The episode opens with a flashback to sixth months prior, to the third-rate tabloid writer falling through the air and landing on the pavement with a seething Shizuo standing beside him. Niekawa had been following a story about the strongest guy in Ikebukuro. In the present day, the story leads him to talk to Simon and Denis at Russia Sushi, who direct him to Shiki of the Awakusu-Kai. Shiki mentions the name Shizuo Heiwajima and sends Niekawa to an information broker in Shinjuku. Niekawa meets Izaya Orihara, who refuses to talk about Shizuo but introduces Niekawa to a friend of his. Niekawa meets Celty in a park, who tells him about Shizuo's strength.

In a park, Celty and Shizuo are sitting on Celty's bike. Shizuo is seething with anger toward the Slasher for attacking Celty earlier. Horada and his thugs are standing nearby, glaring at Celty. When Shizuo approaches, they threaten him and realize too late who the 'bartender' is.

Walking home, Anri is thinking about Haruna Niekawa, the girl who had transferred out of school. Kinnosuke Kuzuhara and another police officer stop her, as it's too late for students to be out. They get a call and leave, offering to let Anri wait at a police box until they come back.

Anri is standing at the spot where the Slasher attacked her and the bullies a short while before, wondering what she is doing there. She turns to see Niekawa approaching her with glowing red eyes and holding a knife. As he swings the knife at her, Saburo accelerates the van and crashes into him. Niekawa rises and swings his knife wildly, focusing on Anri. As he runs toward her, ignoring Kyohei's gang, Celty's motorcycle crashes into him. The gang are stunned by the sight of Shizuo and the Headless Rider, but Niekawa stands up again. He focuses on Shizuo, proclaiming his love for him. Shizuo rips the door off of Saburo's van and uses it as a shield as he runs into Niekawa, and from Niekawa's perspective, everything goes black.

Chat Room

Kanra tells Setton and Taro Tanaka about a reporter being attacked by the Slasher. As they are discussing the incident, Saika enters the chat, repeating the word 'cut.' Saika's disconnected words are turning into almost coherent phrases. Setton tries to make converation, and Taro Tanaka wonders if Saika could be the Slasher, which Kanra laughs off. Saika repeats the name Shizuo Heiwajima until they abruptly exit the chat room.

Niekawa: "I'm... flying?"

Shizuo: "You know looks can kill, right? You may not know this, but according to statistics, the chances of a stare killing a guy are .00000000000675%. So if you give someone stink-eye, then you can't complain if they kill you, can you?"

Walker: "I'm going to adopt a cute green-haired girl as my daughter and then come back and live happily next to three beautiful sisters. I would be happy if I can live such a modest life."
