In a strange turn of events, it comes out that Lapan's first true love was Alice's own mother! Christmas Eve finds Lapan dressing the gang up in the usual parade of skimpy outfits, but the pervy party is cut short when back-to-back battles with a brainwashed Mad Hatter and the exiled shinigami controlling him get underway. With casualties on both sides, Alice uncharacteristically takes control of the situation and defeats Ume's brother, who arrives seeking revenge. Another Tsurukame member shows up to forgive both exiled shinigami and welcome them back to the (ahem) bosom of both the Chairman and the shinigami world. But what about Alice's body? And her quest for love? Does the answer really lie in Lapan's groping hands?
