"Haru, if you join the swim team you get to get in the pool. But I don't want to join the swim team, Haru. Okay, okay, Haru, but hear me out: you get to go in the pool. You make a compelling argument, Haru. Thank you, Haru." - Haru

Episode SummeryEdit

Rin and Haru begin their race and Rin reestiblishs that the loser will have to commit "Swimppuku." Haru forces Makoto to promise that if he dies, he will be burried with his swimsuits. The winner isn't revealed, instead the scene cuts to Rin discovering that Swimppuku isn't a real word and sadly addmiting that he can never really win.

The next day, Makoto and Nagisa are approached by Gou. After bantering about whether she should be called Gou or Kou, she asks them if they met Rin. Nagisa replies that they did but it was stupid becuase neither of them died after the death race. Haru simply refused to kill himself and Rin let him go. It is also revealed that Gou overheard the boys plans to visit their old swim club and sent Rin there, causing the intial meeting between Rin and the Iwatobi boys. 

Regardless of past events, the three decide to start a swim team at their school. The only problem is talking Haru into it. After approaching him with the idea, Haru discusses it with the other Harus and they agree to join so they can get in the pool.

The episode ends with them agreeing to form the team and Makoto and Nagisa imagining Haru as captian.
