Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode 9 Recap: How does Gojo Satoru’s immense power shape the course of events in the latest episode?
The episode begins with a question that appears on the screen: “What do you think of Gojo Satoru?” The answer differs from one character to another, as Gojo has left distinct impressions of himself on people. However, one undeniable fact remains constant: Gojo Satoru is the most powerful, leaving no room for doubt.
But this lively and cheerful setting soon takes a sombre turn when it takes us back to Shibuya Station. The battle has already begun now and Gojo is pissed off at the audacity of the enemies to think that they will stay unharmed and unscathed after disrespecting him.
It’s the third time Gojo confronts Hanami and Jogo. They had several encounters in the first season.
Jogo and Hanami attack him at once. Skilled at martial arts, Gojo, who had deactivated his limitless, rips Jogo’s hand off. The menacing expression in Gojo’s eyes that reflects the pleasure he is experiencing in the midst of battle is undeniably intimidating.
Gojo uses his cursed energy to attack on the smallest possible scale in the crowd. Hanami, foolishly, lifts up his amplification and digs up its own grave.
Gojo immediately steals the chance, climbs onto Hanami, and plucks out his stem horns, thereby disabling it for the time being. That sinister smile and a crazed look in his eyes leave us pondering just what Gojo Satoru might become when provoked.
He is now attacked by Choso, a death painting with a physical body. Jogo and Hanami use this distraction to attack him from both sides, but with his limitless turned back on, they fail to touch him, let alone hit him with their punches.
While Jogo struggles to break the barrier, Gojo deals with Hanami. With the extraordinary and magnanimous power of his cursed energy, Hanami explodes under it without leaving a single trace. To think that Gojo has such power sends chills down the body.
We are taken back in time through flashbacks, witnessing Geto and his associates scheming about the Prison Realm while playing Mahjong. Their intentions are crystal clear – to use it as a means to possibly remove Gojo from the picture indefinitely, if not for all time. Keep Gojo Satoru engaged for one minute by keeping him within the range to seal him.
It was at that moment that we sensed that impending doom was steadily approaching.
After killing Hanami, he chases the volcano head to kill him.
They need him to lose his composure and be on his edge to launch their final attack, and Geto is eagerly waiting for it.
Meanwhile, our focus shifts to Yuji. He finds a woman at the station and learns a chilling truth- passengers aboard the train started transforming into monstrous entities, rendering her “unnecessary,” as there were already enough monsters on board.
In that harrowing moment, both viewers and Yuji share a gut-wrenching realisation. Firstly, Mahito was there a few moments ago, and secondly, the train is en route to Gojo on the fifth floor underground, and innocent lives are at stake.

As the train eventually arrives and people celebrate their escape from that dreadful place, the transfigured humans unleash chaos. They embark on a mindless killing spree, devouring and slaughtering every unsuspecting human in their path.
In an attempt to provoke Gojo and push him to his limits, Choso and Mahito focus their efforts on disturbing his mental equilibrium, plunging him into profound contemplation. They employ their techniques to tragically end the lives of civilians, resulting in devastating and horrific bloodshed.
Perhaps they had assumed that the abundance of innocent civilians would constrain Gojo’s actions, but he swiftly dispels that notion. Although his domain expansion technique may not be an option, he soon demonstrates that he can confront their sinister schemes by manipulating his techniques if he so desires.
In a remarkable feat, this man summoned a Domain Expansion: Infinite Void, on that platform and single-handedly defeated one thousand transfigured humans in 299 seconds to protect the remaining survivors.
What makes this achievement even more praiseworthy is the speed with which he acted to preserve the sanity of those who endured.
He manages to thwart the majority of the threats posed by the latest element of the battle, but it drains him too much, allowing him to be caught off guard by his old friend, Suguru Geto.
Even as he physically dominates his opponents, the ongoing struggle begins to wear on Gojo’s mental state.
Gojo gets overwhelmed with emotion when he sees Geto. His eyes reflect sheer disbelief, while his face registers the shock of encountering his dearest friend. In that fleeting moment, he finds himself in a serious quandary, unsure whether this is reality or a clever transformation technique.
In a pivotal moment, Gojo momentarily hesitates, providing Geto with the opportunity he needs to enact the Prison Domain technique, rendering Gojo completely motionless. In the blink of an eye, he seals Gojo, securing his capture.
Leveraging his prior friendship with Gojo, Geto cunningly employs it as his ace in the hole, and swiftly captures him in the prison realm.
Finally, Gojo asks the question, “So, who exactly are you?”
The Big Time Revelation is about to happen. The real identity of Geto is about to be disclosed.
Deceiving Gojo under the guise of his once-best friend ranks as the utmost folly one could commit.
Despite Gojo’s keen perception through his six eyes, his very essence sensed that the figure before him was not the real Geto Suguru. It is then that the imposter reveals that he was inhabiting Geto’s body through an ancient technique.
This technique permits the possessor to utilise the host body as long as consciousness is transferred. In this case, since Gojo had not provided Geto with a proper burial, the intruder was able to claim his body. What’s more, this possession also granted the intruder access to Geto’s formidable cursed technique.
As Pseudo Geto asserts that Gojo is the biggest obstacle to his grand design, Gojo confronts him with the haunting memory of his defeat at the hands of Yuta, just before he ultimately met his demise at his hands.
