So in the episode 20 post we speculated about Lunatic might be with the “real Ouroboros” – that is, if it even exists. Something kept bothering me about the whole thing, thought… And then I remembered that Lunatic killed that guy with the Ouroboros tattoo in episode 6.

This episode had two major points: Kotetsu and Barnaby’s unsteady partnership, and the revelation of what really happened on that day 21 years ago when Barnaby’s parents died.

19. There’s no way out.
