It is hard to believe this drama is coming to an end soon, and this episode does not help as it does not really feel like the kind of episode one would expect to be the second to last episode in a drama.
Tatsuya of course would rather just throw down with them but Shohei reminds him about the trouble Tetsuya got into so he lets it go for now.
I think I found this episode the most uncomfortable to watch, because crimes against women is just too frequent in about any culture. And while Saya is lucky enough to have people come to her aid there are so many girls and women who are not that lucky. So I am rather disappointed that this kind of situation was just used to make Saya be the damsel in distress that falls in love with her savior. Especially since they had such a solid episode about suicide only two episodes ago. But one not so good episode after five good ones and one excellent one is not a bad track record for a drama to have.
I really wonder if this series is just going to be eight episodes after all. I know they are done filming the drama as the girls have made blog posts about it so they cannot be adding anymore to it anymore. Though I guess they could have seen how well the first few episodes did and maybe expanded it to be nine episodes at best. I just cannot see the series ending in a satisfying way with a half hour episode. Unless that episode is longer than the rest or something. So I hope next week will not be the end of this series yet, and I still lament that this was not a drama with hour episodes instead.
