Shoichi Irie frantically asks Byakuran about Leonardo Lippi, to which Byakuran replies that he was Mukuro Rokudo. Byakuran then informs Shoichi that the Vongola were most likely conducting a world-wide attack on various Millefiore bases. Shoichi then dismisses Byakuran's offer for reinforcements, and states with resolve that he would take the Vongola Rings.
In the Vongola base, Kyoko and Haru coo at Uri, commenting on its cuteness. Gokudera apologizes to Tsuna for destroying the reference rooms wall while training. Bianchi then enters and sarcastically compliments Gokudera on skipping his training and looking after his new "pet". Gokudera defiantly states that he already understood Sistema C.A.I. Ryohei then bursts in and gathers Tsuna, Gokudera, and Yamamoto for a meeting about blueprints of the Millefiore base, courtesy of Mukuro, unbeknownst to them. Tsuna sees a black spot on the map, and immediately recognizes it as the white, round machine that he saw in his dream.
At the Millefiore base, Shoichi announces to all the Millefiore members in the base that he is their commander. Gamma objects, but Genkishi suddenly appears and announces that anyone who opposes Shoichi, and by extension Byakuran, will be executed.
