Needless: Contradiction?

Currently finished: Episode 20

Yes, yes, I know I've been slacking off blogging. But lots have been happening in my real life, and real life matters always trump anime blogging. :-) What matters is that now I'm back in full power, expect lots of blog posts in next couple of days. Now back to the real topic...

Unlike previous episodes, this episode does not have any of those goofy fan service heavy scenes nor does it have any jokes that breaks the 4th wall which we're so accustom to by now. For the most part, this episode talks about the the back story that caused everything to become what it is right now.

The problem, is that something in this back story contradicts part of the background information that we've come to assume all this time. I hope they're not pulling a bait-and-switch on the back story and say "Surprise! What we've told you ain't true, this is the real back story." In my opinion, that is not much better than a Dues Ex Machina ending which is the worst plot devices I hate.
