A Quick Recap!
In the previous season finale, Momoka and Asahi wandered through the abandoned city and recorded videos with a cell phone. In the present, Arisu confronted Aguni, who believed he was the witch, and manipulated him to shoot his best friend Hatter. But the real witch was Momoka, who sacrificed herself. While Aguni attempted to kill Niragi, believing she killed everyone, the rest of the players threw Momoka into the fire and won the game.
Chishiya collected the card while Usagi and Arisu watched Asahi’s video, who committed suicide in the middle of the game. In that video, Momoka and Asahi revealed that they were the dealers who organized games for their visa extension. They also saw an underground lair where gamemasters resided. But when Arisu and Usagi went there, they found the gamemasters dead. Later Kuina and Chishiya appeared and revealed the gamemasters were the players. Before they could deal with the matter, a woman introduced them to a new game set.
