Hikaru visits Toya at the hospital again, hoping that he would not retire as a professional Go player. Toya clarifies that he would retire but not stop play altogether. Ogata overhears their conversation and interrogates Hikaru if he knew Sai's identity. Akira also appears, wondering the same thing. Toya manages to keep his arrangement a secret from both Akira and Ogata. Hikaru is unaware that Sai will soon no longer exist, who has fulfilled his purpose to pave the way toward the divine move.
