This episode begins with the last few scenes of the previous episode including the segment of crests, evolutions and returning to Apocalymon. The full power team of the Chosen Children and their Digimon attacks him, WarGreymon and MetalGarurumon go for the main body while the ultimate Digimon prevent a counterattack by destroying Apocalymon's arms (HolyAngemon opens the Heaven's Gate, which does nothing, and never actually makes contact with Apocalymon). Seeing he is about to be defeated, Apocalymon, in one last ditch effort, begins to detonate his body to "restart" the Digital World. The Chosen Children begin to doubt that they can win, but their Digivices begin to glow and shot out lasers that create a box around Apocalymon, preventing his eruption from destroying anyone but himself. With Apocalymon defeated, the Chosen Children prepare to spend the rest of their summer in the Digital World, after taking a group shot with all of their Digimon allies. However, Gennai informs them that they either had to leave quickly, or remain in the Digital World forever, due to the Digital Gate closing. After saying their good-byes to their partners - with Hikari giving Gatomon her whistle and saying that she is sure that they will meet again - except Mimi, because Palmon hides so she doesn't have to say goodbye. The kids depart for home, with Mimi upset because of Palmon, but as the trolley - the same one from the Seadramon attack - begins to leave, Palmon comes out and says her goodbye to Mimi while running alongside the trolley. The other Digimon soon join her and send off their friends, and the DigiDestined ride into the eclipse. To end the series, the narrator says that it was not the end of the chosen children's journeys. The Gate will surely open once again as long as we keep the memory of the Digimon with us". A beeping of the Digivice (Alarm) can be heard at the end too.
