Fate/Apocrypha Episode 14: Team up


I don't know if there's something going on with the second half, but I'm still having issues with this series. I'm starting to wonder if I gave the series too much leeway in the first half because I recognized that it was still ramping up. I was so surprised that Caster went down in a single episode that I was really expecting the golem to get back up at the end.

If Caster was willing to sacrifice everything just to get his golem operational, even his own life, what the heck was holding him back? It doesn't even seem like he needed to betray the Black Faction. His original plan was to use Gordes after all, and it's not like he cared if the Black Faction killed him in retaliation. Why not just finish the golem?

I'm also not really losing much sleep over Caster's Master, who ended up as the golem core in the end. He had basically no introduction or screen time, after all. I was curious about his final question about why Caster was trying to create a human too, but I guess that's not going anywhere with both dead.

I will admit that this scene with the hippogriff refusing to join the fight was a surprising laugh in this episode. It might have been my favorite moment in the episode.

On the other hand, the scene between Mordred and Jeanne seemed to be going for the same comedic effect, but felt much less effective. It felt extraneous and took too much time just to negotiate a Command Spell.

So does Sieg have to use a Command Spell every time he transforms? That seems incredibly inconvenient for something that only lasts a few minutes.

Finally, what exactly happened to Chiron's Noble Phantasm? Was it the heat vision thing that he used to see Adam's weak point? It felt like he was supposed to make a final strike, but it never came.
