The preview lied… Kazuya and Victorique really got separated!
As unexpected, the preview from the last episode was really misleading. I thought they would have some fun together on Christmas considering that it’s Victorique’s birthday! Sadly, things don’t always turn out as Kazuya wanted to… thus leading us to the finale of their story.
Within the relatively short time Kazuya spent together with Victorique, they dressed in their costumes from the fairy tale of a rabbit and the so-called “Charming Monster.” While they were dancing, they looked very cute as a couple. Even though Arvil kind of got the shaft, she manages to give the present that he intended to give before being dragged away. Fortunately, he escaped with the help of Luigi, so everything was fine.
As for the upcoming storm, the “Charming Monster” fairy tale is a rather interesting foresight of what will happen to Sauville as a whole. With the threat of war starting to happen towards the beginning of the New Year, I assumed that Europe was rather stable at the time of the building tension from the dissidents. The dissidents (the rabbits) wants to drive the country into war to satisfy the monster with the blood from the sinners. Amidst this situation, I have a gut feeling that Albert will take advantage of this and perform a coup through the expertise of the Occult to become king and cause havoc.
The most notable and dramatic scene from the episode is when Victorique cries after Kazuya got taken away. While she was a bit harsh towards him at first, she started to warm up to him and gradually developed romantic feelings as time went on. I have a feeling that Grevil is finally realizing that Grey Wolves can have romantic feelings and that his fathers orders is just hurting his sister. If he thought about his sister’s well being, he could have stood up against his father and put an end to this madness. Knowing his father, he probably will continue since his plans are far more important.
As for Kazuya, he got thrown into a very tight spot as Victorique surrendered herself to save him. Like it or not, Brian is the only hope he has left to save her. Whatever the outcome is, I hope that it will end happily for Victorique and Kazuya.
