Hime woke up late

Hime just woke up

The episode begins with Hime, who woke up late, rushing to get ready for school as the others were on their way to get her. While she was eating, Pretty Cure Weekly came on, with Masuko Miyo announcing that the Phantom Empire's influence around the world has diminished thanks to the help of the Pretty Cures. As Hime and Ribbon watched, Megumi, Yuko and Iona arrived at the embassy. Hime finished packing and she was ready to go, with Megumi promising to fill the day with happiness.

Mirage is mad at the generals

Meanwhile, at the Phantom Empire, Queen Mirage was angry that their influence was slipping, and she finally had enough of her generals' constant failures and decides to attack the Cures herself. As she prepares to do so, Phantom watches, growing worried about her, not wanting her to get hurt. Just then, Deep Mirror appears and convinces her to give the three of them one more chance to prove themselves, and she gives them one.

Kana wanted to ask Hime for advice

Kana wanted to ask Hime for advice

At school, Hime's classmates ask for her fashion advice to Kana, who is going on a date. She was very happy that they asked her and makes sure that she will do her best. Meanwhile, Megumi shows that she has become more focused on her studies, and Hime says it was because she followed Blue's advice to focus on her life as much as she would on saving the world, imitating him in the process. Next, the Cures go to cooking class, with Yuko preparing a delicious hamburger steak. She loved seeing the smiles on everyone's faces as they ate.

Megumi teased Iona

At the end of the day, as they all headed home, Iona stopped to talk to Yuya and give him his book back, which she had finished reading. He then gives another book, the second half of that story, to her before he leaves. The other three watched and teased her a bit to her annoyance.

Hime hugs her friends

Hime hugs her friends

In the embassy, Hime talked about how she hated holiday time because she does not get to see her friends at school. She had met a lot of people and experienced some fun times since she became friends with the other Cures, and she would love to tell her parents about them. Then, one by one, Megumi, Yuko and Iona arrived. Megumi wanted to check up on her, Yuko was sending extra food from her lunch store and Iona wanted to know if she wanted to train. Hime then hugged them all and Yuko suggested they should have a picnic, and they all agreed.

At the Phantom Empire, the Oresky Trio were on top of the castle, with Hosshiwa worried about them getting punished if they fail Queen Mirage again. Namakelder was picking petals off a flower to see if he should continue to laze around. Oresky, however, decides that they should all attack Pikarigaoka at once.

The Cures enjoying their day

The Cures have a picnic

Dressing up with the Cute PreCards, the Cures set off to find a good picnic spot. Along the way, two little girls complimented their outfits and offered them some flowers, which they accepted. Once they found a spot, they relaxed and were happy to enjoy the day and to relax every once in a while. However, the relaxation did not last long, as Oresky Trio got ready to attack. All three combined their powers to turn everyone in the park into Saiarks, hoping to impress Queen Mirage enough. Angered that their holiday was interrupted, the Cures transformed and immediately started to fight the Saiarks. Using many different attacks and form changes, the Cures were able to overpower a lot of them. When faced against a bigger Saiark, the Cures split up, with Lovely defending herself while the others continued to defeat the smaller ones.

As they battled, Blue watched and was amazed at how much stronger the Cures have gotten and how they have gone through a lot of hardships. Lovely even flew above the Earth's surface to attack one of the Saiarks. The trio were angry because of the Cures' strength. Asked why they gained so much strength, Lovely says that they want to protect everyone's happiness and will continue to get stronger. The trio express their dislike of happiness and their preference of misfortune over that, but Lovely said these misfortunes will not turn to happiness. Then, desperate to win, the trio ordered the remaining Saiarks to combine into one giant Saiark, but that still was not enough, with the Cures changing into their Innocent Forms and using Innocent Purification to defeat it and nearly purify the trio, who teleported away before they became good.

Once the park returned to normal, the Cures continued to enjoy their holiday, lying on the grass and wishing these days would last forever.

Mirage orders Phantom to come with her as she became enshrouded in darkness.
