First of all... everything in this episode involving Saber and that bike... simply glorious. I lack the proper words to describe just how incredible it was.

I find it interesting how Rider just outright refuses to use his reality marble against Saber. I wonder what the exact reason is.

As for Kariya... well, let's just say I spent most of the church scene shouting "No, Kariya! No!" at the screen.
I feel like I should be angry at him, but I only feel pity and sadness. Don't think he should've really snapped there, but then again, emotional outbursts and insanity aren't really things that one can control.

Next episode title is so damn ominous. I mean, just by itself, it already sounds bad. But to people familiar with Fate/Stay Night, those words should be all too familiar. Can't wait to see what horrible things happen. (Oh god, I'm starting to sound like Kirei)

In episode 20, Rider said that he could only use Ioniai Hetairo only one more time and that it should be saved for Archer.

Being Fate/Zero's character is suffering (unless you are Gilgamesh or Kotomine Kirei).

Well, true. But in the situation he and Waver were in, I don't think saving it for Archer would've done them any good, had Saber not simply left them there. If she had continued the fight, there isn't much he would've been able to do against Saber, don't you think?

the best part about the Urobuchi tragedy, everything just flows on so natural and you can't help but to start silently at how everything just crumbles down by itself.

so yeah, hopefully after this ep no one will ask "why didn't Kariya just go kill Zouken?"

I recall in the LN, the Rider v Saber fight was a split-second difference. In this episode it didn't look that close to me.

But minor point aside, this is yet another superb episode even by F/Z's high standard. Saber on bike ^_^

It doesn't matter since that's not what happened. It would still be a bad move to use it since Rider would have nothing left to fight Archer. Either way Rider lost one of his NP, but at least he didn't waste his strongest NP yet so he is not out of this war yet.

it's either gamble and win, or go out second place.

don't think Rider would like to settle for a second.

It seems like they were really hammering in the rape imagery and metaphors, with Kariya's feelings for Aoi. He straddled her.

Well, he would've been potentially out of the war had Saber defeated him there and then.
But you're right, Saber didn't continue the fight, so there was no need to waste Ionian Hetairoi. It's possible, had he been forced into a corner, he would have no other choice, but that's useless speculation, as you've said.

The "race" between Saber and Rider was simply superb!! That darn bike's too lucky.

Kariya, Kariya..............I wasn't expecting Aoi to be there. Although I don't like it but I will agree that her seeing him "kill" Tokiomi was the the second best method to inflict as much pain and misery on Kariya Too bad for you Kariya that the second most cunning person in the show planned this.

Don't ask me what the best method was, ask Zouken. (although it must be pretty obvious)

As I mentioned with the imagery, I really think it was.
