Summary

Haida heads home and calls the restaurant to cancel the reservation, however as he hears there will be full price fee for same-day cancellation, he wonders if he can come alone. Haida is the passed by a jogger, who moments later tilts to the side and falls over. Checking on him, Haida is shocked to see its Shachou.

At the hospital, Himuro is first to arrive and Haida tells him Shachou's room. Washimi arrives and informs Haida that she managed to reach out to Shachou's wife and she is coming. After the weekend, at work, Washimi tells Retsuko about Shachou's situation and how lucky he was that Haida was there to call an ambulance. Retsusko is surprised as Haida said he had a friend coming, but Washimi states that Haida said he was free. As they see Haida and Washimi thanks him for the help, Haida starts nervously explaining to Retsuko that his friend cancelled in the last moment and that's why he was free to stay at the hospital. Retsuko tells him that he can prioritize Shachou, even if his friend didn't cancel and realizes that Haida lied about his meeting with a friend.

Ton visits Shachou in the hospital and is glad that he is fine as he heard that Washimi cracked his skull. Shachou guess that Kabae started that horrible rumor. Ton laughs commenting that she starts 90% of the rumors. Shachou brings up the rumor she started about Ton and Tsubone being in love, causing Ton to deny it again. Shachou then comments on the good old days, but feels their time is over and thinks of stepping down to adviser with Himuro replacing him.

The managing directors are not happy with Himuro being the next president as they have been "yes-man" for Shachou for so long. At a meeting they share their disagreement and vote against Himuro. However in that moment Washimi joins them and puts Shachou on the TV screen, and the managing directors quickly change their vote to yes for Himuro.

Retsuko tells Kabae that its not Washimi's kick that hospitalized Shachou and she needs to stop spreading rumors. Kabae then brings out the meeting minutes from the conference meeting few days ago and points out that an ax kick is recorded. Fenneko invites Haido to join Retsuko and her to lunch, however Haida states he is busy and leaves.

In the president office, Washimi prepares tea for Himuro, who likes it and compliments her tea-skills. The managing directors come in, welcoming Himuro and telling him they will do their best to serve him. Himuro appreciate it, commenting he lacks their experience. As they leave, Ton enters and congratulates Himuro on his promotion. Ton comments that in recent years, their performance has dropped and Himuro is their only hope. As Ton leaves, Himuro asks Washimi if she knows whats most important as head of an organization and reveals its the ability to tell who will be obedient.

After walking Retsuko home, Haida receives a message from Fenneko and they go out for a drink. Fenneko knows that Haida stood up Retsuko, as she called the restaurant and they said he paid cancellation fee. As they continue drinking, Haida reveals that he has been into Retsuko for five years and they could have finally be together, however, he wondered how long that would last as it could even end in two weeks. Because of that he feels being friends is enough. Fenneko tells him to not decide when this will be over and since Inui liked him, he can do it. However, Haida states that Inui and Retsuko are different and Retsuko isn't ordinary, and had dumped Tadano and is even legendary idol, while he is mediocre. Fenneko tells him that while he is mediocre if he steps up and stops being afraid, he could have what he wants. However, Haida still says he is afraid.

Fenneko shows a video to Tsunoda, where he is crying and saying he is afraid. Tsunoda then states that he is trash. Himuro and Washimi visit accounting. Kabae points out Himuro to Retsuko and states that her theory is that he and Washimi plotted Shachou's assassination to take his post, but doesn't believe is since he is handsome and looks like a nice guy. Himuro then sees them and heads their way. Retsuno and Kabae panic about their looks, but see Himuro passing them by and going to Haida, commenting they met at the hospital and introducing himself as the new president.
