Season 3 episode 7 notes

  • Lloyd sneaks past the Gardening Club on his way back into Eisenkrone. He uses the secret entrance to get into the Club Room, and get changed. He meets Nina in the common room, who explains what has happened at the school – that Alice, Rei, and Minami have all been attacked, and that the others might be in danger.
  • Cecil and Lloyd together check the psitanium network using their badges and Cecils’ powers. Everyone else is all right, though Ryoko is hiding in the assassin’s club. Haruhi is out on a roof and difficult to reach for any assailants.
  • Lloyd goes to see his friends in the infirmary. Professor Ryder is busy doing surgery on Ralph; the situation is so dire that he has to open his bottle of Jack Ryder’s Old No. 7.
  • Parsifal and Gloria von Rosen come into the room. Gloria’s arm has been badly injured by a Storm Wolf, something which Parsifal makes sure to brag extensively about; the two of them have attacked and killed a Storm Wolf that was hidden in the basement.
  • Cecil punches Parsifal in the face, overcome with rage. Lloyd holds him back, and Cecil calms down some. He checks with Ryu, and his fears are confirmed – it seems the Dueling Club has killed Wolfie.
  • Cecil jumps to the beastmastery storage room. He finds Ryu, who is filled with rage and grief at having lost his dear pet. Ryu is about to go out and beat up the whole Dueling Club, but Cecil manages to calm him down by assuring him Wolfie was important to him too.
  • Cecil tells Ryu to trust Lloyd. Ryu says he wants to speak with Lloyd directly, after he’s had time to calm down.
  • Ryu heads out to the forest to take out his aggression on some trees, and train to become stronger. He promises Cecil he will help the Military History Club build up their strength for the coming conflicts.
  • Lloyd is filled with despair and sadness as he talks to his injured friends. Everything is terrible.
  • Cecil returns to the infirmary, and informs Lloyd what just happened. They talk about everything that’s been going on.
  • Professor Ryder shares the news about why the teachers have been in conference all afternoon, and haven’t been able to stop the violence: The Kaiser is dead. The teachers have convened to deal with these news.
  • Lloyd goes out to comfort Ryu, while Cecil heads out to patrol with Nina.
  • Lloyd speaks to Ryu, and Ryu says that Cecil said that “Lloyd will know what to do.” Lloyd is even more overcome with self-doubt and misery. Ryu is sad. Lloyd is sad. Everything is terrible.
  • Lloyd returns to his room, to deep-freeze it with his powers and be alone with his bad thoughts. He is depressed and unable to cope with all the pressure of being seen as a hero by his friends and classmates.
  • Cecil hears an explosion, and goes to investigate. It turns out to be Rafael Gonzola, whose talent for explosives has been discovered by the Engineering Club. Zelenka is now selling Rafael’s mining- and foresting explosives. Rafael is oblivious to the possibility of using his inventions as weapons.
  • Cecil returns to his patrol. After a while, he sits down on a roof to rest, and hears piano music. It turns out to be Charlotte. He heads through the open window and listens to her play. She seems frustrated, so he makes contact..
  • Cecil and Charlotte talk about the situation. Charlotte thinks it is sad that Parsifal and Lloyd are whipping up students to fight each other. Cecil convinces her Lloyd might be innocent.
  • Cecil meets with Nina after the patrol. He reveals he wants to train with her and Rei, so that they can all become better at self-defense. He and Nina go to the old boxing ring in the Britannian wing, to practice some rough bare-knuckle boxing.
  • Naimitsu enters Lloyd’s room, despite still having a cold. She takes him out for a special training session in the forest, to focus his willpower. Lloyd, reluctantly, agrees.
  • Lloyd informs Naimitsu that Akane knows about his Sturmmeister powers now.
  • Naimitsu goes to train in the place where Ryu massacred all the trees. It’s been a dry, hot week, and there are many wood chips lying around.
  • Naimitsu discovers that someone is spying on them. Since Lloyd hasn’t got his mask, she jumps off to investigate, leaving Lloyd alone in the darkness.
  • Lloyd hears the voice of the dragon Ashardalon, who claims that Lloyd can’t handle all his power. Lloyd objects, saying he never wanted the power, but Ashardalon claims that he did – he wanted enough power to protect his friends. Now all that power is his… and soon, the Storm will claim him.
  • Lloyd loses control of his powers and sets the forest ablaze. Naimitsu is hurt and falls from a tree. Lloyd, alone in the inferno, reaches within himself and releases his Sturmmeister potential, unleashing the elements. He takes control of the fire, and uses his mastery over air and earth to locate Naimitsu, stuck under a branch near the flames.
  • Lloyd rescues Naimitsu. He tells her that he has finally decided that he will never stop being Lloyd, no matter what people tell him; he will always try to save the world, even if it’s impossible to succeed and no matter how much it hurts.
  • Naimitsu is overwhelmed by Lloyd’s powerful will and kind heart.
  • It turns out Akane was the one spying on them. Akane confronts Lloyd about his secret Sturmmeister identity, and Lloyd introduces himself by his true name: Lloyd Pendragon vii Britannia.
  • Cecil arrives, seeing the inferno and being relieved when Lloyd and Akane use their combined powers to quench it.
  • Lloyd serves Naimitsu a bowl of warm broth, re-heated with his now-stable fire powers, to help against her cold.
