They arrive at the Phenex mansion in the Underworld and head to Riser's room. He is reluctant about meeting anyone, but he comes out when hearing Rias was present. He crawls back into the covers when he sees Issei as well due to now being afraid of Dragons, which forces Ravel had to drag her brother out.

They, however, just happen to have landed within the hot spring where Issei sees all the girls naked including Ravel's who burns him out of embarrassment. Back at their camping place, Riser becomes somewhat closer to Issei and tells him that will he give up on Rias but demands to see her breast which Issei rejects and the two have another aerial fight with Rias and Tannin watching from a distance noting that Riser has made a complete recovery thanks to Issei.
