Usagi dreams she is in a chapel, at her wedding with Mamoru, as the guests pop open bottles of champagne in celebration and she exclaims at how cold the spray is. She wakes up and realizes that she's still cold, and that her futon is wet. Usagi and Luna are shocked, until Usagi finds Chibiusa under the blanket, realizing that the girl snuck into her bed and then wet herself in her sleep. Angry, Usagi yells at Chibiusa.
In the UFO, Wiseman's projected image appears before Rubeus. Wiseman predicts that the Rabbit's moonbeam will appear near a pedestrian bridge in Juuban the next day, and Rubeus says he will order the Spectre Sisters to watch the area. He asks how the invasion of Crystal Tokyo is going, saying that the Black Moon Clan should be in control of the city by now, but Wiseman informs him that four Sailor Senshi are protecting the city from the Crystal Points. Rubeus muses on whether those four Senshi are connected to the ones he has encountered, but Wiseman simply orders him to find the Silver Crystal and vanishes.
The next morning at the Tsukino house, Usagi has hung her wet futon outside in order to clean it. Shingo taunts her for having wet her bed, not believing Usagi when she insists it was Chibiusa's fault. Usagi sees Chibiusa leaving the house and calls after her, but the girl just runs away. Later, Luna chides Usagi for being mean to Chibiusa, saying that she must have been lonely to sneak into bed with her, and insists that she go find her. Usagi is reluctant to go because she promised her friends she would go shopping with them, but Luna points out that they can't leave Chibiusa alone because she might release her energy beam again. Reluctantly, Usagi agrees.
Chibiusa sits on the steps of a pedestrian bridge near Juuban Park, holding Luna P and telling herself that it's normal for a kid to wet the bed. She remembers a time in the past when she had wet her bed at home, and how her mother had comforted her. She pulls out her Key of Space-Time, looking at it as she remembers that she was advised not to use the key unwisely, but tearfully declares that she wants to go home anyway. A portal opens above her and she begins to rise into the air, but she's only halfway to the portal when it closes again and she falls to the ground. She begins to cry, making the crescent moon appear on her forehead, and the ensuing moonbeam attracts Luna's attention, but also draws Berthier and Koan. The two sisters approach Chibiusa from opposite directions, blocking her escape until Luna P rolls under Berthier's foot and makes her fall. Chibiusa runs but Koan blocks her path, knocking Luna P away when it flies at her. As soon as she does, though, Luna leaps at her with claws extended and Chibiusa flees. Koan and Berthier soon follow after, leaving behind the injured Luna.
Minako, Makoto, Rei, and Ami are waiting for Usagi, wondering why she's so late meeting them. Minako suggests that they wait a little bit longer, but Artemis spots Luna limping toward them and the four girls rush over to her. She tells them that Chibiusa is in danger, and they leave Artemis to tend to Luna while they go to find Chibiusa.
Usagi spots Chibiusa as the girl runs into a construction site and follows after her. She pauses behind a barrier, wondering if she should apologize to Chibiusa, when the girl pushes the nose on Luna P; the distorted image of a woman Chibiusa refers to as "Puu" appears in Luna P's eye, and she tells Chibiusa to be strong and trust in the Sailor Senshi who are her allies. Chibiusa says that she is frightened because of what happened to her mother, and Puu reminds the girl of the Senshi who protected her since she was small, saying that they are still fighting to protect both Crystal Tokyo and the world she is in now. The image then disappears and Chibiusa hugs Luna P, crying, as Usagi wonders at the conversation she just overheard. Before Usagi can decide how to react, however, Koan appears and confronts Chibiusa.
Usagi sneaks away to transform into Sailor Moon, then confronts Koan, but the other three sisters appear and introduce themselves. The other four Sailor Senshi arrive as well and begin to do battle against the Spectre Sisters, and as Sailor Moon shields Chibiusa protectively she is struck by an attack from nowhere. Rubeus appears and introduces himself, saying that his mission is to destroy Crystal Tokyo of the future, and for that Chibiusa must die. He attacks again and again, and as Sailor Moon is injured and falls to the ground Chibiusa calls out her name, crying. Sailor Moon thinks back over her memories of Chibiusa and forces herself to stand, declaring that she will protect the girl no matter what. A rose strikes the ground in front of Rubeus, and Tuxedo Mask joins the fight. He counters Rubeus' attack with a volley of roses, giving Sailor Moon time to attack with Moon Princess Halation, but Rubeus manages to escape and orders the Spectre Sisters to retreat.
After the battle, Sailor Moon asks Chibiusa if she really came from the future, and if she can tell the Senshi about the Black Moon and what they want. Chibiusa clings to Sailor Moon and begins to weep, begging the Senshi to protect her mother.
Wiseman sits alone in his stronghold, smugly assuring himself that no matter how proud they are, Crystal Tokyo and the Rabbit's mother cannot avoid their fate. A hologram of the future queen of Earth, who strongly resembles Princess Serenity, appears before him.
- This episode included the first true appearance of Neo-Queen Serenity and the first use of Dark Water, although Dark Water was not given a name until episode 71.
- In the original version of this episode, the song that played during the battle scene was "Ai no Senshi." In the DiC English dub, the song was replaced with "She's Got the Power." The Catalan dub replaced the song with "Moon Revenge." The Korean dub replaced the song with a translated version of "Moonlight Densetsu." In the Italian dub, the song was originally replaced with an instrumental version of "Eien no Melody," but part of the the original song played when the series aired on the premium Italian channel Hiro in 2010. In the German, Hebrew, and Croatian dubs the song was replaced with a translated version. The French, Hungarian, and Portuguese dubs removed the song completely without a replacement; the Tagalog dub also removed the song, and the scene was heavily edited.
- This episode was omitted from the Swedish dub because the channel on which it was airing did not want to show singing in a foreign language in children's programming.
- The first English dub cut all scenes involving Chibiusa wetting the bed.
