The Sibyl System reveals itself to Akane, claiming that she understands the necessity of the system, if not its justifiability, asking her for cooperation to apprehend Makishima alive. Makishima finds the professor who is responsible for the hyper-oats and murders him after finding the information he seeks, taking along the man's fingers and eyeballs as a measure against biometric security. Kogami arrives on the scene not long after and leaves a clue for the MWSPB in the man's airpipe. Meanwhile, Akane contacts Sibyl and convinces it to withdraw the execution order for Kogami, should she accomplishes its request to capture Makishima alive. Thanks to her detective work, they quickly find Kogami's clue and learns about the situation, as Makishima finally reaches his destination, with Kogami right on his trail.
