Chapter 260 gave fans a small light of hope when the chapter featured a conclusive panel with a small portion of Gojo and his six eyes. Also, Sukuna’s reaction when he saw the shadow of the “ghost he buried with his own hands” also hinted that Gojo Satoru might be back in his full form and that the rematch between the King of Curses and the Strongest Jujutsu Sorcerer is finally happening.

However, the recent spoilers for Chapter 261 may have revealed the truth behind Gojo’s “return” in the Jujutsu Kaisen story. According to the spoilers, while the physical form of Gojo Satoru has made a comeback, his body is not being controlled by him.

Warning: Spoilers Ahead

Jujutsu Kaisen Spoilers Explain Gojo Satoru’s “Return”

While Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 261 is scheduled to be released on May 26, 2024, the spoilers for the chapter have recently surfaced on the internet, and by the looks of it, the upcoming chapter will also be a banger. However, the sad part is that the chapter has confirmed the deaths of two main characters: Gojo Satoru and Kenjaku.

According to the spoilers, Yuta Okkotsu, the prodigal sorcerer, and his companion curse, Rika, were able to consume Kenjaku and utilize his Innate curse technique. Kenjaku’s cursed technique allowed him to switch bodies and plant his brain and his consciousness in another person, allowing him to use the other person’s cursed technique.

By using Kenjaku’s technique, Yuta Okkotsu switched bodies with Gojo to get the advantage of limitless and the six eyes and use them against the King of Curses for the final battle. This battle will most likely start after chapter 261, and it will surely be the most epic rematch in the history of manga.

Yuta Okkotsu is the Perfect Character to Take Over Gojo Satoru

Although Yuta Okkotsu consuming Kenjaku and taking over Gojo’s body might have confirmed the deaths of the two characters, it might have given the sorcerers a chance to finally defeat the King of Curses. Also, Yuta might be the best choice for taking over Gojo’s body because he is ready to become the monster that is needed to fight against Sukuna.

The spoilers of Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 261 have revealed that in order to defeat Sukuna, Gojo had to become a monster(symbolically) and go to extreme lengths. It took away a part of his humanity, and such sacrifice is difficult. According to the spoilers, Yuta is the only one who is ready to make this sacrifice.

Also, Yuta and Gojo are distant relatives, as they share a common ancestor. Thus, Yuta might be the only one who can perfectly use the array of cursed techniques that Gojo’s body still carries with it. Gojo was the most difficult fight for Sukuna, and Yuta bringing him back once again may give the sorcerers a chance to finally put an end to the King of curses.
