Since Shinsen has released Episode 16, I will simply go for my thoughts which will probably be due to the fact that I have an immense backlog and lacking time to write too much. In my opinion, this is one of the best episodes in Red Garden due to the climax leading to JC’s death, and the fighting scenes are pretty good.
Personally, I found Herve’s words to be really powerful. It is possibly true, since he has no reason to really lie to them and it really confuses the situation. Initially, the girls are given the knowledge that Herve and his clan is the enemy. Now, we are given the truth possibly that both sides are simply fighting for survival and there is no right or wrong. It makes you think that Kate and the other girls are really pawns in this game where both sides are trying to get the cure of the curse back in order to recover.
What will happen to the girls? They would probably die if Herve and his clan got the other book, since they know now where the other clan is hiding. If they finally grab the book back from them, they would forget their memories. It is a dilemma that will eventually reach a losing conclusion for the girls, no matter what the outcome will be. All this will simply spiral into the hopeless future that they fear so much. I just got a feeling that this series will have one of the saddest endings ever and I do wonder how they are going to resolve the situation, considering that there is about 6-7 episodes left. Seriously, putting myself in their shoes, my first question will be this.
What am I even fighting for? Hope, I have none. Life, I have none. Relationships, I have lost all. Humanity, I am losing it.
In my opinion, I find it hard to convince myself if I am in their shoes.
Anna is also showing signs of weakening, which means that Herve will probably be turning totally desperate soon. It will be likely that he will be locked up, especially after showing himself to the enemy. It’s strange though that both Emilio and Herve are a match for 6-7 of the other clan. A full frontal confrontation looks exceptionally likely, especially when JC, the brother of Lula is killed. Revenge is definitely on the hands.
To end it off, I do wonder what the trauma will be on Kate after discovering Herve is making use of her all the time. Since Emilio has shown himself, what will his relationship be with Kate’s sister? Questions are presented ahead more than answers.
