Both Ayumi and Maya struggle with Helen’s moment of realization that everything has a name and each actress finds their answer in a different way. Ayumi is first to perform and Maya does not watch because she doesn’t want to be influenced by Ayumi’s interpretation of Helen. Instead, Maya sits in the lobby and there has a talk with Masumi. When she tells him acting makes her feel as though she is alive, he tells her he envies her, which she finds surprising.
During her first performance, Maya is intense onstage, which troubles Utako in the beginning, but Onodera allows Utako to take control of the play and together, Utako and Maya produce something very special. After the performance is over, Utako tells Maya that she has not felt such a sense of accomplishment in a long time.
