Rurichiyo has gone back to the Soul Society to take back control of the Kasumiohji Clan. Ichigo, Rukia, Kenryu, and Enryu follow her through the Senkaimon, and they barge in on Rurichiyo and Shu's wedding at the Kasumiohji palace. However, the Soul Reapers of Squad Two, led by Soi Fon, are waiting for them there. Apparently, Gyokaku Kumoi anticipated Ichigo and the others coming and set up a trap in advance. Ichigo and the gang are surrounded, and Ichigo yells out to Rurichiyo. Soi Fon's squad is pushed back by Ichigo's determination. Rurichiyo hears Ichigo call out to her but responds with something unexpected.
