Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode 5 Recap
With Gojo Satoru mastering the use of cursed energy, he’s assigned more solo missions, as is the case with Getou. However, the weight of these missions starts to take a toll on Getou. He falls into a state of despair, repeatedly undertaking missions and questioning his commitment to protecting non-sorcerers. Slowly, he begins to develop resentment towards them but tries to suppress these emotions.
It’s during this turbulent time that he crosses paths with Yuki Tsukumo, a special grade sorcerer dedicated to preventing curses from ever materializing. She offers him guidance regarding his true feelings and forces him to confront a difficult choice: whether to harbor hatred towards non-sorcerers or shield them from harm. Getou’s internal turmoil intensifies when his close friend, Yuki Haibara, loses her life in a mission gone awry. He reflects on the harsh reality that being a sorcerer often means witnessing the deaths of many colleagues in the line of duty.
The turning point in his journey arrives when he’s assigned a mission in the countryside to exorcise a curse. He discovers that the villagers have imprisoned two children with the ability to harness cursed energy and unjustly pinned the village’s problems on them. This injustice fills Getou with overwhelming disgust and anger. In a fit of rage, he massacres the villagers, resulting in the deaths of 112 people, including his parents. It’s at this moment that he resolves to protect sorcerers exclusively, believing that the only way to achieve this is by eradicating all non-sorcerers and eliminating any possibility of curses manifesting.
When Getou reveals his sinister plans to Gojo, their friendship is tested. Gojo cannot bring himself to kill Getou, and so Getou takes control of the Star Religious Group to begin preparations for his chilling agenda. Gojo takes young Megumi under his wing before the Ze’nin Clan can claim him.
As the recap draws to a close, the narrative shifts back to the present, offering a tantalizing glimpse of familiar faces—Itadori, Megumi, Nobara, and Gojo—hinting at the thrilling events that await in the ongoing story.
Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 continues to enthrall viewers through its compelling narrative, stunning animation, and rich character development.
