Arthur has become too confident in his recent victories that he didn’t foresee the next battle. This time, a white haired woman is in command of this small, but powerful force and they plan another attack on the Gaels.
Before the planned attack, there is one notable lighthearted moment. Limwris shows Arawn a picture book Ermin made. The book was titled The Adventure of the Black King and it contains pages of terribly drawn pictures. While it’s kind of nice to see her put all the effort into the book, there were so many pages of the prince and the king whacking enemies that it became extremely redundant. No wonder she got tired from saying the same thing over and over again! Nevertheless, it was still adorable imagining her beating up some enemies.
On the other hand, Arthur got a bit too conceited over the past few victories. I know his forces are well trained and resourceful, but he failed to carefully plan out his attack. He didn’t know that Rubrum was more powerful than the average force they fought. He just ran into battle without any aim. Everyone knows that is foolish and can lead to unnecessary sacrifices. Needless to say, Lydia who is a white haired woman is the commander of Rubrum and compared to Octavia, she is vicious. Her red eyes were essentially burning with a passion to bring down the Gaels forever. She is just a woman that you don’t want to mess with.
As they say, failure is always an option and Arthur should learn from his mistakes instead of lamenting about it to no end. Humans aren’t expected to be perfect and I agree with Arawn. Arthur shouldn’t be too concentrated on his failure. Instead, he should be focusing on the next course of action to defend the Gaels from the empire. From the look of the next episode, they will just do that with Rathy’s genius plan to attack them where they don’t expect it. If that isn’t enough, Octavia makes a rather disturbing discovery at the camp. She finds that the Empire was collecting dead corpses in a box. Sadly, it wasn’t without consequence since she got knocked out after finding out. This means that the empire isn’t so righteous after all.
