I guess I’m quite disappointed with Satoshi’s intentions for this arc. Well, I initially didn’t want to believe it but I guess he really is jealous of Houtarou’s ability to solve “mystery” on his own, or rather, to connect facts and information so that one may derive a solution.
Does this mean that his statement during the earlier episodes where he sees himself as a database only an excuse to hide his jealousy and his inability to land a more dynamic role in the solution of a mystery? I personally think that there are only some things that Satoshi can do and being a database is one of his defining qualities.
But asking for something he isn’t capable of feels a bit too much. I wonder what his motivation is? Did he regret seeing Houtarou being capable of doing such feats yet wasting the opportunity to bask in the limelight?
I still hold a grudge against Ibara (and Satoshi actually) ever since that OVA but I think the humiliation she received in this episode felt too much. Well, she deserved retribution for acting high and mighty with Oreki but seeing how she hardly stands up during the incidents incites a mix of pity and frustration.
Where the fuck was that stuck up bitch who was patronizing Oreki during the OVA? WHERE IS SHE?!
Man, Oreki should’ve said to her what she said to him back then, going along the lines of “seeing you like this is annoying”. GOD DAMMIT! Y U NO FIGHT ANYMORE IBARA?!
Tsk, guess all she can do is bully Oreki and be a wuss with everybody else.
