How were they able to pack this many twists and turns into one episode? I’m almost at loss over where to start - - there’s just so much to cover! I suppose I’ll have to do this with quick bullet points... and you better believe these bullets aren't blanks!
- What’s so tragic about this show is that L is been totally right about Light and Misa, he’s just been cheated out of having the evidence to prove it. It’s so frustrating to see him standing right next to Kira and knowing it's him, but not being able to take him down. So close, yet so far.
- I don’t think Chief Yagami is going to make it to the end of this show. He’s already had a heart attack, he’s been through the ringer multiple times, he’s had to threaten to kill his pleading son and all for a lie that’ll have to be revealed eventually. You have to feel for him. He really is selfless, and he’s going to die for it.
- That whole fake execution was edge-of-your-seat intense. If there were any more tension, the whole thing would be liable to snap.
- I’m sorry to split hairs, but Light should have died anyway. If you fire a gun that closes to somebody’s forehead, it’s going to kill them, even if it’s a blank.
- L’s seeming more and more like Batman as this series goes along. He’s a master detective with a secret identity who’s an unofficial consultant to the police, he’s aided by an infinitely resourceful butler and he’s got an infinite supply of resources and capital. Does that sound familiar to you? Seriously, he has a skyscraper built for the sole purpose of aiding his investigation? You don’t get the case for that from good investments.
- As if the status quo couldn’t be turned on its head again... now Kira’s been commercialized? The show's satire’s really running the gamut. The internet, celebrity culture and, now, the corporate world?
- When did Matsuda become such a moron? You didn't even notice before and now everybody's pointing out how stupid he is. Talk about standing out for the wrong reasons.
