Summary : After surviving the Money Dopant's attack, Shotaro gets a glimpse of Philippe's family as the young man comes to and becomes crazed as he searches the Gaia Library for "My Family" only to find a book with the pages torn out. Shotaro attempts to put the worried Philippe at ease until he gets a call from Akiko from the Million Colosseo. She uses the Bat Shot to broadcast Yuko's loss at the roulette wheel after she bet her life to win back her earnings, with the Money Dopant sealing the woman's soul into a Life Coin. When Akiko reveals herself to and nearly gets herself killed, Philippe challenges the Money Dopant to a game of chance to save her and get the Life Coins, using his and Shotaro's Gaia Memories as collateral. While Philippe researches on everythting gambling related, Shotaro ruminates on the family he saw in Philippe's memory before he and Philippe board the bus to the Million Colosseo. Philippe easily predicts the results of the roulette, winning most of the Life Coins until Kaga mentions the word "family", breaking Philippe's winning streak and winning back his Life Coins along with most of the Gaia Memories. Tagging it for Philippe, Shotaro then challenges Kaga to a winner takes all game of Old Maid. Though Kaga played Shotaro into a position where he can win, Shotaro turns the tables by using the Double Driver to link his mind with Philippe's to win with his partner's abilities. Enraged, Kaga transforms into the Money Dopant and escapes as Double chases him down, assuming LunaJoker and LunaMetal to fight him. When the Money Dopant attempts to use the word "family" to make freeze Philippe up again, he resolves that Shotaro and Akiko are family enough for him at the moment. Double transforms into HeatMetal and causes the Money Memory's Memory Break, freeing Yuko Izumi and everyone else from the Life Coins. On the radio later, Wakana Sonozaki mentions the newest mystery to hit Futo: Kamen Rider Double.
Elsewhere, after being tested by Wakana as the Clay Doll Dopant to see if he is worthy of the Nasca Memory's power, Kirihiko's wedding to Saeko goes off without a hitch, and the new family pose for a photo together, all transformed into their Dopant forms.
