The Kiyojūji Paranormal Investigation Squad is having a meeting in the classroom, and Kiyotsugu is beyond jealous of Yura and Kana's recent yōkai encounter. After a few minutes, the group realizes that Rikuo is absent.
Meanwhile, at the Nura House, Rikuo is lying in bed with a fever while Kubinashi, Nattō Kozō and Kejōrō care for him. Zen arrives to assist as well, and talks with Rikuo about the latter's yōkai form. He is disappointed that Rikuo doesn't remember the fight with the Kyūso Clan, having wanted Rikuo's yōkai self to take up the position of Third Head. As Zen leaves to head to a Nura Clan board meeting, he is knocked over by a distraught Tsurara who kneels at Rikuo's bedside and berates herself for having gone to school without realizing he had stayed home.
In another part of the house, the Nura Clan board meeting has begun and the main topic of discussion is the mastermind behind the Kyūso Clan incident. Nurarihyon is annoyed that the council members still won't accept Rikuo, despite the boy having transformed into his yōkai form again, but the Nura Clan's adviser says they should focus on keeping the clan together instead. Nurarihyon asks Gyūki's opinion on the matter, and receives a response weighing both the positives and negatives of Rikuo's abilities and behavior. Several of the other council members glare at him, thinking him to be acting "goody-goody." Nurarihyon discretely asks Karasu Tengu to seek out the traitor, and the latter says he will send his children to do so.
Still in bed, Rikuo stares up at a monstrous bag of ice sitting on his head. The Kiyojūji Paranormal Investigation Squad, minus Yura, show up to check on him and are startled to discover that Tsurara arrived before them. Despite the others accepting Tsurara's quick explanation, Kana remains suspicious of the relationship between Rikuo and Tsurara. Kiyotsugu announces the group's plans for the upcoming Golden Week - they will meet a yōkai professor on Mount Nejireme.
