Natsuhi: Its one thing if it were a complete stranger, but this is your own flesh and blood son.
A: And as we know from Natsuhi, its totally okay to yeet a strangers son off a cliff!

We cant remember how Asumu died (if it was ever stated), but Rudolf blames himself for killing her because of Kyries pregnancy
A: Not how death works, but that would be handy. Oh, Ill just keep the cancer from spreading until this big plot moment occurs.

Talking about Battler not returning to the island
A: Imagine if Krauss got a bill for the rental of one white horse. Hed be like wtf is this?

Gaap and Clair talk about the differences between men arguing vs. women arguing. Men are fiery, but quickly burn out. Women burn steadily for years.
A: Correct. And often because you bitches keep adding fuel to the fire!

Shannon talks about how she was determined to start a new life the day Battler returned
A: So, back in Ep 1 and 2 and every one, every time George proposes to Shannon, Im all like aww, cute! and youre like nooo, pain. Im starting to see why you were like that!

Shannon discusses her plan to save up her wages, move out, live with Battler, etc.
A: I wonder if the family would have let her ever leave. Shes so wrapped up in the familys business, whether she knows it or not. I feel like this plan was doomed from the get-go.

Another mention of the white horse
A: Now my brain is supplying an image of Battler on one of those stick-horses

A: So Asumus dying was just really bad timing. Battler *was* planning on coming back, but he got caught up in Rudolfs bullshit.
K: I wonder how long he even remembered his promise to Shannon. Hes what, 14 here? How many 14 year olds remember a silly promise after a week?
A: And yet to Shannon, it was everything.

Shannon fantasizes that Battler got into a fight with his father as an excuse to change his last name so he can marry Shannon without trouble.
A: Oh honey again, so much to unpack. Also, youre digging a very deep hole here.

Shannon: I should hold out hope for Battler and think of this as training for when I become his wife.
A: Speaking of a lot to unpack shes basically comparing being a wife to being a maidservant.
Scene changes to a family conference 5 years ago, when Ange was just born. Natsuhi and Eva welcome Kyrie into the family
A: As much as these two are bitches, I still cant help but like them.
K: Like as characters or together, or?
A: Both! I meant as characters, but I like the idea of them fucking each other, too
K: *laugh* I agree! And yes, the mothers are my favorite characters in this book. Theyre so fun, even when theyre being total bitches.

A: Also, no one let Rosa hold baby Ange.

A: If I am ever wealthy enough to have servants, they will all be given free and mandatory psychiatric therapy. Do you frequently hear witches talk to you in your dreams?

Jessica makes Shannon promise to get boyfriends together
A: I mean, technically Shannon will get a girlfriend the same time Jessica gets a boyfriend!

The Mammon-maid is right several times in a row. She says the quiet ones always finish first in reference to getting boyfriends, and then later says not to try and guess what a guy is thinking.
A: Listen to her!

George says hes happy for Battler forging his own path in life.
A: I love how every time you appear, you just make it worse.

As time passes, Shannons memory of the event gets twisted. First it was Battler on a white horse, now its but only when you are resolved to live life for me.

Kyrie says Battler wrote a letter to everyone. Shannon gets hopeful but yeah. Then afterwards, George gives Shannon the empty envelopes.
A: Which explains why Beatrice announces herself with a letter!

Clair says she cant hate Battler for breaking the promise, when to him, it was never a promise to begin with. It was just him being a stupid teenager and joking around. :(

Shannon creates Kanon and gives her love of Battler to Beatrice.

At the end of the chapter, theres a moment where Shannon is like what was the new servants name? Oh yes, its and me and Arria BOTH felt like it was like in RPGs where a name-entry screen is about to pop up. Like, we felt it in our HEARTS that we were about to name Kanon. xD

The portrait of Beatrice goes up and the epitaph is revealed
Natsuhi: Father, what is this?
A: Part of me wishes Natsuhi had phrased this as Father, what the fuck is this?

Eva reads the epitaph and immediately thinks Man, Kinzo really doesnt want Krauss to be the successor.
A: I do love how EVERYONE has come to that conclusion. Everyone hates Krauss. Even Krauss.

Rosa shows Maria the epitaph, who gets really excited about reviving Beato
A: Id feel better about this scene if I felt for a single moment that Rosas reaction would be You gave it your best, sweetie.
Scene cuts out after Maria is finished talking
A: Cut out, because I think we can guess now that Rosa is beating the ever loving shit out of her child.

