Yuka goes to the Z organization to put a stop to the evil deeds of the ESP. Tono wonders why she chooses this, because of Z's boss being a clone of the ESP. Tono is cut short by Noda who suggests to go back to the present, but Mikan tells him that she wants to see more about the past and her mother to decide to run away with her. The time changes and they hear Z's boss saying that he knows Yuka came to steal his alice, but tells her that the ESP will gain the most benefit if that happens. He asks Yuka to join Z, even if their goals differ and that she will be backed up as long as she doesn't betray them. Shiki explains to Yuka information he received from Kaoru about Z's boss's origin. He is a Miscalculated Clone meaning that he is a son of a clone of the ESP and since the bond is not strong there is rebelliousness. Yuka, learning this, thinks about the ESP and his impact on her, saying that she doesn't want to join to Z. Shiki fully understands and reminds her that he has promised to be by her side protecting her. Yuka hearing this apologizes for complaining, because it was her choice to tread this path. She decides to join Z to fulfill her promise to Sensei and Kaoru. Noda says this all of the past that is needed to be seen and asks about returning to the present. Mikan decides to leave with her mother and as a farewell gift Tono gives Mikan his alice stone, which everyone follows. Mikan looks at Natsume who points at her necklace showing the red alice stone she found and remembers the alice exchange legend. The group then return to the present, but the HSP's office is empty and trashed for some reason.
