Wait, so the battle between Shirou and Archer still isn’t over? It looks like Avalon, which was very relevant in the first adaptation of Fate/stay Night is becoming relevant in this series too. That sort of convenient plot armor was really annoying in the original series, though, so I’m not sure I like seeing it in this series too. That being said, I think we can all agree that the main story of this week’s episode was Lancer. Though I question a Command Seal that doesn’t have full effect (if Lancer didn’t have to kill himself immediately, why couldn’t have just pulled out a cigarette or something?…technically counts as killing yourself), I can probably let it slide just because of the cool stuff Lancer got to do.
So how do things play out now that Kirei is dead? He seemed to be the only one with a legitimate plan to make the Grail appear…does Gilgamesh now just take his place? Or worse yet, does Shinji do it (getting tired of that guy)? That aside, theoretically next week’s episode resolves the fight between Shirou and Archer. Let’s see how it goes.
