Watadamashi-hen, Part 4 (綿騙し編其ノ四, Cotton-Deceiving Chapter, Part 4) is the eighth episode of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Gou.


Rika Furude disappears shortly after the conversation she had with Keiichi Maebara in the previous episode. Keiichi and his classmates attempt to search for her. While holding Keiichi up on a ladder, Mion becomes to violently shake while proclaiming that Rika is going to kill people. Keiichi nearly falls but the pair are interrupted by Rumiko Chie. That evening, Mion invites Keiichi over to the Sonozaki Estate. While there, Keiichi confesses to entering the Saiguden during the Watanagashi Festival.

Mion leads Keiichi to the torture chamber underneath the Sonozaki Estate. Mion tricks him into nearing an open cell and throws him in. Mion insists that she is doing this for his own safety as the other villagers may want to harm him. Mion professes her love for Keiichi and vows to put an end to the series of mysterious deaths. Mion leaves to attend to a mysterious visitor and Keiichi manages to break out of his cell, though he finds himself unable to break the door leading upstairs. Keiichi passes out while repeatedly ramming into the door. He wakes up on a stretcher, being escorted away from the estate by Kuraudo Ooishi.

At an unknown date, some time later, Ooishi meets with Keiichi and tells him about a well that was near his cell. Inside the well, the police found the bodies of Oryou Sonozaki, Kiichirou Kimiyoshi, and Shion Sonozaki. Furthermore, Rika's body was found inside the septic tank at school. Finally, Mion and Satoko's bodies were found in a hallway in the Sonozaki Estate.
