The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya
"Someday in the Rain" is an episode of The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya anime. Though originally broadcast as episode 9 of season 1, it is the last episode of the series in the in-universe chronology, and so functions as the season 2 finale.
"Someday in the Rain" was not based on any story from the light novels, making it the only original episode of the anime. It also stands out as the only episode which is not from Kyon's perspective.
- Haruhi decides the SOS Brigade needs a heater during the winter. The store they advertised in the Adventures of Mikuru film has promised them one, and she sends Kyon to retrieve it.
- Haruhi takes more pictures of Mikuru Asahina.
- Kyon discovers the store had agreed to give them the heater in return for an advertising spot in their next film, which Haruhi promised.
- Kyon returns and falls asleep.
- Kyon awakes to realize that Haruhi had been waiting for him to leave. He also discovers two cardigans on him used as blankets, implied to have been left by Haruhi and Yuki.
- Kyon and Haruhi walk home together under an umbrella as Kyon discovers a playful side of Haruhi Suzumiya.
With winter setting in, Haruhi orders Kyon to pick up a heater. With him gone, she takes pictures of Mikuru in various costumes for the movie's DVD cover, Itsuki helps, and Yuki is left alone to read. When Kyon returns, he finds only Yuki in the club room and falls asleep waiting for the others. He is woken by Haruhi (the only other student who hasn't gone home) putting her cardigan on him to keep him warm. Haruhi is mortified at being caught, but Kyon is curious as to who the second cardigan belongs to. Haruhi is in a good mood as she and Kyon share an umbrella on the walk home through the rain.
