Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode 16 was a thrilling experience till the end. The first half is dedicated to Toji vs Megumi, as father and son engage in a battle to the death without being aware of the connection between them.
When Toji finally recognized his son, he stabbed him in the head to prevent him from losing control again. Another amazing part of the episode is obviously Jogo vs Sukuna and the animation is absolutely beautiful. Both use fire techniques, but the Curse King has the upper hand.
However, if these battles weren’t shocking enough, the episode ends with Megumi unconscious and a mysterious creature entering the scene. Let’s dig deeper to find out if Megumi will die in Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode 16. Warning: this article contains spoilers from the manga!
Does Megumi die in Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode 16?
Megumi was seriously injured after fighting Haruta, but he survived thanks to Sukuna. As soon as Sukuna defeated Jogo, he sensed Mahoraga’s presence and rushed to Megumi’s side. Unable to find a way to defeat Haruta, Megumi uses her trump card despite Gojo’s suggestions to the contrary.
Megumi has tried to summon Mahoraga many times before but always stopped at the right moment. First, he made hand signs during his fight with Sukuna outside the Juvenile Detention Center. Then, he tried it again in a cave under Yasaochi Bridge.
However, he finally summons his strongest Shibuya in the Shibuya arc. Megumi lost consciousness due to severe injuries. The fight between him and Haruta will be fully adapted in Episode 17 of Part 2, in a flashback sequence.
Mahoraga is a double-edged sword so summoning him will kill Megumi along with his opponent. For better or worse, Sukuna saves Megumi by defeating Mahoraga. Sadly, he also destroyed the entire Shibuya ward with him. He also hints that he has some important plans regarding Megumi.
