This is the 35th episode of the Legend of Sapphire series.
When a deadly basilisk begins to attack the people of Beach City, it is up to Onyx and Amethyst to save the town.
The episode starts off with Amethyst and Onyx on the beach preparing to spar with each other using their dark magic. They began to spar and Onyx starts off by firing waves of dark magic which Amethyst used a shadow wall to protect herself from the attack. Amethyst then jumped high into the air and blasted multiple rays of nightmares at Onyx but with blinding speeds he managed to dodge that rays and with the last one Amethyst fired he redirected it to Amethyst which which hit Amethyst casuing her to fall to the ground and begins to have horrible nightmares. Onyx walked up to her and kissed her on her head which took away the nightmares that he gave her from redirecting the ray of nightmares at her. She woke up and stood back up and then looked to Onyx blushing slightly. Onyx then kneeled down slightly and amethyst begins to get closer to Onyx blushing slightly. She slowly leans in about kiss Amethyst but before she could Purple Topaz and Carnelian throw multiple water balloons at both Amethyst and Onyx getting Amethyst a little agitated with their prank they did. Onyx kept a level head and fired two rays of nightmares at both Purple Topaz and Carnelian which Purple Topaz managed to dodge but Carnelian got hit directly making him fall to sleep begining to make him have horrifying nightmares. After that Purple Topaz ran back into the house to avoid any more attacks from Onyx and both Onyx and Amethyst shared their kiss they wanted to do. Amethyst wrapped her arms around Onyx fully embracing their love and Onyx did the same with Amethyst. But before they could continue, they see Connie running down the beach looking scared for some reason. Both Amethyst and Onyx pulled away from their kiss and looked to Connie to see what was wrong. Connie tried to catch her breath and Onyx then asked what was wrong which she couldn't say since she was still trying to catch her breath. She managed to finally get a grip and then told Onyx and Amethyst that there was something attacking Beach City. Onyx asked if she knew what it was but she had no idea since it didn't look like anything she has ever seen before. Onyx told Amethyst to get Sapphire, Sub-Zero, Emerald, and Gaia for battle and Amethyst quickly ran into the house to find them. Onyx asked what the creature Connie was talking about was doing and Connie told him that the creature somehow is killing people just by looking at them which shocked Onyx since he has never heard of a creature doing that.
Onyx then asked where exactly is the creature in Beach City and Connie told him that the creature was heading to the town hall. He knew that they needed to stop the creature but he didn't know how exactly they were going to kill a creature like this. Amethyst came outside and brought out Sapphire, Emerald, Gaia, and Sub-Zero then asked what they were dealing with. Onyx told Amethyst that he didn't know what the creature was exactly but he knew that it was able to kill by looking someone in the eye. Amethyst got scared from hearing this and held onto Onyx tightly and Onyx tried to comfort her. Amethyst was scared about the creature not because she could die but because Onyx could in this fight. However Onyx wasn't scared and told amethyst that he would not let anything bad happen to her which made her look up at him and blush in a dark purple. Sapphire then asked Onyx what the plan was to take down the creature and Onyx quickly got a plan in order to save the town. He said that he wanted Sapphire and Sub-Zero to look for any signs of people and to get them to safety. He then told Emerald to ride Gaia into the sky and see if he could find were the creature was and then said that he and Amethyst would take the creature down. They all agreed to this and Onyx warned this would be one of their most dangerous missions yet so they all had to be on their guard. They then walked to Beach City to see what was going on and on the ground were many bodies of people. Amethyst held onto Onyx's arm and asked if they were dead. he went to check the body and said that they are not dead but they are not alive. They all were confused by this and Onyx told them that they were under some form of curse that doesn't kill them but makes it so they are not alive. Onyx told Emerald to take to the air and see if he can find the creature then he commamded Sapphire and Sub-Zero to search for anyone that is still out there. They all took their seperate paths and Amethyst stayed close to Onyx as they walked through the town. Suddenly, they heard a blood curdling screech like no other and feel the ground begin to shake under them. Onyx and Amethyst decided to hide in one of the allys which they did and waited to see what was coming. They then saw a massive creature with the head and wings of a roaster, the tail of a serpent, the body and legs of a chicken, and razor sharp teeth on its beak. Amethyst buried herself in Onyx's chest hoping that the creature would stay away and thankfully it continued to walk its path not looking into the allys.
Amethyst was so scared from seeing that creature and even Onyx was frightened by the creature. When it was safe both Amethyst and Onyx tried to find a place to hide so they ran into the city library. They went inside to see if they could find somewhere safe to hide and to see if they could find out about this creature that is attacking. They heard screeches coming from the outside of the walls so they tried to stay away from the windows to avoid detection. Onyx saw a book on the floor that was based on mythology so he took a look to see if he could find anything that could help them. He scrolled through the pages and found a picture similer to the creature outside. Amethyst got close to him so she could read what was inside of the book revealing the creature was a basilisk. The book said that the creature was able to kill by its gaze and that it was equiped with a poisonous breath. This worried the two but they continued reading the book to see if there was a way to stop the basilisk. The book said that the only way to save its victims of its gaze is to take the basilisk's eyes out and crush them restoring all of its victims. Onyx was happy to learn more about the basilisk but Amethyst just picked her nose instead of reading on about the basilisk. Suddenly the ground began to shake and they heard the screech of the basilisk getting even closer and suddenly one of the walls knocked down and the basilisk broke in. Onyx grabbed Amethyst's arm and ran quickly out of the library to escape the basilisk and quickly get out of the library. The basilisk came back out and began to chase down Amethyst and Onyx hoping to get them as his next victim. Thankfully, Onyx was light on his feet and able to easily avoid the attacks from the basilisk and was able to avoid looking at it. Onyx noticed another allyway so he went into it seeing if there was any place to hide. he noticed two people running off so he decided to follow them which turned out to be Lars and Sadie. They were sprinting to the Big Donut hoping that it would be a safe place to hide from the basilisk so Onyx and Amethyst ran with them. They arrived at the Big Donut and Lars and Sadie finally noticed them and let them into the Big Donut to hide. Onyx thanked Lars and Sadie but then began to think of a way to stop the basilisk. Onyx remembered that there was a way to stop the basilisk is destroying the eyes but didn't know how they were going to do that. He began to think trying to find the solution but he could only find one solution. Onyx knew that sometimes sacrifices must be made so he bolted out the door to confront the basilisk in battle without Amethyst.
