This is bad…a few episodes ago, I would’ve immediately thought that the girls would use the rock to figure out that haunted hotel business. Now I’ve been desensitized because of the break we’ve had. I’m curious about this episode. Were the girls in the present the thieves that they actually saw in the past or were they just embodying them as part of the magic of the rock?
The first theory seems to contradict logic while the second theory is too coincidental because of the way the girls in the present seem to have their own will. They disappear in the end, but their memories only suggested one thief, not four. Final note: the scene with Saki and her younger self at the beginning was pretty legitimately funny. Next week, audition? Random, much?
So sad that Rider had to die, but it had to happen. I personally thought his death was pretty cool, but I would have liked him to give Gilgamesh a slightly harder time. Can’t have it all, I guess. Waver smartly preserves his life by getting rid of his Command Seals last week…he didn’t turn out to be so bad of a character. Definitely the best pair of the Grail War, but unfortunately not winner material.
We also find out that Berserker is Lancelot. I figured he had a relation to the Black Knight, but I didn’t expect it to be Lancelot. Not that I know that much about the Black Knight (just the stuff from Fire Emblem, which is the only reason I recognize the sword Arondight). I’d say that Rider/Gilgamesh had the better battle this week. Hopefully the battles next week are cool too.
