Episode guide
Layer 12
Layer 13 : Ego is the thirteenth and final episode of Serial Experiments Lain.


Lain is ready to give her entire physical being and become one with the Wired itself. Eiri attempts to use the newly virtual Lain in order obtain infinite power. But Alice convinces Lain to take a stand against the so-called "god of the Wired" and take irreversible action in the process.

Trivia Edit

  • After Lain used her cyberpotent abilities as a virtual goddess to erase everyone's memory of her existence, Arisu had grown older and married.
  • In a scene from this episode, Arisu recognizes Lain and notices that she seems familiar. She asks if she was one of the children she had taught in one of her classes, and Lain says she wasn't. Arisu cannot remember Lain, but somehow noticed she seemed familiar. This shows that the bond between Arisu and Lain was most likely a very strong one at that.
