So last time I talked about how I'm starting to understand more where John is coming from and why he became like that. But now I gotta say it still doesn't justify his behavior now. He got some serious anger issues. At the start of the chapter you could already tell that he doesn't give a shit about his friends anymore. He used Adrion as a punching bag and only cared about Claire for her visions. Maybe it was wrong of Claire to tell him about that last vision but I think I understand why she did it. John kept asking about it and was basically putting her under a lot of pressure so maybe she had the feeling that she would lose her friend if she doesn't tell him. From the start she always helped him so he could protect them and become stronger but she never expected him to turn into such a monster. I can totally understand why she betrayed him in the end and I'm actually starting to really like her character.
I actually think Zirian's line fit perfect: "You're just an angry, petty, little brat who doesn't care about anyone but himself." Perfect description of John. But there's still hope for him because we've seen him act differently. It's just that the anger gets to his head and makes him act like an asshole.
Honestly, I don't have that much to say about this chapter. It's just another chapter of John beating up students in a blind rage. Friendship doesn't seem to matter anymore, he just fights and beats people up even when they're already down. "Because they did it to me" is such a stupid reason. John, you should be smarter than that...
Also I feel so bad for Claire. She's drowning in feelings of guilt. Everyone is hating and avoiding her because she created a monster but in reality she never intended it. Now she's even lying and making herself look like a really bad person just to get Zirian to cooperate to finally stop John :/
Also it was really unlucky that Adrion saw the conversation, he might tell John about it and that could be the reason why John wins the fight. Either that or he'll confront Claire about it.
Finally the chapter of confrontation! John is angry because he got backstabbed but I don't think that it's backstabbing at all. Not after he treated Claire and the other students terribly. And of course the plan completed failed because the students all had to go and use their abilities 🤦♀️ Not the smartest move. And even after everyone was down none of the words Claire said went through to him. I mean, that was to be expected because it's a flashback but it's still crazy to see :/
Now we also found out who contacted the authorities, it was Adrion. Witnesses all that must have been the last straw so I understand why he did that. Honestly, I'm surprised that John hasn't killed anyone yet!
And now we're back to the present. I really enjoyed the conversation between Sera and Claire, I hope they become friends! >.< Telling the story sure brought up a lot of emotions in Claire. But she has no hope that John will ever change. Sera on the other hand must have a lot to process right now. I think she still believes in John because she talked about how he first was when he entered Wellston so that Claire knows her efforts weren't for nothing. I really wonder how things are gonna continue~
It's so refreshing to be back at the school! It feels like it has been ages since I saw Remi and the others xD I really like her idea of creating a safe space for the students.
Poor Isen, he's scared for his life xD I'm glad to see that his article is already starting to help with the whole fake Joker situation.
I'm happy that Remi wants to do something about the whole situation. But I gotta say it also worries me a bit because that might make her a target at some point. But unlike her brother she might achieve a bit more because like she said, she's not alone. She has good friends who back her up.
I'm glad nothing bad happened when Remi fell >.< Way to go Blyke! Catching your princess <3 Also he showed one of his new abilities which almost made him spill his secret but he was lucky that Remi didn't ask him more about it xD
Aaaaand : Zeke. You will (not) be missed. Idiot...
