Lord El-Melloi II Case Files Episode 10: The nature of the crime


Waver has a mental argument with Kayneth

It's certainly starting to feel like the pieces of this mystery are coming together. It's nice to see Waver back in action this week, since many of the characters seem somewhat hopeless without him. I'm not sure I'm totally on board with how the time manipulation is being used in this episode, but the way it's invoked is interesting, at least. I don't know if it's because I inherently have trouble following this series, but I'm not sure I'm convinced of the culprit yet.

Waver wishes to see Iskandar again

I liked Waver's mental argument with Kayneth, even if Kayneth isn't my favorite character in the world. I think Waver has decent motivation for joining the Grail War again, even if he acknowledges that Iskandar wouldn't recognize him. He just wants to prove that Iskandar had the qualifications to win all along.

Gray is a replica

I think I'm okay with the fact that the battle between Gray and Hephaestion just ends. I wonder if Hephaestion's interactions with Gray are meant to parallel Iskandar's past with Waver in some way. I'm curious about the fact that Hephaestion says that she and Gray are the same while commenting on Gray being a replica of Saber.

Trisha prepares for her death

Trisha's involvement in her own death didn't go the way I expected, but I like how it was used here. Adashino as a character seems to perpetually rub me the wrong way, but I do like the idea of Trisha attempting to hide her eyes even if she couldn't avoid her death.

Waver asks for motive

I have trouble buying Adashino as the culprit, even if the series seems to be pointing at her. The scene cuts to her after Luvia mentions the "man without a heart" having a sister-in-law on the train, and she certainly seems to know too much. I definitely don't buy Karabo as the culprit, since he seems to have no control over his eyes.

Melvin attempts to buy back the eyes

Well, that's one way to solve the problem. Hey, Melvin's here to be useful, right?
