"Act 34 Infinity 8 "Infinite Labyrinth" 1" is the 9th episode of the 3rd season and the 35th episode of the Sailor Moon Crystal.
With Chibiusa on the verge of death, and Hotaru being completely taken over by the enemy, Sailor Uranus, Sailor Neptune and Sailor Pluto part from the group to annihilate Mistress 9 once and for all, even it means destroying both Hotaru and the spirit of Sailor Saturn in the process.
While Mamoru stays behind to keep Chibiusa's body alive by linking his life-force energy, Super Sailor Moon and the four Inner Guardians enter the heart of Mugen Academy, but end up getting separated in an endless labyrinth; where each resurrected member of Witches 5 pick them off; one by one.
At the hospital, Usagi, Mamoru, and the others all watch worriedly as the doctor says that Chibiusa's heart has stopped. Usagi is shocked that her dearest one had been killed by a fellow Sailor Guardian. Haruka, Michiru, and Setsuna arrive, stating that things have occurred in a way they never expected-the three talismans have not activated, therefore the spirit of Sailor Saturn has not awakened-and that the only way to save Chibiusa now is to destroy Hotaru, as she now their greatest enemy.
Usagi wonders if there is another way, but realizes that the only way to save Chibiusa is to destroy Hotaru because she must not wake up as Sailor Saturn. Mamoru then decides to link up his life-force to Chibiusa and proceeds to do so. He kisses Usagi, and both then receive the vision of Mamoru standing in front of the shadowed Messiah.
The Inner Sailor Guardians arrive at Mugen Academy and are ambushed by the newly revived Witches 5. The Witches 5 capture the Inner Sailor Guardians, using their desires to make them tranquil and quit being a Sailor Guardian. Sailor Moon escapes the hallucination with the help of Mamoru and uses Moon Spiral Heart Attack. Sailor Moon makes it to the lobby and struggles to fight all the members of the Witches 5. The three Outer Sailor Guardians break into the Academy, destroy the Witches 5 and release the four Inner Sailor Senshi. They confess they came to help them because they are all Sailor Guardians. With their united strength, the Holy Grail appears yet again and evolves Sailor Moon into Super Sailor Moon. They soon split up in two groups - Sailors Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and Venus go off to the basement - and Super Sailor Moon with Sailors' Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto to find Hotaru.
