Yuya, Shingo, Serena, Crow and Shinji are taken to prison.
When they arrive, Jean-Michel Roget has Serena put into a separate cell, and orders the rest of the prisoners to be treated normally, albeit separated. Fortunately, the guards don't pay much attention, and the only order followed is Serena being singled out.
So everybody else is put into a shared cell, which they just so happen to share with Gongenzaka, Dennis, and two lackeys who Gongenzaka has acquired. Kurosaki got into a fight with some other prisoners and is currently in solitary confinement. Prison life is harsh, as cards are used as money, and eventually the newcomers are summoned before the boss of the prison and told to give up their most powerful cards. Yuya refuses, and starts a duel with the boss.
This episode contains examples of:
- Conveniently Cellmates: Notable since the Lancers were specifically ordered into different cells, and it's only the incompetence of the guards that lets them stay together.
- I Owe You My Life: A mild variation. The whole reason Gongenzaka has lackeys is because he bribed the guards to stop treating the two card-less prisoners like shit.
- Institutional Apparel: Everyone who doesn't have a name wears the same blue jumpsuit- even Gongenzaka's lackeys have different-colorer jumpsuits.
- The Guards Must Be Crazy: Jean-Michel Roget specifically orders that the Lancers be placed in different cells. However, the guard in charge was playing a video game when given the order, and completely forgot about it. He personally put all of the Lancers in the same cell.
- Screw the Rules, I Have Rare Cards!: How life works in the prison. You can get away with anything if you have a good enough card-bribe.
- Villain Ball: Why didn't Jean-Michel Roget have all of the Lancers put into solitary containment? Even if he thinks he "has time," he still should have at least singled out Kurosaki, Dennis or Gongenzaka first before the others were caught.
