"Spit Your Sadness Away" is the 12th episode of Kill la Kill.
As Ryūko Matoi angrily goes into a furious attack, Nui Harime tells her how she killed Isshin Matoi with the Scissor Blades he himself created and stealing one of its blades, but not before having her left eye slashed in the process. The boiling blood of Ryūko's rage has an adverse effect on Senketsu, causing him to go berserk and consume her, resulting in a monstrous form.
As Mako Mankanshoku and her family head towards the scene in order to save Ryūko from dying of blood loss, Tsumugu Kinagase tries to draw away Nui to give Aikurō Mikisugi the opportunity to use an adhesive bullet on Ryūko. Satsuki Kiryūin dons her Kamui in order to put a stop to Ryūko, but it is Mako who manages to literally slap Ryūko to her senses and bring her back to her normal self, saving her life.
A few days later, as Ryūko is recovering from her battle, Satsuki reveals that she was the one who ordered Nui to steal the sword scissors from Isshin, before announcing that Ryūko's battles with the Elite Four have helped her perfect the Goku Uniforms so that they can take over every school that opposes them.

- “Stop it, Ryūko! C'mon, this isn't like you at all! Remember how you told me you wished you knew your dad better, and how you wanted to find out why he died? You can't find out if you're a raging monster! All you're doing is wrecking the school, just like me when I wasn't thinking straight! Remember me and our stupid fight club? Remember? When I was acting all horrible to you, you set me straight. So now...I'm gonna set you straight! I'll get you back, I'll get you back, I'll get you back!”—Mako attempting to restore Ryūko.
