In the land of Fiore, magic is everywhere. Sorcerers are like skilled tradesmen who band together in "guilds" and take on paying assignments for non-magic wielders, like hunting monsters, retrieving lost items or running odd errands.

Lucy returns to the guild to apologize, and decides to return home to her father. Natsu, Erza, Happy and Grey find her note and follow her. Dressed in fancy clothes and having endless servants as her disposal... will Lucy decide to stay and never return to Fairy Tail again?
There seems to be a problem with the Master. Is his age finally catching up to him?
Loki has been acting weird, especially around Lucy. He broke up with all his girlfriends and seems to be dying. Lucy then figures it out, the star that cannot return to the heavens. Loki is stuck on Earth?
Continuing from the previous cliffhanger, Loki is found out to be celestial spirit. He's trapped on earth because he unintentionally killed his contract holder, a grand rule for celestial spirits. Lucy tried to save him, but will it work? The appearance of the Spirit King then brings more trouble!
While on vacation at the Kingdom's best resort, Erza seems to be haunted by glimpses from her past. Erza and Happy are abducted and taken into the Tower of Heaven, to Jellal. Will Natsu and the gang be able to save them? What is the Tower of Heaven and what does it have to do with Erza's past?
It is the start of a big battle where Erza's past starts to unfold and the darkness of the tower of heaven and the R-system are revealed.
This episode takes back to "why" Erza gained her mage skills and what happened to Jellal in the past
This episode is basically a follow on of what happens in the rebellion and the revolt against Jellal, being that two of his 'comrades' betray him to Erza. Three new enemies appear. Lucy and Juvia seems to find themselves tied up with a very loud enemy, while Natsu on the other hand is fighting with a really "fowl" enemy; who will win this game?
The revolt continues; the three enemies prove to be excellent fighters. Lucy is forced to fight Juvia of the Deep and Natsu is eaten. The battle looks grim for team Fairy Tail. We also get to take a peak on Gray's and Erza's relationship with each other when Erza first arrived at Fairy Tail. Meanwhile, Erza is still trapped at Sho's card. Who will come out on top of this twisted game?
Convinced by Siegrain's arguments the magic council prepare to fire the lethal weapon Etherion on the Tower of Heaven. Meanwhile, having beaten the leader of the assassin group Trinity Raven, Erza advances to face Jellal alone.
We will now find what is Jellal's plans and the real tower of heaven looks like. Natsu began to confront Jellal, only finding himself overpowered.Natsu starts beating up Jellal, but it was only for Jellal to see his power. Jellal uses a spell to cause him to have incredible speed and then uses another spell with the power of falling meteors.Natsu takes it,then gets up weakly reminding Jellal that the new Tower of Heaven has started to break.Natsu punches the ground and it cracks. The episode ends with Natsu telling Jellal that breaking things are Fairy Tail's specialty and that he is fired up more than ever now.
Natsu fights Jellal. Natsu is hardly able to scratch Jellal, having regained his true magical powers. So, deciding to just try and destroy the tower itself, he angers Jellal. Thus he launches the ultimate Heavenly Body Magic, Altairis, deciding to destroy Erza and Natsu together, not minding anymore about the destruction of the Tower. As the attack launched, Simon defended the two and died. Natsu decides to eat some of the lacrima, thinking to absorb the power of Etherion. He unleashes his true Dragon Slayer powers and continues to fight Jellal, but the Etherion, containing elements other than fire, backfired on him. But Natsu managed, and defeated Jellal. As Natsu faints, the unstable power of Etherion started to leak out of the lacrima and it will cause a huge explosion. Erza decides to fuse with the liquified lacrima to save her friends. The Etherion shot out to the sky.
