The roles of Itsuwa and Touma are now reversed. Itsuwa finds herself in a much more mangled mess than in her fight with Touma against Terra, and as steam covers the battlefield, Itsuwa hides as a frightening person appears to check for any remains of Terra in the location. Itsuwa uses the steam to conceal her and Touma and waits until there is no one around.
In the Tower of London, Stiyl and Agnese continue their interrogation on Lidvia Lorenzetti and Biagio Busoni. Lidvia points out that God's Right Seat exists to pursue a certain idea that alchemists and scholars have written about: "The One Above God".
Meanwhile, Terra manages to return to St. Peter's Basilica and is joined by Acqua. Acqua learns of Terra's failure to retrieve the C-Document, but Terra also brings good news of the Russian Orthodox Church joining their side. However, Acqua brings up a grimmer topic: Terra's suspected use of civilians to perfect his Execution of Light ability. Acqua, utterly disgusted by his treatment to pagans, punished him by hitting him with one of St. Peter's Basilica's massive columns. It happened so fast that Terra was not able to use his ability in time. Terra is left to die inside the basilica. Meanwhile, the Pope talks to Acqua about God's Right Seat's next move, now that Terra is eliminated and Vento is down for the count, and then leaves the decision to Acqua.

- Lidvia refers to a certain theologian who divided angels into nine groups - this is most likely Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite, a late 5th-early 6th century theologian who falsely identified himself in his works as Dionysius the Areopagite, an Athenian convert of St. Paul. He divided angels into three Hierarchies or Spheres, with each containing three Orders or Choirs. In order from highest to lowest, the First Sphere consists of Seraphim, Cherubim and Thrones, the Second Sphere consists Dominions, Virtues and Powers, and the Third Sphere consists of Principalities, Archangels and Angels.
- Acqua of the Back (to Terra of the Left after fatally wounding him): "Just so you know, there is no way you will be chosen by God. I never thought you would remain deluded at this stage. Do you really think you belong anywhere but hell? God knows all. You can ask him for the details at the Final Judgment."
