The two begin to fight, the blond man takes a briefcase from Tom and Shizuo. Shizuo becomes enraged and uses the park bench he and Tom were sitting on as a baseball bat and launches the two out of the park.

In Shinra's apartment we see him trapped inside of a sphere of Celty's shadows. He explains everything by taking us back in time, after the end of the last episode Celty goes back home and waits for Shinra to come back. When Shinra gets back home he finds Celty inside a sphere she made out of her shadows, she brings Shinra inside and tells him about how she lost the million yen she had. Shinra tells her that she doesn't have to worry about that. Celty gets a call for a job and heads out but forgets to release Shinra from her shadow.
At the end of class Mikado is approached by Aoba. Aoba tells Mikado that he is in the Dollars and that he knows that Mikado is in the Dollars as well because he saw him at the Dollars meet up in front of the Tokyo Hands building. Aoba asks Mikado if he can take him on a tour of Ikebukuro.
Anri then heads out and walks past Egor, the tall blond man. Saika then starts acting up and Shingen tells Anri that he knows about Saika. When Anri asks how he knows this, Shingen only gives her his card and tells her to call him is she wants to know. Egor puts his hand on Anri's shoulder, she gets scared and moves away. Egor tells her that he has urgent business to take care of with Shingen. Anri then leaves as Shingen and Egor go back to their private room.
In Izaya's place Namie tells him how she wanted to be at Seiji's opening ceremony and tells Izaya that his sisters just started as first year students. Izaya explains that he doesn't like his sisters. Namie is then surprised that he despises anyone other than Shizuo. Izaya tells Namie about his sisters eccentric personalities. Namie asks if they might get bullied because of that. Izaya says that if they get bullied, he'd feel sorry for "them."
Back at Rira, we see Mairu being bullied, she then pounces on one of the bullies and tells her to point out their "leader." When she points her out Mairu takes her to the bathroom. After this the bullies decide to bully her sister. The teacher asks who did this to her desk, Aoba then answers that it was Tsukiyama and some girls from another class.
