Kamen Rider Double Ep 24 3/3

Summary : After the Liar Dopant's ruse is revealed, Jimmy breaks down in tears. When Kamen Rider Double's guard is down, the Liar Dopant uses Lie Needles to trick Double into thinking Accel is a Dopant and then redirects Akiko's slipper attack to a tanuki statue. Before he leaves, the Liar Dopant gathers some of Jimmy's tears on a slip of washi paper. The Lie Needles' effects wear off soon after, as Jimmy leaves in a huff with Yukiho in tears. While this all occurs, Dr. Isaka examines Saeko's Dopant form, suggesting to her that she could possibly defeat her father and take over the Museum and he is willing to help her. Back at the Narumi Agency, Yukiho reveals how she met Jimmy while in a deep depression and his singing was the only thing that brought her joy. Wanting to return the favor, she says she met the Liar Dopant, who convinced her that he could help Jimmy win the Fuuuuuutic Idol competition. As Ryu and Philip review their battles with the Liar Dopant, especially how the Lie Needles affect them, Shotaro finds Jimmy at the beach and, in an unwilling melodramatic fashion, tells him that Jimmy has been lying to himself the whole time and now needs to make his own choice. Using washi as a keyword, Philip identifies the Liar Dopant as Sachio Sawada. However, when Shotaro goes to find Sawada at the plaza where he and Jimmy used to work at, Sawada has already left. When the others learn of this, Ryu recites something the Dopant said to him and Philip identifies it as one of Wakana's catchphrases. Phoned by Philip, Wakana agrees to help him by claiming to meeting the "Radio Tower Clown" after finishing her broadcast. Hearing it on the radio, Sawada assumes his Dopant form and follows her. When he finds Wakana meeting with the "Radio Tower Clown", the "Clown" directly insults Sawada, bringing the Dopant out of hiding. However, it turns out to be a trap as "Wakana" is Philip in disgise while clown reveals himself as Shotaro, with Ryu as Wakana's bodyguard, Akiko as one of Wakana's (male) fans, Philip as Wakana "herself". While Akiko is distraught that she had to play the male fan while Philip played a very convincing female role in the trap, Kamen Riders Double and Accel battle the Liar Dopant, with Double assuming CycloneMetal form to use the Spider Shaft combo to disable the Liar Dopant's needle attacks. After he is knocked off of the building, Accel transforms into Bike Form to save him, and then uses Bike Form's speed to deliver a Joker Extreme to destroy the Liar Memory, bringing Sawada to tears. Back at the studio, with Yuhiko in the crowd, Jimmy arrives and dedicates a song to her which the judges dislike (now that the Liar Dopant's spell is over), but they admit that he put a lot of heart into it and encourage to work harder. Backstage, Yukiho approaches Jimmy and they admit their feelings to each other.
Days later, Jimmy begins to work at the same factory as Yukiho, spending more time with each other and making each other smile. Queen and Elizabeth arrive at the Narumi Agency with the first of their debut CDs, but the two are upset that the Kamen Singers have gotten bigger press. Akiko uses calligraphy to state that she is a woman, still distraught that Philip makes a better looking woman than she does, just as Philip suggests he and Shotaro start a new singing career after having discovered enka.
