The weary companions sit tight as Yûko finally reveals some big secrets regarding the one responsible for their individual and shared plights, but she can't tell them why without breaking the rules of interference (in the workings of fate, the universe, what have you). And soon they are moving on to the next world, still gathering memory feathers, but with the new purpose of chasing after one of their own who has gone on before them, as the battle between fate and free will begins in earnest.
Everyone's emotions are stretched tight and in confusion and I just want to reach in and give them all hugs. I love the dramatic turn events have taken and can't wait to see how the personal and group dynamics change with their altered circumstances.
