"Judai VS Asuka: Face-down card of Hidden Emotions" is the one hundred and sixty-second episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX anime. It first aired in Japan on November 21, 2007.
The Tag Dueling tournament reaches its final match: Jaden and Alexis against Hassleberry and Blair. Jaden and Alexis still are not working well together, and Blair activates a card allowing them to switch partners. Alexis struggles with her decision on what to do when after graduating and with her feelings for Jaden, which the latter seems oblivious to.
The final Duel of the Tag Dueling tournament will be Jaden and Alexis from the senior block against Hassleberry and Blair from the junior block. Alexis comments that Jaden isn't enjoying Dueling as he used to. Jaden acts as if he hadn't noticed this, while Blair makes a last second adjustment to her Deck before the Duel begins. Alexis plans to Summon "Cyber Prima" but misses the timing to activate "Prima Light" during her opponent's turn. When Jaden's turn comes, he Tributes "Cyber Tutu" once again not checking Alexis' Set card, unraveling her plans further. Jaden realizes that Alexis was right - he doesn't really enjoy Dueling anymore, as his recent Duels have all been life-or-death. Jaden at first seems to make use of her card by using "Tag Request", however he then Tributes both his monster and Alexis's monster to summon "Elemental Hero Bladedge". Alexis then questions what he is doing as "Prima Light" is useless now. Jaden then activates "Hero Heart" to halve "Bladedge"'s ATK until the End Phase and allow it to attack twice this turn. He then has "Bladedge" attack the two tokens. Chazz and Syrus note that Jaden is doing a heartless move as he is inflicting Piercing Damage against two Defense Position tokens with 0 DEF.
After attacking and destroying Hassleberry and Blair's tokens, the latter reminds Jaden that this is an amazing duel. Jaden is touched by those words and notes he has never said his catchphrase for a long time. However his happiness is interrupted by Alexis who is angry at Jaden for his actions. Alexis notes she thought Jaden finally decided to cooperate, but she was foolish to think for even a second that Jaden would do that. Jaden is confused as he notes he used her monster too, but she explains she is talking about how he used it. She is now finally fed up with Jaden's actions since she believes he doesn't care about her feelings. Blair after hearing this realizes this is her chance. Alexis tells him go on without her, as he obviously doesn't need her win, since he took control of all the previous Duels without utilizing Alexis' cards or strategies. Blair activates her face-down "Partner Change", which allows her to switch sides with an opponent if they agree. Blair and Alexis switch partners. Hassleberry is disappointed that the concept of senior students against junior students is ruined, and Alexis angrily tells him they'll beat Jaden and Blair down until they can't get back up. Jaden notes to Blair they'll win the duel which greatly angers Alexis and she notes that Jaden seemed happy to end his partnership with her, but Jaden states it isn't like that. Jaden seems to work much better with Blair, checking and using her face-down cards rather than ignoring them. This angers Alexis greatly as Jaden did not even bother to check her face-downs. Jaden comments it's been a long time since he and Alexis last Dueled.
When Alexis activates "Doble Passé", Jaden comments that she used the same card during their first Duel, and that it was his first real impression of her. Alexis responds that she thought that he was an interesting guy. Jaden states he's glad he was able to meet her. Satisfied that Jaden now realizes how he's been acting, Alexis activates "Mystical Space Typhoon" to destroy Blair's "Partner Change", causing them to switch back. However, they seem to be in a hopeless situation after Hassleberry Summons "Super Conductor Tyranno" and Alexis' turn comes. Jaden tells her to check his Set cards. Using them, Alexis and Jaden win the Duel and the tournament. That night, as Jaden was about to return to his dormitory, he sees Alexis waiting for him. She tells Jaden she was glad to have met him, but it's heavily implied she wanted to confess that she had feelings for him. Jaden, oblivious to Alexis' emotions, thanks her for the Duel and smiles at her the way he used to. A tear fell down Alexis' cheek as she watches Jaden go back to the dormitory.
