Vibrating Hearts- Sailor Moon Crystal 18 -MS 16

Sono and Ammit discuss the latest Sailor Moon Crystal. There is a deeper level of humanity to this set of alien invaders. What are Wiseman’s secrets? How did he emasculate Prince Demande? Is he some sort of traitor or infiltrator? What’s the deal with Mamoru and his ghost guys? How is Mamoru suddenly super-powered?

That certainly is a name for an attack. I'd like to know the reasoning behind it.
