At Furuichi's bathroom, Alaindelon notices the wine glass cracks while he presents it to Furuichi who is inside of the bath tub.

Back at the construction site, Yuka restrains Kanzaki who wants to help out. Kaname remembers the principal's warning about not going against the demons. Regardless, Kaname stands up and attempts to attack Graphel. Suddenly, Graphel grabs Kaname's face with his palm and slams him into the ground. He yells at Kaname for being too cocky.
