Zoe faces her past mistakes on friendship in the Water Area, where Ranamon is waiting and determined to finish her off for good. Meanwhile, Tommy and J.P. escape from Sakkakumon.


Zoe, trapped in Sakkakumon's Water Area, is unaware that some of Ranamon's fans, the Honeybeemon, are plotting to trap her. When their traps backfire and Zoe unknowingly helps them, the Honeybeemon grow fond of her and give her nourishment, upsetting Ranamon, who has been watching with Mercurymon's help. Ranamon intervenes with the help of a poisoned apple. When given the apple, Zoe is reminded of her own failing in the past and the callous ways she treated her classmates due to her ostracization. Zoe overcomes these weaknesses, however, and when the Honeybeemon betray Ranamon, Zoe defeats and scans her. An eye portal opens and Zoe escapes from Sakkakumon, rejoining Tommy, Bokomon, and Neemon, as well as J.P., who escapes from the Wood Area by defeating a Cherrymon. Takuya, meanwhile, deals with a Parrotmon in the Thunder Area and heads further into Sakkakumon.

Ophanimon: "The Honeybeemon's speed is dangerous. Luckily, they're not so swift upstairs."
Ophanimon: "If he doesn't get you with his razor-sharp claws, Parrotmon will defeat you with his Sonic Destroyer attack."
Ophanimon: "Cherrymon, evolved from Woodmon. He's like Woodmon's older, bigger, and much meaner brother."

Ranamon: "It seems I have yet another fan. Now tell me, who's the fairest of them all?"
Mercurymon: "Prepare thyself."
Ranamon: "Hey, That's Mercurymon!"
Mercurymon: "It takes not a genius to see that the fairest in all the land is thee."
Ranamon: "Now that's what a girl wants to hear."
Mercurymon: "Or at least, tis what I would have said before the fairest of the fair entered the land, by that I mean Kazemon"
Ranamon: "WHAT!?"
Mercurymon: "And the strongest must surely be Zephyrmon. But I merely repeat what everyone says: That thou couldst never hope to defeat her, milady".
Ranamon: "We'll see about that! She'll go from the fairest to the foulest faster than you can whistle Dixie!"

Mercurymon gives incentive to his fellow warrior.

"Man, I would kill for a cheeseburger. Actually, knowing this world and my luck I'd probably get eaten by a cheeseburger."
"Wait, are those cherries? That's even better than a cheeseburger, cause they're actually here!"

J.P. makes a couple weird, yet very true statements about food.

"Ranamon, your reign is over. I'd say it's been fun, but it hasn't. Fractal Code, digitize! See ya sugar!"

Kazemon scans Ranamon once and for all.

Other Notes[]

Real-world references

  • The fairy tale Snow White is referenced several times. The vain Ranamon asks the mirror-like Mercurymon "Who is the fairest of them all?", while Mercurymon replies that Zoe is the only one more beautiful than her. When Rika recaps the episode, she misquotes the "Magic mirror, on the wall" line, and Ranamon attempts to use a poisoned apple on Zoe as in Snow White.
