In Episode 11, unfastened ends start to come back collectively as Kimihiko Kimizuka begins piecing collectively what actually occurred to his companion, Siesta, on that fateful day he misplaced her. Throughout a brutal combat towards SPES operant Chameleon, Kimihiko begins to remember his final dialog with Siesta on the battlefield a 12 months prior.
After Hel succeeded in stealing Siesta’s coronary heart and putting it into their very own physique, a grief-stricken Kimihiko tried to assault her assassin. He was quickly stopped when he heard the acquainted voice of his deceased companion rising from the lips of their sworn enemy. Having taken management of Hel’s physique, Siesta communicated what her recreation plan was to Kimihiko from the beginning.
Previous to assembly Kimihiko on an airplane three years in the past, Siesta knew about Hel and Alicia. She additionally knew that to be able to cease SPES and save Alicia, Siesta must work out a option to suppress Alicia’s extra villainous alter ego.

Since Siesta’s coronary heart is tailored to comprise her consciousness, this is able to enable her to infiltrate Hel’s physique and subdue their persona. Siesta, after all, didn’t talk any of this to Kimihiko previous to working with him, which understandably upset him. Having fallen in love with Siesta by this level, Kimihiko felt it was merciless of her to make such a significant choice on her personal life by herself. Naturally, Siesta knew he would attempt to cease her from finishing her activity if he knew the total extent of her long-term plan.

With The Detective Is Already Useless‘s express affirmation that Nagisa and Hel are one and the identical, and that Siesta can “pilot” her physique at any time, this has vital implications about Siesta’s personal origins. Contemplating how Alicia was experimented on to the purpose the place she ended up with a physique that may actually change look, it’s totally potential Siesta herself was additionally experimented on by SPES.
