Very Interested to see Loid on the back foot without intel for this one, I thought he was gonna have a spy job while he was there but he’s gonna be the wildcard

Down to see Yor kill some people, though I forget if we've ever seen someone get murked on-panel. I know we see Yor cleaning up after a routine assignment, at least.

We've seen her fantasies of killing, but we've not seen her actually do it in RL - we get the events around it, but not the killing itself.

Good point. Endo could do a gag where someone only sounds like they're getting killed, though.

Her job is half the premise for this, and I'd hate for her to drop it for what is still a lie. Half a lie. Kiss your wife Lloyd, you know you want to.
Once the main plotline (and manga) is over, and all secrets are out and resolved, Yor and Lloyd can both retire from their black ops job and try a somewhat normal life as retired super spy and super assassin with their psychic daughter and future sight dog, but until then no thanks.

Also no way Twilight doesn't have a direct body count of his own, even if it should be lower than Thorn Princess's.

At the worst, she is going to hammer throw someone off the ship and they're going to skip across the water like a stone for 20 leagues.

He's been involved in at least one shoot-out, and it's at least strongly implied in the first Extra chapter, with him walking away from an explosion site with a hella lot of dead goons behind him.

Anya did see someone die back in Mission 1, it's just Endo's never gone there with it, having her read their minds as they die.

Given that she's visited Loid at work in a hospital, there's lots of dark possibilities for mind-reading, that the manga is likely not going to go into.

0.000% of Communism has been built. Evil child-murdering billionaires still rule the world with a shit-eating grin.

I like how the recent chapter acknowledged the fact that Yor's motivation doesn't really make sense any more now than her brother is an adult with a good (at least financially) job.

Yeah, this. A slow start, perhaps, but I'm really liking the focus they are giving to Olka and her son who might, or might not be an esper. Also of course Yor is bad at the bodyguarding, her whole thing is being a murder savant.

Yeah, I just figured it was because Yor is bad with babies that Game started crying. We know from Anya that the thoughts she picks up are interpreted through her own lens, and she misses a good bit as a 5 or 6 year old so there's no reason an infant would understand anything even if they could hear it.

So now Yor is dressed up while looking exactly like the old photograph of Shaty, and she's also holding her baby boy. I wonder if that was intentional. It's a good thing that Yor is Yor, or I'd be more worried.

Also that Mom outfit is absolutely adorable and I need Loid to see her in it.
