The Women Who Lead (2x4)
The second round of the Nym Type Zero game begins. Miri Youbami and Miyo Inbami reflect on their past together as children where they developed their own secret communication technique. They use it to reveal their hands to each other, giving them a decided advantage. Mary instructs Suzui which cards to play, and they manage to win the round, forcing Miri to prick her finger on a poisoned needle. The third round begins and Mary bets 1 million and the others call. Mary then reveals that she knows the card distribution because Yuna used the Gilbreath shuffle, preserving the order of the cards, beating Miyo and Miri who did not pay attention to the shuffle. Miyo then instructs Miri to lose, but she collapses from the poison just as she plays the card, forfeiting the game to Mary and Suzui. Later, as Yumeko recovers after Kei helped to inject the antidote, Mary decides that she must become president as Yumeko is too addicted to gambling and risking her life. Meanwhile the election gamble continues, with Kirari amassing a large number of voting chips and is about to be challenged by the Momobami clan.
