This is some Game of Thrones thread title poo poo.

Additional thoughts about this episode: I wonder how much time has passed. The villagers are presumably all dead. Likely because of the Evil Bunnies. But the land being Winter makes me think Emilia died and so Puck is running rampant. I have a feeling Subaru might have been teleported a couple of days into the future instead of a few hours. I'm surprised there was no flash back to the earlier Ice Death by Puck. The villagers' stuff is all there still without dust or webs covering them, so it makes me think this wasn't like a year into the future. It's surprising to me if its been a few hours only, maybe he was in like a coma for a few days but it seems strange he wouldn't have been eaten before then unless the Elves were protecting him until then.

Subaru's forgiven people for killing him in an aborted timeline (e.g. Rem, Puck), but I think it's going to be a bit harder to get over someone killing his friends right in front of him.

I feel like you could see the gears in Roswaal's head turning when talking to Subaru; like Subaru to his perspective just ALL OF A SUDDEN asks about the Not!Fake grimoire (an interesting detail Subaru missed is the connection between a 'Tome of Wisdom' and a Grimoire of the Cult) and whether Beatrice is a cultist, whatever Roswaal happens to know you gotta think that's making him think about things.

It's a good thing maybe from Subaru's POV that this was a dead end timeline because I feel like that had to have consequences down the road otherwise.

^That does kind of make me wonder what a fan-edit of Re:Zero that only has Subaru's final loops would feel like. Intentionally decoupling the viewer from Subaru's perspective might be interesting.

At some point someone mentions that, to other people, Subaru seems like a guy who is just miraculously always in the right place at the right time.

(this is also why he gets treated with suspicion sometimes)

Watching loopless subaru in action is like watching a hurricane of bad decision making coming right at you only for it to swerve at the last second and hit your worst enemy instead.

I found it somewhere once and started watching it but the audio on that copy was one of the worse I've ever heard. I can't remember exactly how it was bad but imagine if they made it mono, dropped the bitrate to under 64k, and included copious clipping. I could make out the words but any BGM sounded like telephone hold music on a low bandwidth line.

it was like the head in lap scene from season 1 but even more cathartic i imagine for subaru. though it was depicted as less, i think. idk!

I screen capped a bunch of echidna faces cause they were so good. Including...:



So cute..... She's kind of shocked and awkward because she's very used to people fearing her I think. I bet that she only made him forget about her because she was worried he'd hate having met her. I hope she really does turn out to be nice and not have a deeper darker motivation.

So with Echidna it seems like Subaru has someone he can confide in without his heart being crushed by a shadowy hand but I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop and for Echidna to do something horrible.

I think she mentioned it on her first meeting too, possibly episode 1 or 2? But it's not been elaborated on much.

I think Beatrice was the one who mentioned it.



How can Echidna be the best when she doesn't even have the guts to confess like her much superior colleague?

Bet she doesn't even spread her love around to many completely sane and level-headed devotees...

I'm calling something here.

Tome of Wisdom that knows the future? Roswaal has a secret territory that just so happens to include the grave of Echidna? They're a badass supermage? Beatrice lives in a secret library - a font of knowledge? Echidna's all about being greedy for knowledge? Roswaal's family serves Echidna, Beatrice was created by Echidna, and the Sanctuary was intended only to let humans in and keep Satella out but oops it accidentally hit demihumans too. Echidna directly controls the trials. I do not know why they don't like Emilia. Maybe just to force Subaru to learn about the Echidna faction, which she really wants him to join.

Just speculation, but I think it's pretty well supported so far. Really want to learn more about Gospels and Witch Factors though.

The general people hate her because half-elves look like the witches right? I doubt most people have straight up seen a picture of Satella themselves. But uh, if that's accurate, that does explain Echidna using the trials to screw with Emilia.

Pretty sure the trials are generally the same for everyone: "Face the worst part of your past (and presumably present and future)"

I think Emilia's past is just more painful than most.
