After school ends, Nagisa and Honoka are making their way home when they find out they both carried

A mystery girl suddenly appears.

Mepple and Mipple along with them, despite the fact they can no longer see them anymore. Instead of moping around however, they share a laugh after Honoka is forced to remind Nagisa that Akane's Takoyaki shop has been closed for renovations. Suddenly, they spot a strange girl seemingly lost on another path and attempt to observe her- only for her to vanish before they can.

As they head further into town a Zakenna. At that very moment, Mepple and Mipple suddenly wake up and allow the girls to transform into Pretty Cure again; causing them surprise after getting past their initial delight to see their partners again. They make quick work of the Zakenna and continue to walk home when they spot the strange girl yet again. For some reason they feel as though they know her from somewhere, but she vanishes again before they can act upon their suspicions.

As she arrives home, Nagisa gets a note from her mom saying she had taken Ryouta out shopping. A noise startles Nagisa and she nervously enters her room to spot the Guardian of the Prism Stones, along with the Elder drinking tea- much to her shock.
