Surrounded by rat yōkai, Yura summons a wolf shikigami who devours two of them. Kyūso, realizing that he is up against an onmyōji, tries acting friendly toward Yura but is immediately rejected. Angered, he takes advantage of Kana's rat phobia and calls forth regular rats to swarm onto her. Yura is forced to dismiss her shikigami and is subsequently knocked unconscious as Kyūso reveals that the two girls will be used as bait.
At the Nura House, Yuki Onna is overly cheerful that Yura has left. Rikuo is distracted by the appearance of a small Errand Rat Yōkai who introduces himself as a retainer of the Kyūso Clan. The yōkai explains that he had witnessed Kana and Yura being kidnapped, and Rikuo rushes to Club ChuChu following the former's directions. Upon arriving, Rikuo is knocked unconscious and he wakes to find himself inside the club, surrounded by members of the Kyūso Clan. Kyūso himself states that his clan doesn't intend to follow or recognize the Nura emblem any longer, and will never follow a weakling like Rikuo. Upon spotting the captive and unconscious girls, Rikuo demands they be released but is roughhoused by the Kyūso Clan members. When Rikuo declares that he has no interest in becoming the Third Head of the Nura Clan, Kyūso tells him to send out a decree by dawn forfeiting any claim to the title, or else Kana and Yura will be killed.
