Kenshin and Sanosuke continue to fight Zan and Ren while Baku, the third elite member of the Sanada Ninjas, is unnoticed. Sanosuke and Kaoru team up to defeat Zan. Baku distorts Kenshin’s senses, making Kenshin vulnerable to Ren’s attacks. By attacking the bats, Kenshin manages to defeat both Ren and Baku. Misanagi and the Black Knights find the divine elixir among the vast garden hidden deep inside the cave. Melders reveals that he intended to betray Misanagi from the start, permitting Lentz to attack her. However, Schneider defends Misanagi, only to get badly injured by Melders.
