Synopsis


Asriel, with the power of seven human souls, fights a HATE-possessed Chara in a final showdown.

Plot


Sans is seen at the beginning of the episode, waking up near Papyrus and noticing the giant HATE ball surrounding Asriel and Chara.


Inside the HATE ball, Chara talks to Asriel and shames Frisk for their actions as well as their denial of responsibility. Chara states the origin of the glitches and how Frisk is the true villain. He then explains that due to the circumstances under which Asriel had obtained Frisk's soul, using his soul to shatter the barrier would kill his consciousness along with it. Chara, enhanced with his HATE and Determination's immense power, creates the ERASE button, a button permanently erasing the timeline. However, Chara is unable to press the button himself and requires someone else to. Chara asks Asriel to press it for him, but Asriel replies that, like everyone else, Frisk deserves a second chance. Asriel uses a lightning attack to destroy the ERASE button and begins to battle Chara.


However, after fighting for a while, Asriel notices that, just like himself, Chara is wearing one of the two heart lockets that they had made each other when they were younger. He apologizes to Frisk as his emotions make him incapable of fighting his brother, but realizes that he may be able save Chara. In response to Asriel pointing out the heart lockets, Chara destroys his to prove that he doesn't care for it, but this is proven untrue when he begins to cry instead.


Asriel begins to use power from the other human souls to fight Chara, causing positive memories from both of their pasts to flow through his mind. Asriel then transforms into his child form and tries to remind Chara about why he cares about everything. Chara tries to resist, but Asriel hugs Chara, breaking them free of the HATE's control. However, due to the HATE holding the Determination that was sustaining Chara's existence now being gone, Chara begins to die again. Asriel begs Chara to not disappear, but to no avail. However, before Chara leaves, they give Asriel their empty soul to act as a soul vessel for the other fragments of the seven souls. This allows Asriel to let all the other human souls, including Frisk's, go free after destroying the barrier. Frisk's soul returns to his body, and the six souls soon shatter, moving on to the afterlife and finally being at peace.


Asriel returns to his family, and the monsters, with Frisk, go to the surface to begin their new lives. However, on top of Sans not being oblivious to the existence of multiple timelines, he can now also clearly remember them all due to a glitch. He asks Frisk how long it will be until he uses the RESET again. Frisk tries to assure him that he won't, but Sans doesn't believe him and only asks that he warns before he does. To prove to Sans that he will not use it ever again, Frisk destroys the button and states his intentions to only move forward. This convinces Sans that they truly are friends and that he can move forward too.

Trivia


  • Breaking the RESET also allowed Frisk to go to the surface with the rest of monsterkind.
