Recap / Death Note Ep 15 Wager

Worried at the prospect that he might be murdered, as he is convinced the two Kiras have met, L demands that in the event of his death, Light should be arrested. Later, Light and L meet each other outside college. Much to the anger and frustration of Light, Misa appears and converses with the two. Minutes after Misa leaves, Light receives the news from L that she has been arrested on grounds of being the second Kira. Misa appears to be blindfolded and tied to a chair, while L instructs Watari to torture her to obtain information. A few days later, Misa relinquishes ownership of her Death Note, thus erasing her memories of its existence.

Tropes associated with the episode:

  • Accidental Pervert: It's implied that Misa had her phone in a pocket or something when L took it. She immediately felt someone touch her butt and he looks a bit flustered.
  • I Just Want to Be Loved: Misa refuses to tell L anything about the Death Note and Kira because she's desperately hoping that Light will love her if she doesn't say anything. Unfortunately, it's pretty clear that Light only sees her as a tool and won't change his mind.
  • Jack Bauer Interrogation Technique: This is done one Misa after she's been apprehended. Needless to say, no one on his team is thrilled to see how far L had gone to get her prepped for interrogation.
  • Mama Bear: Rem threatens to kill Light if he doesn't find a way to save Misa.
  • "Shut Up" Kiss: Light does this to Misa to convince her that he "loves" her and to get her to leave for the night.
  • Wham Line: The last line that Light says at the end.
    "This is goodbye, Ryuk."
