    Last time: Nyx nearly gets nixxed.

    Know what I like best about this car? The price.

    I miss this show's original theme.

    Nice siren. You get that off an ice cream truck?

    That car is dead to me!

    So the whole premise of this episode is Lupin driving a rusty, possessed luxury car?

    Why do I have the theme to The Adventures of Milo and Otis running in my head right now?

    And how do I still remember that movie?

    Damn these new cars too big to drive through old Italian streets!

    I'm in love with my car. Got a feel for my automobile.

    This was the saddest and most emotional Lupin episode. Who expected this?

    Got a little misty-eyed at the end. Good episode.

    I thought that this episode was pretty good. I was surprised that they actually had an episode devoted primarily to an older couple and the husband coming to terms with his wife being close to death. That's why he wanted to get rid of the car and covered all of their old photos. He didn't want to be reminded of happier times when she was near death. I don't know how the car knew where it was going when Lupin was driving it, but it was a touching ending. He knew where the car was going and spent one more sunset with his wife before she died.

    It still felt kind of weird in the sense that I wouldn't expect a show with a reborn Leonarod da Vinici as its villain to have an episode centered a topic like this, but it was still touching and emotionally effective nonetheless. Overall, it was a pretty good episode.
