SynopsisEdit

Bara, one of the Bomb Devils, arrives at Greed Island with a plastic bag containing the severed head of Puhat. He uses it as a warning for them to show up with the 81 cards. He then orders for a "Leave" Card, in order for him to leave the game. When the request is declined, he states that all the Bomb Devils should be present in order to deactivate the bombs planted within the body of the players. The alliance members are convinced and Bara receives a "Leave" Card. But before leaving, he informs the players present that they (the Bomb Devils) would need "Leave" Cards once more in order to return after they deactivate the bomb and orders them to keep three cards ready.

Nickes arrives before Genthru with his ring, which carried all the cards. He states that Jispa died because of his injuries. Genthru ignores this news and asks Nickes for the ring. The Bomb Devils along with Nickes, travel back to the game to check whether or no the cards were there and to release the bombs. After the Bomb Devils confirm the cards, they go on with there part of the deal, join their thumbs and say "Release". But instead deactivating the bombs, the action actually activates the bombs, killing all the alliance members.

She then proceeds to train them individually so that they could master their respective Nen types (Enhancement for Gon and Transmutation for Killua). Meanwhile, the Phantom Troupe arrive at Greed Island through a boat.
