  • Mokona sends the group back through time into Shura Country, where Sakura and Syaoran meet Ashura, and fight against Kurogane and Fay, who are sided with Yasha. Yasha is revealed to be an illusion created by Sakura's feather, and the battle against Kuroange and Fay was a 'test'.

  • The group resolve to return to Clow Country to face Fei Wong Reed and retrieve Sakura.
  • The group arrive in a 'stagnant time' in Clow Country.
  • Stagnant time is revealed to be where the time rewinds at the end of each day, with each cycle, a person is killed if events are played out differently. "Syaoran" unwittingly kills the townspeople attempting to get information about Sakura.
  • The group arrive in the ruins, where time has been stopped. "Syaoran" decides to tell Fay and Kurogane about his past.
  • The Clone Syaoran arrives with Fei Wong Reed, Fei Wong summons his men to fight Fay and Kurogane while "Syaoran" battles his clone.
  • Clone Syaoran's powers had increased, meaning that he had used it since Nihon.
  • "Syaoran" is seemingly stabbed, then the Clone whispers something in "Syaoran"'s ear and starts dragging him towards Fei Wong. This is a ruse - the Clone had stabbed his own foot.
  • "Syaoran" stabs Fei Wong. Fei Wong attempts to retaliate, but the Clone places himself in the way.

