Hisoka begins his hunt for two more plates. He stalks Kurapika and Leorio behind some bushes while Gon follows closely, worried for his friends. Hisoka reveals himself and demands both of their plates. Leorio is afraid, but isn't willing to give up without a fight. Kurapika notes that neither of their plates are Hisoka's target. He is willing to give up one of their spare plates that are worth one point, but he isn't willing to give up their own plates without a fight. Hisoka agrees and lets them go, leaving himself with only one point to go.
Gon is worried he won't get a chance to steal Hisoka's plate if his next adversary also gives up without a fight. Hisoka's blood-lust gets the better of him and he desperately needs to find someone to calm him down. Gon notices the drastic change in Hisoka's expression. He decides that in order to steal Hisoka's plate, he must get to Hisoka's next target before Hisoka does. He hides patiently behind some bushes, waiting for their confrontation.
