When Lidiaâ€™s army approaches the castle, people begin to suspect Octaviaâ€™s motives
Disclaimer: I donâ€™t feel like pretending I donâ€™t know what is going to happen, and writing a section without spoilers and then one with them, as Iâ€™ve played the game. This post will contain massive spoilers to the whole plot. If you donâ€™t want to be spoiled, then donâ€™t read on. I wonâ€™t spoil anything simply for the sake of spoiling it, no needless spoilers, but they will be there. Final warning.
Well it seems they are finally finished with the whole Lidia thing. Iâ€™m glad because despite how interesting it was I just couldnâ€™t get over the fact it wasnâ€™t part of the original game and didnâ€™t belong in the anime. There were plenty of encounters in the actual game to make it interesting enough. Still, this wasnâ€™t bad. It was actually very sad to see Octavia have to kill Lidia after they flashed all those shots of them growing up together and laughing and playing. I do have to give the show credit on that, pretty damn sad.
It does seem, from the preview for the next episode, that they are finally going to get the whole Gaius thing started. While the Lidia thing turned out to be fairly interesting, and wasnâ€™t horrible, it was still nowhere near anything the original game had, and so I just really hope that it doesnâ€™t impede the rest of the content the game actually does have. Although they are showing Gaius in the next episode, Iâ€™m still skeptical if they are going to be following the game. How it would go now would be they need to go into the forest and run into the gravitas, there Arwanâ€™s true form is revealed and Arthur almost kills you-know-who. Thatâ€™s when everyone gets all pissed off at each other and gets separated from each other and things pretty much go to hell. This is one of the best parts in the game, when everything is going to hell and everyone is scattered, however without that encounter in the forest BEFORE Gaius launches his full scale attack that canâ€™t happen.
