The battle between Teppei and Keich took place during the Hinamizawa’s festival.

When the festival is about to end, detective Oishi shows up being passed by Oyashiro’s curse. He confronts Reka telling her that he has solved the mystery. Oishi grabs Reka back her neck with the aim of killing her.
The old man from the village started to break the two, but he started to kill them using his gun. Oishi reveals that he knows the truth behind Oyashiro’s curse, and Reka, on a neck choke, is trying to free herself. Due to the power of the curse, Oishi said that Reka is the one behind all those mysterious deaths. Oishi started rampaging, killing hundreds of villagers in a single hit. Reka decided that there is no time to argue; she has to stop everything.
Mion shows up trying to destruct Oishi, saying that she is the next head of the Sonozaki family she will listen to him. Oishi looks back, and Sion jumps in, pushing Oishi and free Reka. Mion witnessed her elder sister getting killed in front of her as she was trying to save Reka. Oishi killed Shion by stomping on her chest and then shots her. When Mion tries to fight back, she got shot on her forehead and died instantly.
Oishi grabs Rika by her long hard, asking her to tell him the truth, and Rika is just shocked. She asks herself why a beautiful world has to end like this, and Oishi points a gun at the side of her head. Realizing that many lives have been lost, Reka said that she wouldn’t reveal the truth behind the curse. She swears that Oishi will die without knowing anything. Oishi took a bat and started to beat Rika, telling her to talk, and Rika wakes up in another world.

Later the students reunite again with Keichi. They play hide and seek, and the world is back again in peace, and Sakoto’s issues have been resolved. Rika suggests she is going to hide, and if they don’t find her, she will go home by herself.
They both enjoy playing the game, and they have trouble finding Rika. She is an expert in hiding, and they look for her until sundown, and Keichi started to wonder what is happening. He realizes that Rika told her that they wouldn’t be able to find her. Satoko reveals that Rika has been acting strange ever since in the morning, and something might be troubling her.
Mion, Rena, Satoko, and Keichi said that they wouldn’t give up on her they will look for her until they find her. They end up covering the old ruins that she is hiding inside. They yell that it is game over for her and she must come out right now. Rika heard everything when she is inside, but she was crying about something.
