Rikiga leads a client of his to a young girl, whom he has solicited to the client. The girl is really Inukashi in disguise. Nezumi and Rikiga bind and gag the man in order to get information from him, while Shion consoles Inukashi. The information they receive entails a map of the correctional facility in No.6, as well as word of a "pre-Holy Day cleaning operation." Back in the outskirts of the city, Shion asks Nezumi if he sent a message to his mother because he had finally come up with a plan. Suddenly, the town is attacked by No.6 military tanks. The army rounds up all the town's survivors, telling them they will be taken to the correctional facility. Meanwhile, Karan frets about Shion's safety, but Yoming assures her that Shion is fighting back and not to worry. He also informs her that the Twilight House was established to kill off all unneeded people of the city's elderly population. Karan then receives a message from one of Nezumi's rats, telling her that she will be reunited with Shion.
