And Then, Silence is the eighth episode of Psycho-Pass.


With his profiling skills, Shinya Kogami determines that the girls' school killer isn't the same murderer from The Specimen Case because the recent murders lack the "originality" and pointed social commentary of the previous killings. When Akane Tsunemori and he realize the culprit is one of the students, they locate Rikako Oryo, who escapes when one of the teachers stops Kogami from executing her. As the Enforcers try to locate her secret routes and hiding places, Oryo flees, but not before everyone discovers her latest brutal creation. Shogo Makishima calls Oryo to tell her that she's a disappointment and has Toyohisa Senguji dispose of her. In the meantime, Kogami picks up a damaged audio file which was deliberately left by Makishima. Due to Oryo's failure, Makishima develops an interest in Kogami.

  • At the beginning of this episode, there is a summary of Episode 0107, because this case is long.

"Why did you only choose students within this school for your works of art?" (Makishima)

  • "This academy is a girls' boarding school. What do you think of their education policy, Mr Makishima? [...] Chastity and grace [...] Traditional virtues that have been lost. They comprise the educational ideology of Oso Academy. They're priorities that are not valued in boys, only in girls. After having them instilled in us, we're shipped out as a brand-name product —"refined, sheltered maidens"— and purchased by men who seek a classic piece of furniture called "a good wife and mother..." for a formality known as marriage." (Oryo)

— Shogo Makishima and Rikako Oryo's exchange

"Was that okay? You really liked her, right?" (Choe)

  • "Yeah. [...] But I found a more interesting toy. I'd like you to gather some information. Look into the man from the Bureau who visited this afternoon. He's probably an Enforcer. It seems his name is Kogami." (Makishima)

"That's quite an unusual guy you've set your sights on." (Choe)

  • "Yeah. His insight and ability to grasp the truth is most fascinating. I get the feeling he'll be very entertaining indeed."
