Gilbert reports that Imperial forces are gathering at Fort Merceus, commanded personally by Edelgard. The group decides to request reinforcements from House Charon and attempt to ally with Leicester. As the Faerghus army prepares to confront Adrestia at Gronder Field, Rodrigue discusses the Tragedy of Duscur with Gilbert and reveals that there was no evidence that Dimitri's stepmother Patricia was killed in the event. While Gilbert believes she was captured alive, Rodrigue speculates she may have had a hand in orchestrating the massacre. An allied soldier reports that the Kingdom messenger to Leicester was brutally murdered, and Byleth and Dimitri speculate that the Empire may have sabotaged their request for aid.
The next day, the Kingdom army marches to Gronder Field and confronts the Imperial and Alliance forces. A massive three-way battle ensues that will eventually come to be known as the Battle at Gronder, and Faerghus emerges victorious. As Edelgard escapes, Fleche appears and attempts to attack Dimitri. Rodrigue jumps in the way of her attack and is mortally wounded, giving Byleth the opening they need to kill her. Rodrigue asks Dimitri to find a reason to live before dying in his arms, much to the latter's horror. Afterwards, a broken Dimitri attempts to set off for Enbarr on his lonesome, but is stopped by Byleth. Byleth asks Dimitri to forgive himself for his actions up to this point.
Claude and Byleth successfully raise support from the other lords of the Alliance, and make plans to march for Enbarr in the coming month. Judith also reports that an unidentified army flying House Blaiddyd's banner is moving through Alliance territory and is heading east around Myrddin. At the end of the month, the Alliance army moves out and confronts the Imperial army at Gronder field, commanded personally by Edelgard; the Blaiddyd army also arrives under the command of a surviving, deranged, and vengeful Dimitri. A massive three-way battle ensues that will eventually come to be known as the Battle at Gronder, and Leicester emerges victorious.
After the battle, Hilda reports that Dimitri was killed by Imperial forces in a mad attempt to pursue the retreating Edelgard. She and Claude lament his death and wonder what happened to turn him into the madman he became. Elsewhere, a distraught and enraged Dedue swears to kill Edelgard in Dimitri's name. The Leicester army retreats to Myrddin, where Lysithea explains that she noticed strange mages dressed in black among the Imperial army. She recounts that House Ordelia was involved in a failed rebellion in the Empire 13 years ago; everyone involved was put to the sword, and those same mages in black took control of House Ordelia. They performed inhumane experiments on the children of House Ordelia, of which Lysithea was the only survivor; Claude connects this to Flayn's kidnapping five years prior. Claude resolves to find out the truth of these mages in black and begins preparations to push forward to Enbarr.
