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 food and drink, upsetting Ranamon, who has been watching the whole affair 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: "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, your reign is over. I'd say it's been fun, but it hasn't. Fractal Code, digitize! See ya sugar!"
- The 1937 Disney film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs 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 recalls the "Mirror, mirror, on the wall" line, and Ranamon attempts to use a poisoned apple on Zoe as in Snow White.
