Bijou's Love Rival! is the 197th episode of the series and the 16th episode of Season Eight.
Bijou attempts to pretty herself up for Hamtaro, as Lapis walks by, wondering where her sister Lazuli went. As Snoozer told her, Lazuli went to Hamtaro's house, so she request that Bijou take her there. Bijou perceives this as wanting to hang out with Hamtaro, so for a while she tries to stray Lapis in a different direction from Hamtaro's house!
Lazuli later finds Bijou contemplating life near a river. She runs off... and then comes back sliding down a hill on a leaf. Bijou lectures her, but then Lazuli runs away. Bijou chases after her, but they both fall in a hole!
Bijou and Lazuli sing, and Hamtaro follows their voices and finds them. He, Oxnard and Lapis help Lazuli out, but Bijou stands, frozen by nervousness as Hamtaro is around. A mole makes her think otherwise.
Lapis kisses Bijou on the cheek after she assumes she was looking after Lazuli. Apparently, the same treatment was what Hamtaro's kiss was: a thank-you kiss! Bijou feels a little guilty, and apologizes to Hamtaro for "badmouthing" him.
