Do you understand yet, Sorata? Probably not…but whatever. At least he managed to make up with Mashiro (while Aoyama was watching because her life is so much suffering). As for Jin and Misaki, that went basically the way I expected…Jin’s own fears are the reason he’s avoiding Misaki. So Christmas Eve failed for everyone…even Rita (unless…it couldn’t be).
Sorata got his second chance at a game competition…this is probably the one he manages to get right. I dunno…there’s still time for a last one if that’s the way they want to do it, but they’ve already had him fail once, so it’s probably enough. Either way, next week everyone goes home…the preview makes it look like they all go to Sorata’s house or something. I figure it’s more likely Sorata’s father talking in the preview than Jin or Ryuunosuke’s…though they are possible.
