This third episode introduces the emotions and complex psychology where one game ends and another begins.

This recap of Alice in Borderland Season 2, Episode 3 contains spoilers.

You will remember it in Episode 2 From Alice in Borderland season 2, Today He is given the unenviable task of guarding the base during a game of osmosis. It was while performing this function iron And his team were able to take the lead by forcing him into an impossible situation, and Neraghi Blame him brutally for that. A flashback at the beginning of this third episode helps establish why Tata feels so uncomfortable in situations he believes he is unsuitable for – when he was a mechanic in a garage, an error mutilated a colleague, and everyone blamed him. So. History seems to be repeating itself.

Alice in Borderland Season 2, Episode 3 recap

This is related to the outcome of the osmosis game. Remember, there was only 500 points, but the King of Clubs and his team seemed to have every possible outcome covered. After stopping a dying Neiragi from being raped UsagiArisu goes to concede to Kyuma, shaking hands with the man who showed him who he really is. Kyouma reminds him that touching will result in a fight, and he will win, but he is Arisu’s last request.

Of course, Arisu has a trick up his sleeve, almost literally, and it’s silly that Kyouma doesn’t see it, but then again it’s a pretty out-of-the-box solution. As we go back a few minutes in time, we see that Arisu spots Tatta trying to slash his hand with a container door in order to remove the bracelet. Since removing the bracelets is never detailed in the rules, he discovers that removing the bracelet and placing it in Arisu’s pocket will grant him an additional 10,000 points, which will exceed with the score of any individual on the opposing team. she has. This means that Arisu has to smash Tatta’s hand to pieces, but if he doesn’t, they will all die.

this is really Alice in Borderland Giving up some logical consistency for stronger gains for Tata’s character arc, and an interesting philosophical conversation between Arisu and Kyuma once the latter realizes he’s been tricked. I think it works. After the tumultuous pace of the first two episodes, resolving the first game in this way is both surprisingly satisfying and exciting; The King of Clubs balloon exploding into a fireball is just icing on the cake.

However, the experience changes the players, and costs Tata his life (I think he died of blood loss? It’s not entirely clear, but it seems likely that he made his usefulness in the plot.) I imagine some will be unhappy with the accuracy of this game, but as mentioned Above, I think it worked fine.

The action then moves to Teo prison, where the note instructs the players to put on a cordon and report back to the central guardroom. We see that Chichia Among the players, learn the game called solitary confinement. The goal is to find out the symbol on the back of the player’s collar without looking at yourself. There is an hour in each round, and in the final five minutes, players have to enter their cell and reveal their token. The code changes every round, and failure means heads explode normally.

The hook here is that Jack of hearts It is already present among the players, though no one knows who it is, and the game only ends when Jack dies, meaning everyone is motivated to lie to Jack, who could be anyone. No one can be trusted to tell the truth. It’s a wonderfully thought-provoking psychological angle to the game, and as before, I won’t go into every detail of it, because that might spoil the fun.

While the first few rounds of this game are mostly a display of Chishiya’s calmness and intelligence, there is a little wildcard thrown in – a girl named Urumiwho is suspiciously dressed like a classic depiction of Alice in Wonderland and pulls the strings of a large group until, predictably, mistrust begins to fester between them and they end up with nearly all of them. But the foundations of this game are basically the nature of people. How can no one really and honestly be trusted, how everyone, when pressed, will save themselves first of all. In an ironic twist, the exact opposite impulse causes Chishiya’s confidant and ally, api, essentially abstaining and committing suicide, stripping Chishiya of his only means of safely surviving each round. Raising the stakes here, the episode ends without the Jack of Hearts’ identity being revealed.

So, who is the Jack of Hearts? my vote is The submissive woman is controlled by the dominant partner. But we have to wait and see.
