The Avatar's brings the Earth Team to Alwas, one of the three planets equidistant from [[Ōban]]. The team is escorted to their hangar by [[Satis]], the Avatar's servant. Don Wei doesn't like surprises, especially the fact that they had a stowaway: Molly. Stan and Koji prepare the Arrow for Rick and Jordan's first race, but first they go to the pre-race ceremony, where Molly meets [[Prince Aikka]] of Nourasia. Jordan doesn't like Nourasians because they are allied with the Crogs. The Earth Team watches the first race between Nourasia and Ortlum. Prince Aikka uses his skillful archery to win the race. Don Wei notes that they'll have to watch out for him.

The Avatar's ship arrives at [[Alwas]], one of the aforementioned qualifying planets for the grand finals on [[Ōban]]. [[Don Wei]] is the first member of the [[Earth Team]] to wake up after an undetermined amount of time spent traveling, and orders everybody to get up and ready to leave the ship.
   
It is the Earth Team's turn to qualify for the race. Rick is up against [[Grooor]], who uses a star-racer made of polarized titanium, a very strong alloy. While Molly watches the race, she has a vision of a star-racer crashing. She wonders what it means, but Rick is doing just fine against Grooor, winning even. When the two are about to enter the final stretch before the finish line, Rick and causes a engine to burn out. The ship's engine explodes into Grooor's ship. Jordan gets out fine, but Rick is rushed away by paramedics, and the Arrow is totalled. The Earth Team is down one pilot, and one star-racer. Meanwhile, Molly realizes that her vision may actually be a memory from her childhood.

After a moment, he picks up the flashlight that woke him up in order to look for any potential damage to their star-racers. Going up to the flatbed to inspect them more closely, he finds [[Eva Wei|Eva]] sleeping on the tarp. Woken up from the flashlight, she apologizes to Don realizing she fell asleep. Not expecting Eva's presence, he demands to know why she's in the Avatar's ship. Unsure of an answer, Eva responds to Don that she's his daughter, but is interrupted right before saying that by [[Jordan]], who is also disgruntled by her presence. Understanding that there are other people around, Eva gets back into the persona of Molly, and tells Don that she believed the Earth Team could use another mechanic. Don disproves of this answer, stating that [[Stan]] and [[Koji]] are the best mechanics of the league, and labels her as just a surprise.

A moment later, the Avatar's ship opens up, and they exit with their truck. The Earth Team is greeted by [[Satis]], one of the Avatar's servants. He escorts them to their assigned [[Earth Team Pit|pit]] but warns them that they don't have much time before they're scheduled to race after the opening ceremony concludes. The Earth Team immediately begins running diagnostics on the [[Whizzing Arrow]]. Stan and Koji discover a leak that lead to the loss of approximately a liter of engine fluid. Wanting to be useful, Eva drives off on her rocket seat to get the fluid needed. Watching her leave the pit with Don, [[Rick Thunderbolt|Rick]] jokingly asks if he brought a substitute pilot. However, Don responds telling him he should know about his negative opinions on female pilots and goes back inside, not caring that Eva heard him. Rick, now not talking to anyone, commented to himself that she seems fairly talented. after narrowly avoiding getting run over by a large star-racer that came out of a blind spot extremely quickly.

  +
After acquiring a liter of engine fluid, Eva returns to the pit, only to find herself locked out. After she bangs on the door, a scrub inside appearing to inspect the Whizzing Arrow is startled and runs off. Upset, she decides to go to the opening ceremony. There, she meets a young man named [[Prince Aikka|Aikka]], whose name is revealed by [[Canaan]], his mentor and supervisor, is shown to be a prince. After being spotted and called over by Jordan, she enthusiastically gives the engine fluid to Stan.

Almost immediately after, the [[Race Judges|race judges]] arrive to their balcony, and announce the official commencement of the [[Pre-Selections|Alwas pre-selections]], and then summon the [[Avatar]]. The Avatar briefs the contestants of the guidelines and only rule (Do not murder your adversary). He then wishes luck for all contestants, then disappears.
  +
  +
The race judges wait no time to begin the race, calling forth the first pair of contestants to the starting area: Prince Aikka from [[Nourasia]] and an unnamed contestant from Hortlum. While speaking with Eva, Jordan reveals that the kingdom of Nourasia has a public alliance with the [[Crogs|Crog Imperium]], and thus has a low opinion of them. However, much to his dismay, Aikka wins halfway through after firing an arrow into the Hortlum racer's exhaust, completely destroying their star-racer.
  +
  +
Later in the evening, the Earth Team is called to race. Rick is matched against [[Grooor|Groor]], who pilots [[Apocalypse]], a star-racer with the same fundamental design as the Whizzing Arrow. While watching the race, Eva sees visions of a violent star-racer crash when Rick is rammed into the track's walls by Grooor. Unsure what she just saw, Eva assumes the vision is a gut feeling that something bad is going to happen. Anxious, she rushes to the control room to warn Stan and Koji about her premonitions of something bad happening to the Arrow and Rick. After Groor loses his lead and control due to tripping on a horizontal pillar, Koji reassures Eva that nothing bad is going to happen and suggests she goes back outside to watch the race.
  +
  +
While in the canyon, Groor runs out of ammunition and begins to focus on passing Rick instead of shooting down the Arrow. Rick slightly understeers into the final turn and is rammed slightly off course by Groor, who didn't turn in time and was even further off track. While on the beach straight, the Arrow's right cooling system experiences a dangerous and unexpected surge of heat, panicking Stan and Koji. The Arrow's right air brake flies open and its accompanying engine shuts down, then suddenly explodes. Apocalypse is caught in the explosion, and both crash at the track's starting area in flames.
  +
  +
Eva, who had started watching the race again outside on the roof just before the cooling system failed, experiences the same vision of a star-racer crash again, now in greater detail. Realizing that it was a memory from when she was a small child, in tandem with seeing Rick's crash, Eva falls to her knees in anguish. Don rushes to the crash site to assess the damage. Jordan gets out of the Arrow unharmed, announcing this to him. Panicked over Rick, Don rushes to him reassuring him that he'll get out fine. Rick replies in overall agreeance, but passes out after declaring that he didn't come to Always just to lose after a single race. The episode then closes with a close-up shot of Eva horrifically observing the crash site from the roof.
