"Digging Deeper, Part 2", known as "Resurrected Soul: The New Geoglyph Ablaze" in the Japanese version, is the thirty-eighth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's anime. It first aired in Japan on December 17, 2008 and in the United States on August 13, 2009.
Carly Carmine, who has been thrown off the Arcadia Movement building to her death as a result of her Duel with Sayer, has come back to life as a Dark Signer, seeking revenge. Meanwhile, Misty Tredwell, after sensing that Carly has fully become a Dark Signer, goes to the Arcadia Movement to Duel Akiza Izinski as she desires revenge of her own.
As Carly falls several stories from the Arcadia Movement building, flashes of time she spent with Jack flash before her eyes. She calls out his name, before crashing through the roof of a building below and penetrating into the ground (in the dub, this is obscured by a purple fog). Looking down Sayer calls her a foolish woman and laughs out loud (in the dub, his laughter is cut, as he instead wonders what the purple fog is). Down below Carly and her cards begin to glow, changing form, causing earthquake tremors (in the dub she thinks that the landing wasn't as hard as she thought, recognizes her cards falling towards her, and begins to wonder what is happening to her).
Sayer ceases laughing, while elsewhere other characters display mixed reactions. The tea in Misty's cup trembles, as she feels the earthquake. She expels a short sigh of sudden surprise, before whispering Carly's name, understanding something has just happened. She prepares herself, realizing "the time has come". Lazar shakes in panic, asking what's causing such tremors, while Goodwin sits nearby spellbound. At Jack's place, he and Mina stare at the sky flooded with dark blue clouds, both of them caught between awe and anticipation of trouble.
Two purple pillars of light erupt from the ground. The pillars tear through the city streets, ripping up roads and tossing impeding cars aside, leaving a trail of purple light.
Inside the Arcadia Movement building, Sayer becomes anxious. Elsewhere in the building, Luna presses against the window of Leo's room, fearing for his safety. Inside Tanner and Yanagi's cell, Tanner beats against the door, demanding a release, as the room shakes. The earthquake causes two overhanging lights to smash into each other, filling the room with falling shards of glass as Tanner and Yanagi take cover.
The sky teems with lightning as the purple light finishes inscribing the shape of the Hummingbird Nazca Line throughout the city, with the Arcadia Movement building as a focal point.
Sayer grabs his office phone and demands an immediate evacuation of the building. One person enters the room, semi-concealed by shadows from Sayer's perspective. Sayer diverts his attention to the figure approaching him. Incomprehensive of why someone would come here at a time like this, he yells at them to hurry and run. The figure only replies, "Sayer, I will make you pay." A bolt of lightning strikes outside, illuminating the room for a split second, which is enough for Sayer to recognize the person confronting him as Carly. Carly stares at him with a zombie-like expression, with her pupils swelled. Sayer drops the phone and states the illogicality of the situation; it's impossible that Carly could have survived such a fall (in the dub, he tells himself that it's the stress of his job). Carly says she's revived in order to send him to the grave. A hummingbird Mark of the Shadows glows on her arm. She interprets the nature of the throbbing pain it gives her as it telling her to offer Sayer's soul as a sacrifice (she does not mention this in the dub, instead noting that the Dark Signers are recruiting).
Carly challenges Sayer to a Shadow Duel. Before Sayer can answer, Carly becomes engulfed in purple light, changing her clothes to Dark Signer robes and her Duel Disk to a more sinister draconian looking one. Her sclera are now blackened, portraying a sense of evil. Lastly, a mark appears below her eye. She smiles maliciously and readies her Duel Disk. Sayer doesn't know what trick Carly used to survive, but sees Carly as a fool ignorant of her limitations, now that she's challenged him to a rematch (in the dub, he recognizes her as a Dark Signer). But Carly assures him this won't be the same as before, she'll send him and his ambitions to a world of darkness. Sayer says she's not making any sense, but accepts her challenge and tells her to savor the powers of Psychic Dueling.
Sayer goes first. He Summons "Krebons" and uses "Emergency Teleport" to Special Summon "Mind Protector". He tunes the Level 2 "Krebons" and the Level 3 "Mind Protector" and chants, "My flames of hatred, inflamed within the abyss of my heart, become the black raging waves that overrun this world. Synchro Summon! Magical Android!" He ends his turn and gains 600 Life Points due to the effect of "Magical Android".
Carly begins her turn and activates the Field Spell Card "Future Visions". The room fills with a glowing pink mist. Carly claims that her Dueling will read Sayer's future. Sayer smirks and admits that he had thought she actually had something planned, but now thinks it the same old Fortune-Telling Deck as before. He tells her that he doesn't believe in supernatural concepts and refuses to allow his future to be controlled by anyone, fate or not. Carly challenges him to try to escape from the fate she's about to foretell. She Summons "Fortune Lady Light". Due to the effect of "Future Visions", "Light" is removed from play. "Light" gives a wave, swings her staff and teleports away. Sayer thinks that the move was pointless, but Carly uses the effect of "Light" to Special Summon "Fortune Lady Fire" from her Deck. With only 400 ATK, Sayer asks how this "runt" can stand up to "Magical Android", who is at 2400 ATK. Carly explains the effect of "Fire"; when it is Special Summoned in Attack Position, it can destroy an opponent's monster and inflict damage to the opponent equal to its ATK. "Fire" sends a blast of fire from her staff, engulfing "Magical Android" in flames and destroying it. The flames continue to rush and hit Sayer as he takes the damage and it blasted back into the window. As he stands up, he asks what this power is, noting how it's even greater than Psychic Dueling. Carly then attacks Sayer with "Fire", dropping his Life Points to 1800. Carly Sets a card in her Spell & Trap Card Zone and ends her turn. She points out that she forgot to tell him what his fortune was. With a malevolent look on her face, she tells him it was "death". Sayer looks up in horror.
