After going through NORTH LAKE on either route of the game, OMORI enters a new location known as the DEEP WELL, also referred as the UNDERWATER HIGHWAY. He takes a taxi to the local casino of this area: LAST RESORT.
KEL informs OMORI that all their friends from the FOREST PLAYGROUND have taken jobs at the casino due to getting tricked into working for MR. JAWSUM by signing contracts. They also meet up with MARI, who expresses relief over seeing OMORI safe and sound. The cutscene for this scene plays out differently depending on which route the player is on.
Regardless, the main objective is to get AUBREY and HERO back within LAST RESORT. When entering the casino, the player must head towards the elevators up north. However, KEL will complain that he needs to use the bathroom. Take KEL to the men's bathroom first before entering the elevators. The men's bathroom also contains the P letter for the HANGMAN.
KEL will then tell OMORI that he needs a COOL KEY CARD so that they can access the 5th floor. This item can found on the second floor, located in the room where BANGS temporarily resides. Afterwards, the player can now access the fifth floor, only to find BERLY and two GATOR GUYS blocking the path to the CONCIERGE. However, KEL manages to make her budge at the expense of a BOTTLED WATER, which can be found in the GATOR GUY BREAK ROOM on B1.
OMORI will then find AUBREY working as a secretary, completely overwhelmed with calls; after being reminded that they need to find BASIL, AUBREY agrees to abandon her post and the trio enter JAWSUM'S OFFICE. MR. JAWSUM is willing to let the children go but refuses to let go of HERO due to the latter being his star employee and his effectiveness in everything he does.
The group ends up having to fight MR. JAWSUM and his GATOR GUY henchmen to free HERO from his clutches. After prevailing against him, MR. JAWSUM sends in his other star employee to take care of the party, which is none other than the rogue planet PLUTO.
At JAWSUM's command, PLUTO transforms into his powered-up form to fight against the party. This also fails, and JAWSUM eventually concedes, allowing the now fully assembled party to leave.
Despite having no actual reward for this quest, completing it is necessary to progress the story and the search for BASIL. After defeating both JAWSUM and PLUTO, HERO will give OMORI a V.I.P. KEY CARD upon riding the elevator back to the first floor. That item can automatically make all elevators in the game move faster.
This leads to a cutscene where the group discusses on where to go next while trying to remember what BASIL looks like. KEL and AUBREY attempt to draw BASIL based on their memories, but to no avail, no result comes out of it. Regardless, HERO cheers the group up by telling them that they still have to explore the other regions of DEEP WELL just in case BASIL is found there.
