The Promised Neverland (Episode 8)

It looks like Sister Krone has got her dream job and is heading out, but what does this mean for the escape plans?

What did you watch? This was episode eight of The Promised Neverland and… wow! I’m going to try to keep this opening spoiler free, so all I’m going to say is if you haven’t seen this one yet, do not forget to blink or breath. The tension has been building for several weeks now and there’s only so much it can hold before exploding.

For me, this was the best episode yet. Even better than episode one and unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know what happened there. Anyhow, I can’t wait any longer. The spoilers will start now…

What happened? Mom had given Sister Krone a letter and stood blankly before her as she opened it and digested the contents. Damn, that woman has a poker face and a half. Anyhow, it turns out that Krone has been awarded a Mom position at a different plant and she must leave immediately.
