You ever think about how Geiz and Tsukuyomi and even Woz, by messing with the timeline, came into this lonely kid’s life and turned it upside down? I’m not just taking about the whole kamen rider thing, I’m talking about how, for the first time, Sougo has friends. That’s made him a lot less lonely and, at the same time, taught him just how precious people are.
These friendships are something vital he didn’t have in the original Oma Zi-O timeline. Not to mention that these friendships have given his uncle ways to reach Sougo that he never had before. That lonely kid is more connected than he ever was.
And so, you can start to see how without this major change -- without these relationships -- that Sougo’s loneliness could’ve been manipulated and used to turn him into something evil. But here, in this timeline, Sougo’s friendships have changed him, and in the process, they’ve made him softer, less bitter, and more compassionate. And maybe, in the end, this will make all the difference in the world.

The last two episodes have really driven home how lonely Sougo is and how happy he is to have Geiz, Tsukuyomi, and even Woz in his life. He even hopes a monster will appear since that means he'll get to see Geiz again.
Also noteworthy is how Sougo loses his smile when Woz tells him he values his evil thoughts. That’s not just because Sougo doesn't want to be evil. It’s also because Woz is the only friend-like person who’s consistently been on his side, and who’s still with him. Here though, Sougo is reminded that Woz has his own reasons for staying with him, which is like a reminder to him that no one really is his friend the way he wishes they would be.
