Still believing that he helped her out of kindness, she confronts him, and he reluctantly admits that he only needs her as a pawn in his game for power. Mage then finds them, taking Ritsuka and escaping through a portal. In an attempt to cheer her up, he takes her to watch the sun set over the ocean, but accidentally drops her in the water when he becomes captivated by her smell.
Passing through a portal again, they find Lindo waiting for them. Seeing that Ritsuka is soaking wet, his eyes become red and he goes into a rage, attacking Mage. The two battle with magic, forcing Ritsuka to jump between them. Mage decides to withdraw, promising that he will return to claim her. Ritsuka finds Shiki in the school garden destroying thorned roses with his bare hands. She stops him and Shiki tells her that he was doing so because he thought that she might want to help him.
Shiki reveals to Ristuka that he is a fallen angel. He suddenly tells her that he may know the whereabouts of her mother and he offers to take her there. Ristuka is hesitant, due to her previous encounters with the other members of the Student Council, until Azuna interferes. Shiki allows Azuna to accompany them. He takes the girls to a nearby art museum with many hallways like a maze. He disappears and Ritsuka gets separated from Azuna, becoming lost.

While wandering around the museum, Ritsuka catches glimpses of her family's past until Shiki grabs her from behind. He tells her to become his, but Ritsuka pushes him away, prompting Shiki to use his powers to freeze her. He threatens to kill her if she doesn't comply, but Azuna intervenes by repelling him with a capsule of holy water. She attempts to exorcise him, but Shiki reveals that he can't be exorcized due to the angel blood within him. Black wings sprout from his back and he attacks the girls, wounding Azuna in the process.
As he is about to kill her, Ritsuka convinces him to stop, and he teleports them back to the school garden where they first met. As Shiki begins to leave, Ritsuka asks him if he lied about knowing where her mother is, but he only replies by saying that lies are truth before disappearing. While Rem is being rebuked by his father for failing to obtain the grimoire, Shiki takes the opportunity to slip out in search of Ritsuka with Urie and Mage following behind him.
Meanwhile, Ritsuka is shopping with Azuna when she comes across Loewen in the store. Following him outside, she is shocked when he transforms into the mysterious person from episode four and introduces himself as Cerberus, a servant of the fiend Maksis. He then offers to take her to the demon realm to learn the secrets of the grimoire.
Shiki leads Mage and Urie to Azuna, hoping she can tell them where Ritsuka is, but they are forced to flee when Lindo arrives. Meanwhile, Loewen reveals to Ritsuka that she is, in fact, the forbidden grimoire, and her powers will be released on her seventeenth birthday. He tries to convince her to wait in the demon realm until that time comes, but Rem arrives and tells her not to. Loewen seizes her and threatens to rip her heart out if she doesn't come with him, but she repels him with the ring of the Sacred Lux.
Lindo then arrives, and seeing Ritsuka bleeding from Loewen's injury, he blames Rem and attacks him. Ritsuka begs her brother to stop, but his eyes turn red and he grows claws, lashing at her when she gets in his way. Suddenly realizing what he is doing, he reverts to his normal self and Rem disappears.
That night, Lindo tells Ritsuka that both he and their mother knew that she was the grimoire; the pendant that their mother gave her contained holy potpourri meant to mask the grimoire's scent.

Going to bed, Ritsuka wonders who she can trust now. As the school prepares for the culture festival, Rem lies to the student council about the location of the grimoire, claiming it is in Vienna. Meanwhile, Lindo and Azuna decide to place Ritsuka under constant protection, with one of them accompanying her wherever she goes. As the festival gets underway, Urie, Mage, and Shiki all ask Ritsuka to be their partner in the dance, but she refuses. When the time for the evening party comes round, she and Rem are chosen as king and queen, and begin to dance despite the misgivings of Lindo and Azuna.
As they dance, the two realize that they have feelings for each other. When the party is over, Ritsuka heads home accompanied by Azuna and her brother, until they are ambushed by the vampires.

About This Item
Assuming that Rem has come to obtain the grimoire, he and Rem decide to settle their matters once and for all in a battle using their powers. Rem injures Lindo and is about to finish him off until Ritsuka yells at him to stop. She calls him out on his stoic, icy front before yelling that she hates him, despises him and never wants to see him again. Rem leaves heartbroken after Lindo repels him with his magic. Meanwhile, Jek visits his master, Lord Nesta to inform him that he has found the grimoire. Urie, Mage and Shiki confront Rem about his feelings for Ritsuka.
They also tell him that they too have fallen in-love with her, causing Rem to explode in a jealous rage. Ritsuka is hesitant since he was the one who kidnapped Maria, but Jek convinces her that vampires never tell lies. Jek takes Ritsuka to an abandoned building, revealed to be a hideout where Maria is, but Ritsuka is still cautious of him. As they sit down for tea, Jek reveals to Ritsuka that she is, in fact, the daughter of the Demon King, Lord Maksis, thus making Ritsuka half-devil, half-human. The truth sinks into her and Ritsuka laments how she had made the people around her suffer and get hurt because she's the daughter of Maksis.
Jek suddenly tells her that his master, Lord Nesta can remove the grimoire from her, and he leads her down to an underground tunnel where they take a gondola to a castle shrouded in mist. Ritsuka arrives at Lord Nesta's castle where she meets Lord Nesta for the first time. He reveals to her more about her family's past then has her taken away to be prepared for the ceremony. Loewen reveals to everyone that Ritsuka has gone to Lord Nesta's castle, prompting the devils and Lindo to go and save her. Rem is hesitant until Loewen gives him Ritsuka's crown as an encouragement, to which he declares as the "perfect checkmate", thus finally admitting his feelings for her.
Meanwhile, Jek reveals his true colours to Ritsuka when she stubbornly presses him about the ceremony and refusing to comply if he doesn't explain. She is then brought before Lord Nesta whom she tries to attack with a pair of scissors she secretly brought along, but he hypnotises her to comply. While under Lord Nesta's spell, her mind still works and she regrets her decision as she is led to the sacrificial tower.
