Devil's Crossroad is the twelfth episode of Psycho-Pass.


Three years ago, Yayoi Kunizuka, a former guitarist, is institutionalized after she's detected as a latent criminal. As she anxiously waits for release so she can play the guitar again, she is approached by Shinya Kogami, who is still an Inspector, and Nobuchika Ginoza about a series of crimes occurring in the area she was once familiar with. She initially rejects their offer until Kogami gives her some guitar strings which reminded her of a guitarist she admired, Rina Takizaki. When the club they are investigating gets set on fire after Kogami's Enforcer partner Mitsuru Sasayama jumps the gun in approaching culprits dealing with Molotov cocktails, Kunizuka decides to search for Takizaki, only to discover she is part of a resistance group selling the Molotov cocktails in the hopes of overthrowing the Sibyl System. Kunizuka tries to stop Takizaki but finds she is unable to use the Dominator that Kogami gave her, as she was not actually an Enforcer yet, and Takizaki escapes. Afterward, Kunizuka resolves to become an Enforcer and leaves the rehabilitation center.
