Episode Summary

EDIT
Nocturne: The Lovely Messiah (Yasōkyoku: Ai no Kyūseishu)
AIRED:
1986: Yuri lies to Otoya about using the IXA System on Rook earlier. At another wedding while waiting for Rook, Otoya meets a woman in black, Maya. Rook arrives to kill the bride, but Maya stops him, who was the Queen of the Checkmate Four. After Rook leaves, Maya kills the bride herself; she is Fangire and betrayed them by loving a human. Yuri witnesses this and is consoled by Otoya as Kivat follows Maya.
2008: The Ladybug Fangire escapes the Otoya-possessed Wataru. Megumi is forced to fight for hostages Nago and Kengo but she is injured. "Otoya" tries to teach her how to overcome anxiety but she won't listen. She gets confused over Wataru's knowledge of her mother but comes around when "Otoya" threatens to throw the IXA system into the fire. "Otoya" follows Megumi to where Nago and Kengo are being held. Megumi fights the Ladybug Fangire and saves the hostages. Nago becomes IXA and he and Megumi double-team the Fangire. Wataru at last returns to normal. IXA kills the Ladybug Fangire, but it's soul transforms into a Sabbat. Wataru becomes Kiva to summon Castle Doran as IXA calls the Powered Ixer. The Riders combine their attacks and shatter the Sabbat. As Wataru recovers at home with no memory of the possession, he is amazed at the violin framework he started as Otoya.moreless
