The Case Study of Vanitas Season 2 Episode 20 Recap
This episode is titled “mal d’amour” which translates to lovesick or incurable disease. This is a reference to how Vanitas feels about his emotions towards Jeanne, he reacts as if he had gotten an incurable and everlasting illness that will forever ruin his life. This episode shows a huge contrast between him trying to figure out what’s going on with Olivier and Roland in a café while Jeanne is eating away happily with Luca and Dominique. Jeanne upon realizing she is in love considers it a gentle and lovely emotion that she believed she could never feel, however, Vanitas sees it as something evil and extremely terrifying though the reason why is yet to be stated.

The simplest reasoning would be that he believes that love would be a distraction as he carries out his missions and that he might be annoyed at himself for bringing in something that could disrupt his work at the same time it could also be considered that he is frightened that falling in love with Jeanne is something far worse than what has already happened to him. It may be that he doesn’t want to be sidetracked with love after it is confirmed that he doesn’t have long to live due to the blue tattoo on his hand.
The story is yet to reveal what happened to the vampire of the blue moon or any of his other students if any however from the previous episodes it can be concluded that Vanitas has done things alone.
It is mentioned during the final few minutes of the episode that a vampire has been attacking humans since the duo, Vanitas and Noe left for Gévaudan, and that this vampire is their next possible foe. But it is revealed that Dominique is non-other than the vampire and that she is being controlled. A small child seems to be controlling her and he has especially chosen Dominique because she is close to Noe.
