The 9's, led by 9'α, are sent to help Squad’s 13 and 26, and Alpha meets Ichigo and Goro but warns them about Zero Two devouring Hiro. This makes Ichigo more uneasy around Zero Two.

Kokoro starts to show an interest in Mitsuru but she is worried as he pushes people away. Goro finds out Hiro has had a large tumor growing on his heat since his first ride but is forced by Hiro to keep it a secret. Alpha informs Zero Two Zero Two that she has been ordered to return to the front lines alone. She later offers Hiro a chance to back out of his third ride but he refuses.
