Episode 5 of ‘Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2’ finally answered a long-awaited question regarding the mystery of Suguru Geto. In Jujutsu Kaisen 0, fans saw a different version of Suguru from the more recent one, and everyone wanted to know what happened to the Special Grade Curse User.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 is the sequel to the popular anime ‘Jujutsu Kaisen’ which is based on the manga by Gege Akutami. The anime which is produced by MAPPA studios follows the life of Yuji Itadori, a high school student who becomes involved in the world of Jujutsu after swallowing one of Sukuna’s fingers.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode 4: Recap
Episode 4 of Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 was one of the more intense episodes so far. The much-awaited fight between Toji and Gojo finally happened in this episode, where Gojo can master his Limitless Techniques.
Toji also managed to defeat Geto and kill Riko Amanai, before losing to Gojo. Episode 4 ended with Gojo and Suguru retrieving the body of the Star Plasma Vessel from one of the Group’s facilities in the city.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode 5: Gojo’s Best Friend
Almost a year late since the death of Riko Amanai, Gojo is testing out his techniques with Shoko and Suguru. He has managed to completely master his Limitless techniques and now is the strongest in Jujutsu Kaisen High.
After the whole Time Plasma Vessel Incident, Suguru became more conflicted with his ideologies. While Gojo was busy doing missions on his own, Suguru began to question why Jujutsu even exists in the first place. He looks back at the day he decided to spare the lives of the Star Religious Group and regrets it.
We finally see more of the special grade curse user, Yuki Tsukumo, in Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2. Fans will remember that Yuki is the mentor to Aoi Todo, one of the strongest characters in Jujutsu Kaisen.
She has a deep conversation with Suguru Geto regarding Non-Sorceres. She aims at irradicating cursed energy to which Geto offers a solution to removing all non-curse users. Yuki says that it is the easiest solution to her problem but the least sensible one as well.
After losing young Yu Haibara, Suguru’s enthusiastic junior, the unsure young sorcerer revised the idea that being a jujutsu sorcerer is like running a marathon where the end of the road is just a mountain made of his fellow sorcerers’ corpses. On a mission following that incident, Suguru finds two young girls being mistreated by non-sorcerers for having curse-related abilities.
Suguru makes his decision and kills 112 residents of the village. Masamichi Yaga who is their teacher, informs Gojo of the incident who is as shocked and confused as the rest of them at Jujutsu Kaisen High. Meanwhile, Geto meets up with Shoko in Shinjuku.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode 5: What happens to Suguru now?
Shoko asks Suguru if he is innocent to which Suguru denies it and tells her of his plan to create a world without non-curse users (humans). Shoko calls Gojo and tells him that Geto is in Shinjuku. Gojo tracks him down and the two have a pretty explosive standoff.
Gojo asks Suguru to explain himself and reminds him that he told him they should not kill people if there’s no point to do so. Suguru tells him that there is a point and that he is doing it for the greater good. Geto tells him that he has decided how he plans to live and he can kill him if he wants to, but Gojo is not able to do that, since Geto is his best friend.
Episode 5 ends with Geto becoming the new leader of the Star Religious Group. Meanwhile, Gojo meets up with a young Megumi Fushiguro and decides to bring him to Jujutsu Kaisen High. Episode 5 also marks the end of ‘Gojo’s Past Arc’ and will likely continue from the ‘Shinjuku Incident’.
Episode 5 of Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 is now available on Netflix.
