Ciel throws the Ring of Hope at the chair's backside. The master states that Ciel was fated to die since birth and that he is unclean.

Sebastian says that the room is now filled with invisible puppet strings. After everyone steps outside, Grell goes away.

Sebastian holds a birthday party for a gruntled Ciel. When Ciel cuts into the pudding, he finds a ring in it.

Ciel and Sebatian talk about the ring resurfacing. Sebastian says he will protect Ciel no matter what; he then states that no one has lived in the mansion they were investigating earlier for a long period of time. They talk about a crest seen on the floor of a room in that mansion. The miniature puppet is running in the snow and spouts about eliminating the unclean.
