The last episode of Scarlet Nexus was a game-changer for the series. The team of red strings reached Togetsu safely, but even they didn’t know what lay ahead. In the headquarters of the town, Yuito and the team reach a dingy room with nothing but a hand scanner. Yuito placed his hand over the scanner, which accepted the security code. As a result, an AI hologram appeared in the darkroom. The secrets revealed by this AI turned the tables for all the soldiers. However, there was more in Scarlet Nexus Episode 12 than just this.
Now, all the players will have different personal motivations to fight the government. Moreover, the secret chain of illegally creating Others must also be stopped. But before that, there are many questions that need to be answered. The previous episode left fans with many queries. Thus, here is a brief explanation of the previous episode of Scarlet Nexus.
Scarlet Nexus Episode 12 Ending Explained!
Scarlet Nexus Episode 12 serves as a turning point for the anime series. As the team of red strings reach Togetsu, they find the headquarters to be deserted by authorities. Yuito and the team were expecting guards and officers in the place, but all they found was an AI that welcomed the intruders. Yuito immediately recognized the AI and revealed that the Hologram could help them in finding out about the government’s secret plans. The AI spilled a lot of information about the current state of being of humans.
However, this trope has been especially disliked by fans. Since the pilot episode, Scarlet Nexus has been relying on storytelling formats and monologues to explain important plot points. Fans often complain about not getting the visuals of the concepts that are explained. Nevertheless, the new insights brought new perspectives into the frame. Upon asking about the origin of the New Himiko, the Hologram revealed that the town was set up by the humans who returned from Moon.
Moreover, Yuito asked if there were still any hopes left to make contact with those people. The AI revealed that the Earth’s authorities closed contact with those people ages ago. Thus, there might not be any remaining straw to communicate with them.
In the third act of the episode, Kogeru began his mission to free Kasane from the prison. In the dingy cell, Kasane was getting flashbacks of Togetsu and its alleyways. However, she could not make sense of these visions. The door of the cell slammed open, and Kogeru asked Kasane to collect her things. At first, Kasane did not recognize Kogeru. But she eventually agreed to follow him along. The episode ended with Garrison turning up the alarm system. The whole arena went red, and Yuito froze at the sight of red. On this note, Scarlet Nexus Episode 12 rolled the end credits.
What To Expect Next?
The final moments of the episode were certainly jaw-dropping. With the alarms buzzing all around, Yuito cannot regain his conscious state amid so much red. Now, in the forthcoming episode, Yuito might succumb to his past traumas and end up losing his consciousness for a short while. Meanwhile, his crew will help him out of the hologram room. But the real question is Yuito’s state. What will happen to him now? These questions will set the stage for the season finale.
For the forthcoming episode, fans can expect to see the finale battle of Yuito and the authorities. Every day, the lines between friend and foe are blurring. Thus, even the team does not know who the mole is within them. Besides the speculative plot devices, one thing that fans can expect to see with surety is the reunion of Kasane and Yuito.
