We also get to see a catatonic Kirito as, after the first season, the energy surge from the ocean Turtle inflicted great damage to Kirito’s Fluctlight. Now he hardly reacts to any outside stimuli.
Meanwhile, considering the safety and life of Kirito, Alice took him back to the safety of the Rulid Village. The initial scenes from the War of Underworld depicted how Alice was settled outside the Rulid Village as she regularly takes care of Kirito. She can’t move into civilizations due to her being a wanted criminal. However, this fact didn’t prevent Selka from visiting her every now and then. Alice has completely devoted herself to looking after Kirito and even lost the will to fight anymore. But the series can’t go like this as the action comes back to her life after the Dark God Vecta was resurrected.
