Do not even ask dear Reader, because I have no idea why I stopped with these posts! Hey, nobody is perfect, right? And really, what counts is that I am here to finish this off, al-right? Al-right!
This episode should have been subtitled – TRUE COLORS because that is what everyone brings on the table this time around – their true colours! Now of course, they are not out 100 percent yet but really, anyone with a brain can put the two and two together to get that nice four in figuring out where everyone stands! Some characters were just too obvious while others still left a bit of a mystery to them!
Also, some of the mysteries I have had about certain characters have been put to rest, the closest in question being of course Yuriko-sama herself! Remember, we have been wondering if she is innocent and it is the curse that is killing off all of her rivals or is she really that sinister, in that she is the killer that’s using the curse as cover while in fact she is the one doing all the killings?!
This episode tried to play us in thinking that she was the bad guy when we saw her jealousy rear its ugly head towards Yuriko and she used Misaki’s own jealous and hatred towards Yuriko to ask her to swap out the dummy knife that was to be used in the play with a real knife! This of course was recorded by a certain Stalker boy who we are speculating, at the moment, that she working for Mizuki!
But by the end we actually see that Yuriko-sama was actually indeed innocent as she is kidnapped on her way home, after a few nights of being Stalked! Who did it though? Well, if anyone was paying attention then they would know who because this one was one of those mentioned obvious Baddies outed. I am of course speaking of the one and only deceivingly cute Yuriko-sama Club president Yuri-kun!
Not only did he drop hints of his shadiness when he is shown to have been baiting poor Misaki all this time, but that door scene really was the epitome of Evil Bastard image! But why was he so against her feelings?! Could it be that…!
Which brings us to the other alert bell ringer, Sensei himself! There was this scene during the rehearsals where he gave off the creepiest vibes I have ever seen! It was so out of character and out of nowhere that my hairs stood on edge! I just know he is hiding something! In addition, there was a moment between him and Yuri-kun that screamed – HA! GAY! This also was during the rehearsals! There definitely is something between them two!
Speaking of Misaki, she too is going off the rails! She is totally losing it because Yuri-kun is increasing showing affections for Yuriko but something is off about all those actions! Really, I guess in Misaki’s case, she can’t see it any other way that Yuri-kun being interested in Yuriko instead of her! But unlike her, we know better! Even if Yuri-kun was interested in Yuriko, which he isn’t, at least I don’t think he is, Yuriko is more interested in Mizuki than she is of him so really, if only Misaki wasn’t so blinded by love!
That of course bring us to Yuriko herself! This episode showed her growth the most! There was at least three incidents where she showed that she has grown up! She is getting more confident! She was literally praised by Mizuki as many times during this one episode because she found out two important clues to whatever the heck Mizuki is up to and doing research for!
Other than the observations that Yuriko made for Mizuki, during the moment of the episode, where they held hands, as Yuriko practiced her lines with only Mizuki around, Mizuki tells her of Yuriko-sama’s kidnapping as she apparently did not return home from school the day before! Yuriko gets scared and as if on cue, Mizuki starts her catch phrase of Yuriko not being scared because…But before she finishes the line, Yuriko covers Mizuki’s hand that was holding her side arm and looks into her eyes. She finishes the line for Mizuki, the on her protecting Yuriko! Yuriko finishes by saying that she trusts her!
Then they have Hand Sex!
Ah, these two are just too cute! Like, just get a room already or kiss, because you have had countless NOW KISS moments since the show started and in fact, a couple this episode alone! The other being much earlier on during the episode at their special place where they have lunch outside and it is the first time Mizuki praises Yuriko in the episode for her genius! Mizuki says that she has to follow up on the information Yuriko uncovered by asking someone to look into it and when Yuriko asks who (totally not jealous), Mizuki does the ‘it’s a secret’ cute moment in the cutest way possible by tapping Yuriko’s nose with every syllable of the word!
Jesus weeps at the cuteness of it all!
Not only is Mizuki boosting Yuriko’s confidence but so do the people around her, especially the fellow students doing the play where they playfully kneel and praise her as if she were the real Yuriko-sama! The real Yuriko-sama was of course watching from the doorway, a scene which pushed her over the edge and forced her to go for the jugular and con Misaki into switching the knives! Misaki for her part, almost wanted to be the one to kiss Yuriko with her own hands because she hated her that much!
Another player who comes forth is Asaka-senpai, the only survivor of attempted Yuriko-sama curses that have gone around during the current trials! It seems like she too is working with Mizuki! Seriously, I am lost at to what role Mizuki is playing and what her game is! Please for the love of God, do not be the bad guy!!!
Thankfully, so far there hasn’t been any concrete evidence pointing at such an outcome and from the looks of things, not anytime soon as the current bad guy has been outed as we see him dragging a huge ass suitcase, very obviously containing a person, or a dead body! Is it poor Yuri-sama? The culprit is for sure Yuri-kun of course! Gotta say, that was a shocker for sure! I could not have even imagined it before this episode! Things are turning remarkably interesting! I cannot wait to find out more!
Until next episode,
