Now to the stuff involving Deep Connect and the girl, it was really good. For starters, I like the fact that Deep Connect's President Bills didn't play the villain in front of Takeru and his crew. He acts like that concerned president who just wants Igor and his men out of his company. Even though it is obvious that he is still under Igor's spell, it furthers the plot involving Deep Connect and how they are tied in to Igor in a really significant manner. It diverts all suspicion to their activities in the company, making it harder for Takeru to crack what the Ganma are planning.
When we first meet Alain, he's that cold Ganma general who is doing what his father asked him to do. By the time we reached at this point in the series, Alain has developed into one of the most human characters in the series. Him struggling to understand emotion and that scene in the funeral added more layers to this already interesting character. Thanks to Takeru and what he just witnessed, he realized that dead does not mean the end to that person. It just means that his body expired, but a person's heart, soul, and influence will forever touch the ones he or she met, and that's what happened to Grandma Fumi.
The first time he met Grandma Fumi, he hostile towards her, but she keeps on opening up. At the time Alain was at his lowest, Grandma Fumi gave him advice that changed his outlook about life, and as seen in the latest episode, Grandma Fumi also gave him some great advice on how to start over. With a little encouragement coming from Takeru, Makoto, and Kanon, Alain wears the clothes that Grandma Fumi gave him, and starts kicking ass.
Thankfully, Takeru and Makoto arrived just in time for the most meaningful triple Rider transformation scene in the show. This is a triple Rider transformation that feels earned. Alain's moment earlier showed us that he finally earned his Kamen Rider stripes, he is not anymore the villain and he finally realized the reason why he will continue on fighting. He wants to protect the beauty of this planet, and one day, bring this same beauty to his world. It's a really wonderful scene, and finally, I don't see three Kamen Riders in name, but Kamen Riders both in name and in spirit.
As revealed in Kamen Rider Necrom's debut, the suit is being powered by Ganma energy and Alain can just casually absorb said energy back when he was still a Ganma officer. Fast forward to this episode and Alain was able to power the suit without the need of external Ganma energy. He just did it on his own, his fighting spirit and his will to fight powered up the suit in its maximum that it continued to glow before the three Riders performed the Triple Rider Kick finisher. This exact moment culminated all of Alain's character development into one single move. He is not anymore bounding himself to his own limits, because if he can go beyond and destroy said limits.
