Akko wants to find the next Word but she has to climb a tree with flowers poisonous to witches. Professor Croix encourages her to do it while Professor Ursula cautions her that it is too close to the time that the flowers release the pollen that’s poisonous and that she needs to wait. Croix agrees to take Akko to the tree.
This was definitely a dramatic episode. We get a bit of Croix and Chariot’s past. We also get Akko fighting with Ursula. We also get a hint at one of Croix’s objectives and part of how she’s achieving it. I’m hoping more things get revealed in the next few episodes.
