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.
Ishikawa wakes up, gun in hand, and witnesses Onoda's lifeless body. Higuchi believes that Ishikawa is being set up, suspecting that Onoda and the white-faced man may have had some means of communication.
