I guess this is as close as you get to the obligatory beach episode. As hinted last week, the Red Chaika team returns to the story. Also, Gillette makes his first reappearance (no one saw that coming). The hero from this week ends up being the most cowardly of the group…hardly even worth spending time on him, I would say. But it looks like the main focus will be island with this mysterious “fortune” after all.
I’m getting really curious about the secret of this island. Fredrica mentions that the dragoons attacking Chaika were not really dragoons, suggesting that they are probably either illusions or fakes created by magic. There’s the slight possibility that they are impostors similar to how Chaika is an impostor of the “dead” Chaika. Hints at the true nature of the Chaikas, maybe? Hopefully we find out more next week.
