Hibana has been spending a lot of time with Special Force 8 due to her infatuation with Shinra. Hinawa and Obi notice that the station has become a lot more lively and it is a welcomed change.
The captains of all of the Special Forces have been summoned to the Tokyo Emperor as a result of the Rekka incident in the last episode to discuss what is happening and how the government will resolve the secret organization lead by the Evangelist.
During the meeting, the 7th captain says that they will carry on with business as usual. The Emperor says that he wants the groups to all work together to take down the Evangelist.
Hibana is approached by Dr. Giovanni, the captain of the 3rd, regarding her alliances. She brushes him off and continues into the meeting beside Obi.
The Emperor tells Shinra that his Adola Burst is similar to the power plant that dwells in Tokyo to power the city. Some of the captains from other companies, including the 3rd, want to lock Shinra up so he won’t be captured. Hibana tips Obi off about this. Obi vows to keep Shrina safe from attacks.
Arthur is back at the 8th headquarters. We didn’t receive a reason why he went missing. Perhaps he is undercover for the Evangelist.
Shinra takes a breather after the meeting. He is approached by the stranger, Joker, from the Fire Force Festival earlier in the season. Joker tells him that he needs to pursue the Evangelist to find his brother. His brother is a knight for the Evangelist.
Shinra vows to save his brother from the Evangelist. Fire Force 8 embarks on a mission to review paperwork for leads about the Evangelist in hopes to figure out where and who they are.
Hinawa tells Shinra that whatever is on his mind he should tell Obi if he can’t tell him. Shinra assures Hinawa that he trusts him and has enjoyed his time with Special Force 8. Obi and Hinawa determine that Shinra will do well.
Shinra tells everyone in company 8 about Joker and his brother. He states the company feels like a family. Because of this realization, Hinawa determines that the plan to take down the Evangelist will be centered around saving Shinra’s brother.
We get a glimpse of Shinra’s brother, Sho, in the Evangelists’ shrine room during a ritual before the episode ends.
