After the events of the attack in the previous episode, Hajime decides that the G-Crew should go public and reveal themselves to the world as a way to draw out Berg Katse. Meanwhile, Rui is locked out of the GALAX network and loses control of X after Berg copies his form. Berg then plots to use GALAX to create what he calls the "Neo Hundred" posing as Rui. Rui then learns that the users of the CROWDS that participated in the fight with Berg are all in the hospital after their avatars were destroyed and that fear and distrust over GALAX is beginning to surface.
