Review by David Cirone
Maya doesn’t buy Falcon’s story, and she pulls a gun on him. Before she can pull the trigger, she’s shot through the open window by a nearby THIRD-i sniper. Seems like Falcon pulled some cell-phone trickery to bring THIRD-i to the scene, and they take the wounded Maya into custody.
Senior THIRD-i operative Ikuma Kano (Yutaka Matsushige) doesn’t waste any time. He gets Maya bandaged up and straps her in for some shock therapy interrogation. She doesn’t give in easily, and Kano keeps up the pressure. Maya agrees to reveal the location of Takagi Sr. if Falcon accompanies them on the drive.
Kano gets ready to bring the pain.
Kano and Hoshou are assigned to handle the mission, and they pack Maya and Falcon into the van. THIRD-i director Kirishima keeps tabs on them from central command, and it isn’t long before they realize they’re being tailed by a suspicious car.
Maya asserts that someone in the van must be a traitor, and she takes the opportunity to play some head games with the crew to raise the tension. Is the traitor Hoshou or Kano?
Kirishima handles the operation from THIRD-i’s command center.
