After much discussion, Samuel is seen at a church in a unknown town with Fiore knights in defense of the church. As he waited for an attack, he used Archive to survey the area and coordinate the knights. Soon after he walked inside the church and went underground to speak with the priest of the church, a female named Maria Izabela Wiłucka-Kowalska known for her soothing voice and harmonic tender to those she's with. Samuel informed her that she must leave the area as he fears that she's the true intended target, not the church itself.

However he soon heard criers of his knights as he turned to see a Cobra, shocking Samuel as last him he saw him he got arrested.

As the two finished their, Samuel appeared behind Angel as he used his Hunter Skills to strike against her leg then her head which prompted her to be sent flying to a brick pillar. As Angel stood up, Cobra said they're work is done here and must find the "last disciple". Samuel then called out what they mean but Cobra told him to shut mouth and told Angel that she must be found, attacking at random is not a viable strategy. Before Samuel attacked, the angel assault did more harm as he fell to one knee. Angel then said a handsome man shouldn't have such dirt on his body before she and Cobra left, leaving Samuel with the ruined Church.
Samuel is later soon communicating with with Lahar with a lacrima crystal where Lahar was with Doranbolt. Samuel told the two that the attacks is directed not at the church but priests and they referred someone as the "last disciple". Lahar commented that he suspected the church wasn't the main goal as the priests there always died. Lahar soon told Samuel and he and Mest, the name Doranbolt wants to go as is going to a countryside to a church to ask questions. Samuel confirmed and said he'll continue to investigate further as they do that.
After recovery from his two-vs-one fight against Angel and Cobra, he went to use his Archive to find out any other possible churches that'll be hit next. He was able to arrive to an church that has yet to be attacked and asked the Fiore knights on the conditions of the priest. He was told they're relocating him to another location for his safety and Samuel went to go with him as to provide greater defense from anyone who'll attack her. As he moves with her, he introduces to her and will do everything in his power to keep her safe. However one of the knights shouted an enemy spotted, Cobra of the Reborn Oración Seis. Samuel declared to Cobra that he wont even go near the Celestial Wizard as he loads as weapon and aimed at him. Cobra however seem pleased to finally meet the esteemed Samuel Colt, The Merchant of Death known for creating powerful armaments, including some he considered quite horrifying in concept. However despite Samuel's and the knights efforts, Cobra was able to take them. However Samuel while battered stood in front of the Celestial Wizard, ditching his firearms for unarmed combat fully aware of his Hearing Magic.

Cobra seen left, leaving the injured Samuel as Erza, Max and Evergreen appeared to see the carnage. Erza quickly went to Samuel side and asked what happened, informed her that Cobra got the Celestial Wizard and he failed to protect her.
After his confrontation to Cobra, Erza decided to take Samuel back with her to Fairy Tail's second guild to go under medical treatment after fighting Cobra and told him to stay here as he's too injured to continue. However Samuel began to protest, remembering his time in the Tower of Heaven and his powerlessness failed to stop not only the cult itself but Jelall, but Ezra told him that regardless, he was too beaten to continue fighting. In order to stop Samuel knowing how Council enforcers such as Hunters operate, Mirajane casted Sleep Magic on him and forced him to sleep.
Samuel awakened during the final hour of the Infinity Clock being activated and went down stairs to offer assistance. While he is still too injured he can provide help in saving lucy.
After the Infinity Clock was deactivated, Samuel is seen celebrating with the Fairy Tail guild and the Legion Corps as he spoke with the guild's 4th guild master, Merlinus Ambrosius on the topics of future of the guild. Merlin told him they'll be fine and Samuel remembered the guild being one of a kind. After Legion Corps left he decided to depart as well and bid farewell to the guild. However before he left, Erza asked him about Jellal, however he seen told them he was sent to Edolas and stuck for seven whole years before finally returning. While this shocked them Lucy soon asked how was the Edolas Fairy Tail and Samuel smiled, showing their guild mark on his right shoulder, stating his an permanent member.
