Judging by the title I gave this episode review, it is safe to say this episode went in the direction I thought it would, and wow it did not disappoint. I mean, on one hand, it was not surprising, it just it went in the turn I thought it would, and went another way I did not expect. Either way, let’s get right into it.

The Plot:

Well, Darkness is still getting her beating from everyone in the town, at this point I am starting to question if she even has an off switch.

Anyway, at the main church, Aqua is taking confessions from people. This includes Kazuma, who teases her. But this does not stop her from continuing, and badmouthing Eris to gain more support from her followers.

A little time later, Kazuma finds out the hot springs do have mixed bath, well, obviously, he goes there.

While he is there, Darkness and Megumin go into the women’s only bath. Kazuma goes to listen in on their conversations, only to be caught in the process.

Anyway, later, it turns out Aqua was kicked out by the church that worships her. She obviously does not take it well; this was due to her purifying the hot springs into just normal hot water. She cries and nearly puts Wiz to death. But Aqua also thinks that the Devil King’s army is poisoning the hot springs.

The following day she sprouts this theory to the town, and even reveals that she is the goddess they worship. But not only do the people not believe she is their goddess, but also thinks she might be a part of the Devil King’s army.

Thus, that night, the town form an angry mob waiting outside their hotel to end the episode.

Overall Thoughts:

Like I said at the start of this review, and even in the previous review, I had a feeling it would turn into Aqua’s followers turning against her. However, I did not see the fact that they would think she is part of the Devil King’s army. That was a rather nice twist. Honestly it does bring up the question on how they will get out of this mess.

By the end, I doubt they will believe Aqua in her saying she is their goddess. I mean even Megumin and Darkness don’t believe her when she tells them. So, it could be interesting when the day comes when they find out she really is a goddess, but I doubt it will be during this season.

Either way, not much to say about this episode, the latter half has certainly been a bit stronger than the start. The next episode might be the last. Either way, hopefully it ends on a high note.

Overall Enjoyment: 90/100
