Episode Summary

EDIT
With the latest Individual 11 incident still fresh in the public's mind, Section 9 discovers that only a skilled face sculptor could have created Kuze's prosthetic face. Since only two artists fit that description, they quickly locate the craftsmen and go to question them.

  • Who really died at the end of this episode?

    7.0
    The ending of this episode is a little unclear. Batou says that it was "probably" the real Paz [that survived at the end, presumably]. At the beginning of Paz's fight with his doppelganger, we see her swipe her knife at Paz's chest. When we see the dead Paz after the struggle with a knife in its eye, we also see a knife swipe across its chest...in fact the shot seems to pan specifically to this cut for us to notice it. This would seem to indicate that the real Paz died in the fight. The one that survived, the woman that had an identical body made and assumed his identity said before the fight that she no longer needed Paz now that she had his Ghost. The episode previously hinted a ghost may subside in the character lines of the face. Even if each individual experience and conversation of a lifetime affected these lines such that the face was an accurate recording of the ghost, there is no way even the most skilled face-artist could reproduce a face all the way to the molecular level to exactly replicate the ghost. Also, any ghost she got would only be "up to date" to the time of its duplication. As such, if the real Paz did die, one would think the doppelganger could be quickly found out when she couldn't accurately answer questions about Paz most recent conversations with Batou or the Major. Does anyone else have any insight here, or am I the only one that overanalyzes these episodes?moreless
  • Wow more about Paz

    10
    So theres an episode about Paz. This episode tells alot about Paz. He has many enemies and one of them framed him in a murder of a craftsman. It started with Section 9 investigating about one of the 'Individual 11' members face but then ended up with Paz. The end of this episode was easy to get..actually this whole episode waz easy to get.
  • Finally an epsiode about Satio!

    9.9
    Wait I put this review on the wroung episode. I meant the next episode. Sorry! Wow this epiosde was pretty tense. It explains how Satio lost his eye. This takes place in the year 2020. I couldn't believe who took out his eye! It was the Major! Who would had thought that Satio and the Major in a fight! This episode also kind of explain why people call her Major.
