Episode 12 recap
The Ancient Magus’ Bride season 2 episode 12 began with Chise Hatori and the other students exploring the underground area beneath the college. Focus was also given to Alice Swayne and Mikhail Renfred, who discussed their relationship. The conversation essentially ended by cementing them as adoptive father and daughter before shifting back to the waste tower underground area.
Chise and Zoe Ivey agreed that they felt as though they were being watched, while Philomela Sargant and Rian Scrimgeour were shown to have a similar experience.
Zoe then encountered anthropomorphic-like creatures but eventually got away. He went to find Chise, who was being confronted by Fabio Zaccheroni on her true identity, but her curse thankfully saved her.
The episode shifted to Seth Noel and Lucy Webster, where the two discussed their history as siblings and eventually admitted their love for each other. As Chise and the others returned above ground to the Courtyard, Lizbeth Sargant, also known as Grandmother, told Liza Quillyn that Philomela was withdrawing from the college.
However, Liza, who clearly suspected Lizbeth to be behind the recent attacks, instead locked down the college and attacked Lizbeth’s messenger.
What to expect (speculative)
With an antagonist identified and the college group going on the defensive, The Ancient Magus’ Bride season 2 episode 13 will likely concern itself with what the battle’s next step is. Chise and Elias Ainsworth are expected to receive a majority of the screen time.
The Ancient Magus’ Bride season 2 episode 13 will also likely give a major focus to Philomela Sargant, who’ll no doubt be shown as feeling ostracized and out of place given the situation. Fans will probably also see Chise and the others spend a good amount of the episode comforting Philomela. This is expected to lead to additional backstory on both her and Lizbeth.
