Team 5D's has finally beaten Team Ragnarok after an exhausting battle. With this result, the finals will be Team 5D's vs Team New World. With the finals looming, Carly ponders while she writes up her special feature article about Team 5D's.
While preforming the interview, Akiza and company accidentally reconfirm their bonds. In addition, when Carly talks to Akiza, they discuss the relation of their new opponents, Team New World, to the organization of Iliaster and the trio's schemes, causing Carly to gain unthinkable information. When Carly was finished typing all of the information down, Stephanie comes in with a teapot full of hot coffee. She trips on a wire and the coffee spills all over the computer, erasing all of the files and ruining Carly's report.
Most of the cards featured in this episode are from flashbacks.
After flashbacks of Bruno were shown in the interview with the twins pondering about his origins, Bruno is seen sneezing, a common superstition in Japan which indicates one talking behind the sneezer's back.
