and how she's alive in what we last saw

“He was going to break my legs,” she said, her chin held high, the barest quaver in her voice. “Would you have come for me then, Kaz? When I couldn’t scale a wall or walk a tightrope? When I wasn’t the Wraith anymore?”
Dirtyhands would not. The boy who could get them through this, get their money, keep them alive, would do her the courtesy of putting her out of her misery, then cut his losses and move on.
“I would come for you,”, he said, and when he saw the wary look she shot him, he said it again. “I would come for you. And if I couldn’t walk, I’d crawl to you, and no matter how broken we were, we’d fight our way out together - knives drawn, pistols blazing. Because that’s what we do. We never stop fighting.”
At last she nodded, the smallest dip of her chin.

So, this is beautiful, but also an actual SPOILER! Beware.


Love works in mysterious ways

I see people angry at Subaru
Angry at Emilia

Coming from a Rem lover, sure Emilia isn’t as forgiving as Rem, but I see her intentions.

With Subaru, she is his hero. She saved him, she approached him, she took care of him before anyone did. She started his time in this world, he wants to please her more than anyone. With how much he’s sacrificed to keep her alive, how can you fault him for staying in love?

I think Re:Zero is a tragedy in a lot of ways; this anime is complex in that it’s NOT a sugar plum and rain drop shounen. This is something that people aren’t used to seeing. We’re raised on people magically falling in love.

Sure Subaru loves Rem, he cares for her, we saw that in the last episode. But in the same way that Rem was saved by Subaru, Subaru was saved by Emilia. Rem admires his strength, she knows he loves Emilia, but what I admire?

The fact that they can laugh it off with eachother. Being out of sights with each other’s love interest.

He may not LOVE her the same way she loves him, if ever, but think about it…

If he had stopped loving Emila then and there and all of a sudden started loving Rem, would that have not completely erased what he’s been sacrificing his life for the past 18 episodes? That’s not character progression.

This episode is easily one of the best episode of recent anime showcasing the true effects of love and how a man, who has lost everything and has his back against the wall, finds out a way to push forward. It just so happens to be with a girl who loves him (and he can’t return it)

Krystal saw Delphine get shot. I’m presuming that Krystal wasn’t seen at the parking lot by anyone. Now Krystal isn’t the sharpest pencil in the box bless her but it would just be typical if in that instant she acted on instinct and got Delphine help, she was only shot in the stomach meaning it would buy her extra time, what if Krystal in a round about way saved Delphine’s life? Now I know a lot of people are saying oh this is definitely proof that she is dead but why is it? If anything it should give us more hope that she is alive than before the last episode. At least we now know that someone else saw the incident and would of been available to possibly help her.

I just find it strange how Delphine was barely mentioned up to this point. We saw her get shot yes but we never actually saw her die. Don’t you think the death of a major player like Delphine would be headline news? Unless Krystal saw whoever shot her bundle her ‘body’ (although at that point she would of still been alive) into a vehicle and now she either is really dead and disposed of or she’s really just in hiding. Or the other scenario is they just left her there to die, Krystal saw and sought help in which case she is probably now in protection.

I’m sorry but I’m really not buying that she’s dead. It’s not just a case of me not wanting to accept it and clinging on to false hope. I just really have a feeling that she’s alive and I have done ever since the beginning of season 4. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if she is now in protection, working behind the scenes and she will either make a reappearance in the finale or an episode or so before in order to help with eliminating Evie and working towards an alternative to saving the clones from extinction.

Right now what do they have? Nothing. All data is erased, all that hard work now counts for nothing and the original is now dead. So what have they got left? Where could they possibly go now? Maybe, just maybe they need the help of someone who is not in danger from Evie, who knows what is happening but can work without the threat of their plan being messed up. Maybe, just maybe that person is Delphine Cormier.
