Redo of Healer Episode 8 Spoilers

In episode 7, Keyarga arrives in the arena where the people from his village are kept and starts killing the executioners, who put up an enchanted barrier, hoping that it will nullify his magic. But Keyarga has predicted this and sent Freia to reverse the effect of the spell. He becomes furious when he learns that the villagers have been poisoned. Ultimately, Keyarga only manages to save a boy from his village. Freia appears as a large projection of Flare in front of the crowd and tells them what Keyarga earlier told Kureha. As the crowd becomes frenzied and starts killing the executioners, Keyarga takes the boy and leaves.

He later hands over the boy to his business partner, who promises to look after the child. He then decides to follow Norn and her army to the city of Branica. Kureha stays behind and continues to spy for him in the capital. In the closing moments of the episode, a conversation with Freia makes Keyarga realize that, except for the unquestioning devotion toward him, the former princess’s personality hasn’t changed much. In episode 8, Keyarga might meet the Demon Lord again, whose Philosopher’s Stone helped him revert time.
