Well, it actually was an intermission. Are intermissions (that, AFAIK, are related by a nameless narrator) told from Shirou's perspective?
Let me get some screenshots about this...
Don't tell me that you find coincidental six mortal wounds. Please.
Ah, I finally see what you were talking about, ahahaha. What you have said is certainly a valid interpretation of the scene: six wounds that killed him six times, all present on the body, therefore God Hand is not instant refresh. However, if you read it carefully, not all of them are mortal wounds to a servant. Remember, Sabre got impaled through her chest, but she still retained most of her abilities, and she was still alive. Let's go through all the wounds...
Legs almost melted: This won't kill a servant, heck even a human can survive a little bit with mutilated legs. Servants can regenerate this for sure.
Cut on neck: This maybe can kill him, but remember his Battle Continuation. Unless it is CLEARLY mortal (head falls off), he will most likely not die.
Arm loose: Meh, arms are over-rated.
Slash from shoulder to groin: Again, Battle Continuation, this will not result in instant death.
Blood gushing out of chest: Big deal, Brother Lancer got his heart poked out, he still stayed alive to kill Kotomine and kick Shinji's ass, and all this only cost Lancer one life. Sabre got stabbed IN the chest by a CURSED lance, she stayed alive fine, plus, she ain't got no Battle Continuation!
Internal organs can be see: Organs are over-rated too. Shirou lost a few after taking an axe to the stomach, he regenerated with Avalon, and he did not even have 11 extra lives. Berserker for sure won't die of this.
So as you can see, one can interpret these as non-mortal wounds (for a servant). This is why I thought all the wounds are the results of Archer failing to kill Berserker a 7th time. Berserker then took time to regenerate from these wounds (this falls back to the theory that God Hand does not kick in to heal non-mortal wounds). Again, I may be wrong, Nasu could very well decide that those were the mortal wounds that killed Berserker. I need to review that section of the story. By the way, where is the hero of justice with the saved file in his sig?
Edit: Do you have this part saved? If you do, can you post the context of that screen shot too? No one can argue with original text, if it is stated "these are the six mortal wounds Archer inflicted", then we will all be quiet and stop arguing.
