The villagers are looking for Kagome when they find her bike.
Back in Present day Tokyo, Kagome's mom and Souta talk about Kagome.

Inuyasha and his "mother" are still standing together while Kagome is desperately willing him to wake up and realize that she's not his mother.

Inuyasha's mother says that she has to go back to the next world now, and makes a flower appear in her hands. she sends it onto the water where it breaks apart and the petals float. Then she tells Inuyasha to look into the water. He sees his own memories from when he was a little boy. (SO CUTE!) His mother hugs him but from behind we see that her hands melt into him, absorbing him.

While Kagome is trying to figure out why she can't move, she realizes that everything thus far has been an illusion. The pond is a swamp and there are chains holding her down. Myouga the flea comes over to Kagome and tries to wake her up by sucking her blood. It works. Kagome can move again.

Jaken is in a bout, coming towards Inuyasha and the woman who now has no face. He calls her the "nothing woman" and hits her for absorbing him so quickly because he's going to die if she does. He asks her if she found out the location of Inuyasha's father's grave.

Kagome is hiding around the corner and Myouga warns her about Jaken's staff of heads.

The nothing woman absorbs Inuyasha further, trying to get him to remember the location of the grave, but he doesn't know. Then he says "the right black pearl" Jaken yells at her to find out more but the nothing woman tells him that if she goes deeper, his soul will break. While in his illusory state, Inuyasha realizes that the woman is not his mother.

While Jaken yells at the nothing woman that if she doesn't hurry up he'll get scolded by Sesshoumaru, his staff disappears from his hands. Kagome has grabbed it from behind and then she kicks Jaken froward. Then, swinging the staff like a golf club, she hits Jaken several feet into the air. Then she runs after the nothing woman. Myouga tells her that she has to wake up Inuyasha's soul in order to free him.

Myouga tells Kagome that the nothing woman is made up of the souls of women who have lost their children in wars. That's when Kagome sees the real form of the nothing woman's spell reflected in the water. The disturbs the water in order to free Inuyasha's soul and Inuyasha is knocked away from the nothing woman.

Inuyasha is pissed that the nothing woman took the form of his mother but Kagome tells him that it was all Sesshoumaru's and Jaken's doing. Then Sesshoumaru's voice is heard. He says that he has finally realized the location of the grave. Before Inuyasha has time to finish yelling out "Sesshoumaru!" Sesshoumaru is already in front of him, holding his neck with one clawed hand, while the rest of Inuyasha hangs several feet above the ground. He's still talking about his father's grave. Then he puts one clawed finger in front of Inuyasha's right eye. Yellow electricity shoots out into Inuyasha's eye and Sesshoumaru pulls out his pupil, then drops Inuyasha to the ground. Inuyasha's pretty pissed by this point. He atacks Sesshoumaru and Sesshoumaru sends his whip thing after him. Right before he's to deliver the final blow, the nothing woman throws herself in front of Inuyasha, protecting him but getting destroyed in the process.

Sesshoumaru lands expressionlessly several feet away and Kagome begins yelling at him. He looks at her but Myouga tells her not to oppose him since they'll get killed.

Jaken is crawling on his hands and knees when Sesshoumaru calls for him. He brings back the staff of heads and offers it to Sessoumaru. Sesshoumaru takes the staff, drops the black pearl to the ground and puts the end of the staff on it. The old man's face starts laughing. The pearl glows purple then goes out but a portal opens to Sesshoumaru's right. He goes in along with Jaken.

Myouga tells Inuyasha to hurry after him because Sesshoumaru will get the treasure. Inuyasha turns to Kagome to tell her to stay there because it's going to be dangerous, but Kagome is already halfway inside the portal. She tells him to hurry up and then disappears inside. Then he follows her.

They arrive at the grave. A bird of bones picks them up and carries them to a giant skeleton that Inuyasha says is his father. Kagome is amazed at the size of it. Myouga tells her that Inuyasha's father was a taiyoukai (great youkai) who lived for a very long time. Sesshoumaru is after the enchanted blade inside. They go into the skeleton.

Inside, Sesshoumaru is standing in front of a sword that is point up in a stone table of sorts. Sesshoumaru says that the blade is capable of destroying 100 youkai with one swing. Its name is Tetsusaiga. He puts his hand on the hilt of the blade as Jaken says that Tetsusaiga was made from the fang of Sesshoumaru's and Inuyasha's father. Sesshoumaru's tries to pul the sword free but electricity crackles all around his hand and he cannot wield the sword.

