I open this issue to work on this episode. Following @craigmaloney advice (to sum up, correct me if I make a mistake Craig, there is not enough link between the plot twist and what happen during the episode, it is like "A and B are talking, talking, talking - OH LOOK A PLOT TWIST").
So here a first proposition to work on that:
We follow Saffron going into the temple, and we follow what she sees. Saffron spies Shichimi doing some curious and strange things, hidden in a room, with a lot of books and potions. Saffron enters the room, Shichimi panics and tries to hide what she's doing. Saffron justifies her visit with a "Oh, I just wanted to know what you are doing", which is very doubtful for Shichimi (the Temple is not allowed for strangers). While Shichimi wanted more info about her presence and how she succeed to enter, Saffron looks at all the elements she can see to try to guess what Shichimi does (potions and books used). When Saffron tries to see inside the cauldron of Shichimi, it is the physical fight. Saffron launches a fire spell to make Shichimi going away from the cauldron. But the egg inside hatches, and reveals the dragon. Saffron is suddenly very happy, because she believes that Shichimi does that for her birthday, and she didn't forget!(the true reason of her visit).
(sorry for english mistakes if any ^^)
Do you think it is better?
