Kagome has managed to obtain the magical Macguffin (the bowstring of Midoriko), but Naraku has absconded with everyone save Inu Yasha. Koga's shards are in peril, but this could prove Naraku's undoing. Kikyo sees that they have been purified and could destroy Naraku if he consumes them.
When he does contact the shards, his power is diminished slightly allowing a well-timed appearance from Inu Yasha to destroy a demon vortex and open up Naraku's body. The Shikon Jewel is now a glistening, tantalizing target.
Naraku attempts to hide the jewel inside Kikyo, but Kagome and Kikyo turn this plan against him. Instead, they try firing the jewel, now purified with Kikyo's spiritual energy, directly at Naraku. However, the plot god demands that things drag further on. Naraku's demonic energy overcomes Kikyo's energy, and he also taints and absorbs Koga's shards.
