Valvrave the Liberator always seem to pack the most surprises this season. I never excepted this plot twist at the end of this episode. I felt bad for Shoko who lost her father. At the same time, I was shocked at Haruto asking Saki's hand in marriage. I believed he did it out of guilt since he raped Saki last episode. Still, Saki rubs me the wrong way. She expresses jealously of Haruto and Shoko and hid Shoko's call from Haruto. This series will not have a happy ending. I feared that Shoko might end up dead since Saki was shown alive in a future scene in one of the episodes. Besides those elements, I enjoyed that we get to see Akira's past. Though, it felt out of place given the plot in this episode.
