"Recover the Familial Bond — Evilmon's Bewitchment"
A baker suddenly becomes addicted to gambling, neglecting both his business and his own son. Touched by the boy's devotion to his father, Marcus sets out to speak reason to the man, but he can't imagine that the wrongdoings of Vilemon and his DemiDevimon henchmen are at work.
The owner of a store that specializes in baking white buns suddenly becomes addicted to gambling. For unknown reasons, he has consecutive winning streaks in every bet, all thanks to the prayers he has paid to a mysterious shrine. As the man sinks in his obsession for gambling, he neglects both his business and his own son. Touched by the boy's relationship with his father, Marcus sets out to speak reason to the man, but he can't imagine that the wrongdoings of Vilemon and his DemiDevimon henchmen are at work. While Thomas is studying human emotions, Marcus and Yoshi rush onto the scene. The owner of the store was trying not to disobey his lord, Vilemon, but Vilemon became angry and larger. After being digivolved, GeoGreymon attacked Vilemon and reverted him into a digi-egg. As for his henchmen, the DemiDevimon, who were actually flying away, GeoGreymon attacked them all and they were brought down to their doom by a Mega Flame.
