The Duke of Death and His Maid Episode 5 Spoilers
In episode 4 titled “The Duke, Alice, and Memories of Snow” or “Botchan to Arisu to Yuki no Kioku,” Alice ignores Bocchan, who begins to suspect that something is wrong with her. It turns that she has a fever, and Bocchan decides to give her moral support and to be by her side. Later, when it snows, they make snowmen and play with each other without a care in the world.
However, when they return to the mansion, Alice notices that her mother’s earrings are missing. Unable to see her worried, Bocchan later goes outside alone to look for it and meets a witch named Caph, who is searching for her friend. She uses fire to melt the ice and finds the earrings immediately. Later, when they return to the mansion, Caph explains that she is half-human and half-witch.
After spending her entire life shunned by both species, she now only trusts her friend. But she abruptly leaves when Bocchan remarks that she appears to be fond of her friend. In episode 5, titled “The Duke, a Crow, and Ice Skating” or “Botchan to Karasu to Aisu Sukēto,” Bocchan and Alice may get closer and, with all the snow, probably plan to go for ice skating together.
