I was a little bit afraid that the show would not be able to stay as good as it was during the first episodes. Just because it is a little too high standard. But well, I can’t say that I was right. The show changes with each episode. If you liked the first episode because of the almighty Kira, then you might not be satisfied with the progress of the story. But if you like the detective aspect of the plot, then you might find it getting more and more amusing. But on yet another hand, if you liked the mystery of the fight between anonymous L and the Death Note in Light’s hands, then you probably are missing the first episodes.
So Kira got the fiancée of the FBI agent he killed before. But he barely did it, which speaks of the risk the whole operation of eliminating FBI agents had. Actually, there is one aspect of the whole thing with killing those agents that is not clear. Why did Light need the name of Penber? As far as I can see, he needed the name only to make sure that Penber meets him on that station. Then, of course, it might be that Light made him be obedient before his death, or something alone the line.
Now, let us think one more time, who is winning the game and why. Thanks to the FBI elimination Kira was able to reduce the manpower of his opponent. Did it help? Actually no, it did not help at all. L was able to do what ever he wanted the whole time, without any problems. So the whole operation was a waste, sad but true. And not only was it a waste, but it gave L additional facts to go from.
First, he was able to circle down the list o suspects. Now Light has cameras all over his house. Would have it happen if he laid still and did not try to fence with L? I think not.
Second, L have seen the file that Penber was carrying. I do not know if it will, but it might give L some ideas. Think about it. L know that there is no obvious way Kira could know faces and real names of FBI agents. But he knows that Penber received a list of the names and photos from his boss (I think he knows that, I am not sure). So, it is logical that Kira would kill those agents through Penber, somehow. Now, there is that alien object that Penber carries. That gives you an idea of the shape of the weapon, doesn’t it? And it gives you an idea of how it works. It can’t be something too complicated, or else Penber would not have been able to use it.
So, I will go on watching the show, hope L follows this train of thoughts that I just put there. See you (^_^)/
