Well, that was a little random. The show switched to a different set of characters and then looped one’s death until another sacrificed himself to save her. I’m curious whether the truly important character in this episode wasn’t the girl that survived, but rather the cat. Maybe the cat was the only looping the boy and trying to save the girl. The cat certainly had the red eyes that the other characters with powers seem to have.
Maybe they’ll explain everything next week. It’s also very possible it had nothing to do with the cat and everything to do with the white-haired guy that didn’t appear at all in the second half of the episode. I’m really not too sure what to make of it. I’m not even sure if I should write the boy off as dead. Is he the one talking in the preview? The one saying he died two years ago? Was this entire episode a flashback?
