I do agree with the speculation that Yor and Lloyd will be set against each other, though. It's just too perfect. Also Franky should compete with Daybreak for Nightfall's affections

The only thing that I think will happen for sure with Spy X Family is that one or more of Anya's biological parents will be alive still regardless of anything established so far- and you'll know the manga is headed towards the end when they show up.

True reality is on this side of the screen



They're set against eachother at a masquerade party so even if they meet they don't recognise eachother and only Anya ends up aware.

"So, our psychic child program was destroyed a year ago, but turns out there might be a survivor after Desmond 'Our Leader' detected psychic brainwaves. Investigate this school for anything unusual..."
"Oh, my stepdaughter goes there, how convenient! No, no, she's my husband's biological dauhter, definitely not escaped from a lab. But that Becky girl has been giving my husband strange looks..."

the problem with yor and loid being set against each other is that yor doesn't wear any sort of disguise. if they meet while working, her secret immediately stops being a secret.

Yor may not wear a disguise, but she's such an unstoppable, lightning-fast engine of destruction that Loid might not get a proper look at her face anyway. Just a dark, murderous blur.

If they do get set against each other, it'll be in a situation where they'll need to compete for the same target without knowing it. Twilight will be tasked with protecting someone at a school gathering of some sort, and he'll come up with some contrived excuse to go; Yor will be tasked with eliminating the same person and will also come up with some lame excuse to go to the same event. Cue both of them smiling nervously at each other while pulling off super secret special moves while the other isn't looking. In the end Bond and Anya will *shenanigans* and they'll all go home none the wiser.

Theyre gonna kiss while in disguise and Yorís gonna feel all guilty about it. Twilight is gonna notice this new behavior and think he did something wrong and finally put the moves on his wife (Bond and Anya help a lot), then they will kiss again and they finally figure it out

What if Loid just fails to recognize Yor? "Hm, this woman looks like my wife...she also sounds like my wife...but she acts nothing like my perfectly normal wife, so this must some sort of weird coincidence."

Yor figures it out first, so she tries to revert to acting like his wife while trying to land a killing blow on Loid when he isnít looking. Sheís hesitant, so she ends up just missing several times, breaking furniture or forcing Loid to matrix dodge multiple stabbings and slicings.

Loid, for his part, just thinks his wife is being passive aggressive and spends the whole time trying to figure out whatís got her all grumpy.

While it's fun to theorize about it, I think it's far too early to go for Loid vs. Yor showdown. We still don't know basically anything about who is employing Yor, or how, or why, so I assume this will be about the organization (Garden?), the various characters in it and their relationship with Yor. We were already teased about like 3 of her colleagues in this chapter, I assume that at least one of them will be introduced soon.

Loid cannot recognize his wife because her face is completely drenched in blood. (not hers)

There has to be a whole pantomime routine where they unknowingly back into each other, but look around in just the right ways so they don't catch sight or bump into one another.

Honestly I think there's decent odds that Franky calling all those contacts might have pinged someone's radar and either they, or he, are the target. Would justify the chapter being mostly about him finding a cat. Or just good old fashion political traitor that needs purging and we just get more of the organizations structure and hierarchy.

Well we have two weeks to speculate their code names and with Yor's being "Thorn Princess" and I'm banking on the rest of them also having fairytale inspired code names. Gonna say one of the guys is named "Woodcutter" and his last name will ironically be Grimm.

It certainly seems like it, though I think I might be a little too dumb to understand what exactly is being foreshadowed, unless there's some kind of hidden land where they all speak like Shakespeare, or if there's a research lab where they all speak classically for some reason.

Alternatively its "plant royalty" for the naming scheme so we get like leaf prince and flower king and uh root queen.

Powers aside she's pretty smart for her age really to even be keeping up then.

My mom was a first-grade teacher for over 40 years and according to her there's an absolutely massive difference between young first-graders and older ones (mostly in terms of stuff like ability to pay attention and stay focused). There's apparently a huge gap in maturity within the space of just a year or so around that age.
