Gotta love the "rising" tension before each episode. Since I'm good at lowering my expectations, I will just book myself a seat on the far front of the mystic roller coaster.

I will put my bet on sayaka turning witch and hitomi/kamijo turning into a pile of corpse.

EDIT:

Kyubei smirking saying "just as planned'

Urobuchi Gen let us off easy. The fall of Sayaka proves itself incredibly spectacular, but surprisingly what came out is the hole in the dam of Homura's welled up emotions.

This officially ends where Kyubey stands on the matter of the whole conflict. It's an answer episode yet it's visually gorgeous.

@Hypernova: I loled too at 9mm and Flashbang.

Well, this is it. Some theories were utterly crushed, others were finally 100% confirmed.

Yes, I knew it. Sayaka's thing happened early than I expected but, damn, pretty much as I predicted. Homura's revelation too. I just can't believe it, even though I expected it I just can't believe it

Kanon, unfortunately, the argument about definition of evil will continue. The debate will head towards whether or not if ethics of human beings can be applied to that of the likes of eldrich abomination...

leaving that aside. Kyuubee the Incubator is such an enigma. I can't wait to see more of him.

I must say I was grinning during the whole episode considering how the various foreshadowing elements that were given over the previous episodes basically bloomed into reality.

That is to say, it was wrapping a very good atmosphere here and there

Panzerfan: When dealing with Lovecraftian beings, sanity BREAKS DOWN, remember? Also, it's not easy to argue ethics when eldritch beings, depending on how you look at it, don't have any. Remember Saya?

Yeah, it feels kind of weird to be right about pretty much everything, especially since a lot of us started thinking Homura was from the future after the very first episode. That's almost a record. Same goes for the Magical Girl turn into witches theory. They made the hints a little too obvious.

And told you that Homura's power was time stop and not teleportation!

@Myssa_Rei: Yes, painfully so. Although who's the insane one is highly debatable...

4chan Anonymous have been vindicated with Sayaka being a witch. On this, I feel terrible for Homura. I feel a vibe of Hinamizawa recursion of time stronger than ever right now.

You're right, I admit defeat on this point.

But damn, I really need subs to get all the delicious fine details!!!

No, I'm done. The revelations made in this episode make Kyubey indefensible.

Needless to say, I'm pretty disappointed that the anime went in such a predictable direction. However, at least they didn't leave the big reveal for the last episode, so the ending itself might contain a surprise or two.

Here's a good question:

If tainted MG can become witch, can cleansing grief seed turn her back to human?

The problem with such question is: is there actually a way to cleanse it?
To begin with, the problem is that the soul gem literally shattered, leaving only the Grief Seed. Therefore, it is a tad difficult to imagine a restoration, especially Homura insists deep down that once you are a MG, it is over.

I can't wait for the JoJo and Touhou parodies involving Homura. That is just so exploitable.
