With the apartment cleared, the girls refresh themselves in the bath playing about with Shizuka's breasts, whilst Takashi and Kohta check the weapons and ammunition in the household as Hirano suggests peaking in the bath. Meanwhile, the police at the blockade are coming under pressure from both the zombies and the civilians trying to escape them, including a group of protesters lead by a Conspiracy theorist who believes the epidemic is a biological weapon of the US and Japanese government. With no help coming from headquarters, the police are ordered to use deadly force to maintain order at the blockade. Back at the apartment, Takashi has to deal with a drunk Shizuka, who sexually teases him and Kohta. After an argument between them, Rei starts to come onto Takashi, but he holds her back. Just then, a dog starts barking outside, which starts to attract the zombies.
