Centipede × And × Memory (ムカデ×ト×オモイデ, Mukade × To × Omoide) is the 123rd episode of the Hunter × Hunter 2011 series. It first aired on April 2nd, 2014.
Welfin confronts Ikalgo but things turn upside-down when Welfin gets shot instead. Black centipedes grow inside Ikalgo's head, and only Welfin can stop it. Confined in a cocoon for days, Palm Siberia finally awakens.
As the King Meruem and Chairman Netero prepare for their final battle, Ikalgo continues to cry for his weakness for not killing Bloster. He does not notice the entrance of Hina, Bizeff, and Shidore on a truck. When he finds out, he is quickly confronted by Welfin, who is prepared to use his Missile Man Nen ability. Despite his warning, Ikalgo proceeds to attack Welfin with his Air Rifle. Welfin is unable to ask questions, but the Missile Man's projectiles hits Ikalgo, which don't do anything at first. Soon afterwards, it is revealed the attack made black centipedes grow inside Ikalgo's head. The centipedes are made from Nen and will continue to grow if the host is resistant to Welfin's terms. Welfin warns Ikalgo of the excruciating pain but Ikalgo dismisses it, attacking Welfin once more with his rifle.
After being attacked three times, Welfin pretends to faint unsuccessfully, and Ikalgo is ready to kill him. Welfin admits that there is no way to remove those centipedes, as he has never thought about it. At the same time, Ikalgo realizes that the centipedes in his head start to fade when Welfin suffers and begs for mercy. Then, in an attempt to remove the centipedes, Ikalgo asks about Welfin's past. He recounts when he was confronted by Yunju's division in NGL, and was consumed by the Queen. He also remembers his father strangling him, and his friend Gyro. Welfin expresses his desire to find his friend, and the centipedes disperse, confirming Ikalgo's theory. Before leaving, Ikalgo asks about Palm, and Welfin directs him upstairs, explaining that there is a captured woman trapped in a cocoon up there. Just as Ikalgo is leaving, Welfin admits that speaking honestly and opening up feels amazing after lying and not trusting anyone all these years. Upstairs, Palm leaves her cocoon, only to be reborn as a new Chimera Ant.
