When Ryuko refuses to wear Senketsu, Mako tries to talk some sense to her. Ryuko replies that she is the same Ryuko and that she is a monster. Nui appears to make Ryuko mad. Ragyo talks ill of Ryuko's father causing Ryuko to attack Ragyo. She invites Ryuko to meet her at the Honnouji Academy. Aikuro warns Ryuko that this is a trap, but he could not convince Ryuko who feels betrayed. Ryuko slices two buildings in the distance and tells everyone that she was a monster, made to wipe out the Life Fibers. In a Nudist Beach meeting, Nonon and Elite Four remain optimistic. Senketsu gets dupe by Mako, believing that she can understand him. Inumuta reveals footage of the school and then, Satsuki in a cage. When Satsuki scratches the floor with her toenail, Nonon and her group are revved up by Satsuki's determination.
Then, Aikuro reveals their warship, the Naked Sol. Mako's family sneaks on board to meet with Mako. Arriving to the Honnouji Academy, Ryuko hack and slash a large group of COVERS and announces that she is here. Nui welcomes Ryuko by attacking her. Ragyo watches Nui's fight until she is interrupted by Tsumugu's gang who fires missiles from their helicopter. Out in sea, Inumuta and Aikuro keep an eye on the situation at the academy. In her cage, Satsuki frees herself with her toenail that is made from Bakuzan.
During Nui's battle, she asks Ryuko who are her friends and enemies as she remarks that she is the only who understands Ryuko. Ryuko blinds Nui for a moment with her cloth and stabs Nui in the chest. Nui pretends to be in agony and reveals her heart is also stitched with Life Fiber. Suddenly, Ryuko's body is paralyzed with Life Fibers stitched into her. Ragyo has Junketsu take control of Ryuko. Meanwhile, Satsuki gets outside where Ira and the gang reunite with her. Once Junketsu assimilates with Ryuko's mind and body, Ryuko's mind is flooded with false memories of Ragyo and her perfect life. On the Naked Sol, Satsuki relaxes for a cup of tea. However, the gang have little time to relax when Ryuko crashes on their ship. Tsumugu takes out his DTR and engages Ryuko while Nonon and the Elite Four present Satsuki with the Bakuzan-Gako & Bakuzan-Kouryu.
