A boy has been abducted, and Higuchi firmly believes that Tsukada is the perpetrator. Following the leads found at Tsukada's home, Higuchi ventures to an abandoned factory, all while the boy's safety is at risk.
Higuchi, abducted by the white-faced man, wakes in a dry well. He radios ECU for help, but interference stymies Hikari's team. Meanwhile, a voice from the speaker mounted in the well forces Higuchi to confess his past crime as a police officer.
Higuchi embarks on an investigation suspecting a link between the white-faced man and a previous case, while ECU responds to a call reporting an assault on a man by a girl covered in blood at a haunted location.