  • Fei Wong is revealed to be Kyle Rondart in a disguise, Kyle dies. Meaning that they hadn't killed Fei Wong. The real Fei Wong appears from behind with the Clone Sakura in his lap, completely unharmed.
  • Fei Wong reveals that Clow Country was once known as Tokyo, the same world Sakura left her feather behind in. Fei Wong breaks the feather out of the ground and returns it to Sakura.
  • Syaoran takes the young Sakura's hand and pulls her free from the black mass, but Fei Wong takes her away as the Clone Sakura disintegrates.
  • The disintegrated Clone Sakura and the Real Sakura merge into one, wearing the dress from the beginning of Tsubasa.
  • Yuuko is called from Tokyo - she is also frozen in time to prevent her own death.
  • Yuuko frees Sakura Kinomoto and Syaoran Li from the tube, because her time has started to move again and therefore dying.
  • Sakura and Syaoran attempt to undo Fei Wong's work by "cleaning" the memories of the various dimensions Princess Sakura visited.
  • Yuuko explains to the two clones that because they are created beings, they cannot die. She goes on to explain her past with Clow Reed and how she will grant both of them life again for a price- She will pay for Sakura while Syaoran has to make a choice (as the price). Yuuko informs the clones that their reincarnation is different, in that they will retain all their memories- the good and the bad. Also, she states that after being reborn, they will "set forth towards this moment". She explains that because of Fei Wong Reed's plans, the past and future are now entangled with one another- however, both are ultimately determined by the choices made in the present. Yuuko then adds on, telling them that they will once again meet up with the real Syaoran and Sakura. However, what happens then is up to them to decide what happens next.
  • Clones Syaoran and Sakura finally admit their love for one another before Yuuko sends them off to be reborn within the same dimension, at the same time so that they can meet each other again.
  • Once they disappear, Yuuko simply wishes the best for the children, knowing that her role has been fulfilled and hence her time is up. After this, Watanuki meets Yuuko as known from xxxHolic Chapter 181.
  • Fei Wong Reed and the rest now realise that the parents are actually the reincarnated clones. There is a brief reunion/surprise between them as they are glad that the clones did not die after all. It is understood that Fay knew of this, although he admitted that he was not very sure of it.
  • Suddenly, Fei Wong Reed realises that Yuuko has died/vanished from all dimensions- something which he cannot accept, and vows to resurrect her
  • In order to do so, he turns back time, using the clones' time as the price - imprisoning them in a tube similar to that the clones had been residing in.
  • In their attempt to save them, "Syaoran" and Sakura-hime are pulled into the tube as well.
  • The clones question the originals on why they tried to save them, when they should have escaped
  • Their reason is the same as the clones- Their existence is precious to the other, hence both parties want the other to survive
  • It is also revealed that Sakura-hime has been seeing the events through Sakura and is aware of the situation
  • Fei Wong Reed in his anger vows to destroy the clones
  • Fay and Kurogane attempt to stop him; their effort is futile as Fei Wong Reed easily repels them
  • Apparently, in order to break the tube, one needs the "permission of those dragged into this", which neither has, hence their failed attempt
  • White Mokona realises that the tube is the very one in Yuuko's shop
  • Fay and Kurogane try again to save the clones and originals, but are badly injured instead
  • The 2 pairs of Syaoran and Sakura comment that even though changing the future may be difficult, it is possible with the help of their friends- Fay, Kurogane and Mokona.
  • With that, the 2 pairs of Syaoran and Sakura combine their powers in an attempt to escape from the tube- With their ultimate goal of all 4 of them surviving
  • Fei Wong Reed initially mocks their attempt, but when the 2 Sakura's realise that their combined power can break the space-time continuum, he reacts in shock
  • Apparently, he placed that power within them- But never intending for them to use it for such a purpose
  • He tries to reason with them, that by escaping, they will only cause space-time to collapse, and that their existence may very well vanish
  • Despite that, they continue in their efforts, with their hearts set on moving forward, whatever the consequences- because they believe in everyone
  • With their combined power, the two Sakura's break out of the tube, stunning Fei Wong Reed
  • Kurogane seized the opportunity and delivered a fatal slash to Fei Wong Reed
  • As he starts disintegrating (like Syaoran previously), he reveals that his purpose for existing was to resurrect Yuuko
  • In his final moments, he tells the two Syaoran's that like him, they too must be punished for their sins
  • The world returns back to normal, but unfortunately, the two Syaoran's were not able to escape from the tube
  • They (the two Syaoran's) emerge in a dark world- one devoid of everything
  • Realising that their magic is gone, they wonder if that was the price to be paid
  • Suddenly, Watanuki appears in front of them
  • Watanuki has finally understood that "Syaoran" and him are not only similar- they are the same being- a fact that Sakura and Yuuko have hinted previously
  • The three of them also realise that this isn't the dream world, but rather a loop-hole within the space-time continuum
  • As the two Syaoran's fill Watanuki with their side of the story, we witness Sakura vanishing
  • With Watanuki now fully aware of all that has been happening, the three of them ponder over their individual choices and how it has affected the others- both negatively and positively in terms of the friends they have made
  • The three of them decide to find a crack in the continuum to escape back to their world in order to carry on with their choices- For Watanuki, it is to wait for Yuuko, while the two Syaoran's need to ascertain what has happened thus far
  • Suddenly, they see Syaoran vanishing, just like Sakura.
  • He explains to the other two that because his creator, Fei Wong Reed, has passed on, he too (as a created being), will vanish- Unlike "Syaoran" and Watanuki, who are not created beings. Also, he informs them to make use of the crack (created due to his vanishing) to escape.
  • As he disappears, he expresses his happiness of existing, even though he was born into this cruel circle.
  • Watanuki and "Syaoran" then escape back to their world.
  • "Syaoran's" price for escaping the void and for continuing to exist is to journey onwards until he finds a way to retrieve Sakura and Syaoran.
  • "Syaoran" and "Sakura" confess their love.
  • Fai and Kurogane decide to accompany "Syaoran". "Sakura" decides to remain in Clow Country due to a vision (where the journey would be made more painful if she were to accompany "Syaoran").
  • As "Syaoran", Fai and Kurogane leave Clow Country, "Syaoran" and "Sakura" reveal their true names to one another - Tsubasa.
  • "Syaoran", Fai, Kurogane and Soel visit the world of Kobato. Kobato lets them stay in her room and in return, they repay her by working. They leave the world not long afterwards.
  • Having inherited the store, Watanuki becomes a timeless being and continues making deals for over a century. In some moment "Syaoran", Fai, Kurogane and Soel arrive the store and Watanuki uses his magic to send them back to Clow in exchange for them giving him inspiration for a new signature.

THE END.
