The Ancient Magus' Bride season 2 episode 22, titled Give a thief enough rope and he'll hang himself, saw everyone get expelled from the dreamworld unconscious, except for Philomela. Elsewhere, Lizbeth recalled Adam's birth and began the process of having him resurrected. That's when Philomela reached her location.

Lizbeth planned on using a grimoire and Philomela's blood to summon a god to resurrect Adam. After she summoned the dark figure, Lizbeth restrained Philomela from sacrificing her.

Soon after, Chise and the others became conscious and reached Lizbeth's location. That's when Philomela revealed that she wanted to live. Upon hearing this, Chise destroyed the goddess summoning circle and rescued Philomela.

The Ancient Magus' Bride season 2 episode 23, titled Of two evils choose the less, may most likely reveal Adam and Iris's past. While Lizbeth wanted to resurrect only Adam and not Iris, Adam himself wasn't fond of Lizbeth. Hence, the upcoming episode could make a revelation, setting up the fight.

Given that Chise Hatori destroyed the Goddess summoning circle, the upcoming battle is bound to be against a godly entity. However, fans may have to wait until the next episode is released to find out its identity.
