Satsuki's Elite Four will not allow Ryuko to hit Satsuki. Ryuko realizes that Satsuki's gang is no different than her gang who protected her. Satsuki admits she tries to use Ryuko's gang as pawns to defeat Ragyo. She realizes she acted like Ragyo. She bows in apology towards Ryuko. Ryuko accepts Satsuki, and the two join forces against Ragyo. Sukuyo makes dinner for the gang. Elsewhere, Ragyo is amused by her daughters. Shiro informs Satsuki that they will retailor Junketsu and mix in of Senketsu's blood in it. Satsuki debriefs her gang about Ragyo's plan to turn the whole planet into a Starseed Cocoon Sphere.
