During an assassination mission, Yor takes a bullet to the posterior and is in subsequent pain because of this. Why does Loid decide to ask her on a date now of all times?
A Bullet In The Rear
After all the flips, stunts, and tricks that we’ve seen Yor perform to protect Anya, she ends up getting shot in her rear by an enemy who she thought she put down previously? Even the Thorn Princess has her off days, clearly. The way Loid spent the entire episode guessing what’s wrong with her and failing massively while Anya knew as soon as she walked through the door was so funny.
Scruffy Head’s Undependability
Scruffy Head (his actual name is Franky, but I think Scruffy Head sounds much better) really needs to get over his jealousy towards Loid and become a better babysitter. If Anya suggests anything that has the slightest amount of excitement related to it, Scruffy Head is going to be in on it. Loid has definitely realized that he can’t be trusted to be a responsible adult in any situation but still turns to him because he doesn’t have anyone else to ask. It sure makes for a funny sequence of scenes though.
How much poison would you have to drink (and not die) before your body builds up an immunity to it? I mean sheesh, I get that she’s an assassin and all but after the first couple of poison doses (assuming they’re not super strong) most people would just drop dead, how her body has rejected death and become immune to poison is a question I doubt science can answer.
Anya Saves The Day
Great to see that Anya isn’t just watching Bondman, she’s implementing the spy tactics that she sees on screen to take out real-life threats to her family, haha. Another question that seems beyond science – how on earth did she make a peanut bomb? That one seems slightly more feasible than being immune to poison, if there’s any aspiring scientists reading feel free to enlighten us in the comments!
First Thoughts On This Season
This episode was really funny and had a really good pacing to it. If the series keeps this level of comedy and plot structure throughout the rest of the season, it’ll easily be better than the first season. Leave your thoughts in the comments below!
