This Event takes place in the following locations:
Sensei makes his way back to the hotel room but finds the hallway eerily quiet. When he opens the door to check if someone’s still there, he finds the room only illuminated by the TV and Yasu singing karaoke. He silently watches her performance until Touka appears next to him. She tells him that Yasu's been waiting all night to sing and that she stayed behind to watch over her as the rest of the class left to watch the fireworks. Apparently, Yasu didn’t ask the girls if she could sing since she didn’t want to bother anyone. Touka explains that both see themselves as outliers, but where Touka is confident that she can be a part of the class, Yasu doesn’t even consider this possibility, even though she wants to.
Sensei reminds her that the main obstacle to Yasu's successful integration is her religious zealousness. Touka acknowledges this but tells him that, underneath that, is genuine concern for the well-being of the class. He's impressed to hear her speak so fondly of Yasu, with Touka admitting she's a regular annoyance, but was also her first real friend, so she has a soft spot for her. She hopes he will similarly grow fond of her. She invites him to sing when Yasu's finished, but he declines, which makes her question why he's sticking around when there are so many other people who want his attention right now. He remarks that it's because he always finds himself in places he doesn't belong, which Touka remarks makes him an outsider like Yasu and her — People who only "belong" in their own little worlds. Sensei remarks that unlike them though, he didn't build the world he found himself in. Furthermore, he doesn't want to talk about philosophy with her. Moving on, she asks if he delivered the bear to its receipt, which he confirms.
- On a bench outside of the hotel, Miku tells Makoto about her reaction to Sensei's gift. She apologizes through tears, promising that she tried her best to suppress her feelings. Makoto, shocked, tells Miku that it's impossible to ignore your feelings like that. She also admits she was aware of Miku's feelings after her last panic attack and expected something to happen, though not so soon. She assures her that this won't ruin their friendship, but also that she won't just let her "win".
- On a nearby bridge, Futaba nurses a drunk Nodoka as Rin talks to Otoha over the phone about having to keep their relationship secret. With the two of them at an impasse, they decide to talk about it later.
- In Tsubasa's hotel room, Tsukasa has ordered a large spread of food to celebrate her new business relationship with Chinami. Off to the side, Chika discusses her relationship with Sensei with Tsubasa, saying they've been holding back lately. Chika worries if this is a sign that Sensei's losing interest in her, but Tsubasa assures her there's nothing to worry about.
Yasu finishes her performance and is shocked to see Sensei behind her. She apologizes for her performance, but Sensei compliments her efforts, making her smile in the process. She informs him that someone is waiting for him on the roof and he remembers his meeting with Maya. He tries to ask how she knew about that, but when she gives a characteristically vague answer, he drops the topic. He says goodbye, with Yasu advising him to count the number of steps to the roof.
- When Chika speaks with Tsubasa, she mentions feeling as if she's been in that specific room before. This is a reference to The Princess & The Pauper but occurs regardless of if Sensei saw the event, creating a possible continuity issue.
