Killua’s taking of Alluka in the previous episode for his goal of helping Gon is definitely something that’s been a high point lately since it takes us back to the kind of cunning and rules that can be manipulated in a fun way. It also showed us more of who Killua is in a way, something that often comes up when we end up back in the vicinity of family, and it definitely made an impression on his father as he saw how masterfully his son used the rules and situation to get what he wanted. Right or wrong doesn’t really enter into it here because this family of assassins has its own rules and seeing them work it has its rewards. But now Killua also has to face the risks in a clearer way since he’s managed to make his move successfully.
