The official website released the spoiler stills and synopsis for the upcoming episode. According to the synopsis, Subaru will try to stop the attack on the mansion.

After he was unable to convince Roswaal to surrender, Subaru is ready to fight him. Apart from the synopsis, the showrunners also released a preview trailer teasing a battle between Elsa and Garfiel inside the mansion.

The trailer also shows Roswaal meeting Emilia and Ram.

Coming back to the synopsis, Garfiel, Subaru and Otto board the dragon car drawn by Petra and head to the mansion.

The previous episode, titled "The Start of the Sanctuary and The Start of Destruction," revolves around Sanctuary’s origin.

The episode also showcases Echidna’s importance in Roswaal and Beatrice’s lives. Beatrice calls Echidna, Mother and she claims to be really close to the witch.

Echidna, Roswaal, Beatrice and Ryuzu need to construct the Sanctuary barrier to prevent any attacks.

Ryuzu chips in and asks if she could be of any help in completing the core. She reveals she meets the criteria to be the core for Echidna’s core.

Toward the end of the episode, Ryuzu sacrifices her life to build the barrier.
