(Spoilers in this review)
The series opts to continue right after where episode left off. As a result, we get to learn that “Ange” and “Charlotte” made some sort of promise (that Princess is intent on keeping by becoming Queen), that Ange had wanted to run away with Princess after being reunited with her, and that Ange resolves to help Princess succeed by becoming a chronic liar.
We also get to see Beatrice in action! For those of you who were observant, you would have notice she seemed to have some sort of device at her throat that allows her to mimic voices. Turns out her father was a mad scientist who enabled that to happen to the poor girl. Despite her misgivings towards spies, Beatrice saw that Ange really does care for Princess and was able to use the device to fool people for the first time.
Not every episode has to be thrillers and twists. Sometimes a series needs episodes that serve to flesh out characters. Nothing wrong with slow burners, either – the series knows the viewers are patient enough to wait for the action and that we’re curious enough to want to know how the girls got together as “friends.”
On a closing note, I wonder how Beatrice knew how the Major sounds like – she had never heard him speak. And I wonder where Ange is going to get a replacement for the Cavonite that she overused to the point of breaking.
