In the Program[]

When Makoto Hashimoto's group (consisting of herself, Suzuko Arikawa, Fumiya Daichi, Yuki Ito , and Hajime Minami) were allowed to stay in the dorms while the rest of the class was forced to live in hellish conditions, the other students began to resent them, Yoko included. It's unknown if Yoko was addicted to the pills or not, but it seems like she wasn't. When the addicted students began firing at the others, Yoko was shot multiple times, killing her instantly. Her friend tried to avenge her, but was killed shortly after.
