Umineko no Naku Koro ni – Episode 17: promotion

October 24, 2009
In this episode, Battler decides to aknowledge Beatrice as his opponent again only after she proves she’s a “real witch”, who actually uses her magic to help people, as magic was supposed to exist for. So, this time we see a totally different moe-Beatrice, who keeps on changing. She revives Shannon with the help of George and in the very end of the episode, she wishes to do the same with Kanon, even if that costs her her life. After all, she wants to keep playing with Battler no matter what…
The episode picks up from where the last one left off, with Eva and company discovering the corpses. Eva cries over her dead husband’s corpse as Battler tries to realize what’s happened. George tells him to hang in there, and for that he’s scolded, having already lost a lover and a parent and still worrying about others.
Game room: Battler monologues about the worth of life with Virgilia, Ronove and MoeBeato as his crowd. Since humans only live for a limited time, they live their lives with everything they’ve got. For Beatrice to toy with them and stepping on their worth, Battler can’t forgive her. Beato tries to stop him and explain herself but she’s soon put well off her place by Virgilia, who tells her to keep quiet and listen to what Battler has to say. Battler keeps on telling her he kinda understands her situation though, having to continue the murders in order for her ressurection. However, any unnecessary actions of cruelty are nothing more than her bloodlust going wild. Controlling over people’s lives has made her forget how to respect life itself. Battler refuses to aknowledge that as his opponent. Virgilia makes a comment on how Endless Witches play with life and death like if it were a game. She is then asked by Battler the reason Endless Magic exists. Her answer is simple enough for Battler to pronnounce Beato as a failure of a witch and definitely not worth being his opponent; it exists to bring happiness to the human world. Beato stands up and asks him when will he finally accept her again, and what does she have to do for it, were it to happen. Battler just tells her to think about it herself, or ask Ronove or Virgilia if she feels confused. As she puts on a crying face, Battler promises not to let go of her game –wait for her untill she finally becomes a ‘real witch’. She oaths she’ll make sure to have this happen and thanks him.
Back to the mansion, the Ushiromiyas were now locking up so to stay safe. Of course, little obstacles such as locked windows and doors wouldn’t be a problem for the Golden Witch, Beatrice, but that they don’t know… yet. Krauss announces to the rest they were unable to find the guns and key of Kyrie and Rudolf. The kids move into their room, silence overrules the whole place. Battler wonders why do people have to die since that brings so much sadness to the world. Jessica joins him and brings up the example of their Grandfather, who was so obsessed over reviving Beatrice. Not being able to stand up another minute like this, George leaves the room to get coffee, refusing the idea of the others tagging along.
Halfway through his way, Beato calls out his name and appears before him, asking him if he wants to see Shannon again. George, although starled, states he’ll give her anything she wants in exchange for that wish of his. Beato however felt like granting it for free, trying to become a witch who is able of helping people. She tells him that now she’s abandoned the title of an Endless Witch, her magical power is insufficient, and so she asks for George to help her with it. He agrees gladly, and they both teleport to someplace else. Their actions have been well aware off though. Eva-Beatrice, who was outside with Ronove, the Siestas and a Sister noticed something strange from the guesthouse. The Siestas apologise for not noticing as well, and so does Ronove and Lucifer -although the last two seem to be faking it.
Eva was now sleeping in a room with Krauss and Natsuhi, the rest of the adults minus Dr. Nanjo. While taking that rest of hers, she talks about things with Eva-Beatrice through her mind. She says that she was wrong by thinking that by attaining the Ushiromiya family headship she would be satisfied. At the time she saw that huge pile of gold, she started lusting for it, wanting it all for herself. At that time Eva-Beatrice was born. All because she couldn’t overcome that temptation. Eva-Beatrice isn’t just her heart from her days as a girl, she’s also the evil part of her heart. In that case though, Eva would be held responsible for the deaths of Rosa, Maria, Rudolf, Kyrie and even Hideyoshi himself. Upon hearing her husband’s name she loses it, crying out to learn the reason Eva-Beatrice killed him. Eva-Beatrice tells her that he was being noisy and obnoxius, and also blames her for choosing a husband like that. Eva finally breaks down to tears and tells her that a kid like her would never understand anything about how good Hideyoshi was. Kinda irritated by her, Eva-Beatrice reminds her she made all her dreams come true. After all, she had found the gold and obtained the headship. All the other dreams Eva made during her adulthood matter not for the witch, who now takes an aggresive stance over her. Eva makes clear they’re not the same person anymore and orders her to get lost. She does so, pissed off, leaving Eva behind her wondering if she really killed Hideyoshi.