Samuel is later with Doranbolt and Lahar as they spoke with Org concerning the Interguild Dispute Interdiction Treaty revision, however Org noted that is not Lahar's reasons to his visit, as he suspects he's wish to know on chief members of the Fairy Tail guild. Samuel believes the chairman's choice to make blame on the guild and not Zentopia as an selfish act, but he did not spoke on his opinion as he's just a hunter.
Soon after, the chairman soon had Samuel summoned as he discussed the Grand Magic Games and the possibility of Fairy Tail joining due to their core members returning. the chairman soon asked Samuel to go to the capital city of Crocus and keep a eye on the Fairy Tail guild if they do participate and to stop anything that'll cause issues. While he believes the paranoia of the chairman is out of line, Samuel obeyed and began his travel to Crocus in preparations of the Grand Magic Games.
Grand Magic Games arc
Samuel arrived to Crocus sometime prior to the beginnings of the Grand Magic Games in order to keep a eye on Team Fairy Tail. However as he traversed, he used his Archive to keep track on Fairy Tail's guild members. When he used Archive during the Preliminaries, he noticed both Wendy's and Carla positions is at the castle courtyard, quite confused as according to his knowledge she was part of the magic team. He went to investigate on Wendy and when he arrived, found both Wendy and Carla on the ground unconscious and went to quickly investigate on their overall health with his Archive. When he checked on their magic, he used Archive to contact Warren and explained the fact he found Wendy and Carla in the courtyard. Warren said that both Happy and Lisanna are in the courtyard, so Samuel provided them his coordinates to retrieve their guild members.
When both Happy and Lisanna arrived, the two found Samuel tending to Happy and Carla. He helped them take them both medical wing and the next was present when the Fairy Tail guild was told on the conditions between the two. Erza soon asked Samuel if he knows the perpetrator but he doesn't know, however he vowed to look into the matter and keep a eye on any suspicious individuals and when he does, shall contact her.

Samuel vowed to the guild he'll locate and apprehend the culprit, believing it to be an mage of one of the guilds to hinder the guild in the games. Erza thanked him and asked if he found anything to tell her, and he well. He also said that he'll keep a eye on Wendy and Carla with his Archive, believing that she might be attacked again regardless of her condition.
Samuel was present as the announcer proclaimed the eight teams that past the preliminaries. However when Raven Tail made its appearance, he got confused on their appearance as an dark guild. As the announcers read on their file and explained on how they became a legitimatized guild, he got suspicious on that and how they got it. Samuel soon put the two together that they were the likely perpetrators on Wendy and Carla due to their relationships between Fairy Tail and Raven Tail.
Samuel watched as the Hidden round of the games was going but only thought upon the efforts of the mages inside. As soon the Hidden round ended for the combat round between Corona and Lucy, he raised his guard as he watches the battle closely. He believes Raven Tail might be planning something due to their act on Wendy and Carla. He seen perked upon Lucy attempting to shout to her friends before Corona's hair silenced her, making him think there is something else in play. As the battle unfold he studied Corona before it finally hit him, noticing one of her hair trails hadn't move since and her with it and looked towards the stand, using his weapon's scope to see Corona's hair near Asuka. Using his telepathy's Archive and communicate with Natsu on the situation, who was able to make it in time remove Corona's hair away from Asuka and allowing Lucy to finally battle.
However Samuel then had an angered look in his eyes upon Lucy's defeat, easily sensing an third-party got involved and nullified the Urano Metria spell she was casting. After Lucy got sent to the medical room, he went to talk to the guild master Makarov while Mavis was present without knowledge due to not having the Fairy Tail brand and wish to work more closely with the guild to protect members from any outside harm. Makarov agreed with Mavis and assigned Bisca with him to scout out and keep a much closer eye on Raven Tail. He also went to tell them he was assigned by the chairman to report any activity done by the guild in order to attempt to disband them, but he wish not to do so as he enjoys the guild's ever timing presence. While Makarov suspected at that, he was pleased to see Samuel being supportive to the guild and began to think he could become a member due to his dedication. However Makarov told him to not act against Raven Tail until they brought themselves to the public on purpose, which Makarov believed they will mess up at some point.
