Marisa returns to Gensokyo after fighting Sumireko, feeling almost as if the whole thing was just a dream. She excitedly tells Reimu about her experience in the [[Outside World]], though Reimu brushes it off as some mushroom-induced hallucination. Marisa notices an Occult Ball hovering around Reimu, meaning that the Hakurei Barrier is still in danger... but she feels that if she can get another chance to visit the outside, that might not be such a bad thing.

Kasen returns after spending three days outside, and is greeted by Mamizou upon arrival. Mamizou asks what she was doing outside, to which Kasen replies that she was looking for something (though she never found it in the end). At Mamizou's insistence, she explains the nature of the Occult Balls, though she deliberately neglects to mention Sumireko herself.

After collecting a full set of Occult Balls, Ichirin is sent to the outside world. She recounts her experience to Byakuren a few days later, mentioning the amazing scenery and the strange, omnipresent atmosphere that seemed to be denying her very presence there. When she came to, the whole thing felt like it was just a dream; Byakuren speculates that Ichirin went to the world of enlightenment, but it was too early for her to become enlightened herself. (Ichirin thinks to herself that if that's really the case, she'd never want to reach enlightenment as long as she lives.)

Byakuren stores the Occult Balls she's collected in a Buddha statue at the [[Myouren Temple]] for safe keeping. As soon as she turns her back on it, though, the statue mysteriously vanishes. Byakuren is relieved that she didn't end up vanishing herself, briefly muses on where the statue could've ended up... and notices, to her shock, that a new Occult Ball has already found its way into her hand.

Futo successfully collects a full set of Occult Balls, but since they're in [[Senkai]] rather than Gensokyo proper, they fail to activate. Miko takes note of this, and thanks Futo for inadvertently helping with her investigation of the balls. Futo is disappointed that the rumors weren't true, and that she'll still have to keep searching for her tenth plate for the foreseeable future.

With most of the Occult Balls safely quarantined in the [[Divine Spirit Mausoleum]], Miko and Futo find themselves swamped by worshipers begging to be given access to the balls. After lecturing the crowd and sending them away, Miko supposes that someone-- likely [[Sumireko Usami|the shadow]] lurking around the Hakurei Shrine-- has been deliberately spreading more rumors to get the balls back in circulation. She also finds the Lunar Capital orb mixed in with the others, but doesn't realize the full implications of this.

Mamizou returns to Gensokyo and convenes with Kasen. She reveals that she pretended to lose her battle with Sumireko, and that the Power Stone she gave her was actually one of her tanuki underlings in disguise. When Sumireko prepares to enter Gensokyo, the tanuki will signal them, at which point they'll pull Sumireko in and trap her. The narration then goes on to explain the two main methods of crossing Gensokyo's barrier. The first is to be "spirited away" across the border, which is often temporary; Sumireko had been entering Gensokyo via this method until then, which made it impossible to properly retaliate against her. The second is to cross over the border via proper procedures, which has no time limit; this is how they'll trap Sumireko inside.

After Shinmyoumaru returns to Gensokyo, Reimu finds her quaking in terror near the Hakurei Shrine. She has little sympathy for Shinmyoumaru, since it's her own fault that she collected the Occult Balls. The narration explains that Shinmyoumaru never really believed the rumors about getting bigger, but still felt compelled to make sure. In the end, she was just reminded of how big the rest of the world was compared to her.

Having realized that the real Nessie is following her around, Nitori ditches her plans to make money off of her mechanical version and sets up shop near the [[Human Village]]. She sells Nessie goods in addition to letting people have a look at the beast; it's not really scary and most of the viewers are skeptical about it, but it's doing a fine job as a tourist attraction nonetheless. Nitori does regret wasting all that time trying to sell Occult Balls, though.

Satori is confused by how few buttons the thing has. Koishi is happy that she finally managed to scare someone with Miss Mary.

Sumireko returns to the outside world via the Occult Balls, pausing to catch her breath in an alley. She's still not officially released from Gensokyo, though, so she needs to plan a counterattack before she's pulled back. Remembering her original plan to destroy the barrier by fully activating the Occult Balls, she decides to become the barrier-destroying agent herself and bring Gensokyo down with her.
