“His Butler, Sneering”
The episode where everybody fell in love with Ciel’s dad because whoa, what a hottie.
So we finally learn the history of how Kelvin came to be the messed up man he is and much of it has to do with when he first met Vincent Phantomhive and his son at a very lavish party, the like of which he would never have even dreamed of attending had he not been invited to it. He was charmed and enraptured almost immediately by the upper class extravagance and their lush lifestyles, and became obsessed with wanting to be a part of it. He developed quite a sick and sycophantic attitude towards the beautiful Vincent Phantomhive (who just so happens to look not just a little bit like Sebastian so I’m wondering whether Ciel was projecting when he called upon Sebastian even though their relationship really isn’t like father and son AT ALL) and his even more adorable son Ciel, who was an absolute heartstopper – oh my goodness, he was SO CUTE. And this obsession ended up twisting his mind and made him seek out surgeries to make him more attractive.
He was devastated when he learnt of the Phantomhive’s deaths, but vowed to seek out and find Ciel and be ‘worthy’ of him, in whatever sick way he meant. After hearing all this, a traumatised and enraged Ciel shoots Kelvin in the chest while Sebastian holds Joker back. But Joker smugly tells them that the rest of the circus group have gone to his home, intent on killing everyone there, including his fiancé, Elizabeth – kill her for all I care, seriously – but we all know that the Phantomhive servants are not to be taken lightly.
Finny, Meirin, Baldroy and even Tanaka show just how badass they are, but I think Tanaka takes the cake as the coolest servant of all as he happily tells Elizabeth to go back to sleep while the dead and bleeding body of one of the circus group lies behind him. The three of them dispose of Joker’s gang one by one and Elizabeth is completely oblivious to it all.
Meanwhile, Grell, who has just been taken off probation, comes by the Phantomhive home, taking the souls of the circus kids until the very last one.
