I hope there's something cool to occur this ep.

That's the speculation I agree with the most. It's more likely that we may be shown things that will make Sayaka regret her wish.

But... but... people were predicting Sayaka would die! This doesn't fit the narrative!

Why do I have this strange inkling that this poke is directed at me? :P

This was my last prediction.

From what I've heard so far we're still fully on track. Though the progress might be a trace slower than expected.

Very character/plot centered episode.

Red is more or less what we expected and Madoka continues to be Shinji-like

I actually like the fact this episode went against most our expectations. There's nothing as boring as a predictable story.

Not really. Your predicitons about this episode were dead wrong. But hey, you weren't the only one who got it wrong.

That congratulation scene for Kamijo felt so off. I half-expected him not being able to play anymore despite the fact his hand was healed, but nope, everything went fine. He even turned back to being a decent guy now that he's not suffering anymore.

What Kyubey said in this episode gives more credance to the time travel/multiple world theory in my opinion. Kyubey stated he doesn't know who Homura is. Kyouko says that if she's here, then she's got to be contracted to him, but Kyubey replies that he can't tell whether or not that's the case (if she made a contract with him in the future, then it would explain why he has no recollection of it). He has no clear idea where she got her magical powers. He describes her as an irregularity whose actions are impossible to predict even for him. She's the wild card of the story.

Haven't watched the episode yet but yeah I agree on this one. I seriously want Madoka to go beyond everyone's expectations.

Puzzles me a bit why you would say so. The story developed slower than expected, but after watching it (with my poor Japanese), I see no reason to alter the plotted path. I wrote:

In other words, Key Board was right. In this episode, the "positive" aspect of the contract was built up, and that required an extension of time. If you want to point out that I should have stretched the timeline even more, you'd be right - but "dead wrong" is dead wrong.

Exactly what happened. Kyoko stepped on Sayaka's toes, provoked her massively and gave her a smackdown. And just as expected, Sayaka didn't cower or retreat, but fought back. Almost cost her her life, had Homura not intervened.

Well, as I said, the story moved slower than I expected due to the extended first half, but at the moment - after watching 5 raw - I see no reason why I should alter this outline. I still think that in ep6, she will begin her descent. I still think that Kamijo will dump her, and all the rest. Maybe this will change with a sub, but at the moment - not so.
