Hey /a/

I recently watched Death Note (I don't watch a lot of anime) and I was wondering about something. In one of the episodes Misa sends a public tape as a response to Light's fake Kira tape where she says they would recognize each other by their shinigami.

At this point, L freaks out and falls out of his chair. But the thing is I don't get why. It's never explained in the anime (maybe it was in the manga) and L seems to be genuinely afraid of shinigami.

So does anyone know?
