This intro is going to be pretty brief, I just finished an 11 hour night shift at work and then immediately went to see the new Star Wars movie. So I’m flagging a little bit and need to get some sleep as soon as possible before I have to go back to work tonight.
This was just some prime Jojo this episode; one part action sequence in which people describe their abilities slightly quicker than I could follow, and a second part of people standing in stunned silence, unable to make a choice before eventually executing an overblown gesture of solidarity. It’s good stuff.
With the events of episode 21, It appears we really are moving from the A side of the story to the B side, in which the entire dynamic between our cast changes, as well as the dynamic between them and the people who will inevitably come after them. Although, let’s be real, they’re still going to be fending off massive shit heels with not a moral quandary to be seen.
We arrive at the half way point for the series and things start to take a turn, a turn that gives me final battle with DIO vibes from part III. Bucciarati arrives to deliver Trish to the boss, finally making strides to enact his and Giornno’s plan to screw over the head of the Mafia.
It had been so long that I kind of forgot that Giorno and Bucciarati were in bed together (so to speak) in their plan to upend the criminal underworld in Italy. And a good portion of this episode gets into Bucciarati backstory, which surprisingly we had not encountered before this point.
