Not entirely sure where CuteSylveon42 got this title from but they posted in on Bulbapedia so am using it as my source

Set to air May 26

This title is the most mysterious of the bunch. I wonder what the unopening door is?

Only thing off the top of my head is the entrance to Area Zero but they don't get to Paldea until the following episode, so that wouldn't make any sense. Maybe there is just an unopening door on the Brave Asagi for some reason? Don't know why that would be the case or why they wouldn't already know about it and what's in it, though.

Well, the core RVR's would know, not Liko and Roy. As for what could be inside? I'll throw in an obligatory "Nidothing has been with them the whole time" theory.

It's not even a theory - it was explicitly shown that they're on the airship when they got thrown around during the storm

What's more impressive is that they've been on the ship for at least a week and haven't run into them

Summary courtesy of Dephender at Serebii

The Rising Volt Tacklers' airship is very low on provisions, potentially as a result of someone snitching food. Reluctantly, the crew splits up to go buy foodstuffs while Liko watches the ship. After swiftly finishing her laundry and cleaning assignments, she decides to sneak a peek at what Roy called "a very special secret".
 
I wish it would have been Liko and Roy watching the ship together, but it's fine to have more focus on just Liko since Roy just got his big focus episodes. Since Roy is the one who had the secret tho, hopefully it means he'll have some level of importance here.
 
At long last...THE LUDLOW-NIDOTHING REVEAL! ;)
(the doctor gave him some REALLY great pills, and he took VERY good care of his voice.)

Mystery Kid is named "Dot". Only time will tell if that's short for something/a nickname. ...wait. Dot. NiDOThing. Assuming it's no coincidence, that's clever foreshadowing.
So an intentional pun by the English translators? As I said before, Nidothing is so far the only Horizons character, besides the Pokemon obviously, who have had a complete name change due to the Japanese name, Gurumin, being a pun on costumed characters that would be lost in translation.

Roy got his arc. The series focuses more on Liko, she is the main MC.
