Takato and Guilmon biomerge to Gallantmon and ride Grani to the D-Reaper. They enter a strange white sphere with red and blue rings rotating around it. Inside Gallantmon and Sakuyamon degenerates back to Takato and Guilmon, and Rika and Renamon who meet up with Henry, and Terriermon. Henry shows them the Red Card Shibumi created to let them fight in the D-Reaper. Ryo and Cyberdramon arrive, and the four Tamers slash the Red Card and head into the D-Reaper. Various agents attempt to stop them, including ADR-04: Bubbles and another ADR-08: Optimizer. Grani is knocked away by one of the agents. Sakuyamon destroys the Optimizer, which causes the cables holding Jeri to be destroyed. She grabs Calumon and hopes that he is okay. Grani has been injured, so Gallantmon tells it to stay behind. Outside a ADR-07: Paratice Head agent destroys a nearby police car. It is destroyed by one of Guardromon's missiles. Before they can continue on, they are stopped by a military chopper. Ai, Mako, and Impmon are on a bus back to Ai and Mako's grandparent's house. Impmon is down on himself, but Ai and Mako tell him he did his best. A D-Power appears making them Impmon's true Tamers, thanks to a passing DigiGnome. Jeri finally realizes what Leomon meant by destiny, and tells the D-Reaper that it should leave humans alone. The D-Reaper only responds by binding her up again. The Megas reach the Mother D-Reaper. A large hole appears nearby. The Monster Makers realize it is a link to the Digital World, and the key to Operation: Doodlebug. From the hole a new creature arises, the Reaper. Gallantmon attacks it, but there is no effect. The Reaper retaliates with one of its sickles. Justimon, MegaGargomon and Sakuyamon all attack in succession. The flames from Sakuyamon's attack reach the Mother D-Reaper causing Jeri to scream. Gallantmon goes after her while the others take on the Reaper. When Gallantmon starts to run up the Mother D-Reaper, a giant pink version of Jeri's head appears and attacks Gallantmon. While he is falling, Grani appears and asks if he wants to fly. Grani and Gallantmon fuse, and Gallantmon mode changes to Gallantmon Crimson Mode. Gallantmon destroys the Jeri head and flies up towards Jeri.

“You can hear me, can’t you? I know you can! I’ve had it with you! You stole my voice and upset my dad and my friends! You even snooped around in my head and messed with my memories! Losing Leomon broke my heart, but I never should’ve let you take the beautiful memory of my friend and turn it into something ugly! It was wrong of me to believe that feeling nothing was better than feeling sad! The sadness was real! It was human! I misunderstood Leomon. He never meant for me to think my life had no meaning. He said we all have our own destiny, and that’s not the same thing! Every one of us has a destiny that’s different, and that’s special. Isn’t that right? Thank you, Leomon. You can’t delete even one of us, without deleting something that the whole world needs! Every one of us has something important to do!"

Jeri’s finally snapped out of her depression.

Grani: "Do you want to fly Gallantmon?"
Gallantmon: "Who are you?"
Grani: "Do you want to fly? I will give you my wings."
Guilmon: "Wings? I could fly?"
Gallantmon: "Grani!"
Grani: "I can no longer move on my own, but I can give you the strength within me. You can have my wings Gallantmon."
Takato: "Grani, you really are a Digimon aren't you?"
Guilmon: "Grani, are you sure?"
Grani: "I am very sure. You are my friends. You talked to me. This is my gift to you."
Takato: "Grani!"
Gallantmon: "A part of you will always be with us, Grani!"

—A heartfelt goodbye to a friend they never got to know.
