All right, S-Strain ep 5. At this point, I would have some catchy lead into the cut to read the rest of the entry. I honestly can’t think of anything that would do that right now. If anything, just don’t confuse my title for the episode (I put it in the title), with the true name of ep 5 The Infinite Revenge. That one sounds cooler anyway.

A tad bit late

This episode stars with fighting. It is the remaining STRAIN unit now with Sara. As the battle goes on for the short time, Ralph appears and both Lotti and Sara go for him. They end up getting in the way of each other and get killed. Thank god it was a simulation.

The battle gets people thinking, their idea is that they need a new formation to fight STRAINs. Makes enough sense to me. Lotti believes Sara should be moved to the front because she is quite the powerful person, up there with Lotti (even though Lotti hasn’t done all that well in battle).

Then, it moves to the high-up dudes talking about all the important stuff. Like, where they are going so on… The real important part is that they seem to be finding out something is wrong with Sara’s file (which was edited way back in like ep 2).

Scene changes to the locker room where Sara is changing. Then just out of no where, the purple haired STRAIN pilot basically tackle hugs Sara. I’m calling it, yuri couple. Place bets now. Anyway, all the STRAIN pilots are trying to get to know Sara and be nice to her. They are everywhere. In the cafeteria, in the hallway. I do feel sorry for the one guy though, he has no idea whats going on with her. He reminds me of the one guy from the first episode, too. He tells Sara just to ask for anything. She comes back with “why are you doing this?” She doesn’t like this much.

Even later on when Sara is working out and Lotti is there, Lotti tries to get Sara to open up because they are now partners. Doesn’t work though (why it would I dunno). As Sara is leaving, those damn GAMBEE pilots are there to bully her. Again Lotti sees this.

Sara heads back to her room and starts brushing Emily. She says she is the only person she needs blah blah. I swear fetish with the doll. Though she fells she can’t be apart of the time because she is still keeping the secret about who she really is. Then she sees the mechanics brining in the parts and the death hits her hard this time.

Now we are taken back to the enemy side where Ralph’s STRAIN is getting ready for the next attack. The next attack is being planned. Also it shows Ralph and the boss lady making out and stuff…I wonder what the deal with that is.

Back with Sara, she is getting scanned. Nothing is found wrong though. I assume they are trying to figure out why she can sync with the doll. After the scan though she is sent a message. So she heads off and passes the guys in the STRAIN unit, they tell her about how there is a meeting for them, but Sara just walks past.

At the meeting Lotti explains to her the plan and the formation change. Sara is moved up to the front with Lotti. All of that is fine and well, one problem though. Sara isn’t even there.

Sara is in the middle of nowhere, where it is dark and beat up and all of that. She is met by the bullies. She asks where Isabella is because that is who called her. They tell her that Isabella is dead and that is when Sara finds out that. She has a flashback to when the parts were brought in and even before that when her first team was killed in front of her. Then the bullies blame her for Isabella’s death and start beating the shit out of her.

Sara just takes all the hits being silent. Then she finally answers “are you happy now”. This gets the one girl really pissed and she gets a pipe. Just when Sara is about to get hit, the guy comes in and grabs the pipe. Then, the rest of the team comes in. Lotti starts yelling at them saying if they do it again, they’re gonna fight back. The GAMBEE person again tries to blame it on Sara. Lotti interrupts with everybody lost people so on so forth. Then from above the purple hair girl comes in with a rocket launcher. A tad bit late. Then Sara faints and it ends there.

Overall, it was an all right episode. There was a lot of emotional stuff in there. Shows how no one can deal with death. Once again the random humor was there, I don’t think it should be, seems a bit much now. Not the best in the series so far. Next episode looks to be a good one though.
