Nozomi said that she'd like to rely on Kazane, while Kazane replied that she didn't want to become the leader, but she would like to change. Surprisingly, Nozomi knew where the landing spot would be, as if she was reading Kazane's thoughts. Nozomi herself actually was just gazing at Kazane's ponytail, to figure out the landing spot. When they was about to surpass Oshima's room, Nozomi told the next landing spot different than what Kazane thought. Kazane herself tried to catch it but she realized she wouldn't make it in time.

Room 309 finally surpassed Room 104 and obtained the highest score.
