As school resumes, Hachiman feels satisfied that he was able to "reset" his relationship with Yui so that she is no longer burdened by guilt. The days progress and Yui seemingly drops out of the Service Club. Shizuka pays a visit to the club and proposes a battle royale between Yukino and Hachiman to determine the winner of the wager they had set previously and tells them to find a third person to join the club. Yukino tells Hachiman that she would like to get Yui to rejoin the club by celebrating her birthday. That weekend, Yukino, Hachiman and Komachi go shopping to find presents for Yui but are initially unsuccessful. They eventually decide on buying her some type of conformativly designed clothing. Afterwards, they are confronted by Yukino's older sister, Haruno Yukinoshita, who teases Hachiman and Yukino of being a couple. As Haruno leaves, Hachiman remarks on Haruno's facade which Yukino had already known. Eventually a dog runs out of nowhere and starts playing with Hachiman. While wondering whose dog it is, Yui shows up behind them and mistakes them for being on a date and hurriedly makes to leave, but not before Yukino asks her to visit the club on Monday. On Monday, Yui shows up at the club and Yukino thanks Yui for all that she did for the club and gives her the birthday present. Hachiman also produces a present for her, and refers to their last encounter at the "Workplace Visit". Yui laments that she doesn't want their relationship to end, although this time, Yukino sincerely helps repair the rift between them by stating that by "ending" one path, they can "begin" a new one, before she leaves to inform Shizuka of Yui's return. Afterwards, as Hachiman readies to leave, he picks up the book Yukino is always seen reading, while thinking of Yukino's sincere words.
