We start the episode with Ikuo clutching his head as memories come flooding back. They were triggered by seeing two of the men (Director Hibino & Deputy Commissioner Hijuri )with gold watches during the IA meeting regarding his shooting of the Yukaza. As he passes out we see a memory of a young Ikuo being dropped off at the orphanage by an unknown man with a gold watch. Eeeek. What is going on? Makes you wonder why these kids were being grouped together in the first place? I have to admit my imagination is running wild thinking of everything between child trafficking to grow your own thugs from scratch scenarios.
Wow... I don't really know where to start. Let me just say that this was a truly amazing episode from start to finish. The feelz that came from watching this were slightly overwhelming. I love that the story is going in directions that are unexpected and that my fears regarding Hibino coming between the boys were unfounded. It will be interesting to see how Hibino deals with Ikuo's outing and if she will end up helping them. I am sure that Ikuo is not actually dead, but seeing his hand fall limply to the side about gave me a heart attack. There is always the chance that one of my anti-hero boys will die in the end, but I am truly hoping that they can avoid that fate. Especially this early in the drama.
