  • This episode has to be the best one yet!

    This episode was full of surprises. Creepy, suspenseful, and it looks like things are really picking up the pace now. I'm glad that Light has more to deal with now. Things seemed too easy before, but now he's got his work cut out for him. Now he has lost his trump card with Misa, her Shinigami eyes and the real identity of L.



    The biggest shock was Misa being captured and the way she was tied up. It was nice to see Rem reassure her that everything would be okay, and it was sad to see them part from each other.



    The ending certainly gave us some food for thought. I wonder what Light meant when he said goodbye to Ryuk? Damn, this is intense. It'd always be a cliffhanger no matter where they ended the episodes.moreless

    this episode is one of the best episode i have seen of death note. this episode used all of light an l's intelligence to be done. im amazed at how light and l went back and fourth thinking of wat they should do next. i was amazed at the end at when light was smart enough to think about a way to make a bad thing into a good thing. i also like how L used all of his intelligence to trick light again and again. well this episode was awsome and i advise you to watch it long live DeaTh NotE.moreless
  • Light immediately suspects that Misa is the second Kira after meeting her. Then L catches her and asks her questions by torturing; she refuses to answer. Then Rem gives her a solution: To giveup the death note. Rem then goes to Light & talkmoreless

    Wow- Ryuzaki is extremely smart in this episode. I liked it how he took the two cellphones from Misa by acting as if he wanted to touch her 'behind.' I didn't expect that at all, did you? And the writer has a very good way of showing that Ryuzaki took the two cellphones.



    Even though I admire the smartness of Ryuzaki, I somewhat feel sorry for the fact that Light idn;t get his name. But, I am happy too because if Light had got his name, then the series would have ended, which wouldn't be very intresting.



    Anyways, Ryuzakis action was really smart!moreless

    This episode is definitely one of the more exciting ones, leaving the viewer wishing for more. Misa discovers L's name, but is taken into custody, tortured, and gives up ownership of the Death Note--meaning no more shinigami eyes! Just how will Light get her out of the situation without exposing himself or losing his life? It'll be one doozy of a plan, to peak at episode 25/26. Can y'all wait that long?



    The emotions of this episode were the most self-apparent of any episode yet, and it's almost heart breaking to watch it. It's well-written, well-plotted, and most of all, calls the viewer back for more. I give it 9.3/10.moreless
  • Torture? *gasps* You wouldn't do that! It pains Rem to see Misa in such a position. And so is Light. AND TAHT WAS SPECTACULAR!

    Well, that was L. It was crazy of him to do that. He laugehd becasue he knew she was tehs econd Kira.



    "Well, this is goodbye, Ryuk."



    What do you mean? Now that you have two Death Notes, you have the power you wanted all along! I bet Light's turning hismelf in. No, Light, I won't let you! Please no!!! Well, I guess he did.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • Altered Scene: Before L meets Light with Takada at the college campus, the manga has a rather light-hearted conversation between two students talking about the current relationship between "Cool Guy" Light and "Refined" Takada.

    • Altered Scene: In the manga, before Light calls Misa's phone to get L's name, he mentally mentions that in January before his room was bugged with cameras, he discovered that he can control the actions of another person for up to 23 days.

    • Altered Scene: In the anime, after Misa leaves Light's house, and as L talks to Light at college, all information regarding the possibility of multiple people with the "L" identity have been removed.

    • Altered Scene: Before Rem leaves Misa, she wipes the tears off of her face and brushes part of her hair over in the process. Not being able to see shinigami, L notices that her hair gets brushed over for no apparent reason.

    • Listen Closely: When Light calls Misa's phone (that L currently has), you can hear the series' ending theme "Alumina" set as her ringtone.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Light: Goodbye Ryuuga... It was fun knowing you. After getting your name, I can take you out with my own hands, perfect.

    • L: So if I die these coming days... Yagami-san will take over the investigation and every L will know that Yagami Light is Kira.
      Light: (thinking to himself) He's doing it again... claiming there are other L's...

    • L: Hey, do you want to have some cake with me in the cafeteria?
      Light: Sure. I have a break now, anyway.
      L: Hm, that's perfect. I'm kinda craving short-cake right now...
      Light: Well, let's hope they have it.

    • L: Besides, you told me yourself that you missed having me around at school, so I figured why not come back for a little... change of pace. As long as it doesn't kill me, college is a lot of fun.
      Light: I have to admit, without you around, intelligent conversation is hard to come by.
      L: Heh, I see. Luckily Kiyomi is there to fill in the void?
      Light: Well, something like that...

    • Rem: Yagami Light, you did lose the name of L, but I did this because I knew it was best for Misa. But if you don't save Misa, I will kill you.
