Spy x Family preview shows four new characters
The official preview trailer for Spy x Family episode 6 was shown after the fabulous ending theme sequence concluded last week, titled “The Friendship Scheme.”
Thankfully, avid fans of the series were quick to share the trailer on social media, with episode 6 set to introduce four new characters into the series.
The four new characters are part of Anya’s new class at Eden College; Damian Desmond (son of Loid’s target), Becky Blackwell (daughter of a military company CEO), Emile Elma and Ewen Egeberg (both are part of Damian’s ‘entourage’).

A short recap of episode 5 last week
Spy x Family episode 5 was titled “Will They Pass or Fail?” and opened with the Forger family finding out that they had failed to make the first round of admissions to Eden College.
Thankfully, Master Henderson catches them before they leave and reveals that Anya is top of the additional admission list; if a family drops out, then she will be immediately welcomed as an Eden College student.
The family didn’t have to wait long when three days later Loid receives a phone call telling him that Anya has been accepted. Almost immediately, there is a knock at the door by Franky a.k.a. Scruffy Scruff, who is here to celebrate their accomplishment with food and copious amounts of wine.
Franky and Anya guilt trip Loid into giving Anya whatever she wants; which turns out to be a version of “save Anya from the castle” as part of her obsession with the Bondman spy cartoon. Loid wastes no time in securing a plane to take them to the castle shown in the cartoon, which had been remodelled as a theme park.
Agents from his organisation attend the castle and under the instructions of the evil Scruffy Scruff, try to stop Loid from rescuing Princess Anya. From rubber ball gunfights and hand-to-hand combat to a pop quiz and ziplining through explosions, Loid is able to make it to the final stage.
There he is met with a ‘Witch’, a.k.a. a very drunk Yor, who goes all out to stop Bondman, but who quickly falls asleep when her high heel snaps…Scruffy Scruff goes down with a single back-handed strike as Anya runs to her father with tears in her eyes.
The episode ends with Loid congratulating Anya on getting into school, as she promises to do her best for the (secret) mission and to make him proud.
