It later turns out that the Calamity had already started back in April with the death of Mai's cousin/sister, so the charm wouldn't have worked anyway.]]

When Teshigawara accuses her of being the extra student, she decides to mess with him and say that he could be the extra. When they look for [[spoiler: the tape]] and talk about TheSevenMysteries, she jokingly confirms one.
