Screaming Lady strikes back: First jump scare of the screaming lady in the previous episode was not enough. Now we had one more in the beginning of this one.
Father Julia: I was in a weird mood while watching this episode, so I don’t know if it’s my eyes or I am losing my mind, but I think in some scenes Julia’s hair is blond and in some others is white. Yes? No? No one cares? Alright…
Walking scene: I found that scene where Roberto and Hiraga are walking, after Roberto gets out of the hospital and they are talking under the sunlight and the lighting is changing as they walk, really well done. I mean, for the standards of this show, it was a very nice detail.
Roberto’s evil laugh: Mate, whatever you try to do you will never be able to do better than this. Sorry, not sorry.
Themes & Trivia
House of Bourbona: The House of Bourbon is a European royal house of French origin, a branch of the Capetian dynasty. Bourbon kings first ruled France and Navarre in the 16th century. By the 18th century, members of the Bourbon dynasty also held thrones in Spain, Naples, Sicily, and Parma. Spain and Luxembourg currently have Bourbon monarchs.
Dianoia: Dianoia means intellect or genius in Greek. It is a term used by Plato for a type of thinking, specifically about mathematical and technical subjects. It is the capacity for, process of, or result of discursive thinking, in contrast with the immediate apprehension that is characteristic of noesis.
Sucking out snake venom: Sucking out snake venom is not the right thing to do if you see someone get bitten by a snake. Snake venom spreads quickly and efficiently through the lymphatic system. It is almost impossible to suck hard enough to pull an adequate amount of venom out to make a difference. The best thing to do is stay calm and seek medical help asap.
I have to say that the part where we see Roberto testing his faith in the Gates of Hell or whatever, I was like wtf is happening again. And the Atotelus guy, with the scale and everything, the women, the money, and the books… It felt like they’ve been trippin’ a little bit. Also, Father Julia takes Roberto, the biggest bookworm ever, in a library with books from the 16th century with some of them cursed, but he didn’t even mention it on time, with no light whatsoever when Roberto JUST had a panic attack and there is a prophecy about him getting all possessed by a demon. Yes guys, Father Julia is definitely a good human being…
Also, I don’t know what exactly Roberto realized by the end of the episode but that guy really needs some time off the miracles adventures. This one is a bit too heavy on him I think.
