Wallace stares in frustrated bafflement as Ruby traps Sapphire in the aircar, joins forces with Marge, and advances on Kyogre and Groudon. Steven makes Wallace focus on the situation at hand: because they and the Elite Four are using the Regis to contain the energy unleashed by Kyogre and Groudon's battle, the energy has nowhere to go but up—and is taking Sootopolis with it.
Meanwhile, Ruby is experiencing doubts, thinking about Sapphire and wondering whether he did the right thing. He recalls finding Marge on Mirage Island, where she told him that the battle had gone way out of hand and she wants to help him stop it. Ruby accepted her offer because he didn't want Sapphire to risk herself.
In the present, he hands Marge a Jewel, and they prepare to use them.
