We aren’t fighting a dragon this week. It’s a drake (according to the subs). They then explained that it was going to become a full dragon but while it was a drake it could be purified. This doesn’t make a great deal of sense as a drake is already a species of dragon in it’s own right (sorry, my inner geek is slipping there). Despite questioning their use of terminology, this was an okay episode. The problem is, we just had a dragon fight so this episode didn’t feel all that much different. We just kind of raced from one issue to the next. Good news is Sorey actually beat something and Mikleo is back. Also, I do enjoy Edna’s additions to the dialogue. I kind of got the feeling from the ongoing overly dramatic music that this whole sequence was meant to be more spectacular than I seemed to feel it was though.
