Things look grim for Kaiba as he draws his first of only six cards remaining in his deck. Ishizu, however, activates a trap card that forces him to discard the card he drew. Kaiba serches for a way to use the cards in his hand to win, and realizes he has Obelisk and Soul Exchange. He waits for Ishizu to bring out three monsters, and then tributes them all for Obelisk.
With nothing guarding her life points, it looks like an easy way to victory, but Ishizu isn't worried. She's seen the future, and in it is Kaiba's defeat. Unknown to him, one of the monsters he tributed for Obelisk has attached itself to him. If he calls for an attack, it will backfire against him, giving Ishizu the victory.
Kaiba prepares to attack, but Yami Malik uses the Millennium Rod to stop him and force him to see images of his previous life as an egyptian priest. Part of the vision includes the stone tablet of the Blue EYes White Dragon. When Kaiba returns to the real world, he notices he has a Blue EYes in his hand.
He tributes Obelisk and one other monster to summon his faithful monster before attacking and wiping out Ishizu's life points. But the attack was not seen in the future Ishizu saw, and she is stunned, but also glad the future is still unknown.
Now she can still believe there is hope for Malik: That one of the finalists can beat the evil spirit and help her brother.
