They stop arguing after hearing Motoko's pain. Kouichi estimates she has less than a week to live. Akira can't negotiate Takashi to operate Motoko right now. Maya suggests to take Takashi's power away from him. The men won't rebel him because he's the only doctor on The Island. They could offer the ones who want to go to Okinawa. Shizuka has doubts about the plan. Maya plans to attack and forces them to see the evidence they have found so far. Still they are outnumbered from Nishikiori's Group. Saki compares Kouichi's strength to 10 adults. They have defeated many various Extinct Animals and this time is no different.
