Cyberpunk 2077: You have my word # 2 ~ Plot summary
Cyberpunk 2077: You have my word # 2 picks up where the last number left off. We see a white-haired woman stop by Teresa’s in the middle of nowhere and inform her and her family of Oriona’s death. None of them take it well. Teresa, in particular, takes it harder than all of them. So much so that she decides to return to Night City. His goal ? Find his daughter’s killer (s) and eliminate them. However, many of them have to.
A quick stop at her daughter’s funeral reveals one of her male colleagues, so Teresa starts with him first in Cyberpunk 2077: You have my word # 2. She tracks him down to his gym, ambushes him in the shower, and tries to get him to reveal what happened to Oriona. Unfortunately, he’s a bit uncooperative. Worse yet, her increases are much better than Teresa’s. He beats her hands down, and she barely escapes with a broken jaw and her life.
Teresa and her daughter’s friend manage to escape to a ripper that Teresa knows. Said ripperdoc doesn’t just fix his jawbone with a nice shiny chrome prosthesis, he also provides him with a pistol that can shoot through walls. Said gun is also found to be good enough to shoot through the legs. This guy has essentially had his right leg turned into gallows of chunks of flesh and bone, which makes him much easier for Teresa to interrogate. Threatened with death, the guy reveals that he and Orona’s mutual friend Cormac arranged to meet her alone just before her death. Houston, I think we have the number one suspect. Oh, and Teresa executes it too, but that’s to be expected for someone who is complicit in Oriona’s death. So what happens next? Well I guess we’ll find out in the next issue of Cyberpunk 2077: you have my word.
Cyberpunk 2077: You have my word # 2 ~ The Good
The story is arguably the best part of Cyberpunk 2077: You have my word # 2. Basically, it’s the story of a mother who takes revenge for the murder of her daughter. I quite like this kind of Mama Bear story, so it’s definitely a plus in my book.
Which brings me to the other great thing about Cyberpunk 2077: You have my word # 2: Therese. He’s a pretty good main character. Even when clearly outmatched, she still deals a lot of damage and even escapes. She’s basically a badass old lady, and there aren’t many in fiction. It’s great to see one more here.
The work of art in Cyberpunk 2077: You have my word # 2 remains as beautiful as before. Jesus Hervas did a great job on the art, character design, backgrounds, etc. It all does a great job of immersing you in the world of Cyberpunk 2077, almost making you feel like you are in Night City yourself.
Cyberpunk 2077: You have my word # 2 ~ The bad
Regardless of that screenshot of the cop blob above, there isn’t much I can say that was wrong. Cyberpunk 2077: You have my word # 2. It would be really nitpicking. Guess the only thing I would complain is Teresa brutally executes this guy after questioning him. The guy gave some useful information and begged for his life at the end. Although this is calmed a bit by the fact that he probably suspected that Cormac had murdered Oriona, or at least had been involved in it, and had done nothing about it. In Teresa’s eyes, that would make him an accomplice in Oriona’s murder, and she wouldn’t be wrong.
Cyberpunk 2077: You have my word # 2 shows Teresa seeking revenge for the murder of her daughter. It’s pretty bloody revenge, and it’s off to a good start. We’ll just have to see how far Teresa’s revenge takes her in Night City in the next issue of this. Cyberpunk 2077 comic book series from Dark Horse Comics and CD Projekt Red.
