Back on Track

Fate stay Night took a break from its superb pacing to drag a bit for two episodes during which a rather long fight took place, Rin was tied up with matters separating her from the group and Shiro, having come face to face with one result of some of the mistakes he's made, spent entirely too long beside himself with regret. 

Well, those two episodes are over now, Rin is back and in this episode our heroes take a brief moment to assess their situation.

"We're really screwed aren't we?" "Yep. Screwed. ""Totally screwed."

A lot of unexpected twists here, not the least of which is the discovery that the stakes have gotten MUCH higher than was previously apparent.  
This series remains excellent. even the last two episodes were interesting and moved the plot, they just drug a tad. I like the fact that Rin, who had maybe three minutes of screen time in those two episodes and was in a rather inglorious situation, still managed to come off as a badass...

One of the things that is neat is that, while the show is full of surprises in its own right, even people who saw the original series are finding the canon expanded upon in perfectly logical, but completely unexpected ways. 
This is a dark show, but it is really good thus far.
