As Sakura continues to wait for Yumemichi to appear on stage while Shizuko is freaking out on her, Misaki and Usui decide to enjoy the festival together, and end up joining a contest called ‘Love Trial.’ The prize is a premium ticket to the post-festival event, and the only rule is that you must never let go of your partner’s hand or be disqualified. They win the test after doing many challenges, with them earning a crowd as they are amazed with their skills. With the live performance over, Misaki finds Kuuga incognito, as he is running away from the crowd. Misaki finds him really serious about Sakura, but still doesn’t trust him; as he leaves an important message. That night, Usui and Misaki decide to use the ticket, with the special service being cosplaying as Romeo and Juliet. The episode ends with Usui kissing Misaki in an empty classroom as the bonfire is lit and fireworks explode outside; and the two of them are later seen walking away holding hands.
