Ferid and Crowley joke about the kids' taking a long bathroom break while Mitsuba reports that the exits at the rest stop are clear. Shinoa teases her, saying that she is using that as an excuse for taking a dump. Shinoa says that Ferid, Guren, Mahiru, and the Demon Army are all equally untrustworthy. They can only trust their friends inside the rest stop.
In the boys' bathroom, Yu rants about Guren taunting them with information but never giving them answers. They tell Yu to quit shouting. Yoichi mentions that Yu has started acting like his old self since he received that medicine. Yoichi says Yu had been acting colder since his demon took over.
They discuss their situation and the Seraph of the End. The humans break a specific taboo, such as reviving the dead, and earn divine wrath from God. After that, an "Angel of Destruction" appears and destroys the world. The humans were greedy for this power and actually managed to control these angels for themselves.
Changing the subject, Shinoa asks how the boys use a urinal.
Going back to the topic at hand, they decide they must betray Ferid before he betrays them. Mika tells them they are not capable of killing him. Yu mentions that Asuramaru may be able to kill Ferid if Yu lets him take control for three seconds, but Shiho says demons are even worse than vampires. Shinoa mentions they cannot trust a single adult that is still alive.
They crouch together and whisper to come up with a signal of when to attack Ferid en masse.
Meanwhile, Ferid bemoans that the kids still have not come out. Crowley asks where they are really going, and Ferid confesses to lying about taking them to the place of the Seraph of the End experiment. He reveals he is actually taking them to Osaka Bay to rendezvous with Guren.
In Tokyo Bay, Lest Karr arrives on a cruise liner and mentions punishing the humans and Krul Tepes.
