- Main article: The Impregnable Fortress (Silver Snow)/Script
A Church soldier reports that Imperial, Kingdom, and Alliance forces had a massive battle at Gronder Field; Edelgard was badly injured and forced to retreat to Enbarr, Dimitri is dead, and Claude is missing. Despite his shock at these events, Seteth elects to take advantage of the damage done to the Imperial army to launch the Resistance's own invasion of Adrestia, using Fort Merceus as a foothold. Flayn also notes that Faerghus and Leicester are likely in disarray due to the loss of their leaders, and Seteth notes that Byleth will have to unite them under one union. Afterwards, Byleth wanders outside the monastery and seemingly encounters Dimitri, who laments his own actions up to this point. Seteth appears, berates Byleth for falling asleep in such a place, and denies seeing Dimitri.
At the end of the month, the Resistance infiltrates Fort Merceus using stolen Imperial uniforms. They conquer the fortress and defeat the fortress' commander, the Death Knight, who beckons them to pursue him as he escapes. He warns the Resistance to flee before they are all killed and escapes just as modern-day ballistic missiles obliterate Fort Merceus. The shocked and demoralized Resistance forces retreat to Myrddin, where Byleth and Seteth decide to infiltrate Enbarr and gamble everything on an all-or-nothing attack on the palace.

- The story skips over April in the in-game calendar, meaning Ferdinand's birthday is not observed by the player in Silver Snow Part II.
- Unlike Verdant Wind's version of this chapter, the player has one deployment slot less and doesn't get the almyran reinforcements Claude summons at the start.
