Animenewsnetwork - This week's episode of The Heroic Legend of Arslan finally wraps up the Gadevi vs. Rajendra plotline, and not a moment too soon. While individual players in that story had potential, it was ultimately a tumor encroaching on the whole show. It didn't introduce anything new to the thematic mix of the series. It just stalled out Arslan's return to Pars unnecessarily, and took screentime away from political power plays between the Lusitanians themselves. Either of those would be better than this.
