Satou returns to Misaki City, where he wakes Margery with a kiss, and then the two get it on. At the Palace of the Stars, the battle is going well for the Flame Hazes, causing Decarabia to join the battle personally. Sophie is able to destroy him, but only just before Haborym and the western forces arrive much earlier than expected. Finally, Shana, Wilhelmina, Rebecca, and Khamsin enter the Gate to chase after Yuji, and are guided by one of the ancient Flame Hazes until they reach a palace in the center, where they’re greeted by Sabrac.
This wasn’t quite as good as the last two episodes I didn’t think, but it was still pretty good. I’m surprised so many baddies are getting killed this early, with the Commander of the Bal Masqué’s forces, Decarabia, getting defeated this time. And yet, they keep coming, with Haborym arriving on the ground and Sabrac showing up in the Gate.
Sabrac is usually attached to something much bigger, but I’m not sure what that would be here, unless he’s attached himself to the palace. But I would think attaching himself to something within the Gate would be somewhat dangerous, but we’ll see. I doubt Shana and others will get to Yuji in time to stop him retrieve the true form of the Snake of the Festival, and who knows what will happen then.
