L’S DEAD!?!?! No way!!!
L can’t be dead. He can’t be! He’s the best character in this whole show! There’s got to be some way out of this. This has to be part of his master plan. Come on, if Light was able to recover from comprehensive amnesia, then L’s got to find some way to bounce back from a heart attack.
Ack! Nobody’s safe in this show! And the worst part is that it’s all on account on that ditz Misa. I feel good for calling Rem’s death like I did, but man… it just HAD to be L and Watari’s deathes that got her turned to sand? That’s like being proven right in the worst way. Ack! What a dramatic scene though, with the slow motion and the fluorescent scribble. I guess if he has to check out, this was at least an artful exist.
So many questions… and a lot of them were brought up just before L bit it. Light, that bastard, actually brings up some of the most challenging ones. Do L and the state have the right to use the death note, while Kira does not? On what grounds can they even try Kira if they do apprehend him? There aren’t exactly precedents for this kind of case and it’d be tricky to establish guilt, because he wasn’t directly involved in the murders.
There’s that pointed question L asks Light. “Since the day you were born, have you ever been honest?”
L knows. He has to know. And it seems like he knows he’s going to die, too, telling Watari that something’s wrong in the beginning and asking about the bells? His own funeral bells? Aaaaaaahhh… he has to be in on it, because I couldn’t help but see a lot of allusions to the Last Supper in that scene after he and Light step out of the rain - - L offering to wash the feet of his betrayer right before he dies on account of his scheming, and what not. If it was intentional, it’d certainly follow all those other Biblical allusions with the forbidden fruit and what not.
I’m sure that scene fueled the imagination of thousands of yaoi artist, too.
Ack! L can’t be dead. He IS Batman. They even flashing glimpses of some childhood trauma at what looks like an orphanage in this episode. He’s got a plan… I know it.
