I think my favorite part about this episode was the contrast. Specifically the contrast between Waver/Rider chilling out at home and the action sequence between Saber, Archer and Caster. But we can’t forget the battle going on between Emiya and Kayneth.
Kayneth pulls superpowers out of nowhere this episode which explain why he didn’t die in the huge explosion at the end of last episode. I recall him being some kind of mage/teacher of magic or something simiar at the start of the series so I guess it makes sense. In retaliation Emiya also shows us his ability to change the speed at which his body moves which he uses to avoid Kayneth. Emiya has the perfect opotuinity to kill Kayneth at the end of the episode but instead shouts “Hey I’m over hear doing this cool jump though the air behind you and when I land I will shoot you. You should use that magic shield thing to stop me.” And then Kayneth does. That scene makes me cry at the bad writting.
Although to be fair the scene with Waver and Rider was well written as was the scene with Saber. Of coarse it is bit cliche to have Lancer come and save Saber but I can’t help but feel that we are in for a treat next episode as the title of it was “Magus Killer” Maybe a certain Magican will get killed.
Also, nice shirt Rider. You are my new hero. Give it a few episodes and Rider will have some pants. Then he will go out to a bar and get all the ladies.
