The episode begins with Chihiro-sensei reporting that Sakurasou will be demolished before the next term, since a construction firm checked the building over winter break and found it unsuitable. After Chihiro-sensei leaves, the residents debate about their next course of action. Misaki suggests that they talk to the principal, however, Jin rejects the proposal, as it would probably cause the principal to be more convinced to demolish the dormitory. Nanami and Sorata also suggest that they make the board listen to them, but Ryuunosuke catches Sorata and suggests rationality, saying that moving to the normal dormitories would free them of chores, and give them more time.
In Jin's room, he and Misaki talk about why the administration wants Sakurasou demolished. The two agree not to let the dormitories be demolished, as they believe that it holds sentimental value. In Sorata's room, he explained to Mashiro the implications of the dormitory's demolishment, which ultimately leads to Sorata being unable to take care of her. One of Sorata's cats finds a picture, and Sorata recalls it as the first picture he had when he moved in. Sorata then tells Mashiro his story of how he got into the dorm, and his memories before she came.The nostalgic flashback(more at the slideshow) spoke of how Sorata moved in, and his first encounter with its residents. After Sorata told her the story, he is even more convinced that he won't let Sakurasou get demolished. He says that even if the building is old and has its flaws (like Sorata's malfunctioning door lock, the floorboards breaking, the leaks, etc.), the flaws are part of their memories at the dormitory. He also adds that the problems are one of the things that make them belong in Sakurasou. Everyone agrees to stop the demolishment of the dormitory, even Ryuunosuke, after he was disappointed with the school adminstration failing to give them a reason. The students unanimously vow to protect the dorm.
