* Episode four is very action-packed where you got Kei fighting Enomiya's men who are trying to kill Karina. Later, he helps out Tenma and Yayoi in dealing with the others in the control room. Then, he and Tenma work together to defeat an armored drone by tossing it out from the balcony.
** Arata saving Karina from the drone. While he's not much of a fighter like Kei, he uses his parkour skills to take Karina to safety while Kei and Tenma deal with the drone.


** And in episode 13, she quickly bounces back after [[spoiler:Yuki's death]], resolving to hunt down Makashima.
* Yuki's death scene and no, not because [[TearJerker/PsychoPass it's anything awesome]] but because the ''writing'' of it is. While the arc between episode 10 and 11 is played brilliantly dramatic in introducing Makishima, with the [[HeWhoFightsMonsters cat and mouse game he has with Kougami]] it's really the 11's ending where [[spoiler: Akane has to witness first hand the death of Yuki]]. For many people, this is the game changing episode- the point of the story where the WideEyedIdealist, who literally episodes prior only took this position because she scored high, is visibly shaken enough to start questioning her world view. [[spoiler: Makishima exists, the Dominator ''couldn't fire'', one of her best friends is dead, and her view of Sibyl is visibly shaken]]. To many fans, this is like reliving episode 3 of Madoka: the game changing episode that will underscore and set the tone for how dark the rest of the series will be.

* And Episode 20 has Akane [[spoiler:give the Sibyl System an ultimatum: They spare Kogami's life in exchange for her bringing Makishima in alive. When the system shows signs of not agreeing, she says that if it doesn't, she will do nothing while Makishima dies, even threatening to kill him herself if need be.

** [[spoiler:It doesn't stop there. She correctly profiles Kougami's path through the house and discovers his message by herself. Those SherlockScan lessons from Professor Saiga [[ChekhovsSkill really paid off.]]]]
* Episode 21 has Masaoka [[spoiler:fight Makishima and manage to get him in a hold. He probably would have beat Makishima, if Makishima hadn't tossed dynamite at a trapped Ginoza. Sadly, this leads to Masaoka pulling a HeroicSacrifice to save his son...but he still kicked Makishima's ass.]]

* The entire first episode for Akane: she stays one step ahead of the criminal, logically deduces what his plans are, coolly disintegrates a rogue construction robot without breaking a sweat (bonus for the blast also evaporating the bombs strapped to its back) and manages to [[spoiler: successfully talk down a criminal with a 302 Crime Coefficient down to the nonlethal zone of 299,]] all while dealing [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim with]] [[LeeroyJenkins uncooperative]] [[KnightTemplar fellow]] [[WithFriendsLikeThese Inspectors]] who are criticizing her every move.

While past experience with Makishima should have rendered this useless, she actually was on the right track this time as it turned out the criminal's Crime Coefficient had actually jumped up by over 50 points (from 23 to 76) from the last time she'd pointed it at him. Then she gets her head put through a window, which would be enough to put almost anyone down (it should be also be noted that this entire time, she has been stripped to her bra and panties, which means no protection for the rest of her skin). But she still [[{{Determinator}} gets back up]] while swearing to protect the hostages, and uses a glass shard to [[EyeScream stab the man's eye out]] before picking up her Dominator again. ''Now'' his Coefficient has hit the triple digits and she can fire. [[spoiler: Unfortunately, so has hers, and Division 3 has been ordered to KillEmAll. She is the first one shot by them.]]
