Interrogator episode 8

Warhammer Review

settings scifi warhammer

I'm watching the Interrogator animated series on Warhammer+, and this is my review of the penultimate episode. There are spoilers in this post, so don't read on if you haven't seen the show and have a good memory.

So we know who's killed Bellona, Jurgen just has to exact his revenge. But the killer got away at the end of the previous episode. This episode is the final hunt, such as it is.

The hunt doesn't take all that long, but it's a proper noir hunt. First, go to the blackmailer with dirt on the Adeptus Arbites agent guarding the entrance. Show to the Adeptus Arbites the vaguely threatening family photo, make some snide comments about how it would be a shame were anything to happen to the family cat. Walk in with guns blazing.

That's mostly how it happens, except the part about the family cat and the guns blazing. But Jurgen gets in with the help of the punk managing the pub from episode 1 or 2. She rescued Jurgen in the previous episode, and she sticks around in this one long enough for some exposition and general backup, and gracefully bows out before the scene is set for the exciting finale.

Filler up

To be honest, this is filler episode 2 after the previous one. It's enjoyable, and I definitely appreciated seeing Adeptus Arbites, so it's not a bad episode. But the mystery was solved episodes ago, and there haven't been any actual blockades since the Duke episode, aside from proximity. The killer is still definitely in Gheisthaven, he's definitely the killer, Jurgen is definitely angry with him. The past two episodes haven't really progressed the story.

I don't mind episodes not advancing the story, but in that case I'd love to make up for it with lore or atmosphere. There hasn't been much of that in these past episodes, either, so these truly are episodes that could probably have been condenced into a 45 second sequence of Jurgen angrily marching across town to Bad Guy Central, and cue episode 9.

That, of course, is next episode. The exciting conclusion! I'm pretty sure I know how it'll end, but I'm still in the dark about the motive, so there's a lot to look forward to.
