To all the Lancers' surprise, Declan announces a completely unexpected destination for this trip!

Featured Duel: Yuya Sakaki vs. Yoko Sakaki

Duel continues from the previous episode.

Turn 2: Yoko
Yoko ends her turn. The effects of "Smile World" and "Road Raven Red Queen" expire, so "Performapal Helpprincess" and "Performapal Salutiger" return to Yuya's field, and the ATK of all monsters on the field return to their original values ("Salutiger" 400 → 1700; "Helpprincess" 400 → 1200; "Red Queen" 2300 → 2000).

Turn 3: Yuya
Yuya activates "Stargazer Magician" (Right Pendulum Scale 1) and "Timegazer Magician" (Left Pendulum Scale 8) in his Pendulum Zones. Yuya Pendulum Summons "Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon" (2500/2500) from his hand in Attack Position. He then activates "Magical Sky Mirror", which lets him activate a Normal Spell Card from his opponent's Graveyard that was activated during his opponent's previous turn. Yuya activates Yoko's "Smile World", increasing the ATK of all monsters on the field by 100 for each monster currently on the field until the end of the turn. As there are four monsters on the field, so each monster gains 400 ATK ("Salutiger" 1700 → 2100, "Helpprincess" 1200 → 1600, "Odd-Eyes" 2500 → 2900, "Red Queen" 2000 → 2400). "Odd-Eyes" attacks "Red Queen". Its effect activates, doubling the battle damage it inflicts as it is battling a Level 5 or higher monster. "Red Queen" is destroyed (Yoko: 4000 → 3000 LP). "Salutiger" and "Helpprincess" attack directly (Yoko: 3000 → 900 → 0 LP).
