What the heck? The assistant spoke! This is complete madness! I mean, the wilder form of him was pretty crazy (edit: my mistake…this was actually the grandfather…thanks to Vance for pointing it out!), but the idea that the assistant we’ve known up to now spoke as well is pretty nuts. I didn’t expect him to ever speak. But that aside, this episode was a bit weird, I guess. I hope I understood everything correctly.
Basically, we have this idea that the assistant imprinted his identity based on how people described him, so he was going to the forest to find out how Watashi wanted him to be or something. I wonder where that first personality came from, though…the grandfather’s descriptions? Oh well…time travel is always fun.
