With a fire burning, Romeo asks Juliet (as Odin) to dry her clothes when she refuses. Romeo still believes her to be a man as he leaves to dry up Cielo. Juliet takes off her wig and hangs her clothes to dry when Romeo suddenly barges in to find Juliet instead of Odin. A shocked Juliet tripped when she took a step backwards and Romeo rushes in to pull her away from the fire, though his shirt was not so lucky.

The both of them lay on the floor when Juliet realises that Romeo is on top of her. Facing Juliet, Romeo gets on his hands and says her name as the screen fades to black.

My Opinions:

A bittersweet episode. The step towards a tragic love story <3 Juliet refusing to partake in revenge killings though her surrogate family think so other wise and Romeo taking great dislike towards his father way of governing. Though I wonder whether William actually knows about Juliet’s real identity. He sounds so convincing >.> And Cielo…. how I want a Ryuuba niao! XD. Next, Romeo finds out about Juliet, what will happen? The next page of a soap drama about to unravel! *gasp*