That's when Inuyasha and Kagome arrive. Inuyasha attacks but Sesshoumaru easily dodges and Inuyasha ends up face down in the skulls that litter the floor of the grave. As Inuyasha is threatening Sesshoumaru, Myouga turns Inuyasha's attention to the Tetsusaiga. Myouga tells Inuyasha to pull it out, and then says that Sesshoumaru wasn't able to pull it out. Inuyasha claims he doesn't want it. Sesshoumaru asks if he's implying that Inuyasha will be able to and Myouga says yes sine the grave was hidden in Inuyasha's eye. Inuyasha doesn't want it.

The two brothers fight. Sesshoumaru is much faster than Inuyasha since he's a full demon. Myouga tells Inuyasha to take the sword. Then Kagome yells down to Inuyasha to take the sword because if he pulls it out then Sesshoumaru will lose face. Inuyasha strolls over to Tetsusaiga as Sesshoumaru glares.

Inuyasha puts his hand on the sword. There's no electricity but he's having trouble. A light shines from the stone table. *commercials*

The light is getting brighter and Sesshoumaru's glare more heated. Then the light goes out, Jaken's jaw drops, and the sword is still in the table. Then Sesshoumaru attacks.

He easily catches up to Inuyasha and then pins him against a wall of the grave. Hee takes his hand back and it begins to glow green. Then he thrusts it towards Inuyasha. Inuyasha dodges and the wall that was behind him melts. Its poison. Inuyasha runs and Sesshoumaru takes out his glowy whip thing. Inuyasha slides several feet and Jaken prepares to throw flames at him. But Kagome takes Jaken on. He pushes her back. As Inuyasha worries about Kagome he gets hit by the still-attacking Sesshoumaru.

Kagome puts her hand on the hilt of Tetsusaiga to help herself stand up. Inuyasha is about to get it with the poison claws again. He springs forward but Sesshoumaru stops him with one hand. He then pushes him into the ground and is about to kill him. Kagome steps forward, still holding on to the sword, when it comes free.

Shocked, Sesshoumaru stops his attack and turns back to look at Kagome. "Sorry...it slipped" she says innocently. Jaken, Inuyasha, and Sesshoumaru are utterly and completely shocked.

Annoyed with Kagome pulling out the Tetsusaiga, Sesshomaru uses his claws to melt a platform into acid which buries Kagome. Enraged with this, Inuyasha becomes more fierce with his attacks on Sesshomaru, but he is still beaten. Kagome emerges from the acid without any damage as the Tetsusaiga protected her and she gives it to Inuyasha. Sesshomaru then transforms into his full dog demon form. Inuyasha is unable to wield the Tetsusaiga's power while in battle with Sesshomaru. However, when he vows to protect Kagome, the sword activates and Inuyasha uses it to cut off one of Sesshomaru's arms. Myouga later explains to Kagome that Tetsusaiga activates for Inuyasha when he has the will to protect humans. When Kagome asks Inuyasha if he would protect her, he arrogantly boasts that the sword should be used only to slay demons and gather Shikone shards. An annoyed Kagome pushes Inuyasha to a bridge and tells him to sit. The force from the enchantment makes the bridge collapse making Inuyasha fall into the river.

Now knowing of Tetsusaiga's location, Sesshomaru tries to attack Inuyasha, but his now demonic mother gets in the way of the attack as she still holds the will of protecting Inuyasha.

When Sesshomaru and Jaken arrive at his father's tomb, he is unable to touch the Tetsusaiga because of his demon blood. Inuyasha later shows up with Kagome.

Kagome's time. Kagome's mother is trying to fix her own bike to fit Kagome's size since Kagome took her bike with her to the Sengoku Jidai era. Shows she really cares for her daughter. Her mother tells Souta to help her sister in any way possible and Souta agrees.


Back in the illusion world. Inuyasha's mother's face casts no reflection back on the surface of the pond and she's a fake, but Inuyasha can't see or hear her. Inuyasha's "Mom" places a lily on the surface of the water and tells Inuyasha to look into it and he's surprised to see his child self playing with a ball. The ball bounces over a bridge and he rushes to get it. His mother stands by watching him play, her face is shadowed. Inuyasha drops the ball and runs to her and she embraces him warmly. Inuyasha comments on how this was what he looked like when he was a child. His mother then hugs him like she did when he was a child and Inuyasha starts to go into a daze while his mother starts to absorb him by putting her hands into his back.


