It’s been a problem throughout this series but episode 8 takes it to new levels: over explanation of the mundane while failing to actually tell us anything useful.
Did we need nearly 3 minutes of this episode devoted to the researchers explaining their views on the romantic relationships evolving (given they haven’t exactly been subtle in their development)? The answer is probably not.
Then, do we need the characters psycho-analysing each other as they wonder around an abandoned building in a typhoon? Definitely not.
And then there’s the big reveal by Nori only everybody saw it coming a mile away which essentially makes this episode pointless. Not unenjoyable, just without purpose.
