Continuing from the previous episode, Tari and Theo, now in the real world, are confronted by Lucks, who attempts to sweet-talk them into working for them. Tari refuses and, with a distraction from Theo, manage to escape the TAS Corp. buliding and heads into Silica City. Belle attempts to pursue, but Lucks holds her back to avoid arousing suspicion, instead securing what they have and telling her to leave the pursuit to him.
After running for a few minutes, Tari and Theo try to figure out a plan when Theo wanders off for a bit asking for hints to the "level". Tari pulls him into an alleyway and explains they're not in a game and in real danger without game powers. After a tense minute, the two duck into a nearby building called The Hive.
The Hive turns out to be a cybercafe where they find streamng pods, and they decide to get inside one to hide until things cool off. Tari then has a flashback of Dr. Sheridan and her memories all while Theo starts to stream, catching Belle's attention. Then Belle comes in to the building and attempts to capture them, but Theo and Tari manage to escape to 2 separate rooms.
In the room Tari’s in, she calls out for Theo until Belle finds Tari in the room and captures her. Meanwhile in the other room, Theo manages to fight off the TAS Corp. scientists and sees Tari get captured. Theo is feeling depressed and hopeless, until Lamar Williams comes up and promise to help Theo to rescue Tari from Belle and the TAS Corp..
