Berserk: The Golden Age Arc Episode 8 will display one of the pivotal points in the story as Guts have grown as a person who will be going his way in life. Though not as important as the moment in the story where Griffith wouldn’t call anyone his equal for not having ambition, the coming events are the aftermath of it. Guts have looked at Griffith with revelation and respect him in every possible way. But he also wants Griffith to acknowledge him as a person who is worthy of being at his side no matter what the situation.
The Band of the Hawks has done what hadn’t been done in a hundred years and earned the nobility in the midland. Everyone was happy to see their effort finally paying off until Guts’ intention to leave the band came to light. He told of this to Casca indirectly while Judeau figured it out himself. The remaining band is standing in the way of stopping him from leaving, and even Griffith will be there to stop him. But we know where it will lead.
Berserk: The Golden Age Arc Episode 8 Spoilers
Berserk: The Golden Age Arc Episode 8 will show us Griffith and his irony of ideals. He does not look at anyone as his equal, not even Guts, and has ambitions that defy the era he lives in. He wants everything and everyone to be their object of praise and center of being. However, he does not realize he has always made an exception for Guts. While he thinks of everyone else as a comrade in arms and is haunted by those who died along the way, with Guts, he would let go of that guilt and do everything in his power to have him.
We will see Guts and Griffith have the fateful fight where the future of the two will be set in stone to the point of no return. Guts will go his way and find out what he wants to be, leaving a broken Griffith who is too late to realize what Guts meant for him. This will lead to a cascade of events that will see the band of hawks turns fugitives by the actions taken by Griffith. What awaits ahead is tragedy and despair for every member in the coming episodes.
