Is Rachel the resident of the B1 floor? Was she the one that killed her parents? Why is she so afraid of letting Zack know the truth? Finally, this week’s episode of Angels of Death shed some light to the whole insanity that was happening.
Zack proceeds further into the floor and witnesses a dead couple being sewed up together. Rachel follows him and nervously asks him to kill her at that moment, but items of the room trigger her memories and she faints. Danny then arrives and locks Zack out of the room where Rachel is in, offering to unlock it only when Zack fully explores the floor and finds out Rachel’s past. Zack begins exploring the rest of the floor and after encountering various traps and almost killed by one of them, he is saved by Gray, who reveals to him that he controls the entire the building, and uses it as a way to study and observe people who believe in God, with Rachel as his current subject. He then says to Zack that he has become interested in Zack and Rachel’s relationship, so he gives him a clue in order to help him proceed. In the meantime, Rachel wakes up next to Danny who makes her watch Zack from the cameras investigating the floor and ending up in her own room, where he views a recorded news report saying that Rachel’s parents were murdered while she was found at the scene unharmed, implying that Rachel might have murdered her own parents.
Why is Rachel so afraid of Zack finding out the truth? Zack is a killer so he wouldn’t really care if Rachel was one as well, right? I mean it’s pretty obvious that she is not normal since she is carrying a gun around and killing people, so what’s the big deal? It is because she lied to him? If you really think about it, she never really lied to him, it’s just that she never mentioned her story to him. In an earlier episode she says that ‘I have been brought to counseling after witnessing something tragic’, this doesn’t necessarily mean that she killed her parents herself or that she lied to Zack in the first place. But after seeing her reaction in this episode, she is definitely involved in the incident, at least the ‘sewing of the parents’ part. Maybe she thinks that her ways of killing were so extreme that even Zack will think that she is unable to be saved from ‘God’.
The reason behind this facility: Gray proclaimed himself as God and created that place in order to test people who believed in God. I think that the meaning of the so-called ‘angels’ here is more like ‘those who serve God’. But, the real question here is: if Rachel was brought as a test subject to the facility, why does she have her own floor? Was Rachel and ‘angel’ at the beginning and then she became a test subject? Does this mean that Gray wanted to test her to become an ‘angel’ or got just curious of her beliefs?
Themes & Trivia
They missed so much greatness in this episode: It’s just small details but the scenes of Zack encountering the traps and trying to solve the riddles are hilarious in the game. In the anime during the pizza scene, he mentions that he isn’t that stupid to fall for that but in the game he was actually stupid enough to eat the pizza. The pizza was super spicy that got him so mad that he kicked the table over in rage yelling ‘Motherfucking hot fuck on a fucking plate’. The key for the basement was originally in the toilet and he was very unhappy about that. He then tried to wash his hands but the only available water was in the bathtub which was full of piranhas. Not knowing what piranhas are, he was very confused about fish attacking him, making him swear even more.
I love how Zack is able to go around the floor doing front rolls and dodging arrows like a boss when he just had his belly sewed up. He is a monster, after all. Honestly, Zack’s ignorance over everything that is happening is rather amusing to watch. His quotes and reactions always make me giggle: ‘What’s up with you people? You’re creeping me out.’
You all look like a bunch of idiots.
The anime is not over guys, stay tuned for the next four episodes that will only be streamed online in order to find out the truth about Rachel’s past.
NEXT TIME: I’m not Your God.
