Knov witnesses Bizeff's prostitutes being imported into the palace, and realizes that Palm is among them. He flees the palace grounds. Once he is far enough, he goes into a mental breakdown after having seen Pouf's aura. He internally tells Palm not to be reckless, and that the mission can still succeed even if she does not. He also questions how Gon and Killua are able to continue as normal after being engulfed by Pitou's aura. Finally, he warns Palm not to get caught, or the entire mission will fail.
Bizeff welcomes the prostitutes into indoor neighborhood, and offers them residence and meals; the only thing they have to do is obey his orders. He orders one girl to come with him and the others to go to their quarters. Palm decides that she must now use this opportunity to escape and lay her eyes on the King and the Royal Guards. Once she does that, she can use her crystal ball to view their location at all times. She resolves to commit suicide if she does not succeed.
