Episode 3
"The Killers Gather in the Wasteland”​

Previously:
Lupin realized this Lupin Game was meant to turn everyone into spies for the cops, so he decided to steal an electric car. Lupin eluded Zenigata long enough to get to a hanger where an AW609 vertical takeoff airplane resided. Zenigata thought he had Lupin, but Lupin used the electric car’s battery to get the airplane started and off. They flew the plane until they crashed it, where the gang then holed up in a small, rural hotel and made nabe for dinner. Lupin remarked on how popular the Lupin Game had become.

Later, Lupin and company were on a cruise ship, where Lupin used the game to post his activities. Zenigata’s ICPO assistant, Yata, was frustrated that Zenigata wouldn’t go after Lupin. As such, Zenigata pointed out that the cruise ship was heading for Bwanda, a nation with no treaty with ICPO. Lupin’s actions caused irritation to some members of Marco Polo as well. This caused Marco Polo to hire assassins to try to take Lupin out, especially since Lupin’s actions had caused the game’s popularity to wane heavily.

Lupin discovered Ami had run away after completing her part of the bargain for Lupin. As she wandered the back allies of the town they were in, she ran into shady characters who were keen to take her away for sexual exploits. Lupin arrived to rescue her and schooled the punks in the process. He and Ami then had a chat, where she asked why Lupin wants her around, since their business is concluded. Her research and logic lead her to the conclusion that Lupin is protecting her. Lupin was forced to admit that he wants to keep her safe until the business with Marco Polo dies down.

Assassins interrupted their conversation, and when Lupin discovered the identity of one of them, he knew he was in for a rough time. Elsewhere, Goemon found himself battling a hitman who uses a fishing pole and line as well as a blonde woman. Back at their hotel, Jigen also came under attack by a couple of assassins. Meanwhile, Yata showed Zenigata a website that allows people to bet on when someone will die, in this case, Lupin. Zenigata realized that a hit is out for Lupin. Back in Bwanda, Lupin was trying to get Ami to safety, but ran into several more assassins.

This time:
The top assassins from around the world descend upon Lupin as part of Marco Polo’s “Happy Deathday”. With Jigen and Goemon also under assault, Lupin comes up with a plan to take out all the hired killers at once.

Note:
  • Starting next week, Lupin will be moving up a slot to 12:30am.

Previously on Lupin III: With all these assassins after him, Lupin better hope he doesn't run into Koro-sensei.

This is like a wi-fi Home Alone.

"The pain is proof you are still alive."
Goemon's version of "pain don't hurt."

Quite a way to make it in the tech industry.

I didn't know there was a Yellow Flag in Bwanda.

Lupin is basically like Doctor Who at this point. No matter how unlikely the odds, he's too big to fail.

The old prospector is the number one assassin?

The hunters have become the hunted.

"I only sleep with adults. So...AOC is 16 here, right?"

As far as Lupin and Fujiko are concerned, let's put a big ol' "It's Complicated" on that one.

Well, speak of the endlessly tantalizing devil.

Alright, for real, are we ever gonna get back to an episodic format?

Ami's tech stuff was pretty cool. So far, she's worked out as a better new character than Rebecca, but Rebecca wasn't that bad. Having three cliffhangers in a row is quite different from what we are used to in classic 70s Lupin or even the slightly more serialized Italian Adventure.
