Kurapika regains consciousness after being unconscious for 9 hours. Queen Oito had also passed out as her condition is linked to Kurapika's. Kurapika urges Oito to survey Tserriednich, to which Oito cynically asks if Kurapika is acting out of self-preservation. Kurapika justifies himself by explaining that the first two princes likely have Nen users in their ranks, and Oito has already established good relations with Prince Zhang Lei. Prince Woble suddenly shows affection for Kurapika, encouraging her to obey. Oito sends the cockroach through the vents to Tserriednich's chamber, but Tserriednich's Nen beast devours the bug, forcing Little Eye to end. Oito requests Kurapika to teach her Nen, but Kurapika reveals that she has already activated Nen by using Little Eye.
The next day, bodyguards of several princes convene in Oito's room to learn Nen, and each thinks about how to gain leverage in the situation. Prince Benjamin's bodyguard Furykov already knows how to use Nen, but is there to learn about Kurapika. A shadowy figure behind him is watching him, determined to use their Nen ability, Silent Majority, if needed.
