In our last recap, city slicker Tidus discovered what it’s like to be utterly alone (apart from giant fish monsters, ghosts in trippy flashbacks and the odd judgmental seagull). I ended the post with Tidus staggering about with 6HP in a boss fight, thanks to some idiot who forgot to save.
Keep in mind that apart from a quick nap, Tidus has just lived through a full day ending with a blitzball tournament, his entire city and all his friends being exterminated, his first taste of combat, getting sucked into Sin’s sphincter for a traumatizing encounter with Dad, a couple of boss battles and a fetch quest in a cold, wet, dark ruined temple. I’m always impressed by how Final Fantasy characters seem to careen from one life-threatening crisis to the next on next to no sleep.
Also, he missed out on two dinner dates, so he’s hungry enough to eat a sahagin.
Later. Now it’s time for him to gulp a Potion and meet the grease monkeys of Spira.
