In Meridian, Elyon Brown is at the apogee of her powers and excitedly prepares for tomorrow's Coronation. But Prince Phobos and Cedric talk out of her earshot: there's something afoot that Phobos isn’t telling his sister: The Coronation was changed to today in which Phobos will drain Elyon's powers.
Meanwhile in Heatherfield, Caleb has finally figured out with the Guardians’ help a way to get his men across the Meridian Plains unseen and immediately commences the attack after Cornelia Hale sensed Elyon was in danger.
Indeed in Meridian, Phobos revealed to Elyon his true self and scared her, then tied her to the throne in order to take her powers. Even worse, Lord Cedric, who lured Elyon into "coming home", revealed his true self, the people in the portraits of the royal family were goblin-like Meridian aristocrats siding with Prince Phobos all along, as does Miranda who revealed her true identity as Phobos' servant.
But the Guardians, the Rebels, Matt Olsen, Blunk and some guards of Phobos converted by Tynar, began the invasion. The final battle is about to begin. The Guardians and Caleb's troops were winning until Phobos, who managed to steal some of Elyon's power, came and turned the tables on them. But just before he could take the Heart of Kandrakar, Elyon (who was rescued by Cornelia) arrived and turned the tide of the battle.
With Elyon's help, Phobos was defeated and imprisoned along with Cedric and all of his monsters in the Mage's chamber in the Infinite City, but the Guards were forgiven and Elyon became the ruler of Meridian.