Genji is asking Kinzo what will happen if there is no miracle.
A: Is this his way of subtly asking are you going to rape a baby? Because if you rape a baby, there wont be any miracles happening!

Maria, and really Shannon, name the demons inside her head
A: This entire scene can be summed up with: a legal pad, upon which is written the symptoms are getting worse.

Maria: Were gonna solve the riddle! Then well go to the Golden Land where theres no Black Witch, and maybe Papa is there, and theres no school or homework or bullies
A: This scene is DEEPLY sad.

Scene with Shannon and Kanon
A: So when Kanon appears, is this Shannon sitting Genji down and asking Hey I dont have tits or menstruation. Whats going on, dude?
K: Yeah, pretty much!

We get to the epitaph solving part! Huzzah! We learn Kinzos homeland was Taiwan, and I get to reveal that Arrias computer has a Made In Taiwan sticker on it that has been bothering me THIS ENTIRE GAME and how I always wanted to say something snarky like the answer is right in front of you.

Arria is so satisfied to have the riddle solved lol. She opened up a map of Taiwan on Google Maps to follow along.

Kirigan, Qilian, Quadrillion, Lord U feels good saying these finally.

A: This is a lot of bullshit just to get to the word quadrillion

While Beatrice was stuck trying to figure out how to pull apart the two who were close, Arria did solve that part.

Arria had the idea that if the letters are spun during the gouging, to read them upside down. That WOULD be pretty clever, honestly

Beatrice: I turned them, but nothing happened
A; I can hear the Willy Wonka You get nothing!

The lion statue turned around
A: HOW DID YOU NOT HEAR THAT? Its not like the servants are oiling that every night? Imagine Genji sneaking out with a bottle of olive oil. What are you doing, sir? Masturbating.

Beato finds the gold.
Then she hears footsteps
A; Genji? Kinzo? Take the easy way out and say its Kanon?

Genji: Put this on
A: Nooooo?
Beato: What is this?
Genji: You used to wear this
A; Your mother and grandmother wore it! Try not to think of that too hard

A: Also, for that much gold, Id do whatever Genji wanted. Because we live in a capitalist hellscape.

Genji: Put on this dress. Were going to see the Master
A: Oh this sounds rapey. This is the start to a lot of pornos.

A: I like the ascension to Beatrice-hood they do in the Golden Land a LOT more. Yes, magical council of witches, wizards, and demons triggers a LOT of things in me, but the worst thing theyll do is cut your head off! This is so much more real and disgusting.

A: Find a sword! Come on, hes an old pretentious white man, hes got to have a sword somewhere! Hell Im a young pretentious white bitch and Ive got swords all over!
K: Is he white if hes Japanese?
A: I mean okay, fair point. But old pretentious Japanese men have swords on their walls, too!

Kinzo says Im sorry
A: There is NO amount of Im sorry that can take away what youve done!

A: I like the idea that this man is crying and kneeling before his own grandson in a dress. By like I mean it makes me feel disgust, but I love it. It makes me feel the kind of visceral horror that makes me want to take a bath.

A: If this had happened to me and I was in Beatrices shoes, Id be like Oh, honey, the coroners gonna take days to clean up your remains. Youre going to die, and its going to take days. The coroners not gonna find pieces of you and need to run a DNA test to make sure youre human. Youre lucky if I put you through the wood chipper feet first.

A: I also like that Kinzos grasp on reality is exactly as strong as Marias. Put someone in a pretty dress, and they are Beatrice.

Kinzo is so freaking excited to see Beatrice. He does his usual Kinzoing and then dies
Nanjo: He died peacefully.
K: NOTHING about that was peaceful!

Beatrice: Im glad to have a lot of money, but I want him back
A; I swear to God I thought she was talking about Kinzo at first. Like why do you want HIM back?! He raped your mother! Heohh, Battler~

Genji: Ask any question you want
A: *snort* I am horrible. First thing that came to mind was Professor Oaks Are you a boy or girl?

Theyre gonna tell Krauss about Kinzos death and Lions succession as the head
A: Genji better be armed when that happens.
A: I would love if Kinzo wrote the epitaph when Krauss was, like, 10. That way theres no way for him to debate well, Father was insane and that will is not legally binding! Like no, he knew you were a fuck-up when you were in grade school.

A: Ya know, if you kept the gold, you could buy a plane ticket and go to where Battler is.

Kumasawa: Are you sure you want to go back to being the same?
A: No shit. Go back to being a servant? Because that is a little crazy!
