Well it was definitely all a set up. It was foreshadowed by Kon saying that since their enemies would never stop following them until they died then they had to settle it once and for all. There's no way that Kon would seriously go head on against his enemy so he was most likely thinking of faking his own death.

I must say I absolutely liked the fact that Kon decided to take the role of the villain and created a series of pointless puzzles/traps for his enemies to go through as the "heroes" of some kind of RPG. A very nice inversion of roles. Who knows maybe Kon played Dungeon Keeper.

I think it was a bit inconsistent the fact that Erec didn't mind killing the princess too. He sees Kon as his archenemy and he thinks he's evil, so I can't blame him for wanting to kill him, but in the first episodes he treated the princess with regard and he was trying to explain why he had to stop her, how come he suddenly doesn't mind killing her?

I wonder what his orders actually are. I guess it's something vague such as "prevent the marriage", which gives him several options.

That's a very strange bit. Does Kon suspect that the pet might be a spy? We know he doesn't like it one bit, but he shouldn't think of him as a threat.
At any rate I doubt that he'll be able to fool Alma Flora, especially because he doesn't even know she's tailing them. And considering that Alma Flora is playing both sides, it won't take much before Erec learns that DT is still alive. Even if he doesn't find the truth by himself.

As for Kon and Princess, I am pretty sure they are faking it.

Spoiler for sigh:
Didn't Mariandale say that Erec had the same smell as him/her?

I wonder what indignity will befall Erec in the future.

He's already lost his balls, and in the closing credits, we get a brief glimpse of
someone with blue hair (Erec?) wearing lipstick.

Hmmm.

Com is never tired about playing dirty trick. Erectile finally learns his lesson. He can withstands other people's dirty trick. Somehow, he is vulnerable against Com's Dirty trick. So, he has his captains on his sides, especially the M captain. He survives the princess' foot play. It's time for Erectile for his revenge, or is it....

i thought ED and gang was trying to capture the princess in eps 1, now he killed her together with Kon...

the chances for both of them really dead is lower than 1%

Gustave and KT interaction are pretty fun, so the part (if not all) of the reason they followed them was because of the hostess clubs?

The preview was quite funny, 'Next episode: Ixion Saga ED'.
It'll probably focus on ED, so I hope Kon will show up at the end of next episode or the one after.

ED can also mean end, next episode is episode 13, marking the end of the season. Or are we getting more?

This pretty much boils down to a simple rule:

If you want to fool your enemies, you have to fool your allies first.

Both of them thought Kon and the Princess were dead.
The Hero party has now split into two teams of two people with the Kon and the Princess going on alone.

This is btw actually exactly what Sainglain hinted at the very beginning: The smaller the group the smaller less likely they are going to get captured.
Also don't forget what Kon said, shortly before he let ED fall down the dungeon:
He doesn't engage in battles he has no chance of winning. - Him and the Princess alone against the entire Antagonist party are not really what I consider 'chance of winning'.
The other thing that should actually strike people odd is how there were bodies to be buried, while the Dinosaur got just vaporized.
So the funeral could be both meant by Mariandale and Sainglain as what it was (a funeral), or a more symbolic act since their journey together has come to an end.

Oh and Did I note that they brought a great focus on the huge mirror when the episode started? Yet it was never used in one of Kon's traps.
And we all know that mirrors can make pretty good traps.

I agree with this. After all, Kon is pragmatic in combat. Just look at his battles with ED.

The only doubt is whether this is true and Marian and Sianglain actually believe Kon and the princess are dead, or that they simply put on a show for those who were watching them.
I'm more prone to believe it's the latter.

As said the meaning of that scene changes depending on their knowledge of the actual situation.

They know:
+ After seing ED's sword against that Monster, the likehood of bodies to bury is very slim
+ They knew they were tailed
+ Burying a princess in some random remote city instead of home?! Wth...
+ Kon said(to the dwerp) that they won't stop till they are dead so they better stand and fight now
+ It was one of them who let ED fall in the room with the dwerp and Kon
- Flashbacks
- Tears
- they knew they were tailed
- Fooling them makes it easier to fool ED
- He actually said those words about stand and fight only to the dwerp
- Only the Princess and he were down that room back then, so it might not have been planned

In case they know the burial and Flashback scenes would be the end of their journey together, rather than them thinking heir life has ended.
Either way its imho too suspicious that the mirror was not used after all while the starting sequence brought a pretty huge focus on it.
Tbh I expected it to be used to reflect the energy beam but yeah - kon could have done the Batman on ED and used it to hide his true hiding place.

Oh my god, this episode. xDDD Nothing really happened, but I was literally lol'ing throughout. Gustave and KT make a surprisingly great pair, they should do missions together more often. (Also, aaaaah, Suzumura Kenichi. xDDD) So next time it's an Erec episode again, huh? Not that I mind.

I do wonder what's up with Kon and the princess, though. No way they're dead.

Also, Pet made new sounds this week, too! I should make a list... (poor Hosoya Yoshimasa, though. XDDD )

they could have snucked to their destination, leaving the other two as decoys.

Their "death" at a trap dungeon (of their own design) is rather suspicious to begin with.

Now that DT is no more, the official site has changed to reflect the upcoming Ixion Saga ED. Oh God I can't not repeat how much love this show.

Some fridge logic: if you look closely, you'd see that the Pet was on Ecarlate's head, right there in the middle of impact that completely obliterated them.

So, how did he survive?
