Inuyasha and Suikotsu fight, and the others become trapped by Renkotsu's flames. However, when Jakotsu tries to kill the children, Suikotsu's head starts to hurt and Jakotsu realizes the doctor personality is trying to come out again. Renkotsu tells Ginkotsu to run over Kikyo, who is still lying unconscious on the ground. Inuyasha is unable to get to her in time because of Suikotsu, but Miroku manages to save her. When Inuyasha gets Tetsusaiga back, the Band of Seven retreat. The group realize that Kikyo has to be taken away from the barrier of Mt. Hakurei to recover, and Inuyasha carries her into the woods, and the others follow. Kikyo wakes up and tells them that Mount Hakurei is too pure. She also says that she doesn't want to and can't go there, otherwise her souls will get sucked out again. The next day, the group is off again, and Inuyasha realizes that Kagome is upset with him, although he doesn't understand why. Miroku tells him to leave her alone for a little bit, but Inuyasha demands she tell him what's wrong. They fight, and she tells him "Sit!" several times. Meanwhile, we see Bankotsu on a cliff overlooking a city, and he says he's finally found it.
