[[Patrica]] reveals that she kept some of the [[grief cube]]s from the incident after sensing something strange about them, and [[Kyouko]] tells her to inform [[Yuma]] through the plushie, which turned out to be enchanted as a [[telepathy]]-enhancer.

Finally, [[Kyouko]] gives a sermon on the terrible fate the [[Goddess]] saves [[magical girl]]s from, and announces that the church will be updating the statue of the [[Goddess]].
