But first, the pair needs to win their tennis tournament. So, when does Spy x Family Episode 23 come out?

Episode 22 sent Twilight and Nightfall on an important mission

Spy x Family Episode 22 sends Twilight and Nightfall on an “undercover mission,” one that sees them playing tennis in order to track down a painting. The painting in question — or “target,” if you will — is owned by a wealthy businessman named Cavi Campbell. And Nightfall believes it may contain clues about the location of Eastern secrets.

Interestingly enough, Nightfall mentions human experiments while discussing those secrets. It’s too soon to say if such records could reveal more about Anya’s powers. However, given where Bond got his abilities from, it doesn’t seem like a huge jump.

In order to get closer to Cavi Campbell’s painting, Twilight and Nightfall sign up for his underground tennis tournament. The pair makes an impressive show of wiping out their opponents. However, the man in charge is rigging the game against them. Ahead of their match against his kids, Cavi uses the vents in their waiting room to drug them. Twilight and Nightfall notice, but their fate is inescapable.

Needless to say, they’re not functioning as well as they should be when the final match begins. Episode 22 concludes about halfway through it. Can Twilight and Nightfall manage a victory when Spy x Family Episode 23 arrives?

‘Spy x Family’ Predictions: The Anime Will Pit Yor Against Twilight

With poison slowing Twilight and Nightfall down, do they stand a chance of winning the tennis tournament in Spy x Family Episode 23? The pair have likely operated under more challenging circumstances — something Cavi hasn’t considered, since he doesn’t know their true identities.

Needless to say, we’d guess the two will pull through somehow. The preview for episode 23 sees Twilight moving normally again. It also shows a very agitated Cavi Campbell.

More surprising is the brief look at someone with a gun, which suggests Cavi may go to dangerous lengths to win his bets. We’ll have to tune in to see what that’s all about — but hopefully, our main characters make it out of the situation unharmed.
