His plans failed, Ver attempts to overload the Nephilim heart, unleashing its true form, which can absorb the power of Symphogears. Using Solomon's Cane, the girls open a gate to the Noise's dimension, pusing the Nephilim inside it, entering the dimension themselves when Maria is dragged inside too. After combining their power to break through the Nephilim and return to Earth, Miku manages to seal the gate before the Nephilim explodes, taking out all of the Noise inside the dimension.
