What happened in The Eminence in Shadow Season 2 Episode #8?
Episode #8 is a filler episode, serving as its own mini-series focusing on the Seven Shades. After Skel and Po steal some hot spring tickets from Cid’s room, Seven Shades takes it as code from Shadow that they must go on a date with them. This leads to hilarious antics between characters who rarely interact, as well as showcasing characters like Eta and Zeta, who have barely appeared in the anime thus far. It also gives the Seven Shades some much-needed relaxation, even if they have to fight a water dragon before the episode ends.
The episode also features other characters introduced this season.
The Eminence in Shadow Season 2 Episode #9 will feature Cid again
While the brief diversion to the hot springs is interesting, the focus of the show is on Cid’s adventures, so episode #9 will almost certainly reintroduce him into the story. It’s unclear where Cid went after the events of episode #7, but since he felt the need to avoid Shadow Garden for a bit and he was out of town in episode #8, it’s possible he went to a new location. There are still a lot of important areas in the world that fans haven’t seen yet, so this installment could be a great exploration of one of those areas. This could also involve Cid in another kingdom’s politics, which could be interesting to see.
Regardless of the exact plot of episode #9 and where it takes place, as long as it mainly focuses on Cid’s antics it will be an enjoyable watch. Cid is the main reason why The Eminence in Shadow is one of the best isekai in all of anime so the series shouldn’t ignore him for too long. Luckily, it seems Eminence in Shadow Season 2 episode #9 will bring the anime back to its typical fun formula.
