I was wondering, after giving "Swimming Lessons" another re-watch; Ryuk used his notebook to end the game because he didn't want to hang around, all bored, if Light somehow managed to survive. But doesn't he have to hang around anyway? I mean, Near now has the notebook. He even used it, it seems. Doesn't that make him the new owner and Ryuk his bitch? I kind of lost track of the whole notebook business. I mean, Light got Rem's. Sidoh got Light's (which was Ryuk's). Mikami got Misa's (which was Gellous). If you think about it, why in the hell was Ryuk even around, anyway? His only reason to stay, the notebook, got taken by Sidoh. Or did he take Rem's place? I'm confused, a little help, /a/.
