An explosion occurs in broad daylight and despite having no casualties, it brings the attention of the MWPSB. The police's investigation tracks the culprit as Akira Kitazawa, a demolitions expert whose career was staggered after it was confirmed that his Crime Coefficient tends to increase under pressure. Upon locating Kitazawa's hideout, Inspector Akane Tsunemori realizes that he is setting a trap for them and disobeys her orders to advance and confront him. Her assumptions are proven correct, and Kitazawa escapes, apparently taking a female hostage with him, which he soon after releases. Certain that the hostage is actually a hologram with another trap, Akane's unit keeps pursuing Kitazawa and upon cornering him, Akane notices that his Crime Coefficient is just a little over the minimum required for the Dominator to enter into execution mode and decides to calm him down instead of killing him. Her plan works and she knocks him out with the paralyzing mode when his Crime Coefficient drops to the non-lethal levels. Elsewhere, Inspector Mizue Shisui and her partner Enforcer Yamatoya are sent to follow the hologram, who is revealed to actually be a man. This man does not register on her Dominator, and he injects Inspector Shisui with some kind of drug that paralyzes her. He kisses her, then takes her hand and makes her use her Dominator to kill Yamatoya, leaving behind the message "WC?", written in blood.
