Recap Of Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode 4
In Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode 4, titled “Hidden Inventory Part 4,” significant events took place. Toji Fushiguro emerged victorious in his encounter with Suguru Geto, using the Inverted Spear of Heaven to inflict injuries. Afterward, he handed over Riko Amanai’s body to the Time Vessel Association and gained insight into their origins.
In a conversation with Shiu Kong, it was revealed that they orchestrated Kuroi’s kidnapping to wear down Gojo’s Group. Once Toji left the Association, he was confronted by a revitalized Satoru Gojo. Satoru divulged that he had successfully mastered the Reversed Cursed Technique and healed himself.
With Toji’s vast knowledge about Limitless and the Six Eyes, Gojo found himself unable to defeat him using only Red. This compelled Gojo to employ Hollow Purple. Despite utilizing the Spear and the Chain of a Thousand Miles, Toji’s arrogance led to his defeat. As he neared death, Toji disclosed to Gojo the existence of his child, who would be sold to the Zen’in clan in a few years.
Subsequently, Gojo and Geto recovered Amanai’s body amidst eerie clapping from the Association members. The turn of events indicated that the paths of the friends had diverged from this point onward.
