"The Facility, Part 2", known as "Feelings Towards the Cards! Crystal Skull Vs. Great Cattle Demon" in the Japanese version, is the seventh episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's anime. It aired in Japan on May 14, 2008.
Disgusted by Tanner speaking ill of Yanagi's cards and stomping on them, Yusei Duels Tanner using Yanagi's Deck, in order to teach him that no card is truly unneeded (in the dub he wanted to teach him what respect really means).
At the center
Yusei stands across from Tanner ready to duel him. Tanner's followers don't believe Yusei can win with Yanagi's cards. Yanagi is a bit unsure himself, but Yusei tells Yanagi to just make sure to watch. Yanagi remembers the Crimson Dragon rising over the Duel stadium and asks, "Just who are you?" Tanner starts the Duel ready to teach Yusei a lesson.
In the Japanese version; Yusei tells Yanagi that it is a duelist's duty to breath life into cards by breathing. If cards have felt pain by being stepped on, then imparting joy into them is also a duelist's duty.
Yanagi recognizes Yusei's hand as the same one he had. He warns Yusei not to play "Crystal Skull" as it resulted in him taking 1000 damage, but Yusei ignores him and plays it. Tanner's followers start laughing, but Yusei reverses the damage with "Curse Reflection Doll" reversing the damage to Tanner. Yusei explains the same "Crystal Skull" that got trashed for being useless has gained strength by drawing from its friends.
One of Tanner's supporters tries to assure Tanner that that was luck, but Tanner insists that it was skill. In the Japanese he says that it has gotten him psyched up for the Duel. In the English, he says that the pro Duels has taught him how to spot a good opponent and Yusei seems to know what he's doing. Yusei ends his turn. Tanner manages to Summon "Giant Ushi Oni" and quickly inflict damage to Yusei.
Yusei continues to start his moves similar to Yanagi, resulting in the watchers mocking him. Tanner keeps them quiet, as he sees sense to Yusei's moves. Yusei manages to hold off Tanner's attacks. Yusei's skill reminds Tanner of when he was a pro duelist.
Yusei puts faith in Yanagi's cards in an attempt to draw the card needed to win the Duel. Yusei draws "Piri Reis Map" and smiles. After playing it, he gathers all the cards needed to play "Triangle O". He than plays it, winning the Duel.
Tanner's followers rush to him, while Yanagi leaps on Yusei to kiss him. Tanner congratulates Yusei and asks his name. He then apologises to Yanagi for stepping on his cards. He tells Yusei that he'd like to take him to the pro world and shakes his hand.
Two guards arrive telling Yusei that he is to see the chief.
Goodwin & Jack
He then leads Jack to a room he has never shown him before. Here he tells Jack the legend of the Signers; Jack's dragon-shaped birthmark represents the wings of the Crimson Dragon. The Public Security Maintenance Bureau is merely a temporary form. They are those who inherited people of the stars power to bring security to the public. All who have sworn loyalty to the name Iliaster, govern all things controlling society. Rex reveals himself to be the 360th Guardian of the Star. Iliaster started roughly 3,000 years ago in the Andes in South America.
Rex raises his hand causing the scenery to change to an ancient Inca civilization. The People of the Stars started a culture, the Stairway to the Dragon Star, and worshiped the Dragon Star as a God. All their knowledge from the Dragon Star was passed down to them through their ruler, the Star Dragon King. Wicked Disturbances often threatened the people. As a result the King prayed to the God for salvation. The God responded by sending the Crimson Dragon sealing the evil in the Earth.
Goodwin raises his hand again changing the scenery, so he and Jack stand in mid-air above the Nazca Lines. He explains that the evil had spread over the planet as time passed. He lists some social and economic problems in the world and says that New Domino is the only remaining Utopia. The Wicked Gods sealed in the Nazca are soon to be revived. He has searched for the summoner of the Crimson Dragon to protect humanity, the Signer with the dragon birthmark. Jack rolls up his sleeve and glares at his birthmark. In the Japanese, he says, "So you mean this birthmark... is it me?" In the English, he says, "So I'm supposed to save the world? Why didn't you say so?"
