I just want to take a moment to remember Eugeo, because I’m still not over him. At all. Like even if they use the most flimsy of excuses to bring him back, I’ll take it.
I don’t know why I was so surprised. He let them take her away in chains when she was just a little girl. And the first thing he asked if she had been forgiven for her crimes. Not “How are you?”, not “What happened to your eye?”, nope. Just “Are you still a criminal? You don’t know? Well, gtfo, we don’t want a criminal living here. ”
It sucks to have fought so hard and lost so much to save these people, only to have them be so ungrateful. Then again, we don’t know how much the villagers know about the situation or if they even believe any of it.
It’s hard to fight for people who don’t appreciate the effort. It doesn’t help that Eugeo’s gone and Kirito’s in a coma. I’m wondering where his consciousness is at this point. It seems like he’s still somewhat aware, but I doubt he fully awakened on the other side with Asuna.
Ironically, I don’t think this is an attack by the Dark Territory. Guess we’ll have to wait and see. Also, who else loves the ending theme song?
