Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode 9 (also known as Jujutsu Kaisen Episode 33) is one of the most important episodes of the first half of the season. It marks the sealing of Satoru Gojo and the start of the Shibuya Incident arc.
The episode begins with a montage of several characters describing how they see Gojo, with Yuji and Megumi stating that they owe him their lives and the rest of them simply insulting him. However, everyone agreed that Satoru Gojo is indeed the strongest.
The episode then cuts to Fukutoshin B5F, picking up from where the previous episode left off. Gojo singled out Hanami as his target and turned off his Infinity to simultaneously attack both Curses, with Choso having faded into the background.
Gojo broke off Jogo’s arm, leading Hanami to believe that they were no longer hindered by the civilians. Hanami mistakenly took this as a sign to use their Cursed Technique, and in doing so, they had to deactivate their Domain Amplification as they couldn’t use both at once.
Jogo warned them not to, but by then it appeared to be too late. With the Domain Amplification turned off, Gojo had access to Hanami’s person and grabbed onto their eye-branches, which Megumi had deduced to be their weak points. He ripped them out of Hanami, rendering them disoriented.
Jogo noted that he only survived Gojo’s attack because of the Domain Amplification. He was amazed that Gojo could inflict so much damage without using his Cursed Technique. Just then, Choso tried to interfere with the battle, but Gojo realized that he was a Death Painting and not as active as the two curses and thus could be dealt with later.
However, Pseudo-Geto enters the scene and activates the Prison Realm. Gojo sees Geto, and three years of his youth instantly flash in his mind. The criteria for capturing Gojo is to keep him close to the open Prison Realm for one minute (whether in real life or in memory). Since three years have passed in Gojo’s mind, he is finally captured.
The episode also reveals how Geto survived his execution in Jujutsu Kaisen 0. It featured Mechamaru’s return as well and gave insight into the overarching plot that the villains have in place.
In conclusion, Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode 9 was an emotional episode filled with technical action-based scenes. It provided much information regarding the Prison Realm being imparted by “Geto” and revealed how Geto survived his execution in Jujutsu Kaisen 0.
