Saturday rolls around and the Crusaders arrive at the gymnasium at the appointed time and are greeted by the one who organized the event, deposed siren Adagio Dazzle, who assures the three girls that she and her sisters have reformed and that they organized this light show as a sign of peace.

Once that is done, Adagio heads to her control panel near the stage and begins the light show, which involves several colored lights flashing and blinking right in front of the Crusaders' eyes while an unfamiliar yet alluring techno-song plays in the background. The song, however, is laced with several subliminal messages and suggestions, causing all three girls to slowly enter a mesmerized state of mind, their eyes dilating and their mouths hanging open.
