The murder is finally addressed and the fallout from it really keeps things moving forward. Riku is understandably upset, but more than that she’s targeted. Suigin is given a gift and learns that he was actually a relative and also gets a lot of money in the new game (which if I remember they did say the players strength would be related to wealth – so significant clearly).
Still, the real point to note from this episode is we finally see the other executives in the game company and essentially the villain of the piece and it is a scene straight out of a Saturday morning cartoon from twenty years ago, complete with evil chuckle. I wasn’t expecting much of a master plan from the villains, but surely they could at least avoid draping themselves entirely in cliché.
