After saving Mary Zero, she's fallen madly in love with Alex simply because he's the only one who can remember her long enough for it to register in his brain. While fending off weird comments from Mary, Higashi calls him, saying that he's at the theme park and will destroy it. He races there and finds the merry-go-round on fire and even worse a bunch of snipers.
While Alex is pinned down, Higashi spends the time with Sandi. Oddly enough, he asks her out on a date. She accepts in order to call this insane war off. But she's too late, Alex is shot in the throat while fighting off his would-be assassins. Mary Zero tries to save his life by getting help but her power once again ruins everything.
