Benimaru continues his rigorous training with the Company 8 newbies, much to Tamaki's discomfort at them Overheating. Reaching his limit and continuing to fight, Shinra's consciousness starts to fade, and he finds himself surrounded by Acala's flames. Through the flames, a hand rummages through, and it appears to be his mother, to which he then sees his Demon Infernal mother holding a baby Shō. He then starts to have a inner realisation that there is only one life, and that he requires the energy to take down his enemies in order to win. Having a sudden survival instinct, he confronts the Pressure of Death, and seemingly awakens new powers, much to Benimaru and Tamaki's surprise. Back in the Guardhouse, Kayoko distinguishes that Konro's flames are normal, but that there must be a connection between the Great Cataclysm that happened two years ago in Asakusa and also the one that involved Sōichirō Arg. After Hibana asks about the difference between the Adolla Burst and normal flames, Kayoko solemnly looks down at her scarred hand from healing Shinra way back after the 8th's trip to the Nether. Realizing that all the stigmatics whom were scarred from having an Adolla Link are in danger of being captured by the White-Clad, they venture off to see Hague; who is fighting off against a self-proclaimed "butcher" White Clad with a golden arm.
