Kaneki and Hide reunite at Anteiku, and have one final talk. Hide reveals that he knew all along that Kaneki was a ghoul, and expresses sadness that Kaneki stopped hanging out with him. The talk comes to an end when Hide collapses and dies from his injuries. Touka arrives to find Anteiku in flames, and witnesses Kaneki carrying his friend off. Kaneki observes the tragic aftermath of the battle, before facing Arima alone. Some time long after that tragic day, Touka is seen opening a new cafe, :Re.
The episode ends with Hide seemingly dying, whereas in the manga, it is unknown what happened to him after he reunites with Kaneki, as he disappears. The episode also only adapts the ending of the final chapter.
