Chapter 223: "Bewildered Lovers" Review (Long)
Oh shit. This chapter though.
Honestly, probably one of my favorite chapters of all time. Just everything was perfect. It had a little bit of everyone.
Let’s start from the beginning: Girl time! I love it! The Elizabeth, Diane, Elaine trio is adorable. I LOVE THEM. I love when they talk about boys and stuff, ugh Elaine is just so cute. “What does she mean by fooling around?” ADORABLE. And Diane is such an amazing friend. She’s so supportive of her friends, as you can see especially with Elizabeth and Gowther.
Moving on, the little moment with Escanor thinking about Merlin and Merlin thinking about Arthur had me like crying a bit. (That’s where the tears began but didn’t end)
But then it all got okay (for a moment) with the cute little King and Helbram scene! Did anyone else notice “Hookin’ it up”? HOOKIN’ IT UP. I think we all know what that means…. (they did the do) and I’m screaming. ;)
Of course all of that fangirl heart fluttering disappears with that heart wrenching moment when Meliodas tries to tell Ban that he knows what he’s going through, because he has seen the woman he loves die over and over again too. And the hell basically breaks loose, Elizabeth starts going batshit, her eyes become all goddessy and shit. We all sob (and shit our pants) as Meliodas tells everyone that Elizabeth is going to die in three days. (Merlin acting sus bc she has a past with Meliodas, also bc Elizabeth basically reveals that Merlin can control her own appearance. “I almost didn’t recognize you looking so young!”) I cried, you cried, everyone cried.
In the end, I was both surprised and delighted with this chapter. As I said before, it’s one of my favorite in the series. And there’s so much hype for next week. (We gonna learn about the cuuuurse!)