In the same day, Samuel was simply overseeing the entire arena until his Archive opt in and identified Wendy and Carla once again moving but it was shown they weren't awakened and prompted him into action. He soon landed in front of three armoured figures carrying not only Wendy and Carla but the guild's medical advisor Porlyusica. The four were flabbergasted on how they got caught as one of them pulled out two magical revolvers and acted cocky in front of them. Before they all reacted, Samuel swifted in and used his unarmed martial arts to knock them all one by one as he safely got the three. Soon after Natsu ran towards him, having caught their scent prior. Natsu thanked him on saving the three as Samuel raised his hand to not worry. Soon after Samuel had three kidnappers tried and escorted as he used his Archive to contact Natsu's guild members on the situation and told him to be careful as he left with the kidnappers. He took them to the Fiore army and stayed with in order to obtain information, obtaining the fact Raven Tail hired them. As he was leaving, he was suspicious on the royal guard as he noticed the actions of Raven Tail doesn't seemed to been punished in anyway.
Later that night Samuel was contacted by Erza and Mystogan to discuss matters and had him involved with concerning of strange magic power. Samuel asked the two why get him involved, and Mystogan, who was actually Jellal Fernandes commented on his efforts from the time of Edolas and the Infinity Clock incidents and found him a useful ally when it comes to internal affairs of Crocus as an Council Hunter. He understood and gladly accept to help. He was told on Zeref and the presence of his magic, which prompted deep thinking. When Jellal mentioned that he should've sensed in the years, Erza quickly explained Samuel wouldn't had due to him being sent to Edolas prior to the Grand Magic Games creation and only arrived sometime before they were released from Fairy Sphere.
In the third day, Bisca contacted Samuel to assist her in keeping a eye on Raven Tail as Laxus' match against Alexie was about to begin. He obliged to the request and is seen above the arena across from Bisca's position as he kept on eye on Alexie, kept in contact with Warren's telepathy. He informed that Alexie is not performing any magic throughout the fight and soon enough soon tell them there is no worry. However eventually the truth was revealed as the real Laxus emerged as Alexie hit the arena's wall, along with the other members of the Raven Tail guild. Shocking him, he quickly leaped down to the arena as the match was called and Raven Tail's master being Alexie all along, disqualifying them as the members participated illegally as well. Samuel walked besides Laxus and towards Ivan and arrested him. Assisted by the fiore knights, before he could be taken away Ivan spoke to his son on the Lumen Histoire but he told Ivan to shut as he was taken away.
Soon after arresting them and taking them to the fiore knight's HQ, Samuel is later seen speaking with Makarov on the situation with Ivan, telling them due to their actions the guild was disbanded when he reported it back to the Council.
Sometime during the battle between Wendy and Sherria, Samuel was seen walking around the arena halls with people crowded in the way, using his Archive to sense the magic presence of "Zeref" within the grand magic games. Soon enough it began to move towards the exit as he began to rush to its location. However he noticed Mystogan being confronted by Doranbolt and decided to quickly sort that out, since having Jellal reveal himself will ruin the plan they laid out, with Lahar soon arriving with a small squad of rune knights, now in a dire situation. Doranbolt soon removed his mask, revealing to be Jellal and before the rune knight acted, Samuel appeared to stop their advances. Lahar questions Samuel and the hunter explained this is why he ways the mask, due to being a look a like. Soon after Yajima appeared and explained on Edolas and that Mystogan is from that, counterpart existing. Due to Samuel and Yajima, the situation died down as they leave. Samuel asked if he felt it and Mystogan said yes but now they lost it due to that confrontation.
