Oh yes, that avatar is "vaguely" familiar. Gahaha!!
Nice to have someone who's a devoted GitS SAC fan!!
This week's new episode, Episode 10: Trial
At first, it didn't look that way, but as it turned out, this was an amazing episode!!
On the surface, it looks like a simple trial, where Togusa who played a nice guy and saved a women, get in trouble because of the nasty lawer for the accused.
On the surface, that is...
Then, the last few minutes of the episode turned everything upside down, and blew me away!!
It took me a few days to fully realize exactly what took place in the episode.
I'm seriously thinking using the spoiler, because if anyone who hasn't watched this episode, and planning to watch it sometime, then deffinitely should NOT read what really took place, untill seen the whole episode.
So, with that in mind, (I'm not making it as a spoiler, but) if you haven't seen the episode, please skip this post. What (I think) took place in the episode:
In the opening scene, on the way home, Togusa saves a woman from being assulted by her ex-lover.
Togusa made mistake of disabling the attacker, but NOT disarming him.
While Togusa was checking on woman, the attacker shot the women.
The case went on trial, and Togusa was held as the witness.
The big boss, Motoko, and other member of Section 9 went to see Togusa, and told him that they could communicate undetected during the trial on the "off channel channel," (but Togusa refused to communicate with them during the trial.)
Togusa was grilled by the deffendent's lawyer in the trial (the lawyer was very good at this, and soooo nasty!!!) who tried to crush the only witness (Togusa)'s reliability as a witness.
That's what it looked on the surface, but here is what Togusa did not know...
DA (Distict Attorney) who's prosecuting this guy, was connected to Gouda, yes, HIM again!!
DA told Gouda about the case, Gouda told the diffendent's lawer about Togusa working with Setion 9, which is off the record organization, and Togusa can't speak in the public court many stuff going on with Section 9.
Knowing that, the lawyer asked Togusa many questions that were difficult to answer without exposing the details of Section 9's activities.
Because of that, Togusa could not answer many questions, and thus making the impression that he's not trustable witnes..
While not being able to communicate with Togusa off channel during the trial (because Togusa shut off the communication) the Section 9 was checking everything on the DA, the deffendent's lawyer, the deffendent, and found out the connection to Gouda, and more.
(this post is still under construction...)
I have to take time organizing (in my head) the events that took place in the last three minutes of this episode (that are loaded with surprizes, AND moral issues.)
I'll post the rest tomorrow. ETA
