"The Words of an Oath" (誓いの言葉 Chikai no Kotoba ) is the twelfth episode of the anime series Shakugan no Shana Final.
Wilhelmina, Rebecca, Khamsin begin a long and hard fight against Sabrac, which is impossible to win. Shana leaves them and meets the Snake of the Festival, who has awakened its true form. Shana promises Yuji to fight him, make him the person he used to be and to live in a perfect world along with him. She has realized that the two personalities of her were not the Flame Haze and the person, but the one who would and the one who would not fight for the dream of a perfect life.
However, both have one thing that assures the chance for this dream to be realized, the most powerful unrestricted spell: Love. Shana says she will use Tenpa Jōsai to kill the God of Creation and the Bal Masqué if the God of Creation were to get rid of Yuji.
