Will we learn the secret of the mysterious Black Illya?
What They Say:
Episode 3: “Normal Life Breaker”
Content: (please note that content portions of a review may contain spoilers)
Looks like Rin has a serious interrogation of “Black” Illya in mind. The subject herself says her name is Illyasviel von Einzbern…but we already know who is the real Illya. When pressed for “what” this Dark Illya really is, she refuses to tell, since it would be a “spoiler” at this point. So, no answers just yet, other than the cliched plot point that this double wants to kill and replace the true Illya. Rin, however, is not just going to allow this “Dark” one to go around trying to kill our cute little heroine, so she takes some countermeasures: she places a blood curse of some sort on the “Dark” Illya. While Dark Illya can feel pain and suffer on her own as much as possible, the slightest pain or suffering received by Illya will be acutely felt by her dark double. Oh, and death too.
