At the village, Kaseki creates a Clock Spring, and it was used for the recorder machine. However, all would be for naught without Gen being there with mimicry skill. Just then, a winded Gen appears at the scene ready to help out, however, he can. Returning to Taiju and Yuzuriha's side, they confront Nikki and try to convince her to hear them out, but she refuses due to her position as an over-watch over the two. This escalates to Nikki pounding on Taiju who refuses to fight back and due to his stubbornness, Nikki is shown the Cell Phone and after reaching Senku's side, "Lillian Weinberg" answers it. Acting as Lillian's translator named Sebastian, Senku translates everything she says about how the USA have de-petrified and are on there way to Japan to rescue them. Although Nikki initially questions if the Lillian she's hearing is an imposter, Gen lies and Nikki believes it revealing how big of a fan she is. On the other hand, Nikki proclaims that if someone really is impersonating Lillian, she'll kill them. To prove that the person she's talking to is the real Lillian, Nikki asks a couple of questions only Lillian would know. Thanks to Senku's insightful deductions, Gen manages the first question correctly, however, the 2nd question was a trick question. To avoid a confrontation with Nikki, they play the song left by Lillian, which instantly causes her to become a turnout to the empire.
