-Miyuki at home on her day off, Natsumi at work & both with a lot on their minds as we open this one: Miyuki's still thinking about what she did to Natsumi as they argued the other night while Natsumi is bothered by the truck accident & Saori's getting hurt because of it. It looks as if their partnership really is over, doesn't it?
-Chief, I know you're saying that the accident wasn't all that much but I should have been more attentive and...Saori? Why are you here? It may be just an ankle sprain but don't push yourself!
-You know, you just gotta love Saori & her can-do attitude...It'll take a lot more than a sprained ankle to keep her down! She'll have to do desk duty for a while though but Natsumi will pick up the slack & continue to train her until she leaves.
-Conference Room...Miyuki lays out the simulation that she put together for patrolling the restricted routes with regular checkpoints manned every 4 hours. A solid plan that gets put into use right away by everyone in the Traffic Section-Including Saori (But let's not have the Chief worry, eh?
-A gift of grapes from a grateful merchant...Thank you! The traffic cops' efforts are helping but until the traffic congestion disappears more violators will appear. Hopefully once the Bokuto Ohashi Bridge (The bridge that we've seen in every episode since the opener) is completed the congestion will ease up to where drivers won't have to take those shortcuts anymore.
-Let's all work hard to...Oh Natsumi, you won't be with us when the bridge is complete! She'll still work hard with you all up until she leaves for the Assault Team so in the meantime, let's enjoy these grapes that the merchant gave us!
-Miyuki-senpai, please stay partners with Natsumi-senpai! You're both the reason why I became a police officer & I'll do my best to improve!
A little encouragement (And a cup of coffee) from Ken gives Miyuki a little more to think about as well...
-A walk brings Miyuki by the Zapper Shop but only long enough to say hi to Sena.
Sena, Daimaru's right-Let Ken & Miyuki work things out for themselves!
-Hi, kids! That car-Look out, Megumi!
You all say that same car (A red Mercedes) comes through here every day? Don't worry-We'll take care of this!
-Megumi just gave Miyuki more encouragement than she can know. My shopping trip can wait now...A little research on these routes...
...There are holes in our coverage where drivers still are taking shortcuts including past Bokuto Elementary School, putting the children who go there at risk. Natsumi, I need your help to keep a major accident from happening!
You've got it, Miyuki-That's what we do!
-Uh oh, that driver in the red Mercedes again but this time our favorite cops are ready for him! They quickly cut him off and...There's only three people that I know who could pull that move off to stop that car: Superman, Wonder Woman & now Natsumi Tsujimoto! Bokuto won't be the same without her!
-Some first aid & a couple of apologies go a long way, don't they? Good to see Miyuki realize that she needs to grow a bit as a person-And she'll be the better for it, I'm sure.
-Oh, hi Miyuki. I'm working on this motorcycle and...Well, since you're good with motorcycles too what do you think of these settings? Go all the way with them? Ok...
...Miyuki! Let's go drinking before we go home-I left my bike at home so be ready to drink the night away!
-The two of you don't have to report every little change to the Chief, you know-You're just going back to how things were so carry on.
The storm has passed & until Natsumi leaves for the Assault Team, "Bokuto's Best Partners"
are together again!
