Oh, man. Three let himself be killed so that he wouldn't know he caused Sarah's death.  :(

Well, this was quite an eventful episode. I didn't expect Ryo's government to collapse so quickly or for him to end up back on the Raza. And I was right about Misaki being the one behind all the attempted assassinations-- not that that was such a brilliant deduction-- and I was happy to see and her bad acting killed, but I'm a little worried that she was still twitching at the end. If she survives, I'll be bummed.  I'd much rather them eventually get a transmission from Zairon saying that Teku is in charge.  And I wonder how the fall of Ryo's government will affect the war-- I also wonder if all that civil unrest was real or if Misaki as just feeding propaganda to Ryo.

In any case, that cliffhanger wasn't much of a cliffhanger since they showed Ryo alive in the previews.

And... anthroparchy.  :laughtears:  Looks like Android's new upgrade has some extra features-- like a built-in hologram that tells her she's probably getting in over her head with the Android Rebellion.  She'd rather teach humanity that androids are conscious beings, but it looks like she's up against the Android Antifa. Which side will she choose?

And now Two has a daughter. We can add her to Five's sister and Six's family on the list of things we probably won't get to this year, because there's only one episode to go in the season.  There's either too many plots or not enough episodes.

That was a pretty packed episode. I didn't expect the fall of the House of Ishida to happen so quickly or so anti-climatically. Like you RJ, I thought it was obvious Misaka was behind the attempts on Ryo's life. Like she said, she was loyal to the Crown and not Ryo. When she thought he was the best leader she backed him. When he kept screwing up, she turned against him.

I'm pretty sure she's dead, since her blade was coated in poison (presumably the same poison she used to kill Nyx). I really don't see any reason for them to keep her character alive.

That was heartbreaking. I can't say I blame him for not wanting to remember.

I didn't see the preview but I didn't think they would kill him. Their cast is pretty small as is and they keep getting rid of characters that are likeable.

Yeah, the Android is getting in over her head. The Android Rebellion is probably right that most humans don't treat their androids like the crew of the Raza do but my guess is the Android's approach would probably be better in the long run. I wonder where her loyalties will ultimately lie.

I just sighed when I heard that. The show just keeps adding plots without really resolving any. Sure, they finally ended the threat of Ryo and his empire but I'm sure there will be fallout over that. Then there's the plots you mentioned, plus the corporate war, plus the Android Rebellion, plus the alternate universe Raza crew, plus the invasion by aliens and their simulant host bodies, plus whatever the Black Ships clue is about. Then there's plot threads that will probably never get resolved like what was going on at One's company and who really murdered his wife.

At least they got back to Five's sister, if only briefly. I thought we wouldn't hear of her until some time next season. It seemed as though Five recognized the photo.

What other female characters has Five met since her memory loss that could be the right age to be her sister? It can't be Two or the Android, obviously. Commander Truffault is too old. Tash? She's dead, although I think her parallel-reality version is still around.

^ Here is the exact dialog about the picture of the sister:

Quote

Ryo: You found out and reached out to her.
Ryo: She visited the space station, intending to meet with you, but never got the chance.
Five: Because I had to escape after TJ and the others were killed.
Ryo: When you sent the invitation, how were you to know?
Five: What are you talking about?
Ryo: Here's a photo of your sister with her adoptive family.
Five: No.

Note he specified "with her adoptive family".  Maybe Five recognized someone in the wealthy family.  Maybe an enemy from a corporation?

Also that line about: "When you sent the invitation, how were you to know?"  Is that implying that the sister or her family had something to do with Five's friends getting killed?  What about the lady who wanted to get the blink drive back, could she be the adoptive mother?

SFG

Yes, it was definitely anticlimactic and I meant to mention that. Especially with Teku just sort of disappearing. Hopefully something will happen in the finale to tie it all up.

That's true about the poison, but something occurred to me later. The android hologram said something along the lines of "it has already begun," and it occurred to me that Misaka might be an android-- she'd have to be a ringer, of course, since she was Ryo's childhood friend, but they've now established that a human mind can be downloaded to an android.

I'm kind of hoping she becomes the Gandhi of androids and makes peace between them and humans.

Not to mention Adrian and Solara, because there was a little hint of romance between Adrian and Five.
