Parasyte episode 05
My god… This episode was completely insane. The author(s) behind Parasyte really thinks of messed up stuff. Calling this episode dark would be an understatement. This shocking episode is definitely one to be remembered.
The episode starts out quite ‘normally’. We have a man driving a car and a women next to him whose body has been taken over by a parasite. The man does not know this and ends up crashing the car because he is focussed on her strange behaviour. The woman, whose body now belongs to a parasite, is fatally wounded and the parasite within her needs a new host or it will die.
This episode proved once and for all that relocation is definitely possible. The parasite transferred from that woman’s body to that man, whom was in a much better shape after the crash. Yes, they were not compatible. It seems the parasite has become accustomed to a female body and the male body simply rejected it. It needed a woman’s body that won’t reject it.
Did I see this coming? Did I know that Shinichi’s mother would get killed by that parasite so that it may take over her body? Of course not. I could never think of something that messed up. I was going the other way. She and her husband were out of town; safe from those parasites. I guess I was completely wrong about that one. Shinichi’s mother is gone and his dad might not have survived either.
What will happen now? Easy. Shinichi is not going to kill his mother. Well, his mother is already dead, but he won’t attack her body either way. It’s all up to Migi now. Either she will get away because Migi couldn’t finish her off or because Shinichi wouldn’t allow it. It’s my guess that that parasite will escape because of Shinichi’s weakness and that his father turns out to be alive in the end. Oh, and Shinichi will survive, of course.
