For what it's worth, Tappei said during a livetweet in the middle of the episode airing that none of the lines have been spoken in the novel as of now, and currently the web novel has just started the seventh arc (we're still in the fourth in the anime).

The floor tiles during the bloodied Emilia vision are from the Lugnica throne room (check S1 Ep 13 they're there); I cannot comprehend this hatred of hers being targeted at Subaru, so my guesses are either versus Pandora or Priscilla.

Not asking for specifics, but are those lines all actual flash forwards, or are some of them taken from the assorted AU routes that have been published for this series?

Some of them are definitely references to the AUs, but that doesn't preclude them from being flash forwards as well.

At this point I think the Greed or Kasaneru AU story is the only one that wouldn't significantly spoil upcoming stuff were you to read them, though I'm not certain of that.

Also notably, the only current plot thread we didn’t get an update on this episode was Subaru and Betty

The Greed, Pride, Sloth and Wrath IF stories are all good to go; Envy IF doesn't exist cause it's the canon timeline, Lust IF was written as a bad joke, and the Gluttony IF is DEEP into the 6th Arc.

(I have 5 episodes to catch up to here I am very embarassed)

In order of speakers as confirmed by voice actors in the credits (from their first words, because there's overlapping voices):
2. Subaru (angrily/mockingly): "You're a hero. A hero is all you can be."
Reinhard: "I..."
Subaru: "Thanks for the help!"


This is exactly what Puck told Reinhard in Subaru's second trial where he saw all the alternate post-death universes back in s2e12.
Not sure what the significance of that is.

Echidna is subvertly spoilering Emilia, except you don't get a probation when caught.

I'm pretty sure Pride has spoilers involving Regulus, so not that one.

I took Emilia not recognising Echidna in the coffin to be because it's already been made explicit that people do not remember their interactions with her in the trials once they're back in the real world. It'd be weird to bring that up when Subaru was involved and drop it immediately afterwards.

AlternateNu posted:

After the catharsis of Garfield getting to trounce Elsa, that's the natural place to go for the emotional climax so it makes sense that it's being saved for its own episode next week. Once Subaru split from Otto and Petra to get Betty outta there, I figured it was being saved for later at least.

You have it backwards. Reinhard beat her so thoroughly that she realized she had no chance and dipped before her resurrections ran out. Garfiel slowly whittled her down which combined with Meili's presence left her committed beyond the point of no return.

others have pointed out that they’ve been very very careful not to show echidna’s face in any scene not involving a mental space she controls, including past flashbacks that would have undoubtedly shown her real face. That feels far too specific to just me to be “everyone forgot her face”.

I too was intrigued by the attempt and also curious why it didn't work! :D

I assume its because dust explosions maybe aren't as easy to cause as fiction implies, and Subaru probably got his knowledge from examples from fiction In reality I assume you need an enclosed space and the room isn't small enough?

Not enough flour would be my guess, it's a big room and there's a minimum concentration of combustible dust required for an explosion to happen

We also don't know what dust he was using. It needs to be otherwise combustible material.

The door was open/destroyed and there was a big hole in the wall that the mabeast crashed through, the room wasn't particularly enclosed.

I'm honestly glad Subaru got Betty to leave the library without claiming to be "the one." It means that he didn't have to stoop to acknowledging Echidna's story to her was legitimate and got her to actually :sever:

Also, they avoided showing Echidna's full face again, but we did see her eyes, and they look like the eyes we know from the Windows XP background, so who knows what's going on with this framing choice

Wait wait wait a second. Did any of you catch Echidna's voice when that Ryuzu was thinking to herself?
