Margery tells of her troubled past and explains how dangerous and cruel the world of flame hazes can be.
This episode was great, it made me very interested in what was going on and odd enough it also kind of made me disappointed in the show as well, but in a good way. Some of the things they focused on were incredibly interesting. Not just Margeryâ€™s past, but the entire topic of this flame haze world. Having things like organizations, long complicated pasts, reasons for becoming flame hazes, and just the general â€œcultureâ€ and the world of flame hazes, their motivation, was great. Even though this show has been focusing on a flame haze, Shana, they havenâ€™t really shown that kind of focus. Theyâ€™ve really focused on her as a character, things like her feelings and so on. Iâ€™m disappointed because this episode showed that there is amazing potential for some really interesting stories, not just back stories on characters but just stories about events in the past regarding flame hazes that he show has yet to touch on. Things like some war and things as simple as relationships between people who havenâ€™t seen each other in hundreds of years. The flame hazes have their own world really and the show has yet to touch on that as much as I think it should. This episode was great and I really really hope that they have more episodes like it. Not the Margery part necessarily, but just the general focus they had when they were telling her back-story, really involving that unique world. Like, I want to know how Tiamat and Alastor met essentially or friction they had when they each got new hazes and were saying how they were blah blah, I donâ€™t really care the specifics, but they need to include this flame haze world more.
Other then just using this whole flame haze world and history, it was very interesting to see Margery get some development. Sheâ€™s one of my least favorite characters really just because sheâ€™s never really proved to actually do anything. She hasnâ€™t shown any development before this and even after being introduced to the series she didnâ€™t really do anything. However her past seems interesting enough that it could make her overall character more interesting and a bit more redeeming.
