The Producer and Takane explains to the girls that the story isn't true much to their relief and suggests not commenting about it until the owner of Elder Records returns overseas to clarify to the public as well. However, the girls become suspicious of Takane's behavior and try to keep an eye on her. While visiting a festival, Chihaya admits to Takane they were actually following her as they don't know anything about her which Takane understands as everyone has secrets to keep for themselves just like Chihaya herself. At 961 Pro, Tōma finally learns of the dirty tricks that Kuroi has been using against 765 Pro while the latter takes an interest of a picture of Chihaya visiting a grave and arguing with her mother. At an event where Takane becomes Police Chief for a day, Takane and the Producer are able to catch the paparazzi after the owner of Elder Records came to apologize to Takane and clarify the truth to the public, ending the transfer story. As 765 Pro celebrate, Takane explains to everyone that her suspicious behavior was because she was contacting the Producer if she ever felt someone was following her. However, Kuroi has exposed Chihaya's private life in a magazine which shocks Chihaya that she loses her voice in rehearsal.
