That's true. Besides since when has being talented required a reason? Some people just have their talents and in this case Madoka's is magic.

This episode made me put this show as my favourite series this season.
It's creepy how blunt Mami's death was and the indifference Kyubei showed towards her death.

Guess there was a reason why they put off the ED until this episode.

Just watched eps 3...
Didn't see it coming...

Damn you Urobochi...
All the speculation about Mami is off mark...

Either wise, it was a great episode...

Uha...........
That was just... shocking... And I thought that girl was suspicious too... And the gruesomeness...

It turns out that Q-be was the mastermind behind everything...
Well, not "100%" yet, but the animation and everything was clearly screaming "KEIKAKU DOOOOORIIIII!"
And the ED suddenly went dark... Mami's silhouette... Some bad storms coming through, it looks.

But it'd suck if now Madoka becomes a Mahou Shoujo and wish to revive Mami and she really does revive...
Someone needs to kill that Q-be... I remember that photoshop of him talking to Saya no Uta...

Wonder if there will be a new OP next time...

Well... there's still that off chance that this was all part of the plan, but given that we're emotionally attached to mami's death... I'd rather not go with the notion.

I have only one speculation to offer so far: Mami actually wanted Madoka to wish for a cake. I get the feeling that your wishes can come out different than you expect, or big wishes can end up leading to unexpected and unpleasant consequences. Even if it doesn't follow the staple setup of wishes being granted too literally or twisted in some way, most significant wishes will have a major impact on things. For instance, if her wish gave her mother a major promotion, that could turn her mother's life upside down. This is probably also one part of why Homura doesn't want Madoka to become a Puella Magi.

Another possible reason would be "equal exchange". In other words, a big wish could result in major costs. This would be something that Mami would be in a position to know very well, since her wish was very large:
Spoiler:



Either way, I expect if this is the case it will soon be very apparent when the two make their wishes. In the current situation, I doubt they'd be able to think of anything "small".

just watched ep3 and like most people i didn't see that one coming. I kind of hate she died. I liked her way of fighting(guns)

I expect Modoka to wish for Mami revival and finally transform next episode.

Well the title of the next episode is "both miracles and magic exist" though I'm not sure i'd trust things like episode titles at this point.

The title of the episodes so far is the line someone speaks in that episode...
So judging from title of episode 4... Yeah, either Sayaka or Madoka makes contract with evil Kyuubei...

Didn't expect this so soon. I underestimated Urobuchi, granted I haven't seen much of his stuff. Great episode and all the foreshadowing has me really excited about where this story will go. The witch this time was pretty frightening, especially compared to last weeks. Seems Madoka now has a pretty easy decision for her wish, but will it be possible to bring back the dead? I'm not a fan of this idea as it would feel cheap.. Hopefully we'll get to learn something about the limitations of a wish.

Homura could try killing him again. Nothing is stopping her now.

The third episode was really good. I didn't see things heading this way.

Besides the fact that Kyuubey sleeps next to Madoka's head?

Homura will either have to be the world's greatest stalker/ninja, or she's going to risk brutally murdering a little animal in Madoka's face, which she obviously does not wish to do.

I'm really kind of frustrated that Homura doesn't come out and say "Kyubey is evil" or otherwise explain herself, honestly. I think maybe she's actually a really awkward person who's trying to do some good but has communication problems... she really ought to step up to the plate there, though.

Makes you wonder if there's some kind of silence clause, too.

But that only makes her more lovable

Having your favourite character killed in ep 3 is really shocking. Cant really decide to watch this ep at all......

In the ED we have in order: Sayaka, the red-haired girl, Mami and Homura.... the red haired girl does it means she also is a magic girl? The ED gives hints.

She could be a true antagonist for all we know.

Maybe even a witch with a human form.

Maybe, maybe not but as for now I'll asume we're going to see with her "what happens when your soul gem" isn't cleansed with enough "Greef Seeds".

Question for the observers:
Is this
Spoiler for Is this....:
