Joker Game Episode 7: A disappointing lack of Benedict Cumberbatch


Nooooooooooooo!!! Not sure what to feel about this yet! Well, I don't see a swastika, so I guess this isn't Germany.

We're intentionally hiding this guy's face with the camera perspective, so he's clearly important!

He's doing a crossword puzzle in pen? He's clearly a smart guy! You might as well hand the guy a Rubik's Cube.

THE HERO HAS ARRIVED!

Dolphins summoned by the power of whistling! Now I want to try this...someone get me a ticket on a cruise tour!

I'm guessing this old guy is going to be able to solve the line that our main character asked the worker earlier. What was it? Something ending in "A"?

Well, this is World War II and they just said "Enigma". That can only mean one thing...this is The Imitation Game again! Woohoo!

See? Maybe this episode is a precursor to the movie and this Japanese spy steals the Enigma machine that gets used by Alan Turing to break the code. Still, that's just wishful thinking. It's Japan, so why would they help the Allies?

Wow, this guy got found out really quickly. He just gives himself away because of a crossword puzzle. Worst spy ever. But hey...anything to make these Japanese spies look good, right?

Also, should I find it weird that this episode relies on the assumption that a cryptographer would like crossword puzzles? Heck...how did the guy know the random worker who gave him the answer "Poseidon" wasn't the spy?

His bionic eyes have facial recognition capabilities linked with Interpol's database!

This is going to be followed by a monologue at the end of the episode where the Japanese spy says "I planned for this possibility" like all of the other episodes, isn't it?

Dude...you're a spy, right? Why would you drink this?

See? Anyway, given that there have been only so many characters introduced so far and the fact that the Japanese spy seems surprised, I'm going to guess that the poison was put there by the woman we saw earlier (she's probably Cerberus).

I knew the dog was the hero all along!

The culprit! Also, this guy's plastic surgery must have been horrible if he wasn't even able to hide himself from the only two people looking for him on this ship.

Oh...that's what the scene at the beginning of the episode meant. It was her husband's ship. Got it.

I much prefer bittersweet endings like this. He doesn't save the woman by making her a spy but rather chooses to take care of the child to give her peace of mind.

I think I'm starting to get the hang of these episodes...
