According to EP7 Yasu has an already determined plan because of an already determined fate. The tragedy is attributed to Battler.. Battler not going away but rather to Battler coming back to the Rokkenjima – reason why the tragedy occurs. They mention the way I understood it IIRC that that the tragedy only happened because Battler came back on that day. Should he never came back a ‘strange’ event would’ve happened but it’d pale in comparison to the Rokkenjima tragedy.
We assume that Battler is the missing piece that makes Yasu (Shannon likely) go in a rampage and kill everyone. Beatrice’s goal was to make Battler remember his sin whose sin was..not remembering / breaking his promise (because he forgot), which leads us to Shannon. EP7 is about how Shannon created another personality where another personality is created.
End of the Golden Witch.
# This child has nothing to gain from having someone solve the epitaph. # The gold of the Golden Land belongs to this child. She had absolutely no need to make you find it for her or to snatch it away herself. # Whether the epitaph’s riddle is solved or not, this child stands nothing to gain at all. # Regardless of whether the epitaph is solved or not, Beato has nothing to gain. # Her goal is not to make someone experience fear. # And it isn’t to have revenge on someone either. # Beato never committed murder for the sake of pleasure.
The puzzling part is that Yasu’s plan is executed when the following conditions are met:
The riddle isn’t solved; therefore Yasu must kill 13 people then blow up all evidence.
———> Why? Yasu doesn’t need the money as she clearly has it. The cash card assuming it is real (highly it is real) has everything Yasu could financially need. The gold isn’t necessary when that cash card makes it extremely more convenient.
Assumption: When the riddle is solved, Yasu stops.
—> Why? there’s nothing stopping Yasu for going back on her word. In the first place why does she need to do this? If revenge or anything else is her motive then the riddle is irrelevant and it would only be interpreted as a way for to not let the world understand what just happened. It should be irrelevant that a total stranger solves the riddle or not, it should become relevant when solving the riddle leads to other inevitable events Yasu knows of. The epitaph should be relevant to her in some way, yet the red says it means nothing to Beatrice…
Assumption: Yasu wants to murder everyone.
——> Why? If that’s her motive for example revenge her actions would make more sense, yet it isn’t revenge. Blowing up the mansion is the quickest way. It makes no sense she puts herself in danger to personally carry out the epitaph therefore we come to the conclusion that the process of the epitpah is necessary for Yasu because it puts pressure on Battler to remember his sin. According to the games even when the riddle has been solved there hasn’t been any noticeable change in Shannon (EP5). Why?
Assumption: The epitaph is irrelevant.
According to the red nothing changes if the riddle is solved or not. What do we know about this riddle and what happens afterward? We know people get greedy and murder takes place from 5th-6th October in which there is someone who is responsible even if it isn’t Yasu. This means to that the situation is always the same no matter the outcome. When it isn’t solved Yasu goes on a rampage and kills everyone. When Yasu doesn’t act, there are others that take Beatrice’s place. Yasu could be among the victims of this new culprit whose motive is likely money / revenge. The game repeats.
There are possibilities one is that Shannon is fully aware of her multiple identities and is always in conflict of deciding what to do until October 4th comes. On that precise day Shannon changes to Beatrice and is forced to kill everyone. ?? Another is that Shannon is unaware of this herself and Beatrice’s personality takes over once Shannon “dies” as her conciseness / sense of self is lost completely. This might be related to Beatrice “fully” reviving. Shannon, the person we know as Shannon, is innocent because she is oblivious to this.
As for a motive. Shannon, Yasu, Beatrice have already gave up themselves to the fate in which a tragedy always occur. When Yasu doesn’t act there will be the siblings or somebody else that gets greedy and uses the Witch to kill everyone and get the money for themselves. As anyone can guess the plan and motives may change from person to person and from fragment to fragment. The bomb is there to erase all evidence and make it a cat box leading to why the games repeat over and over. Because no one is able to know the real truth behind the 1st tragedy.
From this the following is drawn. Yasu is forced to carry out this plan as a requirement. No, because it says that the epitaph is irrelevant to Beatrice. This is a pattern that she cannot escape from. Beatrice neither takes pleasure out of this nor gains anything out of it. It means that Yasu doesn’t want October 6th to come. Why? Because the typhoon will go away. Because any witnesses or the other possible culprits will leave (assuming she isn’t the culprit on that game), and overall everyone who knows the truth. More importantly, because Battler will leave the island. The game was created to keep Battler in the cat box until he remembered. The cat box is factor in this equation that is mandatory. Why? To erase all evidence of what happened.
To start with a clean game board for the next games. We assume the main target has always been Battler as mentioned in EP4 and EP5. This is the part I don’t feel at all confident about but ties back to EP6 in a way that can’t be dismissed. Battler’s whole forgiving attitude towards Beatrice makes more sense when we assume Beatrice was never guilty or wasn’t as guilty as we figure she was.
Ange and the readers are confused why Battler would act to forgiving towards someone who killed his whole family over and over. Normally a person would be angry but Battler goes as far as telling Beatrice that he should be the one apologizing to her. This meant that Battler did something horrible to Beatrice that led her to become this way. If Battler hadn’t done this wouldn’ve have happen. The tragedy happens because of Battler and Battler coming back. Seeing that Battler is responsible he feels guilty for the events. Does that justify Beatrice killing the family members? I don’t suppose it ends there because it wouldn’t explain Battler protecting Beatrice that much even if she was only partially a victim. Then again I don’t consider Battler’s behavior ‘normal’ therefore I don’t expect his answer to be a completely a rational one.
The Case is the following –
when the gold is found the siblings or any other character commits a crime. When Beatrice gives up all hope in EP4 she purposely puts the game in hold so that nothing would be revealed. She still hides the identities of the culprits even if that wasn’t her intention. A theory is drawn from this is, that Yasu cannot stop the tragedy alone. Yasu is forced to blow up all evidence so Battler wouldn’t see the faces of the culprits. The reason why the game repeats over and over is because the ending is always a bad one. The tragedy even with or without Yasu/Beatrice doing anything always take place. This is a reality that is infinitely difficult to alter. Yasu is forced to blow up the mansion to reset the game board and try again – for someone to get that ‘good ending’.
The conflicting part is that they never leave the island (except in Ange’s future). They don’t leave the island even when Battler is Game Master which was a huge red flag. The result is the same – everyone dies. Not even Battler when he is GM can change this even after he promised “he’ll take Beatrice outside the game board with him”. Everything resets once again which creates the feeling that this was an illusion or was in the first place impossible. Yasu became Beatrice because of Battler. She then tried to get him to remember his sin. Beatrice looked for the one fragment in which a tragedy didn’t take place. Because it always happens, the games repeat over and over. The culprits vary but the result is always the same. They don’t leave the island because so far there hadn’t been a fragment in which a single tragedy doesn’t take place. Rokkenjima tragedy is the fate Yasu is in which makes her unable to create a good ending no matter how many times the wheel of fate pan.
Is that supposed to be relatively ‘satisfactory’ answer?
