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.
If she survives, I'll be bummed.
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.
Oh, man. Three let himself be killed so that he wouldn't know he caused Sarah's death.
That was heartbreaking. I can't say I blame him for not wanting to remember.
In any case, that cliffhanger wasn't much of a cliffhanger since they showed Ryo alive in the previews.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
