He didn't underestimate the risk of VR. He underestimated how much of a psychopath Sugou is.

I find that it's an interesting contrast.
Yup, that contrast is a good way of summing up the difference between these two personalities. Sugou is really easy to understand because he's all about power and control. Kayaba almost had a twisted sense of justice about him. In a sense you could say they're both two very different visions of what "god" could be like.

This is quite possible -- I've seen games that have done this, because otherwise players wouldn't necessarily get the chance to see the world at all different times of the day. So it's quite probable that the game operates on its own time and clock, or may just have some sort of day-night cycle that's completely unrelated to real life. (Or I suppose it's also possible that different parts of the game world could be in different "time zones" too.)

Hmm, Lyfa (zomg Suguha!) says that no race can fly for an extended period of time or at certain altitudes, but then...who took the picture of Asuna's cage that Agil showed to Kirito? Curious...

Sugou is hideous...but he is also Oberon. Maybe he did all this so as to find Kirito in-game and mentally wreck him once he reaches the top of the world tree, in addition to making Asuna his loyal "wife"?

I wonder if Lyfa is going to tell Kirito who she is or that she knows him...though usually this is saved for dramatic disclosure moments.

The answer is in episode 16. Did you skip the first half of that episode?

She doesn't have any idea who he is, though (hence the "Kirito-kun's a weird guy" comment on her bed). She may figure it out at some point, but at this time she'd dismiss anything as an odd coincidence because she doesn't know that Kazuto is playing any games, let alone ALO, and both appearance and voice have no necessary correlation.

Iunno, it seemed to me that she knew, based on how she looked at him when he said he wanted to go there...and she knows of Asuna's case, so with Kirito's comment, maybe she figured the latter is trapped in ALO somewhere.

That's quite a leap.

Not really sure... She might have just felt a little jealous of the "girlfriend" Kirito is trying to save... She is obvious fallen for him at once.. You could see her actions on her bed.. she's definitely in love...

Kirito only told Lyfa that he was looking for 'someone' not that it was his girlfriend.

Lyfa did get a hint earlier though with Yui claiming only Mom may hug Papa. But I don't think she took the little pixie seriously.

My mistake I kinda rumbled my mind... it was boyfriend... you know, Lyfa's friend.. Kirito thought they were lovers...

Hmm Lyfa doesn't know who is Kirito is bit bothering me. here is my point:

1. Kirito is the one who duel Heatcliff and then freed other players from SAO.
2. He should be famous in real life, being a hero that save thousand of life, even Asuna's father and Sugou know him. Suguha should hear the news about Kirito.
3. Then she meet a character in ALO whose name Kirito, she should at least have a hint about who is Kirito.

I can't remember if it was mentioned in the last two episodes, but they don't reveal the real names of the players to the public.

Nobody outside of the few SAO players know who he is and his exploits were never publicized.

So 'Kirito' is not the great hero in the eyes of the people that you think he is.

That's one of the many obvious secrets that kept the story going...

As in, the guys who own and operate the SAO server. Of course they have access to information that isn't released to the public. They said as much. So, no, Suguha's never heard of "Kirito" before.

OK, Kayaba was on hiding this whole two years and nobody (even the government) was able to locate him. So it's impossible to follow default route.

But, If you were Kayaba Akihiko, the creator of the death game SAO that was trapped ten thousand people in that game. Declared that will release all of them once the game is cleared. Found out that there are 300 people still trapped although the game is already cleared. What will you do?

Find who do this. That's what I'll do. But It'll difficult to work alone, given that my status as the most wanted person in this country. So, I'll call someone that I can trust, someone that close to me, if any. So, the best bet for Kirito for finding Kayaba Akihiko is find someone that close to him. Or, maybe Kayaba will call Kirito himself since he know that Asuna is listed in the still-trapped-in-SAO list. They will work together to help the still-trapped-in-SAO peoples.

But, *ugh* that will happen if Kayaba isn't the person that behind Sugou's plan (is he?). Judging from this episode and the last arc of SAO alone, I though that Kayaba is not into this.

Or.... is Kayaba dead already? is Kayaba care all of this? Hell, we don't know. Hope he will come soon, as protagoinst, not the villain/Sugou supporter.

Meanwhile, Kirito must have try all possible routes to free Asuna. I noted it here:
  1. Go to the top of the World Tree in ALO.
  2. Find Kayaba Akihiko in his hiding (or find someone that close to him).
  3. Investigate RECTO/RCT, company that took over Argus after it went bankrupt, that coincidentally (or not) also the creator of ALfheim Online.

OK, sorry for blabbering... As I concluded from the previous and this episodes, he maybe will just take option 1 above. We know that Kirito is hero outside, but a gamer inside. Let the other two options handled by the goverment.
