SPOILER WARNINGS ARE IN EFFECT
I wanted to review this episode. I wanted to talk about Aine, Slanter, Eretria, Bandon, and the amazing not-in-the-book twist at the end.
But I am absolutely furious that the showrunners opted to include Cephelo threatening to rape Amberle and coming very close to doing so, with no repercussions. It was disgusting and unnecessary and has no place in my entertainment.
Instead, I have made a donation to RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) and ask that you consider doing the same.
Thank you for your understanding. I hope the show doesn’t repeat this egregious mistake again in episodes to come.
