The Detective Is Already Dead Episode 9 Spoilers
In episode 8, Siesta and Kimihiko speculate that Hel may have inherited Cerberus’ powers and his mission. As they begin to plan to stop the serial murders, Alicia insists on joining them in their investigation and, despite Siesta’s warning, decides to look into the case on her own. The following day, the trio goes to meet the mother of a victim, and Siesta’s insensitive questions make everyone uncomfortable. Later, even though she admits that she has been harsh, she argues that it was necessary to gather crucial insight into the murder.
However, Kimihiko disagrees with her, and for the first time in so many years of working together, the duo has a bitter confrontation. The same night, while the sidekick tries to make things up with the legendary detective, he suddenly realizes that Alicia is in trouble thanks to the tracker he has planted in her ring. When they find her lying unconscious in a dark alley, they find a wound on her left shoulder while a policeman who has been a target of attempted heart harvesting gone wrong lays injured with a gun on his side and a stabbing wound on his chest.
Kimihiko lifts Alicia and is rushes to the hospital and ensures that she receives some treatment. But when he later falls asleep, she suddenly disappears from her bed. He is able to track her down again using the ring, but when he arrives at the location, he finds Siesta, who argues that Alicia is the attacker who tried to take the policeman’s heart. But Kimihiko refuses to accept it as a possibility. Alicia soon shows up and argues that she has a split personality, and it’s her other half that has been carrying out the heinous crimes.
When she gets emotional, Kimihiko tries to console her when all of a sudden Alicia jumps forward to stab him, only for Siesta to intervene and restrain her. While the assistant and detective argue about what they should do, Chameleon suddenly shows up and takes Alicia away. In episode 9, Kimihiko and Siesta will head to the secluded island where Alicia has been taken and try to get her back. They may learn all the secrets of the SPES as well.
