Someone sure is channeling Rena here. And no, that’s a crime.

LOL, Mao’s still holding a grudge against Gai hurrr. It’s just kinda cute-funny seeing him pull that off in a flying squirrel’s body.

And finally, the big revelation…. Suou’s actually been dead for 8 years?!

I’m suspecting current Suou is a Doll with Suou’s identity implanted. Makes sense, since father is ME researcher and he’s actually pulled that trick earlier.

Also the whole Izanami/Izanagi shit is kinda confusing. Plus with Amber suddenly making a cameo as the Mitaka Documents and all….

One thing though, glad to see the old Hei back. Impressive how he pwned Hazuki this episode.

    Not quite. While dolls can effectively adopt the role of the memories they’re given, they’re still dolls. The Russians are completely confused by how the corpse they recovered matches the records. Unless Pavlichenko had an identical twin or a clone that were dolls, which is unlikely since there’s a big deal made about governments getting their hands on dolls which implies that there’s no surefire process to create dolls, it’s more likely something Shion did. Maybe he can make clones or something.

    On the first hour of DtB on 1st season, the girl that was the target of Hei’s unit was a doll, with implanted memory / personality (but only for short-term usage, since the memory fades and she returns to doll-like state at the end).. It might be a similar case for Suou, but the one that did the implanting, probably, was Shion

    Whoa…so Suou was dead all this time? How come?
    Hoping that they’ll reveal this next episode.
    I loved this episode, so much stuff in it. It’s hard to understand all that Izanami/Izanagi stuff though, so confusing – because nothing much has been revealed yet.
    I wonder if Shion has some kind of ressurecting / cloning ability, hmmm.

    We’ve been going over a possible explanation for it as well at ASuki, and it all boils down to either Suou’s father not being particularly forward, or something done by Shion (who is alluded to be able to create items — note the reverse-parted PTRD which Genma noticed immediately) after he gained his Contractor abilities. Or something of a mix between the two theories.

    Ah finally good to see the old Hei back, and yeah i can’t wait for the next episode to explain Souu’s death and maybe that way we’ll get a better idea of what Shion does.

    Btw Izanagi… isnt that the old lady from the astronomy department from the first DTB

    Personally, I would’ve liked to agree that it was Shion’s powers that resurrected Suou (8 years ago) but I can’t. In episode 1, it is shown that Shion became a contractor 2 years ago while it “seemed” to be that Suou was still alive. Due to this, I’m assuming it had to do with their father’s research and since Shion knew of this research, he may have been able to resurrect his father. Then again, he could’ve gained the power to normally resurrect his father when he became a contractor. Also, a few minutes into episode 1, after showing the incident between the twins, Shion is looking at a female-like aura and says, “Suou”. I can’t be positive that the aura was actually Suou. This is all just an assumption. After all, last time I checked, we were never told of Suou’s status when Shion became a contractor.

    Okay I wasn’t surprised regarding Suou been dead for 8 years since this plot device already used in Jigoko Shoujo Mitsuganae.

    But here’s my thought regarding the sudden revelation by her mother.

    Here’s a thought, her mother don’t know that the one she saw back then was just a clone prepared by Shion. (Remember the proffessor that was killed by BK-201 during the 1st episode was only a clone with 1 day worth of memory). The reason Shion did that so their mother won’t worry anymore and instead travel/hide to avoid being killed in relevance with Shion and others since Suou possess the great power and that’s to exterminate Contractors. If Yin can manipulate Contractor’s powers. What would happen if Suou and Yin meet.

    My 90% confirmed theory
    Amber is the Madam with glasses… since she is no longer existing (since the last time rewind/stopper usage) seems the twins along with her helped out on maintaining her.
    That explains her sudden disappearance when talked with Misaki and Suou.

    Finally Hei is back. So what’s with the kidnapping another almost loli looking megame girl. Has he changed his fetish? Stay tuned for the next episode. So much for the antics of Gai and the pink girl.

    Crossdress July….

    Some really good points there arigatou, some of the sound good. Not so sure about the Amber being the woman with the glasses though.

    Anyone else spotted the return of the floating car at 8:57 and 9:00?

    I remember when people where predicting that Suou would die. Turns out, she already has.
