Episode 12 –
[details=spoiler]The hospital is surrounded and Fourth is going after the “terrorists”. Yukki is still going back and forth with his feelings for Yuno and now he is asking her for a date in the middle of this mess! I like how Ninth tells Fourth she wants him to commit suicide as part of her demands. Of course, Fourth rejects her demands and tells her that there is no escape. The SWAT team captures Yukki and holds him for Fourth. Fourth must realize that he’s handling this situation incorrectly, because when Nishijima questions him, Fourth orders him back to the station. Perhaps he is trying to save Nishijima from becoming involved in his mistakes.
Yuno arrives to save Yukki and once again, I have to admire her skill with a gun. However, she is too late to prevent Fourth from taking Yukki as his own hostage. But she grabs the grenade Ninth gave to Yukki and now we have a standoff! Meanwhile, Ninth plants a bomb under the boy’s bed and escapes through a window – right into Nishijima! Yuno convinces Fourth to let Yukki go, and then activates the grenade anyway, hoping to kill Fourth along with herself. It was only a stun grenade? Way to give me a heart attack! But then Ninth’s bomb goes off.
Luckily, Yukki and Yuno are all right, but so is Fourth and now he has Yuno as a hostage. If Yukki shoots, his diary tells him that he will kill Yuno and Yuno wants to die so that he may live. However, Yukki doesn’t want her to give up her dream of marrying him and realizes that he may actually love her after all. Yukki fires the gun anyway and somehow does manage to hit Fourth. Fourth is still determined to kill them and become God, but Nishijima shows up in time with Ninth. Ninth managed to convince Nishijima that Fourth was behind everything for his own gain. She has a recording of their “deal” as proof.
Nishijima says that Fourth is under arrest and Ninth tells him that since he is now a criminal, his diary is useless. Fourth asks about his wife and son and finds out that they were rescued before the bomb exploded. He somehow seems at peace with himself now and asks Ninth to take care of his son. She accepts and he apologizes to Yukki and Yuno before breaking his phone in half and disappearing. I wonder how Nishijima sees this? He looked pretty stunned!
Afterwards, Nishijima gets put in charge of the case and Yukki and Yuno are cleared of all charges. And of course Ninth managed to escape again. For now, Yuno gets her happy ending when she and Yukki have their date. She even manages to get Yukki to kiss her and it was funny when she tells him that he has gotten better at kissing! Akise sends Yukki an e-mail warning him against Yuno, but Yuno deletes it before Yukki can see it. Once on the train, Yukki remarks on Yuno’s large duffle bag and Yuno tells him some of what is in it – clothes, medicine, etc. But the “medicine” looks dangerous and are those skulls??!![/details]
