Predictions on episode 9 of Free! Eternal Summer
Ever now and then I like to write my own Predictions for some episodes to see if I come close to what actually happens ^^;
Since the episode will be coming out tomorrow i wanted to write out my predictions for what I think will happen judging by the screen-caps we got not to long ago.
So From what we saw last episode and what we have just found out is that Sousuke has a shoulder injury. Kisumi seems to be addressing it as a serious injury it seems to be considering when Kisumi found out Sousuke was swimming again he figure his injury has healed. Of course we all know that’s no the case. Sousuke really shouldn’t be swimming with that type of injury, At least i think he shouldn’t,but he can’t help but wanting to swim because of Rin. Rin is like Sousuke drive to swim. It’s like how Makoto’s drive to swim is to swim with Haru.
What I think is going to happen next episode is that Sousuke went to go look for Haru.
I think he is going to ask Haru to swim against him. He feels if he can beat Haru then he can feel better and feel worthy enough to swim with Rin. Of course Haru being as he is says no to this and does his casual I only swim free style and refusing to swim against Sousuke. Of course this pisses off Sousuke after hearing that from Haru so he probably would throw him against the lockers that we see that surround them in the screeen-cap.
I also think that Haru will end up saying something about Sousuke injury. Because that can be his other reason to refuse Sousuke offer. Sousuke gets even more piss at Haru and starts to threaten him about Rin and such as he did in episode two. I know it’s probably unlikely but I think Sousuke is some what jealous of Haru. Although he won’t acknowledge him and out right refuses to. I do believe Sousuke is jealous of Haru, in some way. Haru and Rin relationship I could say is stronger than Sousuke and Rin’s. That’s how Sousuke probably sees it. After all Rin did leave to go swim with Haru and the rest of the team. He left Sousuke and that probably made him very lonely. He starts to realize how much swimming with Rin meant to him. He wants another chance to swim with Rin so he trains hard at swimming
It’s Kind of like the way Nitori was training really hard because he wanted to swim with Rin. Sousuke probably saw himself through what Nitori was doing. Because he to wanted to swim with Rin again and kept training really hard to have that chance. But Sousuke pushes him self much too hard and this is probably how he got his injury.Even his choice of words he says to Nitori about pushing it and going over your limits can change how you swim before. He probably said this to himself once before.
Also.after seeing Rin in the relay that he watch that Rin had swim with Haru, Makoto and Nagisa. He sees how much Rin has improve so he wanted to swim even more. We can tell Sosuke injury did not happen when he was a kid. It happen maybe a little bit under a year. The doctor probably told him he can’t swim anymore or it will probably damaging it even more. But of course Sousuke doesn’t listen because he needs to swim with Rin again, for what seems to be his last time.
Now this goes back to how I was saying Sousuke is Jealous of Haru. Haru has far more of a chance of becoming a pro swimmer than Sousuke could ever have. Sousuke dreams of becoming a pro swimmer and swim along Rin side. Even Rin says him self that maybe in the future they can swim together. and Sousuke expression.. That’s not likely to happen..
Sousuke probably brings it up that Haru has this chance to be a pro swimmer and he just wastes his time swimming with his friends not taking swimming seriously.I believe this is what triggers Haru’s anger.
Sousuke yelling at him because he can’t seem to let go that someone has a chance at his dream more than he does. and He out right refuses to be a pro swimmer. “What do you swim for then! Don’t give me that crap about swimming with your friends!! You never take anything seriously!” Something along the lines I think Sousuke may say to Haru.
I think Sousuke is the one who triggers the question “why do I swim,? What do I swim for?” For Haru.
Just a guess but it can make some sense.
Finally the screen-cap with Rin looking really upset and pissed with someone. I have a few theories for why Rin is upset.
I think he may have walked in when Sousuke and Haru were talking. and he over heard everything and could happen to say something like ” What the hell are you saying…Sousuke..!”
other reason could be that he may have over heard about Sousuke injury from Makoto. I find that to be likely because Makoto shows more concern for people. So it make sense for Makoto to tell Rin or to not even realize Rin doesn’t know anything about it to begin with.
None of us really know what’s going to happen tomorrow until the episode actually airs but I wanted to make my own predictions before it actually does come out. You can agree or disagree with me
but this is nothing more than my personal opinion.
Thank you for reading!
