In a shocking turn of events, Meikūmon terminates Leomon, and vanishes into the distorted abyss. Shaken, Taichi and the others can't hide their unease. "If Meikūmon has been infected, I want to know what caused it. Was there some kind of sign? When did he get infected in the first place?" Koshirō agonizes about whether there is some kind of countermeasure they can take in this unaimaginably grim situation.
However, when he can't find anything useful, he goes to Meiko to try and gain more information. "Please try and remember. We need information in order to discover the reason behind the infection." Having lost all emotion, Meiko is unable to answer. Koshirō quarrantines Agumon and the other Digimon in the office so that the infection can't spread any further, but Patamon starts to show signs of the illness...

Agumon and the others use Hikari's voice to tell the team about an important secret concerning the Digital World.

"The time... is coming..."

During the rematch with Meikūmon who will appear once again, that "time" will arrive. Taichi and the others' hearts ache when the secret is revealed to them. Despite their entangled feelings, they make a decision...

"If we wait around for 'someday,' we'll become adults before you know it."

Now, the adventure evolves again...

On a dark night, the Japanese police is raided by a spy. Different countries' intelligence agencies—such as England's MI6, Germany's BDN, and America's CIA—as well as the FBI's secret files are going to be taken, but public safety officers lead by Tooru Amuro arrive just in time. The spy steals a car and escapes. The spy and Amuro are then locked in a dead heat on the highway, and just as it is about to cause an accident with multiple cars, the spy's car is hit by FBI agent Shuichi Akai's rifle bullet and falls of the roadway.
The next day, Conan and his friends go to a newly-remodeled aquarium in Tokyo. Under the main attraction, a Ferris wheel, Conan finds an attractive woman alone and injured. Her left and right eyes are different colors.

But the woman is in a state of amnesia where she doesn't even remember her own name, and the cellphone she's carrying is broken. Conan and his friends promise to help her regain her memory, so they stay with her.

Throughout all this, Vermouth is watching behind the scenes. Afterwards, she pulls out a silencer and speaks into an attached intercom, "It's as planned, Gin."
