A boy who loves the sea and dreams of becoming a seafaring man is the only witness to a terrible crime. But his mother pressures him to not report it. What reason can she possibly have for obstructing justice? And will Winspector be able to protect the boy when the criminal comes around to eliminate the only witness?
Sorry for posting this late on my blog. Some of you who follow me on Twitter saw it though.
Most of the seaside scenes were filmed at the port in Yokohama. There's a building in the first scene that was still being built when the episode was filmed that's a major hotel in Yokohama now.
|Yokohama in 1989. Note the unfinished hotel on the right side.|
|Yokohama in 2014 with the finished hotel.|
The word the boy signals at the end is "ARIGATO". I did the best I could to convey that.
Both female guest stars who appear in this episode were active in TV dramas. Takashi's mother's actress did some anime voiceover roles as well.
Bikel fans rejoice, because next week is an episode all about him... and it explains a lot about him!
