The title of this episode rings true because we had am unexpected confession which made for an interesting development in the plot. FINALLY, we learn more about Yuliy’s connection to this ‘Sirius Box’, and the sole responsibility for this box rests with him. It was a good episode but it’s becoming questionable in terms of direction and plot.
Japanese Original Title: 本当の告白
Kershner opens up an old wound for Yuliy by revealing a hidden secret which nearly broke him. More is revealed about the Sirius Box and how imperative it is to find it before vampire leader Yevgraf. Yuliy finds a new resolve for himself, straying away from the revenge path and deciding to go alone to find the Sirius Box, without his comrades.
Willards Secret: There are things you just wouldn’t see coming: Willard, part of the cause in Yuliy’s clan, being killed; aiding the vampires in the name of science, by deciphering a document of the Sirius Box’s whereabouts; Yuliy’s homeland, Dokubil. What was the worst part hearing was that Willard just used Yuliy knowing he would find out eventually. During this tense moment, Yuliy is devastated by this secret and Willard is ready to die by Yuliy’s hands.
Wolf Mode: It was a heart-stopping moment when Yuliy lost it going into ‘wolf mode’ due to Willard’s deception. Yuliy’s bloody fangs ready to kill Willard, for a second it looked like he was about to kill Willard. I want to see more of Yuliy in ‘wolf mode’, very cool.
Father Figure: It was a sad yet beautiful moment that got to me bad, even after Yuliy found out Willard’s secret. Yuliy could never kill Willard, all the ten years they spent together. Willard was like a father to him. This moment nearly had me teary, Yuliy and Willard relationship is a touching one and impactful.
Bye Kershner: Agatha, Frankenstein, and now Kershner have said goodbye early in the series. It was laughable how Kershner was cut off from the series so early. A pawn will only be so useful, haha.
Army Has The Box! Interesting development to learn the Army has the Sirius Box but as to why who knows at this point.
Themes And Trivia
Secrets: There is a right time and place to reveal secrets. It was awful for Yuliy to learn of Willard’s secret, part of the cause of Yuliy’s clan slaughtered by the vampires’ – from the low-life Kershner. People keep secrets for their reasons, for someones’ protection or selfish reasons. In Willard’s case, he never wanted to open up old wounds for Yuliy.
Professor Willard: Willard was a scientist before becoming a vampire hunter. He did extensive research on the Sirius box, deciphering a document with the location of the Sirius Box, aiding the vampires’ search for it, in order to restore their clan.
What would be good to know is how many episodes this series will be because this episode had me questioning the plot direction and how it will conclude. This episode we learned something interesting regarding Sirius box: it’s some form of technology. I’ve loved Sirius The Jaeger so far but right now, all I see with the plot is Vampires and Wolves fighting over a box. I’m hoping there will be a big twist of some sort. Another issue have with the series currently is character backstory. Cutting off two characters, Agatha and now Kershner already, their characters were never explored. It made them insignificant to the story as nothing but useless pawns, to which was obvious they would be cut off eventually.
We’ve had coverage on Jaegers Yuliy, Willard, and Philip so far but not on Dorothea or Fallon. Not to mention Yevgraf so called clan leader. We know nothing about his intentions – I don’t care about his character, period. If this series will conclude itself in twelve episodes, then I’ll be worried. GIVE ME more coverage on the other Jaegers. I WANT to know their reasons for becoming vampire hunters. I adore the jaeger group. I want to like them more but the series hasn’t explored this yet. We’re on Episode 7 now and my hopes aren’t high.
Besides all, this episode was still good and very engaging. The series so far has done well to keep me engaged, but I’m worried how many episodes the series will be and where the plot will lead too.
Pawn Is Only So Useful
Though certain doubts about the series have crept in. It certainly was a engaging, interesting episode. I’m excited still for next episode, Yuliy deciding to go it alone and find the Sirius box.
