Spy x Family Spoilers and What to Expect

For those who have kept up, the situation is tense for Anya Forger, as she finds herself, along with Damian Desmond and Emile Elman, wrapped up in a hostage situation that could turn explosive. Using her telepathy, she determines the motive of the involved parties, and bravely takes a stand as part of a gambit to prevent the worst. She approaches Billy Squire, one of the Red Circus captors, on the bus as chapter 73 ends.

While there are no current raw scans indicating what’ll happen, readers have speculated she could appeal to Billy, who lost his daughter after she was killed at a Red Circus protest. The chapter did plenty of work setting up his sympathy for the children held in the balance of this situation, and the grim death toll that his comrades seem to only see as a means to an end, collateral damage while they fend off the SSS.

Anya, thanks to her abilities, hears what Vadim (Billy’s comrade) is plotting, knowing that he’s content with killing civilians, ideally hitting the State Council building but willing to settle for taking out SSS soldiers. What makes this worse, however, is the SSS guards and their readiness to storm the bus and kill the Red Circus members aboard. There’s plenty to potentially see in the upcoming chapter, whether Anya appeals to Billy’s tragic past, whether Damian has any part in what comes next, and how the situation resolves itself. Whatever the conclusion may be, it’ll be exciting to see what comes next!

Spy x Family released on Shonen Jump+ on March 25, 2019. It also has received an anime tv series, as well as an upcoming anime film.
