So, before I start the recap I have to say that the first three episodes were just okay. Since Light is just a normal dude, he’s not going to be super smart right from the getgo, so I can forgive him for not thinking two steps ahead. The show did state that he’s smart, but not ambitious, so hopefully he’ll start using his brain more now that he’s starting to get a god complex.
That being said, if L and the cops still don’t suspect Light then they’re stupid. They know Raye was blackmailed by someone who knew the name of his fiancée. The only one with that information is Light. For them to say, “It’s definitely one of the people we already suspect” makes me sad, so hopefully they start focusing more on Light in this episode.
Now that that’s out of the way, here’s the 5 line recap of Death Note 2015:
1. Rem mentions that those who have death notes start to get paranoid and tries to reason with Misa, but Misa doesn’t want to since she doesn’t know what paranoid means.
Light starts getting more paranoid once he finds out about the new Kira. This paranoia actually works for him, because it helps prepare him for when the police set up cameras in his room. He even starts using little traps in his room to find out if people have been in there or not.
The police do seem incompetent, mainly due to their loyalty towards Yagami, so it’s good that Misa’s Kira revealed herself now instead of later. That way, Light can plan ahead. If she waited, then he’d be dead, but if he wasn’t then he’d continue on like normal.
As for L, he’s now narrowed it down to two houses and starts spying in both. He mainly suspects Light though, so I’m happy to hear that!
