This was a really conventional episode, but it was still pretty good. As usual, Psycho-Pass is best when it sticks to action/tension and stays away from the dialogue.

I'm not sure how they can justify sending only four policemen to potentially keep Japan from falling into ruin. Luckily, the story trys to avoid dwelling on this. It sort of kills any sense of urgency though. And the plant can't be turned off without turning off the security system? Who designed this place - TEPCO?

She's probably going to sit in the control room like a good girl while Akane resolves the conflict.
It'd be pretty pointless to do anything with her for that matter. The only way that Yayoi will be allowed to play a significant role in the show is for her to die.

If the show associated Makishima to Akane, there'd be nothing for Kougami to do!
