Meanwhile, Shun and Ayden don't trust Ren's story and Ayden returns to Vestal to acquire a book she believes will shed some light on the situtation. Ayden returns to Shun and reveals what she has learned from the book: that Gundalia was the one who invaded Neathia, not the other way around.

Sora confronts Ren and demands the truth from him. She challenges Ren to a battle and if he wins, she will believe him. Linehalt is no match for the combined power of Lex and Nessie and Ren loses.

Ren angrily replies that he never counted on meeting Sora in the first place and that his plan would be much easier had they never met. Sora leaves in tears and Linehalt asks if Ren is going to go after her, but he sadly states that it's best if she probably forget about him.

Sora is later approached by Sid, who tricks her into going to Gundalia with him.
Chapter 7: New Partners
Ayden is worried over Sora's disappearance, to which Shun replies that Sora is a tough girl and will be fine. Fabia, meanwhile, is nervous that the Brawlers do not trust her after being so easily fooled by Ren. Dan assures her that they believe her and are on her side, to which Fabia responds with providing them with the real Akwimos, Hawktor and Coredem from which their digital clones are derived. It doesn't take long for them to be put into action as Dan and Shun and Marucho and Jake battle Ren's team and two brainwashed kids. As Fabia and Ayden try to determine what Ren is up to, he begins tampering with Bakugan Interspace. During that time, he makes an effort to find Sora, seeing that she is still online, but is visibly nervous when he cannot find her, to which Lena hints that Sid may know of her disappearance.

Chapter 9: Helping Sora
Ren travels to Gundalia and manages to find Sora, but meets resistance in rescuing her from her two Guardian Bakugan: Lex and Nessie, who had previously broken free from the hypnosis. Lex is reluctant to accept help from Ren, as he already caused Sora so much pain and trouble, but Nessie convinces him to let Ren help, as she is certain that Ren still loves her. He manages to escape Gundalia and return Sora to her home. Ren asks Lex and Nessie not to tell Sora that he was the one who rescued her.

Fabia wishes him luck as he leaves.

Just as Shun arrives on Gundalia, Kazarina brainwashes Ayden and forces her to fight Shun using a Battle Vehicle prototype.

Chapter 17: Mjolnir Breaker
Shun and Azreal do their best against a brainwashed Ayden, who is far more ruthless as a result of the hypnosis. Azreal notices that Ayden seems to recognize her Dragon Meteor Storm attack, and tells Shun to focus on breaking through to her while he deals with the Battle Vehicle. However, Azreal is struggling and suggests the use of Battle Gear. Shun is confused, as he knows Azreal does not possess one, but Azreal surprises him by saying that Keith and Gus had created a special Battle Gear just for him earlier and he and Ayden have been waiting for the perfect moment to test it. His Battle Gear, Mjolnir Breaker, gives them the edge they need to win and Ayden is freed from the hypnosis.

Jake angrily runs off into the woods, only to be followed by Sora. Ren finds Jesse and asks him to come back, but Jesse responds with quotes and remarks that he doesn't think Ren is being honest with him or even himself.

Ren brushes her off, saying she doesn't need to worry. However, Contestir convinces her that in order to stay alive, Zenet must prove her usefulness. So, she pretends to be Ren on Gill's ship and asks for a second chance. While on Neathia, Gill attempts to scan the interface of the protective shields, but Zenet fails to hold off Shun and loses.

Dan shouts at Ren, asking why he continues to fight for Barodius when he clearly enjoyed being their friend more. Ren remarks that he doesn't have to explain anything to Dan and that he is a Gundalian, to which Dan adds that he is also a Brawler. Sora overhears this conversation and remains even more conflicted about her feelings for him. Sid and Rubanoid suddenly arrive in battle, and Ren is happy to hear that his other friends are actually alive and not dead like he originally thought. To even things out, Sora joins in the battle as well, leaving Ren wondering if she overheard his conversation with Dan.

Chapter 24: The Choices We Make
After Sid's death, Ren is more confused than ever and is unsure of what he should do. He meets with Barodius and begins asking questions about why his friends were punished instead of him and about Linehalt's Forbidden Powers. Barodius brushes these questions off, saying that he does not want to hear anymore questions and that Ren must be loyal to him and obey his orders. Once they arrive on Neathia for another attack, Dan tries one last time to reason with Ren, remarking that he once knew someone just like him (Spectra), who served someone he didn't believe in and convinced to join the Brawlers and that he almost gave up on him but didn't because he was the brother of his friend (Mira). Ren does nothing as he continues watching Dharak and Drago battle. However, Ren becomes visibly worried when Sora suddenly appears, knowing that she will get hurt if she challenges Barodius. When Dharak delivers a blow that renders them unconscious, he destroys the second shield with ease. Sora regains consciousness and tries to wake Lex, Drago and Dan, but fails. Barodius then orders Ren to prove his loyalty in return for learning the truth about the Forbidden Powers. Ren and Linehalt appear before Sora, who is shocked by his decision but remarks that he "get it over with."

Ren realizes that he had so much time before to make up his mind and that he must decide what he wants to do now.
Chapter 25: Cause and Effect
Ren finally decides where his true loyalties lie and turns on Barodius, refusing to strike down Sora. Sora, forgetting for a moment that she hated him, hugs Ren in relief, an action that reassures Ren that he made the right choice. Ren and Linehalt ask Dan and Sora not to interfere with their battle against Barodius, to which they reluctantly agree, Sora returning to her former composure and not showing any signs of caring about Ren. However, things get out of hand when Linehalt's Forbidden Powers are suddenly activated and begin ripping Neathia apart. Dragonoid Colossus suddenly appears and stops Linehalt before disappearing into Dan's BakuMeter. Barodius retreats and Ren realizes why he and Linehalt must remain hidden away from the world. Dan and the Brawlers stop him, saying that he just needs to learn how to control his powers and they all share a laugh. However, Fabia and Sora are the only ones who remain unconvinced by Ren's change.
Chapter 26: A Love Lost

Fabia refuses to shut down the shield to let him in while Serena reveals thte reason for Fabia's hate of Gundalians - the death of her fiance Jin at the hands of Kazarina. Meanwhile, Sora finally arrives back at the palace just as Marucho heads out on foot to find Ren. Sora reluctantly agrees to go with him but refuses to talk to Marucho about why she refuses to forgive Ren. Marucho however, remarks that he does know what she's going through because his older sister Sharona went through something similar. When they find Ren, Sora admits to Nessie that she really does want to forgive Ren, but can't bring herself to do it. Just then, the other Brawlers arrive and Fabia offers Ren an wager: if he defeats her in battle, he can join them but if he loses, he must leave Neathian forever.
Chapter 27: Tears of Redemption
Ren and Fabia battle, while Sora reflects on her own feelings. Ayden tries to comfort her, but Sora doesn't want to talk to anybody right now.

In the end, Ren loses the match, but Fabia invites him back into the group anyway, seeing that he truly has changed. After Ren is made a Castle Knight, Sora threatens him that if he gives her any reason to think he's going to betray them, he will be sorry. Linehalt, Nessie and Lex meet and try to find a way to get the two to work things out. While Lex suggests revealing to Sora that Ren rescued her when she was brainwashed, Nessie declines, saying that she always keeps her promises. However, Linehalt remarks that he never made such a promise.
