Lussuria complains about having to do siege defense, Bel regrets sending Dino to Japan, Levi boasts about being able to easily take out the Millefiore forces, and Flan mockingly tells Levi to go down and take out the enemy while he watches. Levi takes this suggestion seriously and Flan calls him a "perverted old thunder man", enraging him. Lussuria interrupts them and asks Squalo about their strategy for this mission. Squalo decides to split the group up and orders Lussuria and Levi to guard the castle while Bel and Flan guard the south side and he covers the east loophole. Bel and Flan complain about having to work with each other. Irritated by their bickering, Squalo kicks Levi and gives the orders to move out.
At the Millefiore temporary headquarters, a Millefiore grunt tells a shadowy figure that they have been promoted to supreme commander of the Italy battle. A man standing nearby says that it's only right since the commander is one of the Six Funeral Wreaths. While Squalo is on his rounds, he comes across beaten up Varia assassins. They tell him that Xanxus beat them up because he didn't like the food they brought. While enraged at his boss, Squalo brings out his Box Weapon, Rain Shark, and instantly wipes out a Millefiore ambush team.
