There's a few possibilities here, one is that Roswaal momentarily lost his cool seeing one of his Servants dead in front of him; another is he was pretending to get upset enough to force the issue in order to motivate Subaru to reset the loop. Or something else.

Roswaal doesn't seem like someone who looses his cool over a dead servant.

I took it to mean that Roswaal and Beatrice's relation to one another is tenuous at best and not really based around any kind of mutual friendship. Beatrice was protecting a guest she had known for less than a week and who they suspected of killing Rem, and she appeared ready to use violence to keep him safe.

Also from the way Roswaal is presented throughout the series, both in dialog and just body language/actions I had assumed he was extremely powerful, on the same footing as Beatrice and Puck. He certainly behaves and is treated as if that is the case.

wouldn't mom just be greed in that case? also i just realized those are butterflies in her eyes because that's greed's visual motif lol

Neat, I had noticed the butterfly eyes but didn't make the connection with the beginning of the OP and Echidna's hair ornament until I read your post.

I'm looking forward to our motley crew of Ram, Otto and Subaru taking on the world.

Doesn't Echidna explicitly tell Subaru "here's a magical spell so you can take the trial" during their first meeting?

Ya, she gives him explicit permission to take the tests during their first meeting as a parting gift.

I'm under the impression that being able to cast some level of magic is pretty common in this setting and Subaru's level is likely the level many random people have (that is only barely useful and strains him even at that barely useful level).

The only thing people around him seemed surprised by was that he can use shadow magic, which they state is rare. But his actually ability amounts to being an ambulatory smoke bomb.

I assumed that was because she was superhero landing from a zillion feet up in the sky. Presumably that was not her primary mode of transportation when she was alive?

I'll admit that if I could do this it would be my primary means of getting to and from work.

I mean, in many myths the creator deities seem content with what they made initially. There isn't any reason to believe Daphne would keep making more.

O, well if she's stopped at three horrifying monsters then it's fine. Four would have been unconscionable.

V I'm just being glib relax.

I honestly have no idea what he is going to do to get past any of this. Itís not like heís solving problems and encountering new ones. He just keeps finding new and exciting ways in which he is screwed.

It would be super depressing but Roswald kinda told him didn't he, choose one thing that's important and protect it. Subaru might be functionally immortal but he can only be in one place at any time and his power only cares about his life and outcome. So pick, mansion or the sanctuary and live with the decision. It would also fit in thematically with the start of the season, first he got trapped on a timeline he didn't want, now he needs to chose one

I thought it was said she killed them all. But it's possible I am wrong

It was explicitly stated that envy killed the others during Subaru's first tea party.
