Recap / Death Note Ep 05 Tactics

Penber tells Light that he's under orders to investigate a case. Therefore, he promises him not to tell the police force about all this, especially his own father. Light agrees to keep this a secret. As soon as he left, he thinks it's all according to plan.

As soon as Penber gets home from work, his fiancée has suspicions on her own about the highjacking bus incident. Realizing what she's thinking, he brushes this off, having reminded her many times she's not a FBI agent anymore so don't get involve in the Kira case. He reminds her that's the promise she made when they arrive in Japan so that he can meet her parents. She apologizes for this force of habit, but Penber apologizes as well, and says to just forget about this argument.

At night, Light has decided to spare Penber for the week and sends another message to L. On the following week, he is in the subway to test out an experiment: if he writes down the cause of death first before the name is written down, it will happen. As soon as Penber enters, he gets him to write down the names of 12 FBI agents who are investigating the Kira case under L. While in the middle of this, Penber seems to get suspicious of Light's voice. He walks away from the train, then he suddenly gets a heart attack. No one in the station seems to notice that. Looking back at the train, he realizes Light is in the train before dying.
