Are men powerless in the face of overwhelming military might? No, they're not. Everyone fights for the United Kingdom tonight.
- The countercoup forces face Carissa in a final battle at Buckingham Palace. Wielding the Curtana Original, and with additional support from the Griffin Skies and Bunker Clusters, Carissa easily holds her own, despite the large number of adversaries (including several Saint-class opponents), long-range bombardment from the Coven Compass and the knights being swayed after Riméa reveals her hidden motives.
- After Queen Elizard uses the Union Jack to distribute power held by the Curtana to the people of the United Kingdom and Index creates a brief opening, Kamijou Touma is launched at Carissa by Acqua and destroys the Curtana Original with Imagine Breaker, ending the coup.
- Fiamma of the Right takes advantage of the chaos to steal the remote control for Index's John's Pen mode and is heading to Russia to take possession of Sasha Kreutzev.
