Well, what an episode. What a season finale that was THE PROMISED NEVERLAND Episode 12 – 150146. I was so wrong about Phil. I mean, I knew he was way too smart for his own good, but I guess he wasn’t a traitor after all. Damm, and after everything we’ve seen about Isabelle, that last episode made me actually feel sympathy for her. All she wanted, was to survive.
I don’t know where to even begin with this episode. I’m just overall impressed by everything. Phil in particular took me by surprise. Think about it, after realizing that his family are being eaten, learning that Emma is going to leave him behind to stay watchful of the kids, all in a span of two minutes, he didn’t waste a second and responded that he’d stay back. I felt kinda shitty suspecting him after all this time. He’s a real trooper that one! Emma too! Talk about character development. After finally realizing that what Ray had been saying was true, she made the ultimate decision to leave the kids back, in hopes of coming back to safe them. Honestly, that was the best option that she got. As Gilda pointed out, the kids probably wouldn’t have been able to keep a cool head and would have spilled the beans soon enough. Not to mention that they’s freeze to death during the night. They just weren’t’ ready to escape.
When Isabelle called in reinforcement, seeing those demons again reminded me that their chances of escape was grim as heck. I mean, damm why are they so damm buff? Those kids brains must have some massive protein in them. Anyways, watching Ray get amazed by the kids who he thought would be a nuisance when it came to escaping, was satisfying. Now, when Mom pulled up I was like oh shit, it’s time. Of course she didn’t stop Emma and Emma shot a cold stare at Isabelle, bidding her goodbye. That was amazing. She just stared as they made their escape and realized that she lost.We then got a flashback of Isabelle too, which threw me off.
It was the same as Krone, in which we saw the process that Krone had to go through in order to survive. And yes, we finally got the confirmation that Ray is indeed her child. After the flashback I thought she was going to kill herself by jumping off the cliff, but instead she just gave up and went back to the kids, telling Phil that they escaped safely. Man, I felt kinda bad, especially by the scene of her pregnant and looking dead on the inside. That one got me! At least now we know Isabelle will be on the kid’s side, at least for now. So Phil and the rest of the four year old’s might be safe the for moment.
Seeing the kids escape had my adrenaline running. Let’s face it, all of us were expecting to see something messed up at that ending but instead we got a positive ending. Overall, this season was phenomenal.
