So that's basically the end of the filler, I assume? The next episode is going to put the finishing touches on this story and transition into the next one. I'm not sure if it's filler, but I assume it's not. This definitely had some good stuff, especially near the end here, but I'd like to get back to the canon stuff. I almost can't believe this was all filler, though. They made a lot of it seem very important, which I guess is a good sign for filler, unless it screws up canon stuff later, as that would be the problem with making it seem so important.
But I'm still glad this arc can presumably be removed from the series without missing anything that will be important later, and I think we all know why. WE WILL NEVER SPEAK OF THEM AGAIN.
