Purple Hyacinth 112 Analysis: Casual Creep (with Bundin and Fwoot)


We open with Lila faithfully visiting Lucas, still unconscious in the hospital, and then move to Lauren, being taken care of by Lucy. She looks in the mirror, contemplating what she has done to her friends and family, and now, just like her best bud Kieran, sees her reflection in blood and flames, with vicious monsters surrounding her.   

She is about to get "eaten" by one of them when a knock on the balcony window shakes her out of her waking nightmare. A dapper and dashing young man by the name of "almost got killed Kieran" is flashing his sardonic grin outside of her door.   

They exchange hilarious banter, and Kieran admits he has come all this way just to check on her - after only a few hours. Lauren asks about how the Phantom Scythe will handle Kieran's failure to get Lune, and the most romantic moment ever happens!! We are dead.   

Once again, Kieran deflects and doesn't allow anyone to show concern for him. He asks about how Lauren's friends handled their reunion,  and Lauren admits that they may suspect that Kieran is her partner but are mum about it. Kieran assures her of his doctors' silence as well.   

Kieran then puts his heart on the line and offers Lauren his bed - er -home, and Lauren thanks him. She remembers her begging Kieran to wake up in the factory, and maybe, just maybe, starts to realize how much he means to her.   

Just then, there is a knock on her door. Kieran disappears in a flash, and Lauren braces herself to remain calm for her reunion with her family, but actually seeing Tristan and Dakan looking distraught for her breaks her down. She steps away from Tristan when he reaches for her and bursts into tears, apologizing for having hurt them and her friends. She collapses, and Tristan takes her into his arms.  

Back at his apartment, Kieran proceeds to his locked room, finally allowing himself to express his pain, collapsing on the floor before he can reach the chair. Panting, he pulls out a drawing of a runed symbol, and we flash back  to a younger Kieran scratching this rune out over and over again from a prison cell, which he shares with another mysterious figure.
