Riru notices that the crowd outside the Simeon building is getting restless, so she dispatches another three-person team from her Pretty Girl Squad to deal with it.
Back in the Third Shelter, Adam Blade rams Aruka with a giant thunderball, culminating in a dramatic "DEATH SENTENCE" (strangely enough, no one has ever died when any character says this). Aruka picks herself back up, and tries to kill her brother again, but for some reason she can't do it. Not because she doesn't want to, but someone has drained her power.
Adam Arclight finally makes an appearance, talking about how he dealt with the crowd outside: throwing a concert with the Pretty Girl Squad which makes the downtrodden, captive residents of Black Spot suddenly happy again. Blade is, of course, sad that he can't see the concert (Cruz yells that the final boss is right in front of him, he can't give up now). After this, they calmly move to an observation wing of the Simeon building, where Arclight gives a speech and then beats the living crap out of Blade.
All of Blade's attacks are useless, as Arclight can simply counter them with even stronger versions. At one point, he even sticks his hand through Blade's chest to prove a point, but Blade takes advantage of the situation and headbutts Arclight with his Byakugou to absorb the power of his Fragment. But something goes wrong as Arclight tries to counterattack while he's absorbing the information, causing space to get all warped and blue as the episode ends.
Also, Saten has an eeeeevil plan different from Arclight, but it doesn't really matter yet.
