Shadows House: Kate Aims for the Stars to Combat Coffee Empty Shadows House: Kate Aims for the Stars to Combat Coffee

周四 8月 18, 2022 5:26 pm
Kate and Emilico set their sights on becoming Star Bearers in Season 2, Episode 2 of Shadows House.

Season 1 of Shadows House introduced the creepy properties of coffee. Normal coffee can be unhealthy when consumed excessively, but coffee laced with soot is downright dangerous. It has no effect on the Shadows, but it can brainwash Living Dolls into being mindlessly loyal to Lord Grandfather. There are only a few ways to reverse the brainwashing: the first is to either drink copious amounts of water to throw up the coffee again, or take a page out of John's book and punch it out of the system (while effective, this is not recommended).

Even though fans already got a sense of how powerful coffee can be, Season 2 Episode 2 ups the creepy factor. Not only do the Dolls get obsessively loyal to the Shadows House, but they lose all sense of individuality. The coffee truly renders them into Living Dolls, removing their ability to think for themselves.

So far, Emilico and Shaun are the only ones who have broken free of the coffee-induced brainwashing -- Lou and Ricky are still under its effects. While the way Emilico and Shaun broke out of the brainwashing was effective, it turns out there's another way to break the spell: if enough time passes, it'll eventually wear off and Lou and Ricky will be back to normal. Emilico can see a tiny bit of this when she talks to Lou and the latter admonishes her lightly for thinking about "trivial matters."

Episode 2 of Shadows House's second season is a testament to how much Emilico has grown since Season 1. When she first started cleaning with the other Living Dolls, her companions dove straight into singing a cleaning song. From her naive perspective, it seemed like a wonderful way to feel like she belonged. But in retrospect, now knowing what the Shadows House and adults are capable of, the song isn't as innocently cheerful anymore.

Now that Emilico and Shaun know the truth about the coffee, they're in more danger than before. There is a 'rejoicing party' once a week where the Star Bearers distribute a set amount of coffee to the Living Dolls who have come of age. For the ones who think coffee is a treat, it truly is a moment to rejoice and celebrate -- but for Dolls like Emilico and Shaun, it's a horrifying notion to grapple with. This is how the Living Dolls continue to be controlled and how the Shadows House will grow its power.

Because viewers are seeing everything from Emilico's naive and optimistic perspective, they get the full brunt of the cult-ish nature of the Dolls' chant. All the Dolls become utterly enamored with the Shadows family, singing praises and promising to be their "tools". It's even more terrifying when they start chanting that "As their faces, we can belong to our masters." They're willing, grateful even, to subject their entire selves -- body and mind -- to their Shadow masters. This is only the beginning of unification between Shadow and Doll.

Emilico was told early on to not think about trivial things and to spend her energy on caring for the Shadows family. It was meant to be admonishment but in actuality, this rule is to prevent the Dolls from retaining their humanity. As horrifying as it is, the rejoicing party gave a lot of valuable information to Kate. Because the Dolls can only be given a spoonful, the coffee's effects don't last very long -- hence why it must be given on a regular basis. And because they only get a spoonful, that means there is a restriction on how much soot-laced coffee can be produced.

Since the Star Bearers are the only ones who have access to the coffee, Kate and Emilico must aim to join them if they want any chance of fighting against the Shadows House. However, Kate is garnering a lot of suspicion from both the adults and the other Star Bearers even though she hasn't even put her plan of rebellion into effect yet. Their bid for the stars may be a lot more challenging than they realize when Shadows House continues.
