----------------------------------------
A few things.
1. Grell is a perv.
2. This bad guy is pretty cool with the whole making people into dolls thing.
3. Wait. Ciel actually cares about someone?
4. I love the character designs in this show.

Yeah, Grell has shown his true self :D
This show enjoys me more and more with every new episode! Even different variations of "London brige" are nice :)
Sooo lovely :3

nope shoxk, I am...this felt more Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and not in a good way. I can't put my finger on it, but there was just something I generally disliked about this episode.

Grell is awesome.

"CAN I KISS HIM!? EVEN... DOWN BELOW!?" Oh God I laughed. Loved this episode though. Also, interesting to see a compassionate side of Ciel (with Lizzy).

I really, really hope that this new doll villan guy isn't a substitute for Joker. They look similar, but their personalities and stuff are different. Joker is way more cool.

I start to like Greil. I disliked him for killing Lady Red, but I can't resist his lovely gayness... XD

Too much Elizabeth in this episode though... and way too much Ciel being concerned about her. >_>

So, this episode basically answers the question: if your mother is killed during the Oedipal stage of development, what are the consequences down the line?

Answer: you're forced into an ambiguous master-slave relationship with a demon by a cult of creepy mask-wearing occultists. Then, you come to necessarily depend on the demon -- fond of its maternal aspects, yet aggressive towards its paternal features -- while it reciprocates its intense desire to have you soul with a bevy of undertones: sadomasochistic, pedophilic, homoerotic. Also, you end up hating your birthday.

Well, more accurately, it finally the poses the question to the answer it's been giving all along. However, this series is still working on a much deeper level than I first expected!

Grell was hilarious and I agree the dollmaker henchman was done quite well in both character design and presentation, including the use of the London Bridge song. Quite creepy! I like the exposition about Ciel's backstory, even though it only gave us marginally new information.

(I'm also a guy, shoxk.)

Agreed to a few points.

The doll maker does look similar to Joker but Joker definitely had a personality and was not like a puppet/robot himself (some of his movements were rough and rigged like it was mechanical). This is my first time watching and reading at the same time (I usually never read) so I'm actually able to pick up the differences (in this case, vast) in storyline. So it's almost as if we're getting two versions of the same series (and I don't just mean reading and watching).

Another deal is that the animation do look very slick. I think it's like X or Blood: The Last Vampire where even if it was made many years ago (X), the graphics are still so nicely done that time has no real effect on it.

I'm actually very, very, very annoyed by Elizabeth, will never call her "Lizzy", and am quite frankly rooting for her death. xD Sorry for any fans, but she needs to die. Right now. I was surprised when I first started the series at how dark it was and I absolutely came to love it so much more because of the dark side. With Elizabeth? It kills, and her voice as well as personality and presence brings me to wish each and every time that I see or read of her...that she dies. So, my dear dark series, please, as a favor, kill her off. After all, it would help by bringing more drama to Ciel's life, especially if he did lose her on his birthday. See? Two birds with one stone.

Lots more to say but I'll leave it at that.

Okay, so did anyone else pick up on the fact that the series clearly goofed this episode? Allegedly, a Reaper's (shinigami, whatever) scythe or scythe substitute can cut through anything, right? We were told this. So why in the world did Greil's scissors fail to slice through that one puppet's hands? Huh? Did this bother anyone else?

Ciel promising Grell one day with Sebastian in which he can do whatever he wants to him O_o... that's like Shinigami heaven for him *_*!

i really don't know if this is still a filler or not, but after i finish the anime i really want to read the manga too; hopefully i'll understand more about Ciel's past because right now with the explanations so far i'm worse than clueless. to me everything make less sense with every episode...

the episodes are just better and better. and these are still fillers? wow. I've recently started to get those in a number of shows. is it something like 'good filler episode' season or something? but really, a great episode. can't wait for the next.

yeah, that scene made me wonder. maybe greil got into so much trouble so that they really are just plain scissors after all? but on the other hand it's kind of crazy, even if it's someone who managed to get a chainsaw in the 19th century.

Ohh, Elizabeth's going to be turned into a doll. Ciel you better hurry up or you'll lose your fiancee. Also, why don't they show the eyes of Ciel's father? Is he like going to play a role in the future? Makes me wonder.

Grell became Ciel's partner for a while only because Ciel will let him do whatever he wants to Sebastian later on, lol. Pluto seems to be worthless since he didn't even transform when Ciel needed him. :(

I wonder what happened to Ciel in that birthday party of his when he was younger. Some kind of ritual occured to him. Also, I think the reason why Grell's scissors couldn't cut down those metal dolls was because he's using a ordinary scissors since that guy took his sycthe away, lol.

I'm ashamed to say this but I actually like Grell...I hate him but at the same time he really amuses me.

Also! Finally get to see a bit more of what happened to Ciel. It's horribly sad and upsetting but I want to know!

Good to see some background in Ciel’s past.
Grell was bribed with one day of ‘do-whatever-you-want-to-Sebastian’. Amusing.

They still can’t make me like Elizabeth, I don’t care for her. Pluto is useless too.
I think, then procrastinate.
Therefore, I am.

It seems they took some elements from the circus arc in the manga and put their own twist on things. It's interesting in a few ways, at least.

Agree with everything. Especially the bold part xD

It was nice to see some of Ciel's background. I want to know more... This was probably the best episode so far imo. I just loved it.

Greil is so over the top, I love him... her? Him?

I wonder if there will be a 'Masonic' type theme, what with Ciel being branded in that strange ritual. This is Victorian London, after all.
