At the Hirose Family Office, Kiryu breaks the news to them about the return of Someya. They try to debate and figure out the past of Kiyomi, which immediately has Nagumo freaking out. Ino shows up and says that Kiyomi has been kidnapped. It is revealed that it was Someya and his men, Kiryu decides that he should go alone and see what is going on. The Hirose Family boss comes with masks. The group then plans on breaking into the hotel on the hill and saving Kiyomi. Make your way through the hotel looking for Someya. They fight their way out of the lobby to the second floor. From there, the group splits up to check the guests rooms: Matsunaga, Tagashira & Yuta check the rooms on the right path, while Kiryu & Nagumo check the rooms on the left path, fighting goons along the way. They regroup at the stairs and head to the third floor and split up again. It is revealed that he is in the bathhouse. While pressing forward to the stairs, the group is ambushed by Iwase, a yakuza thug. Matsunaga, Tagashira & Yuta stay behind to fend him off in order to let Nagumo & Kiryu continue up to the bathhouse. After fighting enemies there, they check the sauna room. However, while there Nagumo makes the mistake of taking off his mask and revealing his identity to Matsuzoe. Kiryu also takes off his mask when he finds Someya. Instead of choosing to battle, Someya takes off and Kiryu needs to chase after him. Nagumo stays behind and restrains Matsuzoe from running off to alert his allies & tells Kiryu to leave Matsuzoe to him. Once cornered at the banquet hall - Someya sends his goons to fight Kiryu. Matsunaga, Tagashira & Yuta are attacked by Iwase and thrown into the hall and meet with Kiryu once more. They fight & defeat the enemies but more show up. The group decides to hold them off so Kiryu can go after Someya. Kiryu heads to the VIP Suite and confronts him. Someya and Kiryu debate about the values and the new movement of the yakuza culture. Eventually, this leads to Kiryu battling Someya.
After this battle, Koshimizu once again appears out of the suite. He finds a large dining scene with Kiyomi, Tsuneo Iwami, and Someya. Someya tells the members that Kiyomi is his ex-wife. Iwami recognizes that this is all a big misunderstanding, but also says that there has to be consequences for these actions. The last member at the table is Heizo Iwami, chairman of Iwami Shipbuilding. He is also known as Takeru Kurusu, when involved in yakuza activities. They decide to move their discussion to a new location.
Out on a boat, Kurusu reveals that there is a request he has for Kiryu. They want Kiryu to witness the formation of the alliance between the Tojo Clan and the Yomei Alliance. Kiryu refuses out of respect for Daigo and the Tojo Clan. Kurusu begrudgingly accepts Kiryu's answer, letting him know that he doesn't want to waste any time.
The patriarch of the Hirose Family wants to know how the raid went. Matsunaga lets him know that Nagumo ripped off his mask during the mission. Kiyomi is also at the family office and decides to talk to Kiryu about Haruka. She picks up with the conversation regarding Haruto's dad. She believes that there is a high likelihood that Tatsukawa might be the father. Tatsukawa is an ex-member of the Hirose Family, who left the family.
