After having a dream about Ryouta embracing her, she wakes up to see a ghastly woman in white. Ryouta wakes up startled and thinks it was a nightmare. Himiko states it was real because the person has another flashlight. Ryouta leads Himiko down the dark halls and tells her to search the floor below while he takes the above floor. When Himiko refuses due to being too dark, Ryouta spots a window with a light in it. Upon arriving to the room, Ryouta sees it has been used. Suddenly, the woman tries to slice him from behind with a sickle. On the ground, Ryouta kicks and knocks the woman to the floor. He arrives to inform Himiko who beat Ryouta with a flashlight after being startled by Ryouta. In the woman's room, the woman kicks Ryouta and yells that men should get out. Himiko urges Ryouta to get out. In the room, the woman tells Himiko not to trust any men. She notices that Himiko trusts the young man, but the woman states that everyone is only looking out for themselves.

As the woman (Shiki Murasaki) explains her past, she is a nurse who worked at a hospital who did all she could to protect the doctor she has respected. In the end, the doctor who she saved pointed to her that she's responsible. Then one day, she got a letter that asked her if there's anyone she would like to get rid of. On Btooom! island, she meets the doctor who urge her to work with him to put behind their pasts. After the two have obtained the sixth chip, he punches Shiki and blows her up with his homing BIM. Shiki blocks it with her BIM bag, and the doctor (Masahito Date) takes her chip. Back in the present, Shiki wonders why they're repeating the game over and over. She tells Shiki to be careful of the man once they get all the chips. Himiko explains to Ryouta about a helicopter coming for the person who has eight chips. Ryouta wonders if they can hijack the helicopter using their BIMs as a threat. With the break of dawn, Himiko looks sad, but she will not explain everything to Ryouta (about herself or what happens when you get six chips) because she trusts him.
