Apparently, this Shibasaki guy is a pretty good cop if he’s being called to action. I’m assuming he left the police force after something went wrong in one of his cases. Anyway, I’m still curious about motives in this show…and also how the girl is supposed to factor into all of these things (she totally isn’t being forced to do this!). I definitely caught the small switch with the famous Sphinx riddle, where the two legs thing comes first, but I didn’t know that there was actually a second riddle that went like that, so I didn’t know the answer. I figured that the “man” answer was way too easy because too many people know that reference.
What was up with the last line in the episode? Nine states that he is “waiting” for someone. Is he simply saying that he’s ready for the police to chase him or is there a specific target that he has in mind? And apparently, these two have plutonium now, so presumably they’re preparing to take these explosions to a nuclear scale. Nothing wrong with more explosions, right?
