WARNING: This episode contains spoilers for episode four.
Class seems to be getting better and better every single week. Here we see that the fourth episode continues to improve on such a strong series so far. There are some brilliant stories set up here for the future of the series, and is a really intresting episode.
As the first and only proper two parter of the series, we see here set up an epic and brilliant story. The focus splits on two things. To start with, we see April and the effects of sharing her heart with Corakinus. April is one of the most developed characters in the series so far as I believe, as her personality changes are effected here. And as I said about the first episode, the shadow kin are great, and they have a welcome return in this episode.
Ram and April's relationship also develops in this episode. Ram is the other character who I feel has been developed a lot since the first episodes. He isn't the most likeable, but he has shown some strong improvements in character.
Meanwhile, Dorothea (Pooky Quesnel) makes an introduction in this episode. She is the new headmistress of coal hill academy, after the tragic death of Mr Armitage. She is a very mysterious character, and works well with dynamics of Mrs Quill, who is shaping up to be a great character.
The flower petals are here as well. These are an interesting idea, as you wouldn't think they would be threating, but they prove to be. An absolutely fantastic episode is improved by this story.
However, in this episode, the strongest part is April and her connection to the shadow kin. The episode ends with a cliffhanger, that left it open for episode 5, brave-ish heart. I just hope that this episode isn't disappointing in comparison to this one.
