With Haruka given rest from her work, her friends begin worrying about her. A few days later, Haruka does an errand for her mother until she meets Tōma and Jupiter who are under a new company where they get to know their stage crew thanks to what she and 765 Pro taught them. After consulting with the hospitalized Producer, Chihaya gathers the rest of the idols and tells them why Haruka wanted to do dance rehearsal with everyone; Haruka realize everyone was drifting afar and losing their true selves due to their work and she wanted to do the rehearsal to reunite the bonds they always had. Meanwhile, Haruka meets a group of kindergarteners and sings with them until she remembers why she became an idol when she sees a younger self of her who brings her to the stadium where the 765 Pro Thank You Concert was held. Haruka remembers that she became an idol to sing, dance and make people happy together with her friends which her younger self, now looking older when she became an idol, ensures Haruka that her friends believe in her.
