The Queen decides to test Ciel's loyalty once more after he killed the children, who were kidnapped by Noah's Arc Circus. Her butlers - the Double Charles, come to the Phantomhive manor and orders that a banquet is held at the mansion. The occasion is the arrival of a German banker, Lord Georg von Siemens. The banquet begins and later, Siemens is found murdered in his room at the manor. Everyone among the guests and the staff has an alibi, except for Ciel. He is then confined to one of his guests – Arthur Conan Doyle, a novice writer. Later that night, someone kills Sebastian. He then visits the other servants, giving over his duties to them, and finally, bids Ciel farewell. The guests find his corpse in the morning. Ciel comes to accept his death, after Sebastian refuses to revive. Soon, another guest is found dead and everyone reassesses their alibis. It is discovered that Sebastian had entrusted Mey-Rin with a letter to be sent by an owl in the morning. The mysterious reverend Jeremy Rathborne then suddenly appears.
