Season 1 ends with a lot of talking but it was the good kind as it involved Waver and Rider. Rider, Saber and Lancer set up a fight with Caster but don’t start, plus nobody died either so it was kind of average.
Well Rider did buy a games console this episode so it’s not all bad and we got to see Saber in her battle dress too so I can’t complain.
Waver seems to be warming up to Rider a lot reccently so it’s going to be hard on him if or when Rider leaves. Waver goes to the library to uncover some information about Rider and ends up learning more about him in conversation then from a book. They then walk home together and for a moment Waver seem more mature then Rider but then Rider spouts some more details about his past. Waver’s respect for Rider is even greater now so it’s going to be painful to watch their inevitable separation in the second half of the series.
Caster and Ryūnosuke also bond a lot this episode which is kind of scary because nothing good can come from a pair of child murdering freaks who consider piles of corpse as a work of art. It sounds like something out of a horror movie. I say good job to Waver and Rider for discovering and destroying Caster’s secret base.
If the preview is to be believed then we can also expect to see Berserker and Archer fighting at some stage too in three months from now. I guess for now we have to put Fate Zero in the back of are minds otherwise we are going to go crazy waiting for it to start again.
