The journey side of the series with Ryner and Ferris making their way across the lands has them now making their way across the seas. And much like their land bound journeys, it does not go well in the slightest. So much so that the two are effectively booted off the ship after a battle and are floating along on a raft together, complete with polar opposite stories about what actually happened to get them in that situation. Thankfully, the two of them do have a certain charm together and seeing them both plot ways to kill Sion, of whom they hold all of this responsible for, is certainly amusing. But the episode cannot survive on a raft alone and it doesn't take long for a storm to sweep them onto the land.
This episode ends up turning into a bit of a gag about Ryner going off to kill Sion and it has Milk and the others trying to stop him along the way. It's a kind of smattering of action and silliness that works to some degree in that you can laugh along at the antics of it all, and the way Milk goes chasing after Ryner to try and stop him without any violence. But it's also the kind of episode that again feels out of place in the larger scheme of things. Misunderstandings are the order of the day in a way, but a lot of it comes down to the way that Ryner is kind of a mental midget at times and forgets what he's actually intent on doing because other things distract him. The fact that he tries to stop other assassins from killing Sion when he could have achieved his goal by letting them do it sort of slips past him.
