The Cave of the Sun God is on the land of Momiji’s family
Mr Kunikida knows he has to kill Kaede but doubts he can, and Momiji and Kaede’s mother is also willing to do the same, creating a barrier with her own blood because she was once the Kushinada. Kaede and Susano-O easily break through
Kusangi battles Murakumo throughout the episode and hangs in there fairly well despite being under-powered, even drawing blood on Murakumo, but he ends up being killed by Muarakumo, Momiji actually flies to Kusanagi’s location seeing the final blow as Kusangi manages to crack the mirror but its too late
Murakumo creates a mirror that when the sun this it will signal the arrival of Susana-O at the Cave of the Sun God
Momiji can sense the presence and communicate with Kaeda and Murakumo via telephaty like she can with Kusanagi
Momiji and Ryoko went searching for the Cave, but it turned they were tracking the battle between Kusanagi and Murakumo, when Susana-O attacks
Kaede reveals that for Japan to be worthy of her protection as the Kushinada is that everyone must become plants.
Huge difference between Kaede and Momiji is that Kaede has no 'heart'