Lazar and Goodwin observe the activity around the Arcadia Movement building on a screen. Both are surprised that it is happening in New Domino City as opposed to the Satellite. Lazar, who is in utter panic, asks Goodwin if this means the Dark Signers are in the city.
Akiza moves through the corridors in search of Sayer. She is confronted by Misty, who is standing in an adjacent balcony hallway. Misty states that she cannot let her go to Sayer. Akiza recognizes her. Misty sees it as an honor that Akiza knows who she is, and tells her that she too is familiar with her, the Black Rose. Misty then announces that Akiza will not escape her revenge. Akiza claims to not know what she's talking about, but Misty believes she's hiding the truth, as she expected. "Nothing he hears will make him come back now," Misty says, but she would like Akiza to apologize at the very least. Apologize, by going to where he is and doing so. Akiza stares back in shock and asks "Who are you?". Misty replies, "A Dark Signer". Akiza is unfamiliar with the term. Misty begins to make her way over to Akiza's balcony, explaining that they were destined to fight. By accepting this destiny, she gained the power of vengeance. She stops walking as she stands directly opposite Akiza. She turns to face her and announces that a five thousand year long seal has been unraveled. Her hair starts flowing back, as she says that all that's left is to fight until either her group or Akiza's is eliminated.
Misty holds out her arm, as her Mark of the Shadows appears. Purple light appears below her and engulfs her, as she goes through the same transformation as Carly. She faces Akiza in full Dark Signer regalia, as another earthquake begins.
The sky crackles with lightning once more. This time Jack is in a nearby street, on his Duel Runner. The eradicating light sketching Misty's Nazca Line comes up the street behind him. Jack speeds forward and pulls aside into an alley for cover (in the dub, he intends to get a better look at the phenomena). He turns into a building and speeds up a stairway, before smashing through a door onto the roof. He stops to look at the chaos caused by the light: a number of torn-up buildings and streets around the Arcadia Movement building, which is now the focal point for two Nazca geoglyphs, Carly's Hummingbird and Misty's Lizard.
Back in Goodwin's office, Lazar's panic elevates a few notches, leaving him speechless, as he and Goodwin observe the second glyph after appearing.
Jack and Yusei's Marks start glowing. Yusei dashes outdoors and sees the two Nazca Lines glowing over the city. Jack infers that someone else with a Mark of the Dragon is dueling, at the Arcadia Movement. He begins ramping his Duel Runner from rooftop to rooftop in its direction.
Back in Tanner and Yanagi's cell, the two are recovering from the second earthquake. Tanner sees the situation as advantageous to them. Making use of the damage caused, he manages to break down the door. Now out of the cell, they go in search of Leo and Luna.
Misty declares that she has come to crush the Arcadia Movement and leaves Akiza no choice but to accept her Duel. Although she still doesn't understand Misty's motives, Akiza accepts the challenge and collects her Duel Disk from a compartment in the wall. Feeling she belongs in the Arcadia Movement, she refuses to let Misty destroy it.
Both ladies ready their Duel Disks and begin. Akiza goes first and Summons "Twilight Rose Knight" and uses its effect to Summon "Lord Poison". Tuning both monsters and chanting, "Chilling flames engulf the entire world. Pitch-dark flower, set into bloom. Synchro Summon! Appear now, Black Rose Dragon!" Misty notes that Akiza Summoning "Black Rose Dragon" is proof that she is a Signer. She flashes back to a time when she was rushed through hospital corridors on a stretcher, while in critical condition. She wasn't sure why her life was spared that day, but remembers the Lizard "Earthbound Immortal" leaping inside her body (in the dub, she believes that she was saved in order to discover what happened to her brother). Unaware what it was, she knows that it told her to kill the servant of the Crimson Dragon, Black Rose. Akiza Sets three cards face-down and ends her turn.
Misty activates the Field Spell Card, "Savage Colosseum". The area transforms into a Colosseum-like setting, as the hallways are filled wth arches. She then activates "Field Barrier", protecting it from destruction and concerning Akiza. Next Misty Summons "Reptile Gorgon" and equips it with "Attack Pheromones" and "Molting Escape". She orders "Reptile Gorgon" to attack "Black Rose Dragon". Akiza is surprised, as the attack is seemingly suicide, since "Black Rose Dragon" has 1000 more ATK. Misty takes 1000 damage, but "Gorgon" is protected by "Molting Escape" and gains 100 ATK. As per the Gorgons from Greek Mythology, anyone who should look at one would be turned to stone. Having battled with "Reptile Gorgon", "Black Rose Dragon" becomes petrified, turning to stone and causing its ATK to drop to 0 and preventing it from changing battle position. Misty then gains 300 Life Points due to the effect of "Savage Colosseum". Akiza stands her ground and vows to protect the Arcadia Movement. Misty replies she wouldn't count on that and she claims that even Sayer should be gone right about now.

The second effect of "Molting Escape" activates ("Reptile Gorgon": 1400 → 1500/1400). As "Reptile Gorgon" attacked an opponent's monster, Misty activates its effect after damage calculation, reducing the ATK of the attack target to 0 and preventing it from changing its battle position ("Black Rose Dragon": 2400 → 0/1800).
