Plot Summary[]

Episode Recap[]

It's Christmas time and the Dolphin is just outside of Paris where the Cyborgs are celebrating under the deck. But 003 has decided to visit her home city alone. She visits places that bring back old memories. Unaware, she is followed and stuck with a needle that makes her enter a dream world where she's forced to confront her very own wishes and nightmares. In this dream state, 003 meet her old friend that forces her to dance. Then the surroundings turn into demons, which she must fight; even her brother shows himself just to melt down. Eventually 009 become worried about her when she doesn't show up at the meeting point. A strange airplane leads him to a ruin where he can see 003 dancing between huge holes on the floor. He stops her from falling down in a hall and wakes her up. Dr Gilmore analyzes the needle and makes a statement that this was an act from BG. They want to show the heroes that they shouldn't feel alone wherever they are.
