In the words of Studio Deen's Emiya "People die if they are killed!'. But, do they really?
Quick Recap of what's been going on in the last two episodes
* Rin's been kidnapped by Archer
*Emiya and Saber teams up with Lancer to save Rin
*Lancer shows up to save Rin from being almost raped by Shinji
*Guess who isn't dead Kirei(priest dude) and shows up and tell Rin he was the one who killed her father(back when Fate/zero was airing) and this pisses Rin off.
*Kirei orders Lancer to Kill Rin and when Lancer refuses he then orders Lancer to Kill himself
SO bring us up to this week episode Emiya is still fighting Archer with his makeshift sword as Saber has been force to watch for the pass two episode. We learn that Archer is really Emiya heroic ideals in physical manifestation(to put it simply he him but as a Heroic spirit like Saber) that is why current Emiya is able to copy his swords so easily, Rin was able to summon him as a guardian and other events revolving Archer took place. Even though Archer clearly had the upper hand he was somewhat at a disadvantage because he was slowly loosing mana due to the fact that Rin was no longer his master and his suppler and was clearly bout to run empty and disappear. We go back to the basement where Rin, Shinji and Kirei are and Lancer is still on the floor bleeding out. Kirei taunts Rin some more before what we assumed was a dead Lancer gets up and Stabs Kirei.
Lancer fucks with Shinji a bit by shanking him in his shoulder before finally collapsing due to blood loss. He sets Rin free and they chat it up before Lancer sets the Basement on Fire and Disappearing until the next Holy Grail war.
Now back to Emiya and Archer, Archer even though he had the upper hand and Emiya was already at his limit decided to use his noble phantasm which is Unlimited Blade works and transport him, Emiya and Saber to that barren timeless wasteland with 10001 swords.
After Tracing on so much Emiya reaches his limit allowing Archer to land the what seem to be fatal blow. A bleeding out Emiya begins to reminisce on why he wanted to become a Hero of Justice
To conclude this review in case you miss this jem in this episode i ask you this. Studio Deen's Emiya said "People die if they are killed!" what did Ufotable Emiya say?
