It looks like the police have gained an ally from the secret facility that raised Nine and Twelve. Five was able to completely outsmart Nine this week, but I wonder just how recurring that will be. It’s possible that Nine was just too flustered from being caught off guard to react appropriately. Another possibility is that the numbers indicate some sort of ranking and Five really is just better than Nine, and maybe Lisa is going to have to be used to outsmart her.
Lisa’s proven herself completely useless so far, but maybe she’ll get her chance next week. Also, what does all of this mean for Shibazaki? Surely he wouldn’t be pushed aside just because there’s a new character here to face off against Sphinx, right? But do we really see him working well together with Five?
