The fight continues from exactly where we left it last episode and we finally get to see some competent villains. This has definitely upped the tension levels as we see even the professional heroes getting taken out and there seems to be some real risk to the students. That said, the show doesn’t seem ready to commit yet to actually injuring students for real so maybe they are just holding off to up the stakes later or maybe it is just the kind of show where they aren’t going to go there. That said, there are some great moments for some of the students in the episode but overall, it really is just a series of fighting vignettes and setting up the next episode. No resolution to be found this time round. If you aren’t interested in the fight, there isn’t a lot else going on.
