Sword Art Online Season 3 Summary
With 30,000 American players having dived into the Underworld, they begin to slaughter everyone from both armies relentlessly. Asuna, Alice, Bercouli, Renly, and Sheyta work to combat the American players. Vecta spots Alice and commandeers a Dark Knight’s dragon and flies towards her. Meanwhile, Iskahn is infuriated with the sight of his guild being mercilessly slaughtered as soon as they finished crawling across the ravine. With the seal in his right eye being triggered, he grabs the eye, rips it out, and destroys it. With a fit a burning rage and determination, he jumps across the ravine.
Iskahn makes a deal with Asuna to fight with the humans if she builds a bridge for his guild to cross. As Alice pulls ahead of the rest of the knights, she suddenly finds herself in a dark void and loses consciousness. Vecta’s dragon grabs Alice and flies off towards the World’s End Altar, with Bercouli giving chase. While the Pugilists and the Dark Knights remain to fight off the Americans, the decoy force pursues after Vecta.
Back in the real world, Critter prepares to deploy another 20,000 American players to surround the decoy force. Vassago decides to dive in again on a “special” account. Back in the Underworld, the Americans spawn around the decoy force, with Sinon appearing shortly after and annihilating almost all of them.
