The American government convenes an emergency meeting after a dignitary dies from a Ua virus infection. Alphard ignores Liang's anger over her qualms of killing Canaan. Kenji Osawa, head of Okashi Pharmaceutical, had planned to send the anti-Ua virus vaccine to Shanghai when he was supposed killed in car bomb. This "event" forced the American military to send in B-2 bombers from Guam to bomb the entire Shanghai International Confernce Hall in order to purge the Ua virus in flames and prevent in from spreading throughout Shanghai. Canaan infiltrates the hall, rescuing Maria after fending off several Daedala security forces impending her progress. Canaan and Natsume worked together to hack the B-2's bombing and let the bombs miss the conference hall to save the dignitaries inside while heavily armed PLA soldiers, possibly Special Operations Forces troopers escorted Kenji Osawa safely at the outskirts of the hall. Alphard and Cummings retreat underground with a handful of Daedala security forces, the former already deciding to abandon Liang Ji to let her fend for herself. When Maria and Canaan emerge outside, Canaan had collapsed due to her exhaustive use of her synesthesia abilities.
