Why did Puck disappear in the second season of Re:Zero?

rezero

In the second season of Re:Zero, Subaru and Emilia went to the forest known as the 'Sanctuary' to help Rem, who had her name and memories eaten by Lye Batenkaitos. Puck appeared in front of Subaru, who was concerned about Rem, since he had not been seen by Emilia and Subaru. Puck didn’t answer Emilia's questions either.

To begin with, Puck is basically inactive at night, but since Emilia and Subaru arrived at the sanctuary, he hadn't been seen even during the day.

Question

Why did Puck stop coming out at the sanctuary?

Was there a connection between Puck not showing up and Emilia's challenge to the ordeals of the witch of greed, Echidna, in the sanctuary?

The conversation between Puck and Subaru had a profound meaning.

rezero-puck

When Puck last appeared in front of Subaru, Puck told Subaru to take care of Lia. From this point on, we can assume that Puck had decided not to appear in front of Emilia.

Puck's non-appearance had a lot to do with the "ordeal" that Emilia and Subaru were facing in the sanctuary.

Why Puck is gone and not coming out?

rezero-puck

Point

It has to do with the content of the contract between Emilia and Puck.

The first ordeal Emilia has to take on in the sanctuary is 'Face your past’.  In this ordeal, Emilia will need to face her past.

In fact, the contract between Emilia and Puck stated that Puck can decide what Emilia will wear and how she will do her hair that day. However, this is Puck's hidden intention to prevent Emilia from facing her past.

Emilia's Past

rezero-puck

More than 100 years ago, Emilia lived peacefully in a place called the Great Forest of Elior, but the village was suddenly attacked by Pandora, a false witch, and Emilia's village was destroyed.

Emilia lost her family and used her magic to successfully fight off Pandora, but she trapped the village and herself in ice. 

rezero-emilia

Point!

Emilia was saved from the ice by Puck a hundred years after that incident. 

At this time, Puck encapsulated Emilia's painful memories. This caused Emilia to lose her memories of the past.

However, in the first trial in the Sanctuary, Emilia must face her own past. This was why her contract with Puck, which sealed her past, had become a hindrance. In the original light novel, there was a conversation between Puck and Subaru that illustrates this.

Puck: "No, Subaru. The loss of the contract with me is just a byproduct of Lia's wish to pass the ordeal.

Puck:There's no doubt that what Lia wants right now is to get through the 'ordeal' of the sanctuary.
There's no need to doubt that, and you can trust her.

Will Puck come out at the end of the second anime season?

 

rezero-crystal

When Puck canceled his contract with Emilia, she found a crack in the green crystal she was wearing.

Next Season

In order to repair this, Emilia and Subaru go to "Water Gate City Pristella" at the end of the Sanctuary Arc to negotiate for a large crystal stone.

tsukachan
Puck won’t appear until he receive a large crystal stone in the Priestella in the original light novel chapter 5.
tsukachan
And  Presumably, we can assume that Puck will have a very little appearance in the second season of the anime.
