Re:Zero season 2 broke the hearts of the avid fans with the emotional and tear-jerking scenes it incorporated in the first episode.
Re:Zero has just made its highly-anticipated comeback after COVID-19 took a toll on its production. However, instead of being happy, fans were distraught with the first episode of the show’s season 2.
As per Crunchyroll, Re:ZERO season 2’s synopsis reads:
“Even after dying countless times, Subaru finally ended the threat of the White Whale and defeated the Witch Cult’s Sin Archbishop representing sloth, Petelgeuse Romaneeconti. But only shortly after overcoming a tragic ending and reuniting with his beloved Emilia, Subaru learns that Rem has been erased from this world, having fallen victim to the White Whale’s Fog of Elimination in the midst of Subaru’s death loop. With the White Whale now gone, Subaru and Emilia are forced to confront a reality they never dreamed would happen.”
Episode 1 features emotional scenes
Episode 1 of Re:Zero’s second installment started with Subaru Natsuki and Emilia as usual. Rem and Ram were showcased later on. Things were peaceful for the two characters at first.
However, this all changed after a pair of villains made an appearance. The foes of the duo, who embodied the sin themselves, challenged Rem to a duel. At the end of the fight, Rem was put in a coma.
After Subaru learned the fate of his friend, he was left in a puddle of tears. Consequently, he tried to use his Return by Death to save Rem. However, after Subaru died to reset things, everyone except him had forgotten Rem.
