Overlord Season 4 Episode 11 “Well-prepared Traps” just finished airing and they truly had us in the first half, who could’ve known that it was Pandora’s Actor all along, the entire battle was a trap set by Lord Ainz to measure the strength of his opponents and it seems he may have overestimated his foes, which isn’t a surprise. Lord Ainz is always cautious and well-prepared, he knows how to set a perfect trap.
But that doesn’t mean the episode wasn’t fun to watch, it was incredible to see Lord Ainz actually move around a bit and use weapons for once, we truly thought that he was using his powers to the max when he couldn’t escape through the barrier or when he tried to reason with his foe instead of exterminating them like a bug.
Also, it was nice that they gave a somewhat important role to Shalltear Bloodfallen, she rescued all the people who pledged their allegiance to Lord Ainz, I wonder what happened to the convict who she dragged with him, perhaps he’s dead.
And was anyone even surprised when Albedo beat the life out of the red Gundam in one punch? She held back because she might’ve accidentally killed him with a single blow, which was also a dead giveaway that Albedo would try to make the fight longer instead of rushing back to aid Lord Ainz.
The Platinum Dragon actually believed that he had a chance to defeat Lord Ainz but he’s not to blame, his powers may be enough to take down Pandora’s Actor, but he doesn’t hold a candle to the real deal.
‘Overlord’ Season 4 Episode 12 Release Date
Overlord Season 4 Episode 12 will be released on September 20th, 2022, any further details about the episode such as previews and the additional plot will be revealed sometime soon, I’ll be sure to update the page once the previews and additional information are released on the official website.
Lord Ainz’s main goal was to recruit the Platinum Dragon; however, his continued refusal may have pissed him off and the next episode might as well be his funeral, but let’s no come to a conclusion just yet. We don’t know what he might do next and that is the beauty of Overlord.
It also raises the question that what is he planning to do with those people he rescued from the Kingdom.
Where To Watch Overlord Season 4 Episode 12
The only legal place where you can watch Overlord is Crunchyroll, they offer a simulcast service so you can watch the episodes as soon as they are released. However, Crunchyroll doesn’t support all regions of the world so if you’re from those countries, I suggest you look for an alternative source for watching these series.
You can try watching the series on Bilibli, which is another amazing streaming service that I don’t personally use but I’ve heard lots of people do, so you might want to try that.
