And so the battle is over. As expected, Archer didn’t die quite so easily and shows up in the end to save both Rin and Shirou. Gilgamesh seemed to die in the silliest way this week too…he says something about being reluctant to use Ea because he doesn’t want the unworthy to lay eyes on it, but Shirou had already seen it (and failed to copy it). So what exactly was the problem with using it in the Unlimited Blade Works sooner?
Anyway, it looks like next week’s episode will end up being an epilogue. I didn’t even realize there was enough epilogue content for a full episode, so I didn’t even consider that possibility. I was expecting this week’s episode to hang one of the battles to resolve next week. What exactly is supposed to happen next week? Rin and Shirou going to get married or something?
