*Consume*
*Merge*

If it was consuming, the Mysticas wouldn't have been there any more to lose again. And yes, the dolls take on at least each other's abilities(like Suigintou using Souseiseki's scissors), so it is more like merging.

What? So the ending was basically half a reset?

Father is complicated man, it is too simplistic to hate him. Afterall, he did create the Rozen sisters in the first place. We love the dolls but we neglect the purpose of their creation. Perhaps the years of waiting have made him go mad? Perhaps too he is still deciding about real reason for Alice? The anime is vague and so is the ongoing manga.

I think there is more substance to this character that most of us willing to give credit for. Just some musings from me.

Reading from these summaries, I'm not sure what to think of the ending. It sounds very inconclusive and a blatant excuse to make a third season (not that I'm complaining). I'll have to actually see this first before making any more comments.

Actually it is to my opinion that from the ending, I'm thinking there might not be a third season based on something Father told Jun and Shinku at the end.

Of course there's always a possibility of me being wrong....

I personally believe that this was one of the best season enders I have seen to date. Alot of the summeries are based on speculations about what was said even though most of us know little or no Japanese. I had high expectations for this episode, and it exceded all most of my expextations.

P.S. I called it a season ender and not a series ender becuase it does point toward a third season.
