I felt the whole Reuntal betrayal was a bit too forced and this is the only part of the whole series that I havent been able to connect to.

It's a pride thing, to a ridiculously manly degree. The idea that the only reason Ruenthal didn't go for the throne himself during most of the saga, because he respects Reinhard so much, is good manly stuff. I think his character was handled very well, I mean we had almost a hundred episodes worth of characterisation, building up his ambitious nature and motivation.

Well I guess so. I just found it so frustrating to see how Reuenal reacted and so many lives were lost for nothing. Saying that he overreacted would be a massive understatement, in fact. And the soldiers were really stupid too; to follow him just because they thought they were fighting to remove Lang and oberstein. But this one episode at the end of the whole affair cleared most of the things for me. The guy who was sent by Reuental to investigate the assassination attempt didn't tell him it was the terraists. I thought Reuental already knew. But now that I think about it it makes sense because if he couldn't find out who did it, then he cant justify himself, and he would be bound to lose his face. So the whole pride thing makes a bit more sense now. They should have told this in the beginning, cuz then I wouldn't be holding my head throughout as if I had a nasty headache. Its a good thing Mecklinger found the truth.

Damn that Reuenthal.... for dying before Wolfgang arrived, and ultimately losing to such spineless bastards like Truniht and Lang. In any case, he lived his life out as a man to the end. Also, he finally got to meet his son who was fortunate to be born without his heterochromatic eyes.

He made a sound call in having Wolfgang and Eva take care of him. Also there was great irony in this situation, that Reuenthal wanted to live without having an heir and ended up with a son, and that Wolfgang and Eva wanted to have kids, but could not. By giving custody of his son to him, Wolfgang will finally have the child he wanted as well as someone to always remind him of his best friend.

Yes. Same here. I expected they would meet, but unfortunately...

I was surprised by the end of the previous episode that they would dedicate an entire episode for Reuental's last day. It was magnificently conducted, making me feel once more the sensation of helplessness, as it happened with Wenli. Still, so many things have happened... I guess I would have so much to comment, but I simply can't bring myself to write anything right now.

One more character to my top-favorites list.

And I haven't thought about Emil being a Terraist spy before... but that's a possibility I can't ignore anymore.

Reuntal's death was second saddest after Yang's...

Although it was shown he has been able take time to enjoy some of the finer things in life like opera and art, for the most part he's been hard at work. Even while sick he was still receiving reports and making decisions while in bed.
I've had a horrible thought. As I watched that one "doctor" kid serve Reinhard tea, I thought that maybe that kid is a Terraist. After all, the Grand Bishop mentioned getting someone close to Reinhard... and the fevers started pretty soon after that kids appearance, iirc. Damn.


Wow, I had exactly the same thought. I hope that's not the case though :/

Reuentals death was unavoidable at this point, but it was still emotional. And I LOVE him for taking Truniht with him. He sure didn't expect that.
I hope we get more Alliance in the next episodes though :)

Let's be honest, I shed tears, especially when seing Mittermeyer crying.
Reuenthal's acts were so remarckable,courteous, right until his death. At least, this b******d of Trunhit died.
Elfried visit with their child was meaningful : she at last seemed to care about him, and granted his last whish.
His decision to give his child to his bestfriend shows again how he esteems and cherishes Mittermeyer.
Lohengramm finally understands that he whished to fight him.

This episode was good but too sad.

Can someone tell me why Lang has such a lovely wife? What the hell is wrong with the universe of this Anime?

Kesler's "discovery" isn't new at all, Oberstein was already a step ahead of him. I noticed Oberstein is like Lunge from Monster, now both on my favorite character lists
Even when I was in crowd, I was always alone

finally Truniht is dead. It took them a while to kill him.

Ruenthal is dead which is a good thing. No offense people who have him as favorite, he and Reinhard are the character I hate the most in the series...

it's weird, Yang's death was so sad and yet i only shed tears when Reuenthal died. he was such a complex character that i couldn't decide if i like him or dislike him.

i finally realized how awesome Reuenthal's character is at his death and that i truly liked him. ;;_;;

I still refer Reinhard as the blond brat after 98 episodes. Reuenthal's death was sad but still way below Yang's and Admiral Bucock's, but to each his own.

Truniht's death was extremely satisfying. Almost like killing Saemon Haevarian in BG2.

FINALLY TRUNHILT DIES. GODDAMN.
Still.. I felt sorry for him. He looked so pathetic as he was bleeding out.

Reuenthal had SO much self hatred. He died rather unfullfilled, and that was a sad thing for me. I've only recently started to understand his character. He won't be favorite characters material, but hes one of the best in the series imo. Sad death at that.
