Seeds of the future
During episode's ending, a lot things happened during three months after Yusaku's duel against Ai:
Jin Kolter is fully healed and helping Cal during his Café Nom business. Skye occasionally visits them to ask about Yusaku's whereabouts.
Gore'sco-workers during his bounty hunter's days' status are unknown, presumably still active.
Miyu Sugisaki lastly was seen in the hospital, where she was talking with Skye about Aqua. It is still unknown if she is in the hospital or if she fully recovered.
Linkuriboh's current status after Ai's agenda, presumably still living as a Duel Monster Spirit.
Ai, despite being terminated after his defeat against Yusaku, appeared in the episode's last seconds as a digitized version of his "eye" form, saying "Huh?" (a pun of word "Eye"), suggesting he could have survived his own termination.
Playmaker activates the other effect of "Accesscode Talker". letting him banish 1 Link Monster from his GY to destroy 1 card on the field, but for the rest of the turn he cannot banish monsters with the same Attribute to activate that effect. He banishes the EARTH "Transcode Talker" to destroy "Ignister AiLand". Since "Ignister AiLand" in the Field Zone was destroyed by a card effect, its effect destroys all monsters Ai controls. However, the effect of "Gatchiri @Ignister" prevents all "@Ignister" monster Ai controls from being destroyed by card effects once per turn. Since the number of cards on Ai's field has decreased, "The Arrival Cyberse @Ignister" loses ATK ("The Arrival": 13000 → 12000 ATK). Playmaker activates the effect of "Accesscode Talker" again by banishing the WATER "Splash Mage", destroying "Gatchiri" ("The Arrival": 12000 → 11000 ATK). Since "Gatchiri" left the field, its effect lets Ai target 1 face-up monster he controls and make it unaffected by Playmaker's card effects this turn. He targets "The Arrival". Playmaker activates the effect of "Accesscode Talker" again by banishing the FIRE "Proxy F Magician", destroying "Gussari @Ignister" ("The Arrival": 11000 → 10000 ATK). Playmaker activates the effect again three times, banishing the WIND "Exslayer", LIGHT "Linkross" and DARK "Decode Talker" to destroy "Darkwight @Ignister", "AiQ" and "CompromAIse", respectively ("The Arrival": 10000 → 9000 → 8000 → 7000 ATK).
"Accesscode Talker" attacks "The Arrival". As a "@Ignister" Link Monster is battling an opponent monster, Ai activates the effect of the "Gussari" in his GY, banishing it to make the ATK of both battling monsters become 3000 and letting him Special Summon 1 "@Ignister" Link Monster from his GY with a lower Link Rating than his Link Monster at the end of the Damage Step. The attack continues and both monsters are destroyed in a Double KO. At the end of the Damage Step, Ai Special Summons "Dark Templar @Ignister" from his GY to his middle Main Monster Zone. Since Playmaker's Cyberse Link Monster destroyed an opponent's Link Monster by battle, the effect of "Cynet Closure" returns the card it banished face-down to Playmaker's GY. The card is revealed to be "Recoded Alive", and since Playmaker controls no monsters in the Extra Monster Zone he activates its effect, banishing it from the GY to target 1 of his banished "Code Talker" monsters and Special Summon it. He Special Summons "Decode Talker".
Turn 10: Ai
"Dark Templar" attacks "Decode Talker". As an "@Ignister" monster is battling, Ai activates "TAi Strike", making the ATK of that monster equal to that of the monster it's battling and if a monster is destroyed by that battle, the monster's controller will take damage equal to their destroyed monster's original ATK. As a Spell or Trap Card was activated during the Damage Step when a "Code Talker" monster is battling, Playmaker activates the effect of the "Code Hack" in his GY, banishing it to negate that card's activation and increase the ATK of all "Code Talker" monsters he controls by 700 ("Decode Talker": 2300 → 3000 ATK). The attack continues and "Decode Talker" destroys "Dark Templar" (Ai: 100 → 0 LP).
