Synopsis

Public Safety Bureau#Inspectors|Inspector Mizue Shisui wakes up in an unfamiliar room, finding herself fixed, with a Dominator pointed at her, and an eye missing. Then Kirito Kamui comes up and tells her the reason, and shows her how her crime coefficient changes due to his effort. Meanwhile, Akane Tsunemori and Division 01 investigate the word "WC?" in her room, which appeared while she was asleep. Then, she visits Joji Saiga to talk to him about the current investigation. Ginoza in turn has a conversation with Aoyanagi about Sibyl and justice. When Risa leaves her friend's room, Shisui calls her. She along with Sugo and Kaede, goes to the treatment center, but leaves the enforcers outside the building. She witnesses an attack on one of the employees. When she targets The Dominator at the aggressor, it turns out that his Psycho-Pass is normal. After a while, the man attacks her. Meanwhile Mika Shimotsuki, Yayoi Kunizuka and Sho Hinakawa arrest the man who knows Kamui.

Trivia

  • The conversation between Akane Tsunemori and Nobuchika Ginoza in her house is quite interesting. Ginoza first sighs when he sees the messy apartment. Then when he starts to doubt, Tsunemori asks the Enforcer to point his Dominator at her to check her Hue, which is an offense. This is quite similar to when Enforcer Shinya Kogami shows his dissatisfaction to Inspector Ginoza, and Ginoza says, "complain to the Chief." This is because Ginoza now considers Tsunemori a friend.

Ginoza's collection of 1-Euro coins

  • Between this and the last episode, the opening and the ending were altered.
  • Some of the coins Ginoza uses to decorate his dorm room are Euros, the currency adopted in most European countries since 1999. In a close-up you can see a collection of country specific 1-Euro coins. From top left to bottom right they are coins from: Belgium, Germany, Ireland, Greece, Spain, Slovakia, France, Italy, Slovakia (again), Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Finland, Austria, Portugal, Slovenia, Cyprus, Malta. The one missing from the shot is probably Estonia as the collection is composed of all coins that were adopted between the years 1999 and 2011. Since they were only 17 countries in the Eurozone during that time, the Slovakian coin appears twice.
  • The brown-and-white dog is Ginoza's aged Siberian husky, Dime, which he is able to keep after becoming an Enforcer because he is a licensed Dog Therapist.
  • Marie Oi, the Japanese voice actor for the pharmacy announcer, also voices minor characters in later episodes:
    (4, 6, 7, 8, 10 and 11).
  • Shisui's Crime Coefficient is initially given as 129.4, before climbing to the 150 range and then dropping down to 85, as measured by Kirito Kamui with Mizue's own eye.
  • Tsunemori's Crime Coefficient is read at 38.4 by Shimotsuki.

Quotes

"My name is Kirito Kamui. I want to make you and this world clear... so clear that they're completely invisible."
— Kirito Kamui to Mizue Shisui


"There's no way someone could have broken in. But, there's also no reason to think that the Inspector lost her mind. So as things stand, we're faced with two impossible scenarios. But one of them definitely happened. If the chances of each happening is equally probable... Enforcers should trust the Inspector."
Sakuya Togane to Mika Shimotsuki


"You think I'm the type that can be swayed by appeals to the heart?"
Joji Saiga to Akane Tsunemori


Are you joking? I'm an Inspector. And a human."
— Nobuchika Ginoza offers Risa Aoyanagi a drink she initially refuses

"I sometimes wonder [...] if I put a lid on my feelings the moment I killed him. When both my joy and sadness reach a certain point, this lid makes sure they don't come flowing out. Even when I try to feel with everything I've got, it seems like I'm looking on from outside of this lid with cold eyes. [...] That's how I feel. But [...] I feel that this lid starts to come off when I'm holding a Dominator. Because it starts to come off, my rationality stops it. That rationality is indeed what makes me an Inspector. That time [...] when I shot Kitazawa, too, I almost enjoyed it. That's a bit dangerous, isn't it? [...] All I've got now is this job. I'll definitely cling to it."
— Risa Aoyanagi to Nobuchika Ginoza


"No! That won't work! Medication can't save anyone. It changes nothing! Everyone needs to open their eyes. They can't just rely on medication... if they really want to be saved. I have to save you guys."
Koki Mima
