Spy x Family Episode 7, dubbed “The Target’s Second Son,” focuses primarily on Anya’s life at Eden College. The latest installment takes viewers through her hilarious attempts to apologize to Damian, as well as her struggles with the school curriculum. However, following the credits, the anime introduces a storyline that looks to continue into episode 8. It involves Yor’s brother.

Viewers have heard a lot about Yuri, and they’ve seen Yor speaking on the phone with him. This week, he’ll show up to meet her husband. That means Twilight will need to lean into his Loid persona. They’ll also have to ramp up the romance, something they’ve mostly avoided despite living together.

From Yor’s recollections, it sounds like Yuri is incredibly smart — which means he might see through their facade. Only time will tell how his impromptu visit goes. So, when is the release date for Spy x Family Episode 8?
