After Killua and Gon maintain their Ren for three hours, they get ready to go challenge Knuckle, but Biscuit stops them and tells them to rest for 30 minutes. The two boys are confused, but Biscuit says that she wants them to be well-rested so they can have a good chance against Knuckle, especially since there's only one day left before the deadline. As Gon and Killua talk with each other to pass the time, Biscuit thinks to herself that no matter the outcome of the fight, they will have to accept the results if they give it their all, adding that she will be happy as long as they figure out where they're lacking. In the background, Palm is seen drawing rough sketches of Gon and Killua, stabbing them repeatedly with her pen, and Biscuit realizes that she now has to come up with an escape plan for Gon and Killua as well.
Knuckle is seen kneeling in a clearing as he feeds multiple dogs and assures them that there's enough. Both Knuckle and the dogs sense something, and the latter runs away as Gon and Killua slowly approach Knuckle. Aura swells around the two boys, and Knuckle knows that they are serious now. In the Chimera Ant nest, Youpi finally awakens and he is greeted by Pitou, with Pouf playing his violin and Kite sitting off to the side.
Before they start to fight, Gon asks where Shoot is. Knuckle replies that it's pointless for them to know since he will beat them himself. Gon says that they need both tiles, and Knuckle chuckles, replying that he will tell them where Shoot is if they beat him. Killua points out that he won't be able to tell them if he's unconscious. Knuckle puts on a maniacal smile, but quickly becomes serious, saying that Killua's comment wasn't funny.
Gon's aura swells around him, and he suddenly leaps forward and gets behind Knuckle. As Gon goes to throw a punch, Knuckle easily dodges and throws a hard right, sending Gon far back even though he blocked the strike. Gon feels the impact throughout his whole body and says that if he weren't using Ken, Knuckle's attacks would instantly knock him unconscious. Knuckle calmly stretches out his shoulder, saying that he needs four or five warm-up punches. He tells Gon to watch out and warns him that he will get better as the fight goes on.
Meanwhile, back in NGL, Knov confirms to Netero by phone that the Chimera Ants are still staying inside their nest. Knov asks if they should take action, but Netero tells them to wait since the deadline is so close. He says that the Ants will need to restock on food in about a week, during which time they can take out a few more of their soldiers.
Knov informs Morel that they will wait for the students, but Morel says that he doesn't see the point since they can't count on them for the current battle, adding that they might be useful as bait. Knov asks Morel if he would like to bet on whose students will arrive, and Morel bets 100,000 Jenny on Knuckle and Shoot, adding that if he and Knov both lose, the pot goes to Netero. Knov makes an undisclosed bet of one million, and Morel says that there's no way that happens, in disbelief that Knov would just throw away his money. Knov replies that he enjoys gambling as well, especially when long shots are involved. As the Royal Guards, Squadron Leaders, Queen, and the members of the Extermination Team are each shown, Netero thinks to himself that the mission may not be successful without sacrificing someone.
