So Hendricksen had something like that still up his sleeve, what a crafty fellow he is. To awaken the demon blood within the New Generation Holy Knights and force that blood to transform the bodies of the host into creatures one would expect to reside within nightmares. Hendricksen even utilised the obsession Vivian had for Gilthunder to his advantage in order to immobilize Melodias and acquire Elizabeth. It should be interesting to see what happens with Hendricksen at the conclusion of this arc and whether all the work he has put into reviving the Demon Clan amounts to anything at the end because there is that unnerving feeling hanging in the air that the Demon Clan is about to become a serious threat within the story soon.
Of course, he couldn’t have died so easily, Hendricksen definitely had something else up his sleeve that no one else knew about, except for him. But to think that he had demon powers like Melodias, what a surprise, unless he only recently acquired it while his body laid dying. Whatever the case, Hendricksen is back and he is about to usher in some massive changes into the story, possible changes involving Hell and Demons.
What a turn of events, I was completely wrong about Gilthunder’s perception concerning the conspiracy that had taken place within the Kingdom of Liones. I had thought Gilthunder was just being pulled along by his foolishness and ignorance, yet that was shockingly incorrect, more than any other Holy Knight, Gilthunder knew what was going on within the Kingdom. Forced to follow along with Hendricksen’s plot to create an era requiring the Holy Knights, he not only fooled the Holy Knights but the readers as well. My perception of Gilthunder has drastically altered after this twist, to be able to endure the burning desire for revenge for ten years and follow the orders of the man responsible for his father’s death, what patience and resolve Gilthunder.
I was hoping Elizabeth would be able to escape on her own, but I suppose when your opponent is able to teleport, it does make it kind of hard to stay away from them. With the ritual to resurrect the Demon Clan about to take place and with Elizabeth on the verge of being sacrificed, the climax of the arc really is shaping up to be an extremely thrilling one. Will King and Co. make it in time to save Elizabeth, will Melodias and Arthur defeat Hendricksen and Gilthunder, and will Ban really lose his life? And what about Margaret, what choice will she make now that freedom is laid out before her?
