While the entire episode is thrilling from start to finish, the storytelling peaks in the last few minutes as viewers connect various dots from this season.

We recap the Crunchyroll anime series Bungo Stray Dogs Season 4 Episode 13, “Skyfall,” which contains spoilers and explains the Ending.

Fyodor’s (Akira Ishida) plan came to light last week as Atsushi (Yuto Uemura) and Kyoka infiltrated the Sky Casino. Now it’s up to the Armed Detective Agency to clear their name and stop The Decay of Angela from successfully launching a terrorist attack on the entire world.

As if circumstances weren’t bad enough already, the only way to save the Armed Detective Agency, and the world, maybe to team up with the last group anyone expected: The Hunting Dogs.

Bungo Stray Dogs Season 4 Episode 13 Recap

As they run down the casino halls, Teruko reminds Tachihara that, as police, they must not attack civilians.

Teruko and Tachihara escape their pursuers using her gift, Gasp of the Soul. Teruko’s gift allows her to manipulate the age of anyone she touches.

She uses it to turn herself into an old woman and Tachihara into a child as they slip past the attacking guests.

Why can’t Sigma afford to lose the Sky Casino?

As they talk in Mersault, Fyodor tells Dazai that Sigma cannot afford to lose the Sky Casino because they are true equals.

In the same way, the Sky Casino was written into existence 13 days before using a notebook page, and Sigma was “born” three years earlier and utilized a notebook page.

Does Sigma kill Teruko?

Realizing he cannot save himself and the Sky Casino, Sigma opts to jump off the casino while holding Teruko instead. As they plummet to their deaths, Teruko finds enough strength to push herself away from Sigma and grab onto the side of the casino, saving herself.

Atsushi then uses a rope to grab Sigma, saving him as well.

How does Lucy capture Nathanial Hawthorne?

As Ango and Atsushi try to negotiate with Sigma, they are attacked by Nathanial Hawthorne. He knocks them off the Sky Casino, where Sigma chooses to fall to his death to save Atsushi from having to support both of their weight.

Just then, Lucy jumps down and uses her gift to transport Atsushi to Anne’s Chamber. Although Nathanial still manages to follow them there with his gift, once inside the chamber, Lucy is able to capture him.

Why did Fyodor really want the Armed Detective Agency and the Hunting Dogs at the Sky Casino?

Dazai soon finds out that Fyodor has again distracted him, this time with the exploding coins.

He realizes that Fyodor wanted the Armed Detective Agency and the Hunting Dogs at the Sky Casino to ruin any chances at an alliance, as he had already written into the notebook that no law enforcement would believe Armed Detective Agency’s innocence even with proof.

Did Tachihara kill Yosano? 

After watching a video that proves the Armed Detective Agency’s innocence and brushing it off, Tachihara is told to return to his post as a member of the Port Mafia. He begins feeling strange, wondering if he is cut out for the job.

As he reminisces on why he agreed to infiltrate them in the first place, he remembers sparing Yosano’s life because he joined the mafia to become someone, not to avenge his brother.

It is only after this revelation, along with the support of the other Port Mafia members, that Tachihara can realize he was tricked into believing the Armed Detective Agency were terrorists.

The episode ends with Signma seeing Nikolai waiting to save him as he falls.

If this episode didn’t feel quite like it wrapped up this arc in a neat little bow, that’s probably because it didn’t. While it was easily one of the most captivating episodes of the season, especially as it unraveled Fyodor’s plan and a way to beat him, it felt a bit like it was ending in the middle of a fight. A few episodes back, I began to feel as though this season would end on a cliffhanger, and I was partially right. It seems this is only the beginning, with Bungo Stray Dogs announcing the continuation of this arc in July 2023 with season five.

As a bridge between seasons, this finale delivered. I was satisfied enough with the answers and character development I received. It gave me everything I needed while leaving me with enough questions to make me want to return.
