Yumeji and Merry take Isana to Yui and Engi so that they can meet her dream demon, Pallette, who explains how Mystletainn forced her to make Isana her vessel. Merry wants to send her back, but isn't confident enough to try so with Isana's dreams at stake. Meanwhile, Chizuru confronts Ijima, who reveals his intentions to kill Pallette, as well as questioning Yumeji's abilities, though Chizuru is too conflicted by her duties to Leon to warn Yumeji or Isana. Later that day, Ijima and Mystletainn make their attack on Isana and Pallette, also planning to lure out Chizuru and Leon, but Merry and Yumeji appear to protect them. Mystletainn overwhelms Merry whilst Yumeji's attempt to rescue Parade is thwarted by Ijima, who reveals Chizuru had done nothing to prevent the deaths of other dream demons. As Mystletainn prepares to kill both Pallette and Isana, Chizuru decides to stand in their way to protect her.
