Lenalee tries to deal with the news that Allen may never be an exorcist as she learns of the fate that has befallen him while her and Lavi get orders to continue with their search for Cross.
This episode was pretty good. It wasnâ€™t nearly as action packed and drama filled as the last three or so episodes, but completely understandable considering they have to show the transition after the string of events. However from the way he characters are set up and from the preview for next episode I think that they wonâ€™t return to the amount of fluff and filler episodes theyâ€™ve had. The general situation of the characters and of the war going on has progressed too far to really fall back into that slump so I do have high hopes for the rest of the series.
One of the more interesting things about this episode was the weird dream thing Allen had where he was kind of weird looking and looked into the lake. The lake ahs been featured in several of the OPs and EDs, even that particular scene with Lenalee having Allen on her lap and her crying. It has to mean something but they didnâ€™t quite get there. It will be interesting to find out what the hell is going on as it ended on a rather weird bit with some evil Allen grabbing good Allen.
I absolutely loved Miranda. Although she has a new sleek outfit and a refined power and weapon she still has the insanely pathetic and depressing personality that is absolutely hilarious. One of the things that is great about her is that many times someone who thinks about themselves that way will get some serious focus on that part of their life with Miranda it is completely for humor and just makes her whole character very fun. Not even taking into account her power just the whole I can never do anything right thing of hers is hilarious. I thought the scene with her coming off the boat was great, making it look like sheâ€™s all cool but showing sheâ€™s the same person. Plus, her power is pretty great too, even if it does have its limitations such as things go back to the way they were it can still do a hell of a lot, like the time with Road it can be a place to recover wounds and then go fight, although you receive the wounds later at least you can continuously fight with 100 percent of your strength.
