After being returned to Earth, a conference is held where the Xilians' miracle cure will be revealed. Instead of a cure, however, the Xilians order for Earth to surrender and become a colony of Planet X. The Xilian leader threatens to unleash Godzilla, Rodan, and King Ghidorah if the Earth does not surrender. Following this is a montage of riots and civil actions around the world as the Xilians begin taking over. Glenn is wandering through an abandoned office building when he encoutners Namikawa, dressed like an Xilian. "That's what I figured," Glenn says to her. Namikawa begs Glenn to side with the Xilians so that they can both live together, but Glenn tells her that Earth will fight to the very end. The two lovers are soon interrupted by a squad of Xilians, who tell Glenn that he is under arrest. Namikawa rushes over to tell Glenn that she loves him, slipping a note inside his pocket as she does. After this display of affection, Namikawa is pulled away from Glenn and vaporized.
