this episode can be really crucial as to determining what kind of tone the series will follow, and how fk up this Urobuchi is willing to take the story.
Depending on what the title means by magic and miracle, I hope to see more interesting character developments. Not to mention that I want to see the red hair girl being introduced.

After all the drama in ep3, this one can make or break the series for me. It can either maintain or even exceed the ambience that has been cooking nicely throughout the past 3 episodes, or totally deflate our overhyped expectations. Fingers crossed.

It does. It's just better for the thread to be created early rather than too late like last week.

This should be an interesting episode. Curious to see whether Madoka and Miki come to grips with what happened and return to their normal selves, or remain horribly traumatized and depressed throughout.

It'll be scary to find out that Kyuube might just be his usual self after what has happened to Mami, seeing how it only looked like another reason to tell Madoka and Sayaka to make a contract with him.

Well, there are witches that need to be destroyed, but it would be sorta cold-hearted of Kyuube to do that. But he probably knows the consequences of the girls becoming magical girls and is probably already used to it? But it will make Madoka and Sayaka incredibly angry at him.

I highly doubt Urobuchi Gen, one of the writers for Phantom, and the guy who wrote the fate/zero novels(which get an anime this year- yippee) is going to make this an endless series of masochism without a point. So i look forward to episode 4.

Somehow, I think that Kairin actually remembered wrong day.

Title of next ep is basically "No regrets", that emo boy Kamijou is not worth it.

I have been talking over speculah thread about the fallout from the quotations selected within this episode...

"Ich bin jung, ich will nicht arbeiten, ich will leben" is shown by the TV thingy, and it means "I don't want to work now! for I am young! ... I will not work! I will only live, live, live". This is a quotation from John Gabriel Borkman by Henri Ibson.

MRS. BORKMAN.
[With a cry of divination.] Erhart, what will you live for?

ERHART.
[With sparkling eyes.] For happiness, mother!

MRS. BORKMAN.
And where do you think you can find that?

ERHART.
I have found it, already!
