|Episode 6 - Dawn of the Golden Witch continued|
Kanon had to kill Rosa as part of his trial. Rosa talked about her own trial of love, having to pay back the debt she made to support Maria's father, who left them... Maria is only 9 years old, That's only half of the time that Kyrie had to suffer through a similar hell, so Rosa still holds out hope that she'll be able to get back together with him after she repays her debt.
Kanon kills Rosa easily without hesitation. Then Maria comes in attacks him, with Sakutaro in tow... Shannon suddenly appears and attacks Maria to complete her trial. Sakutaro can nullify offensive magic, but Shannon's magic is defensive. Maria and Sakutaro get pushed into the wall by her shield.
In Maria's dying breath, she cackles and says this is a perfect closed room murder, and that wannabe detective won't be able to deny the magic of witches now...
The young Beato also had taken the love trial for Battler's sake.. she chose Natsuhi as the target. Natsuhi's mirror repelled Beato away. She gets help from Battler's servant, Lucifer... Battler then joins in on the game... says he already took care of his sacrifice.
So, Hachijo Tohya's viewpoint is that the crimes at Rokkenjima were because of a trial of love started by demons. But still, Hachijo's tale does seem to have the same scent as Beatrice's tales.
If one has reached Beatrice's truth, they can create a new tale, whoever they are.
Now the first twilight has past... the 6th victim is still unknown... Rudolph and Kraus try to enter the room that's locked from the inside with a chain...
That room... all throughout this game there have been scenes of some unknown person locked in that room by some demon magic, unable to yell for help... They opened that room up and found... Battler's corpse...!?
Battler and Erika fought with the red and blue truth over the closed room murders of the first twilight. This time, Erika didn't make her detective proclamation, and acknowledged that she had an unfair advantage in the last game, and this time would fight on the same level that old Battler did with Beatrice.
Young Beato noticed that the two of them seemed to be having fun with each other, even though they were enemies.
The piece Erika starts suspecting the servants as the culprits.
Battler: Now I finally understand magic, so when this game ends, I'll be able to carry you off the game board.
Bern had Ange and the rest of Battler's family gruesomely killed over and over again, to spark revenge against Beato. She didn't want the witch side to lose calmly and elegantly like this, with all this stuff about love and promises.. she wanted Beato's truth to expose and humiliate her.
Bern restricts Erika from the detective authority, so that if she manages to win despite that, it will be a victory worthy of the witch of miracles.
A truth with no observers is the same as an illusion.Erika tricked Battler into giving her some duct tape to create red truth with, as a way of evening out the odds.. She wasn't really at a disadvantage at all.
Meanwhile the love witches start the 2nd trial: Tear apart the two who are close.
Erika used 2 of the 3 rooms worth of duct tape seals to seal the 2 rooms that the remaining survivors (except herself) were staying in... this gave Dlanor permission to unsheath her red sword.
While Erika is roaming the mansion, a letter from the witch appears, addressed to Erika, saying that Battler's corpse has disappeared from the room it was in. Erika forgot to mention that she had already used up the first room worth of duct tape seals on that room.
The theme of this game... You can only have a magical result if it was something that could have been done without magic.
The 2 types of magic:
An illusion - a lie with no observers that takes place in a time/location without any anti-magic toxin. this kind of magic doesn't have to match a result.
True magic - a magical theory that matches a result.. only the unobserved process of the result can be transformed into magic.
It seems this game has reached the endgame even before the 2nd twilight... Erika checks the closed room that Battler was supposed to be in, and finds him not in there, just as the witch's letter told... if Battler can't come up with some logic to have him escape from that closed room without breaking the seal, then his game will end in a logic error, which will mean his immediate defeat.
So... THIS was what all those scenes were about... Battler trapped in that closed room by a demon, forbidden from removing the chain or calling for help... If Battler can find a way to escape from the room while Erika isn't looking, and keeping the chain lock in tact, then he can make a magical illusion of him changing into a gold butterfly and slipping out through the crack in the door.
Battler decides to take that chance... if this is a logic error, he will be eternally trapped in a hell where he has to constantly think of ways to escape the impossible closed room...
WOAHHHHH... Erika is actually the culprit in this game! The 6 corpses were all just playing dead in Battler's game to fool Erika, but she went and killed all of them herself, to corner Battler. This is not what I was expecting at all... insane...
That's why she couldn't make the detective proclamation.. Knox's 7th: It's forbidden for the detective to be the culprit.
For creating a logic error, Battler was sentenced to being eternally trapped in that closed room, having to think of a way to escape... Beato stayed by the side of game Battler, who now had an empty, doll-like expression.
Lambdadelta told Beato that her and Bern have both survived an ideal like this before. Beato promised Lambda that they would escape with absolute certainty...
Back at the love trial, the demons announce that Battler's pair has forfeited... and the remaining 2 must duel each other. Beato asks old Beato for help with Battler's predicament... but the "old Beato" who could solve those kinds of riddles is the completed form of these 2 Beatos.
The love demons say that the miracle of love can solve Battler's closed room trap... Ange doesn't understand how that's possible.
Bern grants Erika the permanent title of Witch of Truth. Erika then gets to marry the lifeless Battler, and become the new territory lord.
Gaap tries to save Battler, exposes a window on the other guest room that could have been unsealed at the time of the logic error, so someone from there could have saved Battler and took his place... But Dlanor temporarily denies it with the red, to prevent the wedding from being stopped. Bern and Lambda both realize a trick could be used to save him...
If that move is used, part of Beato's heart will be exposed.It goes back to the love trial... Shannon defeats Kanon, and then the 2/3 subhumans that lost, joined their souls with Shannon so that Shannon could become a full human... Shkanontrice.
Beato, just before dissappearing, gives her love of Battler to old Beato...
From this day forward, you are no longer the Rokkenjima ghost that lives only to play pranks.
From this day forward, you will become the master of this island and wait for the day that he comes to fulfill his promise.
From this day forward, you will do this in my place.
From this day forward, you will no longer be me.
From this day forward, I will no longer be you.
Please forgive me for pushing all of my worries onto you, while I alone try to find happiness.
From this day forward, you have the right to hate everything.
From this day forward, you are the Golden Witch, Beatrice.
And one day... you will destroy everything, revive everything... you will bring blessings to all lovers...
With love, they will be able to see us...
Just as Kanon dies in the trial world, Kanon/Yoshiya in the guesthouse dies suddenly for no reason... and vanishes right in front of everyone.
Kanon/Beato talk to each other as spirits... Kanon agrees to go to the guest room and let Battler out... Since Kanon is no longer sealed in the guesthouse.. Beato can use her magic to switch him with Battler.
A witch is not one who solves puzzles.. a witch's job is to use magic to create insane puzzles that no one could understand.
It's about time they learned the true terror of the Golden Witch Beatrice, the one who can create endless closed room tricks of the most horrific kind, tricks that can make even the demons of hell prostrate themselves in shock!Finally... Beato appears in front of Erika and Battler... puts on that troll grin.
...Did I keep you waiting? Furudo Erikaaa?! ...I'm here to celebraaaaaate!A lovers duel between Beato and Erika began
Because of our arrogance in thinking that only one truth exists... whenever we find one truth, we have been blinded to all others... Thank you, Beatrice-san... I never thought... that I would learn, the true nature of this world from a witch.Even after Erika learned to see multiple truths, Beatrice still defeated her, by denying Kanon's existence in the guest room with red truth.
Beatrice and Battler killed Erika once and for all.
That ending was so hype... I'm addicted to this.
