Haven't watched the current episode, but it's had good moments and memorable character actions such as that time Rena hacked off Rina's limbs or a cop pissing on a shrine to frame a random criminal.
The only problem I have with it is that they keep reusing scenes from last season, other than that I've been enjoying it a lot.
It's finally caught up. In terms of repetitiveness I think that if I were to ever watch this again I'd end up skipping to the flashback arc of Gou since there's not much else to it that Sotsu doesn't also cover with more detail. However I do think there was merit to Gou in the first place since the initial big reveal was a pretty huge thing.
When it comes to thinking about Sotsu there wasn't really any point to theorizing about what Satoko would do since we already knew what was going to happen, that's why it's the answer arc. What probably was the better thing to think about was the Umineko/Ciconia connection and what Featherine is actually up to.
I see you haven't kept up with your Umineko>>944>>945
