ERASED episode 05
This certainly was a kick in our protagonist’s nads. He went through all that trouble of going back in time (even though he himself has no idea how he did it) and it only seemed to make things worse if you look at the big picture.
He did not save that poor girl. I imagine that her mother’s boyfriend is the one responsible for her death and that her mother is merely trying to cover it up or something. But yeah, she got murdered a little later anyway. She managed to make it to her birthday but that was all. Our poor protagonist had no other choice but to go back to his ‘own time’.
I will say that I find it kind of weird that his colleague, that interesting girl, is willing to do so much to help him. She even helped him at the cost of her own wellbeing after the murderer set her family’s house on fire with her still in it. It goes to show that our protagonist is getting closer (and making things a little bit worse for the sake of progress). I can’t wait to see what happens.
