Having just learned that Hitoshi Konoe was behind the attacks on Eitoku students, Tenma Hase remembers when he swore that he was involved. He says to Oto Edogawa, "what have I done."

Kaito Taira cuts him off to inform Haruto about his odds of winning, which is a low three percent.
The pressure of the competition weighs on Haruto as he realizes that he will "have to abandon [his] feelings for [Oto Edogawa]" if he loses. Issa encourages him to lose "elegantly", while Airi Maya promises to provide him an escape route for after his loss. Haruto becomes irritated by his friends lack of faith in him. As the second round kicks off, Haruto notices that looks Tenma distinctly "pale". Tenma shoots his first arrow, which misses.

He defends the loss by saying "[Tenma] was just a little off." Tenma hits Konoe without any warning and tells him "do [not] ever show your face in front of me again."
