Love of Kill Episode 4 might finally shed some light on Chateau's past. So far, the josei anime has hinted that something tragic happened, which still affects her today. Similarly, Ryang-ha must face a troubled past. Will these experiences bring the two killers closer?
If you can't wait to find out, read on. Below, you will find everything you need to know about Episode 4 of Love of Kill, including its release date, airing time, and more!
Love of Kill Episode 3 Recap
Love of Kill or Koroshi Ai, as is the show's original Japanese title, is based on a manga of the same name, written and illustrated by Fe. The story follows Chateau Dankworth, a quiet, stoic assassin, tasked with killing Son Ryang-ha - also a notorious killer, legendary for having killed 18 officials in one night. Their first encounter reveals that Song is also after Chateau.
As it turns out, though, he doesn't plan on persecuting her in the way you would expect. Song offers her gifts in the form of targets, and endeavors to get to know her better. In time, the two end up working together - but don't worry, the story is still more about action and mystery, rather than romance as such.
In the third episode of Love of Kill, Chateau finds herself in awkward situations while recuperating in Ryang-ha's apartment. While she doesn't seem fonder of the assassin than she used to be, she becomes oddly defensive when her boss asks about her connection to him.
Ryang-ha tries to settle old scores with the man behind Chateau's accident, before showing up at her doorstep. Against her better judgment, Chateau lets him in but refuses to answer any of his questions about her past. When she receives a voice message from her - presumably adoptive - mother, she can't help Ryang-ha finding out that her father is dead.
It is apparent that Chateau's past weighs heavily on her, though, at three episodes, she still feels like a mystery, as she doesn't demonstrate any feeling other than annoyances at Ryang-ha's advances. It's this particular aspect that might alienate some viewers. The forthcoming episodes need to put more work on their dynamic to give us something we can truly root for!
