In this episode, the girls go after Totetsu but are lured into an eight field escape trap by Konton. Inside the trap, Moroha is forced to climb up a bottomless ravine. Meanwhile, Towa and Setsuna wander around a seemingly endless field.
There’s not a whole lot to be said about this one by itself since this one and the next one are so tied together they’re basically a two parter, but what I do like about this episode is it really demonstrates just how far Towa and Setsuna have come in terms of trusting each other.
At the beginning of the show, Setsuna really wanted nothing to do with her sister, didn’t even really believe she had a sister. Now in episode 17, she trusts her enough that they can actually come up with an execute a plan together. This is really the first time we’ve seen that from these two and it was nice to see.
The only questions I have at this point, are why on earth no one has caught on that Riku can’t be trusted, and how does Setsuna know anything about their clan’s abilities when until recently, she had no idea who her family was?