Having been working nonstop since arriving at Crocus, Samuel decided to take the fourth day of the Grand Magic Games off and simply enjoy watching the games itself, having arrived soon after Pandemonium ended with Cana using Fairy Glitter on the MPF. He's watching preparations of the Naval Battle against the female challengers and the sole male named Rocker, which he thought was ironic at this situation, though was feeling bad for the guy as he was ignored in favour of the women. As he watched the Naval Battle unfold, he got curious with Minerva's magic as a member of Sabertooth, the current strongest guild in Fiore. As he watched, he was shocked to see Mary Jane Kelly as she sat next to him before giving him a bear hug, pleased to see him once again. He asked how she's been and Mary told him that she's a guild master of the Highrise, which surprised him to see his childhood friend in such a position. The two continued to watch the Naval Battle, Mary Jane commented Lucy should be winning due to her Aquarius but was shocked to see the mermaid Celestial Spirit ditch Lucy, making her angered at such a lousy spirit.
As he watched, Samuel saw one by time as the mages leave the Naval Battle until it was only Lucy and Minvera and a growing concern grows inside him, sensed by Mary Jane, who seemed confused on his concern. When Minerva casted her magic Territory on Lucy, he stood in great concern, causing Mary Jane to look at him worriedly as Minvera looks like she was playing with the Lucy. He paid a close attention to the timer that manifested upon Minvera and Lucy being last remaining combatants and vowed to step in if he believes the fight is going out of control. As soon the timer went out, Minvera relentlessly attacked Lucy with Territory and brutally physically harmed the Celestial Wizard, causing Smauel to stared in rage. Mary Jane growing fearfully at Samuel as she sensed an raging anger inside him she never felt before. Arcadios soon declared to stop the match in fear of the Celestial Wizard being killed and the judges halt the match. Minvera soon held Lucy by the head outside of the water sphere before letting go. As soon Minerva let go, Samuel used his Hunter Skill Vanish to and disappeared from the stands and in the air and grabbed Lucy mid air, shocking Natsu and Gray and the onlookers as he landed on the ground. Soon after Wendy and Sherria appeared to use their healing powers on Lucy. Erza soon came along with Juvia in worry. Samuel stood as Minvera landed back on the ground near them as Erza stared in contempt. Minvera soon told them that she complied with the rules and Erza remarked with decency and she arrogantly told them Lucy would've failed without. As both Sabertooth competitors and those of Fairy Tail A began to look like a fight and chanting to arouse from the audience, Samuel stepped between the two. He looked at Fairy Tail before turning his body to Sabertooth, he told the two parties to stand down or else consequences shall arise. Before Sting said anything, Minvera quickly told him not too as she's aware on Samuel abilities, and told her Dragon Slayer he wouldn't be able to take him on a one on one battle. Erza agreed with Samuel but she also warned Sabertooth Minvera that her act on Lucy is a declaration of war on her guild and she will regret before leaving with her team to quickly Lucy for medical treatment along with Sabertooth.
After the Naval Battle, Samuel returned back to the stands with Mary Jane as onlookers stared in awe and wonder as he tiredly sat back next to Mary Jane as she asked what he just done. He explained that, as Hunters, have a particular set of skills only told by mouth alone that only they are allowed to lean. What he used was called Vanish, a skill almost akin to Teleportation Magic or even the more dangerous Speed Magic that involves accelerated speeds. However he told Mary Jane that he's hasn't had enough training to use it effectively and using it once can drain all of his physical strength and stamina. Mary Jane soon said this is his day off and should rest for the entire day and let the organizers to deal with it, and allow the combatant's friends to sort it out. Samuel simply nodded, not saying as he was too tired to speak due to Vanish and simply watched the Tag Battles that came after.
