Rai sits there sipping his tea. Outside in the playground, he wonders if he really is staying there for his job. The Janitor arrives and tells M-21 that he has changed over time and that he never used to smile.
At the ex-Union base, Tao is all alone and finds information about Ik-Han. He is glad that it's a young boy and not some old geezer and decides to pay him a visit. Elsewhere, M-21 is confronted by Shark and Hammer. M-21 is shocked when he hears his code name and realizes that they are from the Union. Shark tells him that they are from DA-5. It is revealed that DA-5 is a special faction within the Union which kills the groups opposing Union and unlike the assassination squad, DA-5 fights more openly.
