Mirror mirror on the wall…
If the episode involving Ao’s dream wasn’t confusing enough, we now have been treated to a full blown Trapar infused hallucination extravaganza. Currently, I’m unsure what I just saw and I hope that a lot of this is touched on later on. I’m pretty sure that hope will be answered though as we’ve returned to the character of Mirror (I’ve seen both Mirror and Miller used for this character, but Mirror makes a lot more sense considering).
It turns out the Elena is not Elena, heck she’s not even Mirror. If half of what we saw in her Trapar fueled delusion is true, then she isn’t even from this world to begin with. In fact, I’m pretty sure my theory on an alternate reality has pretty much been confirmed as an actuality. This is definitely not an episode anyone should be watching while half asleep. In fact, I suggest watching it twice so that everything can soak in.
Another interesting tidbit gleaned from this episode is that Elena isn’t the only one that possibly isn’t who they are said to be. It seems that Elena and the other children came from special facilities used to train those who were exposed to Trapar from a very earlier age as they could then be used as IFO pilots. This means that there are many other children in this world who might not even come from this one to begin with. That’s some pretty heavy stuff right there, but it all hinges on there actually being another reality to begin with.
Whatever the case may be concerning reality, it’s nice to get further inside the head of the overly aloof otaku known as Elena. She has always struck me as a bit… off, and now it should be a little clearer as to why. Hopefully we’ll be able to get inside other characters heads and through them figure out what the hell is really going on.
