As advertised last week, this week’s episode shows Osamu’s history joining Border. To be honest, it’s not all that interesting…while it shows the details of Chika’s brother’s disappearance, it doesn’t really show anything that we couldn’t infer from the comments already made about it in the series. There are no real extra clues about where he is. I guess the episode is just a cool down, so what else can we do?
It looks like next week’s episode will introduce a new mission of sorts for Osamu and his team. Will the fact that his mother is in his hospital room be relevant? Honestly, my first reaction when seeing the preview was that Karasawa would come by saying that they “had high hopes” for Osamu or something…maybe that they were grooming him for something. But I’d say it might be more likely that they’re planning a rescue operation for the agents captured in the invasion. I guess we’ll see next time.
