"The Watchword is "Au Revoir""

(synopsis courtesy of Wikipedia)

A lot of transition and foreshadowing in this ep. It seems Robespierre is making his powerplay, just as St. Just said.

Oh I knew Robespierre was evil. Oscar is getting ready to die and that is very sad.

Marie is an idiot.

It's kinda sad thinking that Oscar is sick :((
Until I've read the comments from some episodes, I didn't think about Oscar's death at all. She seemed all right to me, but now, whenever I think about it, it makes me sad :(

Everyone thinks the same as me ^^. It seems todays "die-flashy-and-come-back-alive" is yesterdays "die-of-a-sickness-because-it's-more-realistic-and-tragic".

It's a shame, really.

Oh! They've said the r-word! It's happening!
Another sign of Oscar's illness last episode occurred to me watching this. If she wasn't sick, she would've chased Saint-Just instead of simply throwing her sword. I was wondering how they would deal with Oscar and the revolution since the earlier episodes, and I guess it's pretty clear now.
Louis has been getting an acceptable amount of screentime. It'd just be cool he didn't spend it dropping the ball at every available chance.

Oh Marie....you are a spoiled brat and an idiot to the very end. I have no sympathy for her or the king. I feel bad for Oscar but she made the right call.

It has been around 20 years since Oscar and Marie first met? Holy crap, the passing time still hasn't sunk in for me yet. That means they're well into their 30s by now. Rose of Versailles has been moving at a breakneck speed, a pace full of necks getting broken as well. With things accelerating within the past few episodes, there's no breathing room at all - a far cry from how this show first started off. It's almost frightening how much things have changed.

Marie Antoinette is just so... ugh, Why did she have to dismiss Jacques Necker. I know he's been a horrible Queen, but knowing what's coming up next I can't help but feel bad for her.

It's also said that her an Oscar had to end our 20-year long friendship, just because she was being stubborn.

That was an amazing episode - like all the kinda-historical episodes have been.

The Oscar-Antoinette farewell scene was the first that made me tear up in this series too. That scene carried the weight of their entire relationship. From Oscar's PoV: to be forced to betray a beloved friend and liege like that, because you know she is in the wrong, but yet getting racked by guilt for turning a blind eye to her faults before and leaving her to the hounds now that she is irredeemable. From Antoinette's PoV: her last bastion and pillar of loyalty just betrayed her, leaving behind the irrefutable truth that her kingdom is crumbling all around her. This is it, this is the end. This isn't au revoir, this is adieu.

That last scene was really depressing and intense. I really liked it although it saddens me to see that they won't meet again and that their friendship is over. I'm nostalgic looking back at the first few eps. As for Marie, she hasn't been a good Queen at all, she hasn't cared for the commoners but I still can't seem to dislike her in this adaptation, maybe because her character has been fleshed out really well. As for Robespierre, the foreshadowing was well-done.
Marie Antoinette is a JoJo

I think Marie Antoinette seeming like she's become unbearable is more because of how little focus there was at her for some time rather than anything else. They should've probably smoothed that out a bit more, though.

Oscar having a terminal illness sounds unnecessary to me.

I found the scene with Oscar and Marie Antoinette pretty nice, both because I quite care about their relationship and also because of how nicely it was done in terms of presentation.

I hate how they portrayed Saint-Just why the hell in the anime he's talking bad about Robespierre while in real history he was the biggest defender of Robespierre.
