Queen's Blade s01e12
Titre original : The Open Door - Path to the Queen
Cattleya and Ymir head to Gainos to help out those being attacked by the Army of the Dead. Melona, Menace, Airi and the Army of the Dead continue the onslaught against Reina, Listy, Elina, Claudette and Tomoe. Reina is separated from the rest and must fight Melona. Airi and Menace alone. Reina is about to be defeated when Nowa and Alleyne show up and save her. Listy destroys all the Army of the Dead in one fell swoop once the Queen's Blade battle is announced. Melona shapeshifts into various other characters to try and confuse and outwit Reina. Tomoe comes to aid Reina against Melona dispatching her and continuing the fight against Menace. Melona transforms into Reina to precipitate an ironic end to Reina, however Reina overcomes Melona with her Dragon Tail. In desperation, Melona summons a massive Demon Serpent from Hell. Tomoe attempts to attack it but is paralyzed. Claudette attempts to use a lightning attack, also to no avail. Nanael flys Reina up to the Serpent's face, and Reina stabs her in the eye defeating her. Queen Aldra appears and disintegrates the Serpent. Nanael informs them all she is returning to heaven. Tomoe apologises to Reina for underestimating her. Queen Aldra annouces they can all enter Gainos, and can start the tournament for Queen's Blade.
