After the incident at the school, the whole town hears rumors pointing to Mob's abilities and his fight with Teru. Mob's brother Ritsu Kageyama is followed around by various people interested in him and his brother's powers. Ritsu is not happy about this because he curses his own lack of ability to use ESP. The leader of the Telepathy Club, Tome Kurata, takes an interest in the psychic fight and tries to get Mob to identify other Espers in public. Salt Middle School's Student Council president, Shinji Kamuro, confides in Ritsu to frame local gang leader Tenga Onigawara for stealing and being a pervert. Later, Ritsu tours a psychic research institute known as the Awakening Lab, but the subjects have very minimal ESP abilities. At the end of the episode, Ritsu accidentally bends a spoon psychically and sees the ghost of Dimple who is apparently still "alive" somehow, these incidents reveal Ritsu does in fact have a hidden psychic ability, just like his older brother Mob.
