Those Capable is the second episode of Psycho-Pass.
Enforcer Shinya Kogami remains hospitalized as he recovers from the Dominator-enforced paralysis, while Inspector Akane Tsunemori begins another work day. Enforcer Tomomi Masaoka teams up with Tsunemori to take out a threat at a shopping mall and upon their return, Tsunemori shares a meal and some revealing conversation with Enforcer Shusei Kagari. Later, she visits Kogami, who reinforces her belief she made the right call during the hostage situation which leads to her turning in her report with no regrets.
List of characters in order of appearance:
- According to Tsunemori's alarm clock, the beginning of this episode takes place on Wednesday, 5th of November 2112 (the day after the previous episode).
- Tsunemori meets up with friends (Yuki Funahara and Kaori Minase) at Akebonobashi Station.
- The name of Shion Karanomori's lab is "Comprehensive Analysis Laboratory."
- Yamane ‒ the person Tsunemori and Masaoka want to take out at the shopping mall (Iko Gryce Hill in the Adachi ward) ‒ his Hue clouds after his girlfriend dumps him because the Sibyl System says she matches better with someone else and he wants revenge.
- Yamane's crime coefficient is 126.3 (when Masaoka reads it).
- At the end of the episode, in Division 01's office, we see that Kogami has 7 cartons of Spinel cigarettes under his desk and 4 packs next to him.
"That which needs to be done is carried out by those capable of doing it. Such is the grace bestowed upon mankind by Sibyl."
— Yuki Funahara to Akane Tsunemori
"While I do have a physician's license, can you believe that's all it took for the government to delegate employee health care to the Analysis Lab? Sure, I may be a latent criminal too, but that doesn't mean they can just slave drive me as much as they want, right? [...] Let's see. Akane, was it? [...] If you're an Inspector, that puts you on the fast track at the Bureau, right? Hurry up and become a high-ranking official so you can reform the system. You can start by splashing out a swimming pool and bar lounge at the CID. I'm counting on you!"
— Shion Karanomori to Akane Tsunemori
"So you really can identify latent criminals?" (Tsunemori)
- "With experience, you'll intuitively know at first glance when someone's up to no good. Committing crimes, or cracking down on them. [...] Either way, they're talents that deal with criminal behavior. That's why my Crime Coefficient is so high...Thanks to that, I'm now treated like a hunting dog who gets all the dirty work." (Masaoka)
"In the end [...] I was pretty useless in there, wasn't I?" (Tsunemori)
- "No, you were quite helpful. Enforcers can't walk around outside without an accompanying Inspector... We talked about this, right? [...] After you bring Enforcers to the site, all you need to do is keep an eye on them to make sure they don't slack off, that's all you need to do." (Masaoka)
"In other words, you're telling me not to do anything, right?" (Tsunemori)
— Akane Tsunemori and Tomomi Masaoka's conversation
"I was the only one who got an A ranking for the Public Safety Bureau. There were more than 500 students and I was the only one. So I thought that there must have been something that only I could do at the Bureau. If I went there, I thought I could find my purpose in life. [...] I thought I'd be able to find out why I was born here and now."
— Akane Tsunemori to Shusei Kagari
"I've been an Enforcer for a long time. [...] I just followed that gun's orders and shoot many latent criminals. It was for the good of society, I told myself. It was easier to just accept that logic without question and, past a certain point, I didn't even think about it anymore. I didn't even think to look back at myself and what I was doing. I was a fool. Being a detective isn't about bringing people down. It's supposed to be about protecting people. You decided what was right on your own. You were able to put justice before your duty. With a boss like you, I might be able to work as a detective, not just a dog...You also don't see many Inspectors who'd bow to an Enforcer."
— Shinya Kogami to Akane Tsunemori
"If you had time to think about it with a level head, you would've tried not to shoot her, right?" (Tsunemori)
- "I don't know. I didn't hesitate at the time. I thought I'd die if I hesitated. I thought, 'I don't want to die in a place like this. I cannot die here, no matter what!' That one thought consumed me. I have unfinished business to take care of. There's something I have to settle no matter what!" (Kogami)
— Akane Tsunemori and Shinya Kogami exchange
"So, you're saying that you made the right decision at the time? Is that your conclusion, Inspector Tsunemori?" (Ginoza)
- "Yes. Her Crime Coefficient was only temporarily elevated. In fact, the therapy she's receiving after being taken into custody is going well, and her Psycho-Pass is recovering." (Tsunemori)
"Kogami, is there anything you want to say?" (Ginoza)
- "No. Inspector Tsunemori fulfilled her duty. That is all." (Kogami)
— Nobuchika Ginoza, Shinya Kogami and Akane Tsunemori (about the case)
