|While taking Ami shopping, Amu sees a poster that Easter has produced. It says it's starring DL, but DL is really Ikuto under their control. The Guardians decide to go to the concert the next day. They try to interview DL, but security is too strict. While the other Guardians distract the staff, Amu and Tadase manage to get backstage. They find Ikuto, and Yoru attempts to get him, but Ikuto won't budge. He refuses to talk to Amu or Tadase. Security finds Amu and Tadase, and kicks them out. They decide to listen to the concert and protect everyone's Hearts' Eggs. When Ikuto performs, X Eggs are extracted from the audience. The Guardians transform, but only Amu and Tadase go after Ikuto. Yoru joins them, but he can't get Ikuto to come to his senses. Instead, they get hit with powder that inables them to move. Tadase also tries to talk to Ikuto about the past, but he walks off, still under complete control. Amu and Tadase use Platinum Heart to purify the eggs. Amu asks Tadase what exactly happened between him and Ikuto, and Tadase agrees to tell her.|

Tadase, Utau, and Ikuto would play together: sometimes Ikuto would play the violin for them when asked. After the kids' playing breaks a vase, Tadase's mother and grandmother talk about Ikuto and Aruto Tsukiyomi. Early the next morning, Tadase and Betty see Ikuto go off without a word. When Tadase was around his current age after arriving from school, he sees Betty dead, with Ikuto by her side. He asks why, but Tadase sees the Dumpty Key in Ikuto's hands. Tadase's grandmother later falls in critical condition, and since then, Tadase believed his mother's words about Ikuto. In the present, Tadase's unsure of the past now, but things are too vague to really know. They go into a secret room behind the principal's office to see Tsukasa and find him with prepared tea. Tsukasa reveals he took Ikuto away during a bad predicament. He has arranged for someone outside the school to assist them. In Easter, Kazuomi goes to tell Gozen he will have the Embryo soon, but he's not in his office. Kazuomi says that he will get it for Hikaru.|

While the Guardians go to the tower, Rima falls behind, so Nagihiko stays to help her. Rima says she won't hold hands with a liar, as she has heard Nobuko's accurate guess about Nagihiko and Nadeshiko being the same person. Amu, Tadase, and Yaya arrive at a spot where many X Eggs have gathered. The three go on ahead while Clown Drop and Beat Jumper handle them. Nagihiko remembers a time after a recital when he was still disguised.

Later that evening, Ikuto has given birth to Yoru's egg. Tsukasa delivers Alto's violin to Ikuto. They talk about Alto leaving and the current state of the family. The reason why Ikuto left one day is to come with Tsukasa to learn more about his father. During a snowy day in town, Tsukasa realizes that his wallet was lost, so Ikuto plays the violin. This gets the attention of bystanders, who give money. While playing the violin one day, an old woman gives him a photo of Alto. Ikuto cries over this, and as Tsukasa comforts him, Yoru is born. Easter finally finds him, and Tsukasa is too late to get him. In the void, the bubbles flash forward to today: Tadase learns the truth of what happened to Betty. Amu says this isn't Ikuto's would-be self and triggers the full power of the Humpty Lock. Miki, Su, Tadase, and Amu are thrown back to the real world, and Ran also returns.

The scientists tell the gang there is a secret room only accessible by elevator in the Tower. Tadase, Amu, and Ikuto go off thanks to encouragement by the rest. At Gozen's room, Kazuomi presents the Embryo to Gozen, who is revealed to be a boy named Hikaru. He dismisses the Embryo as worthless, and captures the three in cages. The Embryo loses its shine and Tsukasa comes in. Apparently, After his parents death, Hikaru was raised to be the boss for Easter, but he wasn't taught happiness and love. This in turn made his heart empty. Tsukasa shows the young Hikaru a picture book, but he angrily dismisses it as pointless and rips a page out of it. More X Eggs begin to gather, breaking the ceiling of the room. The episode ends in a cliffhanger as everyone looks up at the impending danger.|
