After the El Search Party was betrayed by Haivan, they make it back to Elrianode with the help of Winster's portal, but they're not in one piece. They must take on the new challenge with the Masters.
After returning to Elrianode, they got themselves to safety, although the return was wounded, as Ain had also lost consciousness. Elsword blames Add for the incident, and due to the tension, they head to Denif, who tells them Ain must be brought to the El Lady, Hernia. Eve and Add decide to carry Ain to Elysion, but Elsword and Raven also tag along for their reasons. Elesis, Luciela, and Ciel decide to head to Rosso, while Aisha rushes to Ventus when Rena falls unconscious. Rose decides to find her clues, finding a transmitter. Aisha and Chung decide to go in to the seal of the Master Denif's compass. Some time later, some members return, and Lu manages to piece together Rose's message, mentioning the potential location is Aurora, a winter-like territory that can freeze the skin even solid. Aisha is optimistic about the new results.
After arriving to the temple, Ara, Laby and Gaia decide to try and find clues on where they are exactly. After sparring with Gaia, Ara learns why she was hesitant to say something to Eun; she considers him like family. She manages to convince Eun to first help them with resurrection of the lord, then ask questions afterwards, finding the circumstances suspicious.
Laby, after arriving, decides to spar with Gaia, in order to refresh the skills and show what she has learned. Although Gaia is proud of her skills, he still worries she may get hurt in the Demon Realm, but isn't sure how to say it well. Laby also manages to get in touch with the slightly deeper thoughts, with the help of Nisha.
They have a confrontation with Rosso. Elesis, Luciela and Ciel try to ask them how Rosso arrived, but he refuses to speak. The Fire Master doesn't want them to go to Demon Realm again, but they want to know why. Luciela wants to head back, not for revenge, but because of Winster and his acknowledgement as the Queen. Rosso reveals that he had to go to the Demon Realm and stay there, due to the El's Explosion and Elesis comes to terms as he reminds her of her brother.
Rena wakes up, but wonder about her own condition due to having stayed in the Demon Realm for far enough, although Ventus doesn't want her to go due to worrying. They decide to spar together, and Rena reveals her feeling, including not being sure if her close friend, Lua, is really gone or not. Lincy reveals to Rena that she saw an elf, and she thought it looked like her, but it wasn't her, and it was not a dark elf. They get scolded after exiting the sanctum.
Rose decides to spar with Ventus, in hopes that she can find out what is the transmission. Despite some power, it didn't activate, while Zero starts to worry about Empyrean. By sparring with Ventus at full power, Rose manages to get it working, and it takes her a lot of replaying to decipher the message, which the codename, "Aurora", tells them that the soul is safe, Rigomor is safe and they shouldn't say anything due to potential retracing.
Aisha and Chung meet the Denif in the compass, but the Denif they meet is really different, and they deduces it's the past version. Aisha tries to reaffirm her resolve, but she is shocked to learn that there was a traitor in the Landar family. Chung learns that his guardian stone, and his never-wavering resolve, is what allowed him to proceed farther, despite the Demon Realm's influence.
Elsword, Raven, Eve and Add arrive at Elysion, where they are greeted by Solace and Hernia, but Elsword isn't excited about meeting the El Lady. Solace tells Elsword that Henir's Order is not the only enemy after the El, but questions where he came from, why did he arrive only now, why did he try to fix the El just now. After doing their goals, Elsword is surprised to see Ain appearing after regaining consciousness, and reveals that since the portal was unstable, it must've taken his El energy. Add and Elsword haven't apologized yet, although Eve questions why Adrian provided Add with the device.
Eve decides to check up with Adrian, and for maintenance too, in order to catch up with the current life. However, despite them being the Nasod King and Nasod Queen respectively, Eve decides to go on her personal way as the Nasod Queen, despite Adrian expecting that from a self-learning AI.
Add decides to ask Adrian about the teleportation device, because he wanted to find something to return to past, but he instead questions himself why he decided to stay with the party far longer than he thought, when he could've just asked him in the beginning for help on returning to past. After sparring, Add decides to call off the deal, and decides to stay with the El Search Party for a little more.
Elsword wants to get more power, so he seeks help from Solace, but doesn't get an answer, and learns that the Master's power is not something that can be passed down. Solace questions Raven's resolve that he calls, "self-atonement", and Raven says his body was made from the Nasod, although it is indeed taking away his lifeforce. Elsword can't stay still, and he knows what they're saying, but he is a bit worried about what is going on in the Demon Realm, but comes to term with his current strength, saying it's his friends that made it so far. After Solace finished discussing with Raven, Elsword reveals his feelings to him, and then spars with him. Solace reveals to him that he has talent comparable to the Elrians before the Explosion, and wonders why did he appear just now.
After sparring with Solace, Raven asks about his body, and Solace reveals it's to protect Hernia and the El at that time, and tells him he could've avenged his comrade, but instead chose the atonement path, but Raven tells him he's not too different, since he did choose to help Hernia instead of revenge. Solace chooses to not tell anyone about his condition, but urges him to choose a path he won't regret.
Ain partially awakes, but not completely as he relieves Hernia's memory, and so it's with himself. Ain meets the other incarnations, and he insists about restoring the El's power, but the incarnations causes him to be uncertain about if he can change. Hernia tells him an unusual advice, telling him that she ate a lot, to fill the emptiness she felt as she was fusing herself, and in the end chose to do something she could do. Ain decides to talk with the Goddess Ishmael, and affirms his resolve, causing him to wake up. He admits he's still afraid of change, but he will be fine if he thinks of the change as influence.
The entire El Search Party reunite as Elesis tells them of preparations, but tells them about the missing nobles. Add decides to apologize, saying that although it was the best choice, he could've asked their opinions, and Elsword apologizes for not knowing his own feelings. They prepare the details, as Master Gaia, Laby, Ara, as well as the supposed technician, Calonne, arrive in Elrianode. Meanwhile, the Masters hold the final meeting, as they weren't ready to tell them about the Moon Master, Ebalon, betraying them for Henir's Order. They decide to not say anything, and instead take it upon themselves to figure them out, and find out the true goal.