Onyx cared to much for Amethyst to put her into harm's way so he knew that he had to fight the basilisk on his own. Amethyst tried to chase after Onyx but Onyx was too quick and was able to outrun Amethyst. Onyx arrived near town hall where he noticed mayor Dewey hiding behind one of the pillers of the town hall trying to avoid the basilisk. He ran to Dewey and asked if he was alright and mayor Dewey told him that he was worried about the creature attacking so Onyx told him to hide inside town hall while he would take care of the creature. Dewey ran inside the town hall and locked the doors for good measure to avoid the creature. Suddenly, the ground began to shake slightly and the basilisk let out a loud horrifying screech. Onyx shut his eyes knowing what power the basilisk had and decided to fight using his ears instead. The basilisk walked up to city hall about to breath his poisonous breath but Onyx sensed the danger and moved away from the basilisk's firing range. The creature blasted his poisonous breath but Onyx was too quick to get hit and dodges his attacks still keeping his eyes shut. the basilisk then used his claws to try to attack Onyx but just like with his breath Onyx was able to sense it and avoided the attacks form the basilisk. The basilisk grew furious and used its long snake like tail to wrap around Onyx then lifted him to the basilisk's face. Amethyst arrived by town hall and noticed that Onyx was entangled in the basilisk's tail so Amethyst knew she had to do something to save her boyfriend. The basilisk began to speak telepathically saying to Onyx that he should open his eyes and accept his destiny. Onyx still locked his eyes shut to avoid those dreaded eyes that would kill him so the basilisk began to squeeze even tighter. Amethyst noticed that there was two knives on the ground and had an idea on how to save Onyx from the basilisk's wrath. the basilisk grew tired of Onyx's refusal and telepathically told him that there was no point in resisting since his girlfriend was dead. Onyx was shocked to hear this but he said that he was lying to him. The basilisk then telepathically said that he killed her with his gaze and that Onyx should just open his eyes to take away the heart. Onyx was heartbroken by this and decided to open his eyes since he would rather die than to live in a world without Amethyst. He slowly opened his eyes facing the dreaded yellow eyes of the basilisk and soon his body seemed lifeless as the basilisk threw his body to the ground. Amethyst saw this and ran as quickly as she could to Onyx seeing what the basilisk had done to him. She cried over his body heart broken that he was dead and the basilisk let out a roar in his triumph. Amethyst was enraged by what the basilisk did to Onyx so she locked her eyes tight and jumped up at the basilisk's face. She then drove both of the blade of the knifes into the basilisk's eyes making it screeching in pain as she yanked the eyes right out of its face. The eyes of the basilisk were stuck on her blades she used so she took them off the blades keeping her eyes shut then dropped them on the ground. She then stomped on them forever destroying the curse of the basilisk and she re-opened her eyes now that she was safe form harm. Spirits of its victims floated out of the remains of his eyes on the ground including Onyx's which returned to his body restoring his life.
Amethyst ran over seeing Onyx's soul going back into his body and saw that he was alive, making her shed tears of joy. As Onyx began to stand up Amethyst hugged Onyx knocking him back onto the ground but hugged her tight in his arms. She said that she thought that she had lost him but Amethyst was just so happy to have Onyx back by her side. They both heard the basilisk screech and look at the creature laying on the ground in pain without his eyes. Onyx saw the pain the creature was in and couldn't just let it suffer like this even if it did kill him. He noticed the time was twilight where his powers was at his most powerful on Earth so using his powers he crafted a pair of dark grey and silver eyes for the basilisk to use without being able to kill like his regular eyes. He approached the creature and quickly, he put it back into the creature's eye sockets allowing the basilisk to see once again. Amethyst held on tight to Onyx's arm worried if the creature would kill them like he did to Onyx but Onyx told Amethyst that the creature won't since these pairs of eyes don't have the curse like the last one. The basilisk got up and looked at Onyx suprised that he would help him and bowed his head down in respect for him. He telepathically said to him that he was greatful that he had helped him and said that he will fight by his side. Onyx looked away slightly and stuck his hand out to see if this was truly a bond or not. The basilisk gently moved his head into his hand forever secruring the bond between beast and gem. Amethyst walked up about to pet it like Onyx did but the basilisk opened its eyes and let out a roar to Amethyst in anger since she was the one that took his eyes out. Onyx however got in its path to Amethyst saying not to harm her which the basilisk obeyed but still was a little edgy about being around Amethyst. Onyx and Amethyst began walking back to the beach house and noticed that the basilisk was following them so they took behind them and noticed that the basilisk was keeping its head down for some reason. Onyx realized what it was doing and hoped on its back and help Amethyst onto the basilisk. It began to ran at great speeds making them arrive back at the beach house in seconds compared to if they had to walk. They got off the basilisk's back and Onyx began to pet him on his side. Amethyst asked what they were going to name the basilisk and Onyx knew the name to give to him. He responded by saying that he would be called T twilight and both Amethyst and T twilight loved the name. They sat on the beach looking at the last stroke of twilight which ends the episode.
