It’s funny that Gates talks about balance since he’s so FREAKING INSANE and uh, off balance. That’s all I have to say about that.
Sousuke has definitely hit the breaking point. Everything has fallen apart around him and now we will see if he chooses to pick up the pieces and carry on, or give up. “Die? That’s a good idea too,” he says in the beginning, and at this point it seems that he is choosing the latter option.
He meets up with a prostitute who looks like Chidori. At first it doesn’t look like he’s going to go with her until she yells at him, much like the real Chidori would. He might have chosen to go with her because he thought being around someone who looks like her might make him feel better, but as memories of Chidori flash through his mind he only becomes more agitated. I wasn’t surprised that he ended up pushing the prostitute away and not going through with it, but the scene was very well done nonetheless.
Two more episodes to go! Argh, only two!
