In the eighth episode of “Spy x Family,” titled “The Counter-Secret Police Cover Operation,” Loid is summoned by his Handler, who shares critical information with him. Meanwhile, Yor’s younger brother finally hears about her marriage and is shocked that she has kept it a secret from him. He decides to meet the Forgers to learn more about the man who started his sister. Here’s everything you need to know about the ending of ‘Spy x Family’ Episode 8. SPOILERS AHEAD!
Spy x Family Episode 8 Summary
At school, Anya is in maths when the teacher asks the students an easy question. Feeling she knows the answer, she proudly tells the teacher, but realizes she is absolutely wrong. Meanwhile, Loid meets Sylvia, who provides an update on the genius spy’s mission. She also tells him that Twilight is expected to help Anya reach eight Stellas in four months through other people following the mission. The unreasonably high expectation makes Twilight nervous, of course, but he tries to hide it.
As if it weren’t challenging enough to help Anya become a top student at school, Sylvia brings him the bad news that one of their City Hall informants was recently caught. She says the country’s counter-intelligence agency is slowly becoming quite strict as they seem to realize what’s at stake after the recent infiltration activities. Sylvia advises Twilight to be very careful as the enemies will now be everywhere, meaning even one mistake can cost a lot.
Meanwhile, in City Hall, a man named Jim Hayward is arrested by the Secret Service on suspicion of espionage. Yor, who works there, hears about the incident from her colleagues, who also explain to her that the man has leaked sensitive documents for money to some shady organization. The secret killer is approached by another co-worker, who wonders why she didn’t tell her brother about her marriage. Yor panics and makes the excuse that she forgot, which only makes her look bad as she exchanged vows with Loid about a year ago – at least according to their marriage certificate.
As if it doesn’t look bad for her already, the same colleague tells Yor that her boyfriend told her that her brother would call her soon to discuss the same. It later emerges that he plans to visit Yor’s house to meet the Forgers in person. Yor becomes extremely nervous when she hears this and immediately discusses the same with Loid. The secret spy devises a strategy to avoid being exposed as a fake family in front of Yor’s brother.
Spy x Family Episode 8 Ending: Who is Yuri Briar? What is he doing?
When Jim Hayward is taken to Secret Security headquarters, he is interrogated there by the officials. The organization is responsible for maintaining peace in their country and is also known as the secret police, so they don’t hesitate to hurt people to get what they want. However, when Jim refuses to confess to his crimes, the boss sends a special officer to question the accused about his involvement. It turns out that this officer is none other than Yuri Briar, Yor’s younger brother. He poses as a diplomat to hide his involvement with the secret police and has had an excellent track record to date.
Although Jim hasn’t been very open to confessing his crimes until now, Yuri manages to get the information out of him. He posts some photos taken by the spies of Jim selling sensitive documents. Although he says he did all this for money and girls with no political motives, Yuri doesn’t hesitate to beat him up for betraying his country. He openly speaks of his desire to protect his mother nation from all enemies, especially since it also guarantees the safety of his sister, who sacrificed so much for him.
How does Loid find out the truth about Yuri Briar?
After the interrogation, Yuri visits the Forgers and has already decided that he will not hesitate to kill his sister’s wife if he turns out to be deceitful. However, Loid leaves no stone unturned and manages to impress him with his cooking. But Yuri is reluctant to give him credit. When he gives the couple a bottle of wine from Hungary, Loid begins to question him about his work. The secret spy lies that he visited Hungary as a student. When he begins to question Yuri further about the specifics of the town, its restaurants, food and places, he notices something very interesting.
All his answers are exactly the same as those of the secret police for agents posing as diplomats to avoid any suspicion. A common mistake with the manual the secret police give their officers is that they haven’t been updated in a while. Since the specific details, such as the price of the beer and the name of the chefs told by Yuri, are not accurate and are almost identical to those of the secret police, there is no doubt that he for them works.
Will Briar accept Loid as his sister’s husband? Why does he doubt their relationship?
While Loid finds out that Yuri is working with the secret police, Yuri on the other hand is not only ignorant but also very unstable during his first encounter with the Forgers. He has already decided that he will not accept Loid as Yuri’s husband until he meets him. Therefore, Loid’s maturity and other qualities do not help the couple much.
Specifically, he doubts that Yor hasn’t told him about her marriage for nearly a year, which is rather odd. However, Yor manages to make silly excuses that he seems to accept at first. But when Loid and Yor act weird when they accidentally touch each other’s hands, he becomes suspicious again. He asks them to prove that they have been married for a year by kissing each other right in front of him.
While Yor is embarrassed, Loid doesn’t mind and leans forward for the kiss. The episode ends there, but according to the manga, the alleged couple won’t kiss each other in the end. However, they will be able to convince Yuri that they are a married couple who have been together for a while.
