In order of appearance:
Amulet Fortune and Seven Seas Treasure descend to the tower. While descending, both Amu and Ikuto take note of their new forms. Platinum Royale catches up to them, and Tadase forgives Ikuto. Kazuomi tries to take control of Ikuto, to no avail. The X Eggs gather into one giant X Character. Ikuto promptly rescues Amu from an attack with it by using Emerald Line. Tadase and Ikuto team up, using their attacks to break the giant X Character apart. Amu uses Open Heart to purify the X Eggs. The Embryo shows up, the transformation are called off (with a now purified Black Egg), and the scientists use the Embryo Catcher to get it. Kazuomi takes it and he rushes out to the elevator. More X Eggs appear, the timely arrival of Seraphic Charm and Dear Baby drives them away. Beat Jumper and Clown Drop come in as well. 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, 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.
