Tears to Tiara – 10

Arthur struggles to accept Octavia as part of their group after she recovers from her wounds.

Disclaimer: I don’t feel like pretending I don’t know what is going to happen, and writing a section without spoilers and then one with them, as I’ve played the game. This post will contain massive spoilers to the whole plot. If you don’t want to be spoiled, then don’t read on. I won’t spoil anything simply for the sake of spoiling it, no needless spoilers, but they will be there. Final warning.

I have to say I’m a bit disappointed in the show for how they eventually had Octavia join up. She just kind of said forget it when it came to the empire and that’s nowhere near how it worked out in the game, and this is actually a crucial character point for her. In the game she wanted to go back but Arawn, knowing the empire was collecting bodies and that she would be “imprisoned” again, like she was when they found her, he knew she would be killed. He then attempted to effectively hire her as a mercenary for them and she misunderstood this as a marriage proposal. For one thing it adds to the humor of Arawn having all these girls who not only like him but are technically and officially his wives. I missed that but even without that it seemed odd for her to just forget about going back with no real reason, be it marriage or being hired.

The whole Morgan thing was a bit weird. I don’t think it played out as well as they were trying. It wasn’t in the game at all. The only red item in the game was the “Red Thread” which let you have sex with Epona. Other than that there was no Morgan back-story involving some red branch or anything so it felt it didn’t really fit too well.
