Re: Zero Season 2 Episode 21 Spoilers
In episode 20, Subaru tells Roswaal what he has found out about his (Roswaal’s) past. 400 years ago, Roswaal was seemingly suffering from an unknown disease. One day, Echidna appeared in his room and kissed him. She later informed him that he didn’t have any disease but an extremely rare condition called Magic Release Period. When she kissed him, she sucked out the mana, easing its pressure on his body.
Roswaal subsequently began training under Echidna. He grew close to Beatrice and Ryuzu Meyer and became romantically drawn towards Echidna. At some point, Echidna told Roswaal that Hector, the Warlock of Melancholy, was after her, and they made preparations for his inevitable arrival.
When that day finally came, Echidna and Hector realized that they were still not ready. But Ryuzu volunteered to serve as the core of the crystal that would put up a barrier around the sanctuary, protecting everyone and everything within from Hector. Roswaal went to confront Hector but quickly discovered that he was no match for the warlock. When Echidna arrived, Hector had broken every bone in Roswaal’s body and squashed all his organs. As Echidna and Hector prepared for their fight, Ryuzu said her farewell to Beatrice before assimilating into the crystal.
At present, Roswaal refuses to concede defeat to Subaru. They argue, and Subaru tells Roswaal not to underestimate Emilia. The episode ends as Emilia comes out of her trial and discovers that Ram is waiting for her outside the ruin. Episode 21 might show the reunion between Emilia and Subaru.
