Ken comes face to face with his kidnapper, while Davis and the others are hot on the trail. Though, Daemon's servants aren't far behind, and the DigiDestined are soon caught up in a fight to the death.
After Ken is taken away by Arukenimon, the others followed her truck to retrieve him. Yolei and Kari were battling LadyDevimon and Silphymon killed her in self-defense, as Shakkoumon did to MarineDevimon. Both Yolei and Cody are shocked at the fact that their Digimon killed another one, but Kari and T.K. respectfully know they did the right thing to prevent any causalities. Meanwhile, Ken learns more about his past, Oikawa, the Dark Spores, and he found out that he kidnapped the kids, saying they wanted to come. He then makes copies of Ken’s spore and transfers it to the kids. The Dark Spore made kids smarter and made them good at sports. Oikawa’s truck was still being pursued by Davis but suddenly Daemon appears in front of the truck!
