Nea continues to elaborate on the reveal of the previous chapter. He explains to Mana that their mother Katerina lied, as they are not real brothers but one and the same person: The Earl of Millennium. Mana is panicking, breaking into a cold sweat, and when he doesn't respond Nea clasps his face in an iron grip and asks him, with a manic expression, if he doesn't remember devouring him. Mana has a flashback.

While facing his own reflection in a large mirror of what is presumably his bed chambers, Mana, in his Noah form, exclaims that he has "found Nea" within the mirror. He apologizes to Nea, stating that he did what he had to, as finding the Heart is his duty as the Earl of Millennium, but is not convinced. He collapses in despair, mortified at the thought of having killed his brother.

He begins to break the mirror and claw at his own face until it bleeds, wondering how it got like this. Suddenly Adam takes over their body and accuses Mana for the event. Enraged, he exclaims that Mana or Nea were mere illusions, they never ever existed, they were both only the Earl of Millennium. He will achieve his goal as the Earl of Millennium, bringing on the Three Days of Darkness. He forces Mana's consciousness away before blasting his own face with the Dark Matter, hoping getting rid of it would stop him / Mana from being reminded of the twins' existence.

Back in the current story, Howard Link knocks out some Finders from the Order and their golems who are searching for Allen. He shivers as the mere thought of Apocryphos and remembers Lvellie ordering him to protect the 14th and make him his ally. He is conflicted in his loyalties, and still doubts if letting Allen be absorbed by the 14th is the right choice.

Mana is near catatonic but while Nea prepares to attack him again he steps back. Mana once again forgets his own identity, and asks Nea why he is calling him Mana. Nea insists that he is Mana, but Mana violently rebukes. Nea then gives up and says that it doesnt matter if he remembers or not as long as he can destroy him. Mana breaks down screaming while the costume of Adam starts to cover him. While he asks himself whether he truly is Mana, Nea is stopped from attacking him by being restrained by the Finders of the Black Order.
