Kagome falls from the sky, but InuYasha catches her. Naraku recaptures Kikyo and the others, including Koga. He intends to acquire Koga's shards, but realizes that they are too pure as they are influenced by the incredible strength of Midorikio's will, so he captures Koga to defile them. InuYasha and Kagome arrive and while InuYasha battles him, Kagome aims the sacred longbow of Mount Azusa at Kikyo to save her but Kikyo makes her wait. Naraku drops her and his body opens, revealing the Shikon Jewel inside. Koga tries to get it, realizing that his shards are purifying Naraku, but the Shikon Jewel disappears and Koga is trapped. Miroku uses the Wind Tunnel to suck away the miasma to free him. InuYasha and Koga are able to break him free, but Koga ends up losing his Shikon Jewel shards in the process. With the real Shikon Jewel now inside Kikyo, she has Kagome shoot her. It purifies the jewel, and Kikyo's soul collectors fly at Naraku to try to purify him along with the Shikon Jewel. However, his demonic energy overwhelms Kikyo's spiritual powers, the jewel is tainted, and renders Kikyo powerless and on the verge of death. She tells a heartbroken InuYasha that she is now finally an ordinary woman, and he kisses her before she dies and her soul collectors bring her soul to rest in peace.
