Episode Concluded is an end result for certain areas of Final Fantasy X-2 during Chapter 5. This result indicates that the area's events have concluded, but were not completed to the fullest possible extent, which would have resulted in Episode Complete. If a player receives Episode Concluded for an area, they may miss out on certain special items or Garment Grids that can only be received by obtaining Episode Complete. Notably, the Mascot dressphere will not be given if any area ends with an Episode Concluded. In the International and HD Remaster versions, however, it is still possible to obtain one in the current playthrough by winning the Youth League Tournament.
In general, Episode Concluded is something most players would likely avoid. Dedicated players, however, might wish to explore it, as it sometimes offers alternate scenes and additional dialogue that shed new light on various characters. For example, pinning the blame on either Rin or Prophet for the Mi'ihen Highroad Mystery will result in Episode Concluded, but pinning Rin is the only way to obtain Gippal's Sphere (pinning Prophet does not grant any special item, but does result in a highly amusing scene). If the player has already completed the game once, New Game Plus offers the opportunity to obtain these scenes and explore alternate outcomes without any penalty.
