Battler didn't have an explanation, but he still wouldn't accept magic as existing. So now Beatrice will show him a reality with (what appears to be) tons of magic to try to stump him.

Just because we (and Battler) are seeing certain things doesn't mean they are what is actually happening. You can decide to be anti-mystery and argue that it is, but Battler's position is that it's all a deception and that he can and will prove that what really took place was done through human, non-supernatural means.

Let's see... end of last episode was all the parents gathered in the chapel, admitting Beatrice was really the witch. The next we see of them, only Rosa's still alive, the rest are settled down for the Halloween Feast...

...Any clues as to what happened in between?

No one actually knows. It is suspicious that Rosa acts as if she hasn't been to the chapel.

One other random thing--it looks like the goat-heads have the one-winged eagle crest on their jackets. Maybe it's Beatrice's crest, and Kinzo just borrowed it?

If there is one key to the chapel, that key was in Maria's bag the whole time, and the six dead, Rosa, and "Beatrice" were all in there around midnight...then is it reasonable to believe that the chapel wasn't locked in the first place, and was still unlocked even what Rosa used the key. Did they try to open the door, or were they going based on "its always locked" plus but red seal and words on the door, logic?

Were the stakes really supposed to be as tall as Beatrice? I always thought they were at least (almost 1 head shorter)

One could argue that all of the heights are off...

Wow, awesome ep. It's weird that the killer's plan has changed drastically. From the shed to the chapel, different set of the first twilight victims, and gut stuffing instead of facial mutilation. Rationally speaking there's gotta be 2 different set of killer(s) from this and the previous realm. Which means Battler from this realm can be the killer now. lol that would be funny. Oh well, can't wait for the next ep.

I AM NOT HAPPY ABOUT PIXELATED BODIES.
I was seriously looking forward to that the most. ): I have been let down.
Also..NO DREAD OF GRAVE, as has been said is synonymous with FAIL
I'm really upset with this episode over all ):

The episode itself was ok.. But I'm starting to think ( well its just been two episodes) that this entire show will be worth it just for watching Beatrice and Battler duke it out.

She has a much better evil laugh than I had hoped for. I'd originally wanted Tanaka Rie for Beatrice because I know she can do deliciously evil laughs. But Beatrice is fine as it.

Uhm it's strange, after I've finally seen this episode and after having good expectations for it, I've found myself being totally unimpressed.

I dunno if it is right because I've waiting for this episode and therefore I had high expectations, or because it was really below average, anyway everything really felt strange to me.

While the restyle of the goats was very good (they are actually scary now), the battle was kinda anticlimatic. And as for the stake battle, the sudden move of Jessica seemed out of pace. That scene was supposed to be felt like Kanon was going to die and Jessica protecting him should have been a surprise. However the pace didn't even give the time for that.

The discovery of the corpses wasn't particularly emotional. With such a scene in front of their eyes I would expect more screams.

Also Beatrice and Battler first exchange of theories and counterargument was devoid of any epicness. In comparison the battle of logic between Maria and Battler in ep3 was a lot better.

Asmodeus voice really reminds Yui! I can't help but seeing Yui in Asmodeus now. Satan was okay though.

Now I left at the end the thing that disappointed me the most. They have totally skipped the inscription in front of the chapel. I can't believe no one mentioned this. Come on, it is an important hint! How could they overlook it?

At this point I really think that trying to solve the mysteries of this story with just the informations given by the anime comes with a very big handicap.

What "Happy Halloween for Maria" that was there, it was mentioned.

And you know you want stake Yui to try to play Kanon like a guitar.
