Wow this episode really changed things. The council is gone, I tell you it is like Central 46, the a-hole authority figures that get killed, but it is hard to feel to bad for them. I say this at least they had a couple of members that are likable and they all have their own personality, which is more than I can say for Central 46.
Like I said, this changed everything because people died, that means death can happen, which is very important later on.
So we meet the 9 gates, and they are awesome, they are scary, and I don't know about you guys but Silver and Sayla are my favorites.
Anyway we get some comedy at the guild hall, which feels very out of place in this episode but they don't know what is going on, so you can't blame them for being business as usual.
And yes we see Cobra, and give him credit, he is not turning back on the other members of the Oracion Seis, most bad guys would sell out their comrades for their own benefit, Cobra is a better than his former master.
Now than we have Lexus team taking up jobs at Yajima restaurant, I wonder if Evergreen knows about Erza's history and how popular she was and is trying to out do her, because she always did have this inferiority complex with Erza. On a serious note, Tartarus note they are tyring to kill Yajima. Once again what happened earlier in the episode is important, because before that if this happened I wouldn't feel worried about Yajima dying, but because of what happened at the council, it is no sure thing Yajima is going to make him, and I was so worried that he was going to die.
Lexus arrives and he is ready to kill some butt.
Next episode the Tartarus onslaught continues.
