As Sayaka continues to be concerned about Kyōsuke, Madoka, still in despair over the death of Mami, admits she’s too scared to become a Puella Magi, so Kyubey decides to let her be. Madoka is later approached by Homura, who tells her that Mami, along with other Puella Magi she has seen die during her time, will only be considered missing persons by normal people. Madoka says she will never forget Mami or the fact that Homura saved her life, though Homura warns her that her kindness may turn against her. As Kyōsuke becomes more frustrated and desperate about his condition, which keeps him from being able to use his fingers to play the violin, Sayaka decides to tell her wish to Kyubey. Meanwhile, Madoka notices several people, including her classmate Hitomi Suzuki, infected by the witch’s kiss and preparing to kill themselves. When Madoka thwarts their attempted suicide, they chase her to a closet where she is caught by a witch who tortures her with memories of Mami’s death. Just then, she is rescued by Sayaka, who had become a Puella Magi after using her wish to cure Kyōsuke’s hand, much to the shock of Homura. Meanwhile, Kyubey is seen talking to another Puella Magi named Kyōko Sakura, who isn’t happy that Sayaka took over the area Mami once looked after.
