Yato and Yukine warp over to Rabo's shrine, mistakenly dragging Hiyori along with them. Yato immediately engages Rabo and Furuhime, only to be easily fended off and taken prisoner by a spell of Rabo's which enshrouds the victim in a sphere of water. Hiyori manages to pull Yato out, allowing the fight to resume. Unsatisfied with Yato's performance, Rabo decides to destroy the jewel-like sphere containing Hiyori's stolen memories, causing her to fall unconscious. Angered by this, Yato appears to awaken to his former self as a god of calamity, and easily kicks Rabo into the stone cliff surrounding the site. Having seen that Yato had returned to his old self, Rabo absorbs the storm which had been raging from above, thus merging with its phantoms. An exchange between the two causes boulders to loosen, one of which heads directly for Hiyori. Yato saves her just in time, and holds her tightly to his body in a protective gesture. Hiyori's memories are awakened by his scent, and she returns to consciousness. Realizing he has to get rid of Hiyori, Rabo takes hold of her, but is finished off by Yato and Yukine with a move used for cleansing phantoms. As the three make their way back home, Hiyori tells Yato and Yukine that she never wants to sever her ties with them.
