Kumo desu ga, Nani ka Episode 17 Spoilers
In episode 16, Kumoko learns from the Administrator that due to her latest evolution, she now belongs to the race Zana Horowa, which effectively makes her an immortal. This is when D calls her again and congratulates her for being the first entity to evolve into Zana Horowa and acquiring immortality. D then shares with her that Komoko and others in the class died because a hero and demon lord launched an attack against D. She goes on to reveal that many of the others have been reincarnated as humans.
15 years later, Shun and his party enlist the service of Basgath to lead them through the Great Elroe Labyrinth. Fei gains the ability to transform into a human. With a unit of Hugo’s Imperial army being stationed at the main entrance of the labyrinth, Bagath leads Shun and others to an entry point located under the ocean. As they swim their way there, they get attacked by a water dragon, and Fei and Shun save each other.
In the past, Kumoko meets a water dragon while out fishing and easily kills it. She then transports back into the labyrinth and drowns the Puppet Teratect. As she celebrates her victory, she gets attacked by Demon Lord Ariel, who slices her up in pieces. In episode 17, Ariel might request Kumoko to stop attacking Queen Taratect, but neither will likely understand because of a language barrier. Ultimately, Ariel might decide that Kumoko is too dangerous and try to kill her. Ever the survivor, Kumoko might save herself and later even kill Queen Taratect.
