Setting up the third Endless Eight episode to be the end of the "Groundhog Day" Loop only to end it with nothing resolved leaving it to a fourth episode. Not particularly funny in the show but the reactions of people watching seems to have cemented Kyoani's Kadokawa's status as master level trolls.
- Imagine the reactions if it goes to a fifth!
- It did.
- I bet on August 30th to be the day of the solution to the loop.
- Maybe it'll end this week? Please?
- Dude, Not Funny!.
- IT'S DONE. =D
- Also, Itsuki's explanation of what's going on in the third "Endless Eight" episode:
Itsuki: "We've entered an endless recursion of time."
(epic voice) "Restrain thyself! Dost thou not see the No Diving sign!?"
(sleepy) "The number you have tried to reach has been dis— Gah!" *Juggles phone*
"So, I come up behind Haruhi and say 'I lo— eeuuurgh'!"
(sipping Mikuru's tea) "It's strawberry-licious!"
"My turn! I summon my 'veto' card!"