After the events of the fourth day finished, Mary Jane soon forced Samuel to come with to the popular leisure center in Crocus, a massive pool park with slides and other fun swimming activities. As Mary Jane put on her own swimsuit for the park, she was shocked to see Samuel wearing his usual outfit. She asked him he's not serious in swimming in that but he responded that he wont be swimming at all, he's here because she forced him. Not taking no for a answer, Mary Jane soon called out to two big guys from her guild to grab him and take him to the men's changing room where he was forced into swim pants and was pushed out. Mary Jane was flabbergasted to see Samuel's physical physique, being a well toned man with even muscular definition due to his time in the Wild Lands. Mary turned as to hide her red face as Samuel asked if she's alright. She answered that she is and told him to not be so formal as she grabbed his hand and took him to the many things within the pool park.
Later on that night after the pool park, Samuel was invited by Mary Jane to stay with her guild at a inn, however he was contacted by Erza to met her at the Bar Sun to discuss on a internal matter. Upon arrival he was informed on Lucy's arrest by the Royal Army in the palace and asked if he, as hunter hold authority to have her release. Samuel answered that as a hunter he does since it's a Magic Council position, however he did explain he was a Thegn, a noble title that grant special powers equal to that of a prince or princess and can use that to get a audience with the king in the coming morning. Soon after he finished, Makarov informed the guild that Lucy should be considered a hostage until Samuel can rectify the situation, however he briefly use his Titan magic to enlarge his fist to slam on Natsu, who was tied up. Samuel respectfully bid them the night as he went to the inn Mary Jane and her guild are staying at.
The fifth day of the Grand Magic Games begins and Samuel kept to his word to speak with the king on Fairy Tail's behalf, however he was not expecting to meet with the king's daughter, Hisui E. Fiore was there instead and called him as an unjust criminal assisting thieves. Shocking Samuel as he questions the audacity of this proclamation and accusation against him but the princess silenced him as he not only stripped him as an Fiore Thegn but apparently she had contacted the Council even remove him as a Hunter. Before he could even question the princess, a dark void appeared where he stood as fell into the darkened pit below as it shut.
Having landed in an cave system, Samuel wandered about in a attempt to find his way out where he shouting and fighting, he distinctively that shout was from the Fire Dragon Slayer Natsu and rushed towards that direction, eventually coming up towards the Garou Knights fighting Mirajane, Pantherlily, Natsu and Wendy that taken inside a plant. Having lost his weapons due to the fall, he went in as Cosmos from behind and used his palm to strike against her back, surprising her and Cosmos as he attempted to break open the carnivorous plant with his own physical strength as he called out Wendy. As Cosmos mocked Samuel on his efforts, she was taken aback when his he made a fish and slam onto the plant, it went though as he pulled Wendy out and leaping away from it as he held her. Wendy cough as she came too, thanking Samuel for the rescue as he placed her down and was willing to fight alongside her and her friends against the Garou Knights. Yukino soon called out to Samuel and told him to stay with her and Lucy, due to knowing his profile as a sole firearm specialist, while she is fully aware on his hand to hand combat. He disagrees and goes to challenge Kama, the leader of the Garou Knights, who mocked on his sins. Soon after Mirajane used Satan Soul Sitri as Wendy and Natsu prepared to engage. As they began to fight, vines appeared to grab Lucy and Yukino only to be stopped by Pantherlily. Now focused on Kama, Samuel quickly engaged in close-quarters combat as he attempted to disarm him as Kama use one of his Scythes at him, detailing how his not a worthy criminal to face both at once but was shock to see Samuel real back as he held his ground and lifting his leg to kick him into the chin before spinning around to kick him to the side. Kama noted he underestimated the Hunter's acrobatic form wont do so again. However before Samuel reengaged, purple paper stuck to him, paralyzed by Kamika as the others are. Soon after a massive plant emerged from Cosmos as the plant began to suck them in, Mirajane soon called out to Wendy who use a Sky Dragon Slayer spell that counteracted Violet Dance and allowing them all to move once again. Now free, Lucy asked on what to do nest before being devoured by plant, Samuel soon called to Natsu to use his Fire Magic on the plant's throat to destroy it. Natsu performed a Dragon's Roar that soon caused a massive explosion, sending him and others to other places of the underground prison.
