  • TO BE CONTINUED [LOCK #6]...
Beyond Lock #6
  • Sigma immediately goes to the Crew Quarters and locates Alice, stopping her suicide attempt but taking a cut from the scalpel in the process.
  • They return to the infirmary and go over their voting options - Sigma, K and Dio all have a chance to get 9 BP in the next round.
  • He and Luna go to the voting booth, where Luna points out a strange white substance leaking from his hand.  Sigma has no answer for what it may be.
  • Sigma votes to Ally, putting himself at 8 BP and Luna at 7.  Surprisingly, everyone else chose to Ally as well.
  • Alice remains behind to talk with Sigma.  They go to the garden, where Luna brings up a story about The Blue Bird.  
  • She asks where Sigma found Alice during his search; she seems to suspect something is up as he never mentions having gone to the garden.  She hints that Sigma may be a robot...
  • Phi shows up, pointing out the #1 Bomb planted in the garden.
  • The three of them return to the infirmary.  Phi plans to search everyone present for an input device, hoping to uncover the culprit as well.
  • Sigma states that he knows who the culprit is...
  • TO BE CONTINUED [LOCK #7]...
Beyond Lock #7
  • Sigma quickly points to Dio, saying that he knows about the Myrmidons, Free the Soul and Brother.  Dio answers and quickly incriminates himself.
  • Caught, Dio reveals that he is Left and that he was sent her to stop Zero's plans.  Sigma makes a move toward him, but Dio pulls out the detonator for the bombs.
  • The rest of the group backs off, but Tenmyouji calls Dio's bluff, causing him to hesitate.  Tenmyouji kicks the detonator from his hand, which activates the timer on the bombs.
  • Dio, in his arrogance, reveals the Bomb #2 code: EQD-DYR-NTK.  He then moves to take his suicide pill, but Sigma stops him.
  • Phi tells Luna to drug Dio with Soporil, which she does despite Sigma's protests.
  • With only twenty minutes to spare, they split up and search for the bombs and an input device to disarm them.
  • Sigma returns to the infirmary and speaks with Luna.  Luna scans him with the ADAM, revealing that he is not a robot; he just has mechanical arms.  Sigma is confused by this, as he has no recollection of getting prosthetic arms.
  • With only a minute left on the clock, Luna says that she was given specific instructions to tell Sigma something.  "Should you encounter a two-headed lion devouring the sun, remember: GTF-DM-L-016.  With this key, the first gate shall be open to you."
  • Time runs out shortly thereafter, and the bombs detonate...
  • SIGMA ENDING UNLOCKED
Beyond Lock #3
  • Sigma realizes that his arms are artificial, and he quickly devises a way to save himself.
  • He taunts Dio, telling him to open the number nine door.  Dio opens the door, and despite some hesitation, K decides to go with him at Sigma's request.
  • Sigma makes a move toward Dio as soon as the door opens, grabbing his legs.  He still manages to crawl through, and Sigma's left arm is severed by the closing door.
  • Sigma awakes in the infirmary, where Alice reveals that K attacked her in a bid to get 9 BP.
  • It is revealed that Quark has recovered due to Sigma's actions, and the text in the diary was deciphered, revealing that the world outside has been exposed to Radical-6.  However, there are two discrepancies: Quark's infection, and the timing of the outbreak compared to the group's abductions (namely that the abductions happened first).  Zero's motives in the game also remain unknown - if they were here to be saved, why put them in a life-or-death game?
  • Theories are passed around, but no definitive answers are found.  Quark's suggestion that the old woman is Zero Sr., however, prompts them to search her one more time.
  • Phi locates an ID card with the name "Kurashiki" on it.  On the back is a password: JUMPYDOLL.
  • Shortly thereafter, Alice falls victim to Radical-6 and commits suicide.  The screen fades out as Clover screams...
  • QUARK ENDING UNLOCKED
