Episode Summary

EDIT
The episode starts with Vincent Law lying on the floor, unsure to whether he's dreaming again. Meanwhile, Re-l Mayer discovers that the police department have been accessing the Information Bureau's data bank, but why?

Vincent suddenly finds himself in trouble after he sees a crime, and is accidentally framed for it. He is being pursued by AutoReivs that he believes to be infected with Cogito, but is uncertain why. While fleeing, he finds Pino, a child-type AutoReiv, and she follows him in his escape.

Re-l is attempting to contact Vincent as she realizes why he is being pursued. She meets with Vincent herself, and asks him why a creature known as Proxy is after him. Soon the vault leading outside of Romdo opens, leading to greater peril.moreless
