Heart of Stone
No Expectations is the 261st chapter of The World God Only Knows.
In the blank space, Tenri notices the broken time machine and Tsukiyo with Luna lying next to it. She wakes up and soon Yui joins them, carrying Shiori on her back, on account of the latter spraining her own. Ayumi and Kanon arrive next, carrying the unconscious Keima.
Tenri explains to the other goddess hosts that they were supposed to bring Keima back from the past using the broken machine, but since it was destroyed the timelines can't connect anymore, causing the whole world to disappear. The hosts wonder why didn't they disappear as well, at first attributing it to the goddesses, but Keima, who also didn't disappear, does not possess one.
Vulcan, speaking via Luna, chimes in with her theory that this situation was purposefully caused by someone, before volunteering to repair the machine on her own. The goddess hosts hold hands in a circle, lending power to Vulcan, who fixes the machine. In the past, Keima starts moving again, still trying to communicate via the machine, which is heard by the goddess hosts on the other side.
- This chapter's title is a reference to a song from The Rolling Stones.
- The panel where all the goddess hosts hold hands together resembles a scene from the ending theme of season 3.
