in continuation of the previous episode, Vitorique requests and is granted permission to dig up the grave of Nicole Lulu to aid in the investigation to the mystery of Coco Rose. when the coffin was dug up, the body found was headless. Victorique deduces the body was embalmed and the cause of death was a chest stab wound, and the head was removed, and suggested to Grevil to ask the caretaker who brought the body there.
Kazuya and Victorique notice a locket , and grab it quickly, with Kazuya pretending to do an oriental prayer.
 Away from the gravediggers, Victorique reads a note from a carrier pigeon. Grevil returns to tell her that the body was carried in by a well dressed gentlemen, confirming her expectations. she then tells Grevil to return with her to the theatre.
At the theater, the show is beginning. Victorique tells Kazuya she will explain the mystery as the play goes along. She then reminds him of the Leviathan incident, and says the answer of this will be like another story unwritten in that memoir.
In the Play, she pointed out a discrepancy with Leviathan's account where it was said that the queen summoned him.
also, in the play, it was said that the queen had given a stillbirth in 1900. however, Victorique says otherwise, saying this was when the queen died, and the truth splits from the legend. she notes that the queen was already murdered, and that it was a crime of passion, and the murder was covered up. A search for a dead ringer to the queen was done, and  Nicole Lulu was found, through the secretary search. Lulu was brought to the countryside to live, and returning back and forth between city and country was believed to be done through the "Magic Stone" of the Leviathan.
