The aftermath of the bombing. Plus some more explosions.
I stand corrected of previous episode’s summary. The explosions, which were at Tokyo government office, did not kill people. There were no casualties, only some minor injuries. The police hold a conference where it’s revealed that the bombs used a reaction similar to that used in welding to melt the beams of the building and bring it down. A message is left behind, just 3 letters: VON.
We also see some of Lisa’s home life. Her mother seems to have severe abandonment issues and her treatment of Lisa is tinged with paranoia. No wonder the girl’s got problems. To make matters worse, Twelve kindly informs her that she may be their accomplice but she’s not one of them. I feel sorry for Lisa, dragged into terrorism of all things and left with zero emotional support. She was already a mess before, I don’t imagine this helps any.
Meanwhile, Nine and Twelve prepare for another bombing, complete with an uploaded video that gives the police a riddle from the Oedipus myth to solve. They jump the gun on the solution and mistake the target to be a DNA facility. The ex-detective from the OP, Shibazaki, figures out the actual solution but is too late and there’s an explosion in the Roppongi police station itself. I’m a little disappointed by how the cops screwed up the solution since their mistake was really stupid. But I guess it was the best way to bring Shibazaki back into the force.
What the boys stole in the last episode turns out to be plutonium and not what they used for the bombing like I assumed. Since the message ‘VON’ was left there as well, those in the police who are in the know are rightly worried. So am I (well okay I’m more curious than anything).
It’s funny how Twelve’s smile is shown during the OP’s “Your smile is like that of an angel” line when in reality, his smile looks borderline deranged.
