Seishin continues to be plagued with doubt about what he should do about the attack of the Shiki. Seishin's father Shinmei goes missing. Seishin realizes that his father knew about the Shiki and invited the Shiki to his room, on the condition that they leave Seishin's and his mother's room alone. Kaori visits Seishin asking for a posthumous name. Her mother and father have died, and her brother has disappeared. Kaori believes that Megumi will kill her next, and she has already dug her own grave. Seishin tells her that she should still try to live. Seishin makes a decision and leaves the temple. Meanwhile, Ritsuko receives a call from one of the nurses, Yasuyo - the nurse has been taken hostage. Ritsuko runs to save her, but on the way, she passes a truck with the gagged nurse. Ritsuko stands there in the middle of the road as two Shiki approach her. Ozaki reaches Ritsuko too late - she has already been bitten. Alone in his hospital at night, Chizuru visits Ozaki. She reveals that Seishin has decided to serve the Shiki and visited Sunako that day. Ozaki tells Chizuru that he wants to survive to see the village die, and she bites him. Chizuru orders him to burn all evidence of the deaths.
