Light meets with L and the detectives. To test Light's analytical skills, L has him listen to the recordings confiscated by the team to determine if there are any clues in the reader's voice.
The team then broadcasts a recording made by L and Light to trick the second Kira into replying. Misa unwittingly reveals important details about the properties of the Death Note and shinigami when she responds and Light begins to panic upon hearing this message.
