Episode 6 is hardly eventful and the ending barely teases the audience for more.
This recap of Netflix anime series B: The Beginning season 2, episode 6 — the ending explained — contains spoilers.
The ending of Season 2, known as “Succession”, is platforming for what’s to come. Episode 6 opens with Keith out in the water, his body resting on a plank. He believes he’s screwed up and felt like he could go further; he believes it’s only a matter of time now — but there’s hope as Koku finds him. His temperature is low and he’s struggling to breathe; he asks Lily to head over as soon as possible. Meanwhile, The King and Kirisame reveal their plans to continue to use Reggies and Canon, believing they can have a symbiotic relationship.
And then episode 6 offers a brief respite as Lily and Keith reunite.
In the hospital, Keith finally wakes up, and Lily is at his side. He doesn’t feel so good; Lily has gotten him some food and insists that he eats it. Keith tells Lily that the King and Kirisame have been plotting together this whole time. Lily explains that RIS is still after “Killer B”. The scene flits to a lead, but they have the wrong person, and “Killer B” strikes again.
Koku calls for Kirisame
Kirisame believes he’s being called out by Koku after the latest news report of the confirmed kill and heads out for a confrontation. He meets him at the top of the fort. Kirisame tells Koku that he understands his power, and Yukikaze’s hypothesis is correct; no matter what threat he faces, he always manages to survive. He tells him he wasn’t supposed to win against Asagiri as she’s a next-gen model born from the research at Jaula Blanca.
Kirisame admires Koku’s power and adaptability and calls him the “true King”; he wonders if he will join him. Koku tells him they are going to walk their own path. Koku and Kirisame face each other, and it’s a showdown. They fight each other, but before there’s a conclusion, Season 2 ends.
B: The Beginning season 2, episode 6 is hardly eventful and the ending barely teases the audience for more; the cliffhanger feels to be placed in the wrong moment. After waiting for so long after season 1, this feels like a disappointing ending.
