Lupin Part 2 has answered some of the questions that have been bothering us for months. Just like Assane, our thirst for knowledge and information knows no bounds, so it’s only right for us to dig a little deeper to shed some light on these four additional questions we have. Warning: Big, fat spoilers ahead!
1. Commissioner Dumont was definitely a baddie. But did he have to be kidnapped? Would a blackmail note create the same effect?
We know he’s not the best role model but we can’t deny the fact that he’s just one of the chess pieces in Hubert Pelligrini’s grand scheme of things. Kidnapping him may have gotten Assane the answers he’s been seeking for, but we have a feeling that a well thought out (and written) blackmail note would probably get Commissioner Dumont yapping without the risk of getting caught.
2. Juliette Pellegrini is not her father. Why play with her feelings?
If you’ve watched both parts of the series, you’ll know what we mean. She has no idea what her dad has been up to nor is she involved in any of the heinous extracurricular activities he’s been up to. Plus, would Hubert Pelligrini give up everything to save his daughter when the time comes? We doubt so.
3. Can Assane really trust Guedira?
A leopard never changes its spots but is Guedira a better police officer than mister boss man, Commissioner Dumont? How will he draw the line between doing things right and doing the right things? In more ways than one, Assane is a criminal but would his humane side turn Guedira into his most valued ally?
4. Is it us or does Claire’s new BF seem to have an interesting story?
Everyone that has appeared on Lupin seems to have their own story to tell and with that hypothesis in mind, it seems that Marc, Claire’s new boyfriend, might be more than he lets on. Could he have pulled an Assane and only got closer to Claire as he has an inkling about who Lupin is or does he have a darker side to him that we’ll only find out much later?
