             As the Queen walks forward, everyone in the audience starts singing "God saves the Queen." Her attendant explains that she has worried everyone and would like to make her first appearance since her husband's death to taste curry for the competition.

The competition begins. Agni and Sebastian start making their curry dishes and everyone is astounded by the sweet aromas from both dishes. After Sebastian added chocolate to his curry, people started wondering why he would do that. Agni brings out a blue lobster and starts working even more diligently. One of the other competitors sees Agni's furry and decides to add a special powder he got from Angela.

            The competition ends and the judging begins. Persian Tabb's beef curry is up first and it does okay. Next is Agni's dish with blue lobster and seven different curries. His dish gets high praises and awe from the judges and audience. Sebastian's dish is up. He fries a bun looking thing and everyone thinks it is a joke.

Sebastian explains that it is curry bread where the curry is inside the bread. The judges give Sebastian's curry high remarks as well. While the judges discuss who should win, the audience starts trying the various curries made by the contestants. The Queen does not taste any curry because she may influence the judges' decision on the winner since she's the one who gives out the royal warrant.

            The Queen's butler, Ash tells Sebastian that the Queen wants to taste his curry bread. Sebastian gives it to the attendant and the Queen takes it. Under her veil, she tastes the curry bread. The attendant explains that the Queen thinks the dish is convenient for children to eat this who don't know how to use utensils. As Ash continues talking, Mina interrupts and becomes possessed (after eating the curry with the mysterious powder in it) about how a rich country doesn't know anything on equality, the future, and hardship.

 Other people start becoming possessed too and they try assaulting the Queen. Ciel commands Sebastian to dispel the myth and stop that Kali. Soma tries a bit of the curry and says that it is the demon curry. He further explains to Agni that this curry lets out the darkness within the human heart. It is a forbidden spice used in the curry. After talking about Agni's loyalty and how they've gone through a lot, Soma tells Agni to stop Mina's rampage.

            Then Ash says to Ciel that if the curry makes people rampage, then why isn't everyone causing an uproar. Ciel notices that the judges are not causing a ruckus and that it seems like Sebastian's curry bread helped with leviating the problem of the forbidden spice in the other curry. The attendant of the Queen says she thinks that the spice that wins against the demon and the kind and gentle curry bread that can heal the people who've become demons deserves the royal warrant.

            Soma thanks Ciel for making Soma notice his inner spoilt brat behavior. Agni thanks Sebastian in a similar manner. Sebastian says there is no need to thank him. Agni is happy that they've gone to to meet these good friends; Sebastian becomes surprised because this is the first time someone has called him a "friend."
