Please tell me this alchemy chick is going to stick around. She's great so far

Houtarou should use his card summon attack more

Oh Hou, you may not care about alchemist politics but you can be a dummy

Ooh second Rider seems cool. Evil Rider to boot

Hmmm, seems cool so far. But I hope it's not just brainwashing. Temptation and corruption is a lot more interesting when the character has actual volition and chioce over their actions. Just being a puppet isn't so interesting

Wait Harima isn't really dead right? She's way too interesting

Is Dread using cards stolen from Houtarou, or using the ones Sabimaru had on his body? Oh they're copies

Klotho, nice! Don't just stand by and watch, join in!

How does Isaac work???

I like that Dread and Gotchard both have mufflers

Yes because that attack worked so well the first time lol. This poor park will have to replace so many benches

Oh right Rinne, you could be fighting too. Also ouch, with to get stigmata's minato

Pretty funny how Spanner has to say Rinne's full name each time. They're so many unhuman things people do that any of them could be candidates for being homunculuses

Oh we have so many happy memories... filmed for the previous episode

lol Atropos

Man it's such a good desin for a Rider. Probably my favorite for this series so far

Why a sword? The sword looks like a prototype, why isn't it painted? X? X for excalibur?

More installed memories. Interesting? Worrysome?

so that evil looking inquisitor was probably a good g uy this whole time? Casting Isaka from Blade is a good misdirect then

Oh man, I really hope Harima isn't gone gone

But yeah, that was a pretty good Gotchard episode. Maybe best so far? Not only did none of the characters needlessly annoy me, but it seemed like some of the actors were bringing their A game. /me looks up name. Renge was really good in this as well as Spanner's actor. Hmm, they really don't say Renge's name a lot huh?

ok, was NOT expecting that to be who would use the evil driver. this has potential to be very interesting.

I wish I could find it again, but I saw a really interesting post last week where someone talked about muffler colors back in Showa series, where, iirc, Red = Burning Passion, White = Pure Heart/Desire for Justice, Yellow = Evil Riders. they noted that Toei's almost assuredly moved on from all that, so the color of the muffler is irrelevant, but if it IS deliberate, it's interesting that Dread's is also white.
Why a sword? The sword looks like a prototype, why isn't it painted? X? X for excalibur?
seems to be pulling double duty as both an "excalibur" reference, since the sword's name is X Gotchalibur, and the roman numeral for 10, since the sword was given to him by UFO X, and all the level 10s released irl so far have X in the name for that same reason.
Hmm, they really don't say Renge's name a lot huh?
now that you mention it, I don't think they have. huh.

here's a question related to the preview for next episode:
Spoiler
considering next week seems to be getting the first time Gotchard uses the new sword to use a Level 10 chemy for a form, and it's UFO X, why is it that the toy of the sword comes with the X Rex card, and UFO X is the special "buy the toy early, while supplies last" promo, and not the other way around?

That was honestly well executed. The plot structure's sort of a standard darker good-guys-lose episode, but the execution makes it memorable. The candidate for Dread was an interesting surprise; there were also a couple scenes--like Dread barely stopping himself and Gotchard receiving a weapon ex machina--that could have ended the Dread arc, but I'm glad they want to stretch this a bit further.

The side characters are ultimately pretty useless, but I like some of the little moments like Renge reaching out to Dread and the different alchemists' reactions to the different sisters. Spanner really hasn't changed at a bit since first bullying Ichinose; I'm glad they remember that, but he's going to need an active (fall and?) redemption arc for me to like him. I appreciate Minato getting stigmata. He'll most likely be fine next episode, but I'm hoping he'll get a cast or something for a short while, because that isn't just something you walk away from.

Incidentally, when was the last time we got a second Rider this late in? Spanner debatably counts, but we've had Showa characters like Shadowmoon who resemble riders but aren't called that, so I'm thinking of him as one of those

Does anyone else think that the inquisitor guy has to be the boss of the three Hades Sisters?

* How can you not notice that your assistant has stigmata?

* If he is a powerful Alchemist then why doesn't he help out in the fight instead just just chilling from a far and scouting Houtarou's ability?

* Baby Hades keeps mentioning a boss, so at this point it's either going to be Rinne's Dad or the inquisitor guy.

I guess I am truly a horrible tokusatsu fan since I was rooting for the cool and stylish Hades Sisters to curb stomp the main characters for being lame and annoying (but let Renge go since she is cool).

My bet is on evil boss man being Houtarou's dad

Correct. I also think that the investigator is the boss of the three Hades sisters. Many details suggest that is very likely.

I believe the last series to wait so long without a new rider was Fourze, which didn't give us Meteor until the late teens. Every series between then and now has had at least 2 riders in the first 10 episodes.

Beast didn't show up in Wizard until episode 17, Mach was in 12 for Drive, and Cross-Z was episode 11 for Build.

Fair point about Build, I should've said first quarter. As for the other 2, though, we had already gotten White Wizard and Protodrive by this point.
