On Wednesday, the spoilers for Jujutsu Kaisen chapter 236 dropped, and fans were not expecting what happened.
In the previous chapter, after Gojo released his ultimate HOLLOW, which destroyed Mahoraga and caused serious injuries to Sukuna.
Sukuna’s healing was weaker, and he was in a pretty dire state, as Gojo had not taken much damage and his healing had gone back up after four consecutive Black Flashes.
The community was all but assured that Gojo’s victory would be announced in Chapter 236.
But, when the chapter started with Suguru Geto greeting Gojo, everyone believed it to be a flashback, but as the chapter went on, the conversation between them moved, and it became clear what it was.
Gojo had been defeated, and this was his final moment, where Suguru Geto, Kento Nanami, and Haibara came to meet him.
The chapter then showed Gojo lying on the floor with blood gushing from his mouth.
Sukuna then explained how he killed Gojo, after understanding how Mahoraga adapted to Gojo’s infinity.
The community, especially Gojo fans, were devastated and could not believe what author Gege Akutami had done.
Meanwhile, there are some parts of the chapter that feel confusing, which has given some hope for his comeback.
First of all, Gojo’s head was not cut off, meaning he should still be able to use the reverse cursed technique.
The second was his mention of his father, saying that there were some unfinished things, and now Shoko would get them done.
Third was him saying goodbye to his dead friend; this is one of the major points for his revival, as after death one would bid farewell to people who are alive.
Bidding farewell to his already-dead friends may be a sign of him coming back from death. This is also not very far-fetched, as he has done this before against Toji.
The final point is that Yuta and Shoko both can heal others using the reverse cursed technique, and Kashimo has already entered the battle.
So while he distracts Sukuna, Yuta or Shoko might be able to heal him and bring him back into the fight.
What are your thoughts? Do you believe that Gojo is alive, or is he truly dead now?
