    Episode 1

    She survived. Now it's time to thrive.

    Pretty much, this episode is all about getting reacquainted with the cast as everybody has been through a lot over the course of the first season. Now that Catarina has cleared the game, it's onto the next phase where this time she doesn't have the benefit of the game to know exactly what to avoid. There's trouble on the horizon, but for now she's just enjoying herself as the school is putting on its festival, and she's talking to all the friends she made. It's nice to get back into this show, and while the first episode was pretty vanilla, it does the job of getting to know the cast again.

      Episode 2

      My next life playing the villainess.

      And Catarina is a villainess. Or rather, she's playing the role as she's filling in for somebody who was supposed to play it for a school festival play, but she got hurt and Catarina steps in at the last minute to fill in the role. Things went way off script after her cheat sheet fell off the fan, but even so it was a huge hit, and seeing that Catarina showed off her acting skills that she might consider pursuing an acting career. Just when things were looking up for her, that ending pretty much threw everything out the window as she got kidnapped. A doom flag was bound to be raised, and here it is, the first postgame flag.

        Episode 3

        The butler did it.

        Catarina got kidnapped, but it turns out that Selena just needed a friends like her more than anything. Catarina is treated like royalty while a prisoner in Selena's luxurious abode, so at least she's in a great place. Selena is in love with Ian and she orchestrated the kidnapping in order to make Geordo renounce the throne so that Ian can ascend to it. But while things are all well and good between Catarina and Selena, it turns out that Selena's butler Rufus has the power of mind control, and whatever his scheme is, Catarina is in quite a bind. It was pretty obvious that Rufus was up to no good after seeing his power, and it will be interesting to see what kind of evil scheme he has in store, and what this means for Catarina realizing that a doom flag has been raised.

          Going beyond the borders.

          So it turns out that Rufus, also known as Sora, was living in the slums as a youth, but found his way to becoming Selena's butler, and it all started when a nobleman visited him in the slums. They were just like father and son there, but sadly he passed away due to an illness for which only those with wealth could afford treatment for. Even so, Sora was just going too far in making advances towards Catarina, and he would have stolen her first kiss had it not been for her empty stomach. Instead, that honor goes to Geordo as thanks to Lana, who is actually a professor at the academy, finding her and arriving just in the nick of time. In the end, Catarina made to promise to Sora, and it's a good thing Catarina realized that the pinky swear doesn't exist in this place. So in the end, nothing terrible happened, and Sora wasn't exactly bad news, but it came close to being a dire situation. So with that problem resolved, she manages to survive the first doom flag, though there are quite a lot more ahead, and she doesn't have the knowledge of the game to figure out what not to do.

            Episode 5

            Brothers in succession.

            After Geordo stole Catarina's first kiss, she needs to be convinced that the kiss wasn't just a dream. Case in point, the second kiss there at the end is all the proof that's needed to let Catarina know that the kiss was the real deal. While that's going on, Geordo and Alan talk about their backstory and how they ended up becoming close out of necessity to prevent opportunistic scum from seizing the throne in the midst of a succession crisis. Geordo and Alan couldn't be any more different as Geordo had it all, while Alan, not so much. But despite what others thing, they are not rivals for the throne. Quite a nice backstory that was going to show that despite the fact that only one of the bros can become the next king, those two agree that the person better for the job should get it.

              Episode 6

              Gather around the fire.

              It's summer, and Catarina gets an invite to Geordo's family vacation home where everybody has gathered. Catarina is in a bind seeing that her carefree lifestyle would end if she married into royalty. And then a sudden downpour causes her and the other girls to scramble and take shelter inside a cottage where they are telling stories. In particular, something like this happened years ago when they were just little kids. They were engaged in a courage test and were looking for a ghost inside a forest, but it turns out that the ghost was none other than Catarina's mother, who is none too please that she's climbing trees again. Imagination really ran wild there with that knight and witch part. So after all that, its back to the mansion for a fireworks celebration. Quite a silly episode that was seeing that everything lines up exactly as it was years ago, and these girls have an amazing sense of imagination.

                Episode 7

                No playing around in this dollhouse.

                And now, Catarina and friends go on a wild adventure off to dreamland where thanks to a wish-granting dollhouse, they are living as somebody else. At first it looks all well and good, but they soon realize that this is not exactly the place they want to be in. So to reverse the damage, Catarina and friends go after the doll and all it took was a simple pull of the key and everybody is back to being themselves. Quite a crazy adventure that was, especially in Keith's dream where everybody is gender-swapped as it's just funny to see everything going down.

                  Episode 8

                  Everybody loves Catarina.

                  And now, an episode focused on Nicol as with his position, he's being pressured into an arranged marriage with Frey. Neither Nicol nor Frey feel comfortable with going through with this marriage, and after talking things through the two mutually agree to call off their marriage. It's a good thing that times have changed to the point where Nicol doesn't face the same expectations of getting married at his age as in the past. Not to mention, Catarina is being quite helpful once again in letting those two realize that they want to make sure things are just right before going through with such a big decision. And for that, the amount of admirers has grown.

                    Episode 9

                    Where have you gone, brother?

                    While Catarina escaped any doom flags, now it's Keith who is raising them as he goes missing. Catarina thinks that she said something to his brother, but that's not it at all. So she gets gets some help from Susanna and her talking bear plush Alexander to help locate Keith. As it turns out, Keith was kidnapped by somebody he knows and is not exactly fond of, and he is being held hostage by somebody named Thomas. All of the sudden, things have gotten quite serious here seeing that for the most part, Catarina was able to just enjoy herself having cleared the main game. But now she realizes that Keith is in danger, and it will be interesting to see just who those bastards that kidnapped him are and how he knows them.

                      Episode 10

                      All not in the family.

                      So it turns out that the one who kidnapped Keith is his biological mother, and Catarina and Keith are not truly brother and sister by blood. Nevertheless, while Catarina understandably found Alexander to be annoying, this just isn't the time or place to pull off that prank of dropping those stick things on it seeing that the bear got his revenge dropping those things on her while she was sleeping. And then there was that nightmare that Catarina that was all the proof that she needed to realize that Keith was kidnapped and didn't just run out because he had a falling out with her. And then Larna finds out that dark magic is at work here, so this has evolved into quite a serious situation here. It will be interesting to see how Catarina gets out of this mess and return home with Keith back with the family he belongs to.

                        Episode 11

                        Barking up the right tree.

                        And so, Catarina and company manage to find where Keith is being held captive, inside a secret room where a dark snake is holding him captive. But thanks to a relic that Geordo gave Catarina, she frees Keith. Afterwards, Keith kisses Catarina, meaning that now she's at the center of a love triangle with Geordo and now Keith, who is not Catarina's brother by blood making it perfectly legitimate. And that shadow snake that was picked apart by Catarina? It's now Catarina's familiar as it takes the form of a dog and is quite attached to her that here's just no way it can be examined. Quite a bizarre sequence of events that was after freeing Keith as it was one ironic thing after another. One more episode left to go.
