Good episode, but way to predictable. There were no surprises at all.

4 (Ryo Ishida) Made way too many mistakes. While we saw this coming, the character didn't. As we discovered his background in Season 1, we learned both he and his brother despised their Father over the way he ruled. Instead of Honor and Integrity with fairness, he used fear and brutality. Something they swore they would never do.

But now, 4 has no honor and no integrity. Because of the virus, not only has he become like his Father, but much, much worse than he ever was. But now he has a major problem. Outside of the guard, nobody is loyal to him. The only general who was, was killed and all his battle cruisers destroyed with all hands. So now he has nothing.

And to make matters worse, nobody outside of the guard heard Hiro before 4 murdered him. So now suddenly showing up saying the Empress and his Brother are dead, nobody will follow him. He thought he could save Zairon, but he was wrong.

The title of the next episode is a dead give away that the crew of the Raza make it out ok. All that remains to be seen, is what happens to 4 (Ryo).

I'm glad he retook the throne. Maybe things can work out in spite of all the problems (I feel the same way about Trump.)

I didn't really have a problem with anything that happened, except when he killed his brother. He killed the rest of them, fine. But why kill his brother after his brother willing turned the throne over to him? Seemed darn evil, like all he wanted was to eliminate his brother as a possible future rival even though his brother had already pretty much eliminated himself from that role.

I think Ryo is going to end up being a bad guy that the others have to fight now.

Ryo thinks his brother will be just like the one from the alternate universe. He was trying to change the empire from a Monarchy to a Democracy. So in his own universe, he viewed his brother as a threat.

I also did not like the threat he gave six when he demanded the blink drive, and Six said we'll never give it to you. He implied then he would take it, by force if need be.

I agree. He's evil now, and the Raza will end up fighting him too.

Yeah, that made me angry as well. It was pure evil. I don't want him to become a bad guy, but we never know what the writers will do.

It's possible that they may remove the old memories they gave him back... thereby reverting him to his "new" self version. I've also considered the idea that nothing we saw in the last episode, after he asked the android to restore his memories, actually happened. What if she played some scenario out just in his mind based of the alt reality Ryo's actions in order to show him what would likely happen? Maybe this will all end up being a "who shot JR" type thing when next season he wakes up from her lesson and says; "maybe restoring my memories would be a bad idea."

That's an interesting possibility. But when you can't tell reality from a computer programmed scenario, that's frightening. People could be imprisoned in a false reality and not realize it. Let's hope technology in our world never reaches that point.

There are people who believe we already are living in a reality like that. I think maybe they just watched "The Matrix" to much.
