The episode begins with the Cures reaching the inner gates of the Phantom Empire and as they make their way to the main room, they are attacked by Choiarks. They fight them off by changing into their alternate forms.

As they continue, the Oresky Trio was watching and waiting to battle them. Leaping from the top of the palace, they stop the Cures before they could find Queen Mirage. Princess, Honey, and Fortune stay back to fight while sending Lovely, Blue, and the Mascots on.

Princess fought Namakelder, Honey fought Hosshiwa and Fortune fought Oresky in their respective environments. The Cures were easily outmatched by them, with each revealing their own desires. Namakelder felt that it was useless putting effort into anything, Hosshiwa wanted to eat all of the sweets herself and only cared for herself, and Oresky strived to be number one.

Meanwhile, Queen Mirage learns that Lovely and the others were approaching her.

As the battles continues the girls tell the Trio that their desires aren't good- and won't help anyone, even themselves, in the long run. Princess tells Namakelder about the experiences she had with her friends and how they have helped her grow and understand the importance of working hard. Honey tells Hosshiwa that eating with someone else is more fun than eating alone, and Fortune tells Oresky how it would be unfulfilling to be number one because he would be alone and unappreciated. Each Cure changes into her innocent form and purify the trio using their respective attacks, Princess Windy Wink, Honey Tempation, and Emerald Illusion.

As the trio were fading away, they had become happy and at peace with themselves. Namakelder learned about the importance of putting effort into things, Hosshiwa learned about how it was good to be happy, and Oresky learned that it was not important to be number one.

Lovely, Blue and the mascots discovered the entrance to Mirage's chamber and they enter it. As they did, she angrily prepared herself for battle.
