The latest episode of Sword Art Online Season 2 picked up where the last one left off with Kirito confronting Death Gun. Death Gun seems to be aware that this Kirito may be the one who cleared SAO and he could only know that as another SAO survivor. Kirito sees his wrist tattoo and realizes he is/was a member of Laughing Coffin, the murder guild from SAO that killed other players knowing they would die in the real world. We got to see a flashback that showed Kirito and the other players from the Lead Group confronting Laughing Coffin in their head quarters. Kirtio was forced to kill 2 of them as well as a LC member that tried to kill him later on in the series. Kirito is still shaken by the experience in the same way that Sinon is about the man she was forced to kill in the post office. At the end Kirito didn’t confirm Death Gun’s suspicions but DG promised that regardless of whether he was real or fake that he would kill him anyway.
We got to see more character development for Sinon as well as some great Sword vs Gun action from Kirito in this episode. We were even rewarded with a duel between the two that had a very interesting conclusion. This series seems to get better with each passing episode which is something I enjoyed about the first season of SAO. I like the lack of filler and the layers they add to the story in each episode. Overall this was a great episode and I’m giving it a 9/10
