Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~: Irrational Behavior

Currently finished: Episode 7

In fictions, irrational behaviors of certain kind usually get by with a free pass because it is a work of fiction. However, problem arises when there is a conflict exists in the among those irrational behaviors themselves. And that's what happened in episode 7 of Phantom.

I don't have much problem with all the irrational choices of actions in the past episodes, because they're consistent and things work that way. But, driving recklessly on a freeway soon after being told they don't want to be exposed just doesn't seem to be something a rational personal would do. Though ultimately there is no consequences of these actions, I just think story writers really need to pay attention to them because even though this is not the case, sometime details like these could make or break an otherwise brilliant story.
