It’s time for the debut. Let’s see what awaited the participant Shadows and their dolls.
Emilico, Mia and the rest of Team Rosemary celebrated getting one over Barbie after the cause of the Phantom attack was found last time.
Unfortunately Mia’s happiness was short lived as we learned not only who repeatedly trashed her room but who scarred her back. In short Sarah was jelly of Emilico.
John appears to be one of the less mean shadows. I could be wrong but throughout the episode he didn’t seem as douchey or narcissistic as the others excluding Kate.
Unfortunately Louise and Lou’s relationship was a vain one. It’s not so much her loving Lou but more loving her “face”. I hope for their relationship to change but I doubt it.
As always no spoilers. Not a single sentence or hint.
Meanwhile Emilico helped Rum gather the courage to finally talk to her mistress during the debut.
Speaking of the debut it’s time.
Put simply the first test was to find out how well the pairs meshed. By that I mean how devoted the dolls were to their masters, how much they focused solely on serving their masters and not bother with trivial matters beyond that, how well the master and doll copied their movements and mannerisms and how in sync they were among other categories. The judge doll, who we know had his own agenda, made all this vague as he quietly observed, added and deducted points.
Throughout the debut Kate and Emilico weren’t in sync at all. They had no time to practice as Emilico focused more on the night shift and didn’t know the debut was one day after solving the mystery of the Phantom attack.
Fortunately when the judge had the pairs dance Kate realized the problem was she focused too much on trying to get Emilico to act like a perfect doll similar to Mia, Lou and even Ass. She thought a doll had to be an obedient “face” or make their master look good but saw Emilico’s good points more than made up for her lack of perfection. Plus she wanted Emilico to pamper her more. The good kind of jelly unlike Sarah.
At a certain point the judge’s points system didn’t make sense to the shadows as they questioned him. He took them to the garden as an “apology” while the dolls had to wait. Little did they know the garden was labyrinthine. Their next test awaited.
Looking forward to it.
