Overall quite an unexpected episode to watch. Things are definitely getting a lot more interesting, but the way the story unfolds this week, it’s kinda unique. Not sure if it’s good or bad, but we’ll know about that in the next episode or so. The suspense is still there, and a lot really happened this week. Quite a development really. I’m trying to avoid talking about any spoilers in this paragraph, so sorry about that.
I fell a bit sad knowing that Satoru didn’t manage to save Kayo in the end. It’s true what his mom said though, there’s only so much one can do. I keep saying that he needs to rely more on his mom, but even that doesn’t seems good enough. Maybe in the end, the only way to solve all this has to be him alone. I’m not so sure how I liked about him going back to the present and all. I have mix feelings about it, but if it’s for the best, then I guess I’ll be patient about it.
At the moment, somehow it felt like Kayo’s mom is at fault behind all this. But I doubt it’s really her fault. Remember when Kayo was back home, her mom was actually out. I bet the killer who did all this actually beat her up good, and killed her. That explains why the boyfriend was panicking and Kayo’s mom was sorta speechless. The serial killer improvised and changed his plan, obviously. There is really nothing much Satoru could do anyway if he stayed there, and bam, back to the present.
He is back to the original timeline, and escaping the cops. I guess if he stayed there and didn’t run away, he’ll be going to the prison for sure. The serial killer is very sharp and base on how thing goes, he managed to put everyone else in jail without getting himself involved. Previously in the past when Kayo died on the 2nd March, Yuuki was at fault, but the recent Kayo who died after the birthday, it was different on the 3rd March. I bet this time it all points to Kayo’s mom instead of Yuuki. They didn’t even mentioned about Yuuki this week, I bet Yuuki didn’t go to jail this time though. Keep it mind, I still think the killer is Satoru’s homeroom teacher. While there is still no evidence behind it, he seems like the only guy who could pull such a thing.
Satoru’s action definitely changed the course of the future. I guess we’ll be seeing him going back and forth from now on. Airi really saved Satoru’s butt, and she even punch that pizza guy to the face. Such badass girl, I like! She believes in Satoru, but things are still going well for the killer. He seems always one step forward. Satoru is probably going to be blamed again if Airi dies in that house. Pretty smart for the killer to use Satoru’s mom number to SMS Airi at the end. The serial killer gets away with another crime if Airi dies. Somehow I feel like someone might rescue her in the end, but maybe not this time? Another time? Who knows.
It’s pretty interesting, and you could like predict a lot of route on how this could go. The longer the story goes the more tragic it gets. How is Satoru going to deal with all this? Well it seems pretty obvious to me. After the death of someone, he’ll return back to the past and alter it somehow. I’m sure next week we’ll see the small Satoru trying to find away to prevent Kayo’s death again. Each time he gets sent back to the past, a few clues will lead him to the killer, and in the end he’ll manage to solve it somehow. The best part I think will be the ride. The hardship and everything that Satoru has to overcome will be what makes this series so good in the end. Well at least that’s what I’m hoping for at the moment. I just hope it isn’t going to confusing in a few episodes to come. Looking forward for more, have a nice day guys.
