According to Doranbolt, he saw Zeref himself and he believed he heard him say "Acnologia". The very name while didn't shook Samuel as he's not aware of the name despite being a hunter, Lahar was visible shaken in fear and asked Doranbolt to make sure he heard it right.

After Samuel was able to return back to Earth Land, he went to report to the Magic Council on his situation within the seven years of his disappearance and informed them on the undead Skeleton Lord threat. While the Chairman confirmed and understood the situation, he has another task for Samuel to undertake. In recent months major churches has been targeted and destroyed throughout Fiore and the Custody Enforcement Unit hasn't been able to locate nor apprehend the culprit behind the attacks. With the reputation of both the Enforcement Unit and the Council at stake, they hired him to assist with Lahar to investigate. Samuel having no choice but to agree, went to prepare himself as he met with Lahar to discuss their plan of action.
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 Maria refused to wish to die in the church if her fate is sealed here, giving some shock to Samuel on her convictions to stay. 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. Soon after Maria cried out as he Samuel turned to face her with Angel having killed her with an unique dagger. Cobra commented on this is his lucky day to encounter the hunter Samuel and Angel soon compliment him by saying he's the most handsome knight around here and that is worth 10 angel coins, a cost of 100 to summon forth Raguel. Cobra then went to strike against Samuel as he turned to block but soon struck by Raguel's Sound Magic that almost made him go deaf as Cobra used his Poison Dragon Slayer Magic roar to send him outside the Church. Angel then noted 40 coins for the attractive men of the knights as they began to charge into the church and summoned the Hammer Angel and both she and Cobra engulfed the church in flames and defeated the knights. 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. He was able to clear his mind and got hits on Cobra but in the end, he was taken down due to prior engagements weakened him considerably and failed to save the Celestial Wizard as the Anti-Link did its job and the curse taking hold. 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. Soon after Porlyusica appeared and informed them that they gotten Magic Deficiency Disease as Wendy explained an unusual creature attacked. 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 next 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.
