Patty and Shiori disembark from the rover in the hopes of acquiring some new parts to repair it after the last attack, but find to their distress that the city they sought has completely collapsed into the ground, leaving nothing available.
When Carol arrives, both of them are surprised as they thought she had left to find and kill Adam. The Carol who has found them, however, is Adam in disguise. He takes Patty hostage, forcing the real Carol to show up and confront him.
But Adam intends to make good on his word that one of Carol's companions will die the next time they meet. Carol now faces an impossible choice: walk away with Shiori and allow Patty to die of a nervous-system overload, or kill Shiori in order to save Patty's life.
