Season 3 episode 4 notes

  • Cecil and Lloyd arrive at the first years’ welcome party. Gabriel is there, socializing. Lloyd goes to speak with Tomoe and Haruhi, Cecil goes to speak with Minami but is interrupted by Evghenia.
  • Evghenia accidentally almost shoots Cecil with an experimental crossbow that she is testing. A second bolt flies through a window. Evghenia tosses the crossbow to Cecil, and uses her prototype storm-powered spring boots to jump after the bolt. She lands on the piano in the old Britannian ballroom, and breaks it.
  • Cecil fiddles with the crossbow and disarms it.
  • Kain arrives at the party, interrupting Lloyd’s conversation with Tomoe.
  • Lloyd is tackled by Haruhi. After exchanging a few words with Tomoe, he carries Haruhi over to Viktor to tell him he’s been accepted into the club. Viktor is overjoyed. Lloyd asks Viktor if he has any hobbies; Viktor elusively answers that he likes tea, then quiets down and behaves very unlike himself. After a few mysterious excuses, he leaves.
  • Minami accidentally unleashed her mindbending powers in shock, and runs away to shield her mind. Cecil follows her. They have a heartfelt conversation. Minami talks a bit about her family and about how she would like to know about Akane’s powerful mind shielding techniques.
  • Professor Anderson contacts Cecil and says he recently sensed a Kushieda psychic signature, quite faint.
  • Cecil returns Minami to the party and exchanges a few words with Lloyd.
  • Haruhi gets her hands on the crossbow and almost shoots Tomoe. Cecil tackles Tomoe to the ground to save her, and she’s quite upset, but thanks to Lloyd’s explaining the situation nobody gets in a fight. Kain grudgingly thanks Cecil for the help (but Tomoe does not).
  • Kain tells Cecil they should team up and beat up snooty aristocrats, because Kain is tired of groveling and he knows Cecil is a bit of a rebel.
  • Cecil heads off to Ritterburg for training.
  • Evghenia asks Lloyd about where she can test the crossbow, she needs to try it in actual combat. She also asks Lloyd to later help her test the storm boots, as she needs to try them with different payloads.
  • Lloyd talks to everyone at the party. Princess Sophia arrives and is ice cold and polite. She confronts Lloyd about his rivalry with the Prince, and after a brief conversation she uses her authority as well as two Storm Butlers, Simon and Ralph, to shut down the party. Everyone goes home, disheartened.
  • Lloyd, upset after having a very bad day, wanders idly until he runs into Rei, who takes him upstairs to the Assassin’s Club. He bumps into Mikhail, who is hiding from Evghenia.
  • Lloyd gets invited to dine with Anita. They enjoy pleasant conversation until the calm is broken by Yvain, who announces that Mrs. Messerschmidt has been defeated in a duel with Mr. Honecker, and that Mr. Honecker will now be the school’s only martial arts teacher. Gretha is demoted to lunch lady once again.
  • A distraught Lloyd begins to lose control of his powers. He heats up so much that he melts his ice cream. He politely excuses himself. Lloyd retreats to his room very quickly before he catches fire, and uses his waterbending powers to turn his room into a freezer.
  • Cecil lands outside the guard station in Ritterburg, finding a man named Mr. Müller. He’s the new owner of the Rose and Dagger, and he demands compensation for the damages Bert made to his establishment. He will see Bert in court.
  • Hildegard tells Cecil about all the troubles she’s been having with disgruntled nationalist Teutonians. The Rose and Dagger seems to be the hub of the nationalist activities. Mathilda von Zweibrücken is possibly also involved.
  • Hildegard takes Cecil to the roof and teaches him counterattack techniques as his first advanced weapons mastery lesson.
  • Cecil returns to Eisenkrone late at night. He spots Agnes on a roof and goes to speak with her, asking her to repair the broken piano. Agnes spots a storm monkey on Cecil’s back.
  • The storm monkey is distracted by shiny objects, and seems surprisingly tame and unafraid of people. A second storm monkey appears. Cecil takes Agnes, and both the storm monkeys, to the Britannian ball room by jumping.
  • Ryu wanders by, looking for ten monkeys. Wolfie accidentally broke their cages. Cecil returns two monkeys to Ryu, leaving eight on the loose.
  • The monkeys stole Agnes’ tool belt while they were traveling and threw it away. Cecil goes to look for it. A third monkey appears, carrying a bra. It disappears, and a very angry Tomoe accuses Cecil of having broken into her room since he’s hanging out right outside her window.
  • Tomoe tries to punch Cecil, but misses.
  • Cecil returns the tool belt to Agnes, ignoring Tomoe for now. Agnes repairs the piano, though she can’t tune it.
  • Cecil and Agnes geek out about architecture and engineering together and have a very friendly moment.
  • Ryoko fetches Lloyd from his freezer room. She says Naimitsu wants to train with him tonight, in a few hours.
  • Lloyd, having calmed down some, makes some porridge to go see Mrs. Messerschmidt and make sure she is all right.
  • Lloyd runs into the third monkey, which drops the stolen bra in front of him. Lloyd writes a note for the garments’ owner, and sternly tells the monkey to not be so mischievous. Lloyd succeeds in commanding the monkey and gains a bit of confidence.
  • Lloyd talks to Mrs. Messerschmidt and learns that Ivan Honecker insisted on a duel because he thought Mrs. Messerschmidt was too soft on her students. Ivan’s plan is to beat the crap out of all his students, to make them more strong. Mrs. Messerschmidt thinks it’s a bad idea.
  • Lloyd goes back to the club room to write his essay on leadership for Politics class.
  • Cecil sits down to write his essay in the Britannian wing. Charlotte comes walking by, and together they tune the piano.
  • Charlotte says that she despises Lloyd because “nobody can be that nice”. She thinks he’s an evil manipulative bastard because that’s just the way people are. She’s sick and tired of the political game, where everyone fakes niceness. When Cecil says he likes Lloyd, Charlotte is disappointed and upset, and leaves.
