Fate/Zero episode 04

Okay, so far so good. The fight for the Holy Grail still rages on as everyone comes to watch the battle between Saber and Lancer. Those two also were the first ones to actually fight in Fate/Stay Night. I wonder if that’s somehow related…

Speaking of spectators, which there were plenty of, Assassin was one of them. The question being; why?! They went through with that big charade to make it seem like Assassin had been defeated, why would Assassin be watching a fight openly like that? People saw him there, so what’s going to happen to Kirei? He fled to the church looking for protection, but the church supposedly only protects masters and mistresses whose servants have been defeated. It’s a very confusing scenario.

The story does get better, which is a big relief. I had my doubts when they seemed to be rushing things. I just want to see the story that led to Shirou’s existence. Who is his mother? The only women in Emiya’s life are Saber, Irisviel and Maiya. My guess is that Maiya’s the mother, because she had been raped in the past by soldiers, got pregnant because of it and lost her child later on. Is Shirou actually a bastard that had been raised later on by Emiya? I wonder…

I’m also happy to see that some things are still practically the same. Take Lancer’s ultimate technique; his spear has the ability to cancel any type of magic. That means that things such as magical armor, weapons and other objects have very little to no effect when Lancer uses that technique.  Which is why Saber’s armor couldn’t protect her, and of course why her swords became visible when it came in contact with Lancer’s spear, even though it’s surrounded by wind magic.

But then, just when things started to get interesting, it’s Rider that joins the fight. There’s seriously something wrong with that guy. He just interrupts that fight, announcing his true identity and points out his superiority. That guy is way to overconfident, which will be his downfall. Rider, or more commonly known as Alexander the Great, will have to rely on his speed. He is the fastest amongst the servants, so that should come in handy when escaping, but it’s his master who’s the weakest link here. Waver has very little to no experience, he gets easily frightened and he too is overconfident, just like his servant. Those will have to face a lot of hardships together if they want to keep up with the rest. I guess we’ll see what happens next week!
