    Best D.Gray-Man episode for a while. Allen goes past 100% synchronization and finishes off Tyki's Noah. Road comes in and tells Allen she's going to rip Lavi's heart, while keeping everyone under her candle stakes. Lavi's dilemma begins.

    Review: Wonderful episode. Allen's new power was nicely animated, and the pace of the final fight was nicely done. Tyki's actually not all of a bad person at all. Road's hot head was a nice surprise, and I'm waiting to see Lavi's dilemma inside his illusion, and, by the preview, we'll see more of Allen's Crown Clown, which I do really want to see more from. But, against Lavi...? Can't wait.moreless
