The opening for this episode shows brief scenes from EosD.

The episode truthfully follows the events from Perfect Cherry Blossom. Spring has come to Gensokyo, but the Hakurei Shrine is still covered in snow. Reimu has become too lazy to solve the incident for some reason, so Marisa decides to solve the incident herself, thus becoming the main character. However, the episode skips most of the battle scenes.

Marisa first faces Letty Whiterock, easily defeating her. Later on, all the characters who originally serve as bosses, such as Chen, Alice Margatroid and Lily White are shown in short cameos. Marisa then finds the black hole entrance to Hakugyokurou, surrounded by the Prismriver Sisters, just passing by them.

Marisa goes up in what it seems an infinite staircase, only to encounter Youmu Konpaku at the end. When Youmu is defeated, Yuyuko Saigyouji shows up, and the final battle begins.

Just right after the events of SA, the Moriya Shrine holds a party where almost all characters are included. Main characters then read an article on Aya's Newspaper about the Scarlest Mist Incident, which happened during Embodiment of Scarlet Devil. Remilia feels nostalgic and Sanae wants to know how Reimu solved this incident. Marisa and Sakuya then decide to tell the story.

The rest of the episode is focused on the events of EoSD, however, the plot is different in several things, such as Aya telling Marisa to gather information from Scarlet Devil Mansion, or Marisa directly battling against Flandre, and Patchouli afterwards.

According to one of Patchouli's dialogues, Reimu is inside SDM at the same time she's battling against Marisa. After the credits, Manpuku Jinja announces Reimu will battle Sakuya and Meiling in the third episode.

The party continues at the Moriya Shrine, and as everyone keeps getting drunk, Reimu is convinced to tell her part of the story of the Scarlet Mist Incident.

She quickly arrived to the Scarlet Devil Mansion, easily defeating Rumia and Meiling in the way. When she enters the Mansion, she encounters Sakuya, who demonstrates to be a strong enemy using her abilities of time control, but Reimu still found the way to defeat her.

As Marisa keeps battling Patchouli, Flandre, who is still caged in a water prison, remembers all the times she has been left aside by her older sister. When Patchouli is defeated, Marisa convinces Flandre to confront Remilia along with her.

Flandre gathers enough courage to talk back to her sister, and summons a fire sword (possibly Laevateinn). Remilia turns to her little sister and accepts her challenge.
