Warning! Contains spoilers for Jujutsu Kaisen Season 2 Episode #9!Jujutsu Kaisen proved that Gojo’s Past arc at the beginning of the season wasn’t “filler,” as some fans labeled it, despite not being connected to the show’s main plot this season. Of course, even if that arc wasn’t directly connected to the plot of the Shibuya Incident it would still be a great exploration of Gojo and Geto’s relationship and motivations, but now the location the strangeness of it at the beginning of Part 2 made it perfect. sense.
In Episode 9 Season 2 of Jujutsu Kaisen, Geto appears and traps Gojo in the Prison Realm, which was the main target of the Shibuya Incident. To execute this plan, Gojo must stand still for an entire minute, which initially sounds like an extremely difficult task given his extreme power level. However, that was only a minute in Gojo’s mind, and upon seeing Geto’s body, the sorcerer quickly remembered the events of his past, seen in Gojo’s Past section. This is more than enough to satisfy the sealing conditions, thus trapping the most powerful witch in the series for the foreseeable future.
Gojo’s past is related to the Shibuya incident of Jujutsu Kaisen
This gave the fantastic backstory about Gojo’s past a direct connection to the main plot of the series, but it did play an important role in revealing more about some of the series’ most important characters. series. While he may not be one of the main trio of Yuji, Nobara and Megumi, Gojo is the strongest witch in the series and is therefore extremely important. Likewise, his old friend Geto appears to be the main antagonist of the series, so seeing his motivations seems important to contextualize his actions in the rest of the series. Of course, this is less important now that it’s revealed that his body has been taken over by another witch, but this character’s journeys still feel important regardless of their relevance. How to get to the main plot.
Regardless of its importance or how interesting it could be, the placement of the “Gojo’s past” arc at the beginning of the second season seems a bit awkward since it has been a while since fans have seen the main character of the series. Since most of the other characters introduced in that arc are dead, a direct connection between Gojo’s past and the Shibuya Incident that followed is questionable. However, the memories shown during Gojo’s sealing proved why it was needed in that location, as without it the villain’s plan would not have succeeded.
Jujutsu Kaisen proves that every detail matters
As the Shibuya Incident continues, this arc may have even more surprising connections to Gojo’s brutal past even as the incredibly powerful sorcerer is incapacitated. Even if not, its involvement in this episode should forever silence any further accusations of this part being filler. Hopefully, this example Jujutsu Kaisen established will make fans a little more hesitant in the future about writing passages that seem off-topic and become irrelevant filler.
