As far as it is shown, there isn't any clear explanation how WN manifests itself prior the fated day. How Homura is supposed to do anything without data?

The primary objective is to save Madoka, as she is the very center of everything. Should Homura go on WN hunting (which would definitely lead to BIG failure), QB has a field day with Madoka, as nothing would prevent him to mindfuck her while Homura is absent.

Also kidnapping Madoka doesn't fix the problem AT ALL.
It would leave the whole WN issue etc. It is quite unrealistic to expect her to go on such extreme and just displacing the problem elsewhere.

Ignorance is bliss. Has anyone noticed how the first iteration was also the ending you expected for a dark magical girl show? None of the girls knew anything that was happening and lived life as a normal magical girl with some dark themes.

Now as the truth get's slowly revealed, each iteration after that - the ending get worse and worse until we get to the current episode.

She can't. Her wish is explicit. She wished for the following
"I want to return to the time we met. I don't want to be the one protected by her, i want to protect her instead."

Her wish fixes her time reboot to the 16th. No other dates are allowed. She cannot even travel to the 16th as she wishes. She has to fail in her mission of becoming Madoka's protector first

How much energy is this wish costing Kyuube? This repeated time travel experiment looks like it is using a whole lot more energy than wishing for cake, somebody to be healed, or even saving a single human life.

That time travel device looks pretty alien. This might be the first wish where Kyuube actually gave somebody some their race's technology in order to fulfill a wish.

The MG system is not clear yet ....maybe each girl has its own MG power but it's "sealed" and QB knows how to trigger it.

I love this anime. I truly do. Homu at first was a completely different person from the Homu we know. Poor Homu going back in time again and again and always failing. (;_; ) Weird episode anyway, felt a bit rushed. But there are only TWO EPISODES until the end so it's reasonable.

I have a bad feeling this anime may end with Homu going back in time to stop Madoka from becoming a Mahou Shoujo again. And again. And again. *shudders*

Highly doubt that since that would be pointless. This loop will probably end in the last episode and the only way it will end is either Homura is satisfied with the results or Homura dies.

Or we'll continue with Oriko Magica?

What if they just leave the city and let mega ultra witch devastate it; maybe some one else wants to sacrifice themselves? That'd be so selfish, I'd just lol at that possibility.

The black cat is bugging me. All the MGs are part of the last OP scenery this time, and the cat is also there. I figure looking at the explicit change there's perhaps some kind of significance to it. Or not.

Homura's next episode key line proposes there's one final way. We're also adviced to rewatch episode 1 again before proceeding with episode 11, I'm dying to find out why or if it's just to gather the puzzle easier.

Madoka will have two different key lines, I assume they aren't said in a row. One supports that Madoka will remember certain (or all?) events, and the other one is a criticism towards Homura.

I don't know which sub that was, but she never says to return to the time of anything. She just says she want's to have another go at how she met Madoka--to have a second chance at that first meeting.

Regarding the whole Sayaka becoming a magical girl in timeline 3 isn't it possible that because Homaru doesn't join Modoka, Mami, and Kyuubie from the start like first two timelines Sayaka ends up joining them.

It seems that TBS's broadcast of Madoka is canceled because of earthquake.
Well I guess we may have to wait until things calm down before they can continue.

Madoka's lines in the preview doesn't sound like criticism at all to me with the subs I have. Can you post the lines from the subs you have. Maybe is a different translation.

lol nah prolly because Shinbo wants to satisfy the fans while still delivering substance. Will you be satisfied with an inconclusive ending? I sure won't be and if Magica Quartet really wants to push this show into legendary status they need to come up with a good conclusion that will satisfy majority of the fans.

I'm ruling out a time reset ending and a bad end because of that. I don't even care what happens to the MG system. It can go on for all I care but what I do want is a resolution to Homura and Madoka's plight. I want a little bit of peace and happiness for Homura and Madoka because with all the shit they've gone through they deserve it.

A fairly good episode and I consider everything (in the ep) going the most anticipated way while rushing with revelations is the best way to prepare viewers for a glorius unexpected finale =) Alas, the quake will probably suspend the process for a week

Before, I considered Madoka Magica to be a very good anime.
With this episode, I will call it nothing less than legendary.
