Climb back up to the top of the path. You may use the updrafts to quickly ascend to the top.
Enter the temple and speak with the old woman in the back of the temple. Listen to her story. Before you exit the Sealed Temple, you may open a nearby chest to obtain a Bottle with a Revitalizing Potion that heals you and your shield.

Once all toes are removed, the Imprisoned will fall over. Strike the sealing spike on its head until the pillar is embedded into its body. It will then attempt to slither upwards.
Alternatively, you may dash to a nearby updraft to get ahead of it. From a higher platform you can jump onto its' head and attack the sealing spike directly.
After the sealing spike has been embedded into the head three times, the Imprisoned will be re-sealed.
Run back down to the bottom of the pit to and hit the spike with a Skyward Strike. You'll then have to follow the on-screen instruction to strike the spike in a triangular formation. A few cutscenes will then play.
After everything is said and done, head outside and approach the Bird Statue, a dialogue with Gorko will play out. You may attempt to play the Goddess Harp where the butterflies are swarming to reveal a Gossip Stone.
Go to the Bird Statue and return to Skyloft.

The Imprisoned will awake once again, head to the bottom of the pit in the Sealed Grounds and deal with him.
Dealing with the imprisoned will be mostly similar, but this time it will have arms it can use to climb up. You can switch to controlling Groose to shoot bombs on its hands when it tries to climb up.
Clear out its toes like before till it falls down. When it does, drive the spike on its head deeper into its skull. Repeat this three times to slay the Imprisoned.
Return to the bottom of the pit to seal the spike back into the ground. You'll also have to slash in an hourglass formation to complete the seal.

Climb up the altar to where the light shines. A cutscene will play. Go through the Gate of Time to return to the present.
Speak with Groose before returning to Skyloft.
The Imprisoned is the large monster held within the Sealed Grounds. You will have to defend against this boss multiple times throughout the story to prevent it from escaping the area.
You will fight Ghirahim for the third and last time in the Sealed Grounds.