Kagome then sees the illusion. She can't move because she's held by chains and they're really not at a beautiful pond, but still where they were to start out with. Myouga appears and realizes Kagome is paralyzed and so he sucks out blood from her neck returning her to her senses out of the illusion she's stuck in. Kagome breaks free of the chains. Jakken goes to the woman who's nearly completely absorbed Inuyasha and calls her "Nothing Woman" and asks if she did what he told her to. She says not yet and Jakken asks her to probe into his soul further to find out the location of his father's grave. Inuyasha says it's starting to hurt him and he doesn't know where the grave is. Suddenly, a black pearl appears and Inuyasha mutters… "Right black pearl". The nothing woman doesn't want to probe further because it will break Inuyasha's soul, but Jakken insists on it. Inuyasha, in his dream world, starts to wake from his daze and Kagome appears, smacks Jakken around and then grabs Inuyasha before he's totally absorbed by the Nothing Woman.


Kagome can't catch her since she moves very fast and is still hanging onto Inuyasha and Myouga tells her that the Nothing Woman is made of souls of dead mothers who lost their children during the warm. The Nothing Woman feels love for her children, and love for Inuyasha. In the water's reflection, Kagome sees the illusion of the woman holding a baby Inuyasha and she messes up the water and Inuyasha returns to his senses. He's angry at the betrayal of the Nothing Woman and more so at his older brother, Sesshoumaru.


Sesshoumaru appears, grabs Inuyasha and tells him he solved the riddle to where the grave is. "The right black pearl". He then uses some sort of weird magic and extracts a black pearl from Inuyasha's right eye temporarily leaving Inuyasha half blind. He then attacks Inuyasha with his whip things and right before it hits Inuyasha, the Nothing Woman jumps in front of him protecting Inuyasha from the blow, but being destroyed in the process. The nature of the Nothing Woman is to protect her child and Inuyasha was her child. Using the Staff of Heads from Jakken, Sesshoumaru hits the pearl and it opens a gateway to the grave of Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha's father. Inuyasha sits back in shock and suddenly realizes that Kagome has already started to climb through the portal. He yells for her to wait and jumps in to catch up.


Through the portal they are transported to somewhere far away in a mass of bones and in the middle are the huge bones of Inuyasha's dog demon father, the Tai Inu-youkai. The bones are so huge that they're about the size of a mansion and they ride a bone bird inside of the bones of Inuyasha's father. It's here that they learn what Sesshoumaru was after… the legendary sword, Tetsusaiga (it's said "Tess-sigh-ga), made from one of the fangs of Inuyasha's father.


Sesshoumaru attempts to pull the sword from the pedestal, but it repels him and burns his hand with a ward. Sesshoumuaru wonders why he cannot touch it and then Inuyasha appears. Kagome tells him to whoop Sesshoumaru's butt and take the sword, but Inuyasha's more interested in just beating his brother silly instead of even taking notice to the rusty old katana in the pedestal. He attacks, but it's useless since Sesshoumaru is many times faster and stronger, so Inuyasha approaches the sword and Kagome tells him that by taking the sword, he can make his brother jealous. Inuyasha likes that idea so he reaches for the sword and he's not hurt by the barrier at all. Inuyasha tries to pull the sword, but nothing happens. He can't pull the sword out! There must be some mistake! Sesshoumaru races to attack Inuyasha since Inuyasha's obviously not gonna make the task of taking the blade any easier and they duke it out again.


After Kagome kicks Jakken's butt for being annoying, she then races to try to save Inuyasha since he's getting really beat up. Before she can, she reaches the sword and holds on to the hilt to help her stand up. In her haste, she accidentally raises the sword and it comes free of the pedestal! Wow. Anyway, Sesshoumaru stops his attack and turns back in awe at the human girl who pulled the sword. Kagome simply just says, "Sorry... it slipped!" What does this mean? Is Kagome special or something? Will Jakken ever shut his fugly mouth? All will be revealed in the next episode. (Except the part about Jakken shutting up. He sadly never does that the whole freaking series)
