Cover of Retrace XXXV: Madness of Lost Memories

Gilbert lay in his bed, thinking about Vincent had asked him before, about why didn't he just kill Alice. His thoughts are interrupted by a sound and he sees a letter next to his door. He picks it up and reads it, judging from the handwriting that it was from Oz. In the letter, Oz apologized for the previous day, citing that since Gil wouldn't listen to him, he had to use this method. Oz called himself useless and said that he no longer had the will to live, making Gil feel bad for getting so angry. Gil then sees the part where Oz wrote that he was "better off dead", emphasizing greatly on it, and he bursts through the door shouting at Oz, who happened to be crouching outside, for being "emo". Gil stares at Oz, gradually calming down, while Oz simply smiles. He tells Gil to prepare himself as they're going on a trip. Gilbert asks him where they were going and Oz replies, "To Sablier".
