A Bad Gamble for the Possessed is the 6th chapter of the manga Tokyo Ghoul:re.
Urie and the rest who have driven Torso to the corner were stopped as Serpent appeared, claiming that Karao belongs to him. He then insults the CCG for being “No different from Aogiri Tree” for making artificial ghouls, and then faces Urie and the rest. Urie first blocks an attack using his kagune, consequently taking out his quinque. Serpent nevertheless beats him down. Shirazu counters Serpent with his kagune missiles but they are destroyed. Urie is weakened, and Mutsuki gets out of the taxi, but is petrified by fear as he questions if he can compete with Serpent. As Serpent was about to attack Mutsuki, Shirazu tries to give Mutsuki a chance to flee. Shirazu approaches Mutsuki and plans to retreat with him, but this angers Urie.
In Urie's flashback, S3 Squad members of the CCG are talking to a young Urie about how they withdrew from the battle against a mighty ghoul called the ‘One-Eyed Owl’. They apologized that they abandoned Urie’s father, Special-Class Urie in the battle.
With no other battle tactics in mind, Urie takes a bite out of his own arm in order to reactivate his kagune. He claims that if he would be able to take down an S-rated ghoul, his chances of getting more recognition than Sasaki would increase.
Sasaki suddenly appears right before Urie as the Quinx are about to get hit. Sasaki uses the blade quinque Yukimura, to cut the tip of Serpent’s kagune in half. Sasaki tries to strike once more, but is kicked away by Serpent. Sasaki grovels on the ground, as he wonders of an attack strategy. In his subconscious, Ken Kaneki, the young man from Haise's recurring nightmares, appears and claims that he is too weak to save his subordinates from Serpent's wrath. Kaneki repeatedly asks Sasaki to ‘accept’ him, but Haise dismisses this and decides to think on his own.
Sasaki asks Mutsuki to call Akira Mado, as he generates both his Kagune and kakugan, lastly cracking a finger as a warm up for battle.
