SPY X FAMILY PART 2 PLOT
In the final episode of Spy x Family Season 2, we find the forger family visiting the Berlin Aquarium by pretending to the neighbors as a happy family.
During the visit, they are sidetracked into a mission to get back a penguin plushie that contains a smuggled chemical weapon.
The forger family manages to retrieve the hazardous substance and catch its recipient. The episode ends with Loid and Yor forced to enact a spy mission outside on the demand of the crying Anya.
Spy x Family season 2 will start from volume four of the manga, whose synopsis reads as follows:
Master spy Twilight is the best at what he does when it comes to going undercover on dangerous missions in the name of a better world. But when he receives the ultimate impossible assignment—get married and have a kid—he may finally be in over his head!
The Forgers look into adding a dog to their family, but this is no easy task—especially when Twilight has to simultaneously foil an assassination plot against a foreign minister! The perpetrators plan to use specially trained dogs for the attack, but Twilight gets some unexpected help to stop these terrorists.
Apart from the new addition, the second part should explore the loose threads from part one. For starters, we haven’t seen Anya in a mission that could be resolved in Season 2 as she would require to set a play date for Bond and Damian s’ dog, Max.
Speaking of Damian, his crush on Anya will be interesting to see as both of them will be working on an origami project which, of course, goes wrong, leading to many hysterical moments.
Yuri was briefly introduced in the first part as Loid s real brother; we expect him to play a much more significant role considering he will be tutoring Anya.
