Naraku gives his soul to the Shikon Jewel and transforms. As his miasma strengthens and increases, Kohaku, Rin, Jaken, and Kirara are forced to leave, giving their masks to Sango and Miroku. As the others exit Naraku's body later, they find themselves over the Bone Eater's well near Kaede's village. Naraku tries to protect himself with a dark barrier, but Kagome pierces the Shikon Jewel with an unusually strong and powerful sacred arrow, dealing him a fatal blow. They learn that his true wish was Kikyo's heart - a wish the Shikon Jewel never granted. As he dies, Naraku is purified and Miroku's Wind Tunnel vanishes. As the group celebrates their victory, a Meido opens behind Kagome and pulls her in along with the well. Kagome finds herself in front of her high school, and begins hanging out with her friends and dating Hojo with no memories of Inuyasha or the others. However, a nagging sense that something is wrong keeps bothering her, and when she touches the Goshinboku, her memories return and the spell is broken. She awakens surrounded by darkness. The Shikon Jewel tells her that she will stay there forever unless she makes a selfish wish to return to her own time. InuYasha uses Meido Zangestuha to jump into the darkness after Kagome. As he battles through the demons of the Shikon Jewel, he yells to Kagome not to make any wishes yet, for if she does, she will forever remain inside the Shikon Jewel, battling demons for an eternity.
