    Very interesting episode. I rate this one as good. Perhaps not great relative to some of the recent eps, but a good transitional ep. There seemed to be a number of subplots unfolding. I loved Riku's comment talking to Hagi...something like "what's your opinion?...oh, right, you don't have an opinion." I like the redemption undercurrent in Saya's logic; perhaps her hesitency isn't merely fear or anger...there is more than a hint of shame. And how does one deal with shame? In a paradoxical sense, there is an almost Buddhist dichotomy - er go, dharma/undharma - in Saya's yerning for hope, but realiziting that hope is beyond her reach. She needs something that she thinks she cannot have or does not deserve. Now, I don't believe for a moment that she is beyond hope or redemption, but in her description to Kai, it sounded like she believes that she is unforvigable. And what sadness there is in such a feeling. Ah, Solomon...next to Julia, Solomon is the most controvertial character for me. You love him, you hate him. Does he really want to protect Saya? Or does he want something else? Does he evenknow himself? I remain cynical despite his choices, but one cannot easily deny that Solomon is a complex character. Of course, he is evil and must be destroyed...but I digress. No, Julia, don't do it! Alas, Julia is misguided by Collins. She follows him in part because of who he once was and in part because she doesn't know what he has become.



    The die is cast. Diva compels Karl to take her to find Riku. They arive at the Red Shield and start killing everybody...



    I anxiously awate the next episode.moreless