Samuel soon awakened and found parts of his upper torso wounded with his clothing ruined, which annoyed him before he torn the entire right sleeve off, with some right shoulder part of the shirt being torn, revealing his right chest. He soon found Lucy on top of Yukino next to Arcadios and went to quickly check their conditions and helping them up. As Lucy and Yukino told their fine and went to help Arcadios, he went to check on both Happy and Carla, even lifting the rock on Happy to check his lower body and was fine just bruised from the rock debris. As Yukino questioned how far they fallen and Happy speaking on the creepiness of the place, Samuel told them they were separated from Natsu's attack and blames him for this. However Lucy soon told him it wasn't his fault it ended as this as anything could happen regardless. He thanked Lucy for the words of comfort as the group began to figure out where and how to reunite with the others. Yukino then said without their gate keys, they wont be able to properly defend themselvs, but Samuel soon told her that he's a able fighter and will defend all of them with his life if they encounter anyone of the Garou Knights. However Carla using Aera told him to not be so reckless, as she can clearly see he's also hurt by the condition of his right side and noticed his lower forearm is actually broken. As Happy began to rally and tell them to move on finding the others, he suddenly began to float and Carla told him to cut it out. However Lucy noticed it's not even his doing since his Aera is not there and Uosuke sitting on top of one of the statue heads who called out he caught a fish, with Happy replying he's not a fish. As the two seem to argue on what fish is, Samuel went on to attack Uosuke and calling his idol chatter as a annoyance as Lucy and Yukino quickly cried for him to stop. Arcadios soon awakened to told Yukino to stop Samuel before it's too late. However it was Samuel later seen sent flying into the ceiling at incredible speeds, on his right arm, breaking it further as he fell to the ground in agony and blood came from his mouth. As Yukino went to support him and take him next to Arcadio, Lucy seemed prepared to fight regardless of her Gate Keys as Samuel passed out due to the intense pain.
Samuel soon awakened once again to find himself being held on by Arcadios and surrounded by lava, and noticed Yukino and Lucy hanging on above the lava. However he soon felt Arcadios hand off him as he delved into shocking, sacrificing himself to save the girls. He was mortified at the pure dedication and willpower of Arcadios to walk through molten lava to save the girls. As he does save him, Arcadios sank below the lava as he believed the world last a truly remarkable man, but the Celestial Spirit Horologium called as he appeared, with Arcadios inside him, saved and protected. As Horologium makes a pun on the situation, Loke or Leo also appeared with the gate keys of both spirits and returned them to their owners as he prepared to engage in combat. Lucy soon asked Leo to get Samuel to them so they'll be together, and he obliged as he leaped to his position before greeting him. Leo grabbed him and took him to Yukino to be cared for. Samuel soon saw the fight the against Lucy and the spirits as he he was soon placed inside a hole made by Virgo that was summoned prior. He also decided to not fight as the many spirits and territory changes is not to likening and seeing Aquarius rage, he decided to not fight. Carla called him smart as it's dumb to get in the way of Aquarius in a foul mood. By efforts of the Lucy and her spirits, the knight Uosuke defeated. Soon after the fight, everyone else soon emerged as Wendy, Natsu, Pantherlily and Mirajane defeated the other members, shocking Samuel on the actual might and hope to someday reach to that level. Of course Yukino offered encouragement as she was aware on his efforts during the Infinity Clock incident. He then saw Natsu questiong Kama on the exit, who promptly told him where.
