Berto is attacked by the Abyss. However, the rest of the friends play a taped cassette to wake up Mount Solange. She awakens and the fog disappears. However, the fog takes Berto with it.

Following this, Carlo and his friends set out to find Berto, even though they have no recollection of him.

The Episode Review

The episode is exciting, albeit chaotic. A lot is going on, and it should have been split into two or three episodes to make things more clear. Having said that, the episode clearly states the show’s argument. It goes on to demonstrate how extremes, whether communism or capitalism, can eventually lead to chaos and destruction. Even though you understand the show’s point of view, you can’t help but think the content could have been more clear.

We’re left wondering if Carlo ever runs into Berto again. However, the characters in the show appear to be under the influence, making it difficult to trace the complexities of reality.
