Detailed Summary

Adapted from crunchyroll recap.

Ren gets excited thinking he's controlling Endorsi. But, of course, Endorsi has bonded with her little niece and spares her life. She'd rather have lunch with Anaak instead. She gives the little Lizard Girl the Green April in exchange for the Black March, and the two turn their attention to Ren. It works for a while, but Ren makes an effortless comeback — but his attack is cut short by Yuri, who has finally caught up with the group after stumbling across Shibisu. Yuri refuses to allow Ren to retrieve the 13 Month Series weapons for King Jahad, insisting she'll do it herself. Ren and Yuri face-off and because she's also a Ranker, the Princess quickly dominates the sneaky Rice Boy.

Rak easily outruns the stampeding Goblins but changes his mind mid-flight, deciding he'd rather stand and fight. Rak seems to be enjoying himself but Paracule grows more and more frightened as the Goblins close in. Suddenly the Regulars find themselves floating in the air — Lauroe has bothered to wake up long enough to get his teammates out of this jam. Right after redirecting the Pigs toward the Goblins, causing the Regulars' enemies to fight each other, instead. All according to Khun's plan, of course.

Oh, and during ALL OF THIS DRAMA, a new mysterious new person who looks an awful lot like Khun shows up and just ... shuts off surveillance cameras right as the Director and Lero-Ro are about to discover Yuri has crashed the Test. Who is this guy? He offers to take Khun to see Maria while the Director interrupts Evan and Kurdan with some nice coffee. He knew all along it was Yuri and that Evan and Kurdan were on their way. Evan realizes this is all a set-up and tries to warn Yuri not to help Anaak's daughter ... so she sets Kurdan on Ren, instead. Oh, and Khun turns down the chance to see Maria. But I have a feeling we'll be seeing this new guy again.

Meanwhile, Rachel and Bam haven't had much to do besides Bam talking a lot about how much he's changed since his days in the cave. The two have been floating in a big ball of Shinsu the entire time, just waiting to be eaten by a giant fish. In his dying moments, Ren sends the Bull after Rachel and Bam. Bam fights hard against the Bull and the two are finally eaten by the fish. Yay! And then Rachel stands from her wheelchair and shoves Bam right out of the Shinsu bubble. Oh no!
