Tsuwabuki gets in an accident, then watches the silhouettes of Nanami, Utena, and Himemiya behind the curtain as they read through his diary, about how he's been spying on Nanami this whole time... he even chased her through the whole India thing.. he plans out a bunch of strategies to make Nanami fall for him... including posing as her big brother if she loses her memory, turning into a cow if she turns into one again..
Suddenly.. Utena and Wakaba are going to see Akio and Himemiya at this huge house.. he says that they've moved in here with Utena or something? Meanwhile, the student council is discussing the latest letter they got. Saionji is there too, just to say that he quits being the End of the World's lackey.
I've already verified this letter's contents. I passed through the Rose Gate... and in the middle of a stairway leading to the dueling arena... a gondola appeared.While he's saying all of this.. a pitcher keeps throwing strikes in front of them...?
I believe it's to carry us to a new stage.
Touga goes to try and convince Saionji to become Akio's (The End of the World's) lackey again. Akio comes and they both go for a ride with him.. Touga says that Akio is the one who helped that girl in the coffin, who wanted to see something eternal. Akio then shows that something to Saionji...
Miki asks Utena if she knows about the Gondola inside the spiral staircase... Saionji comes and declares he will take the Rose Bride and ride it to the castle where eternity dwells... another duel begins...
This time, the spiral staircase scene is entirely different. Utena and Himemiya ride up the gondola in the middle, and it shows them transforming into their duel/bride uniforms... the school uniform getting branches growing inside it...
Saionji somehow makes Utena's sword disappear, after saying that Himemiya doesn't have a will of her own... Himemiya stares blankly while Utena is about to be defeated... then she remembers her words of kindness, and jumps to her rescue... Himemiya does seem to have a will of her own... She puts her hand on Utena's chest...
Rose of nobility... Please... Come forth!She pulls a sword out of Utena.
Grant us the power to bring the world revolution!
Later, Akio is talking to Himemiya:
The Sword of Dios did not appear... and yet she still won the duel. Oh, it was magnificent...
Touga seems to be in league with Akio in some way... next the student council gets another letter, saying that they must duel and defeat Utena.
I don't like it. You can't just an adult who tells you that something is for your own good.
Touga goes to convince Miki next...
There's someone I want you to meet. There... Can't you hear it?The sound of a car approaches...
If your soul has not truly given up... then you can hear the sound... that races through the End of the World!
Come! Come approach us! Follow us to the world you seek!This time, Kozue is there in the car with him and Akio...
I reveal the End of the World, to you now as well.He jumps onto the hood of his car as it drives toward infinity...
Nanami's Egg - "Tamago Tamago"... um... wtf this episode... actually this is pretty par for a Nanami episode
Utena and Himemiya in bed:
Miss Utena, do you believe in reincarnation?
Hmm... I dunno.
It's said that when elephants reach the end of their lives... they leave the herd to die in secret.
Maybe they sneak off to die on their own... because they don't want their children to feel sad. Thoughts and feelings... passed from parent to child, till the end of time...
