The Episode Review

This episode is clearly attempting to appear mysterious, but the plotline is becoming increasingly unclear and chaotic. The development of the story and plot twists appear to exist solely for dramatic purposes and have no value at this point.

The show’s romances, such as Fara and Alban’s and Lina and Bryan’s, appear far too structural and uninteresting, which ultimately adds no value or thrill to the show.
