Giselle talks with Millia, and they both want Fam to be happy. Giselle realizes that it's Fam's birthday, and the two decide to do something for her.
The crew of the Silvius play an impromptu hockey game using brooms. Giselle returns to see Fam playing and recalls when they first became friends. Giselle and Millia join the game on Fam's side, and Tatiana Wisla and Alister Agrew join the opposing team.
After the game, the crew holds a birthday celebration for Fam. As they celebrate, Vincent Alzey arrives.

- In chess, a passed pawn is a pawn with no opposing pawns to prevent it from advancing to the eighth rank, i.e. there are no opposing pawns in front of it on the same file nor on an adjacent file. A passed pawn is sometimes colloquially called a passer. Passed pawns can be an advantage because only the opponent's pieces can prevent them from promoting. Connected passed pawns are passers on adjacent files. These are considered to be unusually powerful because they can advance together.
