Rider, accompanied by Waver, unexpectedly arrives at the Einzbern Castle on Gordius Wheel. Greeting Saber and Iri, Rider announces he came to have a drink with Saber. Saber accepts and everyone gathers at the castle’s garden, only to be joined by Archer who Rider invited. Archer expresses distaste on the wine Rider brought for them so he brings out a better wine from his collection. As the three discuss Kingship and their wish for the Grail, Saber and Rider have an argument of philosophy over being a King. Saber argues a King should serve for his people and wants to win the Grail to save Britain which she failed in the past but Rider believes it’s the people who should serve for their King and was proud on his reign even when Macedonia fell after his death. Furthermore, Rider criticizes Saber for being a protector to her people rather than a King which lead them to resent her and rebel while his Kingly ambitions made his people love him and inspire them to seek their own ambitions. Their talk is soon interrupted when the Assassins arrive and surround them. When they refuse Rider’s offer to drink with them, Rider transforms into his armor and summons his Noble Phantasm, the Reality Marble “Ionian Hetairoi”, the Armies of Macedonia composed of the soldiers who remained loyal to him and became Servants themselves where they outnumbered the Assassins and proceed to decimate them. With their drink over, Rider departs with Waver but not before saying he no longer recognizes Saber as a King with Archer leaving as well before telling Saber she should stick to her beliefs because her suffering amuses him. Iri rushes to Saber, who reveals she once had a knight who left Camelot because he was dissatisfied with her rule which makes Saber question if the Knights of the Round Table felt the same way.
