As the pentultimate episode of Iron-Blooded Orphans comes to a close and we stare into the abyss that is the ending of this series many things continue to rush through my mind and I assume many of yours. Not the least of which is what is the end game for this series, as at this current junction I honestly have no idea how the series will end. Could this really just be a status quo ending, honestly if Mari is going for a “good” ending what does that entail? As at the moment the best outcome I can foresee is who still lives continues to live may be these best outcome left.
That said this episode does have quite a few things to digest. No less the fact that two named characters passed away this episode. One was a little bit of a surprise while the other was less so. Of course the first death should have been expected as they fit the type of character who tends to die in Iron-Blooded Orphans paired with a major death, expendable but known enough. In many ways this character almost seemed too perfect a kill to make it through, though we shall talk more about him later.
