well it wasnt as good as the other episodes, i think it went by to quickly, the comedy should have been more on the introducing of saber than the rin trying to kill shirou,

yay sexy rider!

7 it is

Methinks she's missing on purpose, and probably for the same reason why she saved/helped him in the first place. I know it's going to come in full force in the future, but I'm glad to see that Rin's internal dilemma is rearing its ugly head even now so that it's properly foreshadowed.
It wasn't because Rin wasn't serious enough nor she was missing on purpose, but it was because that scene itself was not completely earnest. The way the characters act (see especially Shirou's facial expressions), the tone of the voices, the jokes they were putting in, all hinted at me that Rin-vs-Shirou part was a bit more comical than it seems. But it was conflicting to be amused against the grave background music that was playing the whole way through, thus that segment was an awkward mix of humor and seriousness.

Awkward will be an understatement. I would say it is jarring and painful disjointment.

I think she was trying to rid him of his naivity. She could have taken him by suprise or gotten Archer to do the job for her. I liked the stairwell bit, it was quite funny(ish). Well, with what Shirou said to Rin after she jumped. If you were really going to die, you'd still be running If I were in his place, I would have caught Rin, put her down and then legged it (even if she seemed to be going in for the kill). But that's me.

Not a bad episode, though I personally did not like the comedy part all that much.

Yeah that last part was meh. It just didn't feel right, but the Saber scenes balanced it out.

Actually, the anime captured that "half-joke half-serious" atmosphere well. The scene wasn't all that serious in the game to begin with (what with real gun sound effects and all), so at least I can say that the anime "faithfully reproduced" the atmosphere from the game.

It'll get serious soon enough, don't worry.

...That's one hell of a spoiler, you know. Better put a warning right before it.

Yes, the servant is free to leave or kill the master after the three seals are gone. Also the servant can continue following the master's orders out of loyalty. They can pretty much do whatever the hell they want. I would think it would be in their best interest to form a contract with another/the same master though - they still need a constant flow of mana to stay in the world, besides

Spoiler:
.

IIRC A servant can be particularly disobedient or even harmful to their master even while they still have their command seals - "Servants" are more of partners in seeking the Grail than actual underlings.

Sort of like a "Ministra Magi" in Negima, but no kiss?

Ok my take on this episode.. Rin was trying to protect Shirou for if he is not going to take the war seriously she will remove him from the battle.. thereby protecting him. She said it herself that it would not kill him but would definitely put him out of commission. Now Shirou is naive and doesn't want to consider her an enemy and tries to joke about seeing under her skirt, ect to get her out of her attacking mood.. of course that just got her blood a boiling.. he's not very smart when it comes to woman it seems.

Still, I find she's not serious enough yet. Considering her experience with magic, I don't think she would've missed Shirou after so many tries if she really wanted to hit him.

I found Rin's attempts to 'kill' Shirou to be very halfhearted indeed in this episode. This was brought out especially by her conversation with Archer on the rooftops, when he asked what she'd do when she saw Emiya next. Her response, especially in how she made it, sounds like she was trying to convice both herself and Archer. She seems rather defensive towards Archer, regardiing her intentions towards Shirou.

The encounter she did have with Shirou (both passing him in the corridor and then the Fight Scene™) reinforced this to me - she was trying to prove to herself (or perhaps to Archer) that she could kill, or at least attack, Shirou. She wasn't seriously trying to kill him, if she was she'd have done so rather easily. She was more trying to force herself to believe that she could kill him. And by the way her face was acting during the battle, and her voice, as well as how she responded to Archer - sorry dearheart, you'll have to try better than that to convince me you're serious.

Still. Fun episode. About a 7.5 - more a 7 than an 8 for me (on one watch through) so that's what it gets. I think the distorted animation of the 'stair jumping', amusing as it was situationally, did lose something there for me. I know the scene was being a tad silly, but, enough is sometimes too much.
