Henry struggles to allow Terriermon to digivolve again, but is forced to make a decision when Musyamon threatens his friends.
Musyamon tries to Bio-Emerge into the Real World but Henry won't let Terriermon go fight him as he doesn't want Terriermon to fight anymore. Hypnos defeats Musyamon with Yugoth, but Musyamon swears revenge. At the same time Takato beats Kazu in the card game using the same combo he used on IceDevimon and can't wait for another fight so he can use it again. In a rematch, Kazu defeats Takato, so he introduces Kazu and Kenta to Guilmon, but the two run away screaming when Guilmon sneezes. Guilmon senses a Digimon and they travel to where Musyamon Bio-Emerges after destroying Yugoth. Even with Takato's help Guilmon is no match for Musyamon. Henry and Terriermon are nearby, but Henry refuses to intervene until a little girl chases her balloon into the Digital Field. When Musyamon tries to kill the little girl, Henry orders Terriermon to attack. Terriermon saves the girl and digivolves to Gargomon when Henry orders him to destroy Musyamon. As Gargomon he has complete control of himself this time and easily destroys Musyamon and absorbs his data. Guilmon retrieves the little girl's balloon and they return her to her mother who never even noticed she was gone. Henry apologizes to Gargomon for trying to keep him from fighting as he now realizes that some battles are worth fighting. As Takato, Henry, Guilmon and Gargomon run off, Yamaki watches from nearby.

"Suzie's Chamber of Horrors is worse than battling any digimon!"
- -Terriermon on Suzie's idea of playtime.
- During the recap Davis states that Kyubimon defeated IceDevimon, when it was actually Guilmon who gave the final blow.
- The title could be a reference to William Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing."
- This is the only time Terriermon absorbs the data of an enemy. At the end of the battle with Gorillamon, Henry told Terriermon not to absorb his data to see if it would return to the other side, and in the following episode, the Tamers decide to not absorb opponents' data anymore since they don't need it to become stronger.
