   その執事、異能  (Sono Shitsuji, Inou)


           Sebastian informs Ciel that Agni has left their estate. Soma, Ciel, Lau and Sebastian spy on Agni while he enters the house of Harold West Jebb (who handles lots of Indian imports). Agni says the plan is complete and Harold says that the hanging incidients don't need to happen anymore because the competition is gone now. Soma runs in the room when Agni mentions Mina and he loses his cover. Harold and Soma both tell Agni to hit the other person. 

 Agni was about to hit Soma when Sebastian stepped in the way with a deer mask. Harold tells Agni to kill the "deer" but he flinches as his eyes start bleeding. He laments over betraying his god. Agni loses control over himself and starts attacking Sebastian and Soma. The four intruders left Harold's estate under Ciel's command. Back in the Phantomhive estate, Soma explains that Agni went through "Concentration," an absolute belief in the god of Soma that gives him supernatural powers.

Prince Soma runs away after crying over people disappearing on him. Sebastian goes to Soma's room and gives him a lecture about being impolite, a brat, and self-pity. Sebastian explains that Soma has never owned anything before and no one loving him. Ciel stops Sebastian from talking about that and how he used to be a powerless kid until the incident with his family killed and other tragedies. He says he isn't moping around because he needs to "get back" on the people that have done him wrong. Ciel leaves to investigate Harold and Soma tries to go with them.  

Over tea, Ciel explains that Harold wants a "royal warrant," a title where the royalty backs up a certain place, for his Indian coffeehouse. Sebastian states that there will be a curry competition in a week's time and the Queen (who loves curry) will be attending. He wants to defeat his competition to gain the warrant to get more customers. Ciel predicts that Agni partnered with Harold to get Mina back for Soma

  Lau says to leave this case to Scotland Yard since it doesn't connect to the underworld and has nothing to do with their company. Ciel says he will enter the competition so he can get the royal warrant for his company because he wants to expand on food. Sebastian says he will win but Soma says that Agni has the god's curry right hand. Soma explains the best curry and how Agni can make it. Sebastian makes lots of curry and Soma tries them all. Soma says something is still missing.

            Everyone goes to the competition. Prince Soma sees Mina in the crowd and catches up to her. He asks her to go back to the castle with him but she starts complaining about the bad quality of the castle and its spoiled royalty. She doesn't want to live a restricted life in the caste system where if you're born lower class, you must be a servant for the rest of your life. 

  She says Soma is old enough to understand reality now and how she went willingly with Harold. Agni and Sebastian talk about Agni's contract with Harold and a fellow competitor overhears. Angela gives him something he can use for the competition. The competition is about to start and the Queen arrives with red carpet treatment.
