This is bad…a few episodes ago, I would’ve immediately thought that the girls would use the rock to figure out that haunted hotel business. Now I’ve been desensitized because of the break we’ve had. I’m curious about this episode. Were the girls in the present the thieves that they actually saw in the past or were they just embodying them as part of the magic of the rock?
The first theory seems to contradict logic while the second theory is too coincidental because of the way the girls in the present seem to have their own will. They disappear in the end, but their memories only suggested one thief, not four. Final note: the scene with Saki and her younger self at the beginning was pretty legitimately funny. Next week, audition? Random, much?
