This article is about a/an episode in Kamen Rider W.

The Q on the Radio/Live Catastrophe (レディオでQ/生放送大パニック Redio de Kyū/Namahōsō Daipanikku) is the fourteenth episode of Kamen Rider W. It is the concluding part of the 'Q' arc, Q standing for Question and Queen.

Synopsis

As Shotaro continues to try and lure out Wakana's violent stalker, Philip continues to get unusually close to the radio-broadcasting Sonozaki.

Plot

When the Violence Dopant runs off after crushing the Claydoll Dopant, Double prepares to give chase until the Claydoll Dopant reforms and walks off. Later, Wakana visits the Asakawa family's bakery for her show. However, Mister Question calls the bakery and tells her that he has an amazing present--and gives no hints. Using what they know about him, Philip states that Mister Question is someone Wakana knows.

Sneaking out, Wakana visits Philip as he learns of her family's past; her sister Saeko would take out the anger she had towards their father on Wakana, and their younger brother would help Wakana cope with the anger she had towards her sister, almost acting as her conscience. While this occurs, Motoko arrives to take her place in reviewing the Fumen ramen stand's products. With Wakana's help, Philip is able to deduce Mister Question's identity. After Philip promises to see her once this case is solved, Wakana makes her way to the Fumen ramen stand, and Philip's curiosity starts to get the best of him.

After Wakana finishes the show, Mister Question calls, and Wakana reveals him as her manager Tsuyoshi Ageo, who walks up and assumes his Dopant form. He abducts Wakana, and Shotaro calls upon Philip as he resists reading a Gaia Library book about Wakana. Double chases the Violence Dopant on the HardTurbuler, until assuming LunaTrigger and catching him in a net projected by the Trigger Magnum and Spider Shock. When freed, Wakana asks Ageo where he received the Gaia Memory. After professing his love for Wakana, he admits the Gaia Memory was a gift from someone else and runs off with Double in pursuit. Wakana goes to the Wind Wave studios, confronting Motoko who admits that she bought the Violence Memory and used Ageo to get rid of her as competition.

Infuriated, Wakana becomes the Claydoll Dopant to kill her, only to stop after remembing what both her younger brother and Philip told her. Taking advantage of Wakana's mercy as she leaves, Motoko decides to expose her on the air until Kirihiko arrives, becoming the Nasca Dopant to permanently silence Motoko. Elsewhere, Double LunaTrigger has defeated the Violence Dopant with a Trigger Stag Burst, dropping Ageo off on a rooftop once the Memory Break completes.

Later, perplexed by her knowledge of Gaia Memories, Philip calls Wakana to asks her if she has a Gaia Memory as she reminds him of their promise. After asking her to wait a bit longer for their meeting, Wakana discards the Claydoll Memory on the mansion's patio and walks away, only for Ryubee to pick it up moments later.
