A Corrupted Heart

The episode starts with Bel, who was eating a lollipop, joking with Leva and Gula because of their failures. Much to their annoyance, they claimed that they had another plan, which could work.

Suddenly, in the town, some mysterious balls started coming, and then the balls were absorbed in the people's bodies, putting them to sleep. Meanwhile, Mana, and the others were doing experiments with their Pad to try to get it to work. But even with Ai's power they can't do anything, and once Mana announces she is hungry, she invites her friends to join her at her place to get something to eat.

It's then a ball heads towards Mana, but her Lovead protected her from becoming infected. Then the TV screen became distorted and Leva and Gula appeared, explaining their plans. They said that in the main bulding in the town, a Selfish tree was made. The balls made from it put people to sleep, and as time passs their hearts will completely blacken and turn them into Jikochuus, bringing about destruction to their world.

Cure Heart crying out her wish.

With the broken Pad, the girls lost hope, and Cure Heart cried, finally understanding what it's like to have her home in ruins, while Leva and Gula taunt her. The hearts of the citizens completely blacken. 

However, Cure Heart brought herself to her senses and gathered the pieces. With hope left in her heart, Cure Heart said she would do everything to save the people of the town. She places her hands over her heart and cries out her wish. With the girls seeing this, they gather and state that they will never give up, and to their surprise they watch as the Pad starts shining and the pieces of the Pad turn into individual Magical Lovely Pads.  The Cures' strength is restored and Aguri transformed into Cure Ace once more. With their newfound weapons, they performed Lovely Straight Flush, which defeated the tree and Leva and Gula; thus breaking the curse placed over the town.
