The Promised Neverland (Episode 7)

Sister Krone tempts the children with an offer that’s hard to refuse, but whether either side will remain honourable is yet to be seen.

What did you watch? For whatever reason, this weeks episode didn’t load up on Funimation at the scheduled time, so I had to put my viewing back until the evening, which meant a blanket ban on social media until then. You know I hate the spoilers, especially so soon after it’s aired. At least give us a chance to watch it.

Do you see what I did there? I moaned about possible spoilers to fill up the preview area and not subject others to spoilers. See, it can be done. Also on the topic of spoilers, I read the first manga volume and was surprised at some of the stuff that didn’t make it into the anime, but don’t worry, I won’t talk about that either.

What happened? At the end of last week, Sister Krone jumped Norman, Emma, Don, and Gilda in the woods and offered to make a deal. Well, great news, we started off at the exact moment so we didn’t have to wait long to see what the deal was. Basically, Krone wants to be the Mother and it would help her if the children escaped.

The Promised Neverland (Episode 6)

Who’s behind the door? That’s all we want to know. Is it Mother or Sister Krone, maybe it’s Ray or Norman. Damn it! Who is it?

What did you watch? I’m really enjoying this series. The tone is dark and sinister, but slow and tense. Much like these openings of my reviews. I know you’re here to see what I thought of the episode, but I keep you waiting for a couple of paragraphs, because of the spoilers.

In all honestly, I don’t entirely trust anything we’ve seen or heard so far, so who knows what’s going on and what’s a spoiler or a red herring. Anyhow, that should put us in the clear, so let’s get on with it.

What happened? Last week’s episode left us with a nail-biting final moment and thankfully we picked up exactly where we left off. Don and Gilda had gone on an ill-advised exploration into Mother’s office and found the secret door. Then as they stood and stared like a couple of rabbits caught in the headlights, the office door slowly crept open.

The Promised Neverland (Episode 5)

With plans to move the escape forwards and a traitor in their midst, nobody said it was going to be easy, but will letting more people in on the secret help or hinder their progress?

What did you watch? All right, here we go again. As always this first little bit here is spoiler free and ensures that nothing pops up inadvertently. This is a great series, however, I can’t help but feel that this episode didn’t quite live up to the rest of the series so far.

It was still fascinating, but it didn’t quite grab me the way the previous ones did. So, that’s enough of this inane waffling. Let’s dive into episode five of The Promised Neverland.

What happened? In the final seconds of the last episode, Norman accused Ray of being the spy. It led to a shocked face, then some awkward stares in the brief moment of silence before the credits rolled. So, Ray’s had a whole week to come up with an excuse. This is going to be good.

The Promised Neverland (Episode 4)

Not knowing who to trust will make escaping from the orphanage that much tougher, but can they really trust anyone?

What did you watch? So that was episode four of the Promised Neverland and it was a good one. With this series, I find that I cannot take my eyes off the screen, even for a second. There are so many little details and clues to watch for, if you blink you’ll miss them.

As per normal, this is just me filling up the preview section. I don’t want to give away spoilers to people that don’t want them, unlike the two instances I’ve stumbled upon on Twitter so far. One spoiled the first episode and another something yet to come. I am more than a little annoyed.

What happened? Mother gives Sister Krone a dressing down, on one hand promising to help her become a Mother if she behaves and with the other threatening to destroy her if she steps out of line again. That’s right, again. She definitely knows more than she should.

The Promised Neverland (Episode 3)

The arrival of another adult at the orphanage changes things for the children. Will they be able to adjust their plans in time to escape?

What did you watch? I managed to watch episode three of the Promised Neverland four minutes after it aired. No more shutting down the internet and hiding from spoilers for me. Don’t worry, I’ll go over what happened shortly. I’m just filling up the preview with spoiler free waffle.

All right, that should do it. If you’re reading beyond here, I am going to assume that you’ve seen the first three episodes or are one of those people that likes spoilers…

What happened? Sister Krone joins the staff at the orphanage and immediately sets about getting to know the children. Mother tells her in no uncertain terms that she is just a guard to watch the children. She also confides in her that two of the children know about the harvest.
