Ep 3 Screenshots! *SPOILERS these are real*

I love you Sakuya!

Oh Hermito!

Image
I love you too!

THIS is the moment I waited for! Thank you Quantum! YOU WERE AWESOME.

Episode Details
 Data bugs are everywhere in the game...think back to before the last battle against Morganna in Quarantine. Orca-like player gets a cameo. Apparently there's an airship root town in R:X. Hermit is soo badass in this ep...he deletes a player and cuts a part of the airship's deck off, sending several players to their deaths. Apparently, you can jump off cliffs in this game and survive...as Sakuya demonstrates. Now, Hermit is talked about in the end...his actions have a lot to do with the end. Mary does wake up, as expected but her role is rather small. All in all, a VERY SATISFYING conclusion...and you know that gun cannon in the distance we saw in the G.U. games? They actually use it as a Data Drain cannon! I watched the episode without subtitles, so sorry if the spoilers aren't that revealing...it's unclear if Hermit is an AI or not. He's very Sora-like in this episode.

The airship isn't a root town, it's part of the event.

Shamrock is Pi, not Aina. Hence Tarvos.

Hermit is  a terminally ill Japanese-American who was put into cryogenic suspension but then his mind was removed to virtual prison (used to house prisoners serving lifetime sentences in 2022) so he could be used as a quantum computer. It's unclear specifically why, but an unknown mastermind put him into The World with the ability to manipulate data in order to further their own ends. The New Epitaph would lead us to believe this is the organization mama. But outside of that, all of the anomalies that happened in Quantum were caused by either his search for a donor or his subsequent tantrum.

Dunno how well this agrees with the fansub...

Wait... When did they say/show Tarvos?

Your spoiler is pretty much what the fansub came up with. I'm not sure what The New Epitaph is, though.

Epitaph of New Testament is an information book that came with the .hack//Link Zette Hour Pack. It details some background information behind the end of the .hack series. Mama is an organization mentioned in the book. Tarvos never physically appeared but Reiko still holds her character's Epitaph Data and stored it in Shamrock. Shamrock has the same Epitaph Patterns as Pi. (Episode 2 - 3)

Zettai houi = "Quarantine"

We see all anyone besides an epitaph user ever sees of Tarvos. The main character is a normal player, not Haseo, so the perspective is different. Just like when we played as Kite and couldn't see our own bracelet.
