Inside a storeroom of a big castle, Killua and Gon have met up with Knov, Knuckle, and Shoot. They get told that Kite is in the floating cage next to Shoot and that he isn't the same anymore. Gon replies it is okay and that they will put him right. The cage is lowered to the ground and the gate on it is opened as a tiny Kite slowly walks out of it. Shoot explains that this cage is his ability, Hotel Rafflesia, which allows him to trap either individual parts or a person's whole body after he has dealt it a certain amount of damage. He goes on to state that once released, a person will return to their normal size. Killua immediately understands what happened to his eye earlier. Shoot warns them to be careful, for even though Kite can't use Nen, he is still is an adversary.
Kite returns to his normal size and his arms, hands, and torso are covered in scars. A strange aura comes from him which surprises Gon and Killua. Kite grinds his teeth while looking at them from beneath his long hair. His face is also scarred up and one of his eyes is slacked over while the other is bulging out. This shocks and saddens Gon, who sees Kite in full looking like a rag doll, and Knuckle explains that they assume he was being used as a training tool for the soldier Ants because he automatically attacks anything that approaches. Killua gives Kite a sad look, while Gon tells Kite that he is safe now as he walks over to him. As he gets close, Kite hits him straight in the face, which slightly shocks both Knuckle and Killua.
With a sad look on his face and as the wound begins to bleed, Gon remembers that Kite hasn't hit him since that day they met on Whale Island. He then allows himself to be hit some more, while Knuckle and Shoot look on disgruntled. Morel questions the group and asks if they really want to let this go on since Gon can't use Nen. Killua replies that Gon will quickly figure out Kite's attack pattern if he hasn't already and starts to imply that Gon is letting himself get hit intentionally. Knov follows his train of thought and states that Gon is taking the punches intentionally while suppressing his reflexes to dodge and parry. Knuckle wonders if it is really possible for Gon to have figured out his pattern within a couple of minutes. Killua responds that Gon doesn't know what else to do now that he is faced with the reality they helped create.
Switching over to Gon's perspective, he is indeed anticipating Kite's moves and understands that he is moving like a machine. He then gets angry about how weak this version of Kite is. He then dodges one of his punches which he considers way too weak and then hugs Kite around his waist to the shock of Knuckle and Shoot. Gon then apologizes to Kite for what has happened to him, stating it is his and Killua's fault. With a sad expression on his face, Gon further tells him that he can rest now and to leave the rest to them.
Killua is then taken aback as Neferpitou's Nen puppet technique appears above Kite's body, which Gon can't see due to Knuckle's I.R.S. Knuckle explains that this is Level 2, which gets activated when someone touches Kite. He goes on to explain that you need advanced fighting skills to beat him now and that even though his technique has sealed Kite's Nen, the puppeteer is the Nen of the person controlling Kite. He then warns Gon to watch out, stating that he will attack again when he is touched. Gon starts to ask what he should do, but then asks him how they stopped him. Shoot looking slightly contrite tells him they had to wound him severely and apologizes to Gon for doing this. He goes on to reiterate that if you keep away from him, Kite won't attack. Gon clenches his fists and walks away from Kite, promising that they will put him right. Then looking at Killua with a fierce gaze that startles Knuckle, he swears to them and himself that he will take on Pitou personally. Knuckle then asks Killua what they did to change so much in a short time. Killua responds that they did nothing, saying that the Ants were the ones who changed them.
