After Issei gets Asia from the cross- Reynalle released her to him-, he takes her upstairs to the main part of the church. While he is up there, Reynalle shows up and they end up fighting. During their fight if you are paying attention, Issei's sacred gear says "Boost" several times. One of first time his sacred gear is shown, Reynalle says it is a 'Twice Booster' which only boosts the user's power by 2 times. Issei wins the fight, but cannot kill Reynalle, because of his attachment to when she was part of this world as his girlfriend. Risa and everyone else in the Gremory clan shows up. Risa then explains Issei's sacred gear is not a mere 'Twice Booster' but 'Crimson Dragon Emperor Gauntlet' which has the power to kill 'Gods'. Reynalle tries to plea her way out of death to Issei and Issei asks Risa to deal with/kill Reynalle. Asia's sacred gear is then returned to her and is also brought back to life as a devil using a bishop piece from Risa's chess pieces.
