While Joe stays home to study for his exams, the DigiDestined and their Digimon go on a trip to a hot spring inn, where they meet Nishijima and Himekawa. During the trip, the girls have a misadventure when Biyomon and Meicoomon are separated from them and wind up in the men's baths. Following the trip, Himekawa and Nishijima direct soldiers to use experimental weapons against an infected Ogremon that manifests in Odaiba but is taken back to the Digital World by Leomon. As Mimi and Meiko prepare for a cheer girl café for the upcoming school festival, Ogremon appears again and they try to fight him, hoping to improve their Digimon's reputation. However, Togemon's attacks inadvertently cause a nearby news helicopter to crash, resulting in negative coverage. Mimi is then berated by Izzy for her selfishness. Following the incident, Leomon approaches the DigiDestined, explaining what happened to Ogremon when he became infected. As Mimi laments how selfish she's been, she hears from Joe that he's been avoiding battles with the Digimon to try cope with adulthood but loathes his own ineptness. As Gomamon decides to run away from home, Izzy receives an ominous message in digital code. On the day of the school festival, Meiko shows Mimi her support by wearing her cheer girl outfit for the café, while the Digimon sneak into the festival to try and win a costume contest for free food. Afterwards, Gomamon tells Joe that he ran away because he felt he didn't want to fight together anymore, causing Joe to angrily storm off. Meicoomon is suddenly captured by what appears to be Ken Ichijouji, who has apparently relapsed into his Digimon Emperor persona. Palmon, Gomamon, and a partially infected Leomon chase after the Digimon Emperor into the digital distortion. As they combat an infected Imperialdramon, Kari urges Joe to fight by his partner's side. After overcoming his insecurities, Joe manages to digivolve Gomamon into Vikemon alongside Mimi who digivolves Palmon into Rosemon. The Digimon manage to defeat Imperialdramon and rescue Meicoomon. However, sensing Leomon's infection, a traumatized Meicoomon changes form, destroys Leomon, and escapes into another digital distortion.
