Baraou no Souretsu Episode 3 is titled “I Am the Shadow, the Darkness Behind the Light” and was aired on the 23rd of Jan 2022. This episode’s most pivotal scenes comes right off the heels of last week’s reveal. Having seen his father’s decapitated head with his own eyes, Richard enters a rage state and mows down enemy soldier after enemy soldier. Though ostensibly on the side of York, he is for all purposes an independent agent on the battlefield: a harbinger of death that turns the tide from the shadows.
The Duke of York is dead. The Earl of Warwick pushes the late duke’s eldest son Edward as king, and Edward steps up to the responsibility. The decisive battle between the Houses of York and Lancaster takes place outside of London, and Richard is there, once again swinging his sword in search of blood. “In the darkness, all I see is the colour of blood. That is why I must fill it all in…” As blood rains down like rose petals, the battle ends with the House of York victorious — and the kingmaking Earl of Warwick is already planning Edward’s marriage.