Erza is in the sky floating above what looks like her funeral, as everyone is crying and Makarov is saying some words on her behalf. The 10 Wizard saints come and say they have decided to award one of the 2 open titles of one of the 10 Wizard Saints to Erza on her behalf. Natsu comes and screams that Erza is not dead, kicking flowers off of her tomb when everyone subdues him. Erza realizes that this is not what she wanted, she wanted to sacrifice herself to make everyone happy, not to see them all sad. All of a sudden she's on the beach, Natsu holding her in the water with everyone running towards them, happy to see them safe. They go with Sho and the others to invite them to join Fairy Tail, but they end up going their own way. When they get home, Fairy Tail has been rebuilt, with a lot of new additions. Juvia has joined the guild as well, and she brought Gajeel with her. Everyone is upset but Marakov calms them saying it was his decision. Later Gajeel is called out by 2 fairy tail members to the tree where he had attacked them back during the Phantom Lord ordeal to fight. He sits there and takes it without fighting back, when Laxus comes, furious that he is in the guild, and because of what people are now saying about the guild. He bets Gajeel to a pulp when the other fairy tail members realize that he is not fighting back since he wants to accepted. Laxus shoots a bolt of lightning at the girl and Gajeel jumps in front of it taking the hit. Gajeel then walks off, now injured, saying he has work to do.
Short on money, Lucy decides to compete in the Miss Fairy Contest to win the 500 000 jewel prize, in spite of stiff competition including Mirajane and Cana. However, the contest goes awry when Laxus arrives with his 3 bodyguards, the Raijinshū. Evergreen turns the all the contestants into stone as hostage for Laxus's challenge: the Battle of Fairy Tail. To save the contestants, the entire guild must find Laxus and Raijinshū within three hours and defeat them. However, Fried has set up runes all over Magnolia Town creating traps with specified rules, including one that prevents people over 80 from passing has been set up around the guildhouse.
The Battle of Fairy Tail moves into high gear, and Fairy Tail members are falling left and right, forced to fight each other to save their friends. With the weakest out of the way, the Raijinshū themselves start to join in. Back at the guildhouse, Makarov, Natsu, and Gajeel are trapped. Frustrated, Natsu serendipidously frees Erza from her stone form allowing her to join the fray. To everyone's amazement, the reclusive Mystogan returns to even the odds.
Erza defeats Evergreen, freeing everyone under the stone spell. Since Laxus has lost his hostages, he takes the whole city hostage with Thunder Palace: lightning lacrimas in the sky that will rain down bolts of lightning and have been enchanted with Body Link Magic, which deals equal damage to the one who attacks it. While Fried is sent to finish off the remaining members of Fairy Tail, Laxus declares he will deal with Erza and Mystogan. Meanwhile, Levy words to dispel the runes around the guildhouse as Lucy and Happy encounter Bixlow. Despite her best efforts, Lucy is overwhelmed and her keys stolen until Loke arrives by his own will to save her and continue the battle.
Lucy and Loke defeat Bixlow while Cana and Juvia are forced to fight one another because of Fried's runes. Juvia, wishing to be accepted by the guild sacrifices herself by hitting a lightning lacrima, hurting herself for Cana. As Cana fights and loses to Freed, Elfman and Mirajane find them. When Elfman fights and loses to Fried, Mirajane unleashes her power, Satan Soul Take Over, and defeats Fried.
With all of the Raijinshu defeated, only Laxus remains. Mystogan arrives and holds his own against Laxus, but Erza and Natsu's arrival distracts him, allowing Laxus to attack and reveal Mystogan's face is the same as Jellal's. Mystogan reveals he's not Jellal but he heard of him before departing and leaving Natsu and Erza to finish the fight. Erza, too stunned by the revelation of Mystogan's identity, is ineffective against Laxus and leaves Natsu to fight him while she disables the Thunder Palace.
With Erza's magical power is running out, the remaining members of Fairy Tail step in to help disable the Thunder Palace, but are rendered unconscious by the effect of the Body Link Magic afterward. Natsu is overwhelmed by Laxus until Gajeel arrives to even the odds. Laxus reveals that he is also actually a Dragon Slayer and casts the Fairy Law spell. When Levy appears and tells Laxus that Makarov is dying, Laxus responds that his chances of being the Master has increased.
After casting Fairy Law, Laxus notices that nobody has been killed, as he in fact, never thought of any of Fairy Tail as enemies, much to his surprise. Laxus and Natsu finally clash one last time and with help of Gajeel, Natsu is able to defeat Laxus. Fantasia is postponed for 1 day, and an injured Laxus goes to Fairy Tail to have a talk with Makarov, in where he's expelled but remain in good terms. Fantasia is then hosted, just as Makarov and the rest of guild, give a sign to Laxus which was something he came up to Makarov when Laxus was a child.
