A short recap of the previous episode
Proclaiming Sherry Barnett to be the most brilliant mind in the Kingdom of Midgar, Iris demanded an audience with her, believing she could be the only person who could decipher the Cult of Diablos’ artifact. Elsewhere, Cid and his friends headed toward a new store whose popularity was skyrocketing after introducing a new delicacy called “chocolates” in the Kingdom.
The store turned out to be a giant mall. A strange girl escorted Cid to the top floor, where Gamma and her accomplices were waiting for him. The latter impressed the former with her widespread business and the generated revenue of one billion Zeni.
Gamma introduced Cid to the newest member of the Shadow Garden named Nu. Cid encountered Alexia fighting a few individuals claiming to be members of the Shadow Garden. The former saved the latter by taking matters into his own hands and later assigned Nu to interrogate the impostor trying to escape.
Iris told Alexia that she considers both the Shadow Garden and the Cult of Diablos a threat to the Kingdom of Midgar. With no interest in the chocolates he bought, Cid passed them to the person sitting next to him, who turned out to be Sherry Barnett.
