+1 Its become parody of itself. Lots of winking at the camera to telegraph their knowing something has changed, don't take it too seriously anymore 'cause they certainly aren't. Stupid things occurring right and left... The "King", (or anyone else for that matter) didn't notice the Jester materializing and dematerializing right before their eyes. People can now suddenly instantaneously transport to wherever the plot requires them to be... Arte calls Claudia at the Inn from the warehouse then cut scene and she and Clair are at the warehouse. Micha should have torn the place apart while they were in transport but she conveniently reins in her wrath to give them time to arrive. Rules concerning the artifacts are totally out the window... Simply putting Claire back into a coma causes the artifact effect to magically transfer from Micha back into her.
