Recap: Because of the murders’ similarities to the incident three years ago, Kogami gets taken off the case.
Very little actually happens to progress the plot this episode, and as a result I was bored to tears. Kogami gets taken off the case, and he tells Akane about his former subordinate who sparked his journey of revenge. Other than that, there are a couple of very long conversations about the motives and whatnot behind the murders that have been going on, but in the end our heroes have not moved from the situation they were in last episode. Or to put it another way, Urobuchi Gen spouts philosophy at us for twenty minutes; if not this, what else have we come to expect from Psycho-Pass? While normally I might not have an issue with that, the problem is that there’s no sense of progression, which is key to something in a serial format like this. Every episode of any show should have the plot progress somehow, and make me want to watch the next episode, and this week’s Psycho-Pass did neither.
It remains to be seen how things will actually go down, and whether or not they’ll be interesting.
