Episode Summary

Back at the duel, Yugi uses "The Eye of Truth" to see Seto's hand and is surprised to see a "Blue-Eyes White Dragon" and that he has not Summoned it yet. He then uses "Mystic Box" to destroy "Ancient Lamp", allowing "Dark Magician" to destroy "La Jinn the Mystical Genie of the Lamp". Seto Summons "Saggi the Dark Clown". Yugi destroys it with "Gaia the Fierce Knight", but this activates "Crush Card", destroying all of Yugi's monsters with 1500 or more ATK. Yugi can still use equip cards to power up his weak monsters, but Seto has drawn all three "Blue-Eyes White Dragons" and "Polymerization", forming the "Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon". Can Yugi defeat the most powerful Duel Monster in the game, or will he be eliminated and lose his chance to save his Grandpa?
