** She's notified first thing in the morning by Miki that someone's shown up claiming they were the new fencing team captain, which understandably riles her up, [[spoiler:and is then defeated in a SingleStrokeBattle by who turns out to be Ruka.]] [[spoiler:Discomposed by her loss]], Juri overhears Miki [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness uncharacteristically teasing]] that she liked Ruka, followed by Anthy recalling she had a thing for Touga who liked Utena, who then expresses that Juri doesn't see it that way when clearly she does. Juri's left in awe, and then subjected to [[spoiler:Ruka ripping her a new one for losing to Utena, that her head isn't in the duels, and that she outright sucks.]] This is coming from the man she emulated as a ''hero'' to hone her fencing skills, and he practically embarassed her in front of her team for the sake of ''teaching her a lesson''. She then witness him giving lessons to Utena with Touga in her ear, rambling about [[spoiler:Ruka]]'s belief that Utena has much more potential than her before "apologizing" for letting that remark slip. Even worse, [[spoiler:Ruka pits her against Utena in a duel for the Fencing Captain position, and she loses]] after realizing he taught Utena a technique he never taught Juri. After that, she overhears [[spoiler:Touga and Ruka conversing and learns that everything was a setup to get her to duel again, and that she truly loves Ruka, but placed her feelings onto Touga because "they didn't have a place to go.]] And after ''that'', [[spoiler:she's back in the arena with Utena and so fed up with everything that she just drops her sword and leaves, leaving Ruka to face her and collapse from his illness just as he comes close to defeat Utena.]] Thankfully, through all of it, she bounces back after learning that [[spoiler:Ruka's intentions were to make her realize her potential.]] However, [[spoiler:even after being informed about Ruka's death, she refuses to believe it, claiming he's "alive in her heart" and that he'll come back some day]]. Life just wasn't being too kind to Juri.

Her locket being destroyed symbolizes her brutal but much needed wake-up call Shiori will ''never'' reciprocate her feelings no matter what she does, and Juri's just going to keep being miserable waiting for it to happen.]]
