When loan company owner Jumonji (Kagawa Teruyuki) finds out about the incident, he uses it to get them to start a corpse dismemberment business, and Masako, Yoshie and Kuniko find themselves cutting up bodies again. Then Jumonji's severed hand is delivered to Yayoi's house. The man accused of Yayoi's husband's death has begun his revenge...
