On the front cover, the Intention of the Abyss is wearing a frilly pale purple and pink dress and kneeling in a pool of blood, crying and covering one of her eyes with the palm of her hand. Four sets of chains inter-cross in front of the Intention, two in an 'X' pattern and two in a 'V'. In the background is one of the couches that the Intention and Alice sat in when they met one another in their junction in Retrace LXXVII: Alice&Oz; however this couch appears to be deteriorating in quality.
The cover of the special edition version of Volume 19 features Oz the B-Rabbit. Oz looks directly in front of him while holding a crimson rabbit with a yellow bow and sticking out his tongue playfully. Oz is wearing a black suit, vest and tie, completing his outfit with a white dress shirt underneath his vest. Finally, the handle of Oz's scythe is shown behind his shoulder, suggesting that he is holding it behind his back. Altogether his attire and the presence of his scythe suggests that his presence on the cover on the special edition of Volume 19 is meant to symbolize Oz coming to the realization that he is actually B-Rabbit.
The truth of the being known as Oz Vessalius is exposed to Pandora, which has been captured by Leo and the Baskervilles. Admist the warped tragedy that plays out mercilessly, the one who has lost everything catches a glimpse of the ridiculous fary tale contrived by one man. The forbidden box has just been opened... What will be found within?
Oz is lying on the ground, thinking of what Jack had told him earlier, how everything he cherished and wanted to protect was fake (see Broken Rabbit). Oz questions whether this is all just a nightmare before assuring himself that it is. The rain was falling over Oz as if it was meant to wash away all of his worries, Oz then wonders if a soul like his, a fake soul, could become dripping wet and cold.
Gil is crying as Oz recalls his past. Gil calls out for Oz, calling him master. Oz asks Gil what the problem was and Gil explains that he had a dream that Oz was no where to be found, and when Gil really woke up, Oz wasn't in his room. Gil trembles and cries, even though Oz asks him not to. Oz then thinks of how ever since Gil had become his servant, he had always been afraid of something. Oz tells Gil that there was no helping it before grabbing his hand and telling Gil to come with him. Gil asks where they were going this late at night, and Oz states that they were going to Oscar's room.
Alice awakens in a chair sitting in the centre of a room with a checkered floor and a spotlight shining down on her. Alice asks where she is. The Intention of the Abyss, who appears in a chair behind Alice, says that it is the junction where their souls meet and interact with one another, before stating that it had been a long time since the two of them spoke like they are. Seeing the Intention's true form for the first time in 100 years, Alice is surprised to see herself in white with white hair. This confuses the Intention, who then realizes that while Alice had no memories, she usually appeared in the form of a white rabbit, so the fact that Alice didn't remember her was understandable.
After revealing herself as Alice the B-Rabbit, Jack is surprised to see Alice before him once again. Alice tells Jack that she could never forgive him for what he had done, ever, drawing Oz's scythe and explaining how she really wanted to dismember Jack where he stands, but admits that there was something more pressing to be taken care now. Alice called out for her sister. The Intention of the Abyss extends her arms and tells Alice that in the end she couldn't accomplish it, but with this she would be able to prevent herself from being able to hurt anyone anymore.
The Intention gives her memories to Alice to destroy.
Alice goes in to destroy the Intention's memories, when suddenly a bright light erupts from the Intention's chest, the Core of the Abyss revealing its true form while speaking through the Intention. The Core tells Alice not to harm the Intention, sending bolts of crackling Abyssal energy shooting off of itself in various directions. Alice is shocked, as is Jack, by the actions of the Core of the Abyss. Suddenly she remembers how her sister had told her that if she was to try and hurt herself, the Core would intervene and prevent such a thing from coming to pass.
Jack, has still not yet responded to Vincent as he lay kneeling on the ground in Alice's room. Vincent tells Jack to hold on while he goes to get help. As Vincent runs off, Jack talks to himself about how Sablier would fall into the Abyss now because of the way things had turned out. Jack becomes frustrated when he thinks about how Lacie's "wish" wasn't going to come true now. In one last act of desperation, Jack calls out for Alice, asking where she was.
Jack finds Oswald's body. Jack descends through Alice's tower, finding Oswald dismembered on the floor when he reaches the main level of the tower. Jack asks Oswald a loud what had happened, noting that he was in pieces, before questioning whether or not it was him who had done this to Oswald.
