Fate/Zero 2 episode 04

Better late than never, right? I did watch Fate/Zero before I went to sleep (I just had to), but I just didn’t have the time to write about it. That’s too bad, because the story just got a whole lot more interesting. This season is definitely the best.

Everyone was still recuperating during this week’s episode. That’s not so surprising; they all went through hell and back in order to defeat Caster and that monster of his. But that’s when Tokiomi sent out an invitation to Irisviel to come and talk to him about the possibility of them cooperating together. Needless to say that Irisviel did indeed come and listened to what he had to say. However, Irisviel had a few requests of her own, one of which was to make Kirei resign from the war. Tokiomi agreed and everything seemed to go pretty smoothly, when Kirei decided to stay in the war, kill Tokiomi and take Archer in as his own servant. Man, I did not see that coming.

This war really is filled with nothing but traitorous psychopaths. Trust no one, kill everyone. It really is too bad. This episode actually made me think about the ending, I mean… Why bother? We all know that Gilgamesh is going to win. They made that very clear in Fate/Stay Night. It sure isn’t Saber that’s going to win, why else would she have appeared at the next war for the Holy Grail? Who knows, they have surprised me this much already, maybe the ending will be different after all.

At this point I can only hope that I get to see Shirou’s mother. I know that Kiritsugu is the father, but who the hell did he knock up? Shirou had red/orange hair, so that leaves out Maiya. Irisviel would be the most obvious choice. She is his wife, is the one he’s fighting for, and she is currently the most likely to survive, seeing as Gilgamesh has a thing for Saber. But Irisviel’s body is weak, the hair doesn’t match, the eyes don’t match… It’s really killing me to find out.

    I dont think that this was entirely unexpected. I already knew that kirei was going to stab him in the back but not literally

  2. I would rather see Kirei dead than Tokiomi. I can’t wait to see what Kiritsugu is going to do with him… 🙂
