Ugh…I’m so upset with myself. I convinced myself that they couldn’t possibly solve the mystery in the first five minutes of the episode because of the letter of challenge from Twenty Faces. If I hadn’t done that, my suspect would have been the girl…now it’s too late. The reason that she was most suspicious last week is that she’s the only one at the scene that didn’t provide any information helpful for the case.
The culprit aside, though, this week’s episode also finally gives Akechi’s connection with Twenty Faces. I think I’ve said before that it’s really likely that Twenty Faces is being controlled in the background by a single person, but it looks like it’s actually a program designed to dispense justice. It’s an interesting concept and we can finally see why Akechi is so obsessed with catching every one. That being said, where does it all end? The original Twenty Faces that kicked everything off has died, so is there really any way to stop an urban legend? Or will Akechi end up forever chasing these new Twenty Faces cases?
