Renamon hasn't returned yet since leaving with Vajramon, causing Rika to worry over her. Meanwhile, Vajramon asks Renamon to join his cause of taking over the humans.


Rika is having a hard time with her mother, who makes Rika attend a photo session with her. Meanwhile, Renamon has been acting distant and it turns out that she has been meeting with Vajramon, who apparently survived the Tamers' previous battle with them. When Renamon reveals that she has been using Vajramon only to obtain information, the Deva becomes outraged and the Tamers fight him in a second battle. The Deva is defeated when Kyubimon matrix digivolves into her Ultimate form, Taomon.
