Dera is busted…so he is a robot bird after all…why else would he have a “communication function”? Well, it looks like we might have a character that can serve as a check for him…it’s about time. That guy just does whatever he wants too much. Now he will feel the fear!
So if Choi is planning to stay until the communication function is fixed, I would interpret that as meaning she will stay until the end of the show (since it’s coming up pretty soon). I wonder if her apparent affection for the prince will come up in the search for the bride. What did she notice about Tamako at the very end of the episode? Is she really still the target?
