Starrk shows no sign of getting serious in his battle against Love and Rose. Running out of patience, Lilinette begins to mindlessly fire at the two Visoreds without Starrkâs permission. But her attacks prove to be ineffective against the two, and she is gradually cornered by the pairâs fine team play. Finally, Love hits Starrk with his Zanpakuto attack, and the Espada is thrown into a sea of flames. While the duel between Harribel, the Visoreds and Hitsugaya continues, Starrk summons a pack of wolves, made from parts of his and Lillinette's souls, which explode on impact. When his victory seems assured, Starrk is unexpectedly stabbed in the back.
