The ninth episode of the second season begins with a cameraman filming the emotions of pupils at Jujutsu High. The question is, what do the pupils think of Gojo Satoru? It becomes a montage of several characters discussing how they regard Gojo, with Yuji and Megumi claiming that they owe him their life and the rest of them simply making fun of him. However, everyone agreed that Satoru Gojo is truly the strongest.

2. Gojo Satoru Killed Hanami

Gojo enters the railway lines to attack the wicked creatures preying on innocent people. Hanami and Jogo swing their fists at the greatest sorcerer, but Gojo decides to fling them around with martial arts. When Hanami attempted to break through Gojo’s infinite, Gojo grabbed Hanami by the throat and pushed the spirit against a wall, enhancing his own cursed energy. He increased his energy just enough such that Hanami became a puddle of violet liquid against the tube walls after Gojo splattered it into fragments resulting in the end of Hanami.

3. Thousand Transfigured Humans Arrive at Shibuya Station

The program then cut to a flashback in which Geto informed Jogo, Hanami, and Mahito that the Prison Realm was built from the remains of the Buddhist monk Genshin and could seal everything. Meanwhile, Yuji approached a terrified woman sitting on the platform, who revealed that she had witnessed everyone turning into monsters before her eyes and that she had been left behind because they had had enough of them. Yuji realized right away that Mahito had prepared something nasty to target Gojo. Her head grotesquely transformed into a bloated human moments later, and she died. The scene again changes and moves to Gojo Satoru listening about the arrival of a train for Harajuku which is filled with Mahito and a thousand disfigured humans.

In the middle of the fight between Gojo and Jogo, the train for Harajuku arrives at the station. As civilians rushed to board the train, the doors opened, and a thousand transfigured humans surged out. Mahito, Jogo, and Choso coordinated their attacks, resulting in a massive carnage that pushed Satoru over the edge. Gojo surprised everyone by triggering his Domain Expansion, albeit just for 0.2 seconds. The civilians should be able to tolerate a 0.2-second-long Infinite Void without dying. Nearly a thousand transfigured individuals were killed within 5 minutes of Satoru Gojo deactivating the 0.2-second Unlimited Void.

5. Suguru Geto Finally Approaches Gojo

While Gojo manages to deflect most of the threats posed by the disfigured humans, it takes too much out of him, leading him to be caught by surprise by his old friend, Suguru Geto. Geto appeared and greeted him. Gojo was stunned to see his late best buddy, whom he had killed with his own hands during the “Night Parade of a Hundred Demons.” Suddenly, the prison world appears and arrests Gojo. Gojo, realizing his defeat, asked Geto who he was. Geto removed the stitches and the top of his brow to show a brain with a mouth known as Kenjaku. They had a conversation about Geto and Yuta’s fight and then the scene shifted to Harajaku, where a small drone-like version of Mechamaru arrived and informed Yuji Itadori that Gojo had been sealed.
