This Time For Sure

Last week's out of the park finale was NOT the end of Fate Stay Night. Tonight's episode was.

In stark contrast to the white knuckles action of the climax, this epilogue is a mostly quiet affair which takes place a few years later in England. Flashbacks that serve to wrap up loose ends are woven into the story which involves Rin and Shirou taking a day off, contemplating what they've been through and how what they learned during their ordeal will impact their decisions for their future. 

Aside from from one momentary digression it's pretty much sublime. 


I'm kind of surprised that they did this. The episode was in some ways completely unnecessary, but it provided a very nice (if slightly bittersweet) denouement for what has been a superb (if occasionally quite dark) show.

1 I'll admit to feeling a sense of disappointment for this episode.  It was perfectly competent, but I got no real sense of emotional attachment between Rin and Shiro.  There were eps during the season that had more.

Damn shame, that.

I don't know if you watched Fate/Zero, but if not, the guy Shiro talked to in the halls of the school towards the end of the episode was Waver Velvet, master of Iskander (Rider) in the previous Holy Grail War...

2 Neither of them are particularly expressive, Shirou is fairly introverted and Toshaka os the high priestess of the church of Tsundere. The episode showed them both quite at ease with one another and Rin's last line indicated that not only are they close, but they've got quite a future...and its not impossible that it will be a happy one.
