Just when Kenji is having this conversation with Bram and Aya, he is interrupted by the sudden appearance of Suehiro on the scene. He knows that the Hunting Dog is not going to leave any stones unturned to attack him and his comrades so he tells Bram and Aya to run away without him. Meanwhile, Atsushi is desperately trying to get to the scene as well as he knows that a lot depends on Detective Agency’s attempts to get Bram in their custody as Fukuchi’s plan won’t be complete without him. 

However, before he can reach Kenji and the others he notices Aya sitting alone on the floor. He enquires if she is okay but it turns out that she is actually Teruko who has disguised as Aya to fool Atsushi. Teruko immediately grabs Atsushi by the collar and is ready to torture him. But despite the threat, Atsushi remains quite calm and knows what he needs to do in this situation. He pulls out his phone and Teruko seems to think that he is trying to call his comrades for help. But when she gets the device, she is shocked to see a video of Tachihara. 

In that video, he claims that he is either dead or even in a much worse situation by the time the clip reaches the Hunting Dogs. But he has recorded it just to give his friends a message that he has completed his investigation and has come to the conclusion that the Armed Detective Agency is actually innocent. Teruko refuses to believe what she saw and calls it a falsified video. Atsushi sticks to his guns after which, Teruko agrees to work with the Armed Detective Agency to get to the bottom of the things on the condition that she gets to meet the mastermind of their group. 

Although this seems like a very enticing deal, Atsushi is also afraid that things go wrong in countless ways. Therefore, he decides to call Rampo first while Teruko watches him. At the end, she smirks and the episode ends there.
