Violet Evergarden, with each passing day, she gets stronger and stronger. Violet Evergarden Episode 9 was like watching Violet becoming supergirl and fighting.
Violet’s super girl move
One day at the office, Violet overhears Hodgins & Cattleya talking about this letter request from a military campsite. Hodgins keeping in mind the safety of his Auto Memories Dolls and knowing very well how challenging the battle grounds are decides to take a pass on it. But it’s almost as if the soldier in Violet awoke to it and decide to take a shot.
Next day, Violet’s missing from the office and so is the letter request envelope. She decides to go to the campgrounds, as she understands how difficult it is for the soldiers and it could be someones wish to send in a letter to their loved one in such a time.
Violet at the battlefield
It’s absolutely awesome to see her go all out for an assignment, which wasn’t even technically given to her. It just goes to show that she truly cares about the work she does and thats absolutely beautiful. She somehow manages to convince the delivery service out there too to deliver her to the camp grounds, which apparently are tough to get to. And so, the postal service, all motivated by Violet’s determination to do her job, takes her out on a plane. Once they are right above the camp grounds though they see how they’re a little too late maybe, since all the soldiers have been shot.
Violet, with her parachute on, jumps nonetheless.
Somehow just in time to reach Mr Aiden, who requested her. Although he has been shot, she reaches and single handedly fights off the enemy. They too are aware of the little dynamite that she is on the battle field and knowing that they aren’t a match, they leave.
Violet takes Aidan to a den, tucks him in a warm blanket and hopes that they will be picked up by the time its morning. Although, Aiden knows he won’t make it through the night and wants her to write the letter right away. He writes a letter to his parents & one to his lovely childhood friend, Maria. Maria who he is in love with him, Maria, who he didn’t even get a chance to kiss in this lifetime.
Violet does as requested and takes the letters back to Aidan’s parents the next day. Both, the parents & Maria are deeply shook and upset to hear the news about Aidan’s passing.
Just as Violet decides to leave, Maria stops her to thank her for getting them the letters. That’s when it hits her, how deeply sorry she is that she couldn’t save him. How she let him die at the battleground. It feels as though she’s reliving the loss and grief she probably felt about the Major. About how she couldn’t keep the Major alive.