As he walked to the Abyss Palace, he asked Arcadios on his miraculous survival in lava, which Yukino also wished to know and Leo informed them on the Jade Amulet being the cause and many being impressed by such a feat, with Carla inquiry if Horologium may also helped with his survival. Lucy responded on how the Celestial Spirit has always been known to jump before anything happened, Pantherlily calling him a noble warrior. However Wendy mentioned the word "Jade" and Samuel asked on the meaning of that specific word. Lucy then explained to him how Wendy casted a spell to reawakened a dragon spirit who called himself the Jade Dragon Zirconis, shocking him that Wendy has such a spell in her arsenal. When Yukino found it off that the princess's name, Hisui can be translated to "Jade" as well. Carls then stated that talking to her to get answers and halting the Eclipse is the viable option right now and decide if it's right or wrong. As they chattered on how deep the Abyss Palace is, Natsu began to smell something and Wendy felt air, even Samuel began to sense an exit of some sort. As they got closer the exit, Lucy questioned on how every of the knights named themselves but not their leader, and Pantherlily soon after shouted of a door. However Samuel raised his left hand to halt the group, where Natsu argued what is wrong. Samuel suspected a trap and he shall go in first, but before Yukino protested due to his injury he sprinted forward to the gate stood in front of it. As the rest walked down, Natsu soon told him to move as he prepared to punch the door down until the door itself opened to reveal a hooded figure in front of Samuel, being perplexed as the others as the hooded figure. The figure revealed herself to be Lucy Heartfilla after removing her hood and shocking the group. This Lucy explained she's from a future and a calamity is is nearing but she fainted and collapsed as she give out the warning, caught by Samuel's working left arm. Lucy stood there in shock before as they began to take her and the knocked-out Arcadios out of the Abyss Palace and into the castle, finally out of the underground prison.
As Loke carried Arcadios and Samuel carrying the future Lucy from the Abyss Palance, Loke noted that Arcadios wont last much longer without medical aid. Wendy also told them wind is occurring all directions and made it hard to find a exit to the outside. As Carla complained on not being able to use Warren's telepathy, Samuel suggested using his Archive and he attempted top use its telepathy to make contact. He was able to deduce there's a barrier surrounding them and making it unable to properly form a connection, much to Carla's annoyance. As Yukino apologised of not knowing the layout, they continued to move to find a exit to the outside.
At some point, they found a dining room where Samuel set future Lucy next to Arcadios and began to talk to the group on their situation. While they began to talk on where to go next, Natsu commented on taking out the Fiore knights and Carla disagreeing due to the wounded. Samuel also told Natsu that the royal army are vastly different the regular soldier, having much more combat experience and considered the best among the Fiore army knights, not to be taken lightly, however Natsu stilll believes on taking them out to meet with the princess. Mirajane also noted them that Fairy Tail is still competing and they could be disqualified for taking out the royal army. Soon after future Lucy awakened and explained her entire situation after leaving the Abyss Palace and how she was captured. Samuel asked future Lucy on the Eclipse Gate, and Future Lucy explained the gate is the main reason they failed to escape since it took their magic power. Wendy then asked why came to the past and she began to tremble, Samuel feared the end result if Time Magic was involved to fix the future. Lucy explained how over 10,000 dragons emerged from the Eclipse Gate, the castle destroyed and the entire world as they know it, was brought into calamity and humanity faced extinction.
Samuel then stayed silent as he watches the conversation between the groups before he saw Carla eyes widen in realization, he asked Carla what is the matter before Carla went to ask future Lucy a question on the conditions of themselves in the future. Future Lucy hesitated to answer Carla's question, confirming a suspicion she had on her Vision. Lucy explained how she used the Eclipse Gate to use Time Magic and go the past to save the future. Future Lucy soon explained on Jellal involvement and told the group to meet him at a underground passage and to not be spotted by the cameras. However Samuel said that he wont come, and Natsu questioned this. He told Natsu he is wounded, his lower right arm is broken and will be a hindrance, he'll return back to the guild to inform them on the situation. He decided to leave now, splitting in hopes to quickly return and inform Makarov, and before he left Natsu as well as Lucy and Yukino thanked him for his efforts and he simply waved as he left the group.
