Episode Guide
Priestess of Seiryuu
For the sake of love

Miaka then dreams of when she met her best friend, Yui, their friendship, how they always stuck up for each other, how they once fought, how happy they were. When she wakes, she finds herself and Tamahome in a room at Taiitsukun's palace atop at Mt. Taikyoku with their wounds completely healed. Chichiri, Taiitsukun, and Nyan-Nyan enter the room and Miaka says she must go back to inquire about what happened to Yui. Taiitsukun then states that there is a much easier way, and leads them to a gigantic mirror which has a record of what happened to the world especially for Taiitsukun herself.

Taiitsukun had the mirror show them what happened three months earlier, and Miaka can only watch in shock as Yui is chased through a slum village in the rival kingdom, Kutou, by three men who catch her, pin her down, and rip off her clothes. Tamahome closes his eyes, and Chichiri gives a pitiful face as Yui is raped before them.  Unable to watch any longer, Miaka screams at it to stop and shuts herself inside her room, saying that it was all her fault.
