And a whole, whole lot of empty posturing.
Ugh. Apparently they’re going to be riding this arc to the end of the show which means it’s time to stretch the hell out of everything, which means in turn that the episode was about 19 minutes of rubbing things and posturing before ending with the shocking cliffhanger of dumbass being wiped out of every resident’s mind. I also can’t remember how many episodes ago it was that they were both reduced to catatonic wimpering piles by being more than 10 feet from each other, but I’m pretty sure that neither has shown any kind of growth that would allow that.
If one was expecting some kind of clever way around the whole telepathy thing too, then prepare to be disappointed too. Maybe they’re saving it for Shiro and the grand finale because they do love to gas on about how she’s the glorious wonderchild when all she’s actually done is humiliate an imbecile and job during ass-pull chess to make her brother seem better. Of course, they couldn’t have been telegraphing that was his grand plan at the end any harder than if he was wearing a neon sign instead of static-ing out as he disappeared.
She seems to be doing fine.
