Shockwaves are felt from the satellite blast. As the ground shakes, ordinary humans are looking at the sky wondering what's just happened. Tao is wondering the same thing, since the city should have been destroyed. Muzaka is in an ally, coughing up blood and is missing his lower left arm. He comments that he's a mess because he rushed to block the attack and miscalculated the power of the blast. He looks up and notices Rai approaching him. Muzaka asks Rai why he's so surprised. Rai replies that he didn't expect Muzaka to help. Muzaka questions if he didn't expect him to help humans. Muzaka justifies his actions stating that he understands why Rai would be surprised, but this isn't the time for him to consider his personal feelings given the situation. Muzaka stands up as his arm regenerates and his injuries begin to heal. Muzaka tells Rai that he shouldn't be standing there, questioning his motives since he has to hurry. Rai turns to leave, as Muzaka continues that his power can't reach high enough to destroy the satellites, so he can't halve the task that lies before them, but instead he can accompany Rai and lend him a claw or two. Rai is surprised by Muzaka's words. Muzaka concludes that from this moment forward, he'll stand by his side. Rai smiles in gratitude.

Dr. Aris is fighting Takeo. Aris swings her whip at him, Takeo avoids the attack and shoots at her. She blocks the bullets with her whip and tells him that he has no idea how long she's been waiting to meet him and now she's facing him herself, she can feel that his power has increased. She asks if that man gave him that power. Aris gets ready to swing her whip again. Takeo replies she's also gotten a lot stronger from when they last met and fires a succession of bullets at her. She states that she is and asks how he likes her new power. She swings her whip and blocks Takeo's attack. Takeo once again avoids the attack, she comments that she was surprised how strong he and his friends had gotten, so she couldn't just sit back without doing anything, as it'd be stupid for her to be weaker than him or M-21. She enquires how much he sacrificed in order to obtain that power and wonders how much time he and M-21 have remaining. Takeo asks what she's talking about. She responds there's no way his life force is still intact after receiving such great power, and asks whether he has a year left or maybe two. She begins to gloat stating that since his power has increased tremendously, he must have less than a year remaining and questions whether he has a month or two remaining. She laughs that she understands how he wanted to become stronger, but he should have stayed within his limits. Takeo replies that she seems to have the wrong idea and that he's a lot more stable than when she created him. Aris flinches at the revelation and demands to know what he's talking about. She questions the validity of his claims that he's become more stabilised and his life force has increased after gaining such power. Takeo confirms this to be the case. She tells hims it's absurd for him to increase his strength to such a degree in a short time and not suffer any side-effects. Takeo says it's up to her whether she chooses to believe it or not, he's simply stating the facts. Aris' eyes become wide with anger as she grits her teeth. She tells him of the sacrifices she made in order to achieve her power and that he also obtained greater power, without consequence. She shouts it's ridiculous and gathers her power. She yells that she'll kill Takeo and launches a powerful attack against him.
