A bit of everything happened this episode but first up was the biggest plot changer. Turns out Kayneth’s wife also want to be part of the war and through some miricale she convinces Lancer to join her. If Kayneth hadn’t overdone it in his battle with Kiritsugu then he might not be in a terrible situation right now.Lancer’s past was explained in the form of a dream which was cool to see. I kind of hope we get more of these for the other servants. One for beserker would be nice.
This episode brought back the Waver and Rider pair which i’m still arguing is the best part of this series. Waver performs some basic alchemy which reveals where Castor has been hiding and the pair go on an adventure to hunt down a child killer. It was funny to see Waver blush when he was complimented by Rider. The dynamic between the two is my favorite part of the series. I have discovered that I am a fan of the lighthearted elements of serious shows such as Fate Zero and Guilty Crown. In the lair of Caster Rider executes an Assassin making the Rider and Waver pair the first to discover the existence of more assassins.
The first part of the anime is coming to a close and I expect we will be left on a huge cliffhanger 2 or 3 episodes from now. Just going to say this now I don’t mind a good cliffhanger but I would prefer it if Fate Zero ends the first half with on of the servants losing the war.
