Looking rather UNCLE there, Hei.
Pretty much bridge-filler episode focusing on Suou and July’s unspoken, developing bond… much akin to Hei’s first season bonding with Yin. I kinda LOL’ed at hearing Nabatame Hitomi as the treacherous ‘transporter’ Hei hires to get them out from Hokkaido to Tokyo. Too bad she’s just a one-shot character killed terribly by the end of this episode. Speaking of which…. Suou was pretty nifty at throwing those glass shards.
Major revelation this week is that Suou’s father is still pretty much alive, under Shion’s thumb and probably had a cloned body prepared to masquerade as his corpse for the Russian authorities, prompting Tanya’s return to fray… not that it’s unwelcome since she looks hawt as hell in those uniforms.
I’m just glad the show’s getting back on the serious track for now. Hopefully that’ll be the last we see of dreadlocks boy.
