AWESOME episode. Unlovely was so sadistic, breaking Megumi's mind like that! She really destroyed her psychologically!! It was so dark I couldn't even believe it.
On that note, this episode's tone felt really different compared to the previous ones. Does anyone know if someone new directed and/or wrote it? Even the animation looked different: the Precures' ribbon wings, for example, are much longer and in Cure Mirage's case don't look like wings at all but simply tendrils of light; also, while previous episodes have used the "Magical Skirt", making the skirts completely immobile even when the Cures' are upside down just to to hide their underwear, this episode actually made Lovely's skirt move, so we were able to see that she has huge puffy bloomers under her skirt. These are subtle differences, but they are noticeable.
Since I'm talking about things that have changed, I should mention the opening! I was skipping it as I usually do, but I noticed that some things were different, so I watched it from the beginning and they added a few things, Fortune's Form Changes in the mirror and a scene of the HapChaPre activating the Shining Make Dresser! Also, the still shot of the fan drawings after the preview and the Sponsors Message finally has Iona, Yuuko and the two Fairies!
Back to the episode, Blue suddenly and randomly remembers that he had used the Shining Make Dresser with Mirage (who I seriously didn't expect to have been a Precure) against a "great evil" that looks a lot like the gooey substance Phantom uses to trap Precures and to copy Lovely in this episode: it's obviously Deep Mirror who managed to survive and corrupt Mirage somehow.
The interesting thing is that Blue apparently has trouble remembering a few things... Why could that be? My theory is that he can't remember well either because he and Deep Mirror used to be one and they split (with DM being his Dark Half) or because Deep Mirror tampered with his memories.
By the way, this episode actually made me like Lovely a bit! She had some good character development, managing to overcome Phantom's mind games and defeating him.
Next week's episode looks interesting! I really would prefer if Iona was the one to help redeem Phantom because of their history (and also because it's been a long time since she's had the spotlight on her), but it's Yuuko. I wonder what will happen!
