Gai is seen taking a Void from a patient while Seiga takes a photo of him. Though, Seiga deletes the picture since it doesn't look right. Meanwhile, Haruka walks along with a gun after apologizing to Mana. She finds out that Mana is gone, and Keido comments that Haruka is like her husband. She asks him if he is the one who killed her husband and why because Keido and Shu's father are best friends. Then, Keido fires a gun shot. Later, Shu gets behind Arisa and pokes a gun at her back. He demands her to tell him where Inori is. Arisa's handheld plays the news about Haruka is a wanted criminal on the run. Seiga notices something and begins to laugh. He tells Keido that he would be glad to chase down Haruka. In the city, Arisa drives off the car to chase after Haruka with Shu boarding the vehicle.
