|← Episode 7||Episode 9 →|
Dragon watches as Snake's severed arms strangle Ushii and Tora. In a flashback, Dragon and Snake are being tried for crimes which damaged the prestige of the twelve houses. They were engaged by both sides in a deal involving criminals supplying orphans to a pharmaceutical research facility for illegal experimental drugs. However, they decided to betray their clients and take all the money themselves, destroying the facility and killing everyone left inside. They also accepted money to destroy surviving witnesses. Although they sometimes distributed the fortunes they stole to the poor, their good intentions often backfired, making the gestures quite hollow. After being acquitted of the crimes due to Snake's convincing arguments as defense attorney, they were chosen as representatives for the Zodiac Tournament. Back in the present, Ushii's strategy of burning Snake's severed arms is effective and he and Tora are freed. Ushii then realizes that burning is the only way to stop Rabbit's zombie puppets. Meanwhile Dragon plans a fitting memorial service for his younger brother Snake.
