The sad thing is that they have yet to not struggle against anything.
Boy, let me tell you. It is incredibly more unpleasant to watch this first thing in the morning than in the evening after I’m well-fed and have settled into my nest for an evening. Also, maybe it’s just the week and a half plus early morning haze, but what the hell was stupid doing on the ledge? I don’t remember her exactly being kept until lock and key, but that’s not quite the same as a ledge. So if we summarize her side of the story this week, she stepped out onto a ledge, fell off a few seconds later, and then this allowed her to admit that she liked the guy she follows around like a dog, unlocking her latent magical powers, at which point she disappeared from the episode again. Great.
Elsewhere, and wait for this surprise development, Lis ran into a room of generic CG monsters, and got immediately beaten by all of them. Then Ilya had a change of heart and came back, letting both of them immediately kill them all in one attack. Good god, is this show a slave to its formula. Its horrible horrible formula. Q and Idiot predictibly went nowhere beyond some heavy petting and licking. The magical maids’ healing tongues were more amusing, and those involved snake tongues/boiling saliva that healed wounds. That could’ve just been the porn music though instead of Idiot squirming in terror about cooties.
