Well, we are no closer to figuring out what Misuzu’s fate is going to be, but this episode does offer some interesting moments. I get the feeling Dr Love is going to be a highly entertaining addition. He isn’t afflicted with ongoing stupidity like so many of the cast have been, and he really manages to nail those one-liners.
The final parts of the episode, while significant from a story point of view I guess, aren’t really that fun to watch. Maybe if I were younger, the whole hope and believe in yourself message here might have struck a chord but mostly I was just worried I’d roll my eyes clear out of my skull. Still, there were definitely some good moments in this episode.
Misuzu is being interrogated for releasing a prisoner and they have film of her doing it but it turns out that she probably doesn’t remember doing it because she was some sort of test subject and is being medicated. Not sure how that makes it not her fault (or the fault of those supervising the administration of the medication) but apparently if we rescue some doctor on earth we can clear it all up. Cue a partnership between two girls with contrasting personalities and Chuta. On the plus side the Captain finally got to show off some moves.
This episode was interesting to watch but several moments in it kind of fail any kind of logic test when you reflect on the episode. Besides, they had a classic let’s have the villain just randomly do something truly horrible (like blow up a room-full of people) in his opening scene just to prove he was some kind of threat rather than making him seem threatening. As always with this show, there are parts I’m really interested in and other parts that just make me wonder when they are going to get it together.
