So this week’s episode is a simple preparation for the upcoming final battle…not too much going on. I realize I have somewhat of an obligation to discuss what really happened in that room between Rin and Shirou, so I’ll just get that out of the way. <insert R-rated discussion here> With all of that discussion aside, the only other thing to discuss is Saber’s clandestine discussion with Rin. I realize the simple explanation is that they were just coming up with the idea to share Rin’s magic with Shirou, but I feel like there wouldn’t be a need to hide the discussion from the audience in that case…so there’s probably some other dimension to the fight that they don’t want him to know.
As for next week’s episode, the preview mentions a character that shouldn’t be around because Caster is dead, which can only mean Assassin. If so, I would also be curious as to why he’s still around without his Master. Besides that, the preview makes it sound like the battle between Gilgamesh and Shirou will start as well. That should be an interesting fight, especially if Shirou really is able to pull off Unlimited Blade Works.
