In the greenly lit city, Lyfa asks Kirito if he knows how to land, and she bids Kirito good luck. On the ground, Lyfa heals Kirito. Recon arrives to inform Lyfa about a meeting, but Lyfa declines when she tells him that she wants to drink with Kirito. In a cafe, Kirito and Yui teases Lyfa when they asked her if Recon is her boyfriend. Kirito asks Lyfa about the World Tree, and Lyfa comments that every race have a limit on flying continuously for 10 minutes except for a race called Alfs. There are NPC guardians defending the dome which prevents players from reaching the top of the World Tree and clearing the game. Kirito snaps a bit when Lyfa comments that it will take a year or longer to reach the top. He explains to Lyfa that he is looking for someone. Once Lyfa logs off, it is revealed to be Suguha who is flustered at Kirito. Upstairs, Yui asks her daddy if she can sleep next to him when Kirito logs off.

Sugou: Hello my little doll

High in the skies above, Asuna tries to touch the birds only to scare them away. A young man opens the cage and addresses her as Titania. Asuna asks Sugou (Fairy King Oberon) to stop calling her by the name. Sugou states that she is his bride, but Asuna refuses to acknowledge that. He slowly pulls the ribbon on Asuna's chest only to stop. He informs Asuna that he found hundreds of test subjects to see if he can control their emotions. When Asuna states that she will report him to the police, Sugou states that he can alter her memories, but he does not want to make her into a mere doll. Before leaving, Sugou tells her to be submissive. Asuna tries to memorize the password that Sugou punches, yet she cannot when her vision is blurred out.
