(more)discover that Seijuro and Natsumi are really aliens by testing a twig caught in Usagi's hair. Later, Usagi runs into Mamoru outside of the apartment and tries to convince him not to visit. When he doesn't believe her, they end up going together. Natsum traps Usagi in the room with the Doom Tree and a cardian.
