"That Person's History" is the 18th episode of the season "Two Mirrors " and the 44th episode from total.
Rina Takeda comes home from work one day to find her mother, who left the family when she was a little girl, has returned an invalid. Not only that, but her father, Ryohei, wants her to have to pamper her mother every day, causing problems for the girl. Rina uses the Hell Link to get rid of her mother, and tries to do so eventually, but finds that she cannot, because her father used the Hell Link and therefore got the straw doll she had. She rushes over to where her father is taking her mother for a walk, but finds her father has already sent her mother to Hell. Her father tells her the truth: Rina is not the daughter of the woman she thought was her mother. After discovering she was infertile, the wife encouraged the husband to have a child with another woman. Even though this was her idea, it caused his wife to get angry and leave, and eventually attempt suicide by throwing herself in front of a car. Rina then remembers that her mother did accept her once, but knows it is too late.
