In episode seven, Hatchin quarrels multiple times with a group of boys who charge 'fees' for using the river. After she nearly drowns in a swimming match trying to get her stuff back, the boys rescue her and bring her back to her hotel. Her belongings are sitting neatly beside her when she wakes up.
Michiko to Hatchin has the scene in which Hatchin refuses to let go of an unconscious Michiko who is hanging on a hot air balloon over sea, which signifies that she has started to care for her after all. Wet suits ensue.