Krauss lights up a smoke and Eva starts acting up to it, coughing. He immidiately apologizes and asks Natsuhi to bring her some water. Eva tells them she’s just fine and leaves the room to get some fresh air, telling them she’ll make coffee once she comes back. Natsuhi realizes that her husband actually cares about his brothers and sisters, who he’s been bullying so arrogantly all this time, after all. Someplace outside, Eva-Beatrice orders the Siestas to take both of their lives, which they do moments later using those cool arrows of them.
We now move to see Beato again, who had teleported with George to where Shannon’s dead body was lying. Having to use both her and George’s powers to give life back to Shannon, she asks him to try and remember Shannon’s form from when she were still alive. While the spell is being casted, she tries to realise the worth of a human life, seeing how hard George was trying for his lover’s sake. For her, death meant nothing more than just the front or back of a coin, which she could flip anytime. She comes to the conclusion that Endless Witches like her are somewhat inferior to humans, who live for a limited amount of time. At that time, the spell is cast and Shannon’s lifeless corpse is brought back to life. While they finally embrace again and exchange lovetalk, Eva-Beatrice orders the Siestas to shoot their new targets, who are no one other than our lovebirds. Another bolt of light strikes them in the form of an arrow and takes their lives away forevermore. Surprised and annoyed, Beato abandons the room, leaving their bodies behind. The Siestas ask Eva-Beatrice if it were a good move not to attack Beatrice herself at that time, where they had the upper hand. Eva-Beatrice assures them that Beato won’t be taken down so easily, and that they should wait before they make their move.
Meanwhile, Eva regroups with Nanjo and the rest of the teens, who are in search of George and Jessica’s parents. They start by searching at the rose gardens, where they come across two corpses. Natsuhi’s and Krauss’. Jessica goes mad, and so does Eva, who’s now more worried for her son’s life than ever. They both dash off to different directions, with Battler following Eva who searches for George, and Nanjo going after Jessica who’s crying over her dead parents’ bodies.
The scene moves on with Eva and Battler. They’re now inside the mansion searching for Eva’s (dead) son. Outside one of the mansion’s doors their’s another bloody symbol, this time having numbers drawn on top of it. The numbers read ‘07151129’ and coincidentally, Battler’s birthday is on the 15th of July. Eva writes them down before she unlocks the door to the room her dead son was at. George was lying next to Shannon, at the exact same spot they died at; nobody had moved them. Battler worries that he’s up next, ready to die and leave his little sister Ange behind, all alone. Jessica dashes into the room angrilly, Dr. Nanjo trying to calm her down. She blames Eva for the murders, since she was the only one who was with Krauss and Natsuhi. Eva pleads innocent and asks her why is George dead too, then. Jessica gets pissed off and attacks Eva, who shoots at bullet at her by accident, luckilly not hurting her more seriously than just a discharge injury at her eyes due to the fire. Eva flees the scene and Battler follows her, while Dr. Nanjo takes Jessica in for treatment.
Jessica’s injury was a minor one, only taking away her visibility for a small amount of time. All the time she was treated she babbled about how Eva is the real culprit, the one behind the murders. Dr. Nanjo however wasn’t as convinced as her and tried to calm her down before leaving the room to find Battler. That would never happen though, he was the next one. Eva-Beatrice herself appears before him to carry out the ninth twilight, which will let her free. He pleads for his life and tells her he has a sick grandchild to take care off. That wouldn’t stop her, of course, from killing him. Moving on, her next toy would be Jessica, who had zero anti-magic power and resistance, due having lost her sense of sight. Jessica cries out for Kanon to save her one last time.
For the episode’s grand finale, we have Beatrice deciding to bring Kanon back to life, so he can save her. Ronove warns her that there is a huge risk in this that she may lose her life. Still, she’s decided she’ll do it to prove Battler her worth. She orders Ronove to hide himself while bidding her farwell…
My thoughts:
Not much this week either, it was an OK episode I guess. Beatrice sure did it this time though, she hated Shannon so much for living her love and now there she is, giving back life not only to her, but risking her life to do the same for Kanon. Of course, we all know how’s Kanon gonna end up again, in case he’s brought back to life…
Beato dying right now is out of the question too… Right?
