the “something” we see at the end of the episode 17 is not Ignis or Specter or Revolver but, rather, the chess pieces themselves?
I mean, since it suggests that whatever Yusaku meets isn’t probably human, if it’s a magical fucking chess piece that’s giant as hell, that pretty much can be considered as a “something” that would definitely make sense to be blocking Yusaku’s path
A little something that i wrote a while ago and thought it was cool enough to share.
Barry Allen Pawn; unafraid to sacrifice himself or his speed if it’s to save someone, much like a pawn would do for the pieces in the back row. When he runs into a figurative wall, though he tries to figure out a way, he has a tendency to rely heavily on others to help him along – working by himself proves to be difficult though. He is the first one who runs into danger and is always backed up by his friends, unless – of course – he decides to go rogue and head right for the end (of the board).
Caitlin Snow Rook; as a rook can only move in a straight path, Caitlin tends to relates things to what she previously knows to be true. She is methodical, straight to the point, and is quite good at assisting the other pieces with plans and/or giving them the support they need – like a rook backing up a pawn as it advancing towards to end.
Cisco Ramon Bishop; can sneak in between two pieces if a diagonal line allows him. Cisco has a knack for thinking through situations in a different light or making things work if he just approached the problem from a different angle; different from most everyone else. However, while amazing in his range or in his reach, well… bishops can only stick to their one colour.
Eobard Thawne/Harrison Wells Queen; most unpredictable piece on the board as it can move anywhere. Wells has always had unclear motives throughout the series and everybody – both ally and opponent alike – watches him (or the Queen) carefully. Yet, there is a limit to his movements: Such as the queen always falls back to protect the king, Harry always changes tactics/plans to protect or save his daughter and, though admitted reluctantly, the other members of the team as well.
Joe West Knight; possesses forward momentum and skill; Joe is good in many areas but will always be there as someone sturdy to lean on. He can be surprisingly good in planning, though executing them is more his strength.
Iris West King; is mainly concerned with what impacts their opinions or their trusted directly. Iris always reacts to threats or events with the thought of how it may impact her or her friends/family; for instance, when Barry was intent on heading off to Earth-2 or when he decided to get his speed back or even when she signed up to go into police work and Joe didn’t let her – every time, Iris was concerned with how it might affect her, or if she was the one that influenced his choice. To sum, Iris always has a reaction to what goes on right there, in front of her, in her life.
The little boy had a new favorite game. The game of kings it was called. He liked to think about strategies. It was in his seventh year on earth that he became obsessed with it. His mother bought him a chess board and pieces made of glass. He loved that board so much and always wanted to play. But the only one he could play with, was his little sister. His brother wasn´t interested, his parents busy and his grandmother sometimes hit him and his sister. He didn´t want to play with her. So he teached his sister. But she was just five years old so he usually won, except when he secretly let her win. He knew, he couldn´t become better like this, right? So he asked for his mothers advice. The mothers job was nursing the elderly and it just so happened that there was a woman who also liked to play. The mother set up a meeting in a weeks time and he waited patiently. In the morning, the day they should meet. the woman never woke up from her sleep. The boy was sad. He was looking forward to meeting her. He also asked himself, what right he had to mourn her death? He didn´t knew her name orhow she looked, how should he feel sad for a strangers death? Slowly the night arrived. The boy set up his board and the pieces on the floor of his room, before he climbed up his loft bed. Why he did so he didn´t know. He just did it without reason. He went slowly to sleep and began to dream. He dreamed that he sat on the floor. An elderly woman to his opposite. Between them laid the chessboard. The woman smiled warmly and with gestures tshowed him to start. The pieces on his side were white and without questioning he started his move. the game started and went on for hours but victorious came out, the elderly woman. The boy lost but was still happy. For he finally played an enjoyable match. When he woke up he could clearly remember the womans features and aura. While starting to question his mind, he climbed down to the floor and almost tripped over the chess board. He looked at the pieces and a shock went through his body. The pieces were placed, showing the stance of his pieces defeat in the same manner as in the dream. The boy slowly started to question and timidly asked his mother a question. He asked for a picture of the lady he was supposed to play with. His mother was curious and asked why. He didn´t want to worry her and promptly made up a lie. She went through some documents and showed him what he asked for. On the picture, looking up from a chess board was a smile he remembered.
