Kamui floods the subway in order to take 500 train passengers hostage, freely using the Dominators to try and spark an overload in the Sibyl System and access its bypass system. Meanwhile, Kasei orders Akane to assassinate Kamui by setting off a detonation that would kill all the hostages, using the news that Aoi has been found dead to drive her towards that goal. While hesitating over what she should do, Kogami appears in Akane's conscience, encouraging her to find another option that doesn't necessarily involve killing. Akane gets into contact with Kamui and then confronts Kasei, stating her desire to overcome her plans. While Kamui manages to stop the detonation and releases the hostages, Akane confronts Togane, having deduced his true nature and goal, before Kamui appears before them, preparing to fire his Dominator at Togane.
