Ritsuko gets a call from fellow nurse Kiyomi, who is panicked about someone trying to kidnap her; then the line goes dead. She calls Dr. Ozaki to let him know, then heads out towards Kiyomi's place. As she runs, she reflects on the past week.
A week earlier, the nurses were turned away from the kitchen at Kyouko's wake. The other villagers were afraid of being infected by the nurses. Nurse Sato then had a fight with Takae Ozaki, and ended up in tears over the disappearance of nurse Yuki. Sato quit her job after that.
The Asa family brings their son to the Ozaki Clinic with the typical symptoms of anemia. The doctor tells them that it isn't a disease, and so he can't do anything. Later, nurse Ritsuko asks what he meant. She wants to tell him about her encounter with Nao, but can't manage it. The doctor considers introducing her to Natsuno and letting her in on their plan.
Ritsuko sees Kiyomi in the window of the Kirishiki moving van as it passes. Toshio finds her slumped at the side of the road, in the dazed state of one who has been bitten.
