I think this week’s episode is probably the most interesting one so far…I really enjoyed watching everyone investigate the crime scene and make their theories. I don’t have a specific suspect of my own just yet, but I’ve been reading the opinions of others. There is an online theory that the murders are being done by Magata’s child, conceived from the man that we keep seeing at the end of each episode. The strange things in Magata’s room, such as the TV and the toys, would certainly support that theory. It also explains the “Michiru” in the messages from Magata’s personalities…perhaps that refers to the child and not the robot.
The message also gives somewhat of a motive for this child…it seems like Magata was planning on leaving the child behind and the child could have killed her to gain its own freedom (the messages refers to Michiru as the “one who most wanted to leave”). But why kill the director? The helicopter was the way out. Didn’t want to risk being discovered if help was radioed in? The final piece of the puzzle that this theory doesn’t explain is Magata’s own parents. A child of Magata could not have possibly killed them, so how do they link in to the story? These speculations are getting more and more fun. I’m really looking forward to what comes next.
