Tessa is secured in San Francisco as a stray mentally-ill girl. She proclaimed that she was dumped there after a mutinee broke out onboard Tuatha Dé Danaan several days after the attack on Melida Island. Obviously the female doctor assigned to Tessa's care doesn't believe her story. Just when Tessa was about to be transferred to a mental institution, Tessa, her doctor, and an innocent nurse who was wheelchairing Tessa were abducted by unknown men. The leader of that group was Lee Fowler, a member of Amalgam. Just as he was about to pull the trigger against the doctor, the "innocent nurse" (Mao in disguise) pulled out her gun, Tessa rose up and ordered her team to start firing. It was all an act on Tessa's part to fish out Amalgam for a lead to her brother Leonard. As Amalgam agents receded, Tessa gave a message to Lee to state to her brother:

Tessa used a swear word which surprised all the members of de Danann.
Meanwhile Kaname is still stuck somewhere with Leonard.
Sousuke wakes up at a hospital in the Marquesas Islands in French Polynesia. Lemon secured Sousuke out of Namsak as he was dying and managed to revive him albeit in critical condition. Lemon works for the DGSE, in which the French government is highly interested in what the US refers to as the "Toy Box" (de Danaan) and the mysterious syndicate known as "Amalgam." Sousuke is a valuable intelligence source so Lemon secures his safety...but also seems to have found a friendship with Sousuke. Hence Lemon goes against his superior officer's demands to torture Sousuke in order to gain intelligence. But Lemon's true motive being with Sousuke is very primitive - if he stays close to Sousuke, he may get a chance get revenge against those who killed Nami.
Later in the night, a group of armed men (Amalgam) storm the hospital compound to kill Sousuke. Lemon and some of his men barely escape with Sousuke...
Back at de Danaan, Tessa is clearly over-working herself. Mardukas pleas that she take some rest.
Flashback scene, Tessa remembers when she told the surviving members of Mithril in de Danaan that they are all for themselves now. Since Mithril is virutally dead, they have no means of paying these mercenaries. The battle against Amalgam is not honor or because it's good, it's plain an simple revenge. She announced that anyone who wished to disembark de Danaan to do so freely and that there were no obligations to stick with her ship anymore. To her surprise, most of the crew remained (lest for a few soldiers who had families back home) willing to fight to the death. Like Tessa said, this was just simple revenge against Amalgam - and a one that they very well deserve.
Meanwhile, Lemon and Sousuke managed to escape the French Polynesian islands. They only place Sousuke could think of was a remote place deep within the Florida Everglades. There, Sousuke enlisted the help of
Lt. Col. J.G. Courtney (see "Rouhei tachi no Fuga")
, veteran Vietnam War marine who has a tendency to use the word "fucking" as an adjective to everything. Sousuke chose this location as a prime place to rehabilitate (read: self-forced military boot camp) to regain the strength he lost while he was in the hospital.
