The three old generals discuss the Eye of Mikhail. They seem to be working together, but a short while later, Shiroki kills Nabiki. Ogi fakes a suicide note that is supposedly written by Nabiki, and in the note, Shiroki is made to look as if he was planning to kill Wakaba Oak. Shiroki is then dragged away, presumably to be punished, and when Ogi is alone afterwards, he gloats to himself, but Katsuragi interrupts and kills him, revealing that he (Katsuragi) is an impostor working for Ayanami, and that Ogi's entire unit did not survive the Raggs War. Katsuragi places the Eye of Mikhail in Ogi's hand and leaves.
The military soon learns of Ogi's death, and a soldier delivers the news to Wakaba Oak. Wakaba reflects that the three old generals were "destroyed by their greed", but feels suspicious of Ayanami's alibi, and smirks when he suspects that Ayanami and the Black Hawks will try to eliminate him (Wakaba) next.
Meanwhile, Ayanami meets Kuroyuri and Katsuragi, and thanks Katsuragi for his "hard work". Kuroyuri and Katsuragi offer Ayanami some "specially made nutrition-replenishing jelly", to which Ayanami has no response. As the three walk on, Katsuragi suddenly drives his sword through a wall and Kuroyuri asks what's wrong. Katsuragi replies that a "rat" has recently been spying on them, and that it doesn't hurt to be cautious. On the other side of the wall, Teito's childhood acquaintance and Miroku's begleiter, Karu, smiles and walks on.
The scene changes to show a flashback of Ouka and the Eye of Raphael undergoing brainwashing three days earlier. Raphael possesses Ouka, answers some questions Nanase asks him and informs Nanase of his and Ouka's meeting with Teito and Mikhail. The angel begins to panic but Nanase manages to calm him down and gets him to divulge Teito's name. Raphael then goes back to sleep and Ouka wakes up, feeling ill. Nanase prescribes some medicine for her and she leaves the laboratory as some soldiers are dispatched to report the discovery of Teito.
