Junichi is still doubting about the operation. Akira is saying to him he will do it. Junichi complains about his shaking hands and the blood vomit. Akira has it enough and grabs him by his shirt. They rely on him, but Junichi couldn't do it. Junichi points out that Kouichi will perform the operation, but Akira knows there's a slim chance of success. Akira has seen enough deaths on the island. But he's confident they might save one this time. He asks Junichi one last time. Junichi is speechless. Daigo comes along and points out Hiroki's tragic death. Hiroki believed his father is the best doctor in the right. Daigo wishes Hiroki wouldn't see his father state right now. Junichi gets flashblacks from his son. His eyes are tearing up. Daigo asks Junichi to be the best doctor his son was so proud of.

Kouichi brings the sterilized tools to Junichi. Junichi and Kouichi will perform the operation while the rest are standing outside. Junichi's hand is still shaking. Momoka grabs his hand and holds it steady. She calms him down, because she believes in him. Riongrabs his hand and gives some encourage words. Soon after everyone grabs his hand and their blessings. Akira is the last one who gave his blessing. Junichi realises his hand is a bit warm now. It reminds him about his son again. Junichi walks into the tent and finds Kouichi is ready. Saki and Makiko are there to assist. Kouichi gives Junichi the heads up about Motoko's condition. Junichi uses acupuncture to relief Motoko from pain. Kouichi is impressed of Junichi's knowledge.
