Episode 2: “Contract With the Dragon”

Story By Steve Wang, Nathan Long and Michael Wang

Written by Colin Gillis

Directed by Steve Wang

Summary: With the Dragon after them, Wing Knight and Blank Knight escape back to Earth through the same reflections (portals) they came out of, but they get separated.

At Grace's Books, Maya finds out that Kit lives just down the street. Trent says he knows Kit, from Commerce High, and tells Maya that he is a thief and that he took his little brother's MP3 Player. Trent tells Maya to stay away from this dude, he's been in a lot of trouble since his dad disappeared.

Xaviax regenerates the spider creature. The Spider forms an upper body, with two arms.

Maya spots Len on his motorcycle in front of the bookstore, as he's looking for Kit. Maya wants to talk to him, but Len takes off and rides into a mirror.

Back home, Kit is dreaming and remembers what has happened. Kit wakes up and looks at the Contract Card.

Trent and Maya hack the Police Database to find more about Kit's dad and to check out the list of disappeared people.

Kit is riding his motorcycle. He sees that Len is right behind him. Kit tries to get away, but a civilian gets in his way. Len takes Kit's keys and rides off. Kit pushes his cycle along and finds Len waiting for him. Kit wants his keys back, but Len wants the Advent Deck. Kit asks him about the Contract Card and the Dragon. Len tells him if he Contracts with that Dragon, he will be Vented. They hear that strange noise again. Len explains that a portal is opening, and that someone is in trouble. Len goes to save the person and tells Kit to follow. The spider monster webs a Electrician and tries pulling him in, but Len and Kit save him. Len transforms to Wing Knight and goes in after the spider monster. Kit tries to transform like Len did, but it doesn't work. Kit then has another vision of his dad, reminding him about the Contract Card. On the rooftop, Kit holds out the Card, then Contracts with the Dragon and becomes Kamen Rider Dragon Knight.

The spider monster fires spears at Wing Knight then hits him off the building. Black Wing (the bat) quickly catches him, but the spider races down the building, firing multiple spears at him through the air, then fires a stream of webbing which wraps around and causes him to fall to the ground. The spider fires three more spears, but suddenly, they are deflected by Dragon Knight. Dragon Knight uses his "Sword Vent" card (with 2,000 Attack Points (Drag Saber)) and attacks the monster, then pulls out his "Final Vent" card (with 6,000 Attack Points). He leaps into the air as the Dragon flies around him. The Dragon fires, scorching the Rider and projecting him toward the spider (Flying Side Kick), and the spider monster is destroyed. A sphere appears from the defeated monster, and the Dragon absorbs it. Although the new Dragon Knight just saved him, Wing Knight is still not happy with him and takes off.

On his way up to his dad's apartment, Kit finds Maya there waiting for him on the stairs. Maya gives Kit his wallet and follows him up. Kit explains that there is a duplicate of their world just beyond a mirror, or a reflective surface. The Advent Decks are the boarding pass. Maya explains that she writes for a paranormal investigative blog called WayAboveTopSecret. com and that she thinks his father's disappearance is connected to something they've been looking into. Maya wants to show him, so they head on out.

Walking down the street, both Kit and Maya hear the strange noise. They find a window, but her friend Lacey is coming. Kit transforms to Dragon Knight and enters the portal. Dragon Knight rides through the portal to the other side on his own Ride Shooter. Some of Xaviax's red minions, and a Beast, are taken a civilian. Dragon Knight tries to save the person, but the Beast gets in his way, and the minions escape with the civilian. Maya can see the battle in the reflection, but Lacey can not. Maya and Lacey leave. Dragon Knight is in trouble against the Beast. Another Rider shows up in a Ride Shooter - Kamen Rider Incisor. But Incisor starts attacking Dragon Knight...
