Saber 26: Man, this show that started out feeling light and silly has gotten darker and darker. Not unusual for Kamen Rider, but the contrast seems greater than usual. Things got really somber this week. Kento is back from the dead, but he was tortured in the underworld with visions of the world being destroyed in countless possible futures, save the one in which he seals all the swords. So much for the happy reunion. Touma still hopes he can convince his friend to reconcile, but basically accomplishes nothing. Oh, so grim and solemn. We finally see Master Logos's face as he confronts Tassel, who apparently originally went by Viktor, and is the assigned protector of Wonder World as M.L. is for the human world. Except that M.L. turns out to be the traitor and the archvillain, rejecting his predecessor's responsibility to protect Earth and planning to use the power of the ultimate book to remake the world in his image. So the Megiddo may turn out to be the lesser threat. There was a weird moment in the opening scene where Sabela/Reika left, turned into fog/smoke, and engulfed Rintarou in the smoke, but Rintarou just stood there still visible inside the smoke until the shot ended, and afterward he wasn't there. It feels like that was meant to transition into a disappearance effect, but they never completed the shot. Only glimpses of Sophia. It struck me that every time we've seen her since her near-disappearance, she's been sitting down. I wonder if the actress has health issues.
