There is a place after death that's neither heaven nor hell. A bar that serves you one chance to win. You cannot leave until the game is over, and when it is, your life may be too.
As Oculus confronts Nona, who wants to prove that arbiters are more than dummies, Decim brings Chiyuki to her old house, offering her the chance to be brought back to life in exchange for another's life. Observing how much her mother cares for her even after her death, Chiyuki comes close to taking up the offer. However, upon remembering everyone she met in the Quindecim, she ultimately decides against it, believing that the life that would've been sacrificed also has people who cherish them and regretting not cherishing her own life. This causes a wealth of emotions to swell up in Decim, who reveals this was all part of Chiyuki's judgement and experiences sorrow for the first time. As Nona observes the outcome with Oculus, showing that an important part of judging humans is to understand their suffering, Decim sees Chiyuki off to be reincarnated with a smile on his face, indicating that he still has human emotion. With Nona and the others arbiters pondering where things will go from here, Decim welcomes new guests to the Quindecim, with the camera fading on Chiyuki's dummy.
A young couple, Takashi and Machiko, arrive in the bar Quindecim without any recollection of how they got there. The bartender tells them they cannot leave until they first finish playing a game, one in which their lives will be at stake.
