The episode opens with a series of Meg's flashbacks, which wakes her up from her sleep. In the hideout, Shiron is wide awake and asks himself why he can't banish the unhappy feeling he has.

The next day, Shu and Mac are late for school again, and Mac rides on Shu's scooter together, but it loses balance due to Meg not being on the board as well. Meg, being late because of the nightmare, is picked up by Zuou to go to school, but reacts aggresively towards Zuou's action. Meanwhile, Halca rides on her motorbike with her father's journal, telling herself that she should ask Shiron about some enquiries she has.

After arriving at school, Zuou releases Meg and she demanded why he follow her, and told him not to follow her. Shu, Mac and Shiron then crashed into the classroom and the other students are playing Legendz Battle, but Meg scolds them. Halca then walks in and asks Shu to get Shiron, but he is not present. Meg demands Halca to start the lesson, which she agrees reluctantly. Meg then spotted Zuou and scowls at him.

In DWC, the fake president contacts Ranshiin, but he simply smashes the contacter in annoyance. BB then walks in and the president berates her, in process also mystifies her more about the Legendz topic. The trio then walks to work.

Shiron, outside on a tree, thinks about Ranshiin but can't figure out anything at all. During lunchtime, Meg pulls Shu away to prevent Halca. They then discuss about the journal and the things they went through. While Shu and Mac (pretend to) play throw and catch, Meg confesses to Halca about her growing fear of Legendz.

After school, Zuou once again takes Meg away and Shu and Mac chase after him, and Shu loses them and ends up near a factory area. The DWC trio then appear and BB reborns Chimera to fight Shiron. The two Legendz then have a hard fight, while Meg tries to run from Zuou, who is trying to protect her. Halca then arrives with Mac, and Meg expresses her hate towards Legendz.

At the end of the episode, Ranshiin reborns the Skeleton.
