Demegawa commands Kira's followers to continue to smash into the SPK headquarters in New York, while Misa watches the scene on television waiting to kill Near as soon as he exits the building. Near deduces that the Second L is Kira and tells the other members of the Japanese Investigation Team to consider it. Aizawa wonders if Light is Kira. Near and the SPK drop buckets of money out of the windows (the original L's inheritance) to distract the protesters outside. The police arrives to break up the ensuing riot and Near and the SPK exit the building dressed as policemen with face masks and body armor. After the SPK make it out safely, Near calls the Japanese Investigation Team. Light considers his options and e-mails Misa with a plan. Aizawa calls Near and gives him information regarding Light and Misa's confinement, but does not reveal their identities. Near realizes that Kira used his confinement to clear his name. He asks who the suspects were, but Aizawa refuses to reveal their names. Near thanks Aizawa for this information. He discovers that Chief Yagami and Light were father and son and concludes that both Kira and the Second L are Light Yagami. Back at the Japanese Investigation Team headquarters, Aizawa tells Light that he contacted Near and wants to resume video surveillance on Light and Misa to help clear their names, to which Light agrees. Aizawa and Mogi go to Misa's apartment to search for a Death Note, but they do not find anything. Meanwhile, Demegawa appears on television and asks Kira's followers to donate money to build a temple to worship Kira. Light is disgusted that Demegawa is exploiting the Kira situation. He thinks to himself that Demegawa is no longer useful. As Demegawa reveals to the public his "hand-selected officers", they are killed by a Teru Mikami and Demegawa soon follows. Light had instructed Misa to forfeit ownership of her Death Note and mail it to Teru Mikami, whom Light selected based on his appearances in Kira's Kingdom. Back at headquarters, Aizawa realizes that with Mogi still at Misa's, Light and Misa cannot be responsible for these new deaths. He begins to doubt that Light and Misa are guilty.
