"The Beautiful Goblet" (麗しのゴブレット Uruwashi no Goburetto?) is the eighth episode of the anime series Shakugan no Shana. It describes Margery's defeat and the failure of her plan to kill Lamies.


Margery Daw reaches the place where Lamies is and opens a Fuzetsu. She changes into a werewolf and starts to attack him. He immediately escapes from her but she continues her attack. Suddenly, one of Margery's transformed hands has been cut off by Shana. She was shocked to see Shana arriving at the location so fast.

After a little talk, they start fighting. Shana gained the upper hand, and Margery feels that it isn't Shana's battle style that has changed from her previous defeat but her level of confidence. She figures out that Yuji is the source of her confidence. She casts a spell to distract Shana and then attacks Yuji but it fails because of the anti-flame ring, Azure. She was then pierced by Shana and reverted to her normal form.


Later, the spell breaks and causes a massive explosion to the area. Both Margery and Yuji are hanging onto the edges of buildings, near falling. Meanwhile, Eita and Keisaku leave Yoda Department Store where they leave the Crystal Altar and the bookmark that Margery gave them behind. When Lamies is leaving, Margery immediately transforms into her werewolf form again and chases after him. Shana, who has saved Yuji from falling by using her sword, immediately asks Yuji to open the anti-flame barrier that was launched by the ring to prevent Margery's attack so she can open her Wings of Crimson and fly to chase after Margery. Margery is again slashed by Shana after she caught up with Lamies. She falls unconscious, remembering her past and how she entered her contract with Marchosias. Marchosias then manifests himself into the world, which will cause an imbalance in the world. Shana then asks Yuji to go with her to stop Marchosias from going berserk. They used Azure to protect themselves from Machosias' attack and were able to stop him by injuring Margery who is asleep and floating in Marchosias' body.

Marchosias' true form.

Margery wakes up. Shana tells her that they will stop her again if they continue to chase after Lamies. Lamies then tells her to stop chasing The Silver and that she will meet him in the future. Lamies fixes the distortion in the city. While saying goodbye to Shana, Yuji and Alastor, Lamies was about to talk about the Reiji Maigo but stops. Yuji also asked Lamies the time taken for him to collect the amount of Power of Existence to recover the battlefield. As he was leaving, Alastor reveals that Lamies is actually Leanan-sidhe, the creator of the Fuzetsu and many other Power of Unrestraint.

Margery was lost and didn't know where to go as she walks on top of a building, but Marchosias spots Eita and Keisaku waiting for them. The next day, Kazumi sees Yuji and Shana walking to school together and wonders about their relationship.
