Kagura recovers, Naraku and Hakudoshi continue to conspire. They're both aware Kagura is a traitor but Naraku isn't finished exploiting her - yet.
