Just tell me what's wrong! I want to help you-
For the first time in days, Seraphina told John that she wished to speak with him and took him into an empty classroom to discuss certain matters. Despite John's levity, Seraphina immediately told her friend to drop the cripple schtick and admitted that she knew the Joker's identity upon witnessing his battle against the Royals. John denied Seraphina's accusations and continued lying about his identity, desperately pleading Seraphina for her to just believe his words. These pleas caused Seraphina to wonder if he was trying to convince her or himself.
Seraphina assured John that she was willing to talk about his problems, but John stubbornly continued to deny the truth until Seraphina revealed that she knew John's past.

John only saw Seraphina's mention of lower-ranking students as a way to flip to blame on him and reminded her that she too was now a low-ranking student. Yet, despite the arguing between the two, Seraphina mentioned how John mentioned one of Unordinary's greatest lessons was that "everyone had something to offer." Seraphina created this opening in the hopes of helping John. Unfortunately, John rejected the offer, and denounced any faith he had in the book. In his anger, John bluntly tells Seraphina that she was but a mere helpless cripple who should worry more about helping herself. With that last bridge burned, Seraphina knew that John was completely gone, and when John refused to let go of Seraphina's arm, she slapped him...
