Oh, it’s not just me that thinks that. That’s pretty much the entire fandom’s perspective on the situation (even outside of tumblr) It’s actually quite obvious while you’re watching the show. There is a tremendous amount of foreshadowing, especially in relation to Makishima.
I’ll try and list some of the examples! I may miss some.
- Since the beginning of the show, even in episode 2, Akane’s friends always talked about how Akane was different and a “mental beauty.” Her psycho pass is always powder-blue. She excelled well in everything Sibyl threw at her and it’s one of the reasons why she was essentially able to pick her job which isn’t the norm in the PP world. People are categorized by Sibyl based on what they would be best at. Akane could have gone into anything, though.
- In episode 9, Kougami teases Akane about her hue and worrying whether or not it will go up after visiting professor Saiga. (This is foreshadowing for ep 11)
- In episode 10, Kougami and Yuki briefly say things about how Akane is just a little different from everyone else. Then immediately following this, Makishima appears in ep 11 and it’s revealed he cannot be judged by the dominator. It’s revealed that criminally asymptomatic people exist.
- This entire sequence of events is extremely significant because when Kougami witnessed the death of a friend, his hue skyrocketed and he became a latent criminal and then an enforcer. Akane didn’t even really need therapy. She went into it, and was told she was getting better immediately and was discharged.
