To Your Eternity Season 2 Episode 13

To Your Eternity Season 2 Episode 13

Eko’s Adventure

The first half of To Your Eternity Season 2 Episode 13 was all about Eko. And that means the first half of the episode was good. Eko’s the best character in the current arc. Bon just hasn’t been as good since he stopped being a prince.

My biggest complaint about this episode is that the entire thing didn’t follow Eko. Even though she doesn’t speak, it’s fun to watch how she interacts with the world around her. Actually, the fact that she doesn’t speak is why it’s fun to watch her.

At times, it seems like her head is empty because of her inability to effectively communicate. For example, after Fushi tells her that her cooking is terrible, she stands there and smiles. Was it because she didn’t understand that he thought her cooking was bad? No, as we later find out. She was happy that he tried it at all.

We also got to see Eko experience new things in this episode. When she sees a knight’s helmet, she tries it on. She doesn’t know what it is, but she knows soldiers wear them. So, since she can’t speak, she mimics what she sees others doing to figure it out.

Then, she starts helping the civilians clear rubble. Nobody asks her to do this. But, she wants to be helpful and she sees this is something other people are doing. Through this, she also connects with the townspeople, in particular, an older man.

The connection she made with the man is important because it means she can go to him for help later. After she discovers what’s contaminating the city’s waterway, she goes to this man for help. She doesn’t want to bother Fushi because she recognizes how busy and tired he is.

Messar the Gamer

I was under the impression that Messar only had to beat Princess Alme in a game once. But, it turns out that he needs to keep beating her for her continued cooperation. Every time he beats her, she approves another demolition and rebuilding project.

We know this is how their deal works because Bon tells us as much. He says that every time Messar beats Alme, they can rebuild another section of the city’s wall. And I should point out that this deal only applies to structures owned by the nation itself.

Fushi & friends don’t need Alme’s permission to demolish and rebuild private residences. But, things like the city walls, waterways, and the castle itself all fall under Alme’s control. If I had to guess, the castle is going to be the final thing Alme approves for rebuilding. And this will probably come after Fushi meets whoever she introduces him to next week.

I guess I should make my prediction about who that is now. I’m betting Alme introduces Fushi to her ailing father. We know Alme is still considered a princess, not a queen. To me, that implies her father, the king, is still alive.

But, we’ve also seen that Alme is the one ruling the country. If the king is alive, the only reason he wouldn’t be the one ruling is if he’s unwell. So, we’re likely going to see Fushi meet the king and get his blessing to save the country.

The king aside, I’m interested in seeing how Messar’s story concludes. We can be pretty sure he’ll end up as one of Fushi’s immortal soldiers. But, what does that mean for his relationship with Alme? Are we going to get some emotional final game between them? Or is he just going to disappear?

Rebuilding Renril

As I already mentioned, Fushi has been hard at work rebuilding the outer walls of Renril. But, unlike individual houses, he can’t exactly hide how he rebuilds the massive walls. Luckily, Bon has a plan. Fushi’s going to rebuild the walls at night while everyone’s focused on a festival.

At first, this is a good plan. But, some of the soldiers become suspicious of the wise man’s ability to build so many houses each day. And, they eventually discover the truth when they see Fushi raising a wall.

Upon discovering Fushi’s identity, things could have gone in two entirely different directions. Of course, we know things turned out well. The soldiers and civilians alike accept Fushi for who he is. Despite what the Church of Bennett claims, they’ve seen for themselves that he’s not a devil. And Fushi has his compulsion to help people to thank for that.

In past reviews, I’ve written a lot about how Fushi’s desire to save everyone is a weakness. It’s good that he wants to save everyone. However, it’s not a realistic goal and will lead to him suffering in the long run. But, in this one instance, it led to a positive outcome.

The reason the soldiers know Fushi isn’t evil is that he helped them or people they know when they were injured. One example is when he helped the mother of the female soldier Kamu has a crush on. Fushi gave her first aid in Sandel’s form.

I’m wondering how the Church of Bennett is going to respond after the battle of Renril. Surely, word’s going to get out that Renril sided with Fushi. So, is the church going to cut them off? And how will they react to learning that Fushi’s execution failed?

Conclusion

What do you think of To Your Eternity Season 2 Episode 13? Do you wish the entire episode followed Eko’s adventures? Is Messar going to be the one with the tragic end in this arc? And how did you expect the soldiers to react to learning Fushi’s identity? Let me know in the comments.
