This week’s episode was a bit slow at the start as the characters mused about the current state of the mystery, but it ramped up pretty hard in the second half. I’ll admit that I didn’t notice the elevator change during the blackout, but I saw that a few people online did. The immediate reaction of the characters is that the killer called the elevator to the roof, but I guess I’ve been wondering why the killer couldn’t have used it to get to the roof. We’re assuming that the killer would have had to quickly kill the director, right?
The last part of the episode is pretty intriguing, isn’t it? Does “everything is F” really mean “everything is fifteen”? Does that mean that the fifteenth year was always intended to be a turning point for Magata? Or is it just meant to signify the murder of her parents? Also, I didn’t really get too much information from the flashback of the murder fifteen years ago. The only thing that stood out to me was that the director was actually holding on to Magata when she stabbed her father, which begs the question of who was actually in control of the knife when that happened. And if I’m asking this question, why wouldn’t the director’s wife? Doesn’t that seem odd?
