After a failed attempt at defeating Lil' Slugger (who changed into an abnormal form), Maniwa turns to the old man for help. He says something about dancing with a rabbit and then dies. Maniwa heads to Misae's house after hearing her on his radio equipment. When he arrives, he discovers that Lil' Slugger and Maromi are the same. While contemplating, he hears a voice calling to him. He discovers a doll in a playboy bunny suit as she asks him to follow her. Maniwa reaches the apartment of an otaku with a big collection of dolls. With their help (their animate to Maniwa and the otaku isn't aware of his presence), he discovers that there was another incident similar to the Lil' Slugger attacks. The incident took place ten years ago and the victim was Tsukiko! Maniwa goes to Tsukiko's father and discovers the truth behind the attack. Back at M&F, Maniwa contacts Tsukiko and tells her that he knows everything. However, Maromi cuts the line as Lil' Slugger suddenly appears. Maniwa appears in time as he fights Lil's Slugger. In the meantime, Maromi leads Tsukiko to Ikari's world. Soon, figures, images, and merchandise of Maromi disappear as some of the victims of Lil' Slugger fall back into their state of paranoia.

btw, i copied that from an episode guide i got online. its not 100% accurate, but its a pretty good description of the episode. i think its utterly fascinating about how lil' slugger changes in the eyes of the public and the eyes of the people personally involved with him as the show goes on. i was browsing online (in a fashion not unlike radical edward [first person to tell me which anime thats from gets a cookie!]) and i found this forum where they were having a serious philosophical discussion about paranoia agent as it was airing each week. it was freakin amazing what they came up with and how intelligent they all were. it made me sad that i was only subscribed to here where an idiot will come in and lurk around your thread just to flame you like an ass... :*(
