Review: Fairy gone Episode 16 Best in Show

Quick Summary

In Fairy gone episode 16, “Kite Laughing Out Loud,” Marlya Noel continued to struggle with knowing who she should trust — if she should trust anyone. In spite of her doubt, she deployed to an island where customs agents discovered a startling bit of contraband: an apparently legitimate copy of a Black Fairy Tome. Dorothea, however, weren’t the only ones interested in the find. Bitter Sweet hired Patricia Pearl to help her retrieve the package. They arrived to find Veronica Thorne and Damien Carme already there. But those two weren’t actively trying to retrieve the book. They were trying to get away from another party who had arrived to retrieve it. Why were they running? Did one man really take out the entire garrison guarding the book? And how did he get so powerful?

Best Moment in the Show

Well, if nothing else, we’ve clarified a key question… Capture from the Funimation stream.

You ever watch 90% of an episode, feeling just a little bored, only to sit bolt upright at some amazing reveal at the very end?

That just happened to me. And it told me a lot about what I like about this series.

We got to watch some quality political intrigue play out in this episode. Three factions collided as each tried to retrieve the Black Fairy Tome. Eajey Daven Thor arrived first, and using both his fairy and fairy weapon, he completely routed Damien and Veronica. Then he did the same thing to Bitter Sweet (it was GREAT to see her again — her personality steals the scene) and Patricia. Both of them, by the way, get full points for recognizing when they were out-gunned and retreating.

Very, very smart.

Did Eajey really try to call Bitter “loose?” Methinks the gentleman feels a bit threatened by a powerful woman… Capture from the Funimation stream.

My Best in Show moment, though, was much, much more personal. Damien decided he’d try to talk to Marlya and Free Underbar, since he had met them before and was convinced they considered him a reliable and upright man. However, he caught sight of Veronica fleeing from Eajey, and he called out her name.

Marlya was furious (21:58). At first, I thought she was angry about Damien deceiving her and Free. I thought her first question reinforced that idea: “Who the hell are you?”

But then she let slip the real cause of her anger.

“What at you to Ver?”

Marlya was jealous! Not as in, “What are you doing with my friend,” but as in “What are you doing with her? She’s mine!

Suddenly, the whole episode seemed much more interesting.

What did you think of the introduction of Eajey? What was your Best in Show moment? Let me know in the comments!

  1. I really loved this episode. One of the things I’ve really liked about the first season is that there were episodes that just ended and I felt like there should be more.

    The one thing I was trying to figure out what happened with the thread they just left dangling at the end of the last episode. I hope they come back to it.

    I don’t know if I came away with jealousy, but that is a pretty interesting read on that interaction. I felt like it was just more surprise and anger at being lied to.

    1. “I don’t know if I came away with jealousy, but that is a pretty interesting read on that interaction. I felt like it was just more surprise and anger at being lied to.”

      I can’t say you’re wrong.

      However, did you see the last scene in episode 17? I can’t claim it’s irrefutable proof, but I’m feeling pretty confident in my interpretation!

      1. I haven’t yet. I kind of rely on your posts to let me know when there’s a new episode out. 🙂

  2. Interesting. Jealousy didn’t occur to me. It felt more like a what-are-you-drawing-her-into thing to me. It’s one thing if she’s seeking revenge on her own, but if others were to use her feelings for their own ends…

    But jealousy adds an interesting element to the mix. It’s perfectly plausible: why’s she with you when she’s rejecting me?

    1. “It’s perfectly plausible: why’s she with you when she’s rejecting me?”

      I might well be wrong, but given what happened in episode 14, it really felt like jealously! I’m curious to see where this goes. I almost thought the show would forget about episode 14, but it looks like they’re carrying it forward.

Please let me know what you think!
