Galileo ガリレオ Episode 4 Screen Caps

Episode 4 Rots (Necrosis)

The episode opens as a man stands outside an expense house owned by the Shinozaki family, inside the daughter Shinozaki Reiko played by Aoi Sora (Shimokita Glory Days, Jyouou) swims in the indoor pool, as she surfaces she’s startled by Tagami Shoichi played by Katori Shingo (SMAP, Saiyuuki), she backs away in fear from the unknown man, who smiles inserts a rod-like device into the water which injects some bubbles. The next shot is Utsumi Kaoru played by Shibasaki Kou (Orange Days, Good Luck!!) and her partner as they stare into the pool. It’s explained that the vacationing owners of the home returned to find their daughter drowned in the pool. The scene then switches to the medical examiner’s office Jonouchi Sakurako played by Maya Miki (Life, Himitsu no Hanazono) explains to the detectives that the victim died of heart failure and the strange bruise on her breast is necrotic and something the medical examiner has never seen before. The bruise bothers Kaoru, so she goes to see Yukawa Manabu played by Fukuyama Masaharu (Meguri Ai, Perfect Love). Manabu continues his experiments as he listens to her then Kaoru complains that it must be nice to be able to do what you want every day, unlike herself who must work on cases. Manabu tells her that how the skin became necrotic is not a problem of physics and that she depends too much on him.

The series continues with yet another high quality episode, and it’s very easy to see why it remains the top rated show in Japan. As I’ve said in previous posts I really enjoy the chemistry between Kaoru and Manabu and the light-hearted banter, for example when she accuses him of playing around all day in the lab doing whatever interests him and his rebuke. This case is a little different from the previous ones in that the murderer is revealed three minutes into the show, but the tension is actually heightened knowing who the killer is and watching his interaction with the two leads. Excellent guest stars is another strong point of this drama and Shingo was outstanding as the killer, a large departure from his usual comic appearances on SAMP Bistro and in Saiyuuki as Son Gokuu.

I just finished watching it today. A mind duel between two scientists is fun to watch. This episode presents an interesting question: if you kill one person, they call you a murderer but if you kill thousands in the name of....your country, they may call you a hero. GiGi

A mind duel between two scientists is fun to watch. I agree completely this is a very interesting show.

I think that statement may have helped fuel Galileo's suspicions. It would make me suspicious, especially if I lived in a country where the constitution is famous for the renunciation of the right to wage war.
