Well, it doesn’t look like Chaika got too much of a level up from that fight…other than skillful distractions with a cat. Frederica’s honestly the hero of that fight despite the fact that she had no lines this week. Besides that, we learn about some sort of mysterious fortune left behind by the former emperor…is that really meant as “wealth”, or is it supposed to mean something like a “will”? Or maybe it’s a fortune like the ones Vivi flash-backed to this week with her and Gilette? Either way, I don’t trust that term, so it’s hard to predict what’s to come.
Next week, it looks like the main group will be sidetracked from the island with the fortune temporarily by another hero. The two girls in white from the preview certainly are interesting…they could be twins. Or maybe they’re meant to suggest something about Chaika’s true nature. Wouldn’t that be interesting? This season is supposedly shorter than the previous one, so I assume they’d have to move faster when it comes to story events.
