They make their way to a cliff edge where Tohka finally finds out what a "date" is and sees why the "mecha people" want to kill her as she keeps destroying a world that is so kind, fun and beautiful. Meanwhile, Origami is given permission to fire only for Shido to push Tohka out of the way and get killed in her place.
