Quote of the day

Real heroes don’t need to take lives.

Give it to the weird tech conbi to come up with it. I thought it was brilliant.

Now, let’s see what this episode offered us. When you think of murder victims, it’s only natural to point the blame on the killer. The one who kills is the bad guy. This episode takes on the 2nd episode’s trend again, but in a different manner.

The victim this time was a killer 5 years ago but because he was a minor and under drug influence, he wasn’t executed. So in layman’s term, someone finally did some justice and the killer got what he deserved. Case closed and everybody’s happy.

Except the police now has to find the killer of that killer. It’s a never ending vicious cycle of revenge.

I like how this episode keeps on introducing weirdos from the underground ‘employment agency’ guy Ango goes to when he needs something the police can’t provide.

This time, let’s meet ‘Handyman Suzuki’. Basically, he knows how to set up hidden cameras and has a van filled with those equipment to spy on people.

What makes this episode more interesting is the victim doesn’t know who his killer was. He made a wild guess and pointed the name of the victim’s husband whose wife and child he killed 5 years ago, thinking he finally got him. However, as Ango investigated, the neighbourhood’s prompt witness accounts were too much of a coincident and it totally smelled like someone was behind all this.

He finally made a move towards the President of Resident’s Council in the town.

Another step up from previous episode. Although I have to say, the killer was quite obvious from the beginning. What do you think? Is this drama heading towards the right direction or you still have complains? Voice them out!

Ooh! We have explosives in the next episode!
