Fate/Apocrypha Episode 9
Hundreds of Flames and Hundreds of Flowers
Darnic observes the Grail and reminisces how he stole it from Fuyuki. Outside, Shiro is able to battle Frankenstein’s Monster to a standstill while Shakespeare observes. Astolfo attempts to assault the Hanging Gardens but is shot down by Semiramis’ magic. Achilles begins to battle Chiron in earnest, demonstrating that he has learned skill Chiron never taught him. Karna continues to battle Vlad while Atalanta is forced fight Spartacus. She unleashes her Noble Phantasm on him, but he absorbs the attack and begins to mutate. In the castle, Sieg manages to free all of the homunculi and arrange for their escape. He then sees Astolfo falling from the sky and leaves to help. Astolfo survives the fall and encounters Mordred, who begins a battle with him. Jeanne senses Shiro’s presence and decides to pursue him, despite Semiramis’ best efforts to stop her. Warned of Jeanne’s approach, Shiro retreats and has Shakespeare trap Frankenstein’s Monster in an illusion. Frakenstein’s Monster breaks out, but is traumatized from the experience, requiring Caules to use a Command Spell to calm her down. Shiro then instructs Atalanta to lure the heavily mutated Spartacus to Jeanne. Darnic then heads out to “conclude the battle.” In a post credits scene, Mordred defeats Astolfo, but before she can finish him off, Sieg arrives and challenges Mordred.
