Main article: To War! (Golden Wildfire)/Script

Two years have passed since the Officer's Academy closed its doors. Edelgard, who has taken the Adrestian throne, declares war on the Central Church. Shez has grown impatient after work ran dry in Leicester, but Claude convinces them not to move on by offering them a post in his army in preparation for a potential conflict with the Empire. The former Golden Deer, with the exception of Lorenz, reunite. Claude plans to send his forces to reinforce the Great Bridge of Myrddin on the Alliance-Empire border and stop any potential Imperial invasion.

After their first battle, Claude attempts to gain the support of Count Gloucester, to no avail, and worries that he may defect to the Empire. Lorenz returns and rejoins the Golden Deer. Eventually, the Golden Deer depart for the Great Bridge of Myrddin. Acheron, the viscount in charge of the protection of the bridge, betrays the Alliance and attempts to defect to Adrestia, but is killed by Alliance forces. Despite the Alliance's best efforts, the Bridge falls when Imperial reinforcements led by Ferdinand arrive and Count Gloucester surrenders and swears fealty to the Empire. In the aftermath, Lysithea realizes that House Ordelia will likely follow Gloucester's lead and surrender. When the Golden Deer return home, Claude explains that after the Bridge fell, the Empire conquered Garreg Mach and drove Rhea into exile in Faerghus. He suspects that the Alliance capital of Derdriu will be the Empire's next target and vows to defend it at all costs, for if Derdriu falls then the war is lost. Meanwhile, Rhea arrives in Faerghus and agrees to lend her military aid to the Kingdom while Edelgard and Hubert discuss the state of the western front and agree to leave Leicester in Count Bergliez's hands.
