Just when I didn’t think this series could get any more exciting, it goes and pulls this episode out of its back pocket. I knew my previous assessment of the episodes alternating between being amazing and just good was never going to last, now as the series approached its final stretch I’ve never been happier to be wrong. Nor could I ever predicted what was going to happen in this episode; as so many little factors start to come together.
After thinking about it some more, episode five last week actually left me kinda wanting. While it did give us a phenomenal fight scene between Sukune and Fushiguro, I still felt like the show was going a touch too fast and leaving me in the dark a little when it came to the state of the world. Episode 6 is the first one that seems to settle down a bit and start to really let this world and its characters sink in a bit.
Before this episode, I didn’t put a whole lot of thought into what Rachel’s deal was. I assumed something had happened in the very brief time her and Bam had been apart and that was keeping her from reconnecting with him. But after watching this episode I’m more inclined to think that maybe Rachel just wasn’t ever the person Bam thought she was.
