Meanwhile, Marmo and Ira were resting outside and enjoying the weather, and Marmo suddenly left. She went to a forest where Sebastian was training. Marmo started walking, however she fell, causing her luggage to mix with Sebastian's. Sebastian went away.

Sebastian went again in the place in hope of finding the luggage, however he saw nothing. Meanwhile in a market, a Jikochuu was shown with Gula. The Jikochuu was easy on them. Suddenly the Jikochuu then started to grow, and was attacking them until a mysterious heroine showed up, calling herself, "Cutie Madame". Sebastian noticed and started panicking. Cutie Madame then performed an attack with her fan by blowing wind as the Cures performed Lovely Force Arrow. The next day, the girls saw that Cutie Madame had appeared in news. The girls then knew it was Marmo, who was Cutie Madame.

After his failure, Sebastian was alone in a room. Alice then appeared. Sebastian then told everything about the Commune and why he had built it, and he said that it was because he wanted to help her. Alice then told him that even if she wasn't strong she knew that Sebastian would be by her side. This made Sebastian happy.
