Talbot agrees to fix and upgrade the Vongola Rings and asks the Ninth for a room to work on while Tsuna and his Guardians rest. As Talbot fixes the rings, Tsuna, Gokudera and Ryohei are grouped together, talking about the Simon Famiglia that they treated as friends. Reborn tells them that Yamamoto was attacked because he let his guard down and that when they fight the Simon, they should not hesitate even for a moment. Tsuna is determined to not lose in order to clear the name of Vongola Primo.
Just then, Talbot enters the room carrying a bunch of jagged rocks that he reveals to be the Vongola rings. Seeing this, everyone begins to think that that the upgrade failed. However, Talbot informs them that the rings is still on their final stage before rebirth and informs them that Tsuna and his guardians needs to awaken the sleeping souls in the rings by concentrating on their strongest resolution to light up their most powerful flame in one go. Tsuna, Gokudera and Ryohei decide to go for it and starts to focus. However, their resolution is not strong enough and Talbot warns them that the rings will die. When Reborn tells them that their family is waiting for them, the three remembers their friends and successfully upgrades, their rings while Hibari, in another room, succeeds as well...
