Later at School, Nozomi attempts to convince Rin that she is telling the truth but Rin brushes her off. As Nozomi tries to tell her, she is distracted by their new teacher, who she recognizes as Coco - going by the name, Koji Kokoda. After class she confronts him about it and he tells her that its important for him to reside close to Pretty Cure. Rin overhears this as Coco goes on to explain to Nozomi what the Dream Collet is, and how it can grant any wish that you want. He also explains the Nightmares.

Meanwhile, Girinma gets in trouble with the Board of Directors for failing to capture the Dream Collet, and is sent back to Earth with renewed resolve.

After hearing about the destruction of the Palmier Kingdom, Nozomi vows to gather four other Cures to fight, while Rin is still apprehensive. However, after Coco transforms back into his mascot form after falling down the steps to catch Nozomi, she finally believes his story but passes up on the offer to become Pretty Cure. Karen and Komachi come looking for Nozomi, investigating the destruction that went on in the school library the previous episode, but are unable to find her.
