-We open with Sena taking her "Super 7" on a drive on the open road & then being passed by Daimaru on his black Ducati SS motorcycle. Look familiar? It should since this was how they first met before they got married. Yep, it's a flashback...
...But now we shift to the present & Ken's apartment where he's being roused for work by...Sena??? What are you doing here???
-Relax, Ken...Can't your stepmom come to see you once in a while? She even cooked breakfast for you so eat up! So she just felt like coming over, eh? I wonder...
-Is everything OK, Ken? BTW, your lunch just arrived via special delivery thanks to Sena who made enough for everyone in the squad room. She's also going to clean up your apartment for you while you're at work so go straight home, OK?
-Yoriko beat out Natsumi for the best morsels again! But aside from that, the Zapper shop should be open right now so why is Sena doing all this for Ken now? Did something happen to her? All Ken knows is that she suddenly showed up at his place this morning...Maybe we should check with Daimaru to see what's going on.
-For once Yoriko has a practical suggestion (Let Sena alone so she can work out whatever's going on between her & Daimaru)...But with an ulterior motive as always (More lunches).
-Ken, Miyuki & Natsumi make a stop at Zapper to see Daimaru but Honda's the only one there, watching the shop while Daimaru takes his bike out for a spin. Seems that Daimaru & Sena had an argument...Let's go to your place, Ken!
-Looks like Daimaru's going to be out on the road for a while...
-Wow, Sena not only cleaned Ken's apartment but also did his laundry & prepared his favorite dinner! This is all good but shouldn't you be at home with Daimaru?
-Sena, what did Daimaru do or say that's unforgiveable? Even though you're his stepmom Ken's not too keen on you staying with him so why don't you stay with Miyuki & Natsumi?
-Having Sena over quickly turns into a "Girls' Night" with beer, snacks & company from Saori, Aoi (I know, I know!
) & Yoriko (Who holds her liquor as well as Saori does since they both passed out at almost the same time). "Stupid Daimaru"?
-Speaking of Daimaru, he's still out on the road this late at night. There's almost no lighting on this stretch of road...That can! Watch out!
-Daimaru forgot the anniversary of when you first met, Sena (July 15th)? So that's what the argument was about! Man, Yoriko & Saori really can't handle too much beer, can't they (But they make sense even while drunk)?
-This isn't good if Sena's serious about not wanting to be with Daimaru anymore. Maybe if we remind Daimaru of the anniversary he'll remember it himself but we might make things worse if we mess it up. Some advice from someone else who's married might help...Detective Tokuno, perhaps?
-Daimaru's back at the shop but he's not too keen on giving flowers to Sena & apologizing. Don't sweat it, Honda-You didn't do anything wrong & besides, the guys' plan to get Daimaru to apologize didn't work anyway.
-You're going home to your parents, Sena? But isn't today the anniversary of you & Daimaru meeting each other for the first time? A drive in the mountains for no regrets before going home...
Meanwhile, Daimaru's done some thinking & is taking a ride himself...
-A short break on the road includes an old friend stopping to say hi to Sena & challenging her to a race. OK, but you won't get past me!
-Miyuki & Natsumi have come after Sena hoping to change her mind & they catch up just as she's racing the guy in the yellow sportscar! And no Natsumi, there's no nitrous oxide boost in Miyuki's Toyota-Only in "Today"! Hey, he's caught up with Sena but she needs to back off-LOOK OUT!
-Wait, who's that...It's Daimaru! He's WAY out of your league, kid! BTW, You're Under Arrest!
Improper passing, use of illegal mods on your car & you lost to Sena! It's just not your day, is it?
-In the end, Daimaru & Sena worked things out without help from Ken, Miyuki & Natsumi after all. Best not to meddle, no?