Tanner lost to Jack Atlas, who insulted him, saying he was a poor opponent and put up a weak duel. In the Japanese this caused Tanner to quit and take up underground dueling; He managed to win duels here, but getting involved in illegal dueling had bad effects on him, including alcoholism.
In the English dub, Tanner's alcoholism and drug problems were only implied as he stated "It was all downhill from there", indicating that those events occurred after he lost to Jack.
Featured Duel: Tanner vs. Yusei Fudo
Turn 2: Yusei
Yusei's hand contains "Ashoka Pillar", "Stonehenge", "Spirit Mask", "Curse Reflection Doll" and "Crystal Skull". Yusei draws "Triangle O". Yusei Normal Summons "Crystal Skull" (0/0) in Defense Position. As "Crystal Skull" was Summoned, its effect activates, inflicting 1000 damage to the player who Summoned it, but as damage would be inflicted by a card effect, Yusei activates the Quick-Play Spell "Curse Reflection Doll", making that damage become 0, then inflicting damage to Tanner equal to the amount of damage that would have been inflicted. The effect of "Crystal Skull" resolves (Tanner: 4000 → 3000 LP).
Turn 3: Tanner
Tanner draws "Ushi Oni". Tanner Tributes "Jirai Gumo" to Tribute Summon "Ushi Oni" (2150/1950). Tanner Tributes "Ushi Oni" to Special Summon "Giant Ushi Oni" (2600/2100) from his hand by its own effect. "Giant Ushi Oni" attacks and destroys "Crystal Skull". As "Giant Ushi Oni" destroyed Yusei's monster by battle, its effect activates, allowing it to attack again in a row. "Giant Ushi Oni" attacks Yusei directly (Yusei: 4000 → 1400 LP).
Turn 4: Yusei
Yusei Normal Summons "Ashoka Pillar" (0/2200) in Defense Position. Yusei activates the Equip Spell "Stonehenge", targeting a monster with 0 ATK in his Graveyard, Special Summoning it and equipping it with "Stonehenge". He targets and Special Summons "Crystal Skull" (0/0) in Defense Position, then equips "Stonehenge" to it. As "Crystal Skull" was Summoned, its effect activates, inflicting 1000 damage to the player who Summoned it (Yusei: 1400 → 400 LP). Yusei Sets a card.
Turn 5: Tanner
Tanner's Set cards are "Trap Hole" and "Spiderweb Castle". Tanner draws "Nobleman of Crossout". "Giant Ushi Oni" attacks "Ashoka Pillar". As Tanner's monster declared an attack on a monster, Yusei activates his face-down Continuous Trap "Totem Pole" and activates its effect, negating the attack. As Yusei activated a Trap Card, Tanner activates his face-down Continuous Trap "Spiderweb Castle". The effect of "Spiderweb Castle" halves the ATK of all of Yusei's attacking monsters. The effect of "Totem Pole" resolves and the attack of "Giant Ushi Oni" is negated. Tanner Sets a card. Tanner's Set cards are "Trap Hole" and "Mirror Force".
Turn 6: Yusei
Yusei draws and subsequently activates the Spell "Piri Reis Map", adding a monster with 0 ATK from his Deck to his hand, but if Yusei Summons that monster, he halves his Life Points. He adds and subsequently Normal Summons "Cabrera Stone" (0/0) (Yusei: 400 → 200 LP). As Yusei controls a face-up "Crystal Skull", "Ashoka Pillar", and "Cabrera Stone", he activates the Spell "Triangle O", destroying all cards on the field, then Tanner takes any damage that would be inflicted by the effects of those destroyed cards. "Crystal Skull", "Ashoka Pillar", "Cabrera Stone", "Triangle O", "Stonehenge", "Totem Pole", "Spiderweb Castle", "Giant Ushi Oni", and Tanner's two Set cards are destroyed. As "Ashoka Pillar" was destroyed, its effect activates, inflicting 2000 damage to its controller (Tanner: 3000 → 1000 LP). As "Cabrera Stone" was destroyed, its effect activates, inflicting 1000 damage to its controller (Tanner: 1000 → 0 LP).

- The scene where Tanner's ways went including his alcoholism were removed in the dub.
- In the English version Iliaster is the power in the universe, energy and mankind binding them together: In the Japanese version it's a secret society.
