In the last episode, titled "What I See In That Eye," Nagisa was feeling dissatisfied that Kimizuka was solving the current case when she was the detective and he was her assistant. Later, they arrived at the stadium only to find out that the assailant is inside, targeting Yui.

Back at Yui’s mansion, Fuubi arrived with her backup. Meanwhile, Yui, who was set to perform a song named "Eighty-One," decided to go with "Sapphire Phantasm." Kimizuka and Nagisa were desperately looking for the assailant.

With the help of Nagisa, Kimizuka managed to find the location of the attacker who was positioned on the second-floor balcony armed with a crossbow. Meanwhile, in the middle of her performance, Yui removed her eyepatch to reveal her left eye, which was the sapphire eye.
