Given the unfavorable situation, Katori Unit makes a tactical retreat, only to get into a firefight with Kakizaki Unit. The fight intensifies when Osamu and Yūma join the fray by attacking Kakizaki Unit from behind. As things heat up, all units decide to pull away from each other and regroup.
By using Osamu's Spider, Yūma launches multiple rapid attacks on Wakamura, with the latter being unable to keep up. Seeing the situation as unfavorable to them, Miura suggests the rest to make a tactical retreat. Kakizaki Unit arrives at the battle site and chooses to attack the wounded Katori Unit since they have very little information on Tamakoma Second's new tactics. Tomoe manages to distract Katori Unit such that Kakizaki could attack them when their guard was down. Katori tries to rush in, but Wakamura stops her which leads to an argument. Since the rest are unable to come up with a solution, Somei orders them to retreat into the open. At that moment, Osamu and Yūma take the opportunity to attack Kakizaki Unit from behind and forces them to retreat as they were attacked on both ends. Taketomi and Izumi explain that Katori Unit predicted that Tamakoma Second would make a move, and had they stayed still, they would not have been able to earn enough points to move up the rankings. After their brief encounter, Wakamura criticizes Katori on her hasty actions, but Katori points out that it had no net effect. She claims that they protected her because they had to. As Osamu sets up more wires, Kakizaki Unit decides to go after Katori Unit and avoid Tamakoma Second altogether while Katori Unit decides to launch an ambush by drawing Kakizaki Unit into the open. However, Chika shoots the building under which Kakizaki Unit is taking cover, shocking both Kakizaki and Katori Unit.
